By Barry Grey:   The conference on Libya held Tuesday at London’s Lancaster House was a repulsive exercise in hypocrisy and cynicism. In the name of liberating the Libyan people, the United States and Britain brought together foreign ministers from 40 countries and dignitaries from international organizations such as the United Nations, NATO and the […]

By Rick Rozoff: At its summit in Lisbon, Portugal last November the North Atlantic Treaty Organization adopted its first strategic concept for the 21st century, one in keeping with its expansion into not only a pan-European but a self-styled international military force. In addition to subordinating all of Europe to a U.S.-dominated interceptor missile system, […]

Libyan government spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, has accused the West of interfering in his country’s affairs without first entering into peaceful dialogue. He made the remarks, in an interview with British broadcaster, Sky News. He said, “We are the only party in the conflict that said let’s come to the negotiation table; we are the only […]

A war on Libya has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon for more than 20 years. On April 14th 1986, Ronald Reagan ordered a series of bombings directed against Libya under “Operation El Dorado Canyon”, in reprisal for an alleged Libya sponsored terrorist bombing of a Berlin discotheque. The pretext was fabricated. During […]

Translated by Peixin Lin: In recent days, countries such as the U.S., France and the U.K. have already conducted many rounds of air strikes against Libya. Following the bombing of the oil pipeline, the deaths of civilians and decreased internal stability, peace-loving people around the world are once again deeply aware of the fact that […]

 U.S. President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing the Central Intelligence Agency to conduct covert operations to help rebels in Libya, media reports said here on Wednesday. Obama signed the order, known as the presidential “finding”, within the last two or three weeks, reported Reuters, quoting government sources. But so far, there is […]

By José Luís Fiori:   The Obama family’s weekend trip to Brazil would have passed into history as a touristic event in Rio and an international courtesy if it hadn’t coincided with Japan’s nuclear disaster and the beginning of the aerial bombardment of Libya. Especially because the decision of the United States to attack the […]

According to the Xinhua News Agency, France, UK and the U.S. attacked targets in Libya by air and by sea on March 19. According to a statement by Libya State TV, by noon local time on March 20, 48 people had died. Libya accused the three Western countries of “colonial invasion,” requesting the United Nations […]

The first lie President Obama told the world came on Monday as he addressed his nation. He said NATO is taking over command from the US in Libya and that US action is limited to defending civilians who are under attack by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi.

But the fact is that transferring command to NATO makes no difference. NATO is dominated militarily and politically by the US, thus, the US still commands the destruction of Libya and is still involved in killing civilians with the missiles that are being dropped over the country. America, historically has never allowed its forces to operate in a foreign land under a foreign command – and this will not happen in Libya.

The unrest in the Middle East and Northern Africa, with more clashes taking place in Jordan and Syria, is now closely associated with e-technologies. The term “Twitter revolutions” came into being, with many people pointing out at the oddities of the crisis that have seen e-technologies at work. There may just be more to the recent […]

The initially stated aim of this bombing was to diminish Libyan civilian casualties. But many, senior figures in Washington, including President Obama, have indicated that the US is gearing up for a quite different war for regime change, one that may well be protracted and could also easily expand beyond Libya.1 If it does expand, the hope for a nonviolent transition to civilian government in Tunisia and Egypt and other Middle East nations experiencing political unrest, may be lost to a hard-edged militarization of government, especially in Egypt. All of us, not just Egyptians, have a major stake in seeing that that does not happen

“The world is suffering, at the same time, the consequences of climatic changes; shortages and prices of foods, military spending and the squandering of natural and human resources are increasing. War was the timeliest event that could happen at this time.” — ‘Partnership of Equals‘ By Fidel Castro Ruz I’m glad someone is on the […]

By Philip A. Farruggio: All empires, historically, were and are ravenous. They have to be, if part of being an empire is to advance beyond one’s borders and claim another’s land and resources as your own. So much is written of the Roman Empire, too much in semi glorifying terms. We read of their advanced […]

Pro-government forces fought back with mortar and artillery as rebels were making their way towards the coastal town of Sirte, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s hometown and an important military base. Print this entry

The military intervention by Western coalition forces in Libya will only create more uncertainties and worsen the humanitarian crisis in the country and the region. In fact, the humanitarian situation in Libya has deteriorated since the United States, France and Britain launched air strikes on March 19. The deepening political crisis and worsening humanitarian situation […]

Israel was an important beneficiary of these economic operations and Israel has been an important beneficiary of certain U.S. military operations, exactly as McGovern testified. The clear losers in this process are the people struggling globally for truth, justice, human rights, and peace. And there are clear and identifiable winners–if one dares to look.

Understanding who the winners are is

Britamgate: Staging False Flag Attacks in Syria On January 22 a telling leak cropped up in the Internet. British defense contractor’s BRITAM server was hacked and megabytes of classified internal files of the firm werereleased to the public. Now the case is acquiring aBritamgate scale due to the publication on Prison Planet. What is the story behind the leakage? Why this scandal is likely to turn around the situation in Syria? Let’s brief the files. The key finding is a mail dated December 24, 2012 sent by Britam Defence’s Business Development Director David Goulding to Dynamic Director of the firm Phillip Doughty, who is a former SAS officer: To clarify the things, CW is a standard abbreviation for Chemical Weapons; ‘g-shell’ is a bomb consisting of an explosive projectile filled with toxic gas. Taking into account the memorable Barack Obama’s warning that the ‘use or even transportation of chemical weapons by the Assad regime would represent a “red line” that would precipitate military intervention’, a message he reiterated last month after the election to the second term, the plotted operation, if carried out, would provide an ideal pretext for the foreign intervention into Syria.
