Libyan government officials say they have declared a ceasefire. Libyan rebels say the ceasefire is a hoax. The Western military industrial establishment says it will send fighter jets anyway.
The propaganda is already flying in every direction.
The media is repeating totally unsourced stories that Gaddafi is “collecting bodies” of people killed in attacks his forces are still carrying out and that he plans to place them in strategic military locations so he can blame civilian deaths on UN sanctioned air strikes.
Iraqi incubator babies, WMDs, serbian death camps and non existent air strikes spring immediately to mind.
Entire reports are being written, many of them based purely on twitter comments and a Youtube video (below), claiming that while it is claiming to have instigated a ceasefire, the Libyan government is still indiscriminately shelling rebel held areas.
Rebels say that Gaddafi is bluffing and that government forces have been bombing the city of Misurata since yesterday evening, while the government insists that the ceasefire is already under way, and that no military attacks have been launched in Misurata or anywhere elsewhere today.
A government spokesman told Reuters, “We don’t know who to reach at the UN Security Council to work out the technicalities of the ceasefire. That is the problem at the moment which we are trying to resolve.”
The spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, has told the London Telegraph reporter Richard Spencer that the Libyan government has asked the Maltese and Turkish governments to oversee the ceasefire, sending personnel on the ground if they see fit and is awaiting their response, adding that “it cannot be just a one-sided ceasefire,” demanding that that UN provide an intermediary to hold discussions.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is telling the media that she is “not impressed” with the words of the Libyan government.
So, who do you believe? On one side you have a crazy but brutal tinpot dictator, on the other a war hungry neo-colonial global establishment hell bent on expanding its domination of energy rich and politically strategic regions of the planet.
Unfortunately it simply doesn’t matter anymore, either way the people of Libya and the free world still lose.
What started as an uprising of humanity shaking off the shackles of oppression and could have ended in an global expansion of consciousness has once again been strangled in its infancy and completely bastardized by those who live to dominate and dominate to live.
Ask yourself, who is this new war coalition supposed to be protecting? Why do our elites suddenly give a damn about Libyan rebels when for decades they have been openly selling arms to Gaddafi’s regime.
Of course they could give less of a damn about Gaddafi either, our governments have attempted to remove him from power multiple times, even employing the likes Osama Bin Laden to carry out the dirty work.
The Anglo-American establishment, the neo-colonialist elite, the globalist military industrial complex, the new world order – give it whatever fancy dan, wordy or downright kooky name you like – it’s still right outside your door and its still demonically intent on firing death, hate and destruction at anyone or anything that opposes its unequivocal, unconditional and unmitigated global domination.
However, this seemingly unending cycle is wearing thin, every time it is played out more and more people are waking up to reality, discovering who their real enemies are and what they must do if they are to forge any form of fruitful future for their children and their children’s children.
With every illegal, despicable war in which it engages it grows weaker and only speeds its own downfall.
