Why the death of Gaddafi caused a plague of locusts in Africa as despot's pest control system disintegrates

Why the death of Gaddafi caused a plague of locusts in Africa as despot's pest control system disintegrates | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

 

 

"The Arab Spring and the fall of Colonel Gaddafi have continued to have long-lasting effects across the entire African continent, after agricultural experts warned of swarms of locusts about to move from Libya into neighbouring countries.

 

The Food and Agricultural Organisation of the UN has warned that following the death of Libya's despot leader, thousands of the pests have been allowed to breed and move across the nation's poorly-monitored borders.

Experts believe that croplands in neighbouring Niger and Mali are now at imminent risk after locust swarms moved south from Libya and Algeria. ... "

 

 

Personal Note: The Problem are the Rebels, not the insects!

redecastorphoto: O que parece que ninguém está vendo | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
OK, decidi escrever mais um postado, antes de parar para o descanso de Páscoa, porque o assunto vale a pena.    Alguns de vocês perguntaram sobre o papel da China em tudo isso; quais os reais interesses dos EUA; como a União Europeia se está posicionando; e o que a Rússia quer ou não quer. E, mais ou menos envolvido nos detalhes dos eventos, nunca comentei algo que Putin, Lavrov e muitos outros importantes políticos russos vêm repetindo seguidas vezes:    O que estamos vendo acontecer ante nossos olhos é o fim de um sistema internacional e o surgimento de outro, qualitativamente diferente.   Interessante:Putin disse que, para ele, o ponto de não retorno foi ultrapassado quando os EUA e aliados no Conselho de Segurança da ONU e a OTAN, aberta e grosseiramente, distorceram a intenção do CS sobre a Líbia, e “ampliaram”, o que deveria ter sido uma “zona aérea de exclusão”, convertendo-a em “zona de tiro-livre” para atacar e bombardear a Líbia [claro que Putin via com perfeita clareza que a parte da Resolução em que se lia “todos os meios necessários para proteger civis” era convite descarado para que os anglo-sionistas “interpretassem” a Resolução como quisessem. Agora, Putin diz que “mentiram à Rússia”, para não culpar Medvedev por ter metido o pé num buraco muito fundo. Mas, aqui, isso não é relevante].

The Geneva agreement on Ukraine, translated. #Lavrov #Russia #US #Geneve #Ukraine

The Geneva agreement on Ukraine, translated. #Lavrov #Russia #US #Geneve #Ukraine | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Semyon Uralov, odnako.org
  
The talks in Geneva resulted in an agreement that is in favor of all that is good and opposed to all that is bad. That's the basic gist of it; but what does that mean? Let's translate this memorandum from the language of high diplomacy into the language of the Ukrainian crisis.

Kiev's government representative was invited to participate in his role as a potted plant—because there is nothing to discuss with him. On this all the participants were in complete agreement. That is, there is no government in Kiev, in the sense of an entity that exercises sovereign authority over the territory of Ukraine. This is understood equally well in Moscow, in Brussels and even in Washington. Thus, the actual talks were between USA+EU and Russia.
