A NATO terrorist attack has hit a water pipes factory in al-Brega, murdering six guards, this being the factory which makes pipes for the great man-made irrigation system across the desert which brings water to seventy per cent of Libyan homes, according to sources in Libya.

The Central Intelligence Agency of the United States recruited over 1,500 men from Mazar-e-Sharif for fighting against the Qaddafi forces in Libya.

Strongman is far from Finished.“Tripoli is under our control. Everyone should rest assured. All is well in Tripoli,” Seif told journalists at the compound, smiling broadly and flashing the V-for-victory sign.Take your pick from the lies and what appears to be a concerted media campaign to mislead. Propaganda. Perception Management. Whatever. Here is some interesting news reports today, the media is backpedalling and trying to make excuses for the lies of yesterday.Gadaffi’s son, whom the rebels “claimed” was captured, looks quite free in the video. Saif al-Islam- “My father is safe and in Tripoli… They (rebels) said they control Libya, they can’t. Tripoli is under our control,” he told reporters. There is an audio clip from a spokesperson from the International Criminal Court indicating there had been NO official confirmation of the arrest of Gadaffi’s son.UPDATE and apologies- the audio has been removed from the BBC page. (Pennyforyourthoughts2)
A YouTube video, referenced by Al-Jazeera, reportedly show Libya opposition forces storming the home of Gadhafi’s daughter, which is referred to as a ‘compound’ by the western media.Why the need for the propaganda? It is a house, not a military compound.

Min. Farrakhan’s Full Press Conference on US, NATO attack on Libya (June 15, 2011)
Afghan war winnable without Pakistan help on border: US
President Obama insisted that the assault force hunting down Osama bin Laden last week be large enough to fight its way out of Pakistan if confronted by hostile local police officers and troops, senior administration and military officials said Monday.
How far they go to Pressurize Pakistan and make series of accusations against Pakistan’s intelligence agency, ISI. The United States could break with Pakistan and try to handle things on its own in Afghanistan, but the supply line fueling Afghan fighting runs through Pakistan.Afghanistan is war at the end of the Earth for the United States, and to fight it, Washington must have Pakistani supply routes.
Its not Washington to decided the Fate of Afghan but Region Powers that is Pakistan,China,Russia,Iran and Turkey.
Nothing in the killed of bin Laden changes the geopolitical realities.
The United States is now looking for an exit from Afghanistan. Its goal, the creation of a democratic, pro-American Afghanistan, But US-led NATO forces have been facing defeatism in Afghanistan where they have badly failed to cope with the stiff resistance of the Taliban insurgents. In this context, in the recent days, an international conference was held in Kabul in order to hand over security of Afghanistan to the Afghan military and police. As a matter of fact, America and its allies have decided to exit Afghanistan in accordance with the announced schedule, though apparently, they show reluctance in this matter.D.C could accept that it will not win in Afghanistan and will not be able simply to eliminate terrorism.
Europe and America.The two countries are now agreed on a common position to oppose any move by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to conduct a ground operation in Libya. Russia and China no longer trusts the United States or its NATO allies to be transparent about their intentions with regard to Libya and the Middle East.
IMF bombshell: Age of America nears end Commentary: China’s economy will surpass the U.S. in 2016.According to the latest IMF official forecasts, China’s economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016 — just five years from now.
Most ominous in all of these events regarding Libya was the end time prophecy written about it by the great French seer Michel de Nostredame (1503-1566) (Nostradamus) who in Century 1 Quatrain 9 wrote:
From the Orient will come the African heart/to trouble Hadrie and the heirs of Romulus./Accompanied by the Libyan fleet/the temples of Malta and nearby islands shall be deserted.
According to French author and Nostradamus scholar Jean-Charles de Fontbrune, in his 1983 book Nostradamus: Countdown To Apocalypse (page 287) the “King of Kings” Libyan leader Gaddafi is the man who will unite the Arab World against the West according to this prophecy and begin an apocalyptic Global War that will bring our whole World to the brink of collapse.
Most interesting to note about Fontbrune’s referring to Gaddafi as the “King of Kings” was that he did it in 1983, a full 25 year before August 29, 2008 when at a meeting of more than 200 African kings and traditional rulers he was, indeed, given that exact title.
Chief of the Russian General Staff Nikolai Makarov had previously warned that foreign military intervention in Libya could trigger an all-out war with the West, his warnings have fallen on deaf ears as British Defense Secretary Liam Fox said the direct targeting of Gaddafi was “possible” and British submarines fired two missiles at the Libyan leaders compound in downtown Tripoli bringing number of civilians killed by the West to 48 with over 150 wounded.
Qaddafi cannot be accepted by Western countries and has become the target of military attacks this time. Why?
From Qaddafi’s personal perspective
, shifts in foreign policy are among the most important reasons that caused him to be targeted. In the early stages of the Qaddafi regime, he used violent methods to fight against Western countries and made many enemies. Although he tried to get close to them, it seems like they do not buy it. Even worse, Qaddafi had already been labeled as a textbook example of repression against civilians, so he was rebuffed with accusations and assault.
On a strategic level, Qaddafi’s choice of words in his political rhetoric has also displeased Western countries, such as when he said he opposes the “New Crusade.” Although Qaddafi was not necessarily aiming those words at Western countries, analysts believe that these political words actually have great power to encourage political mobilization and might even foster anti-Western sentiment.
Apart from above reasons, the thing that Western countries can least accept about Qaddafi is the political road on which he has been stepping. For years, Qaddafi has been advocating unifying country and regions, building powerful army and political organizations, oil nationalization, mobilizing middle and lower class public, carrying on land reforms and fighting against Western intervention. Although these goals are hard to realize, they are clearly in the direction of a revival of the Arab world.
The middle of the last century was the greatest period for the Arab world both in terms of international reputation and global influence. But the good times did not last long. The international position of the Arab world and the national security of Arab nations have been challenged often since the middle 1970s.
In recent years, the United States launched two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and Israel also launched large-scale military attacks over Lebanon and Palestine. However, the Arab world could do nothing about that.
For Western countries, the status quo or even a new Arab world changed due to Western will is the best thing. But once a united Arab world is formed, the Western interests in this piece of land, with its large population and rich resources, will be affected badly.
The reason Libya is being “punished” by the Western coalition is mainly because the country has a big affect on Western interests. However, with the development of war and the overall global situation, the political goals of the intervention will be vaguer and vaguer
Brian has provided some useful links:
1. Reason for Libyan war? Gaddafi wanted to nationalise oil.
“On February 16, 2009, Gaddafi … called on Libyans to back his proposal to dismantle the government and to distribute the oil wealth directly to the 5 million inhabitants of the country.
“However, his plan to deliver oil revenues directly to the Libyan people met opposition by senior officials who could lose their jobs due to a parallel plan by Gaddafi to rid the state of corruption.”
2. Toward African freedom in Libya and beyond.
“No one has shouted any louder than Gaddafi that Africa must be for the Africans…
“Why hasn’t the Western world rolled into Israel or the West Bank and saved the Palestinian people who suffer true slaughter and discrimination at the hands of Israel?”
3. Libyan Rebel Leader Spent Much of Past 20 Years in Langley Virginia
Khalifa Hifter, the new leader of Libya’s opposition military, spent the past two decades in suburban Virginia.
4. American Media Silent on CIA Ties to Libya Rebel Commander
Hifter is CIA.
5. LIBYA explained.
Mar 26, 1996 – “Reuters news reports … state that unrest in … Eastern Libya is caused by armed rebels… This is an operation to overthrow Gaddafi led by Col. Khalifa Hifter, of a contra-style group based in the United States called the LibyanNational Army.”

Dear Mr. Medvedev and Vladimir Putin,
Today, there is blatant external aggression of USA and NATO against a sovereign country – Libya. And if anyone can doubt this, then we say this obvious fact is well known, because all this is happening before our eyes, and the actions of U.S. and NATO threaten the lives of not only the citizens of Libya, but to us who are on its territory.
We are outraged by the barbaric bombing of Libya, which is currently carried out by a coalition of U.S. and NATO.
The bombing of Tripoli and other cities in Libya is aimed not only at the objects of air defense and Libya’s Air Force and not only against the Libyan army, but also the object of military and civilian infrastructure. Today, 24 March 2011, NATO aircraft and the U.S. all night and all morning bombed a suburb of Tripoli – Tajhura (where, in particular, is Libya’s Nuclear Research Center). Air Defense and Air Force facilities in Tajhura were destroyed back in the first 2 days of strikes and more active military facilities in the city remained, but today the object of bombing are barracks of the Libyan army, around which are densely populated residential areas, and next to it – the largest in Libya’s Heart Centers. Civilians and the doctors could not assume that common residential quarters will be about to become destroyed, so none of the residents or hospital patients was evacuated.
Bombs and rockets struck residential houses and fell near the hospital. The glass of the Cardiac Center building was broken, and in the building of the maternity ward for pregnant women with heart disease a wall collapsed and part of the roof. This resulted in ten miscarriages whereby babies died, the women are in intensive care, doctors are fighting for their lives. Our colleagues and we are working seven days a week, to save people. This is a direct consequence of falling bombs and missiles in residential buildings resulting in dozens of deaths and injuries, which are operated and reviewed now by our doctors. Such a large number of wounded and killed, as during today, did not result during the total of all the riots in Libya. And this is called “protecting the civilian population”?
With full responsibility as witnesses and participants of what is happening, we state that the United States and its allies are thus carrying out genocide against the Libyan people – as was the case in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Crimes against humanity, carried out by coalition forces akin to those crimes committed by the fathers and grandfathers of today’s Western leaders and their henchmen in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan and in Dresden in Germany, where civilians were also being destroyed in order to deter, to break the will of the people to resist (Germany remembers it, and therefore refused to participate in this new slaughterhouse). Today they want in such ways to make the Libyan people surrender their leader and the legitimate government and meekly lay down their national oil wealth for the countries of the coalition.
We understand that applying to the “international community” to save the people of Libya and we were living in Libya, is useless. Our only hope – is Russia that has the right of veto in the UN, and specifically its leaders – the President and the Prime Minister.
We still hope for you, as hoped in the past, when we took the decision to stay in Libya, and to help its people, medical duty playing its role in the first place. After an abortive coup attempt in late February, the situation calmed down in Libya and the government had successfully restored order. To everyone in Libya, it was clear that without American intervention the country would soon return to normal life. Convinced that Russia, which has veto power, would not allow the aggression of the United States and its allies, we decided to stay in Libya, but were mistaken: Russia, unfortunately, believed the false assurances of Americans and did not oppose the criminal decision of France and the U.S.
We are Ukrainians, Russians and Belarusians, the people of various professions (mainly doctors), working in Libya for more than a year (from 2 to 20 years). During this time, we became well acquainted with the life of the Libyan people and state with few citizens of other nations living in this social comfort, as the Libyans. They are entitled to free treatment, and their hospitals provide the best in the world of medical equipment. Education in Libya is free, capable young people have the opportunity to study abroad at government expense. When marrying, young couples receive 60,000 Libyan dinars (about 50,000 U.S. dollars) of financial assistance. Non-interest state loans, and as practice shows, undated. Due to government subsidies the price of cars is much lower than in Europe, and they are affordable for every family. Gasoline and bread cost a penny, no taxes for those who are engaged in agriculture. The Libyan people are quiet and peaceful, are not inclined to drink, and are very religious. Today, the people are suffering. In February, the peaceful life of the people was violated by gangs of criminals and insane drugged youth – whom the Western media for some reason called “peaceful demonstrators”. They used weapons and attacked police stations, government agencies, military units – resulting in bloodshed. Those who direct them, pursue a clear objective – to create chaos and establish control over Libya’s oil. They misinformed the international community, and said that the Libyans are struggling against the regime. Tell us, who would not like such a regime? If such a regime were in Ukraine or Russia, we would not have been here and worked and enjoyed the social comfort at home in our own countries and in every possible way such a regime would be maintained.
If the U.S. and the EU today have nothing to do, let them turn their attention to the plight of Japan, the Israeli bombing of Palestine, the audacity and impunity of Somali pirates, or the plight of Arab immigrants in France, and leave the Libyans themselves to sort out their internal problems. We see that today in Libya they want to do another Iraq. Carrying out the genocide of an entire people and those who are found with him. We perform MEDICAL DEBT and cannot leave Libyans alone in trouble, leaving them to be destroyed by the forces of the coalition, in addition, we understand that when all the foreigners leave and no one will tell the truth (the small staff of diplomatic missions have long been silenced), the Americans will arrange here a bloodbath. Our only chance of survival – is a solid civil position of Russia in the UN Security Council.
We hope that you, Mr. President, and you, Mr. Prime Minister, as citizens of Russia and as decent people will not allow American and European fascists of the 21st century to destroy the freedom-loving people of Libya and of those who today turned out to be with them.
We therefore urgently request that Russia uses its right of veto, the right earned by millions of lives of the Soviet people during World War II to stop the aggression against a sovereign state, to seek immediate cessation of U.S. and NATO bombing campaign and to demand the introduction of African Union troops in the conflict zone Libya.
Note: The African Union Peace & Security Council delegates that had been accepted by both the Libyan government and the rebel leaders to mediate a peaceful solution between the various parties, were refused entry into Libya by the UN Security Council. This act should have been reprimanded by Russia and China, who should study the AU resolutions, mandate and support its wise decisions]
