When War Games Go Live: “Staging” a “Humanitarian War” against “SOUTHLAND”

by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky

On November 02 2010, more than four months prior to the onset of Operation Odyssey Dawn, France and the UK announced the conduct of war games under Operation “SOUTHERN MISTRAL 2011” against “AN IMAGINARY COUNTRY’ called “SOUTHLAND”, living under a “DICTATORSHIP”  which allegedly “was responsible for an attack against France’s national interests”.

The Franco-British (humanitarian) air operation against “SOUTHLAND” was to be carried out pursuant to an IMAGINARY “UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION NO: 3003”.

The war games were scheduled to start on March 21, 2011. THESE FRANCO-BRITISH WAR GAMES  NEVER TOOK PLACE. OPERATION “SOUTHERN MISTRAL” WENT LIVE ON MARCH 19, 2011 (two days prior to the scheduled date).

Still think the NATO intervention in Libya is anything but a planned regime change?  Read the rest of this article here.

Lynch Law and Summary Executions in Rebel-Held Libya | Black Agenda Report

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

“The world’s most imperial-dependent, ill-disciplined and whining ‘liberation movement’ is still blaming black ‘mercenaries’ and soldiers from Chad for its failures in the field.” Chad, meanwhile, has officially asked the “international coalition” to protect its civilians from the rebels, who have executed “dozens” of Chadian migrant workers. In rebel-held Libya, black Africans and Gaddafi supporters are the people in need of protection.

“Dozens of Chadians have been ‘singled out’ and ‘executed,’ falsely accused of acting as mercenaries for Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, according to Chad.”

The African nation of Chad has called on Libya’s Euro-American “humanitarian” overseers to protect Chadian citizens from lynching at the hands of rebels backed by the West. The government in N’Djamena, which certainly has no interest in antagonizing the Euro-American juggernaut that has assumed a “responsibility to protect” whomever it designates as “civilians” in the territory of its northern neighbor, issued a formal request for “international coalition forces involved in Libya and international human rights organizations to stop these abuses against Chadians and other migrant Africa workers.” Dozens of Chadians have been “singled out” and “executed,” falsely accused of acting as mercenaries for Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, according to Chad, 300,000 of whose citizens were among the 1.5 million black African migrant laborers in Libya at the time of the February revolt.

CrossTalk: Global Intervasions

In this edition of Peter Lavelle’s CrossTalk: Interventions followed by invasions don’t seem to go out of fashion. It is common practice that Western militaries get stuck in foreign lands and for an indefinite period of time. Yes, empires can bomb countries, but can they restore states after breaking them up? And will this intervention syndrome eventually turn into a political cancer? Guests: John Rees, Khariri Abaza and Omar Turbi.

Omar Turbi: When I was in Benghazi I talked to the people down there, I found out for myself that they talked to some of the soldiers that belonged to Ghadafi, are loyalists, and they had been given a mandate to come to town, level the town of 900,000 people literally level the town, rape the women and kill every man from 18 to 40…

Peter Lavelle: Well Omar,… we just hear this from people like you… There is no evidence of this except people like you who come on programs like mine… it’s never corroborated outside of that…

It’s about time everyone started asking for undeniable proof before consenting to military intervention in another countries affairs.

The Price Of Dignity In Libya « The Cynical Arab

Roqayah Chamseddine’s poignant article brilliantly cuts through the media and political hype surrounding the current situation in Libya.

“And so, where is the dignity in shaking the bloodied hands of an empire which touts its undying allegiance to “humanitarianism” yet unashamedly lines streets with corpses tagged “collateral damage”?”

As the Anglo-American French coalition sustains its “humanitarian” military assault on Libya with a fiery downpour of missiles and CIA operatives alongside British special forces and MI6 intelligence officers continue to work in Libya, some for weeks, “as part of a shadow force of Westerners” the mainstream body of activists residing in the United States of America have raised the Libyan flag in solidarity with calls for air strikes against Libya.  Read the rest here.

Congress powerless as hawks attack Libya

Obama’s crime syndicate made it clear who runs this country and it’s not congress or the US citizens.  The U.S. didn’t blink when Israel spent 3 weeks bombing Gaza killing 1400 people (900 civilians, 300 children.) Even now when they’re still bombing Gaza, no talk of a UN resolution much less a “no-fly” zone or backing the Palestinians in an insurrection.  …The leaders of Saudi Arabia, Barhain and Yemen continue to kill civilian protestors but Obama just says “Now ya’ll play nice!”

Maybe it’s because Libya ‘had’ an independent Central Bank and a nationalised oil company whose profits were being plowed back into the population providing free health and education as well as subsidised housing.  All that money going to waste on the middle class and very little if any going to western pockets.

Well those two things were sorted on day 2 (March 19th) when the “loose-knit, localized and factionalized opposition lacking the basic military necessities of command, control and communication” rebels managed to organise themselves and created a new Central Bank and new National Oil company.

I suppose all the billions of dollars that the US seized from Ghadafi and Libya could go into the new bank for use by the newly liberated Libya – but no!  Hilary’s going to spend it on rebuilding Japan and arming the Libyan rebels.

It’s a great game!  Trump up bullshit charges against a countries leader (WMDs, Osama Bin Laden, Drug Trafficking, killing civilians,- stop me if any of this sounds familiar!) and then use it to justify siezing financial assets and destroying the country’s military defenses, their power and water supplies, their food production and education systems, and blockading supplies of food, water and medicines.  Let this simmer for 1 to 10 years until the population think they cannot stand any more then rush in with the full might of the U.S. arsenal to really teach those foreigners a lesson about not playing according to our rules!!!

The U.S. have tried the “insurrection” trick before when the CIA backed a Kurdish uprising after the Gulf War.  Having promised the rebels the world, they then reneged and left the unfortunates to Saddam’s (lack of) mercy.  If the Libyan rebellion fails, get set for the “Ghadafi Is The Most Evil Person in the World” show as a prelude to a full-scale, professional U.N. (read as U.S.) invasion.

If you don’t like what I’m saying here, don’t blame me.  I’m only summarising the facts.
