As the Arab Spring grinds on into autumn, the Russians are asking once again whether they should follow the policy “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”, says Eric Walberg ______________________ Muammar Al-Gaddafi’s demise is all but a done thing, carried out with a UN blessing, however dubious, and only belatedly opposed by Russia and […]

They ask the villainous horns of lies to save them with a lie or two, a rumor or two here and there. At the beginning they said he’s gone to Venezuela; it turned out to be a lie now they’re fed up and they’ve said he’s gone to Niger. To destroy your morale and make your surrender; this is an indication that they know that your morale and spirits are high.

International Green March The North Atlantic tribes, under the banner of NATO, and their Arab flunkies are lining up for a showdown in Sirte. Muammar Qaddafi and the Al Fateh revolutionary forces remain defiant and have issued statements saying that they will never surrender. Their extraordinary resistance has most certainly earned them a place in […]

Voltaire Network has received letters from many readers enquiring about Al-Qaeda in Libya. To respond to them, Thierry Meyssan has assembled the main data available on the issue. The facts confirm his analysis, defended since the events of September 11, that Al Qaeda is a hotbed of mercenaries used by the United States to fight […]

-Western nations cannot win in the marketplace anymore. Now their states come to aid their companies. With their military presence in Libya, French, British and American companies are expected to get lucrative contracts in Libya’s oil industry and reconstruction. What a wonderful business practice! The NATO airplanes did a good job destroying the infrastructure, and […]

‘Sovereign is he who decides on the exception,’ Carl Schmitt wrote in different times almost a century ago, when European empires and armies dominated most continents and the United States was basking underneath an isolationist sun. What the conservative theorist meant by ‘exception’ was a state of emergency, necessitated by serious economic or political cataclysms, […]

[Editorial] The US-led NATO recolonization attempt of Libya, as always in the name of so-called “human rights, democracy and freedom,” and this time specifically with the great fanfare of so-called “civilian protections” and of course absolutely unjustifiably sanctioned again by the “United Nations Security Council,” still continues. Of course, the NATO does, again as usual, […]

After the former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo condemned NATO’s war against Libya last week, the current Nigerian government now also starts to realize what they have recognized: a “National Transitional Council” whose rebels are mass killing Nigerian nationals who have settled in Libya. On Sunday Foreign Minister Olugbenga Ashiru received distress calls from Nigerians who […]

CARACAS: Xinhua News Agency- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Monday repeated requests that the United States and the European Union (EU) stop military intervention in the Libya.

Which of the two countries is more prone to be the object of NATO’s next military intervention, given the interests of the Western countries and their regional allies such as Saudi Arabia? NATO’s air raids on Libya, with the suspicious permit of the United Nations Security Council, which had only, by the way, authorized the […]

Enough about The Big G’s downfall. Now comes the real nitty-gritty; Afghanistan 2.0, Iraq 2.0, or a mix of both. The “NATO rebels” have always made sure they don’t want foreign occupation. But the North Atlantic Treaty Organization – which made the victory possible – can’t control Libya without boots on the ground. So multiple […]

Message from Aisha Qadafi, September 3, 2011: “Even if my father and my brothers are martyred, I will continue my fight against Islamic terrorists in Libya.

“Why are you attacking us? Why are you killing our children? Why are you destroying our infrastructure?” – Television address by Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi, April 30, 2011 A few hours later NATO hit a target in Tripoli, killing Gaddafi’s 29-year-old son Saif al-Arab, three of Gaddafi’s grandchildren, all under twelve years of age, and […]

At a press conference in Tripoli on Aug. 26, a statement read aloud by top Libyan rebel commander Abdel Hakim Belhadj was reassuring. Just a few months ago, disorganized and leaderless rebel fighters seemed to have little chance at ousting Libyan dictator Moammar Ghaddafi and his unruly sons. But despite vague references to “pockets of […]

Rebel leaders dismiss suggestions that firm promises have been made, but supportive countries look set to benefit   The starting pistol has been fired on bids by Britain and other western powers to secure a slice of the oil prize in Libya when France said it was “fair and logical” for its companies to benefit. […]

Resolutions 1970 and 1973 (2011) of the UN Security Council were very clear in their terms: No foreign military personnel, no mercenaries, no weapons to the parties in conflict and inspection of vessels ferrying arms and soldiers. NATO has breached all four counts and now is liable for prosecution under international law. Resolutions 1970 and […]

When the Cold War ended, many believed there would be a peace dividend, nuclear disarmament, and dismantling of the war machine with industrial conversion to peaceful technology. Instead, we’ve witnessed the aggressive expansion of NATO, to include the former Soviet Republics, right up to the Russian border, which should be a wake-up call to many […]

Nicaragua’s President Daniel Ortega announced that his government does not recognize the Libyan rebels’ National Transitional Council (NTC) as the legitimate representative of the Libyan people and described NTC as “an instrument of intervention by NATO forces.” “We can not recognize it.
