Lawless, Leaderless Libya Becoming Terror Hub

posted by Little Nicky Machiavelli As the French government calls for international action to halt the development of Libya, a failed state since Gadaffi was deposed, as a hub of international terrorism, we wonder when western leaders will learn that all their interventions so far, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Ukraine, Mali, South Sudan etc. have caused far bigger problems that the ones they hoped to solve.

Lawless Libya - Western Intervention Wrecked A Prosperous State


Libya Closes Tripoli's Only Airport After Rockets Fired

Tripoli airport: No planes taking off or landing until further notice. (Picture: www.dw.com/

The only operational airport in the Libyan capital of Tripoli has suspended all flights. Rival groups have been fighting in Tripoli suburbs over the past few days.We have mentioned many times that prior to the ousting of the Gadaffi regime and the murder of Colonel Gadaffi, the Libyan dictator, in an Obama led, US / EU / NATO regime change coup in 2011, Libya was the richest and most advanced state on the African continent. Now it is a failed state embroiled in a tripartate civil war, and things don't look likely to imptove any time soon.

Clashes in Libya's capital of Tripoli have caused a 48-hour closure of Mitiga International airport, the city's only operational airport. A spokesman for the state airline Libyan Airlines said authorities closed the airport on Friday after some rockets were fired in its direction. Flights were diverted to Misrata airport, which lies 190 kilometers (120 miles) east of Tripoli.

Rival militias have been fighting for days in suburbs south of Tripoli. The clashes erupted on Monday and have left at least 39 dead, including civilians, and wounded 119 others, Libya's Health Ministry said on Thursday.

Though a ceasefire deal was agreed to on Thursday, the conflict reignited on Thursday and continued into Friday.

Tripoli has been at the center of Libya's seven-year conflict, which began with an uprising that overthrew and killed longtime ruler Moammar Gadhafi. The country is currently governed by rival authorities in the Libyan capital and in the east, each side backed by various militias. The fighting has resulted in refugees migrating to Europe to flee the conflict, many using fragile boats in an attempt to cross the Mediterranean Sea.

East Libyan forces launch strikes after air base attack

East Libyan forces have killed a number of military personnel loyal to the UN backed Government of National Accord (GNA) in a series of air strikes in the southern region of Jufra, according to reports from Reuters and AFP, three days after dozens of their men were killed in a surprise attack on an air base.

This latest development in Libya's tripartate civil war, being fought mainly in the remote desert regions in the south of the country, where forces aligned with the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA) have skirmished since late last year with opponents aligned with a GNA troops since last year. The latest fighting has not yet been linked to ISIS units that have established footholds in southern Libya.

The two sides represent the main factions in a sporadic conflict between shifting alliances that have fought for power in Libya since the muder of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

A resident in Jufra said LNA air strikes had caused casualties, though the number of dead and injured was unclear.

Details of Thursday's attack on Brak Al-Shati air base, about 150 miles (240 km) south of Jufra, are still emerging. The LNA says as many as 141 were killed, some of the by summary execution (sounds like an ISIS method of waging war,) and has pledged a forceful response. Medical and local officials said on Friday that at least 89 had died, but that the count was as yet incomplete.

Human Rights Watch cited a local hospital official as saying that five corpses had arrived at a local hospital with bound arms, and that six more were disfigured in a way that suggested their heads had been run over by a vehicle. The HRW statement on Sunday also quoted an LNA soldier as saying some civilian workers were killed, and that he witnessed nine of his comrades being executed.

"As they were shooting they were shouting, 'You apostates, you enemies of God,'" the soldier was quoted as saying.

A spokesman for the 13th Brigade, also known as the Third Force, has said the raid on Brak Al-Shati base was a response to attacks against another air base that it controls to the south, and that those they attacked were armed.

Violence In Libya The Worst In Two Years

If you read this blog and other New Media news and opinion sites you will be well aware that the 2011 regime change operation 'led from behind' by Barack Hussein Obama, ostensibly for the purpose of removing Libyan dictator Muammar Gadaffi and replacinmg him with w western style, gay friendly, immigrant loving liberal democracy, having removed the dictator, only succeeded in turning the country which under him had been the most prosperous and socially advanced on the African continent, into a chaotic failed state, torn by a tripartate civil conflict.

Thus you will not be surprised to hear that in spite of western efforts to stabilise Libya, fighting between the factions in the civil war is escalating once more after a lull.

Read all:

The US Helped Overthrow Gadaffi And Create A Liberal Democracy. Now It Is A Failed State.

“We are helpless and not being able to do anything against this deliberate destruction to the oil installations. NOC urges all faithful and honorable people of this homeland to hurry to rescue what is left from our resources before it is too late.”

The above statement from Libya’s National Oil Corp references the seizure of state oil assets by Islamic State extremists, whose influence in the country is growing exponentially as the world's attention is focused on Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Over the past year amid the power vacuum the West created by engineering the demise of Moammar Qaddafi but failed to address the poblem of what, in a country of warring tribes and sects, would replace him.

The latest IS attacks occurred in Es Sider, a large oil port closed for at least a year due to the conflict between the three groups that claim to be the legitimate government of Libya.

Reports from the most reliable sources available suggest seven guards were killed on Monday in suicide bombings while two more lost their lives on Tuesday as ISIS attacked checkpoints some 20 miles from the port. “Es Sider and Ras Lanuf, Libya’s biggest oil ports, have been closed since December 2014,” Reuters reports. “They are located between the city of Sirte, which is controlled by Islamic State, and the eastern city of Benghazi.”

ISIS also destroyed storage tanks tanks holding hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil in Es Sider and Ras Lanuf,” Ali al-Hassi, a spokesman for the the Petroleum Facilities Guard said.

Islamic State is advancing east from Sirte in order to gain control of the country’s oil infrastructure, much as the group has done in Syria and Iraq. As Middle East Eye wrote last summer, “the desert region to the south of the oil ports has been strategically cleared in a series of attacks by IS militants on security personnel and oil fields, where employees have been killed and kidnapped, and vehicles and equipment seized.”

“I expect they will try and take Sidra and Ras Lanuf and the oil fields on the west side of the oil crescent,” one oil worker said. “There are few people left to protect the oil fields apart from local security from isolated towns.”

Efforts to protect Libya’s oil are complicated immeasurably by the fractious (and that’s putting it politely) political environment.

In short: since the removal of strongman Gadaffi and his natural successors by a US, french and UK (the FUKUS axis) bombing campaign the country that was africas most prosperous and socially advanced has become a failed state, a modern day Wild West. Stable government is now a distant memory, warlords and gangsters rule without constrain in their territories.

Gaddafi’s home town falls to Islamic State in anarchic Libya

Under the rule of strongman dictator Muammar Gaddafi Libya was the most prosperous nation on the African continent and its nationals had the highest standard of living. Since the western Coalition, the FUKUS Axis led by Barack Hussein Obama (nee Barry Dunham) supported a rag tag army of dissidents, malcontents and religious fanatics by bombing the Gaddafi regime (along with much of Libya's infrastructure to oblivion, the nation has descended into near anarchy.

It is now the third major stronghold for the Sunni Islamist rebel army known as ISIS or ISIL, which declared a Caliphate to rule over all Muslims from territory it holds in Syria and Iraq.

Standing guard at a checkpoint near the front line between 'government' controlled territory and land held by the rebels, Libyan soldier Mohammed Abu Shager can see where IS militants are dug in with their heavy weaponry less than a kilometer away. The militants have taken over former dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s home city of Sirte as they exploit a civil war between two rival governments to expand the caliphate into North Africa.

“Every night they open fire on us,” said Abu Shebar, whose company holds the last position on Sirte’s western outskirts of troops loyal to one of the two warring Libyan governments, the General National Congress, which controls the capital Tripoli and most of the west of the country.

West intervention in Libya in 2011 a mistake: Italy

At last a prominent western politician has broken ranks with the Obama - led axis of warmongering. Italian foreign minister Paolo Gentiloni has admitted that Western countries got it wrong when, three years ago, France, the UK and USA (the FUKUS axis) intervened in Libya to overthrow former dictator Muammar Gaddafi and allow Islamist extremists to plunge the small but rich nation into theocratic, lawless chaos.

"Three years ago, we might have made a mistake, when international forces interfered without thinking through the scenario, what will happen afterwards. Italian voice was too weak," Paolo Gentiloni said in a TV interview with national broadcaster RAI on Friday.

Gentiloni added that stabilizing the situation in Libya and in the entire eastern Mediterranean region is a key priority of Italy's foreign policy.

Meanwhile, the US is reportedly planning to carry out more airstrikes on Libya. The God-King Obama must be missing those spontaneous orgasms he gets when the drone strikes he orders kil innocent women and children.

"An American commander has acknowledged that discussions are under way in Washington about conducting airstrikes against ISIL Takfiri militants in Libya," The Times reported on Friday.

The country has been torn apart by numerous clashes between Islamist forces allied with ISIS and rival militia groups that refuse to lay down arms. The 'organized rebel army' that the west equipped, trained and provided air support for are now turning their guns on each other in an attempt to dominate politics and the country’s vast oil resources.

The Libyan government and elected parliament moved to the eastern city of Tobruk after an armed group from the town of Misrata seized the capital and most state institutions in August. News from Libya is not reliable but rumour has it that the government recognised by the west has little power outside the compound they occupy in Tobruk

The asbove scenario is exactly what The Daily Stirrer and I were telling you would happen in 2011. Unfortunately the war loving lefties used one of their magic words, humanitarianism, and divided public opinion. Let me be clear, left wing politics is never about humanitarianis, fairness or justice, left wing politics is only ever about power, power now and pover forever.

France sees dozens of anti-Muslim incidents.
No doubt our leaders and the media will condemn the backlash from ordinary French people to the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Random attacks on decent Muslims are wrong. but how long do the elites expect us to keep showing tolerance when they have done nothing about a long standing problem.

Libya’s NATO Supported ‘Pro-Democracy’ Rebels Have Joined the Islamic State (ISIS)

The United States has attempted to claim that the only way to stop the so-called “Islamic State” in Syria and Iraq is to first remove the government in Syria. Complicating this plan are developments in Libya, benefactor of NATO’s last successful regime change campaign.

In 2011, NATO armed, funded, and backed with a sweeping air campaign militants in Libya centered around the eastern Libyan cities of Tobruk, Derna, and Benghazi. By October 2011, NATO successfully destroyed the Libyan government, effectively handing the nation over to these militants. What ensued was a campaign of barbarism, genocide, and sectarian extremism as brutal in reality as what NATO claimed in fiction was perpetrated by the Libyan government ahead of its intervention.

The so-called “rebels” NATO had backed were revealed to be terrorists led by Al Qaeda factions including the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).

CNN in an article titled, "ISIS comes to Libya," claims:

The black flag of ISIS flies over government buildings. Police cars carry the group's insignia. The local football stadium is used for public executions. A town in Syria or Iraq? No. A city on the coast of the Mediterranean, in Libya.

Fighters loyal to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are now in complete control of the city of Derna, population of about 100,000, not far from the Egyptian border and just about 200 miles from the southern shores of the European Union.

The fighters are taking advantage of political chaos to rapidly expand their presence westwards along the coast, Libyan sources tell CNN.

The black flag of Al Qaeda/ISIS has already been the only flag flying over Libya - even at the height of NATO's intervention there in 2011. The official Libyan flag has disappeared. ISIS didn't "come to" Libya, it was always there in the form of Al Qaeda's local franchises LIFG and AQIM - long-term, bitter enemies of the now deposed and assassinated Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, CNN Reported.

Geopolitical analyst Dr. Webster Tarpley in his article, "The CIA’s Libya Rebels: The Same Terrorists who Killed US, NATO Troops in Iraq," noted that the US strategy was toAl Qaeda's rise in Libya was not merely the unintended consequence of a poorly conceived plan by NATO for military intervention, but a premeditated regional campaign to first build up then use Al Qaeda as a mercenary force to overthrow and destroy a series of nations, beginning with Libya, moving across North Africa and into nations like Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and eventually Iran. From there, NATO's mercenary force would be on the borders of Russia and China ready to augment already Western-backed extremists in the Caucasus and Xinjiang regions.

Islamic State brutally crushes Sirte uprising

At least 40 civilians killed in Libyan town of Sirte after residents react to murder of a prominent iman who preached against IS.

The Islamic State group has mercilessly crushed a two-day uprising in the Libyan town of Sirte, which has been under its control since July, leaving at least 40 people dead, local sources told Middle East Eye.

District Three of Sirte - in the west of the town - had quietly resisted full IS control since militants took over, but the killing of a prominent Salafi-orientated imam from the area on 10 August appears to have sparked the uprising, which was led by members of the Ferjani tribe - the largest tribe in the town - and its local Battalion 136.

“IS surrounded District Three, which is full of ordinary civilians, including elderly people, women and children,” said a senior local figure in the town.

“There were injured people, literally dying in the streets, but no one could get in or out of the area to help them. We know that at least 40 people have been killed in the fighting, but we fear there are many more dead in District Three that we do not yet know about.”

Another resident described how two days of violence culminated in the uprising being crushed by excessive force, as IS militants surrounded the area and opened fire.

“IS entered the outskirts of District Three with tanks, shelling residential buildings with missiles, mortars and other heavy weaponry,” he said, not wanting to give his name for safety reasons. “They set fire to a medical centre with 22 injured people inside and they were burned alive. Really, this was a massacre.”

The information could not be independently verified but three people killed in the clashes have since been named on social media as the commander of Battalion 136, Ali Saadak, and two of his sons, Abubasit Ali and Mourad Ali.

Where Are Grandstanding FUKUS Axis Leaders As Libya Descends Into Oblivion

Remembering a time not so long ago when Libya was being held up by the French, UK and US governments as a striking example of benign and successful military 'humanitarian' intervention? The tyrant Gaddafi (who had the support of over 50% of adult Libyans) had been overthrown by a FUKUS Axis bombing campaign in support of a bloody revolution fought by a rag bad alliance of Islamic Fundamentalists, Tribal Warlords and Common gangsters armed with American, British and French weapons paid for by western yaxpayers.

It is worth looking again at this video of David Cameron grandstanding as a liberator in Benghazi in September 2011. He applauds the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi and tells the crowd that “your city was an example to the world as you threw off a dictator and chose freedom”. Obama and the then French President Sarkozy made similar outrageous claims to be the saviour of Libya and deliverer of democracy.

Cameron has not returned to to Benghazi since then and is not likely to do so as warring militias reduce Libya to primal anarchy in which nobody is safe.”Your friends in Britain and France will stand with you as you build your democracy,” pledged Mr Cameron to the people of Benghazi. Benghazi is now notorious thoughout the world as the city where a mob attacked the american consulate and killed all the staff while The Rent Boy President Barack Hussein Obama, who has established a reputation as The Muslim Brotherhood's Man In The White House ordered American forces based within striking distance of Benghazi, who were available to send assistance, to stand down.

All the FUKUS leader have good reason to play down that ill advised and politically motivated intervention. Cameron especially, facing political oblivion as British voters turn against war, globalism and meddling in the affiers of sovereign nations and abandon his conservative Party in droves for UKIP, a party that promises to look after British interests rather than being sidekick to whatever American President needs our support to legitimise another Imperialist adventure. What the NATO allies did in Libya in 2011, and the aftermath of the overthrow of Gaddafi has been so appalling as the country desceded into tribalism and civil war that has been raging in western Libya since July 2014, (not that you’d know about it if you only follow mainstream media.

The people whom FUKUS military campaign shoehorned into power without their having any legitimate claim to represent the people, have reduced a country that had been at peace for more than half a century to a level of violence approaching that of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

What was it that Cameron & Co destroyed? In 1967 Colonel Muammar Gaddafi took over one of the poorest and most bitterly divided nations in Africa. By the time he was assassinated by wetern backed rebels, Gaddafi had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and the best standard of living on the continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in Holland. Now Libya is a failed state, just another African basket case.

How Western Intervention Turned Africa's Richest Nation Into A Failed State

by Arthur Foxake, 21 October 2014


libya uder gadafffi
Libya, a prosperous modern nation under the tyrant Gadaffi


libya after fukus axis intervention to liberate it
Libya, after FUKUS axis intervention to overthrow the tyrant Gadaffi


It is three years this week since the Western-backed assassination of Libya's dictator, Muammar 'Mad Dog' Gaddafi. The western bombing campaign in support of a rag bag army of Islamic religious fantatics, tribal warlords and self interested gangsters led to the fall and murder of Gadaffi and members of his family and the collapse of Africa’s richest and most morder nation.

Remember David Cameron, face shining with self righteous pride, standing in front of a crowd in Tripoli and congratulating himself on Britain’s role in 'liberating' the people of Libya. Now look at the lower of the two pictures above this article; this is the liberation Britain and the FUKUS axis (France, UK and US, effectively NATO's main military powers) delivered on the unfortunate citizens. Now look at the top picture, Libya during Gadaffi's rule. Do you think anyone except the gangsters, warlords and fanatics gained from the transformation.

When Colonel Gaddafi siezed power in 1967, he became leader of one of the poorest and most corrupt nations in Africa. By the time he was assassinated Gaddafi for all his faults and there is no doubt he was a megalomaniac and a brutal tyrant who crushed opposition ruthlessly, had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita, the hightest standard of living and the best life expectancy on the continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in Holland, one of Europe's richest nations.

In the wake of the FUKUS - NATO intervention, Libya is now a failed state and its economy has collapsed. The murder of Gadaffi and his sons and close aides left a power vacuum. Elections were held and a puppet government installed but it never enjoyed the wholehearted support of the people, fifty percent of whome had approved of Gadaffi's government, knowing the alternative was chaos. As the power slipped through the puupets' fingers, militia fighters’ and gangs vie to fil the void. Oil production had virtually stopped, it has now started again, run by oil companies, their compounds heavily protected by mercenary soldiers of security firms (aka private armies) such as Blackwater.

The fall of Gaddafi created all of the country’s worst-case scenarios: Western embassies have all left, the South of the country has become a haven for terrorists, and the Northern coast a center for migrant trafficking and arms smuggling Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia have all closed their borders with Libya. This all occurs amidst a backdrop of widespread rape, assassinations and torture that complete the picture of a country that has descended into lawlessness and dystopian collapse.

Lawless, Leaderless Libya Becoming Terror Hub

posted by Little Nicky Machiavelli

The Daily Stirer told you it would happen, Little Nicky himself attracted a lot of flack when he blogged on the certainty that interventuon by the FUKUS axis to overthrow Libyan tyrant Muammar Gadaffi would leave a power vacuum in the North African state. Since Gadaffi was deposed by a western bombing campaign and then murdered by a fanatical Islamist mob, Libya has fallen into the lawless, dystopian chaose of a failed state. It was bound to happen; when you overthrow a dictator without first ensuring there is a plan to maintain stability, it always happens.

When Little Nicky suggested during the bombing of Libya that western leaders, Cameron, France's President at the time Sarkozy, and the rent-boy-in-chief Obama should have been prepared to leave an army of occupation in place to maintain order until a stable government emerged, he was accused of wanting to return to colonialism. It was a typically half arsed leftie response; what was being suggested was that once the bombing campaign had been embarked on, the west should have done what was necesssary to deal with the chaos that would follow. I always opposed the bombing campain from the poit at which it was first proposed.

but of course the west was hoping that a kind of half arsed colonialism would result from their half arsed war. The idea was that a pro western, pseudo-democratic puppet regime would emerge that would look like a native Libyan government but would be controlled by Washington, London and Paris.

from The Local
French leaders have called on the world to take action in Libya over worries the chaos there is turning the country into a "terrorist hub" that's a short flight or boat ride from Europe.

France on Tuesday issued a clarion call to the rest of the international community to act in Libya, amid growing fears the country is becoming a major "terrorist hub" on Europe's doorstep.

But while the major regional players voiced concern about the chaos in Libya playing into the hands of jihadists, they appeared cool on the possibility of an international intervention in the country.

French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said he wanted to "sound the alarm about the seriousness of the situation in Libya."

"The south is a sort of hub for terrorist groups where they come to re-supply -- including with weapons -- and re-organise. In the north, the political and economic centres of the country are now at risk from falling under jihadist control. And Libya is the gateway both to Europe and the Sahara," he warned in an interview with Le Figaro

Once again Little Nicky, with fingers crossed, takes no pleasure in saying "I told you so."

Libya Intervention - The One That Started It All

European and American warplanes attack Coilonel Gadaffi's forces in Libya, Obama and Cameton claim the intervention in a civil conflict is justified by Gadaffi's human rights violations. Then why have no bombs fallen on Mugabe's rotten regime in Zimbabwe, or on China, Saudi Arabia or other nations where human rights are routinely trampled on?

ISIS completely fabricated enemy by US says Former CIA contractor

posted by Ed Butt

We were not surprised to see this news item in the feeds. When you consider the Flight MH17 False Flag, the Syria poison gas attack that was carried out by US backed terorists and which the Obama administration tried (and failed) to blame on Assad, the US / EU engineered coup in Ukraine that overthrew a democractivally elected government and replaced it with a gang of neo Nazi thugs, the bombing of Libya when averting a humanitarian crisis was the pretext for a war to achieve regime change and which left the nation as a chaotic, lawless, failed state, nothing the US Government does should surprise us any more.

Former CIA contractor Steven Kelley says that the ISIL terrorist group is a completely fabricated enemy created and funded by the United States.

“This is a completely fabricated enemy,” he said in a phone interview with Press TV from Anaheim, California on Thursday.

“The funding is completely from the United States and its allies and for people to think that this enemy is something that needs to be attacked in Syria or Iraq is a farce because obviously this is something that we create it, we control and only now it has become inconvenient for us to attack this group as a legitimate enemy,” Kelley added.

He made the remarks as US President Barack Obama is under pressure to seek congressional approval before expanding Washington’s military air campaign against ISIL targets from Iraq into neighboring Syria.

The Pentagon has already launched at least 100 airstrikes on ISIL positions in northern Iraq since Obama authorized the use of force against the terrorist group earlier this month. [Continue Reading ]

Occasionally we have the great good fortune to stumple upon a fully paid up, card carry member of the Idiots Association. There's one visits my threads occasionally, usually announcing that he 'works in a university' as if that make his opinions more valuable than those of us who live and work in the real world and deal with its harsh realities every day, rather than spending our lives cocooned in the embrace of a cloistered environment.
