Libya: Mission not Accomplished!

Blogman's Notes:

Even as Syria is feeling the full brunt of an unpopular uprising, or rather it is being destroyed by a civil war that has been instigated, financed and managed by powerful interests from well beyond its own borders, and even as Iran is pushed, shoved and cajoled into as war it does not desire; let us not forget the carnage that has been left behind by the bringers of democracy to the world, the US of A and it's NATO allies. I refer specifically to Iraq and Libya, two nations that have been bombed back to the stone age but I suppose that's a small price to pay for democracy (maybe they should practice that in China since it worked so well in Iraq and Libya)! The following Reuters report proves yet once more that these missions that are launched with such indignation and high sounding moral platitudes by the West never accomplish their stated goal of bringing democracy to any of the nations that were thus bombed and conquered; and democracy is always exported to weak nations that cannot defend themselves, nations that are not worthy of being called enemies of the greatest military machine the world has ever seen. The whole idea of bring democracy through bombs is so insidious that it is only a populace kept entertained by the kool-aid of mass - media that can believe such a ludicrous concept. However the supposed beneficiaries of such democracy bringing missions are in fact victims of war crimes perpetrated openly by lying hypocrites who call themselves philanthropists. Militaries of all nations, particularly that of the most militarily active nation on Earth (guess which one) are mass murders and will be thus judged on the Day of Judgment, both the ones who gave the orders and the ones who execute the orders. It grieves God to see such violence inflicted upon weak and defenseless people, and though He is patient, unwilling to pass judgment, hoping for repentance, hoping to see compassion and love; yet there is a limit to His patience and to His Longsuffering. Sooner now, rather than later, judgment will come and weak man, made out of clay will find out that how weak and impotent he really is in front of Him who upholds the Universe by the power of His Might. 

Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Genesis 6:6 .And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Genesis 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

Folks, it is the Military machine that fills the earth with violence in multiples of degrees greater than violence inflicted upon individuals by each other. In the most violent cities in the world, there may be a few hundred murders every year but Militaries murder people by the hundreds of thousands, even millions, yet the Military is considered to be an honorable profession! Killing and violence comes naturally to man, and though the All Wise LORD God understood beforehand that His Creation would be filled with violence for a period of time, He deemed it necessary to allow it to happen but that does not mean that He will not judge the perpetrators, yes He will and He will do so in righteousness; His Judgment will not be corrupt, it will be just. 

James 5:9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

REUTERS: Saadi Gaddafi warns of uprising in Libya: TV

(Reuters) - Muammar Gaddafi's son Saadi warned on Friday of an imminent uprising in Libya, saying he was in regular contact with people in the country who were unhappy with the authorities put in place after the ousting and killing of his father.

Speaking to Al-Arabiya television by phone - the first time he has spoken publicly in months - Saadi said he wanted to return to Libya "at any minute" after escaping across the border to Niger when National Transitional Council forces captured the capital Tripoli in August.

He said he was in contact from Niger with the army, the militias, the NTC and other members of the Gaddafi family. It was impossible to verify where he was calling from as the station showed only an old still picture of Saadi as a backdrop to his words.

"First of all, it is not going to be an uprising limited to some areas. It will cover all the regions of the Jamahiriya and this uprising does exist and I am following and witnessing this as it grows bigger by the day," he said, referring to Libya.

"There will be a great uprising in the south, in the east, in the centre and in the west. All the regions of Libya will witness this new popular uprising."

A transitional government appointed in November is leading the country to elections in June but is struggling to restore services and impose order on myriad armed groups.

These groups fought hard in the campaign to topple Gaddafi but still refuse to hand in their weapons.

The government lost control of the former Gaddafi stronghold of Bani Walid last month after local people staged an armed revolt, posing the gravest challenge yet to the NTC's authority.

However elders in the desert city dismissed accusations they wanted to restore the late dictator's family to power or had any ambitions beyond their local area.

Saadi told Al-Arabiya: "The Libyan people should revolt against these militias and against this deteriorating situation. The NTC is not a legitimate body ... and is not in control of the militias," he added. "We call on all to be ready for the coming uprising."

"We have to exert pressure to change this situation and to remove this evil doing that exists in Libya. We do not know any such thing as elections. We are a Muslim nation," he said.


Government officials were not immediately available for comment. Mohammed al-Alagy, former interim justice minister and who now heads the human rights council, told Al-Arabiya Saadi's comments were "an attempt to drive a wedge between the Libyan people."

Saadi, a businessman and former professional footballer, said he was in contact with people in Libya. Interpol last year issued a "red notice" requesting member states to arrest Saadi with a view to extradition if they find him in their territory.

"I have daily communications with Libya from Niger and these contacts are not just to start the uprising but also to follow up the status of our tribes, our relatives and the people," he said.

"The situation of the people is deteriorating. I am in contact with the militias, the tribes, the NTC and the national army. I can confirm that more than 70 percent of those who are in Libya now whether they support the February 17th (revolution) or not, all are not satisfied with the situation and are ready to cooperate to change this situation."

Libya is preparing for the first anniversary of the start of the February 17 uprising which began in the eastern city of Benghazi. Libyan armed forces chief Yousef al-Mangoush this week said there were concerns for potential sabotage of the anniversary by Gaddafi loyalists.

"A large number of February 17th members do regret this and we are now in full cooperation with the February 17th and our supporters to change this deteriorating situation," Saadi said. "As for my return, yes I must return to Libya and this will happen at any minute. If I do return I will prevent any revenge."

Saadi said he was also in contact with his family members. Gaddafi's wife Safiya, his daughter Aisha and his sons Mohammed and Hannibal fled to Algeria in August. Saadi's brother Saif al-Islam was captured in the Sahara desert in November and is now being held in the town of Zintan.

"I am in contact with my family inside and outside Libya and in the neighboring countries and in Europe," Saadi said.

"I call on all the elders, the youth, the militias and the tribes to come and to sit with each other and to negotiate with each other and to come up with a true reconciliation."

Mexican authorities said in December they had uncovered and stopped an international plot to smuggle Saadi into the country using fake names and false papers.
