The objective of the war in Libya is not just oil, whose reserves (estimated at
60 billion barrels) are the most important in Africa and whose extraction costs are among the lowest in the world. Not so little also, natural gas, whose reserves are estimated at about 1.5 trillion cubic metres. In the crosshairs of “volunteers” of operation “unified protector” are also the sovereign funds, the wealth, the Libyan capital that the state invested abroad.
Sovereign funds managed by the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) are estimated at 70 billion U.S. dollars, soaring to more than 150 when including foreign investment of the Central Bank and other bodies. And they could be even more important. Although lower than that of Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, Libyan sovereign funds are characterized by their rapid growth.
There are a host of reasons the U.S. ruling elites and their European cousins
and business partners are bombing Libya. Obama, “The Mad Bomber,” and the sock puppets in the corporate mind control apparatus tell us this war is a humanitarian mission, an Orwellian oxymoron if ever there was one.
How can killing and maiming people serve to benefit humanity? We know Libya has massive oil and natural gas reserves and any time you see the elites’ GOD – “Gold, gas, Oil and Drugs“ – you know the Luciferi are licking their chops to steal and expropriate it all.
In addition he has been a staunch advocate for pan-African solidarity and independence from the European neo-colonial powers. Libya is one of the few countries not stuck in the spider web of the international money lenders and vampires of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank and Bank of International Settlements. That alone is enough for these psychopaths to put out a hit on him.
When the LIA was founded in 2006, it had 40 billion dollars. In just five years, it had invested in more than one hundred companies: North African, Asian, European, American and South American, holding companies, banks, real estate, industry, oil companies and others.
In Italy, the main Libyan investments were made in UniCredit Banca (LIA and that the Libyan Central Bank owns 7.5%) in the Finmeccanica (2%) and ENI (1%): These investments and others (including 7 5% at Juventus Football Club) have a less economic significance (amounting to about 4 billion U.S. dollars) than political.
Libya, after Washington had removed it from their list of “rogue” countries, tried to reestablish a place in the international arena by relying on “diplomacy of sovereign funds.” When the United States and the European Union abolished the embargo of 2004, and the big oil companies returned to the country, Tripoli could have a trade surplus of around 30 billion dollars per year largely due to foreign investments.
In in these fractures the dominant ruling circles supported ordinary Americans and Europeans who, before attacking Libya militarily to take possession of its energy wealth, appropriated the Libyan sovereign funds. This operation was favored by the representative of the Libyan Investment Authority, Mohamed Layas.
As shown in a diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks, on January 20th, Layas informed the U.S. Ambassador in Tripoli that the LIA had deposited 32 billion dollars in U.S. banks. Five weeks later, on February 28th, the U.S. Treasury “froze” them.
According to official statements, this is “the largest sum of money ever blocked in the United States, which Washington holds “in trust for the future of Libya.” It will serve, in fact, as an injection of capital into the U.S. economy, more and more in debt. A few days later, the European Union “froze” around 45 billion euros of Libyan funds [NR].
The robbery of Libyan funds will have a particularly strong impact in Africa. On this continent, the Libyan Arab African Investment Company made investments in over 25 countries, including 22 in sub-Saharan Africa, planning to increase them over the next five years, particularly in mining, manufacturing, tourism and telecommunications.
Qaddafi organized Africa and contributed $300 million of the $400 million it cost to buy a communications satellite rather than pay the $500 million a year to Europe for the use of one of its satellites that had made phone calls to, from and within Africa the most expensive in the world.
The Libyan investments were instrumental in the realization of the first Rascom telecommunications satellite (Regional African Satellite
Communications Organization), which was placed into orbit in August 2010, allowing African countries to begin to become independent of the American and the European satellite networks, thus realizing an annual savings of hundreds of millions of dollars.
.Even more important were the Libyan investments in the realization of three financial institutions launched by the African Union, the African Investment Bank, whose headquarters are in Tripoli, the African Monetary Fund, based in Yaoundé (Cameroon), the African Central Bank, located in Abuja (Nigeria).
The development of these organisms would allow African countries to escape the control of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, both instruments of neo-colonial domination, and should mark the end of the CFA franc, the currency that 14 ex-colonies are required to use . The freezing of Libyan soverign funds deal a very hard blow to the entire project. The weapons used by the “volunteers” are not only those of the operation “unified protector.”
In addition Libya not being a part of the global central banking system run by the Bank of International Settlements out of Basel, Switzerland, Qaddafi irritated the global financial elites by lending money and supporting projects throughout Africa that were taking profits from the IMF, World Bank and the BIS loan sharks. Qaddafi was costing them billions in interest and the ability to swoop in and steal the country’s assets once the countries got in over their heads in IMF and World Bank debt.In addition to that, Libya was investing its oil and gas wealth in other countries around the world. This accumulated capital and surplus is called sovereign wealth, and Libya had a lot.
Stealing this money will have a devastating impact on African development and economic independence. Dinucci continues: “The assault on the Libyan sovereign wealth funds will have a particularly strong impact in Africa. There, the Libyan Arab African Investment Co. had invested in over 25 countries, 22 of them in sub-Saharan Africa, and was planning to increase the investments over the next five years, especially in mining, manufacturing, tourism and telecommunications. The Libyan investments have been crucial in the implementation of the first telecommunications satellite Rascom (Regional African Satellite Communications Organization), which entered into orbit in August 2010, allowing African countries to begin to become independent from the U.S. and European satellite networks, with an annual savings of hundreds of millions of dollars.
Operating independently of these shysters and crooks who only deal with the private central banks that control their nations’ interest rates, money supply and monetary policy is a no no. By Qaddafi lending money to African nations, threatening to nationalize Libya’s oil and gas and making huge sums of money on his international investments, he was setting a precedent the BIS vampires could not allow.So the U.S. CIA and British MI6 funded provocateurs to create an internal crisis to give the banksters and oil conglomerates a pretext to send in their enforcement arm: NATO and the combined militaries of the U.S., England and France to instigate regime change and the theft of Libya’s wealth under the guise of a humanitarian mission. Don’t believe the hype. This is a straight up bogart to steal Libya’s wealth and resources.

A stunning report from the G8 Summit states that President Medvedev has been told that the American regime leader Barack Obama intends to unleash a “summer war” on Saudi Arabia to capture their oil fields and has ordered thousands more US Troops to the region to launch it. The Washington Post that suggested Riyadh was ready to go it alone because the United States had become an “unreliable partner.”
Saudi Arabia to split from Washington on some issues while questioning its longstanding reliance on the United States to protect its interests.
According to this report, Obama this past week ordered
his Defense Department to “pre-position” over 7,170 combat-hardened US Soldiers in southern Iraq to prepare for the invasion of Saudi Arabia in a blatant disregard of the American pledge to withdrawal all of their by January 2012.
So enraged were the Iraqi people when hearing of Obama’s betrayal that tens-of-thousands of them began a mass protest demanding the Americans leave, but was met with US commander Major General Jeffrey Buchanan slamming the protest march by calling this peaceful
protest “an affront to Iraq’s democracy.”
Even worse for the US, this report continues, was the powerful Iraqi cleric and militia leader Moqtada al-Sadr threatening to unleash his forces upon the Americans unless they begin leaving his country as soon as practical, but which with Obama’s planned new war against Saudi Arabia is now not going to happen.
Unnerving Obama, this report says, is the new Arab Alliance the Saudi’s are creating to make war against Iran, and which includes the largest Muslim nation in the world Indonesia, and America’s newest enemy Pakistan.
The new Arab Alliance, all Sunni Muslim ruled nations, being created by Saudi Arabia through their Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) launched their first attack against their Persian Shiite foes in Bahrain where Saudi and Pakistani troops unleashed one of the most brutal crackdowns ever seen in a region used to such actions, even to include the mass destruction of holy sites.
Saudi Arabia’s anger at Obama stems from the Americans refusal to support the deposed Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak who now languishes in prison with his two sons under threat of death by firing squad for his ordering the killing of unarmed protesters.
As we have reported on many times,the Americas have vowed to protect Iran ‘at all costs’ and since 2001 have fought two wars to defeat the Persian Shiite’s nations most feared opponents, the Bathist led Iraq and Taliban led Afghanistan.
Obama’s main strategy, this report continues, is to secure all of the Middle East’s vast oil reserves of which Saudi Arabia has the most of, but which are now threatened should the Saudi’s succeed in launching an attack on Iran with their GCC allies which would turn the whole Gulf region into an infernal of ‘unimaginable proportions’ and plunge the entire world into an economic depression the likes of which have never been seen.
Fueling Obama’s fears even more, this report further says, are that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons would be used in this conflict, and which the Americans have now lost their ability to monitor after being ordered out of the country as tensions between these two former allies escalate by the day.
Worse still for the Americans was the dashing of their hopes this past week for Brazil’s oil reserves (the largest oil find in three decades) after new estimates lowered this ‘black gold’ from over 15 billion barrels to as little few as 4.5 billion. Though the US has tried to secure a part of Brazil’s vast oil reserves through a $2 billion loan-guarantee, the Brazilians, to date, have not taken advantage it.
Important to note about Brazil, and as we had reported on in our report “World Begins Effort To Collapse US Dollar As Brazil Begins Nuclear Production And Ejects UN Inspectors”, is that because of its nuclear weapons the Americans can’t take their oil reserves by force as they have through their wars against Muslim nations.
To the American peoples ability to stop Obama’s new war against Saudi Arabia there appears to be no hope especially after his refusal yesterday to allow a truce in the illegal Libyan war he started over two months ago by lying to his own citizens saying it would only last “days, not weeks.”
Most ominous, for the American people at least, in this report further warning that the parallels between the United States today, and Nazi Germany of last century are becoming too similar to ignore, especially when viewed in the light that both of these nations wars were started because they lacked the oil resources to sustain their global economic and military might.
Evidence that America is fast falling into fascist tyranny could, literally, fill hundreds of volumes, and made even worse this after Obama followed Bush in allowing the unlimited powers of surveillance of US citizens and ordered his government lawyers to review all prayers said at the burial of US war veterans to make sure the name of Jesus was removed.
Perhaps even worse was the Obama regime this past week unveiling their plan to spend over $500 million on a programme designed to make 5-year-old children ‘sit still’ in kindergarten in blind obedience to their ‘masters’, a move eerily similar to Nazi Germany’s creation of the Hitler Youth designed to accomplish the same goal.
To what the Obama regime is doing to the American peasant class is even worse as new reports show them failing to stop the dispensing of a popular stop-smoking drug called Chantix that has resulted in hundreds of suicides psychotic reactions or stopping the ingestion into food and drink the dangerous chemical Aspartame that scientists warn is the cause of thousands of premature births and cancer deaths.
To the worse horrors to come, the American people remain blissfully ignorant, but one has no doubt that when these deluded people see that their “American Dream” is, in fact, an “American Nightmare”, the facing of their “new reality” will be more than they can bear. May God have mercy on them all.

President Obama’s Speech;
It needs no repeating that our main interest in the region is oil.The Arabs are smart enough to know not to challenge our interests, our power, or even contemplate asking us to remove our basis. For as long as there is oil, as long as there is Israel, the 300 million Arabs as well as the 1.6 Billion Muslims know instinctively not
to cross swords with America or Israel. We’ve demonstrated such in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
After Breached Pakistan sovereignty, US officials signaled the Saudis and others have no good option to the US as a guarantor of security and never “looking east” – to China and Russia for alternative security assistance.The new $60 billion arms sale made to the Saudis, on condition that US will deploy special elite security force in Saudi Arabia that would fall under the US Central Command. The force would have up to 35,000 members “to protect the kingdom’s oil riches and future nuclear sites.’’
US Prepares New Declaration Of “Worldwide War Without End”
A shocking new report emerging from the United States today shows that the bloodlust of America’s elite class has broken all the constraints of normal humanity as they push forward a law that amounts to nothing short of a never-ending Declaration of War against the entire world.
According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), these American warmongers have installed what they call a “sleeper provision” deep inside a number of defense bills pending before the US Congress that could become the single biggest hand-over of unchecked war authority from the Congress to the Executive Branch in modern American history.
This new law, the ACLU further says, would give President Obama unlimited power to wage war against anyone he chooses to, even the American people.
The final nail in the coffin, so to speak, for the American peoples hope for freedom was, also, completely obliterated yesterday by the US Supreme Court refusing to hear a case involving US military detainees held without trial or charges and tortured, but which the Court ruled could not be heard because the government invoked what is called its “States Secret Privilege” meaning anything they want to do they can.
In order to fully understand what these American people are facing one need look no further than last weeks presentation by Obama’s top lawyer to the US Supreme Court in defending the Presidents new healthcare law wherein he stated that the US government has the “absolute power” to order its citizens to purchase consumer goods or do anything else it tells them to do.
Equally as chilling was a ruling this past week by the Supreme Court of the State of Indiana overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215 and stating that their citizens had no right to defend themselves against rogue police forces entering their homes illegally. This ruling is all the more shocking being that the Americans fought their war for independence from the British over this exact issue of Crown forces illegally entering their homes.
For the United States to openly declare war against the entire world shows the sheer desperation of their elite class led by Obama, and the shocking facts about what America has become backs them up, in spades!
U.S. diplomats scored a silent victory last month when the Italian oil company Eni and Russian energy giant Gazprom postponed a deal to share a large claim to Libyan oil. The State Department can’t take credit, however, as the two companies based their decision to shelve the arrangement was based on the violence in the region. But it’s all part of a bigger plan to keep access to oil out of Russia’s paws, reports McClatchy’s Kevin G. Hall based on a recent release of WikiLeaks cables. Gazprom, once a part of the Soviet Union’s gas ministry, has been busy
buying up oil and gas reserves across Europe and the Middle East. In 2008, the state-run company even attempted to buy all of Libya’s natural gas and oil. Since then, United States diplomats discussed how prevent Libyan oil from making its way to Russia in the
Russia’s role in the battle over energy resources is growing increasingly tense. Another set of WikiLeaks cables reveals the United States and allies are fighting an increasingly fierce battle over oil and gas in the Arctic. There’s even been mounting discussion about the danger of an armed conflict breaking out, according to a report in The Guardian:
“Instead of seeing the melting of the Arctic ice cap as a spur to action on climate change, the leaders of the Arctic nations are instead investing in military hardware to fight for the oil beneath it. They’re preparing to fight to extract the very fossil fuels that caused the melting in the first place. It’s like pouring gasoline on a fire…”
There is also concern that Russia may be manoeuvring to claim ownership over huge areas of the Arctic, with one senior Moscow source alleging that a Russian explorer’s submarine expedition to plant a flag on the seabed beneath the North Pole was ordered by Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party.
Officials have downplayed the idea of calling the Nato allies’ quiet conflict with Russia and others over oil a “new cold war,” but journalists are scurrying to coin the term.

Obama Orders Israel Thrown To ‘Arab Wolves’ To Save Saudi Oil By: Sorcha Faal
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]

Hundreds of rebel fighters have retreated from the strategic oil port of Ras Lanouf as Muammar Gaddafi’s army pounds the town with artillery.
The rebels fled eastward in cars and pickup trucks mounted with machine guns.
One said government forces were raining rockets or tank shells on the city in what appeared to be preparation for a full-scale advance.Russia’s foreign minister warned world powers on Thursday against meddling in the affairs of Libya and other African countries, saying military intervention would be unacceptable.”In the United Nations charter and other international accords, it is clearly stated that each nation has the right to decide its own future,” Lavrov
without ammunition it help us to fleeing the battle zone
Mycomments: This just clarify the fact that the body called UN is a joke. So who gives NATO right to impose a no fly zone? And France recognising the rebels is another stupidity. Whats will happen if Gaddafi re-control the country? France & UK will be to apologize and beg in order to continue trade business.
Libya may sever diplomatic relations with France and other Western powers if they back rebels fighting Muammar Gaddafi’s rule, a deputy foreign minister said on Thursday.
Earlier in the day, France recognised a rebel body in eastern Libya as the legitimate representative of Libya’s people — the first country to make the move. Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Kaim said the Libyan government was considering cutting off relations with Paris.
“We think this (France’s recognition) is illegal,” he told reporters. “If the French government goes ahead with this we will see no other possibility than to break diplomatic relations with France. … All options will be considered.”
Asked separately if the same applied to other Western nations, he said:
“Yes, it’s possible, why not, if there are hostile actions, if they are recognising the separatists then we have to take (action). But I hope they will have second thoughts on that.”
Later, British Prime Minister David Cameron joined French President Nicolas Sarkozy in calling on their European partners to recognise the Libyan National Council as a viable political entity.
The French announcement came as NATO and the European Union begin talks on Thursday on a possible “no-fly” zone over Libya after some of the fiercest fighting of the three-week-old uprising against Gaddafi.
