Civil war surges in Libya after legislative elections
Jean Shaoul | 16 July 2014 | WSW


Quote:
The situation in Libya after last month's legislative elections constitutes a political indictment of the 2011 NATO war in Libya. Libya’s main cities have become war zones with the various Islamist-led militias, previously denounced as terrorists, which the Obama administration and the European powers funded in their bid to topple the regime of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 and install a more pro-Western government, battling it out for control of the country’s oil wealth.

The country is in a state of collapse, with the government existing in name only. Oil production, the life blood of the economy, is down by at least 80 percent, and more than one million people have been forced to flee the country. Thousands are incarcerated and tortured in jails run by armed militias, many of which are criminal enterprises involved in narcotics smuggling and drug and people-trafficking.

On Sunday, rival militias from Zintan and Misrata—both of which are on the state payroll, in a bid to secure their support and cooperation—fought for control of the international airport in the capital city of Tripoli, killing at least seven people and wounding at least 36.

The fighting appears to have started when the Misrata militia attacked the Zintan militia which has held the airport since Gaddafi’s ouster, ostensibly to hand it over to government authorities. The government of acting Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni issued a statement denouncing the attack as illegal, however, declaring: “The operation is led by civil leaders belonging to brigades and troops ... moving without orders and legal cover.”

On Monday, the authorities also suspended all flights to and from Libya’s third city, Misrata, to the west of Tripoli as it is dependent on Tripoli airport for its operations, effectively cutting it off from the outside world.

The United Nations mission in Libya, which withdrew dozens of its staff last week because of fears about security, pulled out its remaining staff on Monday as a temporary measure.

The main violence, however, is taking place in the eastern port city of Benghazi, Libya’s second largest city near the main oil exporting terminals. Buildings and infrastructure have been destroyed and whole areas deserted as residents flee kidnappings, extortion, the constant shelling and killing.

Clashes between various Islamist groups and forces loyal to the renegade general Khalifa Hifter, once close to Gaddafi and later the CIA, have killed hundreds of people since the start of Hifter’s Operation Dignity, while assassinations are increasing. On Sunday, five people were killed and nine wounded when Hifter’s forces bombarded Islamist bases in the city in a bid to oust armed groups.

These include Ansar al-Sharia, a former US proxy which led the 2012 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, killing the US ambassador and three staffers; Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM); and al-Mulathameen (masked) Brigade, an Al Qaeda split off loyal to the Algerian Mokhtar Bel Mokhtar.

Algerian reports of jihadist attack threat using commercial aircraft stolen from Libya unlikely to be credible
IHS Jane's Intelligence Review | 11 August 2014


Quote:
EVENT
A Moroccan press report indicated on 13 August that Morocco's air force was on high alert following the theft of several aircraft in Libya that could be used within the region for jihadist attacks in the style of the September 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

There have been various reports in Tunisian and Algerian press in recent weeks regarding this same risk. On 6 August, Algerian news site al-Fajr claimed 11 aircraft had been taken from Tripoli International Airport during recent fighting between militias there. The aircraft type was alleged to be Embraer (Embraer 170/190 passenger jets are commonly used by oil companies for charter flights inside Libya). Subsequently, Mohamed Frikha, the CEO of Tunisian airline company Syphax, claimed in an interview with Tunisia's Shems FM that two Airbus-A320 aircraft belonging to Libyan company Ifriqiya had gone missing from Misratah. However, a spokesman for Libya's transport ministry has said that no aircraft are missing.

The militias controlling the main airports in the west are extremely unlikely to allow flights by jihadists. It is also very unlikely that aircraft could have been taken from Tripoli International Airport without the knowledge of the Zintan militias that control it. Some aircraft belonging to Ifriqiya were evacuated with Zintan permission early in the fighting, but any that remained are highly likely to have been damaged, while Tripoli International Airport's infrastructure is also currently unusable. Misratah and Mitiga airports are now the only two functioning international airports in Western Libya.

However, the Misratan Islamist militias that control them will not want to jeopardise the political influence and revenue this affords them by facilitating an 11 September 2001-style attack that would also invite heavy military retaliation from Algeria or other countries. Therefore, even in the unlikely event jihadists had managed to steal aircraft, recruit trained pilots willing to undertake suicide attacks, and secure enough fuel, they would still need to transport the jets to other paved runways large enough to facilitate take-off (for instance remote airstrips or old airbases), heightening the risk such movements would be spotted by foreign intelligence agency surveillance.

FORECAST
All this means that the threat of an 11 September 2001-style attack is probably not credible. However, the reports of Algerian and Moroccan military alerts and air defence battery deployments do signal an increased risk of shootdown of unidentified aircraft that have come from Libyan airspace.

Libya shared ½ of all the its oil revenue with its 5.5 million population. All medical care was free, if you could not get the care you needed in Libya then you could travel wherever you needed with a family member and all costs and expenses were fully paid. Education was free and if you wanted to go outside to another University that was paid in full with a stipend. When a Libyan couple got married they received a $46,000 gift from the government to start their lives. Their first home, a 2,500 sq foot condominium cost 10% of their salary for 20 years and then it was theirs. Gasoline was 44 cents a gallon, all utilities were free. If you were hungry and had no money they hadhuge stores of food where you could get rice, milk, cheese, flour and money to buy meat. The average salary in Libya was the highest in Africa, higher than China or India at $15,800 a year. If you had a college education and could not find a job you received that money until you found a job.

NATO destroyed Libyan medical system, now 1 million near death due to lack of life-saving medicines
Sputnik | 24 Feb 2016


Quote:
UN humanitarian officials warned that a million people in Libya may soon require emergency assistance due to shortages of life-saving medicines.

An absence of any central authority in post-Gaddafi Libya, and the endless fighting between a large number of militias, is cultivating chaos in the country. Hospitals in Libya are either not functioning or in very poor condition due to anarchy following the 2011 insurrection that toppled Gaddafi.

"Our estimation is that by the end of March, Libya may run out of life saving medications which will impact about one million people," UN humanitarian coordinator for Libya Ali Al-Za'tari told Reuters on Monday. "If there is no medication and medical supplies coming in, that will be a real issue for Libya."

The destruction of the Libyan healthcare network has been aggravated by crises in the region spanning several years. Since 2014, Libya has had two competing governments, one in Tripoli and another in the east, both backed by loose alliances of armed brigades and former rebels.

Most of the hospitals in Benghazi have closed their doors due to the instability, according to Al-Za'tari. Only one or two facilities are still functioning, but they are of low quality and are now quickly running out of resources.

"It is really difficult for a hospital to continue like this in a town that is witnessing constant daily fighting in certain parts," Al-Za'tari said.

Soon there will be no place left in the country for Libyans to receive proper care. The problem has reached a point where 1.3 million people in Libya need humanitarian assistance.

The UN appealed to the international community for $166 million in financial aid for some 2.4 million affected Libyans, of which only $4.4 million was made available, a mere 7.3 percent of what was requested.

"The perception is Libya is rich and can fend for itself. Libya is rich but it can't fend for itself today," said Al-Za'tari, in reference to Libya's status as an oil producer. "It is not an easy story to sell and I admit it. I am living it. Telling people that Libya has a humanitarian situation makes them go back in their seats and say 'no way.'"

Al-Za'tari was due to meet Arab League delegates on a visit to Cairo to explain and highlight the overall deterioration of the health network in Libya. He stressed that unless the international community promptly pays due attention to the humanitarian crisis in Libya, the situation would worsen and could have global consequences, including the spread of infectious diseases.

Quote:
Critics have long questioned why violent intervention was necessary in Libya. Hillary Clinton’s recently published emails confirm that it was less about protecting the people from a dictator than about money, banking, and preventing African economic sovereignty.

The brief visit of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Libya in October 2011 was referred to by the media as a “victory lap.” “We came, we saw, he died!” she crowed in a CBS video interview on hearing of the capture and brutal murder of Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi.

But the victory lap, write Scott Shane and Jo Becker in the New York Times, was premature. Libya was relegated to the back burner by the State Department, “as the country dissolved into chaos, leading to a civil war that would destabilize the region, fueling the refugee crisis in Europe and allowing the Islamic State to establish a Libyan haven that the United States is now desperately trying to contain.”

US-NATO intervention was allegedly undertaken on humanitarian grounds, after reports of mass atrocities; but human rights organizations questioned the claims after finding a lack of evidence. Today, however, verifiable atrocities are occurring. As Dan Kovalik wrote in the Huffington Post, “the human rights situation in Libya is a disaster, as ‘thousands of detainees [including children] languish in prisons without proper judicial review,’ and ‘kidnappings and targeted killings are rampant’.”

Before 2011, Libya had achieved economic independence, with its own water, its own food, its own oil, its own money, and its own state-owned bank. It had arisen under Qaddafi from one of the poorest of countries to the richest in Africa. Education and medical treatment were free; having a home was considered a human right; and Libyans participated in an original system of local democracy. The country boasted the world’s largest irrigation system, the Great Man-made River project, which brought water from the desert to the cities and coastal areas; and Qaddafi was embarking on a program to spread this model throughout Africa.

But that was before US-NATO forces bombed the irrigation system and wreaked havoc on the country. Today the situation is so dire that President Obama has asked his advisors to draw up options including a new military front in Libya, and the Defense Department is reportedly standing ready with “the full spectrum of military operations required.” -- Can you say 'War Cime!'

The Secretary of State’s victory lap was indeed premature, if what we’re talking about is the officially stated goal of humanitarian intervention. But her newly-released emails reveal another agenda behind the Libyan war; and this one, it seems, was achieved.

Mission Accomplished?

Of the 3,000 emails released from Hillary Clinton’s private email server in late December 2015, about a third were from her close confidante Sidney Blumenthal, the attorney who defended her husband in the Monica Lewinsky case. One of these emails, dated April 2, 2011, reads in part:

Qaddafi’s government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver . . . . This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA).

In a “source comment,” the original declassified email adds:

According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya. According to these individuals Sarkozy’s plans are driven by the following issues:

-- A desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production,
-- Increase French influence in North Africa,
-- Improve his internal political situation in France,
-- Provide the French military with an opportunity to reassert its position in the world,
-- Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi’s long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa


Conspicuously absent is any mention of humanitarian concerns. The objectives are money, power and oil.

Other explosive confirmations in the newly-published emails are detailed by investigative journalist Robert Parry. They include admissions of rebel war crimes, of special ops trainers inside Libya from nearly the start of protests, and of Al Qaeda embedded in the US-backed opposition. Key propaganda themes for violent intervention are acknowledged to be mere rumors. Parry suggests they may have originated with Blumenthal himself. They include the bizarre claim that Qaddafi had a “rape policy” involving passing Viagra out to his troops, a charge later raised by UN Ambassador Susan Rice in a UN presentation. Parry asks rhetorically:

So do you think it would it be easier for the Obama administration to rally American support behind this “regime change” by explaining how the French wanted to steal Libya’s wealth and maintain French neocolonial influence over Africa – or would Americans respond better to propaganda themes about Gaddafi passing out Viagra to his troops so they could rape more women while his snipers targeted innocent children? Bingo!

Toppling the Global Financial Scheme

Qaddafi’s threatened attempt to establish an independent African currency was not taken lightly by Western interests. In 2011, Sarkozy reportedly called the Libyan leader a threat to the financial security of the world. How could this tiny country of six million people pose such a threat? First some background.

It is banks, not governments, that create most of the money in Western economies, as the Bank of England recently acknowledged. This has been going on for centuries, through the process called “fractional reserve” lending. Originally, the reserves were in gold. In 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt replaced gold domestically with central bank-created reserves, but gold remained the reserve currency internationally.

In 1944, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank were created in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, to unify this bank-created money system globally. An IMF ruling said that no paper money could have gold backing. A money supply created privately as debt at interest requires a continual supply of debtors; and over the next half century, most developing countries wound up in debt to the IMF. The loans came with strings attached, including “structural adjustment” policies involving austerity measures and privatization of public assets.

After 1944, the US dollar traded interchangeably with gold as global reserve currency. When the US was no longer able to maintain the dollar’s gold backing, in the 1970s it made a deal with OPEC to “back” the dollar with oil, creating the “petro-dollar.” Oil would be sold only in US dollars, which would be deposited in Wall Street and other international banks.

In 2001, dissatisfied with the shrinking value of the dollars that OPEC was getting for its oil, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein broke the pact and sold oil in euros. Regime change swiftly followed, accompanied by widespread destruction of the country.

In Libya, Qaddafi also broke the pact; but he did more than just sell his oil in another currency.

As these developments are detailed by blogger Denise Rhyne:

For decades, Libya and other African countries had been attempting to create a pan-African gold standard. Libya’s al-Qadhafi and other heads of African States had wanted an independent, pan-African, “hard currency.”

Under al-Qadhafi’s leadership, African nations had convened at least twice for monetary unification. The countries discussed the possibility of using the Libyan dinar and the silver dirham as the only possible money to buy African oil.

Until the recent US/NATO invasion, the gold dinar was issued by the Central Bank of Libya (CBL). The Libyan bank was 100% state owned and independent. Foreigners had to go through the CBL to do business with Libya. The Central Bank of Libya issued the dinar, using the country’s 143.8 tons of gold.

Libya’s Qadhafi (African Union 2009 Chair) conceived and financed a plan to unify the sovereign States of Africa with one gold currency (United States of Africa). In 2004, a pan-African Parliament (53 nations) laid plans for the African Economic Community – with a single gold currency by 2023.

African oil-producing nations were planning to abandon the petro-dollar, and demand gold payment for oil/gas.


Showing What Is Possible

Qaddafi had done more than organize an African monetary coup. He had demonstrated that financial independence could be achieved. His greatest infrastructure project, the Great Man-made River, was turning arid regions into a breadbasket for Libya; and the $33 billion project was being funded interest-free without foreign debt, through Libya’s own state-owned bank.

That could explain why this critical piece of infrastructure was destroyed in 2011. NATO not only bombed the pipeline but finished off the project by bombing the factory producing the pipes necessary to repair it. Crippling a civilian irrigation system serving up to 70% of the population hardly looks like humanitarian intervention. Rather, as Canadian Professor Maximilian Forte put it in his heavily researched book Slouching Towards Sirte: NATO’s War on Libya and Africa:

[T]he goal of US military intervention was to disrupt an emerging pattern of independence and a network of collaboration within Africa that would facilitate increased African self-reliance. This is at odds with the geostrategic and political economic ambitions of extra-continental European powers, namely the US.


Mystery Solved

Hilary Clinton’s emails shed light on another enigma remarked on by early commentators. Why, within weeks of initiating fighting, did the rebels set up their own central bank? Robert Wenzel wrote in The Economic Policy Journal in 2011:

This suggests we have a bit more than a rag tag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences. I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising.

It was all highly suspicious, but as Alex Newman concluded in a November 2011 article:

Whether salvaging central banking and the corrupt global monetary system were truly among the reasons for Gadhafi’s overthrow . . . may never be known for certain – at least not publicly.

There the matter would have remained – suspicious but unverified like so many stories of fraud and corruption – but for the publication of Hillary Clinton’s emails after an FBI probe. They add substantial weight to Newman’s suspicions: violent intervention was not chiefly about the security of the people. It was about the security of global banking, money and oil.

The Islamic State Is Pretext To Again Mug Libya
March 18, 2016 | Moon of Alabama


Quote:


There are currently two governments in Libya. A "moderately Islamist" one in the west in Tripoli and one in the east in Tobruk. The eastern one is internationally recognized and "secular" but also supported by some Salafist groups. Both governments have their own parliament and various supporting militia. In the middle of the long east-west coastline the Islamic State led by some cadres from Iraq and Syria has taken a foothold in Sirte. It is recruiting followers from north Africa and moving to capture nearby oilfields to finance its further expansion.

The "west" is alarmed about this development and wants to intervene with military force. Special forces from several countries are already on the ground. But both governments and their parliaments do not want such foreign intervention.

The UN or someone came up with the glorious idea of creating a third government which is supposed to supersede the two existing ones. The task of this third government will be to "invite" foreign forces and to rubber-stamp whatever they will do. That third government is now constituted in Tunisia and has zero power on the ground in Libya:

[T]here is no guarantee that the other factions will back down. So what is a war between two rival governments backed by militias risks becoming a war among three rival governments, none of which recognize the others ..

Naturally the Libyans hate that idea of a foreign imposed government. They will likely fight any third force that tries to usurp their sovereignty. Confronted with a foreign imposed government and foreign military forces more Libyans will join the Islamic State to fight the intruders. The shortsightedness of the UN and the "western" governments on this issue is breathtaking.

But there is still a lot of money to be made in Libya and especially the French and British governments want to keep robbing the country blind. This requires some feet on the ground. The "brain" and a likely main profiteer behind all this seems to be one well known figure.

A revealing piece in the Times of Malta describes some of the astonishing political-business connections behind the scenes:

[A] major military operation by a collection of foreign powers is in the works to tackle Isis and install a UN-backed government but the shabby way it has been put together carries the risk it will blow back in everyone’s faces.

First, there is the strange situation that [Britain’s Ambassador to Libya, Peter] Millett takes his orders from Britain’s Libya envoy, Jonathan Powell, a contractor to the FCO. Yes, the same Powell who, along with then prime minister Tony Blair, brokered the deal with Muammar Gaddafi to end his dictatorship’s isolation a decade ago - and lead to fat Blair consultancies with that same tyrant after the prime minister left office.

Among other beneficiaries of this new opening up of Gaddafi’s dictatorship was a massive property development contract handed out to a company chaired by none other than Powell’s brother, Lord Charles Powell, which also involved an array of colourful London-based, well-known Arab millionaires. Which makes Powell more of a close relative of an interested party.

Libya is awash with weapons and munitions of all kinds and these are bought and sold in open markets. With the right amount of money one can easily buy powerful anti-tank weapons or anti-air guns readily installed on the ubiquitous Toyota technicals. But Britain also wants to sell, not buy weapons:

Millett revealed that he wants to sell Libya yet more [weapons] - but only to the ‘right’ militias, that is, those supporting the new UN-backed government of national accord (GNA).

The GNA, designed to replace Libya’s two warring governments, in Tripoli and Tobruk, is the cornerstone of Western policy in Libya, designed to unite the country to turn its united guns on Isis. Hence the weapons.

Millett insists the weapons will only go to the ‘right’ militias, an echo of a Western statement about supporting the ‘right kind’ of terrorists in Syria in the war against Isis.


Here now comes the real business part with the most valuable piece being the Libyan Investment Authority with some $65 billion in assets. This fond is owned by the Libyan people but whoever controls it will be able to siphon off tons of money:

Much of the fallout for this clumsy step to create a third government for Libya will be felt in Malta, where commercial battles rage between the two existing Libyan governments over control of a host of enterprises headquartered here - and which are soon to have unity government leaders also pushing for control.

The Valletta court battle for the public telecommunications company LPTIC highlighted the complicated split and a new tussle is underway for control of the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA), the Tobruk-appointed office of which is situated in Malta.

For now, the LIA battle is in London but in a bizarre twist the case was last week controversially stopped in mid flow on advice from Britain’s Foreign Office.

The judge making the order, which keeps both existing governments from getting their hands on this $65 billion asset, is none other than William Blair, brother of - you guessed it, Tony.

Never mind that Tony worked with the LIA in the latter Gaddafi years.

Conflict of interest?


Well, you decide. But to me this looks like another coup in the making this time by introducing a third government that will be completely controlled by foreigners. All this not to "fight the Islamic State" but for Tony Blair and others to control and rob whatever assets the Libyans have left. (How, by the way, is the Clinton Foundation involved in this?)

I can not think of any positive outcome this hapless robbery attempt under the disguise of fighting the Islamic State will have for Libya and its people. Or for the people of those countries who's "elites" now again move to wage war on Libya.

Quote:
With the recent release of Hillary Clinton's emails, the public now knows exactly how the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) went from a collective defense organization to the new Barbary Coast Pirates of imperialism.

During the 2011 Libyan uprising, the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1973 which called for a ceasefire and authorized military action to protect civilian lives. A coalition formed, centered around NATO with the March 17, 2011 passing of the Resolution. Its purpose -- a so-called "no-fly zone" over Libya.

The irony that the U.S.-dominated NATO military organization would be concerned with "protecting" Arab civilians is all too obvious since the United States is the nation most responsible for killing Arab civilians.

The attack on Libya, like the attack on Iraq, has to do with power and control of resources, not only oil, but gold. Libya has the highest standard of living in Africa. "According to the IMF, Libya's Central Bank is 100% state owned. The IMF estimates that the bank has nearly 144 tons of gold in its vaults,".

NATO went there like modern Barbary Coast Pirates -- to loot Libya's gold. The Russian media, in addition to Perkins, reported that the Pan-Africanist Qaddafi, the former President of the African Union, had been advocating that Africa use the gold so plentiful in Libya and South Africa to create an African currency based on a gold dinar.

"It is significant that in the months running up to the UN resolution that allowed the U.S. and its allies to send troops into Libya, Muammar al-Qaddafi was openly advocating the creation of a new currency that would rival the dollar and the euro. In fact, he called upon African and Muslim nations to join an alliance that would make this new currency, the gold dinar, their primary form of money and foreign exchange. They would sell oil and other resources to the US and the rest of the world only for gold dinars,"

Revelation in Email to Hillary Clinton

A U.S. Department of State document emailed to Hillary dated April 2, 2011, key Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal confirmed the attack on Libya had nothing to do with Qaddafi being a threat to the United States and NATO and everything to do with looting his gold.

"Qaddafi's government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver. During late March, 2011, these stocks were moved to Sabha (south west in the direction of the Libyan border with Niger and Chad); taken from the vaults of the Libyan Central Bank in Tripoli," Blumenthal reported to Clinton.

Blumenthal pointed out the purpose of Qaddafi's precious metal: "This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA)."

Blumenthal spells out the reason for NATO's attack and France's imperial plunder, "French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicholas Sarkozy's decision to commit France to the attack on Libya."

There were five reasons for France's illegal war with NATO against Libya. Sarkozy sought, according to Blumenthal, "a. A desire to gain a greater share of Libyan oil production, b. Increase French influence in North Africa, c. Improve his internal situation in France, d. Provide the French military with an opportunity to assert its position in the world, e. Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi's long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa."

Under the neo-colonialism favored after World War II during the period of the Cold War, we preferred to bribe various African leaders to help us loot their nation's resources. The U.S., of course, killed any Pan-African aspirations as well as potential leaders like Patrice Lumumba.

This highjacking of Arab and African resources and slaughtering of Arab civilians is a long-standing plan put forth by neo-conservatives in the United States. The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) has had a "hit list" of Arab nations and little regard for Arab casualties.

What we witnessed in Libya was old-fashioned 19th century imperialism -- the deliberate plundering of a sovereign nation-state's resources by more powerful Western conquistadors.

Hillary Clinton's Terrorist Mercenaries Continue to Destroy Libya
JoanneM 01/29/2017 | Libyan War The Truth




The great deception of Clinton and Obama continues to destroy Libya.

Quote:


First, let me say that the New World Order, Khazarian mafia continues to keep it's hold on Libya thru the use of illegal force and mercenaries. Libya is in a complete state of failure. The people of Libya suffer greatly under the criminal terrorists put in their country by Hillary Clinton and Obama via the use of NATO's war machine committing tremendous war crimes and heinous atrocities against humanity. The criminal terrorists and John McCain, Obama and Hillary Clinton have stolen all the wealth of Libya. They have taken every bank account, they have stolen oil, gold, water, food, medicine etc. They steal the oil needed to run power plants and sell it on the open market without any international oversight (illegal bank transfers etc.) blinking an eye. The Libyan people suffer with no jobs, no money, no food and have taken to selling their organs on the black market to try and feed their families. They cannot walk on the streets, they are forced inside to avoid the terrorist gangs that roam the streets with ak-47 rifles ready to rob them or rape the women or imprison them for no reason.

Meanwhile, the leading terrorists, most of them on the most wanted lists for international terrorism, roam the country freely and have become billionaires with the stolen money from Libya and the Libyan people. The biggest criminal is Abdulhakem Belhaj, a known terrorist who was imprisoned in Libya before 2011 for his criminal acts. He is now a billionaire, he makes no bones about the money he has stolen and his acts of terror against the Libyan people, he is quite proud. One of his biggest supporters in US Senator John McCain. It is a well know fact that McCain is a personal friend and supporter of Belhaj. We have supplied photos of McCain and Belhaj together in Tripoli, where Belhaj is awarding McCain an award for his help in putting the criminals in charge in Libya.

The main terrorist militias in Libya are in the city of Misurata. These are the original Libyan "rats" (the 4% of Libyans that are radicals) who joined Hillary Clinton in her illegal war against Libya. These Libyans are radicals who support the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), Ansar Al Sharia and others. They have remained with a modicum of power in Libya because of their support by the US and Hillary Clinton, sending them arms, money and mercenaries from other countries. These criminals have been openly supported by the US Embassy in Libya since 2011.

There is NO legitimate government in Libya with the exception of the legally elected Government in Tobruk, but there are difficulties with them too because they are infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood. There are many good men in that government trying to help cleanse their country but one must know who they are and how to discern the difference between them. The UN so called Unity Government or the Government of National Accord (GNA) is a UN puppet government that was never welcomed into Libya, the Libyan people had no say in this appointed government and it is made up of many terrorists and radicals. They came into Libya by dark of night by boat and hold themselves up in the Mitiga Airport that is controlled by Belhaj. The other so called government "The National Salvation Government" holds itself in the Rixos Hotel and is made up of radicals who LOST the legal election but refused to give up their positions and attacked those that were legally elected forcing them to move their representative government to Tobruk.

Having said that, here is what is happening in Libya and why the tribes of Sirte put out this current statement. The UN unity government has taken the Misurata terrorist militias as their personal army. The UN government acts like they are the legitimate government in Libya, they report that they are fighting ISIS with their loyalist army, On top of that they have called bombing raids into Libya from Africom (US military control of Africa). They have NO authority in Libya and they are the puppet government of the Khazarians who blew Libya up in the first place. Very convenient for them, the Khazarians, having put their puppets in Libya who can call in air strikes that have been approved by their own puppet government.
They are taking credit for cleansing Libya which is a complete lie and just the opposite. The Misurata militias are the same as ISIS, they are terrorists, they have killed, imprisoned, raped and destroyed hundreds of thousands of Libyans.
