Libya, Hypocrisy and Betrayal by the United Nations

The bombing of Libya will begin on or nearly to the day, of the eighth anniversary of the beginning of the destruction of Iraq, 19th March, in Europe. Libya too will be destroyed – its schools, education system, water, infrastructure, hospitals, municipal buildings. There will be numerous “tragic mistakes”, “collateral damage”, mothers, fathers, children, babies, grandparents, blind and deaf schools and on and on. And the wonders of the Roman remains and earlier, largely enduring and revered in all history’s turmoils as Iraq, the nation’s history – and humanity’s, again as Iraq and Afghanistan, will be gone, for ever.

The infrastructure will be destroyed. The embargo will remain in place, thus rebuilding will be impossible. Britain, France and the US., will decide the country needs “stabilising”, “help with reconstruction.” They will move in, secure the oil installations and oil fields, the Libyan people will be an incidental inconvenience and quickly become “the enemy”, “insurgents”, be shot, imprisoned, tortured, abused – and a US friendly puppet “government” will be installed.

The invaders will award their companies rebuilding contracts, the money – likely taken from Libya’s frozen assets without accounting – will vanish and the country will remain largely in ruins.

And the loudest cheerleaders for this, as Iraq, will be running round tv and radio stations in London, Europe and the US, then returning to their safe apartments and their UK/US/Europe paid tenures, in the knowledge that no bombs will be dropping on them. Their children will not be shaking uncontrollably and soiling themselves with terror at the sound of approaching planes.

And this Libyan “Shock and Awe”? Shame on France, shame on Britain and the US and a UN avowed: “… to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war.” Every shattered body, every child maimed or blown to bits, every widow, widower, orphan, will have their name of those countries, and the UN., written in their blood in their place of death.

And the public of these murderous, marauding Western ram raiders, will be told that we were bringing democracy, liberating Libya from a tyrant, from the “new Hitler”, the “Butcher of Bengazi.”

The countries who have ganged together these last days to overthrow a sovereign government have, again, arguably, conspired in Nuremberg’s: ” … supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole”, and yet again, plotted to overthrow a sovereign government, with a fig leaf of “legality” from an arm twisted UN. We have seen it all before.

Ironically, as I write, here in the UK., on the day Prime Minister Cameron is to make an announcement in Parliament on the proposed attack on Libya, it is Red Nose Day, founded in 1988, out of 1985’s Comic Relief – which came from a refugee camp in Sudan, which borders Libya – to raise money for the children in need, in Africa. This red nose day, we plan to bomb them.

In time, it will emerge, who was stirring, bribing, de-stabilizing – and likely few will be surprised at the findings. But by then, Libya will be long broken and its people, fleeing, displaced, distraught.

When it comes to dealing with the usual “liberators”, be careful what you wish for. In six months or so, most Libyans, whatever the failings of the last forty years rule, will be ruing the day.

    Khadafi is the smartest guy in the ME, a leader of uncompromising vision and the last hope for the Arabs. His kinsmen have not listened to his voice of reason and they will suffer the loss of everything they have due to their stupidy and love of wealth. Jerusalem will be the capital of the NWO (or might be Asanti after the the destruction of Jerusalem), either way a temple will be built, has been built, and the nwo-king Satan will sit in it and be worshiped. There is a ancient stone that is in Westminster Abbey, when you see that stone placed in their temple, know that the worship of Satan is to begin in ernest. See the role of the Danites (the ruling class of England since William the Conqueror, the anti-Christ line) in all of this since Richard the “lion heart” and Lawrence of Arabia to Prince Charles the Absurd (but still dangerous) to destroy the Ismaelites from the face of the earth. When it comes to the ME, “bringing” them democracy, is the NWO’s doublespeak for bringing them genocide. Khadafi told BP to %uck-off you see. England is calling the shots, US forces do the dirty work.

    One more Old Kingdom to fall

    Our politicians and military elites cries out
    “Moms and Wives give us your men”
    Then when done and if they return they will be haggard laggard infected for life mentally and physically impaired.
    Then we who care must ask WHY, to those that govern us.
    Standard reply that is a lie!
    “To bring Peace”

    PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH

    The Pentagon said 112 cruise missiles were launched from US and UK ships and subs, hitting 20 targets in Libya.

    The cost to replace the missiles $1 million each that could have bought some school kids lunches. Tea party folks should be happier now that blood has hit the street to save their ways of life.

    Now our Commander Chief Obama after pulling the firing pin –is in Brazil who knows what the hell for.

    It is common knowledge that the pretext for attacking Libya is deceit. If these Governments were truly concerned for the welfare of citizens, they would start with recognising Julian Assange (Wiki Leaks), instead of imprisoning him, totally NAKED! What crime has he committed? Totally depraved politicians. They are playing into the hands of God as predicted centuries ago. Extremely sad for innocent citizens who support their ruler. I guess retaliation is what we will receive, though the evil doers will scutter to their shelters underground.

    I am concerned as you are about the critical times we live. But we must never forget GOD is not mocked.

    My humble way of trying to explain the grand scheme of God is: He wrote a cosmic play and plan. Then creation began. Then at each act of the play some one had to chose each part. So those in powerful financial and military control today chose the part of the Cannibalistic Predator Beast.

    Thus homo sapiens or us was filled with Gods Conscience. That was at the time of Adam and Eve.

    Noah heard from God and built the ark and people were saved—Yet Nimrod was kin to Noah and he was the first great hunter of men. He was the great city builder. And all the satanic things cone today go back to Nimrod the man that challenged God.

    And time marches on with Moses the Great Law Giver; illumination came from God and filled the prophets the greatest one Elijah. Now the central theme of the words spoken and written was that God was coming himself to save his creation.

    Then He came Jesus Christ from Nazareth. He had things that had to be done.
    1. He had to be recognized by man and he was.
    2. He had to fulfill the words about Him coming and he did.
    3. He had to teach and preach about His Kingdom that was at hand.
    4. He had to die on the cross and rise again as His new creation called the Second Adam.
    5. The Second Adams is those of us that have been baptized by His Holy Spirit as told in the Books of Acts and others.
    6. Second Adams should not fear death for Jesus proved that death could not hold Him and He made that same promise to us.
    7. So regardless of what those that have taken the path to defy God like Nimrod did — our great hope is that when and how our mortal earthly body changes in what we call death WE LIVE ON. We are like Him when he rose from the dead and continued to work here on earth. So our Soul is what we are. It never dies when he adopts us to live on forever.
    8. That is the great HOPE.

    So with that HOPE we must go on and do the best we can to be HIS VOICE AND HANDS while living on this earth.

    The book of Matthew was written for the family of God the Jews. To help is understand the MAN Jesus read that book—over and over again.

    He is my best friend and I rely on Him daily to lead me.

      1972年,日本著名歷史學家 井上清 Kiyoshi Inoue 寫了 《釣魚島的歷史解析》 一書,該書再版為書名《釣魚島歷史與主權》。

      在該書中,井上清寫到:

      1971年11月,我初次去冲繩旅行,在那裏收集了許多關于釣魚群島的歷史資料,1972年初,我又利用到西歐旅行的機會,去英國海軍資料館查閱了英國海軍繪制的中國南部、臺灣和琉球方面的海圖,航海日志以及探險記錄。

      眾所周知,釣魚群島自明朝以來就是中國的領土 – 井上清寫到日本及琉球在1867年以前實際上沒有一份釣魚群島的歷史文獻。

      與琉球及日本方面正相反,中國方面有許多關于釣魚群島的文獻資料。

      至少在16世紀中葉,釣魚群島就有了中國名字。如釣魚島、黃毛嶼、赤嶼等等。

      井上清幾乎是在日本有影響力的歷史學家當中唯一一個敢于尊重事實,堅持說釣魚群島屬于中國的 – 這樣絕無僅有的一個例證

    I think we all know that ‘the coalition’ ie US,UK,France etc are not there to make the lives of these Sudanese ,Lebanese ,Iraqi and Afghani civilians any better.
    Brass tacks…….we are there for their fuckin’ oil!! Just as bad as their crooked and corrupt predecessors ,we will take it ,spend it and they wont see a cents worth!
    On top of this we will then (after flattening their countries) install US/UK friendly governments ……….change the natives into insurgents and shoot on sight! We have no compassion……money talks, bullshit walks!

    All who doubt ,just keep getting spoon fed your daily media (horseshit), and bury your fuckin’ heads like an ostrich!

    The reasons seem hidden but they are not —Wake up and study!

    MY TAKE
    By Dwight Baker
    Dbaker007@stx.rr.com

    The CIA, Pentagon and Military leaders are in cahoots. The elected leaders are mere puppets. Fear is their driving force behind their crazed deeds for they are all afraid Case in point for those that do not know Yale University is the home of Skull and Bones the fraternity that is the driving force behind the CIA. S and B is a satanic organization that went to Lawton Oklahoma and dug up Geronimo Bones carried off his skull and it is worshiped behind closed doors at Yale. WHY he was a fierce warrior—The way they want to be.

    And as has been said it is the Oil and Gas that the European Union needs. China has proved they can buy oil but our evil alliance with the Cannibalistic Predator Beast prefers to steal it. Why not we/they have ‘The CIA, Pentagon and Military leaders’ the march in goose steps to the calls out from the top down. And most of us know just who they are.

    And Yet, Libya has been destroyed. It’s people on the streets cheering for Gadhaffi’s Death, soon will mourn for themselves.

    P.S. Yet United Nations have failed again…
