It is a NATO FORCE that has taken Tripoli ,NOT A REBEL FORCE!
NATO has just destroyed the “Switzerland of Africa”. It was a secular direct democracy socialist country with the highest living standards in Africa!!
NATO is about to install an unelected, unpopular, islamic dictatorship on the Libyian people BY FORCE, while it claims to support humanitarianism and democracy and freedom!?!?
This is a WAR CRIME , its just a Western Fascist backed grab for Libya resourses, and they had to do it now ,before thier “UN mandate” ran out on Sept. 2nd! US involvement in NATO’s campaign in Libya has just two days left before a 90-day limit on military action without Congress approval runs out
PROOF ITS A NATO “VICTORY” NOT A REBEL VICTORY
Libyan Rebels Call in NATO to Stop Qaddafi Counteroffensive as Fighting Rages
Tripoli – Libyan rebels called in support from NATO jets to stop a counteroffensive by loyalist troops in Tripoli in the early hours of Friday, as the fight continued for full control of the city.
Forces loyal to the elusive Muammar Qaddafi staged two counterattacks at around 02:00am local time near the Bab al Aziziya compound and the Rixos hotel in central Tripoli
Libyan conflict far from being over
Opposition members say that from now on, all political guidance will be provided from the official capital, which the rebel army would never be able to occupy without NATO assistance. This sensational statement may expose the alliance’s reputation to risk and is fraught with major political complications within the coalition, experts claim.
“Three weeks ago, NATO claimed to be acting in compliance with the UN Security Council’s resolution banning it from direct interference in the conflict. Today we see that all conventions were discarded and NATO got involved in Libya’s confrontation as a third party, the rebel’s ally. This was obvious even before the assault of Tripoli when NATO instructors began to appear in the opposition ranks. Thus, Tripoli was attacked not so much by Libyan rebels as members of NATO security services disguised as Arabs. It was them who cleared the way for the opposition to enter a direct fight against Gaddafi troops. If the US now joins the search for the Colonel, this will mean an open phase of the ground operation,” Leonid Fituni said.
According to some experts, both NATO and Libyan rebels drove themselves into a trap when occupying Tripoli. First of all, Gaddafi’s whereabouts and capacity are still unknown, with his followers still controlling a number of the capital’s districts. Analysts say Tripoli’s surrender could have only been a tactical move. Secondly, the NTC acknowledged the day before that it cannot put an end to marauding within its army, which may provoke a feedback from local residents who are still considered loyal to Muammar Gaddafi. In other words, the conflict in Libya is far from being over and may even linger for a long time in view of the new circumstances.
Libya: Tripoli Stands in Defiance of NATO
Reports of rebel leaders presiding over Tripoli a confirmed lie.
(Tony Cartalucci) Despite sweeping headlines claiming the Benghazi rebel terrorists have shifted their leadership over to Tripoli after continuous claims of the city falling to rebels after over a week of continuous fighting, BBC has slipped out the fact that this claim is a verified lie. Buried within an article titled, “Horror scenes at Tripoli hospital,” BBC conceded that the rebels have constructed a makeshift landing strip in the western Nafusa mountains where they are “reported to be staying,” only visiting Tripoli in daytime for quick photo opportunities. The article continues by also conceding the self-proclaimed, unelected leader of the rebels, Abdul Jalil and “other key leaders” are staying in the east because of “the lack of security in Tripoli.” That is of course when these “key leaders” aren’t groveling in Doha, Paris, and Rome before their Western sponsors.
This definitively exposes the current operations inside Libya as a desperate psychological war with the corporate media explicitly deceiving the public with misleading headlines under which facts are buried by mountains of minutia, carefully worded propaganda, unverified innuendos, and outright lies.
NATO & Rebel Murder-Spree Creating a Real Humanitarian Crisis
In another disturbing development, it appears that the rebels control a single concentration of troops within Tripoli that are scrambling from one NATO designated objective to another, streaming in after aerial bombardments on civilian infrastructure and leaving in their wake mass murder and complete social dysfunction. A hospital in the previously government controlled Abu Silem district has been abandoned after a NATO bombardment followed by rebel advances. NATO bombs also destroyed a local fire station and there are now reports of black Africans turning up in large numbers, dead, in hospitals.
THE REBELS CANNOT HOLD ONTO TRIPOLI WITHOUT NATO.BUT THE REBELS HAVE MANAGED TO SPREAD DEATH AND TERROR ,SO MUCH FOR HUMANITARIANISM
Rebels Settle Scores in Tripoli Through Executions
by John Glaser, August 27, 2011
Around 30 men lay decomposing in the heat. Many of them had their hands tied behind their back, either with plastic handcuffs or ropes. One had a scarf stuffed into his mouth. Almost all of the victims were black men. Their bodies had been dumped near the scene of two recent battles between rebel and regime forces in Tripoli, so as to disguise their brutal execution at the hands of the rebels.
Signs of mass executions
Outside his Bab al-Aziziya compound, which rebels captured Tuesday, there was another grim scene — one that suggested mass, execution-style killings of civilians.
About two dozen bodies — some with their hands bound by plastic ties and with bullet wounds to the head — lay scattered on grassy lots in an area where Gadhafi sympathizers had camped out for months.
The identities of the dead were unclear, but they were in all likelihood activists who had set up an impromptu tent city in solidarity with Gadhafi in defiance of the NATO bombing campaign.
Five or six bodies were in a tent erected on a roundabout that had served as a field clinic. One of the dead still had an IV in his arm, and another body was completely charred, its legs missing. The body of a doctor, in his green hospital gown, was found dumped in the canal.
BUT WHAT DID YOU EXPECT FROM AL QAEDA REBELS ? DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM?
Pepe Escobar: Al-Qaeda asset leading rebels in Tripoli
The hostility persists in Tripoli and the Libyan rebels continue the search for Gaddafi, but who is leading the rebels? Who are the beneficiaries of the fall of Gaddafi? What will the blowback be for those in Libya and across the globe? Pepe Escobar, a correspondent for Asia Times, gives us some answers to these questions.

Libyan rebels are united by hatred towards the current leader. Once Colonel Gaddafi is out of the game, they will turn on each other and NATO, predicts Abdel Bari Atwan, editor of London-based pan-Arabic newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi
The “Liberation” of Libya: NATO Special Forces and Al Qaeda Join Hands
“Former Terrorists” Join the “Pro-democracy” Bandwagon
by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky
Extensive war crimes have been committed. NATO has blood on its hands. The heads of government and heads of state of NATO member countries are responsible for extensive war crimes
The “pro-democracy” rebels are led by Al Qaeda paramilitary brigades under the supervision of NATO Special Forces. The “Liberation” of Tripoli was carried out by “former” members of the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG).
The jihadists and NATO work hand in glove. These “former” Al Qaeda affiliated brigades constitute the backbone of the “pro-democracy” rebellion.
NATO special forces with “boots and the ground” pass unnoticed. Their identity is not known or revealed. They blend into the Libyan rebellion landscape of machine guns and pickup trucks. They are not highlighted in the photo ops.
Special forces composed of US Navy SEALS, British Special SAS Forces and French legionnaires, disguised in civilian rebel garb, are reported to be behind major operations directed against key government buildings including Gadhafi’s Bab al-Aziziya compound in central Tripoli.
According to DebkaFile (Israeli intelligence online report), the “pro-Al Qaeda brigades “led by LIFG Commander Abdel Hakim Belhadj constitute the dominant force of the rebellion, overriding the authority of the Transitional Council. They are in control of strategic buildings including Gadhafi’s compound.
“The LIFG chief [Abdel Hakim Belhadj] now styles himself “Commander of the Tripoli Military Council.” Asked by our sources whether they plan to hand control of the Libyan capital to the National Transitional Council, which has been recognized in the West, the jihadi fighters made a gesture of dismissal without answering. (Debka, Pro-Al Qaeda brigades control Qaddafi Tripoli strongholds seized by rebels, August 28, 2011 )
MEANWHILE THE FREE PRESS IS BEING THREATENED AND SHOT….BY NATO AND CNN
Indy Journalist Franklin Lamb Shot; Others Shot at and Threatened by CNN
Independent Journalist Mahdi Nazemroaya threatened by CNN staff (producer) and fired on at Tripoli hotel by NATO backed terrorists and snipers.
NATO has provided direct armed cover to these armed gangs, who have no political project, no dream for Libya and are filled with hatred. All they want is to destroy this beautiful city, especially the tribes, the families and the neighborhoods, that are well known for supporting the Leader of this country.
According to Dr. Musa Ibrahim more than 1300 martyrs and more than 5000 wounded people from todays NATO bombings.
See Press Conference here:
“1,300 people killed in Tripoli in the past 12 hours and over 900 injured (almost equal to the 3 week bombing of Gaza 08/09). This is the price of your silence.” -Lizzie Phelan, Tripoli 21.08.2011

Special Operations Clear Paths For Rebel Forces Attack On Sirte
By Christopher Stephen at Kilometre 60, eastern Libya
August 26, 2011 “Irish Times” – -Special Forces: British and French special forces are on the ground in eastern Libya, calling in air strikes and helping co-ordinate rebel units as they prepare to assault Sirte, the last coastal town still in the hands of pro-Muammar Gadafy forces, according to a rebel officer.
The soldiers have taken a leading role not only in guiding bombers to blast a path for opposition fighters but also in planning the offensive that broke the six-month Misurata siege, said Mohammed Subka, a communications specialist in the Al Watum brigade.
Yesterday afternoon, Subka and his unit waited at the rebel front line, known as Kilometre 60, aboard a column of battered black pick-up trucks mounted with heavy machine guns and a few tanks recently captured from Gadafy’s forces.
“We are with the England team,” he said. “They advise us.”
Kilometre 60 lies in the flat, empty desert, no more than a sand-coloured mosque and a wrecked diner at a traffic intersection. Sirte, Gadafy’s birthplace, lies 130km away.
The advance on the city could not begin until loyalist units south of the road ahead were cleared from their positions, Subka said, flipping open his laptop to show a map – apparently provided by Nato – of artillery positions threatening the route. “We don’t worry about those units. They are Nato’s concern,” he said.
Defence sources have confirmed that British special forces have been on the ground in Libya for several weeks, along with special forces from Qatar, France and some eastern European states.
Subka said British and French units had been operating in Misurata for several weeks, based somewhere near the city’s sprawling port, Kasa Ahmed.
THE REAL REASONS FOR THE WAR IN LIBYA IS RESOURSE THEFT…NATO COULD NOT GIVE A SH1T ABOUT LIBYIANS AND HUMANITARIANISM…THEY WOULD OF NOT BOMBED HOSPITALS AND RESIDENTIAL AREAS,JUST LIKE GADDAFFI HAD TOLD HIS FORCES NOT TO DO, IF THEY CARED ABOUT HUMANITARIANISM AND THE LIBYIAN PEOPLE
NATO Nations Set to Reap Spoils of Libya War
As rebels take Tripoli, foreign powers are eyeing the prize of Libya’s high quality crude oil.
By Rachel Shabi
August 26, 2011 “Al-Jazeera” — It looks like the more telling news on Libya has migrated to the business pages. With jubilant reporting of Gaddafi’s imminent downfall seizing headlines, it’s the financial pages that have the clinical analysis. So, for instance, it is in this section that the Independent reports a “dash for profit in the post-war Libya carve up”.
Similarly, Reuters, under the headline, “Investors eye promise, pitfalls in post-Gaddafi Libya” noted that a new government in that country could “herald a bonanza for Western companies and investors”.
Before Tripoli has completely fallen, before Gaddafi and his supporters have stepped down and before the blood dries on the bodies that have yet to be counted, Western powers are already eyeing up what they view us just rewards for the intervention.
There are no more illusions over how far NATO forces exceeded the UN security resolution that mandated its campaign. For months, NATO officials insisted it was operating within brief – an air campaign, designed to protect civilians under threat of attack. But now it is described as an “open secret” that NATO countries were operating undercover, on the ground.
Add to that the reluctance to broker a negotiated exit, the practice of advising, arming and training the rebels, and the spearheading of an escalation in violence and it looks like NATO’s job morphed from protecting civilians to regime change.
Oil for regime change
And there’s a reason for this sudden rush of honesty over its involvement. As alluded to by the Economist, each country’s contribution to the NATO effort in Libya is expected to have some impact on how much of the spoils it gets in the looming post-war period.
The French Le Figaro newspaper is keen to talk up Libya as “Sarkozy’s war”, while the British Telegraph drops references to the involvement of British military and intelligence officers, including MI6 and the RAF.
Aiding the Libyan rebel forces of the National Transitional Council has created a debt of gratitude. In the context of responsibility for what happens next in Libya, an anonymous British official told the Economist that NATO’s involvement in the Libyan uprising means that: “Now we own it.”
As Reuters reports, “Western companies look well positioned as billions of dollars in oil exploration and construction contracts come up for grabs as part of the reconstruction effort.”
Leaving aside the massive profits from the rebuilding that Libya is now going to need, there are vast oil spoils to distribute. The Libyan oil industry produced 1.6 million barrels a day prior to the war. The country is thought to have 46 billion barrels of reserves – the largest in Africa.
Winners and losers
And this is what the information manager at the rebel-controlled Arabian Gulf Oil Company, Libya’s largest oil producer, had to say about who it now intends to trade with: “We don’t have a problem with Western countries like the Italians, French and UK companies. But we may have some political issues with Russia, China and Brazil.” Those last three countries weren’t involved in the NATO mission in Libya.
OF COURSE WITH THE UK, FRANCE AND AMERICA ALL FACING ECONOMIC MELTDOWNS AND SOCIAL UNREST MUCH GREATER THAZN IN LIBYA BEFORE THE WAR.THIS IS JUST A VULGAR DISPLAY OF BRUTE FORCE AND A DESPERATE SMASH AND GRAB BY WESTERN POWERS,WHO REALLY HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO STEAL TO SURVIVE!!IF THEY HAD NOT CORRUPTED THE GOVERNMENT THEY WOULD BE BANKRUPT AND POWERLESS ALREADY!!!!

THE BRITISH TAXPAYER GETS HANDED THE BILL FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF LIBYA ,WHILE THE PRIVATE CORPORATIONS REEP ALL THE PROFITS!!
Tripoli bombings hit Britons’ in the wallet
As civilian deaths in Libya grow, anger mounts among the Western taxpayers footing the bill for the military intervention. The conflict is expected to cost one of its key players, the UK, hundreds of millions of pounds.
Crude Western interests in Libya
The fight is not over in Tripoli, but the carve-up of Libya’s vast oil riches – the biggest in Africa – is already beginning and no doubt the process will not come cheaply for the Libyan people.
The Italian Foreign Minister fired the starting gun, saying Italy’s ENI oil company will play the number-one role in the region.
British PM David Cameron already delivered a promise, seen by many as more of a threat, that the NATO mission in Libya, which is “to protect civilians,” will continue for “as long as it is needed” to ensure a safe transition to democracy.
As allied forces lend air support to the rebels to take Tripoli, the Stop the War Coalition warns Libyans not to expect that they are getting something for nothing.
“The Western powers do not do this without asking for a payback. Why is it that the head TNC [Transitional National Council] is running off to Paris to meet with the French President?” questions John Rees from the Stop the War Coalition. “Well of course that is one very important issue that was why the Western powers and Tony Blair and others struck a deal with Gaddafi in the first place. It will be exactly what they’re seeking to continue with the TNC to further exploit those oil riches.”
YES CONGRATULATIONS NATO ,WE HAVE JUST DESTROYED THE SWITZERLAND OF AFRICA
‘Before NATO intrusion, Libya was African Switzerland’
We also visited Libya before and what we found was a normal situation where people were fine. Differently from other countries that went through a revolution – Libya is considered to be the Switzerland of the African continent and is very rich and schools are free for the people. Hospitals are free for the people. And the conditions for women are much better than in other Arab countries.
RT:You’ve met Gaddafi personally on a number of occasions. What do you think post war and post Gaddafi Libya is going to look like?
YDV: Even if all the television stations are showing people fighting and demonstrating against Gaddafi, I personally saw many people demonstrating for Gaddafi. I don’t know why so many journalists are not showing this, because they are manipulating the situation. Independent media show these videos on the internet because there is more freedom. From what we saw personally from when we were in Libya and from the documents we got we saw the rebels as disorganized groups.
RT: Are there fears among the people that the rebels coming to power will prove an ongoing continuation of the volatile situation?
YDV: I believe that the rebels will not be able to do a good job after Gaddafi. Among them there are many extremist groups, Islamists, Tunisian people, I don’t know why they are there. Al-Qaeda, rebels from Libya that just wanted a change, but there is too much disorganization to make a good job.
Can you handle the TRUTH about Libya & the UN bombing?
I believed the lies about Gaddafi & Libya all my life.
Search for & discover the truth.
Gaddafi is a strong Arab leader who has stood up to Rothschild bankers, unlike our own leaders who have wilfully made us & our unborn children DEBT SLAVES.
Have the courage to know the truth & take it wherever it leads you or you & your families will one day be under NATO/NWO bombs.
Read Muammar Al Qaddafi’s Green Book.
Find out about the living standards & freedoms enjoyed by Libyans.
Research the Great Man Made River Project & then find out how Libya’s water supply has been targeted by the UN & NATO by bombs & special/black ops.
These are war crimes. Ignored & unreported by the inhuman Zionist mainstream media.
The 2 main objectives of behind the invasion of Libya are:
privatising the national oil company and the state-owned central banking system.
Wake up. Unless enough of us do, we will be picked off & set against each other by these banker fascists who laugh at how easily we are controlled.
THINK for yourself in these times, as if your life depended on it.
Love & respect to the people of Libya.
The main objectives behind the invasion of Libya, a sovereign country are the privatisation of the oil & banking industries.
Truth about Libya – Watch this video and be Shocked! I have Confirmed what this video claims is Truth! Libya had the Best Human Rights for the People and they were Free!
I watched this video and was shocked by what it claims in how amazing Libya is/was and how Gaddahfi treated his people. I didn’t believe that everyone had free electricity, free great medical care, interest free loans, govt. paid 50% for purchase of a car, govt gave newly married couples $50,000 to buy a house, the lists goes on and on in how well the Libyan people have/had it. The problem was Libya had an independent state bank, not part of BIS (Rothschild’s banks) and wanted to switch trading oil from dollars to gold.
Did you notice how clean the streets are and how nice all the buildings are in the video? Did you notice the nice cars? Did you notice how throughout all the streets you did not see any trash? Did you notice there was no poverty? Did you notice no one looked homeless and having to beg on the streets? Did you see the truth?
I am providing links of articles. – I am putting the actual links showing compared to embedded in the words so people can see where the articles actually come from and they are not blogs but newspapers around the world!
Qaddafi made HUMAN RIGHTS A PRIORITY IN LIBYA!
IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL REPLACE THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF LIVING IN AFRICA AND A SECULAR DIRECT DEMOCRACY(A MORE DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM THAN THE UK/EU/USA’S REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY) WITH A DYSFUNCTIONAL ISLAMIC DICTATORSHIP WITH DECLINING LIVING STANDARDS AND INCREASING TOTALTARIANISM AND ITS RESOURSES BEING OPEN TO PLUNDER BY THE WESTERN CORPORATIONS
….JUST LIKE WHAT WE DID IN YUGOSLAVIA
STOP THE NATO TAXPAYER FUNDED CORPORATE WAR MACHINE
BEFORE WE ATTACK IRAN OR SYRIA….TWO MORE NON-THREATENING COUNTRIES
MORALLY THE WEST LOST A LONG TIME AGO………..
WE NEED TO CHARGE NATO LEADERS WITH WAR CRIMES AND THROW THEM TO THIER VICTIMS!!
WE NEED TO ARREST THE MSM PRESSTITUTES THAT HAVE LIED US INTO ANOTHER ILLEGAL WAR AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!!!
