France Displays Unhinged Hypocrisy as Bombs Fall on Mali - #AQIM #Alqaeda #Libya #Mali #LIFG #France

"NATO funding, arming, & simultaneously fighting Al Qaeda from Mali to Syria.

(LD) - A deluge of articles have been quickly put into circulation defending France's military intervention in the African nation of Mali. TIME's article, "The Crisis in Mali: Will French Intervention Stop the Islamist Advance?" decides that old tricks are the best tricks, and elects the tiresome "War on Terror" narrative.

TIME claims the intervention seeks to stop "Islamist" terrorists from overrunning both Africa and all of Europe. Specifically, the article states: 

"...there is a (probably well-founded) fear in France that a radical Islamist Mali threatens France most of all, since most of the Islamists are French speakers and many have relatives in France. (Intelligence sources in Paris have told TIME that they’ve identified aspiring jihadis leaving France for northern Mali to train and fight.) Al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), one of the three groups that make up the Malian Islamist alliance and which provides much of the leadership, has also designated France — the representative of Western power in the region — as a prime target for attack."

SONS OF MALCOLM: LIBYAN 'FREEDOM' BY nATO & THEIR DEATH SQUADS: MURDER UP 503% SINCE FALL OF GADDAFI #R2P #Gaddafi #Libya #Saif #NATO

"Where are those scum now who championed this nato putsch from Feb 2011 as a "revolution"? Total silence. They have been proved wrong by Gaddafi who said this would happen back in Feb 2011. They hae been proved by history to be the tools and slaves of the white devils in nato.

502 murders in 2012? How about over 50,000 killed by nato n six months in 2011? Sorry, that was "liberation".

There is no actual 'ministry of the interior', there is no government in Libya, no law, the country is a patch work of death squads unleashed by nato in Feb 2011. I am not in any way giving any credit to the media organisation of this news source, quite the opposite. ... "

In Libya: Why the Benghazi Investigation Is Going Nowhere | TIME.com #Alqaeda #Hillary #Benghazi #Libya

In Libya: Why the Benghazi Investigation Is Going Nowhere | TIME.com #Alqaeda #Hillary #Benghazi #Libya | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"Four months after a brutal assault on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi killed the ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, politicians in Washingtonare still railing over how diplomats were left vulnerable to attack. Yet the political furor, which now threatens to hold up President Obama’s national-security nominations, stands in stark contrast to the response in Libya itself. There, Libyans say, the investigation is nonoperational, if not effectively dead, with witnesses too fearful to talk and key police officers targeted for violent retribution. “There is no Libyan investigation. No, no, no,” says Mohamed Buisier, a political activist in Benghazi, who returned home in 2011 after decades in the U.S. “There is not even a will to investigate anything. Even for us civilians, it is very dangerous if you talk about this subject.” ... "

Obama picks sociopathic liar directly responsible for mass murder to lead the CIA | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"In October 2011, 16-year-old Tariq Aziz attended a gathering in Islamabad where he was taught how to use a video camera so he could document the drones that were constantly circling over his Pakistani village, terrorizing and killing his family and neighbors.

Two days later, when Aziz was driving with his 12-year-old cousin to a village near his home in Waziristan to pick up his aunt, his car was struck by a Hellfire missile.

With the push of a button by a pilot at a US base thousands of miles away, both boys were instantly vaporized—only a few chunks of flesh remained." ...."

Libyan tug of war : McGill Reporter #Libya #Saif #Gaddafi #Akhavan #ICC #Justice #FreeSaif #Feb17CRIMES #R2P | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"Should Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi be prosecuted for mass atrocities before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague or a national court in post-revolutionary Libya? McGill Law professor Payam Akhavan has been playing a key role in deciding this important question, as counsel for Libya’s fledgling government.

Under the ICC Statute, Libya is supposed to surrender both its prisoners for the case The Prosecutor v. Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi and Abdullah Al-Senussi, unless they are prosecuted before its national courts. Last May, the fledgling government asked the ICC to drop its case, arguing that the nation is ready and willing to put Gaddafi and Senussi on trial at home. Libya’s legal team includes Michelle Butler, Professor Philippe Sands, and Akhavan. (...)"

Quociente Cultural 's insight:

Akhavan do an analogy in between #Iranelection and Arab spring ... I must say: I helped #Iranelection during 2 years as I'm helping Pro-Gaddafi Libya. ... Take ur own conclusions.

I'm Deffending Human Rights in the right sides.

“I Have a Drone”. Obama’s “Military Dream” Is Backfiring | Global Research | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

" Michael Boyle, who was on Obama’s counter-terrorism advisory group in the run-up to the 2008 election, writes  in a study for the Chatham House journal International Affairs that Obama abandoned his pledge to restore respect for the rule of law following the Bush administration.

Obama “has been just as ruthless and indifferent to the rule of law as his predecessor [maybe worse] … while President Bush issued a call to arms to defend ‘civilisation’ against the threat of terrorism, President Obama has waged his war on terror in the shadows, using drone strikes, special operations and sophisticated surveillance to fight a brutal covert war against al-Qaida and other Islamist networks,” Boyle writes. ...

"So Bashar al-Assad hath martially spoken - for the first time in seven months - predictably blaming the Syrian civil war on "terrorists" and "Western puppets".

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, he of the former "zero problems with our neighbors" policy, commented that Assad only reads the reports of his secret services. C'mon, Ahmet; Bashar may be no Stephen Hawking, but he's certainly getting his black holes right.

Assad, moreover, has a plan: a national dialogue leading to a national charter - to be submitted to a referendum - and then an enlarged government and a general amnesty. "

Rebel Groups In Africa, How Are They Funded? | #Libya #Africa #Racism #ows #Gaddafi #NATO #MENA | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

" During NATO’s war in Libya (2011), France and Qatar under the UN’s watch delivered weapons in large quantities to the rebels whom the Western press often referred to as “activists” and “revolutionaries”. In addition to the weapons, the rebels also received communication equipment which facilitated and coordinated their movements across the continent smoothly. Since many of the rebels consider themselves to be “allies”, who are working for a common purpose, it wasn’t difficult for some of the weapons that were delivered to rebels in Libya to be quickly mobilized and smuggled to other rebel groups in the West African region. It was recently reported that large amount of weapons from Libya have been found in Nigeria. "

"AS THE US struggles to understand last September’s attack on its diplomatic mission in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including US ambassador J Christopher Stevens, a formal investigation has not even been opened in Libya — and likely never will be.

The country’s leaders face myriad challenges — including a vocal federalist movement in the east, aimed at usurping the central government’s prerogatives, and a wave of assassinations targeting security officials — which leaves them few resources to allocate to a case that poses no immediate threat to their domestic standing. ...

« “France no longer recognizes its children,” lamented Guillaume Roquette in an editorial in the Figaro weekly magazine in Paris. “How can the country of Victor Hugo, secularism and family reunions produce jihadists capable of attacking a kosher grocery store?” 1

I ask: How can the country of Henry David Thoreau, separation of church and state, and family Thanksgiving dinners produce American super-nationalists capable of firing missiles into Muslim family reunions in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia?

Does America recognize its children? Indeed, it honors them. Constantly.

A French state prosecutor stated that “A network of French Islamists behind a grenade attack on a kosher market outside Paris last month also planned to join jihadists fighting in Syria.” 2 ... »

Destroying Libya: A War for “Human Rights”? | #Libya #R2P #NATO #Gaddafi #UN | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"The war in Libya never happened. At least that is what one might think, considering the dearth of serious analysis and critical reflection in Canada since our participation in NATO’s bombardment campaign ended a year ago. Yet in Libya, in many ways the war is still happening. If we (we as in all the federal political parties) thought we could bomb a country into democracy and respect for human rights, we were worse than just naïve. We were guilty of hiding our motivations, and guilty of ignoring the consequences of our actions.

How the war was sold to the public needs to be revisited lest we treat war as merely a temporary spectacle of no consequence. We were told that Muammar Gaddafi threatened mass atrocities, even “genocide,” against Benghazi. We were told that he fueled his troops with Viagra, so they could go on a systematic spree of mass rape. We were told that he used the air force against unarmed, peaceful protesters. We were told that he imported African mercenaries to butcher his opposition. And we were told that our military intervention would save lives and was designed to protect civilians.

The problem is that none of that was true. ..."
