Libya’s future hinges on the globalists’ ability to lie long enough to get an occupation force in place.
by Tony Cartalucci
It was reported that Richard Haas, president of the Fortune 500-lined Council on Foreign Relations, had stated clearly that “Libya now needs boots on the ground,” boots to be specific. Now joining the growing chorus of globalists calling for a full occupation of Libya is Neo-Con degenerate, fellow Council on Foreign Relations conspirator Max Boot who recently wrote an editorial for the LA Times titled, “Libya’s problems are far from over,” where he emphatically states “peacekeeping troops” are an absolute necessity to head off what the is already trying to brand an “insurgency” referring to the Libyan government’s defense of Tripoli.
To compound Boot’s apparent contempt for his readership’s intelligence, he claims that occupation forces will be needed to secure Libya’s “weapons of mass destruction,” and give the Libyan rebels time to build up professional security forces – rebels who are admitted members of Al Qaeda, many of whom are fresh back from murdering American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Boot’s only regret regarding the disastrous and still failing US occupation of Iraq was that more troops were not committed, seemingly suggesting Libya will be “done right” and a massive force will be landed to ensure the nation progresses as Wall Street and London desire.
Boot’s final insult to our intelligence is the claim that NATO currently appears to be refusing to commit to any such occupation force. In reality, NATO’s denials of such an occupation force are for perception-management purposes only. NATO troops are already on the ground, including SAS special forces, Qatari funded British mercenaries, Qatari and Emarati troops, and MI6 and CIA operatives. The UK has already admitted to having prepared at least 200 more troops to land in Libya at any given moment and arrangements are already underway to tap NATO members for additional troop commitments.
The only complication for Boot and his degenerate co-conspirator Haas’ narrative is that Tripoli has not yet fallen. The rebels, even with NATO ground forces assisting them, are approaching now a full week of fighting to take the capital in operations that promised to be over “in hours not days.” The mainstream has been perpetually assuring its dimwitted viewership that Tripoli is “virtually,” “almost,” “about to be,” “on the brink of,” “any moment,” falling into rebel hands. As rebels rush from one hallow photo opportunity to the other in an attempt to sell their “victory” to the world, the Libyan military forces have been hitting them from the southern situated Rixos Hotel, to the international airport in the far east of Tripoli. Quite clearly the capital is still contested, while other cities across Libya still remain firmly in government hands.
While Boot, Haas, and the degenerate bankster-serving media propagandists assume the public has bought the narrative that Libya is now a “NATO victory” and the occupation force will merely be a prudent conclusion to their operations to “ensure stability,” the reality is that Qaddafi and the Libyan army cannot be defeated by the rebel forces alone. By rushing the rebels’ contrived government from Benghazi to Tripoli, declaring them the victors in the capital amidst a historically unprecedented disinformation campaign, and now beginning to portray the Libyan army as “insurgents,” they are in fact setting the stage for a ground invasion – not occupation – to deal the Libyan military a death blow.
It is now confirmed that the ground operations against Tripoli that started last weekend were overwhelmingly a psychological operation attempting to belie NATO’s weakness. Outrageous propaganda and staged chaos following an unprecedented aerial bombardment by NATO was designed to panic and collapse entirely Tripoli’s defenses and utterly rout Libyan troops. Instead, troops weathered the chaos and as it ebbed, counterattacked with Qaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam leading the way. Saif had been “confirmed captured” by the Wall Street-London “International Criminal Court.” This is now exposed as obvious disinformation and the epitome of the sort of lies and propaganda employed by NATO in their desperate last-ditch bid to take Libya.
It should be noted, that Max Boot was one of the many Neo-Con warmonger, corporate fascist globalist stooges that signed a June 2011 letter addressed to US House Republicans imploring them to ignore both the will of the American people and the contrived UN mandate in order to lend the rebels “more assistance.” Fellow signatories including William Kristol have been promoting a ground invasion and the forceful removal of Qaddafi from power since the beginning of NATO operations, making an open mockery of the very “international laws” Kristol and others presume the US should be enforcing upon the world.
In war, when one relies on disinformation on the scale seen now used by NATO in Libya, it betrays their image of strength and the vitality of their campaign. If NATO and the rebels were truly as powerful and as capable as we are being told, there would be absolutely no need to obfuscate the facts on the ground in Libya to the extent that it is. Indeed, NATO’s latest attack on Tripoli was an absolute bluff which has been called by the Libyan people now in full resistance. The continued lies being peddled now by the media indicate a smokescreen being set up to give the rebel “government” enough time to squat in Tripoli and call in NATO troops.
The very fact that Libya’s rebels are still meeting in Paris and Doha to complete their “transition” instead of in Tripoli exposes how ignominiously deceptive news of their “victory” is. Qaddafi has vowed to fight on for years – and seeing how he has been the only one telling the truth from the beginning, be it the fact that the rebels are Al Qaeda terrorists or that the rebels were paving the way for an inevitable Western occupation – we would be wise to believe him rather than the infinitely duplicitous Western media – who promised us “no boots on the ground” for an operation that was promised to end months ago.
