Libyan Protesters Hang Two Policemen In Al Baida, As Sermons Urge Locals To Ignore "Imperialist, Zionist" Attempts To Stir Revolution

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Just headlines for now, but unfortunately the escalation in Bahrain has now spread, as anticipated, to cities in Libya. Dow Jones reports that Libyan protesters have hung two policemen in Al Baida. We will bring more when we see it, but we expect reprisals by the authorities to be harsh and prompt. In addition, in a country that has far less infrastructure than Egypt, and where mass communication and organization is more problematic, protesters have managed to capture a radio station, whose live transmission can be heard streaming here. And while Tripoli has so far not seen the violence of Cairo, the same can not be said for Libya's second largest city. Per Reuters: "Soldiers sought to put down unrest in Libya's second city on Friday and opposition forces said they were fighting troops for control of a nearby town after crackdowns which Human Rights Watch said killed 24 people. Opponents of Gaddafi had designated Thursday a
day of rage to try to emulate uprisings sweeping through North Africa
and the Middle East. Unrest continued well into the night." We are surprised that Hillary Clinton has not yet issued a statement requesting that all Libyan, Bahraini, Iranian, and now Djiboutian protesters peacefully disperse and go their home and iPads.

From Reuters:

U.S. President Barack Obama said he was "deeply concerned" about reports of violence from Bahrain, a close U.S. ally, Libya and Yemen and urged governments to show restraint in dealing with protesters.

The demonstrations have been focused in the country's east, including its second largest city, Benghazi, where support for Gaddafi has been historically weaker than in the rest of the country. The area is largely cut-off from international media.

"Last night was very hard, there were a lot of people in the street, thousands of people. I saw soldiers in the street," a resident who lives on Benghazi's main thoroughfare, Nasser Street, told Reuters.

"I heard shooting. I saw one person fall down (from a gunshot wound) but I don't have a figure for casualties."

The privately-owned Quryna newspaper, based in Benghazi, said security forces overnight fired live bullets at protesters, killing 14 of them. It published photographs of several people lying on hospital stretchers with bloodstained bandages.

Two Swiss-based exile groups said anti-government forces, joined by defecting police, were battling with security forces for control of the town of Al Bayda, 200 km (125 miles) northeast of Benghazi and scene of deadly clashes this week.

A opposition activist in Al Bayda told Reuters the town was calm after the burial of 14 people killed in Thursday's protests. "A massacre took place here yesterday," said the man. The death toll he gave could not be verified.

Ashour Shamis, a London-based Libyan journalist, said protesters had stormed Benghazi's Kuwafiyah prison on Friday and freed dozens of political prisoners. Quryna said 1,000 prisoners had escaped and 150 had been recaptured.

Tripoli, which has for now been spared, may be the next to fall:

The capital Tripoli has been calmer, with Gaddafi supporters staging demonstrations of their own. The leader appeared in the early hours of Friday briefly at Green Square in the center of Tripoli, surrounded by crowds of supporters. He did not speak.

A sermon at Friday prayers in Tripoli, broadcast on state television, urged people to ignore reports in foreign media "which doesn't want our country to be peaceful, which ... is the aim of Zionism and imperialism, to divide our country."

Gaddafi's opponents, using social media networks Facebook and Twitter, had called for new protests after Friday prayers, when most Libyan men visit the mosque.

The Libyan government, instead of paying citizens like its wealthier gulf country neighbors, is instead sending text messages to people to thank them for not rioting:

Text messages sent to mobile phone subscribers
thanked people who ignored calls to join protests. "We congratulate our
towns which understood that interfering with national unity threatens
the future of generations," it said.

According to some, Libyan tensions are not as big as those in Egypt, and the country may avoid the same fate:

Libya-watchers say the situation is different from Egypt, because Gaddafi has oil cash to smooth over social problems. Gaddafi is respected in much of the country, though support for him is weaker in the Cyrenaica region around Benghazi.

"For sure there is no national uprising," said Noman Benotman, a former opposition Libyan Islamist who is based in Britain but is currently in Tripoli. "I don't think Libya is comparable to Egypt or Tunisia. Gaddafi would fight to the very last moment," he said by telephone from the Libyan capital.

We are confident that the long weekend will confirm or deny this hypothesis.

Egypt - poor, repressed people fight for freedom because they can't afford food.

Wisconsin - overweight teachers making above-average salaries with cushy pension and health benefits fight for increased taxes (on everyone else) to continue the gravy train.

We are mostly all Americans here... we have the American EGO! we are seekers of freedom for others....

when in reality, we seek money / oil / energy from others... and we really live in a police state.

In Wisconson... the elected officials will be forced to participate at gun point (or by people who carry guns, same fucking thing) to vote or not vote and just be present, legally.

That is a police state action.

now my ego doesnt want to acknowledge that, but it is true.

we should admit we have a problem openly and then try to fix it.

Yep. He's the US pawn. But it's going to be harder this time: murder trial of that US embassy "employee" is looking grim. Pakistan already rebuffed US demands to release him to the US. Kerry was sent personally to beg for him. His job description at the embassy was so vague that it's assumed he's CIA. And he was carrying weapons illegally. 

But there's huge internal power struggles that will split the country. Inflamed muslim passions are pushing it over the top

Any1 here knows why the Aztec civilization ended ?

1 - they had an uncontrolled population growth, after they killed or conquered everybody they had no enemiies and no war could be fought

2 - their religious beliefs made them sacrifice the strongest members of society (killing beautiful virgins and strongest warriors) their gene pool deteriorated so far that they got killed off by diseases and parasites

3 - they have grown their population faster than theri technology which could not support the numbers anymore

4 - they have stangated through political/religious/social Bad Habbits, most of which our society share untill there was nothing holding them back from extinction

The discussion was about the level of insanity, and not about who it is okay to shoot.

Meaning, sometime next year.

(As are most of the supposed Jews in America) The banjo-eyed big-nosed "Jews" all have Khazarian heritage. Bunch of cunts, they are. Run all the banks too. (Burned up a bunch of other Khazars in Germany to get oppressed minority status....bunch of cunts) PS- Don't quote sites debunking the Khazar Myth. Those sites are run by Khazars who run the banks and everything else. (Bunch of cunts, like I said)

No, they are from the lineage of Abram & Sari, approx 100-200 miles south of Bagdad.

Recent DNA testing has shown that only about 12% of Ashkenazi jews are from the Khazar region-most Ashkenazi jews are Europeans who converted to judaism back when the jews actively converted people in the first couple of centuries AD.

Libya and Iran need to go down. I've had enough of Ahmedinapuss and Khadafistein ranting at us.

Glad A'puss cheered for Egypt but he's not so happy now that his people have turned back on him.

It's all pretty amazing. Fill up yor cars with gas just in case.

Both Circus of Power albums are great, pretty much every track.  Think Guns and Roses with the voice of Jim Morrison.

Unfortunately they are not on iTunes and are very much under appreciated.

Wolfmother is impeccable too IMO.

The latest theory is that only the upper classes converted to judaism and not the entire kingdom since recent DNA testing has shown that most ashkenazi jews are Europeans from other areas.

For the very first time any where on the internet i read some thing like this.

"The United States’ disrespect for law and insistence on its own exceptionalism is becoming more blatant every day. I suspect that a groundswell of disgust at its behaviour is growing in the world. It is a nasty, hypocritical, extremely dangerous country and a plague on the world. When it collapses, few will grieve and the only people to be surprised will be its own inhabitants."

You don't speak for me.  We need an internal comeuppance.  Get the fuck over ourselves.  Lone hegemony is not an ideal condition.  Too fucking expensive and makes too many enemies.  And the 30-year debt-based growth binge is coming to an end. 

The government is no longer governed with the consent of the governed.  That message will get through one way or another.  I hope it goes more like Egypt than Iran.

It's not the foreign douchebags I worry about.  It's the ones we keep "electing".  I find your line of thinking too binary.  America good therefore anything the government does is good and all other nations are lesser beings.  Asserting our soveriegnty to our own government is not the same as bowing down before foreign leaders, which your president seems to do frequently.  I say your president, not because I think you would have supported him, but since he's the leader of America, that must make him the greatest bestest person in the world to your line of thinking. 

Believe me, I'm a blood-watering-the-tree-of-liberty type and I shoot very tight groupings at speed.  If you don't think your government has majorly fucked up conditions at home and abroad in the name of control and power, your eyes aren't yet open. 

So who's the patriot?  The one wanting to whitewash its nation's mistakes, or the one who wants to own the mistakes, clean out the rot that intentionally caused it and get back to restoring the America he loves?  Are you a Tory or a revolutionary?  Enemies are both foreign and domestic.  Tell your CO.
