I just hope they got that crucial DNA evidence prior to whatever means of quick body disposal they choose to go with. They've already used up "burial at sea", so I am guessing funeral pyre or this one. No doubt some obscure tribe in Libya advocates such a method.

Why burial at sea? Was Qhaddafi also working for the CIA Al Quada Division? maybe after burial at sea they'll take to to CIA headquarters at langley for a de-breifing and new assignment.

I personally don't think he was a CIA agent, so burial at sea is unlikley. Someone will show us the body.

I think that it was all about the gold.  Saddam wanted gold for oil which resulted in death.  Omar Gaddafi wanted gold for oil which resulted in death.  Not saying that these guys didn't deserve it.  But they were put in power by the US of Banks and removed when they no longer adhered to the master plan.

In August of 1969 King Idris of Libya was in Turkey for medical treatment. On September 1, 1969 a group of about 70 junior Libyan military officers lead by Muammar Gaddafi took the opportunity to stage a bloodless coup d'état. The Movement quickly evolved into the Revolutionary Command Council which on September 7, 1969, announced that it had formed a cabinet to conduct the business of the government of the new republic. The following day, the RCC promoted Captain Muammar al-Gaddafi to colonel and appointed him commander in chief of the Libyan Armed Forces, making him the new de facto head of state.  U.S. government documents from this period show that Libya was the country with the most potential for problems in North Africa.

United States officials recognized that it did not want to tie the U.S. to the authoritarian and corrupt monarchy of King Idris. The United States recognized the Revolutionary Command Council (RCC) as the new government after the September 1969 coup.

From Wiki

On 29 April 1945, the bodies of Mussolini, Petacci, and the other executed Fascists were loaded into a moving van and trucked south to Milan. There, at 3:00 am, they were dumped on the ground in the old Piazzale Loreto. The piazza had been renamed "Piazza Quindici Martiri" in honor of 15 anti-Fascists recently executed there.[122]

After being shot, kicked, and spat upon, the bodies were hung upside down on meathooks from the roof of an Esso gas station. The bodies were then stoned by civilians from below. This was done both to discourage any Fascists from continuing the fight and as an act of revenge for the hanging of many partisans in the same place by Axis authorities. The corpse of the deposed leader became subject to ridicule and abuse. Fascist loyalist Achille Starace was captured and sentenced to death and then taken to the Piazzale Loreto and shown the body of Mussolini. Starace, who once said of Mussolini "He is a god,"[123] saluted what was left of his leader just before he was shot. The body of Starace was subsequently strung up next to the body of Mussolini.

Aside: Substitute bankers for fascists.....wait, that is being redundant...

We are being subject to a massive media war over what is really going on in Libya.


26th June 2011 - American in Tripoli: First Hand Account - Investigative reporter Wayne Madsen

Investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, who spent some time in Libya, shares his views on what's really going on in the country and why the mainstream media deliberately misinforms the public about real goals of NATO.


He has said "Gaddafi (allegedly) has a lot of support in Tripoli."
Libya has attained the highest standard of living under this dictator. Like him or not like him, this fact is in his favour, at least he has not robbed the Libyan people to the point of destitution.
He goes on to say "One of first places targeted by NATO was the Libyan anti-corruption agency. The agency was poised to bring charges against some government ministers for syphoning off Libyan oil revenue into their own swiss bank accounts.
Almost to a person these are the guys who defected to the rebel movement.
A lot of the ownership of NBC is General Electric, one of the big military contractors.
Fox is Murdoch who has his own interests in keeping these wars going."

1st July 2011 - CIA asset: 'Libyan opposition is al-Qaeda' and they are engaged in crimes against humanity 

Susan Lindauer, former CIA asset who covered Libya for nearly 10 years, has received video documentation from refugees fleeing the rebel strongholds of beheadings, castrations, gouging out the eyes of men who oppose the Libyan rebels, woman are being raped and subjected to having their breasts cut off.

 NATO is bombing pro-Gaddafi forces who are supposed to be the ones engaged in crimes against humanity but it is the Libyan rebels that NATO is supporting who are the ones engaged in crimes against humanity.

"NATO are targeting the pipe factory of the Great Man Made River in the city of Brega, where pipes are manufactured to compensate for damaged pipes of the river, THE ONLY SOURCE OF DRINKING WATER and irrigation for 4.5 MILLION the people of Libya" 

"July 22 2011. A date for humanity to remember. NATO hit the Libyan water supply pipeline. It will take months to repair. Then on Saturday they hit the pipeline factory producing pipes to repair it."

“beat detainees in order to extract “confessions” more quickly.”

What good are such “confessions”. People will confess to killing the tooth fairy to stop the beating.

“ “arrests” are better described as abductions… no arrest warrant was presented”

“Children have not been spared. Some have been “arrested” alone”

Gaddafi NEVER hired mercenaries. “THEY” know it. My mentor knows it. I know it. Yet they lie. I will expand this in the video reports.

“between a third and a half of detainees were Sub-Saharan African nationals, many of them migrant workers.”

“Most Sub-Saharan African nationals, both men and women, interviewed by Amnesty International were seized at home or at checkpoints, not captured in battle.”

“For instance, a group of 14 Nigerian men and 12 Nigerian women arrested”

“Those who arrest us called us ‘slaves’ and said that we should go back to Africa because there is no place for us in the new Libya.”

“people were still all being detained without an order from the judicial police or General Prosecution.”

NATO’s Libyan Operation: Mass Graves and Ethnic Cleansing

Burying Tripoli dead and, 29th June 2011, Tawergha depopulated of its 10,000 people.

“The rebels are also said to be converting a number of buildings into additional prison space, apparently out of concern that the prison-happy Gaddafi regime simply didn’t have enough room for the enormous numbers of people the new pro-NATO regime is detaining.”

“Last week it was reported that the Libyan town of Tawergha was depopulated and its mostly black residents sent to refugee camps.”

“Amnesty International issued a report last week on “gross” human rights violations in Libya”

“Brigade for Purging Slaves, black skin,” according to Digital Journal.”

“A 16 year old Nigerian described her ordeal to the BBC, saying armed men forced their way into her home. She said "They locked my mother inside a toilet. Six of them raped me.”

“U.S. Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr., has called for an investigation to be carried out by the International Criminal Court into the killing of black people in Tawergha, Black Presence reports”

Mahdi Nazemroaya- 'Abductions and Assassinations in Libya'

Caught Qatari troops, caught Italians


8th September 2011 - Assault on Libya – WARNING: corpses with small/large parts missing after being “liberated”

"In the words of Zbigniew Brzezinski:

… the three grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together.”

Barbarians ? All I can say is ‘what a f**king piece of s**t this guy is’ and also that this passage is the most loathsome, vile, disgusting, despicable and evil piece of text I have had the displeasure to read for quite some time, in particular because it’s author has not come to a sticky end yet. I am sure that for him and his like, that time will come.

Is that enough adjectives ?

And has anyone wondered why the Mujahideen have disappeared and now there is al Qaeda seemingly in it’s place ?

Gaddafi has donated a lot of revenue from Libya’s crude oil sales to Mali, Niger, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Central African Republic, Liberia.

“You invade Bahrain. We take out Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. This, in short, is the essence of a deal struck between the Barack Obama administration and the House of Saud. Two diplomatic sources at the United Nations independently confirmed that Washington, via Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, gave the go-ahead for Saudi Arabia to invade Bahrain and crush the pro-democracy movement in their neighbor in exchange for a “yes” vote by the Arab League for a no-fly zone over Libya – the main rationale that led to United Nations Security Council resolution 1973.”

Oh yeah, now we are getting to the truth.



8th September 2011 - NATO hits Libyan Great Man Made River … targeting Libyan infrastructure

“Let me again remind the world some of the statements made earlier this year by NATO commanders. One in particular by a frustrated Gen. Sir David Richards, KCB CBE DSO ADC Gen, Britain’s Chief of the General Staff, who proposed that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) should target Libyan “infrastructure,” including electrical power grids and fuel dumps, in government held areas, on May 16, 2011, in Naples, the command center for the war in Libya. He suggested that NATO should be freed from restraints that precluded attacking infrastructure targets”

What the f**k is this guy talking about ?

I would very much like to look this guy in the eye and slap him across the face.

“We stop US/NATO aggression now – we stop World War 3”

Syria is next for “liberation” then Iran.

“If NATO and its allies’ contribution to protecting civilians is bombing their water supply then it is our job as peoples of this world to stand up and respond to this heinous war crime, whether or not the politicians do.”


8th September 2011 - Debunking Biased ICC on Gaddafi (27 June 2011)

 “a visit to the Coalition for the International Criminal Court (CICC) site reveals just who is behind the ICC, who is actively promoting it and networking with the ICC’s various NGO partners, and the fact that all involved boast the same financial and political supporters. The ICC is very much also tied to the European Union which provides over 60 percent of its funding, plus other organizations connected to George Soros, who also instigated the Egyptian Arab Spring.”

Not George Soros again, please no. This is ridiculous.

“real cases of atrocities,

On May 14: NATO massacred Libyan religious leaders at Brega.

On May 13: NATO killed over 150 of Libya’s most senior Imams who assembled for a peace conference. (NOTE: Brega was chosen….because it is the closest government held town to the rebel held stronghold of Benghazi, and the Imams planned to send a delegation (there) following the conference. But, early on May 13, NATO bombed their site, killing at least 10, injuring over 40 others severely enough to require hospitalization)

Two Imans traveled back to Tripoli, held a press conference and condemned the attack. NATO confirmed it, claiming it targeted a “command and control center,” a deliberate lie.

FYI: The structure was a temporary residential complex or guest quarters and it was unrelated to Libya’s military.

Or the 28 children who died 3 hours after the bogus NO FLY ZONE was implemented, and not long after that the 1200 civilians the French Rafale jets targeted in a University town?”


More Financial Terrorism on Libya and on Africa (27 June 2011)

“The Libyan Ministry of Health have confirmed that air strikes to date by NATO have killed 3452 civilians”

“One fact that has escaped all is that in 2009 Colonel Gaddafi paid some USD 30 billion in surplus oil revenues to the citizens of Libya, the citizens that your court has now accused of some serious offenses.”

“The freezing of such funds has of course had a strong impact in Africa where out of 25 countries, 22 of them were in the sub-Saharan Africa which badly needed such investment,. For example, the first telecommunications satellite Rascom which entered into orbit in August 2010 allowing African countries to use the communication centre outside the reach of the US owned satellites, is in need of constant maintenance which of course now lapses because of the funds held and seized because of the US and EU. More important than such was the money invested into the African Union (1) the African Investment Bank based in Tripoli (2) the African Monetary Fund based in Cameroon (3) the African Central Bank based in Nigeria. The development of those bodies enables African countries to de facto escape the control of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund which classically remain the tools of neo colonial domination and of course marks the end of the CFA Franc, the currency that 14 former French colonies are forced to use by France. Perhaps this explains why President Sarcozy remains keen on leading an intervention and deposing of Colonel Gaddafi.”

Oh yeah, now we are DEFINITELY getting to the truth.


The Truth about Libya (and Syria) TORONTO CONFERENCE (video of 4 uploads)

Michel Chossudovsky, Professor of Economics (Emeritus) at U. of Ottawa, author, and Director of the Center for Research on Globalization.

“In the wake of the cold war we were told that Al CIAduh was no longer an ally as they had been during the Soviet-Afghan war and they had now turned against us” – BLOWBACK.

“Al CIAduh was an instrument of US intelligence, an intelligence asset and what is very important is that Al CIAduh has remained an intelligence asset from the outset right up until today.”

Russia and China are also targets alongside the nations listed by former four star general Wesley Clark for attack perhaps with nuclear weapons.

“The global war on terror is an inquisitorial doctrine; it is not based on fact.”

“Syria, armed insurrection and armed terrorists are involved in arson against government buildings, on attacks on police and armed forces… THE DEMONSTRATORS HAVE HEAVY MACHINE GUNS… and Turkey is providing them with weapons.”

“The road to Tehran goes through Damascus.”

“We are potentially in a WORLD WAR 3 SCENARIO.”

“Syria would be a much more deadly process.”

“Libya is the gateway to the conquest of the entire African continent.”

“Syria is the gateway to the conquest of the Middle East and Central Asia region extending right to the Chinese border.”

“Because of the war on Libya important development projects in the rest of Africa have been halted overnight.”

“Under a state of siege. This siege including creating a currency shortage, creating a water shortage, an electricity shortage, a fuel shortage and a food shortage.”

“NATO is a terrorist organisation” – he gets a round of applause from the audience.

People are waking up to the bulls**t.

Troops from Qatari are in Libya, troops from Jordan

“Carpet bombed Tripoli.”

“The three big lies, 1) Gaddafi massacred his own people, 2) he used military jets to target civilians and protesters, 3) portrayed black Libyans as foreign mercenaries in their own country.”

“Syria communities, they have been living together in peace for hundreds of years.”

“It is an outrage to steal their nationality away from them.”

Murder and rape perpetrated by these supposed rebels was reported to have been perpetrated by pro-Gaddafi forces.

False flag vicious torture.

There has been a historic effort to divide that country.

Looking for Tripoli to 'develop' into another Baghdad or Kabul.

"Don't think any terrorist can tank the markets as efficiently as a politician can."

But the combination of the two could be a powerhouse for the ECB.  Just imagine a hopelessly deadlocked EU Summit that is "attacked" by a Qaddafi Loyalist (or insert terror organization here).  Suddenly, we are all compelled to take the action that wasn't approved to show them darn terrorists that although they despise what we stand for, we will toil on steadfastly!  After all, if the terrorists are opposed to EU Summit agreements - then we must approve the agenda to prove that we are strong, no?

It would also send a strong message to the dissenters (who would be "in the know").

if we wanted Gadaffi did they have to kill thousands to get to him.. I think we all know that they did not ..he was an easy target ..

this whole thing stinks and is evil as any crime committed against humanity.

It started like an Arab Spring as in Egypt with the view to depose Quadaffi, then there were reprisals against the protest, which turned into an uprising, which then turned into a civil war when faced with armed suppression.  Nato got involved when Sarkozy needed to save face.  Himmlerly Clinton arrived when it was all done.

While some of these claims may or may not be true about the reasons fo the conflict, the fact remains that Gaddafi was a lunatic , someone whose rule was feared and in whose country you could be abducted and end up dead. A number of libyians are happy the man is not in charge anymore, i think this fact is indisputable. It is up to the libyians now to stand up and make sure they select good leaders and do not become the slaves of NATO or such other country. Also kudos for financing the project without bank loans but this brings the question to whether you should have a 0% state created money or a market dictated money such as gold and the market determined interest rate that comes with it and whch indicates the preferences towards savings (low interest rate) or consumption.

You obviously have some knowledge about these things. When TSHTF, are we expected to submit because there's a law on the books telling us to do so? These laws ARE important, but not for their ability to change things significantly. They're important because they show the contempt the system has for us, and underline its essential dishonesty.
