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.....

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 - http://www.zerohedge.com/article/guest-post-economic-death-spiral-has-be...

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.

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 come...it'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.

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.

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>...it'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.

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.

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?

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

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 you...now 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.

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.

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.

The machinations unfolding are clearly leading up to total subjugation of the oil producing countries from N. Africa across the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia and a few other thiefdoms are safe, as they are already U.S. client states.

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

I almost feel sorry for those whacked-out cultists!

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.

Lets see they liquified new madrid fault line for a week overflowed the mississipi river. Hit with harp 2.5 hz signal for 36 straight hours and it didn't blow. They got some sinkholes out of it but no boom. They just dont understand that the rockbed is too strong it requires enormous pressue and the "fraking" for natural gas cover story isn't going to weaken it enough.

Homeboy security has ordered up all the body bags but the h1n1 thing didn't work. The new madrid thing didn't work. So now it's plan C. I'm willing to bet dollars for donuts that the nuclear false flag has something to do with  a couple of suit case nukes going off somehwere close to new madrid followed by a huge haarp hit on it before the liquification and plate lubrication dries up.

Some people in japan have figured it out already too.

As pointed out correctly, the French and Brits have had SF boots on the ground literally since inception.  What amazes me however, is as of yet it seems that no responsible (read non-MSM) news outlet has identified the massive proliferation of automatic rifles arming the rebels.  They're FN FAL 7.62mm (NATO) (.308 Winchester also employed in the US's M-14 standard issue at the time) which were employed by a number of NATO members during the 50's and 60's before the switch from the 7.62 to 5.56mm cartridge. 

One of the country's most famously utilizing the weapon were the Brits.  Go figure.  Even more, the Libyans have never, ever armed themselves with FN/NATO arms or ammunition, preferring to remain clients of the (originally) Soviet AK (Kalashnikov) series of weaponry.

Where, then a enterprising curious mind might enquire, did all the FAL's suddenly arrive in the hands of the "rebels" being supported by the Brits who've a boody good supply of such in storage, which BTW were never wholesaled to other western client states..

Further, it appears that oneof the westerners is wearing a khaki beret, which in the British Army is reserved for SAS and non-SAS qualified troopies attached thereto.  T'all fits nicely, what?

While I agree with about 90% of your post, the FNFAL is a heavily used battle rifle in a wide swath of the world. 

The Fusil Automatique Léger ("Light Automatic Rifle") or FAL is a self-loading, selective fire battle rifle produced by the Belgian armaments manufacturer Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN). During the Cold War it was adopted by many North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries, with the notable exception of the United States. It is one of the most widely used rifles in history, having been used by over 90 countries.[3]

 

Nato countries of all types have been using the FAL since its inception so it is quite possible that the rebles could have gotten them anywhere.  Not every revolutionary uses the Kalinshnikov, despite what the movies would have us believe. 

You are probably right however.

Well, in around three months everyone is going to be a little suprised in that neck fo the woods when Canada can't send them any food either.

 

I have 140 acres along with everyone in the Valley that can't crop witht eh amount of rain we've had.  Unless they are eating cow corn which our livestock need, both corn and wheat (my understanding it's not in yet either).  The middle east is going to have a challenge, Israel included.  Mother nature isn't agreeing with the situation and it going to collect her pound of flesh.  In a desert that's not that hard.

At this point could give a shit how many nukes they have.  Just like gold or silver.  Eat a nuke.  See where that "security" measure got you.

 

So I invite all nuke baring countries to EAT THEIR NUCLEAR MISSLES.  Eat it fuckers.  We told you as engineers 20 years ago to knock it off.  So we'll die with nothing but our ideals, you get crow pie.  Eat one heaping fork full you douche bags.  Fire us, we make the dot/com, tank dot.com.

 

We run your infrastructure through your shitty children in gen Y, script kiddies and all.  Same people that couldn't figure out a needle and thread.  I should warn anyone with a Mac.  It will be a bad summer for you.  Your superiors enjoy the IPad living and there is no end of the nasty that is scheduled.  Funny thing is since the fuck nuggets have had their toys for around a year, the dumbfucks have dumped more information over the wire than 'Ass'ainge.  Weird thing he was script kiddie without any sort of talent other than self promotion.

The United Arab Emirates has confirmed hiring a company headed by Erik Prince, the billionaire founder of Blackwater. According to the New York Times, the UAE secretly signed a $529 million contract with Prince’s new company, Reflex Responses, or R2, to put together an 800-member battalion of mercenaries.

Documents show the force is intended to conduct special operations missions inside and outside the country, defend oil pipelines and skyscrapers from attacks, and put down internal revolts. The troops could be deployed if foreign guest workers stage revolts in labor camps, or if the UAE regime were challenged by pro-democracy protests like those sweeping the Arab world. One contract document describes, quote, "crowd-control operations" where the crowd "is not armed with firearms but does pose a risk using improvised weapons (clubs and stones)."

Of course there'll be UK and French special forces on the ground there. Although the UN resolution excludes a "foreign occupation force" the West will simply argue that they can't occupy a country with a few special forces acting as spotters for air strikes and that they're not going to stick around like the US did in Iraq as a result. The resolution doesn't actually specifically prohibit the presence of ground troops - just that they can't occupy the country. China and Russia will accept the use of special forces and won't make any fuss. Naturally they'll kick up a stink if 30,000 troops suddenly drop in as then it becomes an occupying force.

Well stated.

I don't usually agree with George Will (a pontificating blowhard of the statist variety IMO but maybe he's coming around) I think he's dead on here...blind squirrels/acorns etc.

"Liberals are situational ethicists regarding presidential war-making: Imagine their comportment if Obama's predecessor -- who got congressional authorization for his uses of force -- had behaved as Obama is doing regarding Libya. Most conservatives, who preen about their commitment to keeping government on a short leash, seem anesthetized by the administration's sophistries.

"No president," says Sen. John McCain, "has ever recognized the constitutionality of the War Powers Act and neither do I. So I don't feel bound by any deadline." Oh? No law is actually a law if presidents and senators do not "recognize" it? Now, there is an interesting alternative to judicial review, and an indicator of how executive aggrandizement and legislative dereliction of duty degrade the rule of law."

http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2011/may/28/george-f-will-on-libya-obama-breaks-war-powers/

But according to Senator Scroomer, the three branches of government are, the House, the Senate & the President...so what the hell, situation normal.

Scroomer is fucking demented.

So, yeah, his fellow "Peace Prize" winner (Lech Walsea) gave him the finger (no photo op for you!) for a requested meeting (sans missle shield)...he finally got home from his "European Vacation" (apologies to Chevy) to begin his tour of a ripped in half Joplin Missouri...meanwhile, the flood proceeds, as scheduled, to protect the governments "investment" in cities by allowing those in the countryside to fight & suffer on their own...with limited success.

Well, well the only thing left is for emergency powers to be put in place by Obama and the 2012 election to be postponed: remember, Clinton mulled doing this at the end of his last term.

I think the true revolutionaries who at one time had a chance to overthrow a government are no longer a threat to the disUnited States Central government.

When the federal government is as pervasive as our is, true revolution is impossible.  We are too spread out, don't much give a shit about one another, and our (their) Offense Department employs too many with too many really awesome weapons.  And I haven't any one I know who is, say, dying of cancer in 6 months and would sacrifice those to drive a semi loaded with a nuclear weapon into the Capitol building. 

I think I would but I haven't gotten enough resources together to make it pay off, to wipe out the entire government-- not D.C., New York, and particularlyWall Street. I can't be sure all the jews who control our destiny are in one place at one time.

Any government can be overthrown, it only takes 3 things.

1) Institution (money and free cashflow, a solid foundation that gives rise to 2 and 3)

2) Authority (leadership, a core group, maybe a kingmaker.)

3) Organization (someone to bark orders and have them followed, a place to organize and cash paychecks.)

Once you have the initial crew established you can move on down the tree of command. Each branch gets its own command and money to establish new recruits, 1,2,3.

10 can become 100 vary quickly and 100 becomes 1000.

Its work, disipline and money.  Turning zero hedge members into a fighting force wouldn't be as difficult as some would believe. Some may even have trainning already.

Commenting on the Libyan financial structure, Eric Encina observed in the Market Oracle, “One seldom mentioned fact by western politicians and media pundits is : the Central Bank of Libya is 100 per cent state owned. . . . currently, the Libyan government creates its own money, the Libyan Dinar, through the facilities of its own central bank.

However one major problem for global banking cartels is that in order to do business with Libya, they had to go through the Libyan Central Bank and its national currency, a place where they had absolutely zero dominion or power-broking ability.

Libya is a rich and sovereign country. It definitely has oil. But, as per the IMF, its central bank has nearly 144 tons of gold in its vaults. And it is here that Ellen Brown asks: With that sort of asset base, who needs the BIS, the IMF and their rules?

If the Qadhafi government goes down, it will be interesting to watch whether the new central bank joins the BIS, whether the nationalised oil industry gets sold off to investors, and whether education and healthcare continue to be free.

Very interesting:  got a source?

Remember one of the first thing the alCIAda rebels did was form a central bank:

And the reserves from this bank came from a robbery by the US trained 'Minister of Finance':

read niall ferguson's (harvard prof) books.  In 2000 there were 7 countries absent from the Rothchilds' banking cartel:  Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Cuba.  Now there are 5 and soon to be 4.  I hoping their cookie crumbles soon.

You're either for the invading armies or against them...bollocks to all this liberal, "oh the soldiers are just the poor and misguided"..."and lets give flowers to the police"

Soon they'll be on the streets coming for guys like me, I'm well aware of it. The more of them that get their dicks blown off overseas the better.

Standing up for what is right when it is universally unpopular is +9999 for karma, actually.

If you make yourself a dog of the military, you shouldn't be surprised when you are put down.

Edit: please note that I didn't junk you, and I understand your opinion.  However, when one signs up to be a Nazi guard, one must deal with the consequences of such an action, whether it is abandonment by the fascists who used you up and spit you out, revenge by those whom you oppressed, or general abuse from those who never wanted anything to do with this or any aggressive war started by the Feds.
