The Scoop on Libya
Tony Cartalucci, Contributing Writer
The Anglo-American "globocrat" establishment is no longer hiding its support for the now admittedly armed rebellion spreading across Libya. The rebellion has been met by a defiant Qaddafi who may have more support than the corporate owned media has revealed and the rebels may need "extra" assistance from their Western sponsors, lest they end up in a "Bay of Pigs-like" scenario.
While Libyan opposition leader Ibrahim Sahad leads the rhetorical charge from Washington D.C., his National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL) on the ground is armed to the teeth, as it has been throughout its 20 year history of attempted CIA backed rebellions against Qaddafi. In 1984, the NFSL tried to overthrow Qaddafi in a failed armed coup. The Daily Globe and Mail also recently confirmed that the NFSL along with the Libyan National Army, both under Sahad's new National Conference of Libyan Opposition (NCLO), had both "attempted coups and assassinations against Col. Gadhafi in the 1980s."
By the corporate media's own admissions then, Qaddafi is not battling unarmed civilians, but heavily armed, foreign backed militants who may yet have their efforts augmented with US air cover and additional arms deliveries. The rhetorical calls from the globalist think-tanks and the likes of Libya's Ibrahim Sahad for a no-fly zone have now shifted over to globalist yes-men like David Cameron and Hillary Clinton who claim military assets are being moved into place.
Senator Lieberman during a joint CNN interview with Senator McCain, went as far as repeatedly and openly calling for additional arms to be sent to rebel groups on the ground, recognizing them as the legitimate government, as well as repeating the call for the no-fly zone already on the table. McCain built on Lieberman's statements claiming the US should "stand up for democracy" not only across the Arab world but as far as China as well, confirming the scale and reach of the globalists' agenda. UK PM David Cameron has also called for providing additional arms to rebel leaders, clarifying the globalist consensus and ensuring a protracted bloodbath ensues.
With characters like Lieberman already calling for the recognition of the "revolutionary government," Ibrahim Sahad's NCLO and the various groups that fall under it will undoubtedly constitute Libya's new government should Qaddafi fall. How the rest of Libya takes the new government is unknown, with Libya itself being precariously cobbled together and Qaddafi's rule being one of the few common denominators that makes Libya - "Libya."
Libya consists of various tribes, Berbers and Arabs, African refugees, as well as expatriate work forces from China and South Asia, all combined under Qaddafi and his localized revolutionary committees. When they fall, chaos and infighting will ensue and the blood soaked catastrophe that the West has triggered will only be compounded. Foreigner workers have been leaving the country by the thousands - these too are lives destroyed, forced to return to their home countries of China, Bangladesh, and neighboring nations in North Africa, jobless and with empty hands. There are also the Libyan refugees already being turned back by the EU and now suffering in limbo.
While the West points the finger of blame at Qaddafi, they are the ones who triggered and are fueling the unrest. By supplying weapons, providing air cover, and recognizing armed rebels as the legitimate government of Libya, they are now compounding the consequences of this engineered conflagration. From the corporate owned media, to the corporate sponsored think-tanks that supply them their talking points, to the puppet politicians standing behind the West's symbolic podiums of powers, they are the ones destroying Libya. Be sure to thank these corporate combines in kind, the next time you address your shopping list by boycotting these multinational megalomaniacs.
