In Violation Of UN Resolution, Western "Boots" Are Now On The Libyan Ground

Tyler Durden's picture

In a TV slip caught by Al Jazeera, yet another Zero Hedge prediction has been confirmed: namely that it was only a matter of time before NATO "boots on the ground" would promptly replace the CIA's "sandals on the ground" in a fully Western-backed land invastion of Libya. Since it is too early to predict the nationality of the armed invaders, we will assume they are British as Al Jazeera speculates, because otherwise Congress is about to find itself in an unprecedented scandal for completely ignoring its duty to impose the War Powers Act, which in turn would mean that the President now has a unilateral right to enforce the invasion of any country he so chooses. We will leave the bitter implications of what this could mean, as America celebrates, and remembers the lives of so many who died for this once great country, to others.

From Al Jazeera:


And from The Guardian:

Armed westerners have been filmed on the front line with rebels near Misrata in the first apparent confirmation that foreign special forces are playing an active role in the Libyan conflict.

A group of six westerners are clearly visible in a report by al-Jazeera from Dafniya, described as the westernmost point of the rebel lines west of the town of Misrata. Five of them were armed and wearing sand-coloured clothes, peaked caps, and cotton Arab scarves.

The sixth, apparently the most senior of the group, was carrying no visible weapon and wore a pink, short-sleeve shirt. He may be an intelligence officer. The group is seen talking to rebels and then quickly leaving on being spotted by the television crew.

The footage emerged as South Africa's president, Jacob Zuma, arrived in Tripoli in an attempt to broker a ceasefire. He described reports that he would ask Muammar Gaddafi to step down as "misleading", and said he would instead focus on humanitarian measures and ways to implement a plan concocted by the African Union for Libya make a transition to democratic rule but not seek Gaddafi's exile.

The westerners were seen by al-Jazeera on rebel lines late last week, days before British and French attack helicopters are due to join the Nato campaign. They are likely to be deployed on the outskirts of Misrata, from where pro-Gaddafi forces continue to shell rebel positions to the east.

There have been numerous reports in the British press that SAS soldiers are acting as spotters in Libya to help Nato warplanes target pro-Gaddafi forces. In March, six special forces soldiers and two MI6 officers were detained by rebel fighters when they landed on an abortive mission to meet rebel leaders in Benghazi, in an embarrassing episode for the SAS.

Once again, the west has overstepped its UN-granted powers in the pursuit of humanitarian extraction of crude oil.

The subject is sensitive as the UN security council resolution in March
authorising the use of force in Libya specifically excludes "a foreign
occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory

The situation, however, is about to come to a fore, after it was announced that Libyan rebels have now officially run out of crude oil, meaning that absent on the ground reinforcements, Gadaffi is about to win the civil war.

And while the UK and the other members of the security council could not care less, we somehow doubt that China and Russia will allow a full-blown land invasion of Libya pass without a veto and what appears to be the next diplomatic scandal.

Just in time.....phew!   I was wondering when Dajjall would show up..... 

pointer's picture

dajjal = israel...the symbolism is everywhere, even in the USA

I saw a map once, it was a time line - and I wish I could find it - but it highlighted all of the geographical regions where past wars were fought and vs. which empires - and they all centered around Jerusalem and Baghdad. If anyone knows what I'm talking about I would greatly appreciate a link.

When people say it's because of oil - I remind them that we have only really needed oil from those nations for maybe the past 70 years or something like that - definitely a few hundred hears ago.

The USD is the ultimate tool of the Dajjal - which is why we invade and overthrow Iraq when Saddam  refused to accept US Dollars for payment, then Ghaddafi said no more dollars, only gold and silver - now look where we're at.

When you sit back and look at it all, it's absolutely brilliant how complex it all is - this was a great article in understanding how the USD is used -

In the end, Gadaffi will prevail...NATO forces are not prepared for this type of warfare.

If only Gadaffy had a tactical nuclear weapon, he could use it on the invading forces. I hope he does and uses it. The oligarchs of the west think the lightest and sweetest crude in the world belongs to them and they have the right to profit from it as they see fit.

I love watching the bad guys kill each other.

sooner or later Americans will realize that we are being controlled by Israel, and jews (maybe zionists/AIPAC Lobby).  The same is beeing done with other developed nations.   At the same time I will say that not all jews are to blame, many of them are on our side...  Here is a link to one of them:

Why would Israel want to destabilize the MENA and overthrow friendly dictators like Mubarak and Gaddhafy and have them replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood?

Escalation of Threats torwards Israel will ultimatly mean more money for them and eventually lots of US soldiers "nation building" there neighbors for them. They create the demand we give the supply.

Because then the Aggressor looks like the 'defender'.

Because the Muslim Brotherhood have been allies of White Capital since it was created by the Brits almost a century ago.

They are fighting the ineviable tide of history and repeats.

They get two choices in the next decade.

  1. Caliphate
  2. Ottoman Empire with a nice Nazi edge to it.

Take your pick.  As I've mentioned before, if I were Israeli, I would be selling everything and flying to the otherside of the world.  History has a habit of repeating itself baddly.  Even Isreal acting like a thug to it's neighbours and that coming back to bite it in the ass.


ebb and the flow to the universe notes that if one acts like an ass, then the universe winds up for a big fuck you at the end regardless of your religon.


Somehow I don't think this will go as well as people think it will on the top.  I'm waiting for the youtube video of some well fed kid getting eaten.  I've said it once, I'll say it again.  This isn't about NATO, or oil...this is about food, one of the seven basic needs to life.  Cannibalism here we'll make Night of the Living day look like a mother's day card if they catch an Israeli, video it then meme it.

Modern agriculture is dependent on oil, and necessary to feed six billion.


CPL's picture

7.1 billion.  6 billion was done during the census 11 years ago.  2025 is the 9.2 billion mark.


It's not that we aren't breeding, it's the fact we aren't dying like flies like we used to.  That will change with a slip off the shoal into the decline of oil.  All the precious snowflakes born of North America/Europe and the established upper class will have no choice but to throw their children into the fires of humanity to keep themselves alive.  Machines are fantastic things, but when systemic entropy hits a complex system that requires something so cheap and useful, the central powers that be are going to have a very difficult time keeping the lights on.


It's May 30th and we're just starting on the heat wave that will wake up 1 million portable generators to keep internet data centers, tv stations, radio stations and the cold chain running.


//grab a chair, have a beer...we'll watch ideas like Victoria Day and Memorial day go up with it all.

World doesn't get to 9.2 billion. We're going to have enough trouble feeding 7.

CPL's picture

in this universe we're allowed to appearently.  Same universe that brings infinite wealth on home short sales.  Never said it would happen, that's the math.  And it isn't 9.2 billion on the projections, I'm always very conservative, if things make morons feel safe, we'll be at 15 billion by then.


On this, the human ape is good at.  Fucking and lying to the herd things are ok.


Feels good to be a Conservative Catholic right now and understanding that an old man in a dress that want you call him father, is an option.

Dont be too sure about yourself. There are powerful people here guiding the lines. 

I agree with you about the food though...monsanto, xe, heavy metals, water supplies. the next big things. strange how that gets left behind. The big smoke and mirrors jobby...Or are you suggesting is that somethings going to happen and they're just getting ready....rather than causing the problem?

Nothing happens without action...

Does anyone else not by this bullshit...??

I'll give it to you this way.  Even anonymous is staying out of this, discussion around the subject isn't of people being overthrown or a loonie tune dictator being thrown under a bus.  This is something we can do nothing about.  It's a too many mouths with too little food.  In that case all, I (or anyone else for that matter), shouldn't go anywhere near that.


Egypt was a slightly different situation.  The pricks knocked down all the communications network.  Now...<sigh>'s going to be a huge mess, I doubt personally there will be much infrastructure to help rebuild by the end of September.


So who cares that they are taking photo op's with junior engineers, those kids.  They'll be dead in a year.  We all know it.  Look at them.  Fat and haven't missed a meal.  Those brats are the crotch fruit of whatever turd wants a IMF blessed central bank in there.


That photo OP is a photo of dead boys given enough time and the stupidity to show their faces.

Could be, my best bet is those kids are already boned.  If they have kids, it will be an Irish slaughter, kill the man to the roots.  Don't let the genetic material leave the area.


Good British strategy.  Been done a thousand times in the past and countless in the future.  Prima nocta is a great reverse.  Kill a tree branch by branch.  After a while all that is left is fire wood.  To be forgotten and ignored.

CPL's picture

There were powerful people.  Now we are watching those powerful people eat one another alive over paper.  Let them.  Let them have every last piece of their nonsense.  On a planet of 7 billion, they are just a tiny molecule in a fart of humanity and just as lone remembered.


As small people we do what anyone with a lick of sense does.  Understand they can beat that dead horse, ignore them and make our own plans.  Since it is abundantly clear the system has been broken for a while.


Ignore the children busy breaking their toys, eventually they don't get anymore toys to play with regardless of how wrapped up in their nonsense they are.  Religion, money and location...appearently the Aztecs were important to.  We just read about the dead now in a history book and only guess what they did by digging up bones.

Crazy. Well, Libya does have a hastily cobbled together one now, at least the rebels do.

I have to say, this Libya invasion has been one of the most brazen use of un-justifiable military strength. None of it makes sense. He was killing civilians so let us bomb you to kill more civilians so that you kill less civilians. 

I think the need for an 'excuse" to do whatever is becoming less and less now as crumbtards are clearly asleep.

You forgot Belarus.  Apparently not taking the recent transit bombing as sufficient warning they have opted for Plan B to bring that nation's CB to heel:

There are no "Jews" or "Israelis" as a singular group.

There are Shephardic and Ashkenazi

Ashkenazi who have no use for the former.

Many of the elite trying to control the world are a microscopic secular group of Ashkenazi, who have no use for the non-elites of that group.

The rest of us? pawns to be sacrifaced for the greater plan. just like those Shephardic and non connected Ashkenazi "jews" currently living in Israel.

Last year George Soros just put 60M USD into the worthless embargoed Gaza strip through Saraj Fund Management. Obama chipped in 20M through OPIC. Then automagically Mubarak, Israels bought off partner in keeping the border locked down, is deposed. The new government just announced it was making the border wide open.


And what are George's "worthless" investments worth now?

And if you think SoCal real estate is being bought at bargain prices, what will TelAviv RE be worth in the midsts of a WMD tainted war?

CPL's picture

Same value as sand?


Only if you believe that sand has value.  No difference between Israel or Montana.  Crazy people seem to like living in fucked up assbackward values on what value is.  Pay lip service to what a neighbour is, yet could couldn't name five without pulling a name out of their ass.


Typical city people have city problems are they have zero ownership of their problems even if it is.  Just look at New Orleans, fucking dump before hand, dump after a flood.  Nothing changed and not a single fuck was given.

Because the Israeli Ashkenazi Jews could care fucking less, have 300+ fucking nukes, and are itching to use them to annihilate the true Semites in the region.

That's easy to answer: because the Muslim Brotherhood is an MI6 asset, and the UK belongs to ZOG.

Mistake #1. Undereducated America will not realize anything of the kind.

Shredd the FED's picture


I am not a military strategist, and my thoughts about what is going to happen in the Middle East are based only on a map of “future Israel territories” that I had found on the Internet some time ago... Also forgive me for my English language mistakes, because I am Russian American, and English is my third language.

None of Middle East countries is a threat to Israel. Not even Iran. Everyone knows that Israel has nukes and chemical weapons. No one from surrounding countries would dare to attack them. Plus the US is the "biggest" friend (for now) of Israel... So, tell me who from surrounding countries would want to start a war with israel??? If they started, they would loose and their land would be occupied like it happened with Palestine...

So, in my opinion a chaos is being created over there, so they can create a falls flags, that the Israel is under attack or something like that, and israel starts a "defensive" military operations with a help of US, and NATO... Eventually, over time, Israel would keep the lands that where shown a map (as I mentioned before) as a territories to be connected to israel...

Even if the land is not taken, it would still be under “our” control. Every day more and more Americans realize who is in control of the US government. Our countries capital is not Washington but Tel Aviv, and our President is Netanyahu or AIPAC… You probably have seen videos of some senators telling that now “the white house is full of israeli citizens”… The FED, the biggest banks, largest financial institutions, most of the US media (main TV stations, and Newspapers), were created, taken, and still controlled by Jews. There is plenty of facts and information about that. Simply go to Wikipedia and search who were, and are the people that sit in a top positions of most powerfull US institutions. One very important prove that they are in control, is the immediate attack on those who are trying to say anything against the israel, or zionism. I already know that my comment will get bunch of negative responses. Three years ago I would have responded negatively to such comment as well. But now I know what is being strictly hidden from Americans

Here are some links for you to older and newer videos:

Yes and yes.


The idea that Russia, the US or Canada could ship food...weapons...whatever in the next five years spells out the complete multilation of ...well... everything.  All countries require the shipment of good, yet they fucked around on philiosophy.  They argued on NONSENSE.  But that is neither here nor there.  Russia has opened their grain stores.  Their FOUR YEAR OLD grain stores.  Unless they are hoping to make sand, that's great.  The US sold all of their stores three years ago.


Canada sold their's two years ago along with Australia.


This is the crop that matters right now, if it doesn't come in...well..October is going to be interesting.  Money is worth fuck all.  How's your non-facebook empire?  You have your family and friends intact?  Doubt it.  If you are spouting nonsense empire crap, guess what?  You are on the short list to be helped.


Doesn't look good?  Then you are going to starve.


Lenin was right, farmers rule the world.  You want a gun..GET YOUR ASS IN THE FEILD AND GET THE FOOD.  Or we'll burn what's left.  The country side is sick of you. 


Die already.  Only reason historically for food measures to get smaller and more expensive is usually when the king has sold the "reserves".  Guess what?  That already happened.  While all the assholes were busy arguing, the Chinese and the Indians moved into the valley's of Canada and offered silver and gold, straight trade for food for the last five years.  If I could recommend one company FEED, chinese company, listed and all about the business of buying food.  Instead of USDA (kellogs, Nabisco, etc.) companies which are listed for the idea of pushing around food producing companies.


Stupid thing is nobody paid any attention.  Everyone was so busy spouting nonsense on the philosophy of food they forgot to eat like a bar-room drunk.  So...where does that leave most of you?


Growing a 2x6 garden thinking it will feed you for a year because of some horseshit in a tabloid.  Takes a bit more than that.  I would go over the calories grown and needed human requirements.  But let's put it this way, for what is sold in some crappy article couldn't feed a flock of 12 chickens for a month.  General rule of thumb is 1 acre = 1 human BEFORE tractors and the rest of it.  With oil  1/4 = one human.  Since we are running out of oil, anyone with an engineering background will appreciate this.

Look to the left of you, look to the right of look at yourself.  These are the people that will not make it through this course.  The people that will make it through this course are living in the gutter and outside of town...make sure to talk to your TA.


Oh, who gives a shit about Israel.  It's a problem that solved itself.  Be bad neighbours, get bad neighbours.  Not fucking rocket science.  No oil, dependent on around 90% of it's imports and the assholes that control the energy supply are around it.


Might I add, overpopulated, like the rest of the desert in MENA.  They are included, not excluded from the problem.  Like they were EVER excluded from overpopulation.  My MENA tally's and projections include Israel.  I never trade without it in the figures.

Green Leader's picture

Those are harsh words, comrade.

It's reality, though...I think something bad will happen to this year's crops.


 "General rule of thumb is 1 acre = 1 human BEFORE tractors and the rest of it."

That's called a tarea in Latin America, what a working agricultural man can take care of, a mere one acre. My grandfather taught me agriculture in the tropics boils down to a war against vines. You lose that war, there is no food. Vines can creep so fast is spooky.

Vines, bitchez!

Sorry, but I might disagree.

You can not win a game with a bandit: if he wins, he wins, if he loose, he kills you and wins anyway.

That is a play between farmers and armed hungry crowd pooling out of cities.

Just ask 30 million farmers starved to death in Ukraine by Stalin's restrictions, brought by comrades send from industrial cities just to make them "ready for revolution".

Partially you're right. Sometimes rural living gives you greater possibility to run and hide, the chance may be bigger than in cities. But don't expect to harvest your fields in peace observing starving cities on CNBS.

Fundamental Islam is the obstacle, and the cheese is in the trap...

Maybe we shouldn't box up those emotions just yet.  I mean, america was sent to war using emotion... remember all that anger and possibly fear experienced during 9/11.  Remember how that anger and fear was cultivated through the media?  Emotions are powerful tools, if we used ours and understood them instead of constantly hiding from them and suppressing them, perhaps possitive change could happen.
