Gunmen Storm Libyan Parliament, Start Shooting

Tyler Durden's picture

When it comes to expressing democratic opinion, one can wait for one's corrupt congressional critter to do something, which will never happen if that something is against the will of the largest lobbying client, or one can take matters into their own hands. The latter is what disgruntled Libyans did moments ago. From Reuters:


It may not be the most polite way to get one's views across but it gets the job done. But more importantly, when it comes to the epic chaos that is post-CIA intervention Libya, what difference does it make if parliament is stormed by enraged vigilantes?

I just knew there was a reason for the rally today - I mean other than the fact that its Tuesday.


Hamburger to be paid for on Tuesday:

The Libyans getting unruly?

Better sanction Putin and his friends.

Has Nuland been passing around her cookies again?

El Vaquero's picture

I just can't get over that.  Geopolitics and FUCKING COOKIES!  Seriously, WTF?  That is one dumb fucking cunt.  I can almost hear the thought process going on:  "Like, OMG!  Lets bake some cookies and go around and give them to Ukrainian police!  That'll, like, totally win them over!"

The Yale/Harvard/Berkeley selfie generation IS the Obama regime.  The dangerous naivete of these inexperienced "progressives" was clearly manifest in the Egyptian debacle.

Edit.  Don't forget, Kerry brought his dog to "bring the chldren to work" day at the State Department last week.  Very disturbing really.

The inmates are running the asylums all over the world. The worls knows a bunch of pussies when they see them.


Holder is now demanding to know why more white men aren’t in jail. Good luck with your next traffic ticket, you’ll no doubt be charged with a felony.

I'm demanding to know why Holder isn't in jail.

Demand away, but don't expect an answer.

End the war on drugs and there'll be plenty of prison space for these warmongering cunts.

El Vaq, +1 for your impersonation that reminded me of Zappa.

My thoughts too Stooge! My god American foreign policy is a sweet thing. Ruined countries across the globe and they are only getting started. Biggest target if Russia, that's the goal.

Manthong's picture

Actually, Libya might be a Russian op and tea cakes could be the confection of the day.

If I was a certain Eurasian State Department, I would be starting brushfires everywhere the US and/or EU thought they had a lid on things.

Forget them....they have already started at home. Been to Detroit lately? Or Camden? The federal government is indebting everyone to build an emerald city of lobbyists and government contractors. Well except for the intelligence arm run out of Silicon Valley under the guise of private companies, but really just the NSA and Wall Street the real decision makers and repository of money...though they keep the accounting numbers off shore!

what's the common theme, fukkin corrupt government!   the human race has a serious leadership issue that cuts across race, religion & geography...

Jack Burton's picture

Yes, the cancer is world wide. Corruption is now global and we aren't allowed to ask WHO is behind a lot of it. Ukraine for example, I studied up on the issue over the weekend, it appears all parties inside that nation are so corrupt it defies words. All sides are nation rapers and if Ukraine wants to progress then the people, both ethnic groups need to clean some fucking house. I mean French revolution style.

Ghordius's picture

welcome to the club of those who see corruption as the global problem number one, then

yet if you study the history of bloody revolutions like the French, you'll realize that they usually don't decrease corruption, they usually just change the class or group of the corrupted

fighting corruption is slow work. it requires dedication, passion for justice and often even identification with the state's goals

Dr. Engali's picture

True, but they didn't have the internet during the French revolution. People are watching these events unfold world wide in a real time basis. TPTB try to get the masses to believe their story line but the truth comes out far sooner than they would like, and people are seeing that the rot is pervasive across the globe. I believe there is some potential for good to come out of this chaos eventually. 

El Vaquero's picture

In the end, yes, but I suspect there will be more pain and suffering along the way than most realize.

Ghordius's picture

people have internet nowadays, yes. but do they have memory? to be frank, the age of the internet makes my personal and daily quest for information faster, but also harder

Bangin7GramRocks's picture

I'm confused? I thought America brought those savages some freedom! What the hell is going on? We may need to deliver more death, I mean freedoms.

That's better.  Perhaps this kabuki theater will finally have an action sequence...

I wonder if inflation including energy and food is a problem over there? Or, is it firmly anchored?

Libyan Government? 

McMolotov's picture

Another bang-up job by Uncle Sam and his marauding horde of interventionist fucktards who continually turn entire societies upside-down in the name of "freedom and democracy" and leave nothing but chaos in their wake.

That's Pox Americana for you. At least it's consistent.

Ghordius's picture

as consistent as the Old Imperialist World Order? there, if you took an African country, you were responsible for what happened there

just asking, I am often scared by people who try to be too consistent. humans aren't made for consistency, imho

Before the people's "spontaneous" uprising Libyans were amongst the wealthiest people with free health care, education & electricity. They also received a monthly pay-out from the oil revenues. Of course the world hates us for our freedoms.

Libya, Iraq, Syria and can see the hand of "divide and rule" play mayhem wherever Pax Americana "brings compassionate peace and democracy" ; as they proclaimed when Q-daffy was eliminated. 

i wonder whats in store for Karzai's successor in Poppy farm--drone-Taliban land. 

thamnosma's picture

Maybe we should take bets on how long the Taliban needs to take over after we leave.  

BandGap's picture

WTF, are they lost? Get them to eastern Ukraine, stat!

thamnosma's picture

So this is what the brilliant minds within the Obama Regime and NATO partners came up with for Libya, and Syria, and Egypt (foiled) and Ukraine and and...

Seriously, after watching events in Libya and Egypt, along with the media orgasm over "Arab Spring", why did anybody expect a different outcome in Ukraine.

Is it a full moon or something? I mean really!

Thousands of years ago when this happened it was widely accepted that the gods were coming. Then, some really bad shit happened.

This time is not different.

full moon was a couple weeks ago... but there was a solar eclipse last night...

And just think, while the US is behind the curve in the civil unrest department compared to the rest of the world, the signs that it is going to be here in the future are already appearing.  The APD protests and the Bundy ranch are just the beginning.  We got to see that the Occupy protests were useless, meaning that peaceful revolution is not being allowed to work.  There are a plethora of problems plaguing us, but we keep hearing the "All is well" call from Washington DC.

the mix of headlines just today on ZH reads like a badly written play.

Libya is down to about 300K bpd.

No sign of improvement.

Libya is down to about 300K bpd.

Hey, that's doubleplusungoodthink and mathcrime!

Libya has quadrupled output, up to 300K bpd. Next month they expect to double that to 100K bpd.
