The Last Country America "Liberated" From An "Evil" Dictator Is Now Openly Trading Slaves

It is widely known that the U.S.-led NATO intervention to topple Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 resulted in a power vacuum that has allowed terror groups like ISIS to gain a foothold in the country.

Despite the destructive consequences of the 2011 invasion, the West is currently taking a similar trajectory with regard to Syria. Just as the Obama administration excoriated Gaddafi in 2011, highlighting his human rights abuses and insisting he must be removed from power to protect the Libyan people, the Trump administration is now pointing to the repressive policies of Bashar al-Assad in Syria and warning his regime will soon come to an end — all in the name of protecting Syrian civilians.

But as the U.S. and its allies fail to produce legal grounds for their recent air strike - let alone provide concrete evidence to back up their claims Assad was responsible for a deadly chemical attack last week - more hazards of invading foreign countries and removing their heads of state are emerging.

This week, new findings revealed another unintended consequence of “humanitarian intervention”: the growth of the human slave trade.

The Guardian reports that while “violence, extortion and slave labor” have been a reality for people trafficked through Libya in the past, the slave trade has recently expanded. Today, people are selling other human beings out in the open.

The latest reports of ‘slave markets’ for migrants can be added to a long list of outrages [in Libya],” said Mohammed Abdiker, head of operation and emergencies for the International Office of Migration, an intergovernmental organization that promotes “humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all,” according to its website. “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.”

The North African country is commonly used as a point of exit for refugees fleeing other parts of the continent. But since Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011, “the vast, sparsely populated country has slid into violent chaos and migrants with little cash and usually no papers are particularly vulnerable,” the Guardian explains.

One survivor from Senegal said he was passing through Libya from Niger with a group of other migrants attempting to flee their home countries. They had paid a smuggler to transport them via bus to the coast, where they would risk taking a boat to Europe. But rather than take them to the coast, the smuggler took them to a dusty lot in Sabha, Libya. According to Livia Manente, an IOM officer who interviews survivors, “their driver suddenly said middlemen had not passed on his fees and put his passengers up for sale.

Several other migrants confirmed his story, independently describing kinds of slave markets as well as kinds of private prisons all over in Libya,she said, adding IOM Italy had confirmed similar stories from migrants landing in southern Italy.

The Senegalese survivor said he was taken to a makeshift prison, which the Guardian notes are common in Libya.

“Those held inside are forced to work without pay, or on meager rations, and their captors regularly call family at home demanding a ransom. His captors asked for 300,000 west African francs (about £380), then sold him on to a larger jail where the demand doubled without explanation.”

When migrants were held too long without having a ransom paid for them, they were taken away and killed. “Some wasted away on meager rations in unsanitary conditions, dying of hunger and disease, but overall numbers never fell,” the Guardian reported.

“If the number of migrants goes down, because of death or someone is ransomed, the kidnappers just go to the market and buy one,” Manente said.

Giuseppe Loprete, IOM Niger’s chief of mission, confirmed these disturbing reports. “It’s very clear they see themselves as being treated as slaves,” he said. He arranged for the repatriation of 1,500 migrants just in the first three months of this year and is concerned more stories and incidents will emerge as more migrants return from Libya.

And conditions are worsening in Libya so I think we can also expect more in the coming months,” he added.

As the United States government continues to entertain regime change in Syria as a viable solution to the many crises in that country, it is becoming ever-more evident that ousting dictators — however detestable they may be —  is not effective. Toppling Saddam Hussein led not only to the deaths of civilians and radicalization within the population, but also the rise of ISIS.

As Libya, once a beacon of stability in the region, continues to devolve in the fallout from the Western “humanitarian” intervention – and as human beings are dragged into emerging slave trades while rapes and kidnappings plague the population - it is increasingly obvious that further war will only create even further suffering in unforeseen ways.

Slavery still exists in America.

However, if my head is clear, I will sometimes hear the voice of Murry Rothbard.   He reminds me that by doing for these people what they could and should be doing for themselves, our government is intentionally preventing these, "descendants of slaves," from ever being truly free.  As Lyndon Johnson supposedly said, "I'll have those niggers voting Democratic for 200 years."

The 1713 Treaty of Utrecht that ShitBob goes on and on and on and on about also granted the English the right to trade slaves from Africa. Just sayin'

Apparently, Gaddhafi had more gold than any other country hidden in the desert. So the French Jew, Bernard Henri Levy, part of the Zionist World Group, organized the West to bomb Libya, the most prosperous country in Africa, in order to steal its gold.

The banksters could not, did not and will never allow such a thing to enter existance.

Its not like there's thousands of years of wretched human history that points to the pure folly of interventionist policy.

I might feel bad about them being sold into slavery if they didn't engage in behavior like this once they reached Europe:

Sure and before and after that the english slavers sold Irish men women and children (taken for their homes for sex slaves) to americans allover the us and  the islands.   My mitochondria from Ireland was also held by a slave irish girl and is in the Black Slave lines from forced breeding , oh so cheap!  and in the Cherokee Rolls from a lucky girl who got  away.

Any Collins family readers from Ireland?

“Money is a new form of slavery, and distinguishable from the old simply by the fact that it is impersonal – that there is no human relation between master and slave.”
-Leo Tolstoy, Russian writer.

East Indian's picture

100% right. 

impersonal slavery is far worse; the master does not have to feed the slave or care for his sufferings. You simply drive by the homeless who was toiling for you till yesterday.

The greatest question before us today is, "In an economy, who should have the power to create money, and how much money should be created?"

Believe me, the future of mankind is hanging on the answer to this question.

You are a gentleman, it is seen. But please cut out all these politeness when you hit the Earth.

And please aim straight for my home. You will bag 20 million+ at one go, and I will die without knowing what hit me.

It's unfortuante the Sheeple apparently cannot read or research anything at all. Political/geopolitical, medical, economic/financial... not even the most simple basic stuff in simple forms. When asked why the were voting for Hilda, "..because she's a woman.." was the most common answer. When asked about her foreign policy decisions [or Obummer/Bush's for that matter] they had no clue. The literally knew nothing.... and so it goes... straight down the tubes.

I am fairly sure I agree with both of you, but in any regard, just funnin a bit, which, you know with all the insanity of late, helps me to keep my own, if ya know what I mean ..

For some strange reason, that line always reminds me of "The Deer Hunter."

No matter how hard I try, I cannot seem to get this out of my head ... (no pun intended )

They got nothing on US:

Bankers used Lincoln to end slavery in the South, and used Wilson (Income Tax Act, the Fed) to extend it nationwide.

This is true.  Someone has to tell us.  Our lives are relatively easy and our history of struggle is forgotten.  Even if intellectually curious, it takes decades to aquire knowledge. 

Take the time to explain to an American what you know about the world and correct us when we are wrong.  We are isolated by oceans.  We are fed BS in school.  We see no reason to care about world affairs. 

If more of us do not learn, we will have to repeat history. 

Boris Alatovkrap's picture

Boris is repeat history several time, but is only because Boris was stubborn and would not accept revisionist version taught by statist educator in Moscow middle school.

onya Boris. My little mum the regional beauty in an outback school in Aus handed in a blank history exam with a smirk at her final school year in 1935. refused to bow to the story told by english historians, didnt know like you did, but her blood told her.

Brains have shrunk in the last  few hundreds of years. US were illiterates when the irish slaves were imported  early on.. irish were literate  revenge: men died in  a year max. Women bred. US is Reverting.

If you get going and re-learn basic surival  skills, food making, growing in cold climates, health medicine  from natural you will grow.  If you look back your ancestors survived horrendous times, its a miracle you are alive Xena and its your duty to survive.

No. The Banksters were at the helm in historical fashion.
The money changers are pure evil. 

 “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.”
