DAMASCUS, (SANA) – Terrorist Khaled Aoad al-Salem, who served 21 years in jail for previous arms smuggling, confessed to smuggling weapons from Aleppo to Damascus three times in two months.Al-Salem said “While I was in prison, I met two people, Abu Hussein and Abu Zaid… When I got out, Abu Zaid phoned me asking me […]

France will be allocated 35 % of Libyan oil supplies prior to this, If France is to be allocated this amount then how much has been allocated to Italy, Britain & America this means that we have been sold out! Imagine destroying our homes, farms, schools and hospitals and they ask us to pay for all this from our oil revenues and more. These are people that have sold their consciousness and morals to the benefit of the West. Extremist Islam has taken over, instead of our moderate ‘lovely’ Islam that was prevalent, by the assigning of Abdelhakim Belhaj which was apprehended by the CIA for terrorist activities.

The Libyan rebels’ August 23 attack on the Venezuelan embassy and compound in Tripoli went largely unreported, though fatalities were narrowly averted as Venezuelan ambassador Afif Tajeldine and the embassy staff moved to a safer location at the last moment and left Libya shortly thereafter. It transpired in the wake of the incident that Venezuela’s […]

For the disciplinary scholars and geopolitics chessboard practitioners, the current events in (and around) the Arab countries are particularly instructive. The difference between a dialectic and cyclical history is (in) a distance between success and fall. Still, we are not yet sure: Since we are lacking a critical time-distance and sufficient information (the region is […]

The tide of change that swept across North Africa and the Middle East this year makes it look likely that, seven years after its formulation in the epoch of G. Bush’s presidency, the seemingly shelved Greater Middle East plan finally began to materialize. The plan has, in fact, been adopted as a foundation of the […]

  And Libyan Rebels Thank US and Sack Venezuelan Embassy       Victor Nieto is a cartoonist in Venezuela.  His cartoons frequently appear in Aporrea and Rebelión among other sites.  Cf.

This is the war on terror and the war of terror, the Project for the New American Century, or the New World Order, crafted before the events of September 11, 2001 and trafficked to a frightened-beyond-reason public unwilling to examine why we’re hated, receptive only to “they’re jealous of our freedoms.” Frenzied by nationalism, our […]

These top ten myths are some of the most repeated claims, by the insurgents, and/or by NATO, European leaders, the Obama administration, the mainstream media, and even the so-called “International Criminal Court”—the main actors speaking in the war against Libya.

A spokesman for Libya’s NTC called Algeria’s refusal to recognize the NTC and their acceptance of Gaddafi’s close relatives “acts of aggression against the Libyan people”. Another sign of the nature of the Libyan rebel NTC is their unfounded arrogance against Algeria. After alleged atrocities against African citizens and their failure to at least give […]

The Foreign Ministry of Cuba has withdrawn its diplomatic staff from Libya, where foreign intervention and NATO military aggression has exacerbated the conflict and prevented the Libyan people from advancing toward a peaceful negotiated solution, in full exercise of their self-determination. The Republic of Cuba does not recognize the Transitional National Council, nor any provisional […]

But the “pro-democracy” movement integrated by Islamists and supported by NATO and the “international community” did not emanate from the mainstay of Syrian civil society. The protests largely dominated by Islamists represent a very small fraction of Syrian public opinion. They are of a sectarian nature. They do no address the broader issues of social inequality, civil rights and unemployment.

Another “Liberation”, another Unimaginable International Criminal Tragedy     Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious. (Oscar Wilde, 1854-1900.)   As Eid, the great post Ramadan celebration of that month of abstinence, self sacrifice and reflection, dawned on Libya, marked there this year on August 31st,  the NATO “liberated” country, after seven months, looks a […]

NATO members that have been participating in air strikes in Libya include France, Britain, the United States, Canada, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, and Italy. I would like to make formal charges against the NATO alliance for war crimes committed in Libya. France, Britain, United States, Canada, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands and Italy are joint members of the […]

What does the occupation of Tripoli by Libyan rebel forces tell us? Shadi Hamid, director of research at the Brookings Doha Center, said Libya confirms that the role of external actors (in this case, the United States and Europe) can still be decisive in the Arab struggle for freedom. First, some Libyans that joined Al-Qaida […]

After some 8,000 bombing raids, with estimates of 4 bombs used per attack NATO has already dropped over 30,000 bombs on Libya. That’s almost 200 bombs per day for 6 months, some tens of thousands of tons of high explosives. With an estimated 2 Libyans killed per bomb and without a single NATO casualty the […]

Libya may be yet another country for NATO to take root in, suspects Rick Rozoff, who sees the repetition of an all-too-familiar modus operandi. First, NATO carpet bombs the whole country from top to bottom, then sets up military bases and finally doesn’t leave. In Kosovo, Camp Bondsteel is still going strong, and there are […]

In the video below, former four star general and NATO commander Wesley Clark talks about the neocon plan to invade seven countries in five years. Included in the plan was an attack on Libya. Clark mentions the plan at two minutes, 26 seconds into the video. The video was recorded on October 3, 2007, at […]

The “Friends of Libya” conference held in Paris Thursday signaled the beginning of the imperialist carve-up of the oil-rich North African country. Jointly chaired by French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Prime Minister David Cameron, the conference included participation by those countries which provided the fire-power under the umbrella of NATO and using a United […]

Bank fraudsters, torturers, and war criminals running free… With bank fraudsters, torturers, and war criminals running free, the US Department of Justice (sic) has nothing better to do than to harass the famous Tennessee guitar manufacturer, Gibson , arrest organic food producers in California  and send 12 abusive FBI agents armed with assault […]

The Orwellian hypocrisy of NATO’s mission “to protect civilians” in Libya has now been encapsulated in a vow from a NATO-backed Libyan rebel who announced plans to crush the few towns still loyal to Muammar Gaddafi with the words, “sometimes to avoid bloodshed you must shed blood,” as Robert Parry reports. By NATO’s war in Libya, […]
