At the onset of America’s invasion of Afghanistan, former US vice President Dick Cheney was quoted as saying the Third World War has already began. Many at that time felt it was the usual American political talk but events subsequently have proved that the US agenda is to remove any national leader who is not ready to handover his natural resources to the Americans.

A cursory look at the list of countries that have either been invaded or puppets placed in power to do the American will is getting longer by the day. From Iraq to Afghanistan, Egypt and Tunisia, the imperialists have now brought the war to the African continent and Libya is the first stop in long campaign that will ensure that patriotic leaders are removed from power through any means possible.

Now it is Colonel Muammar Qaddafi’s Libya that has been invaded by so-called Western democracies who are using surrogate fighters recruited from such infamous and murderous groups as al-qaida in Afghanistan, and those detained in Guantanamo Bay and the eastern European jails to come and kill our African brothers and sisters.

This determination to either kill the Libyan leader or split the country into two is being done under the thin veneer of a purported UN Security Council resolution that has imposed a no-fly zone on the country. What these so-called teachers and defenders of democracy have however forgotten is that the Security Council is not authorized, according to the UN Charter, to intervene in the internal affairs of any country, and any attempt to do so using any kind of reason will be the legalization of injustice and aggression which will undoubtedly have grave consequences not only for the Middle East but Europe and Africa as a whole.

The so-called no fly zone is a very hypocritical position taken by the world body. This shocking attitude which was promoted by the Arab League to ‘protect the protestors’ from government military attacks is at variance with the Saudi Army’s role in Bahrain which has been ruled by the al-Khalifa dynasty for more than 200 years. In that country, peaceful protests are being broken up through the use of brutal and naked force by the ‘police’ sent by another home of usurper tyranny, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with Saudi troops providing the muscle to commit this infamy with impunity .

These acts of genocide have not attracted the attention of the world body that is consumed with an anti-Qaddafi agenda.

In Libya, an armed insurrection against a legitimate government is on. In all logical situations, a sitting government is to be aided to beat back an invading force but in this case, the opposite is the case as the world is bent on ending the legitimacy of the Libyan leader.

From Washington we have heard Barak Obama thunder that Libya should hand over the territories it has seized from the hired goons. This statement looked at critically means Libya must be divided into two, one for the imperialists and the other for Libyans, an unheard of case in the world.

The hypocrisy and double standards being exhibited is shocking. U.S. President Obama is warning Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi that his forces must stop attacking innocent civilians or face military action. And that military action is what the world will soon see as the B-52 bombers thunder from their bases loaded with weapons of destruction aimed at Libyans will soon be on their way from their bases in Italy and the various aircraft carriers scattered in the Mediterranean to cause mayhem in Libya.

NATO countries have begun moving planes and other military assets closer to Libya to enforce the so-called U.N. Security Council resolution.

The bombing of Libya will begin on or nearly to the day, of the eighth anniversary of the beginning of the destruction of Iraq, 20th March. Libya too will be destroyed - its schools, education system, water, infrastructure, hospitals, municipal buildings and electricity. There will be numerous "tragic mistakes", "collateral damage", mothers, fathers, children, babies, grandparents, blind and deaf schools and on and on bombed. And the wonders of the Roman remains and earlier, largely enduring and revered in all history's turmoils as Iraq, the nation's history - and humanity's, again as in Iraq and in Afghanistan, will be gone, for ever.

The infrastructure will be destroyed. The embargo will remain in place, thus rebuilding will be impossible. Britain, France and the US will decide the country needs "stabilising", "help with reconstruction." They will move in, secure the oil installations and oil fields, the Libyan people will be an incidental inconvenience and quickly become "the enemy", "insurgents", be shot, imprisoned, tortured, abused - and a US friendly puppet "government" will be installed.

The invaders will award their companies rebuilding contracts, the money - likely taken from Libya's frozen assets without accounting - will vanish and the country will remain largely in ruins.

And the loudest cheerleaders for this, as in Iraq, will be running round TV and radio stations in the UK, Europe and the US, then returning to their safe apartments and their UK/US/Europe paid tenures, in the knowledge that no bombs will be dropping on them. Their children will not be shaking uncontrollably and soiling themselves with terror at the sound of approaching planes. The media, as usual will trumpet how these murderous gangs from the Western world are good for the Libyans as their actions are meant to bring democracy, and free Libyans from a ‘bloodthirsty tyrant’, from the "new Hitler" or the "Butcher of Bengazi, as they have already started calling him.
With time the truth will be known but by then Libya will be broken and its people, fleeing, displaced, distraught will be sent back to the stone age while diseases long forgotten will rear their ugly head. Deformed babies will be born as they and their mothers are exposed to the dum-dum and bunker bursting shells manufactured from depleted uranium.

The most shocking aspect of this is the silence of individual African governments and the African Union in general over the invasion of a sister nation who is also member of the AU. It was criminal on the part of Nigeria, Gabon and most notably South Africa to have voted along with the likes of France, Great Britain and the US to impose the no-fly zone on Libya.

So soon South Africa has forgotten that at the height of the anti-apartheid struggle these countries that it has joined today to destabilize Libya were in cahoots with the apartheid regime to deny Africans the right to self-determination. It has also forgotten that Libya was one of the few countries that devoted its resources to the South African liberation struggle just to ensure that the obnoxious white supremacist regime was done away with. The thanks Qaddafi has received from Jacob Zuma is that the dogs of war must be let loose on the people of Libya so that Washington again holds sway over that country.

The bottom line to all these is that there is a racist agenda afoot and African leaders cannot see it. Ban Ki Moon has never shown any love to Africans since his days as South Korea’s foreign minister. By pushing through this racist agenda, he is just doing what he knows best – Africans must be enslaved again and one way to start this is to replace the patriotic leaders with puppets.

Having succeeded so far, nothing will stop Washington and the dogs of war from invading other African countries if Africans do not stand up and speak with one voice against this 21st re-colonisation of the continent.

Intelligence reports at our disposal suggest that there is a grand agenda in place to re-conquer the world and impose puppet leaders. From Libya, the next target is Syria, then Algeria and eventually the Islamic Republic of Iran whose resources the Americans and Zionist government of Israel have always coveted since the dawn of time.

Having achieved the regime change agenda in the Middle East, the next target will be the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela whose oil Hugo Chavez has ensured will benefit only his citizens instead of some so-called defenders of democracy and good governance sitting in London, New York, Paris and Washington to be followed by the old foe – Cuba. These will be followed by the invasion of North Korea, Ecuador, Bolivia and Eritrea among others in quick succession.

What lovers of democracy, freedom and justice however have always asked: When will NATO enforce the various UN resolutions on Israel so that the Palestinians, owners of the land can also have a homeland? When will NATO force Israel to lift the siege on the West Bank which is a huge concentration camp being operated by the bloodthirsty Zionist regime in the Middle East?

While we await the final word from the African Union, we urge all Africans, wherever they are to picket their governments to make a statement on the impending invasion of Libya. This is the time for Africans to show that they are ready to face the future with a renewed strength and confidence that they cannot be pushed around anymore. Enough is enough

Long live Libya,

Long live Brother Muammar Qaddafi,

Long live the Great Al-Fateh Revolution

This is just the beginning of UN enforced imperialism on small sovereign countries. Could Fidel Castro be next? I can see the CIA fomenting trouble among anti-Castroites, followed by US-France invasion. That US-France axis was the force that overthrew Aristide. How come the UN led by France, Britain and the US did not impose a no-fly zone on Israel's bombing of innocent civilians in Gaza and Lebanon? 
Thank you Comfort Boahene for setting the record straight. There have been some feeble comments opposing you on here. But the most depressing thing of all is the support of this barbarous imperialist act from persons on this list whom I respected. They have bought the western propaganda. hook, line and sinker. 
The US has killed over a million in Iraq. I wonder how much they will now kill in Libya.

From Revolution Online: March 18, 2011
LIBYA. With the U.S. once again involving itself in militarily attacking yet another country, ask yourself:  Which country in the world, from its beginnings to the present time, has the bloodiest history of genocide, slavery, invasions, coups, installing and backing brutal regimes, bombings, massacres and mass destruction, including the use of nuclear weapons? And which government imprisons its own people and in particular its minorities at the highest rate in the world?

No good can come from U.S. imperialist intervention of any kind.

    Betrayal at 1600:
    America's 1st Black President Invades Africa
    Over the objection of the African Union, US attacks Libya

    By Don DeBar

    NEW YORK - In a move reminiscent of Senator Mike Mansfield's observation that "Only a Nixon could go to China," President Barack Obama has begun a military invasion of Africa.

    For those unaware, Libya is in Africa.

    Ignoring the call of the African Union - the regional organization having jurisdiction which counts every African nation save Morocco among its members - and channeling the political ghost of George W. Bush on the eighth anniversary of the "Shock and Awe" attack on Iraq, "America's First Black President" ordered the launch of some 110 Tomahawk missiles on Libya Saturday, killing an unknown number of Africans for oil.

    According to various media sources, Libyan authorities reported that 48 people were killed and more than 150 injured, most of them civilians, and that the missiles hit civilian targets, among them a hospital in Tripoli, in an attack that Obama claimed was intended to protect civilians from the Libyan government.

    At present, as we saw during "Shock and Awe" and have seen pretty much every day since, the mainstream media tell the same story, if in different words - that Gadaffi is crazy, that he's a brutal dictator, that this is not about oil, and that we will be in and out quickly. And this time again, as in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq (and more recently in Cote D'Ivoire), we have seen the so-called progressive media pile on in the demonization of the leadership that is a prerequisite to progressive acquiescence, if not outright acceptance, of imperial intervention.
    However, facts are pesky little buggers, and have - and will - give the lie to the best conducted campaigns of obfuscation and misdirection, over time.

    One example - do we still believe that the Iraqi people want to give us flowers for bombing, and then invading, invading their country - particularly after we had starved it for a decade prior?

    Meanwhile one wonders here in New York how a former Senator from this state who helped sell the Iraq debacle and lost the presidency as a consequence is now apparently making war policy for the White House over the objections of the Secretary of Defense. Could it be that elections here matter as little as they are claimed to in those varied places around the globe that await our enlightened intervention?

    One thing for certain - once again, the symbolism of the first-strike attack couldn't tell the story more clearly. The Tomahawk missile barrage features a weapon ostensibly named after a weapon of self-defense by the original inhabitants of this continent. To those who value truth, however, it is known that, in the first act of nation-building by the bearers of the missiles, those original peoples suffered a genocide at the hands of these purported freedom-lovers so complete that it lacks historical analogy before or since. That these weapons are now being used on the people of Africa - the second stop for genocide in the building of that nation of hypocrites - simply makes the point for those too blind to see it in the first case.
