Muammar al-Gaddafi

GADDAFI’S MURDERERS MUST FACE THE WRATH OF THE LAW!

Muammar Gaddafi was buried at a secret location because Libyan interim rulers say they are preventing people from going to pray at his grave. This sounds bizarre. How can people go and pray at the grave of an unpopular person? We were informed by the western media that he was unpopular.

Gaddafi was buried following an autopsy (post mortem) confirmed that he was killed by a bullet to the temple (Patrice Lumumba was shot the same way in January 1961 by Frank Carlucci). Libya’s chief pathologist, Dr Othman al-Zintani made the autopsy confirmation, but refused to elaborate on Gaddafi’s final moments, saying he would first deliver a full report to the attorney general.

Libyan rebels posted a YouTube video of a young fighter claiming that he had shot Gaddafi in the head and chest. That young fighter is Sanad al-Sadek al-Urebi. Libyan authorities have said that they would not prosecute him if evidence emerged that he was the killer. Instead he would be treated as a national hero. International law must apply equally without duplicity, selective morality and double standards. NATO and NTC rebels have committed war crimes in Libya.

Washington Targeting China’s Achilles Heel

The Washington-led decision by NATO to bomb Gaddafi’s Libya into submission over recent months, at an estimated cost to US taxpayers of at least $1 billion, has little if anything to do with what the Obama Administration claims was a mission to “protect innocent civilians.” In reality it is part of a larger strategic assault by NATO and by the Pentagon in particular to entirely control China’s economic Achilles heel, namely China’s strategic dependence on large volumes of imported crude oil and gas. Today China is the world’s second largest imported of oil after the United States and the gap is rapidly closing.

If we take a careful look at a map of Africa and also look at the African organization of the new Pentagon Africa Command—AFRICOM—the pattern that emerges is a careful strategy of controlling one of China’s most strategically important oil and raw materials sources.

NATO’s Libya campaign was and is all about oil. But not about simply controlling Libyan high-grade crude because the USA is nervous about reliable foreign supplies. It rather is about controlling China’s free access to long-term oil imports from Africa and from the Middle East. In other words, it is about controlling China itself.

THE TRUTH AND THE MYTH OF THE WAR IN LIBYA

Hilary Clinton told USA Senators that American State Department needs more money to fight information war. She conceded that America was losing on this front. Unfortunately, African broadcasters do not seem to understand that they are weapons of US’s national interest warfare. There is no visible national interest in Africa political commentary on geo-political matters.

Libyan armed rebellion commonly presented as peaceful protest on mainstream media is a classic case of interest based political analysis among various national broadcasters. Aljazeera show Qatar’s perspective informed by the fact that Gaddafi denied them investment opportunities in Libya. BBC supports a British angle anchored by grudges of Lockerbie bombing. France24 put across a French point of view based on Libya’s support of revolutionaries in French speaking Africa whereas the CNN articulates American viewpoint which stems from Libya’s refusal to handover control to American oil corporations.
