Update: Rebels Reject Offer; Latest Libya Development: Gaddafi Offers Rebels To Hold People's Congress To Let Him Step Down With Guarantees

Tyler Durden's picture





 

And the imminent update, which is just as expected: "AL JAZEERA SAYS INTERIM REBEL GOVT REJECTS GADDAFI OFFER OF MEETING TO CONSIDER HIS RESIGNATION"

Just out from Reuters: "AL JAZEERA SAYS GADDAFI OFFERS REBELS TO HOLD PEOPLE'S CONGRESS TO LET HIM STEP DOWN WITH GUARANTEES"

Following today's escalation in fighting the probability of any dialogue is exactly zero but let's see what this rumor does to crude prices.

More from Reuters:

Al Jazeera television reported on Monday that Muammar Gaddafi  has proposed to Libyan rebels to hold a meeting of the country's parliament to pave the way for him to step down with certain guarantees.

The television quoted sources for the report, which it ran as a flash on its news ticker during a broadcast. It gave no further details.

It said Gaddafi proposed the meeting of the General People's Congress, or parliament, to the interim council based in the rebel-controlled city of Benghazi.

So just another rumor for the time being. So far the credibility of any Gaddafi permanent resignation rumors is #notwinning.

John Galliano will no longer be the face of Christian Dior after a video showing him shouting “I love Hitler” in a drunken rant sent “shock waves through the start of Paris Fashion Week” -  leading to his ouster on allegations of bigotry after his 15-year reign as Dior’s mastermind of creation. Not to let PC interfere with the flow of money, however, Dior will go ahead with its Galliano-designed falll-winter 2011-12 collection.

Oscar-winning Natalie Portman, the new advertising face of the Miss Dior Cherie perfume line,” who is Jewish, expressed fury over the remarks,” according to the AP March 2.

Apparently the “shock” was just too much for Dior CEO Sidney Toledano, who “was deeply hurt because he’s Jewish.”

After police investigated Galliano, accused by a couple “of hurling anti-Semitic insults at them at La Perle, a café in Paris’ Marais district – a hip neighborhood known for its sizable gay and Jewish populations" - another woman came  forth accusing Galliano of anti-Semitic insults in October at the same brasserie.

The AP reports that “making anti-Semitic remarks can bring up to six months in prison in France; Galliano appeared in a Paris police station Monday to face the accusations.”

Meanwhile, to continue with the lynching… Anthony Gregory writes today in his piece:  The Cannibalization of Charlie Sheen”:

“That Charlie Sheen has been the biggest national story, while the Arab world is aflame with revolution and the U.S. marches toward ever more war and economic disaster, is not the most remarkable thing. What is most striking is how easily so many line up behind a consensus that someone ought to be the butt of all jokes and the focus of everyone’s mockery and outrage…

“To add to the perfect storm, the TV star has violated one of the greatest doctrines of political incorrectness. Although Sheen himself is Jewish, he has committed the grave sin of involuntary anti-Semitism. This piece in the Telegraph, drawing a bizarre link between Sheen, the Pope and Julian Assange, describes the key allegation as "Charlie Sheen’s renaming of the producer of his former sitcom Chuck Lorre as ‘Chaim Levine’, carrying with it as it does two suggestions: one, that Jews are the controlling forces behind the US media, and two, that they have disguised this fact about themselves and need to be outed."

Gregory concludes:

“But the confluence of factors in the media’s sacrifice of Charlie Sheen tells us more about the media than about the man. There is something rotten in our mass culture. It is the stench of an establishment that pushes a flavor of social progressivism upon the country while reserving the right to burn social heretics at the stake on even the most hypocritical of pretenses.

“And it is against this establishment’s witchhunt and all its nefarious social consequences that a defense must be waged. Most certainly, it can be argued that Sheen has not acted virtuously. But the attacks on him have clearly been more distasteful, more pathetic, more indicative of a society in decline, than his own behavior. For the crimes of drug use, sexual deviance, and political incorrectness, a great talent has been thrown under the bus by a drug addled, sexually deviant, socially insensitive, politically clueless mass media and liberal culture. They have eaten one of their own. It has happened many times before, to Robert Downey, Jr., Britney Spears, Tiger Woods, and now Christina Aguilera. And it will happen again. And if even the most handsomely paid actor on TV is helpless against the official pop culture’s hypocritical lynch mob, what hope do any of us little people have should the mob decide we too deserve to be lynched?”

http://www.lewrockwell.com/gregory/gregory206.html

ZH commenter, Redstone, about summed it up today on “Goldman Now 3 Out of 5 in World Monetary Domination: Goldmanite to Replace Andrew Sentence at Bank of England”:

“The Goldmanites/Rothschilds control the message and now have operational control of much of the world’s commerce. It gets to a certain point that the injustices from this speech bondage and financial incest - which some call the Jewish Brotherhood - cannot be tolerated and it breaks.

“It’s indefensible.

“The key to this power has been UNLIMITED access to the fiat world reserve currency.”

We know what Galliano said; what we don’t know is what the two “injured parties” said to Galliano.

Of course, anybody sane knows Galliano doesn’t “love” Hitler; it was a caustic remark, but it makes an excellent headline to keep the sheeple in check.

Gaddafi's jets slow rebel advance on Sirte The Guardian - ‎1 hour ago‎ Libyan jets have launched multiple strikes on opposition fighters near the oil city of Ras Lanuf in a counterattack designed to halt the rebel advance on Muammar Gaddafi's hometown, Sirte. Sure like he has antyhing to lose.... One way or another he will be canceled and i bet he understands this. There will be no stop nor negotiances.

Fighter jets - of 10 targets they missed 9. Well trained those troops with military gear that's 20+ years old.

Rebels will win, motivated by hope for change unlike Gaddafi's side by monetary bonuses. He might keep Tripolis and it's surroundings for some years, unless change comes from Nato and US. No fly zone = attack of a sovereign nation.

Remember USA 2008 - same story - bad outcome

The absolute simplest and easiest solution to the jets problem is to spread around several hundred shoulder launched anti-air missiles.

Shoot down a dozen or so fighter/bombers and then see how many more would still want to play. I believe the Soviets found it quite bad for pilot moral.

Cheap, easy solution and doesn't involve any of the issues involved with a no fly zone.

So of course it wont be considered for a moment.

(them craaazy ragheads might sell them to Al Qaeda afterall)

Also, doesn't give western powers the option of getting involved in dictating  developments.

Air force *was* actually fairly substantial, at least for use on your own populace. 120 MiG-23s, 40 Su-22 ground attack aircraft, around 35 Mi-24 Hind helicopters.

You'll be trading the silver and .223 for toilet paper in 72 hours.

You need 6 months of food - waiting for your garden to grow.

Pop quiz: who has killed more people in the past six months, Qadaffi or Obama? 

All this talk about removal, extradition, insanity, etc. can just as easily apply to the US as it does to Libya.  I gotta hand it to any mainstreamer who can keep a straight face while denouncing the "violence" in Libya.
