Germany Sends Three Warships To Libya

Tyler Durden's picture

As we pointed out yesterday, while the US navy is seriously starting to amass in the Persian Gulf region, it has left the Mediterranean and more importantly, the Libyan coastline unguarded. With concerns that Gaddafi will follow through with what we speculated on Monday was a Saddam-like "after me the flood" act and burn his oil facilities, this may not be the most prudent thing. Luckily, here comes Germany. According to Spiegel, Germany has sent three warships to Libya which may possibly get involved in a "military engagement."


The German Navy has sent three ships of the operations and training association in 2011 in the maritime area between Malta and the Libyan coast.

The Spiegel Online reports akutell. The three ships are the supplier "Berlin" and the frigate 'Brandenburg and Rheinland-Pfalz. "Overall, the ships will have about 600 soldiers on board.

As Spiegel Online report on the EU takes in an emergency, a military engagement in Libya considered. The news magazine refers back to an unnamed diplomats.

I am still waiting for the German Navy to show up at the Israeli doorstep to claim back the fraudulent 'Holocaust' reparations

I'm quite partial to Deutschland myself, they need to leave the Euro and let the frogs wallow in their own existential incompetence...only people on the continent worth a damn these days sit between the Rhine and the Oder...FYI

Don't hold your breath, will never happen. Germanies ruling "elite" is so devote, they would never to anything that looks tought to other countries - out of fear we might be the bad guys again.

interesting take here by the Prez of Israel, saying large tech companies should take up more responsibility for the situation in the Middle East!:

US troops won't have to fire on US citizens.  We'll just let the Canadians do it, and vice versa.  Just another patch in the matrix.

Are they expecting something to occur in the next few weeks? What was the purpose of pushing this bill through so swiftly?

Call me a skeptic, but something smells like never before.

Confused's picture

Yeah, thats really quite astonishing.


Smells indeed. 

Oh regional Indian's picture

Shocking jus... nice links all around...I followed the Philly Church story... it's all happening.

And this concentration of ships in the Gulf region in general has some pretty crazy "potential" stories associated. I'm sure everyone has heard about the Stargate in the Gulf of Aden? If not, maybe time to get acquainted eh?

Something big is brewing for sure. The mix is as potent as it is surreal.

Remember, today is 666 days from 21-12-2012...

What's the real scoop on recent unrest in India?  Something substantial brewing, or MSM hype?

Oh regional Indian's picture

Colnel, India has been recently tested (I'm totally serious) with 2$ a Kg. Onion. That is huge, 5 years ago, governments would have collapsed. Now prices trending down, but it was a totally manipulated price rise.

Also, a whole lot seperationist movements are creating trouble (mostly Maoist, chinese or outside influence funded).

And the political sphere is a huge mess with a lot of scams coming to surface, scapegoating etc.

So, while lot's of local MSM hyping about shining, success etc. reality on the ground is just the opposite.


My take on India, in case of interest:

ColonelCooper's picture

Thanks, ORI.  I did read your blog post, and while I may disagree with your view (as inferred) of capitalism, I totally agree with your dismay at the outcome.  It seems to be universal, that with every gain in comfort, there is a loss of understanding as to what's really important in life.  The line between want and need has been obliterated.  It was a slow transformation, but unfortunately, the learning curve is going to be much steeper on the way back down.  Soon.

Good luck to you, ORI.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Good luck to you too and all around CC. We'e all going to need a good dose of it and a clear head to thrive what is coming. If it's just survive.....don't know. :-)


ColonelCooper's picture

I think you hit the nail on the head.  Thrive and survive are not too far apart.  "Comfort" is relative.  Maybe if people would turn off the TV and hold their kids in their laps...  Maybe if people would skip going out to eat and enjoy a simple meal at their own table...   Nurture a garden with the effort they put into polishing their new (financed) car...  Turn off the Ipod and listen to their child butcher a song on the piano...  Maybe if....

The best things in life ARE free. At least in terms of whatever fiat currency they currently worship. 

Oh regional Indian's picture

Absolutely! Well said all around...

This is just a continuation of the NAU, or North American Union.

Nothing to see here, just loss of sovereignty on both sides.

Everyone move on.

Of course folks, don't get scared when we sign the same agreement with Mexico, then you know you've lost your citizenship, and have become a serf of the NAU.

Never happen, I can't see people from either country going along with this. 

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

The Stockholm Syndrome is especially strong in the military. Always assume troops will fire on civilians because history shows that troops have and will fire upon civilians.

It is our own denial that supports the myth that they won't.

jus_lite_reading's picture

As I posted yesterday, my brother in law who is a Green Beret said very openly, they were trained (read: conditioned, brainwashed) to kill on demand and even if that meant killing US citizens, a whole town indeed, they would obey on command. Those are his words that haunt me everyday.


AnAnonymous's picture

A good commando knows only three things: kill, kill and kill.

Rodent Freikorps's picture

Pardon me if I call Bullshit on that. The Special Forces are the smartest, most dedicated forces on the face of the Earth.

They would also frag the officer who ordered them to kill innocent US civilians.

Frag them dead, and not even bury the corpse.

pazmaker's picture

Special Forces or Green Berets I don't think would do that, that is not their mission.

Army Rangers(tan Beret)  (used to be black beret until the army switched all soldiers over to berets) mission is to kill kill kill not the Special Forces.


So while I agree with you Rodent that Special Forces would not do this, basically they wouldn't be assigned to do this as it is not their specialty,   The task would be assigned to 11bravos   marines and Army Rangers

Rodent Freikorps's picture

I do know these people. They will only kill you if you point a weapon at them. But so would I.

armed personal, going house to house... in this Country? that would be a bad thing for all involved. no one here wants to say it, but I will.

What the holly trinity do you mean, something like this?...

Rodent Freikorps's picture

You do realize that if the military in used InConus, they will be responding to an earth shattering event. It is possible they really will be only interested in restoring order.

Don't make them shoot you if that is all that is happening.

Buy an eleven bravo a drink and see if you can hold on to your misinformed stupid.

The typical 11B in the 82nd is a completely different animal then Special Forces and in my opinion would be prone to obey orders to shoot especially if there are armed civilians staring back at them.

I don't know if you were talking to me or axmeel, but I was agreeing with you on the Special Forces.  I too also served and specifically with the XVII Airborne Corp Fort Bragg  Dragon Brigade.


Ahmeexnal's picture

It is you who should be informed. Special forces murdered innocent men, women an children in Waco.

Rodent Freikorps's picture


They do not honor their oath.

Rodent Freikorps's picture

The worst "claim" out there is that a whole two Deltas were present. Wow.

JW n FL's picture

what we all should learn from Waco...

1. The Government does NOT have your best interests at heart and Lies about it every chance they get.


2. Law Enforcement will LIE and Shoot into your House with Children inside.


3. They (being the Government and Law Enforcement) will use Tanks on thier own women and children.


Case closed, get some big heavy stuff and shoot fucking back, or die like a pussy... the choice is yours.

***** If you dont have something big enough to defend yourself from certain death, steal it. *****

This Country was founded on hit and run tactics... it was founded on Taxation (QE Infinitum) without representation... nothing new here.

Law Enforcement will want thier food stamps first, so they will fire on whomever says fire on whenever they say fire as well.

No one is perfect, but I didnt sware and oath to protect the people... put on a badge... and then murder children... and thier excuse was... they were armed as well as us? so we need a tank? fuck that, fuck them.. when it first happened... I didnt think much of it, now a days... it is what is to come for all of us.
