US Alerts Two "Elite Military Units" To Be On Standby Over Deteriorating Libyan Situation

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Earlier today, news crossed the wire that the Britsh Embassy was pulling all non-essential staff from its Libya embassy, with the release of this warning: "Given the security implications of the ongoing political uncertainty, the British Embassy is temporarily withdrawing a small number of staff, mainly those who work in support of Government Ministries which have been affected by recent developments." Moments ago, perhaps in an attempt to avoid the humiliation suffer by Hillary Clinton and the Benghazi fiasco, Fox News reports that "The U.S. military has alerted two elite military units in Europe to be on standby if needed to respond to a deteriorating security situation in Tripoli."

More:

In recent days both the U.S. embassy and British embassy in Libya have removed non-essential staff from their embassies.

 

A specialized Marine unit based in Moron, Spain, is in the process of being repositioned closer to Libya; and in Stuttgart, Germany, a special operations force assigned to AFRICOM has been placed on heightened alert.

 

Neither team has moved yet.

 

"We are repositioning assets in the region that could respond if necessary," a senior military official told Fox News Friday. "If the situation deteriorates (in Tripoli) we would be positioned to respond."

 

The positioning comes after a series of disturbing security developments. Protests broke out Sunday in the capital. The U.S., Britain and France -- the coalition that overthrew Muammar Qaddafi -- issued a joint warning Wednesday to the militias to observe the rule of law, amid concerns about rising tensions between armed rival factions. In Benghazi, there were two explosions at police stations.

Does this mean that following stern Russian resistance to US-Israeli military overtures in Syria, that particular conflict zone is put on hiatus, and now the geopolitical focus will shift back to the Arabian Spring's ground zero? At least there's some oil that may be in need of re-liberation there.

Oh, NOW they are alerting the military that something is up in Libya.  Great timing Obama / Shillary / Africom.  I will be interested to see if the Benghazi Hearings amount to anything.

Probably not.  After all, the Obama Administration could probably sic the IRS on its enemies with no repercussions, like Nixon did!  Oh wait...

Hamas was and is an Israeli controlled terrorist organization.

Arab Time Internet site circulated a report that the Imam of one of the mosques in the Palestinian refugee camps Al-Wahdat based in Jordan, said that Sheikh Al-Qaradawi, known for his blessings of brutal murders by Salafists  of all religious dissidents and Syrian citizens supporting authorities, deserves to die.

Reportedly, "the reason for such decision was the fact that Al-Qaradawi has become the spiritual leader of the Salafis and he justifies  the slaughter the people in Libya, Syria and Yemen as well as religious strife. " Palestinian Imam believes that Yosef Al-Qaradawi had violated the laws of Islam.

This address was sent to Gaza residents, where Al-Qaradawi is presently hosted  by the Hamas leaders. Moreover, according to the site, the plane which Sheikh Al-Qaradawi is using to visit Palestine belongs to the Qatari Emir Hamad bin Jassem Al-Thani and the flight security was provided by the Israeli air defense.

According to France-Press, following the Israeli attack on Syrian military sites, Palestinians in the town of Khan Younes responded to the call by the PFLP and came out on a demonstration against the Israeli aggression against Syria. However, Žerhun Nasrallah, who was organizing the Palestinian protest, stated  that HAMAS security guards were using police sticks to attack and break up the demonstrations. 13 people were injured during these demonstrations.

The site also notes that the France press film crew reported that Hamas prohibited any anti-Israeli filming.

Let us not forget that the vast majority of terrorism (and revolution by extension) is state sponsored.   This is proven throughout history.   

The easiest way to see that a solution is created that meets ones needs is always to first create the problem.

Also real terrorism and or revolution requires money, resources and coordination on a scale that most if not all groups simply do not have.

Of course not, the republicans are too stupid to use any of the impeachment articles against Obama, so why would anyone think the gift wrapping of another will be of any use to them?  They have about a dozen to work with, many of them prima facie all they have to do is get the ball rolling.  They don't even really need to make the case.  It's cut and dried already.  They're morons.  Instead of actually doing something they want a dog and pony show about nothing.

It's simple.  The CIA was running guns to Al-Qeada linked terrorists a mile or so away from the Benghazi office.  I wonder how long after one of the shipments the (Al-Sharia/LIFG/Feb 17th brigade) procured they wanted to test out their new toys, and whoa a U.S. diplomat they've been threatening is 15-20 minutes away on foot.  

In other words Obama was/is in league with Al-Qeada.  They were giving guns to the people threatening to kill Chris Stevens a mile away from his location.   It's like handing the gun the John Wilkes Booth as he entered the theater almost.  Yet not one dumbass republican can make the connection.  Seriously. 

So what Benghazi is (and like Syria) is very similar to Iran/Contra except the people we gave the guns to are Al-Qeada, who we are 'at war with' supposedly and then used those weapons to kill ambassador Chris Stevens and others after receiving those weapons a mile away from the incident and after the threats had been made.  The coverup and the 'switch' to spontaneous demonstration doesn't really matter.  It's possible it was done to help cover up the gun running, but overall the info is out about the gun running, so the focus needs to be there.  Seeing how the embassy was attacked multiple times, including a rocket attack that took out one of the walls a couple months earlier, a real good question would be....'how many times, right after giving them weapons, did they shoot something off at the embassy with their new weapons?'.

But again we're also doing the same thing in Syria.  Most republicans are in on that scam.  So both sides are perfectly content to run guns to Al-Qeada on one side (on multiple fronts), and take away our rights for their bogus wars on the other.  In essence both parties are in bed with Al-Qeada.  Not to mention some of the most wasteful spending on nothing (DHS) ever. 

Our policy is so fucked that in Syria if the rebels use WMD's, it is ok, but if Bashar Al-asad does, then it's a red line where all the war morons on both sides want war.  You just have video's of these western backed Al-Qeada (since let's not forget the bigger roles in this nexus of Saudi Arabia, Britain, and the rest of middle eastern oil monarchies) testing out these chemical weapons and claiming they are going to use them in Syria.  You have the British eveidence of WMD's being trotted out, just like the Brits trotted out their Chilcot inquiry WMD evidence lies for the Iraq war in 2002-2003.  Obama shot down that evidence because it made him look good as it was obvious it wasn't going to fly this time. 

Republicans have all the info they need to take down Obama and have had it for years.   They could have impeached him in 2009.  A competent republican party or congress in general could impeach Obama a dozen times over.  They don't impeach him because they would be doing the same thing, perhaps even more brazen.  It's just a sick little game of trying to show optically they'd be the better tyrants. 

I mean just look at the incompetence.  You have running guns to Al-Qeada who then used them to kill our Ambassador, and they are stuck on the Susan Rice talking points.  I mean, ok, good to expose that genocidal witch, but the real issue here is the gun running.  They hold hearings about the incident and basically talked dick about it.  Issa is a fucking moron.

So we'll see if this Libya situation with units on alert has anything to do with trying to confuse the issue even more and show through force that we're against the people we have been supporting up to this point.   If anything this might be the response to the hearings.   That they'd go out and kill something.  

Democrat and republican fucktards are both pounding our ass hand in hand.

Ronald Reagan was the first to sign a blood alliance with Al-Qaeda. Up to now the alliance holds firm. Al-Qaeda is a long standing American institution, doing good work in Syria, Libya, Dagestan, Chechnya and the streets of any Russian city. Vlad's boys send a few to hell every week, and now Assad's boys are kicking Al-Qaeda ass for drill. No wonder Obama is in a panic, his Al-Qaeda legions in Syria have had their asses handed to them by loyal multi ethnic secular Syrian Army troops. USA foreign policy is too fucked up for words.

Among the dead was David Foy, an American diplomat and three Pakistanis. It appears that Foy was the direct target of the bomber, who detonated his vehicle in the car park behind the consulate as Foy arrived. The bomb was reported to be the most powerful attack of its kind in Karachi, and it left a two metre crater in the car park and destroyed at least ten nearby cars.

May I gently suggest that you not identify with your abuser? They are not "our" guys. They are the "guys" of the state. I know it is difficult not to self identify after decades of nationalism conditioning because I struggle with it myself. But it indicates the presence of the hive mind and a slave mentality.

Ultimately the grunts in the military are just like the rest of us, they are just likely to be from poorer backgrounds, and made one poor decision.

When they start to become stormtroopers, of course it becomes  a big problem.  I'm not in a position to estimate how much of the military is one or the other.

But my advice to them is, ignore your orders, and come home!

It was ridiculous watching common criminals aping their masters in politics with the,  "I have no recollection of that" routine after swearing in.

I can't, but here's a 100+ yeard old quote from Winston Chuchill, the former UK prime minister, on Islam and its followers.

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.…A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities ... but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.

Winston Churchill - The River War, 1899, first edition, Vol. II, pp. 248-50.]

Lets even it up?

WASHINGTON, GEORGE, in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton & Co.

    "They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy's armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in... It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America."

This prophecy, by Benjamin Franklin, was made in a "CHIT CHAT AROUND THE TABLE DURING INTERMISSION," at the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention of 1787. This statement was recorded in the dairy of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a delegate from South Carolina.

    "I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. The menace, gentlemen, is the Jews.
    In whatever country Jews have settled in any great number, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded, by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within the state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal.
    For over 1,700 years, the Jews have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, as they call Palestine. But gentlemen, did the world give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other people not of their race.
    If you do not exclude them from these United States, in their Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed here in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives our substance and jeopardized our liberty.
    If you do not exclude them, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude Jews for all time, your children will curse you in your graves.
    Jews, gentlemen, are Asiatics, let them be born where they will nor how many generations they are away from Asia, they will never be otherwise. Their ideas do not conform to an American's, and will not even thou they live among us ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots. Jews are Asiatics, are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitutional Convention.

Rotten muslims.

WTFx10 knows they're faked, he's copy/pasted the same screed a couple of times (last time I posted the entire refutation of the Washington stuff, which is actually a critique of currency manipulation in the war).

Note the Name and the Avatar. He posts them to cross index ZH to White Power forums / groups for the algos (since the content is the same, they ping as being similar sources), which results in ZH getting a lower "relevancy" score (you won't get anyone admitting it, but sites are weighted. e.g. A mainstream source such as the NYT gets a strong boost, while sites that have proven faked stuff / low quality sources get penalized) and pushes the site's profile into the far right of the search spectrum. So, your average Democrat voter, or MSM following Republican / Independent simply won't have ZH turn up in their search results even when they go looking for financial information. It also allows pattern recognition on the people following ZH.

TBH, his posting said rubbish probably costs Tyler ad revenue since it's trashing ZH's algo score. Posters who say "I hate the joos, derp derp" don't impact it nearly as much, as they're not just copy/pasting gibberish.

 

If you need proof, use the first three lines of the screed in Google, Bing and Duckduckgo & you'll see the quality of the sites listed - usually terrible "Islamic" sites that are actually honeypots run by intel or Mo s sad or White Power / Stormfront gibberish.

 

tl;dr

It's a crude way of "sliding" ZH into being invisible to the majority of people searching. TED talk on it: Beware online "filter bubbles" gives an easy / non-math explanation. The spooks / JIDF forum slide 4chan all the time, it's a common tactic.

 

p.s.

 

Point proven - junked within 5 seconds of posting. Spooky.

"He posts them to cross index ZH to White Power forums / groups for the algos (since the content is the same, they ping as being similar sources),"

Wrong, I post them to wake people the fuck up to the lies they are being fed on a generational level.

Its not the Banksters fault they are all Jewish or claim to be? Its not the media owners fault they are Jewish or claim to be? Its not Hollywoods fault they are all Jewish or claim to be? ? Its not the fault of the wealthiest individuals on the planet that they are all Jewish or claim to be? Its not their fault they are never listed as the richest individuals on the planet? Its just a coincidence that one Jew in American government is replaced by another especially when it has to do with economics? Treasury Secretary? Its not the Jews fault that our foreign policy is what ever Israel says it is? It's not the fault of the Jews! Its the Organized Criminal gangsters fault who happen to be Jewish or claim to be? Not all Italians are in the Mafia but that doesn't stop people associating the mafia with Italians.

There are assholes in every race and religion you might think I am one and you have proved you are one.

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.

"His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely,
Arthur James Balfour

Um. Oh dear. You actually believe what you're copy/pasting?

I've posted the Library of Congress scans of Washington's letters where your forgery was taken from, it's conclusively proven that Washington didn't give a flying fuck about "the Jews" at that time, because they weren't in charge of the money supply, but the people manipulating the material goods exchanges etc were hurting the war effort. Who were all Americans / British, living in AMERICA. There were hardly any Jewish people in America at this point, ffs. (B. Franklin even sent a nice letter to the tiny Jewish community telling them they were welcome in the land of "Religious Tolerance" if you want to choke on some irony).

 

Do a GREP for the last time you copy/pasted this drivel: you'll find a nicely sourced rebuttal to it, including actual scans of the letters. So, attempting to claim I don't have any credability is not going to fly, little man.

 

Next you'll be telling me you didn't realize that a large amount of funding, troops and advanced guns for the American Revolution came from the French. In fact, you might want to learn that the French had more troops in country than native American colonialists you twat. You might also have noticed they had a similar revolution just a little bit later: American War of Independence, 1775–83. Révolution française; 1789–1799. BUT FREEDOM FRIES YO! You're retconning history you know nothing about to fit your peanut-brained narrative. And I gave you the benefit of the doubt that your Avatar meant you were playing hardball. Sad.

Hint: The Jacobin terror in the French revolution also targeted Jews in the latter part (new Religion phase), and there were few Jewish influences within the movement.

 

As for criticisms of Israel: posting made up bollocks just harms any efforts for it to be taken seriously. Which is why you do it, isn't it? Stephen Hawking boycotts major Israel conference [BBC 8th May]. Posting nonsense like you do is nothing more than a feeble attempt to discredit legitmate criticisms. And, for the reference, I call out the more nonsense anti-Muslim stuff all the time.
