Gaddafi To "Give Ceasefire A Chance" - Accepts Undetermined "Roadmap To Peace"; Oil Dips To Be Savagely Bought

Tyler Durden's picture


It almost seems like it was yesterday that Hugo Chavez was threatening to steal Obama's peace prize from under the president nose, when one dictator seemed on the verge of ending another dictator's multi-decade rule. But not really. And since nobody remembers that fable any more, it is time to come up with a new rehash on a common theme. Per Reuters, "Muammar Gaddafi has accepted a roadmap for ending the conflict in Libya, South African President Jacob Zuma said on Sunday after leading a delegation of African leaders at talks in Tripoli." Good thing Zuma has so much more credibility in the international community than Chavez. Or else people may see through yet another attempt at push oil prices lower for a day or two while the big boys load up, only for the rumor to dissipate in a day or so. "Zuma, who with four other African heads of state met Gaddafi for several hours at the Libyan leader's Bab al-Aziziyah compound, also called on NATO to stop air strikes on Libyan government targets to "give a ceasefire a chance."" We are not positive, but something tells us the Beatles are about to get an asston of royalties on that particular phrase. And just in case there is no confusion about just what this "roadmap" entails, there damn well should be. "No one at the talks gave details of what was contained in the roadmap. Anti-Gaddafi rebels have said they will accept nothing less than an end to Gaddafi's four decades in power, but Libyan officials say he will not step down." So no actual details, but please sell Brent or else Goldman won't be able to load up. Is that about the gist of it?

More from Reuters:

 "I have some commitment which is compelling me to leave now but we have completed our mission with the brother leader (Gaddafi)," Zuma said after the talks.

Apparently Zuma, after extensive deliberations with the guy with the headdress, has realized how important it is to move his gold stash from point A to point B post haste.

"The brother leader delegation has accepted the roadmap as presented by us. We have to give ceasefire a chance," he said.

"The delegation ... will be proceeding tomorrow to meet the other party, to talk to everybody and present a political solution to the problem in Libya."

"We also in this communique (adopted at the talks on Sunday) are making a call on NATO to cease the bombings to allow and to give a ceasefire a chance."

"My colleagues remain in Tripoli and tomorrow will go to Benghazi," to meet the rebel leadership, Zuma said.

In other news, expect everyone to BTFD in brent and crude.

Despite Daffy's ambitions with a potential road map to peace in hand and the possibility of a leprachauns prize at the end of his looting rainbow ars I still stand by my original impression: "He's finished!!!"

lol!  yer on, mofo!  slewie's had $20 on moQ @ 11-to-4, no less, since that shitforbrained french prez sarkozy went psycho-CIA/UN/NWO and decided to "lead" a "coalition" against this amazing, completely insane, libyan strongman who had a bit of a prob with the fukin moslem brotherhood, see? 

how can my cockroach still even be alive?  lol!  this is his turf, dude, & it's no africa, dude, and it's prob getting pretty hot, there, too, dude, mid april, and those "boots-on-the-ground" moronic goons who go to die for the banksters, their intel agencies, and the enslavement of all real people under the NWO, certainly are entitled to be be thoroughly fuking pissed on, too, dude, no matter whose little flag is sewn on their soon-to-be-dismembered & dessicated arms, dude. 

sorry to disagree with yer original "impression"  but when do you begin to reason and contemplate something other than yer 1st, delicious taste of this now-nefarious propaganda? huh?

why not just let the fukin dictator and his armies fight it out with the agents of the revolutionary "brotherhood"?  b/c moQ might easlily "win"? 

personally, i see absolutely no reason on earth for anyone else's nose to get into this sordid business, and no, i don't give a flying fuk what you, sarkozy, bilary, pres milk dud and the members of the UN S Council who weren't smart enuf to abstain from this outrageous set-up, think, either,...dude...

Typical fiat cease fire so supplies of arms and ammunition can be brought up to the front unmolested. They use the same old play book and the other side never reads it. Expect a lull of a few days and then a big push to finish off the rebels before Obama can react.

Absolutely, Gaddafi is a sly old fox who has been in power for a long time his troopps will continue to kill during a cease fire or at least rearm and reform.

"we have completed our mission with the brother leader (Gaddafi)"    brother leader??? more like one despot to another.

"tomorrow to meet the other party"    not even a title for them!!!

"and present a political solution"   not even a discussion or fact finding but here's the solution!!

Ok, time for those French troops in the Ivory Coast to redeploy and take out Gaddafi then leave.

Fed tightening does not end a crude run.  Destruction of demand does -- assuming you think Fed tightening can do that . . . in China.

Get it through your heads.  Oil is getting more scarce and China and India MUST have more of it.  There is no way around this.

good Question! Tex & others, wrong?  if only till they're NWO "right"?  Hahaha!

maybe moQ really would like the "coalition" to re-consider wtf they are up to, eh?  even if he'd never respect a white flag or a checkered one, either!  these hot-shot brainiacs think when they have a "reason" for a war of aggression, that means it's always a swell idea!

embarrassing that someone of Tex's experience and smarts can't see that "little glitch" in their frankly murderous, criminal thought, there, isn't it?  moQ is "bad" so this is a good idea?  it doesn't matter who winsthat is fukin insane! 

this is a war, people, another war!  the fact that you have been conditioned to think of it as a show or a sporting event, and can't think straight about the real act of invading fukin libya b/c of a intermural tiff + NWO oil greed + lawless aggression, where you think moQ is the "bad" guy b/c fukin sarkozy & the MSM say so, is, really, kinda sad, i think.

Au contraire. It's a smart move. Mr. Q now has an Africa wide backed ceasfire proposal.

UN/Rockefeller does NOT want a ceasefire.  Most likely scenario, the UN will not accept a ceasefire, this will bring MORE countries on Mr. Q's side.

The UN has gotten itself into a mess it can't get out of without crumbling to bits.

It is now MORE obvious that the UN is a farce.

BTW, the UN had been negotiationg with China it's relocation to chinese soil.

Those negotiations just went up in smoke when the whole Libya adventure began.

The clusterfuck underneath a joint French/English political oversight committee with directiable influence upon the American Admiral who runs NATO who took over from the American General who oversaw the original French/English led politically engaged committee which included the Germans who already left citing way too much leadership confusion while being scared off by the Dutch who had a collective subdural hematoma when one of their military leaders told the parliament that they might take casualties which was augmented by two (2) jets from the UAE/Qatar/wherever before the rebels painted their tanks pink so the Christian Crusading Kafirs don't kill them, too, by mistake.

Is that the clusterfuck to which you refer or did I miss another joint press release?

That's odd news.  Gaddafi's minister of something was on the air Friday saying that they have observed a cease fire from the very beginning, before the air strikes.  He said the only time they shoot is when they are shot at.  Which I totally believe - why would he lie, right?  Those aren't really tanks roaming the streets of the cities blowing away everything in sight, those aren't artillary and motar shells falling, it's clearly the rebels driving, loading and firing those things, shooting at themselves.

The rebels should stop immediately and form a big circle, sing kumbaya, We Are the World, and Give Peace a chance while smoking more hashish.

It's simple.  What's the holdup?

From Wiki: "Give Peace a Chance" is a song written by John Lennon, originally under the moniker Lennon/McCartney, released as a single in 1969 by the Plastic Ono Band on Apple Records, catalogue Apple 13 in the UK, Apple 1809 in the US. It is the first solo single issued by Lennon, and became an anthem of the American anti-war movement during the 1970s. It peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on the British singles chart.

I'm pretty sure cops aren't allowed to have a sense of humor anymore.

Although it is ironic (but not humorous) that it's original context, giving peace a chance didn't end up working out all that well for many Vietnamese and Cambodians.

There's no substitute for a catchy tag-line I guess.

Tyler is right.  BTD.  I doubt it's coming as Egypt and other areas keep heating up.  We could be near the beginning of WWIII.  China has a lot of investments in Africa and we are essentially controlling lots of area around their trading partners.  They also have a rumored aircraft carrier buster and their own aircraft carrier being refurished.

The price of oil and silver is going to be hard to manipulate downward with all the tension and money printing.  Gold prices might or is actually being held back.  How?  The Central Banks by selling their reserves and/or (if the rumors that were out late 2009 are true,) many bars of gold are filled with tungsten. Central banks don't want gold to be a huge alternative currency as it ruins their credit control over the world.

The real war is who controls the money.  The central banks are losing control hence the Bretton Woods II meeting with the whose who in the financial markets and all the lobbying efforts to have broke countries pay their member bank's gambling debts.

"The price of oil and silver is going to be hard to manipulate downward "

Silver is already being manipulated downward (relatively unsuccessfully since Meister Keiser stepped into the ring)! Oil is being manipulated upward, so it won't be hard for them to manipulate it back down again ... it's not a good bet to stay long on something that is being pushed higher than demand warrants.

Anyone who is betting on this ceasefire lasting is a total plum.

...and yet the fall in the oil price today indicates that there are plenty of plums about.

Who is brave enough to short oil?

$20 more and we're going back into 'worldwide economic crisis' - just as the people were getting over the last one.

....turns out Marx was right, the crises will become more and mroe extreme and more and more frequent as Capitalism makes it's final death throes.

P.s. Zerohedge - can't you make the CAPTCHA a bit easier? I've got *** times (-39) equals -1443

I just realised the irony in this peace effort.


Are they using the same 'roadmap' that the Palestinians and Israel have been using?


If so then I would suggest changing it to a new one - it's out of date and all the roads point to Israel anyway. This idea that a peace can be brokered is about as sensible as thinking that peace can be achieved by bombing.


How long before we overthrow the clowns who are supposed to be running our countries? This is getting more and more ridiculous and people are continuing to profit from others' misery.
