Libya and the End of Western Illusions

Just under half of Europeans still support the war against Libya. Their position is based on erroneous information. They still believe, in fact, that in February the “Gaddafi regime” crushed the protests in Benghazi with brutal force and bombed civilian districts in Tripoli, while the Colonel himself was warning of […]

Falsified Major Media Reports on Libya

Major media specialize in what they do best: truth inversion (aka bad fiction), not doing what journalists are supposed to do – their job, especially covering imperial wars for dominance and rich spoils. With Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) falling apart and rebel forces in disarray, today’s headlines belie the […]

Syria: the Cost of Crisis

Syria has entered the sixth month of anti-government riots, orchestrated from abroad. Protesters no longer seek moderate reforms, they aggressively demand Bashar Assad`s resignation.

This change which was initiated […]

Benghazi: Criminal Rebellion

Rebellion in Benghazi is being fomented by the mafia, controlling the traffic of “living stock” to Europe. Libyan “revolution” that seemingly started within the framework of Arab Spring happened to be a quite different matter. Given all the outward simplicity, Libyan events are different from what happened in Tunisia and […]

Libya: Absurdity Grows

For three months «no-flight zone» over Libya is being secured. Even this simple phrase, a single sentence, is enough for expressing the entire absurdity of this Middle-Eastern war. Libya is still being bombed. NATO aviation makes 50–60 operation flights a day in average, hunting the so-called military objects of Colonel […]
