THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY is a compelling factual history of neoconservatism and its influence on US Foreign Policy in the Middle East during the first decade of the twenty-first century. Click on image above for details.

Just a very quick one today; it seems Gaddafi has sunk to the same lunatic levels that the neocons in the Bush administration and their allies sank prior to killing the peoples of Afghanistan and Iraq by invoking the spectre of bin Laden as the cause of all the problems.

You can’t blame Gaddafi for trying; after all, it worked for the US and the West! But how many have died in Afghanistan and Iraq as a result?


Rumours of Gaddafi having been shot have sent oil prices tumbling which has allowed those that started the rumour to buy up big on oil so that when Gaddafi next has a rant on the TV denying he's been shot they can make a big profit.

There's alaways someone willing to make a profit out of other peoples misery - and often they are the ones that have caused the misery in the first place!

east libya..home of jihads

'Gadhafi’s son, Seif al-Islam, oversaw the program to rehabilitate LIFG militants, which his personal charity managed. The regime’s continued concern over the LIFG was clearly demonstrated early on in the unrest when it announced that it would continue the scheduled release from custody of LIFG fighters.

The Sinjar reports also reflected that more than 60 percent of the Libyan fighters had listed their home city as Darnah and almost 24 percent had come from Benghazi. These two cities are in Libya’s east and happen to be places where some of the most intense anti-Gadhafi protests have occurred in recent days. Arms depots have been looted in both cities, and we have seen reports that at least some of those doing the looting appeared to have been organized Islamists.'

just how trustworthy is Aljazeera?
'Now, there's nothing wrong with talking about Libya if the purpose is to convey accurate information about it. But there is everything wrong with making propaganda about it in such a way as to put its people at risk. And I'm afraid that's exactly what Al Jazeera has begun to do. Both in Arabic and English, it has been featuring leading members of the National Front for the Salvation of Libya, an outfit funded by the CIA and Saudi Arabia during the Cold War, as credible sources of news and views, much as the Western media have been doing.2

That is bad enough. Yesterday, Al Jazeera hit a new low: it gave the self-styled "Crown Prince" of Libya -- Muhammad as-Senussi -- a platform from which to call on "the international community to help remove Gaddafi from power and stop the ongoing 'massacre'." By the "international community," of course he doesn't mean those of us who might organize protests at Libyan embassies or that kind of thing. He means the great and not-so-great powers that may be persuaded to deploy their armed forces in Libya.

the NFSL are not a bunch of gandhian pacifists.....
