Qadhafi will be held accountable even if he steps down: U.S. … In a clear message to Muammar Qadhafi and his aides, the U.S. has said they would be held accountable for human rights violations against their own people, even if the Libyan leader leaves the country, putting an end to his over four-decade long regime. "We want to see Qadhafi step down, and one would infer that in stepping down it is probably best for him to leave the country, to allow a different government to emerge. Any departure from Libya does not exempt him, his family, or others from responsibility and accountability for what has occurred," State Department spokesman P. J. Crowley told reporters at his daily news conference. – Reuters
Dominant Social Theme: Where do all these spontaneous revolutions come from? Is it something in the water?
Free-Market Analysis: The United States and its allies do not want to get involved outright in Libyan warfare, or so we are told, but as we can see from the above article excerpt, the administration has plans for Colonel Qaddafi. Of course, if we peer beneath the surface, we find that the US (and its allies) are far more involved in the Libya "revolution" than it seems on the surface. In this article, we will examine US and Western involvement in the Libyan uprising – much as we have already examined participation in Egypt and Tunisa.
What is the evidence for US involvement in the overthrow of the Libyan dictator? When one lifts the curtain, an obvious portrait of involvement emerges. Pictures, for instance, have emerged of "rebels" carrying "EnoughGaddafi.com" signs. The webmaster of "EnoughGaddafi" is listed as Movements.org – and Movements.org is the network supporting the larger youth movement, with State Department encouragement.
We have written about the Alliance for Youth Movements' worldwide network – a US sponsored organization of vast proportion. Using Internet technology and organizing "youth," the US (and its vast network of intelligence operatives and mercenaries) has successfully destabilized numerous developing countries around the world and actually succeeded in creating regime change in two of them. Doubtless there will be more.
"EnoughGaddafi" material (which can be seen on Twitter) is also archived via Ibrahim Sahad's NFSL site (National Front for the Salvation of Libya). The NFSL, run by Sahad, is apparently headquartered in Washington DC and Sahad, a former captain in the Libyan army, has been making appearances from Washington where he is providing strategic guidance to the revolution. Tony Cartalucci at Land Destroyer wrote a ground-breaking article on Sahad's alliance with the US and pointed out the following:
The Sahad's NCLO began organizing the February 17th "Day of Rage" right on cue as Egypt fell so the mainstream media apparatus could swing around and put the focus on Libya. Conveniently, the media needs only move from Cairo to Egypt's western border and wait for Sahad's men on the ground to secure them a base of operations, presumably in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi. Qaddafi apparently understands the role of NGOs and the foreign media, which is why they are not in the streets of Libya's cities, and coverage has been admittedly daunting.
The pattern repeats itself. Beginning with Tunisa, and then most evidently in Egypt and now Libya, the US and its allies are firmly, tenaciously, in charge of the revolutionary process. The arrogance is breathtaking as is the cynicism. Around the world, staunch US allies – many of them dictators and murderers to be sure – now tremble at the thought that what just happened in Egypt and Tunisia may be visited upon them as well. It used to pay rather well to be a US ally. Not anymore. Hosni Mubarak's fate in particular may be troubling to erstwhile US allies, as Mubarak was as staunch a "friend" of the US and Israel as existed in the Middle East. Yet his regime was very obviously targeted by the same forces that are now at work in Libya.
This is very much an operation of the Anglosphere located primarily in the City of London, Washington DC and the Vatican – three "special cities" that are actually countries unto themselves. Those who see the fine hand of Israel and "Jews" behind all these disruptions will have to explain the dismay of Israel's leaders at the fall of Mubarak. Here's the beginning of a Reuter's story that appeared in late February:
Israel shocked by Obama's "betrayal" of Mubarak … If Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak is toppled, Israel will lose one of its very few friends in a hostile neighborhood and President Barack Obama will bear a large share of the blame, Israeli pundits said on Monday. Political commentators expressed shock at how the United States as well as its major European allies appeared to be ready to dump a staunch strategic ally of three decades … Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told ministers of the Jewish state to make no comment on the political cliffhanger in Cairo, to avoid inflaming an already explosive situation. But Israel's President Shimon Peres is not a minister. "We always have had and still have great respect for President Mubarak," he said on Monday. He then switched to the past tense. "I don't say everything that he did was right, but he did one thing which all of us are thankful to him for: he kept the peace in the Middle East."
Israel is a tool of the Anglo-American elite; the Mossad is a kind of "enforcer" (along with MI6 and the CIA), conveniently placed at the heart of the Middle East from whence all sorts of mischief can emerge and chaos can be fomented. It is apparently a kind of fiefdom of the Rothschild family, which personally paid the bills for the construction of the Knesset and the eerie Supreme Court building with all its Illuminati symbolism. Of course the Rothschild's were instrumental in the creation of Israel before and after World War II, and also helped devise various plans to frighten Jews into "returning" to Israel.
The Rothschilds it should be noted have a strong base of operations in Britain, specifically in the City of London where the strategic braintrust of the New World Order is located. It is run like a mafia family, with the Rothschilds choosing to work with other Jews just as the Italian mafia works with other Italians. The Rothschild's operations are apparently worldwide and the money that the Rothschild's and others control via central banking is virtually limitless.
From this nexus of investment and banking families has spread the plague of mercantilist central banking, which now afflicts the globe. Not content with the ruinous centralization of central banking, the Rothschild's, their allies and intelligence operatives have apparently launched a global attack on developing countries. Libya is just the latest country to receive the "treatment." Even the orchestration is deliberate, with each country falling in line, like dominoes, no two at once to ensure maximum media coverage.
America, like Israel – though to a much greater degree – is the muscular enforcer for the City of London braintrust. There is, in fact, no doubt about American involvement in orchestrating the Libyan revolution, right down to the shiny new flags that were unfurled for the cameras – red-and-green flags of a pre-revolutionary Libya that have now conveniently found their way onto flagpoles of Libyan embassies around the world. The 'flag-change' initiative was taken by the Libyan Human Rights League – another group that "spontaneously" formed in 2005 at the same time as Sahad's NFSL.
There is much hand-wringing currently in the mainstream media about how involved the US and its allies ought to get in the Libyan revolution. We would suggest that the West is already fully involved and that there are likely intelligence agents and Western mercenaries on the ground in Libya helping organize the rebels' military campaigns. While it is no doubt true that the rebels are composed of average Libyan citizens along with many deserters from the Libyan army, it is likely just as true that the groundwork for the Libyan revolution was laid well in advance – organized by the West in the same manner as the other revolutions now taking place.
These are meticulously planned events. No doubt Sahad and his allies constitute a leadership in waiting and he will fly back to Libya at the proper time. Gaddafi has proven to be a much tougher nut to crack than Mubarak or Ben Ali, and thus his emergence onto the world stage may have been put off for a while. But there is little doubt that Gaddafi's days are numbered. There is an army on the ground and it will be buttressed one way or another with Western resources.
The eventual triumph of this latest revolution, when it comes, will be hailed by the Western mainstream media as another miraculous uprising of oppressed people. There is no doubt of the heroism of those Libyans fighting and dying to free their country. But that is obviously not the whole story. And whether the West can maintain control of these revolutions, or whether many will emerge as Islamic republics is an open question. Presumably those helping with the orchestration do not care. (Perhaps they will in a sense control the Islamic republics as well.) Additional Islamic republics only buttress Western authoritarianism at home and provide the pretext for further domestic oppression.
