"The Jihadists Will Attack Europe": Leaked Phone Call Shows Gaddafi Warned Tony Blair Of Terror Attacks

Tyler Durden's picture


On Wednesday, we took a close look at the battle for Libya’s oil.

Libya, much like Syria, is a case study in why the West would be better off not intervening in the affairs of sovereign states on the way to bringing about regime change. “Toppling dictators” sounds good in principle, but at the end of the day, it’s nearly impossible to predict what will emerge from the power vacuums the US creates when Washington destabilizes governments.

Post-Baathist Iraq is rife with sectarian discord, a post-Assad Syria would likely be an even bloodier free-for-all than it already is, and post-Gaddafi Libya is a failed state with two governments each claiming legitimacy. These types of environments are exploitable by extremists eager to capitalize on the chaos by seizing resources and, ultimately, power.

Just today for instance, nearly 50 people were killed in Libya when a truck bomb hit a police training center where recruits were holding a morning meeting. “Mayor Miftah Hamadi said the truck bomb detonated as around 400 recruits were gathering in the early morning at the police center in Zliten, a coastal town between the capital Tripoli and the port of Misrata,” Reuters reports, adding that “the Zliten blast was the worst since an attack in February last year when three car bombs hit the eastern city of Qubbah, killing 40 people in what officials described as a revenge attack for Egyptian air strikes on Islamist militant targets.”

"It was horrific, the explosion was so loud it was heard from miles away," Hamadi told Reuters by phone. "All the victims were young, and all about to start their lives."

The blast was the deadliest since Gaddafi’s ouster and comes as militants loyal to Ibrahim Jadhran battle ISIS for control of key oil fields and ports. Islamic State’s presence in Libya has grown and the group may be looking to supplement oil income lost to Russian airstrikes in Syria with sales of Libyan crude.

Who could have seen all of this - including the Paris attacks - coming, you ask? Well, Muammar Gaddafi for one.

According to The Telegraph, Gaddafi warned Tony Blair that jihadists would one day attack Europe in the event his government fell. “Gaddafi's dire prediction was made in two desperate telephone calls with Mr Blair on February 25, 2011 - as civil war was engulfing Libya,” The Telegraph writes. “In the first call at 11:15am, Gaddafi said: "They [jihadists] want to control the Mediterranean and then they will attack Europe." Here’s more:

In a second call made a little over four hours later, Gaddafi told Mr Blair: "I will have to arm the people and get ready for a fight. Libyan people will die, damage will be on the Med, Europe and the whole world. These armed groups are using the situation [in Libya] as a justification - and we shall fight them."



Mr Blair had made two calls to Gaddafi to try to negotiate the dictator's departure from Tripoli as civil war engulfed the nation. Three weeks later, a Nato-led coaltion that included Britain, began bombing raids that led to the overthrow of Gaddafi. The dictator was finally deposed in August and murdered by a mob in October.



This is what Gaddafi got for his trouble:

So much for this:

You'll recall that Bashar al-Assad also warned Europe that destabilizing governments was a recipe for disaster. "We said, don't take what is happening in Syria lightly," Assad said, in the wake of the Paris attacks.

"Unfortunately, European officials did not listen," he added.

 She was merely taking Gaddafi's advice.


"Gaddafi said: "They [jihadists] want to control the Mediterranean and then they will attack Europe."

By destroying Europe, the USSA supports the Fed Reserve system and removes a potential competitor. Our mafia government hates competition.

London Soldier Hacked To Death By Machete-Wielding Terrorists


A horrifying daytime attack by local terrorists armed with meat cleavers took the life of U.K. soldier Lee Rigby, who was butchered and left dead in the street in southeast London. The crazed killers shouted "Allahu Akbar" after completing their grisly crime and then demanded stunned passers-by take video.


Ok, from 5/22/2013 but do you think anything has changed there except for the worse?

During Bush there was a far left publication
"War Crimes Times"

they never put Obama on the cover, even after Libya

and then they just closed up shop.

Must be Soros quit paying them.

One thing we have all learned is that the left are liars, warmongers, hypocrites, envious, don't care about women, hate white people and are trying to push the destruction of America.

Worst People in the World!!

I was just wondering if anyone had put thought into whether the oil available for export would have been less under stable governments in Libya and Syria and Iraq due to stable populations economic needs being fulfilled.  Maybe that's why these countries are favored in an unstable state, so that more exports are available, even if those exports are out the backdoor or some combination of out the front door and out the backdoor at the same time.

It might be interesting to contemplate what level of imports and exports of all kinds would have been needed for stable countries, versus which imports and exports are occurring under unstable conditions.   Profit streams for certain products might have provided motive too.  And since it's nearly a zero sum game, what effect would stable countries needs being fulfilled have on the economies and needs of other countries?  Are needs fulfillment being traded off?

Traitor Blair is easily the most hated man in the UK by a loooong margin. If he tried to walk through a major city without his close protection officers at a time when the police were absent, he would end up like Gaddafi at the hands of the locals. The level of hatred for the man that swamps the comment section of any UK article involving him is something to behold.

The vast majority of the British public was vehemently against being taken to war against Saddam's Iraq on obviously trumped up reasons. The largest demonstration in UK history (between 1 to 2 million precipitants) was in opposition to Traitor Blair's manoeuvring to take the British public to war. Of course, being a fully paid-for scumbag he took the country to war against the people's wishes and an enormous number of Iraqis died during the invasion and the bloodbath that followed. Blair was rewarded with millions after leaving office for betraying his country and for being a good little traitor.

I cannot express just how hated he is in this country, and it's from all sides both Left and Right. He is the personification of scum.

I think it was January 2014 when Bliar was last under "Citizen's arrest" while dining with his family at a London restaurant. A worker at the restaurant attempted to hold him for war crimes infront of his friends and family and take him to the local police station. I wish I had been there to see his face!

PS: Just found out that there was a bounty on arresting Tony Blair - you got 1/4 of the donated money for making a citizen's arrest. Details here: http://www.arrestblair.org/

Not sure about that.

When he moved to Jerusalem to take up his new role as Middle East peace envoy the first house he tried to move into was a former British diplomatic palace situated on the Hill of Evil Counsel, where Judas is said to have betrayed Christ.

And you only have to look at the Middle East since he took up this peace envoy role to understand what this man is capable of.
