The United States cannot even look after its own American citizens and as usual
tries to threaten sovereign nations with their barbarism!

Gaddafi threatens bloodbath in Libya

Wed Mar 2, 2011

Libyan strongman Moamar Gaddafi has warned "thousands" will die if the West intervenes to support the uprising against him, as rebels drove back an attack by his forces on an eastern town.

The chilling warning came as Western powers dampened expectations of any early imposition of a no-fly zone over Libya, amid a clamour from Western states for action to prevent Mr Gaddafi's warplanes from attacking his own people.

Rebels called for foreign air strikes on African mercenaries they said were helping Mr Gaddafi stay in power.

But the veteran ruler warned much blood would be shed in "another Vietnam" if foreign powers intervened in the crisis.

"We will enter a bloody war and thousands and thousands of Libyans will die if the United States enters or NATO enters," Mr Gaddafi told Tripoli supporters at a gathering televised live.

"We are ready to hand out weapons to a million, or 2 million or 3 million, and another Vietnam will begin. It doesn't matter to us. We no longer care about anything."

Government troops briefly captured the strategic town of Brega, an oil export terminal, before being driven back by rebels who have held the town 800 kilometres east of Tripoli for about a week, rebel officers said, adding they were ready to move westwards against Mr Gaddafi's forces if he refused to quit.

Witnesses said the attack was backed by heavy weapons and air strikes. Further bombing raids near the oil terminals were carried out in the afternoon. Estimates of the death toll during the day ranged between five and 14.

The assault on Brega appeared to be the most significant military operation by Mr Gaddafi since the uprising erupted in mid-February and set off a confrontation that Washington says could descend into a long civil war unless he steps down.

One of the witnesses said Mr Gaddafi's forces were two to three kilometres from the city centre and had 300-350 rebels pinned down at an oil industry airport on the city outskirts.

There has been talk among the international community of the possibility of imposing a no-fly zone over Libya, but US defence secretary Robert Gates says such a move would first require an attack to cripple Libyan air defences.

"One of our biggest concerns is Libya descending into chaos and becoming a giant Somalia," secretary of state Hillary Clinton told US lawmakers.

Washington says it will keep pressure on Mr Gaddafi to quit, and is moving ships and planes closer to Libya in what is widely seen as a symbolic show of force.

On Wednesday two US amphibious assault ships, the USS Kearsarge and the USS Ponce, passed through Egypt's Suez Canal arriving in the Mediterranean.

The White House said the ships were being redeployed in preparation for possible humanitarian efforts but stressed it "was not taking any options off the table".

Mr Gates said: "Our job is to give the president the broadest possible decision space."

"Let's just call a spade a spade. A no-fly zone begins with an attack on Libya to destroy the air defences ... Then you can fly planes around the country and not worry about our guys being shot down," he told a congressional hearing.

Mr Gaddafi, who once said ballot box democracy was for donkeys, told the gathering in Tripoli the world did not understand he had given power to the people long ago.

"We put our fingers in the eyes of those who doubt that Libya is ruled by anyone other than its people," he said, referring to his system of "direct democracy" launched at a meeting attended by visiting Cuban leader Fidel Castro in 1977.

Referring to an unprecedented two-week-old popular uprising against his rule, Mr Gaddafi also called for the United Nations and NATO to probe what had happened in Libya, and said he saw a conspiracy to colonise Libya and seize its oil.

Human Sacrifice

So we can expect millions of children to be killed by sanctions and a shock and awe style attack on Tripoli.
The Talmudic appetite for blood is insatiable.

Arab ministers to reject intervention in Libya

Young Americans are destined to die outside the United States. There is nothing for them in their own country ....
homelessness, unemployment, food stamps and a whole host of poverty stricken problems ...

That is their American Dream! Ha!

Arab ministers to reject intervention in Libya

Leaders in the US, Europe and Australia have suggested a no-fly zone over Libya.

AP March 2, 2011


Cairo:  An official says a draft resolution to be voted on by the Arab League opposes foreign military intervention in Libya.

Leaders in the US, Europe and Australia have suggested a no-fly zone over Libya.

Embattled leader Muammar Gaddafi has unleashed bombing raids, special forces and army troops in a desperate bid to stay in power.

Foreign ministers of the 22-member group will meet in Cairo on Wednesday to vote on the resolution.

The Arab League's deputy secretary-general, Ahmad Bin Heli, said Tuesday that the resolution will also call for unity of Libya, approve sending aid to the North African nation and back formation of a fact-finding mission.

Gaddafi is trying to beat back a two-week-old rebellion, but has lost control over large parts of the country.

In my point of view, there is not a country especially the U.S. due to its past, with enough credibility or moral authority to act as a global cop.

The events we see currently happening in the Middle East should be handled by the U.N through a multination peace corps, such as the blue helmets.

But unfortunately, the U.S. lobby inside the U.N. is extremely active and for sure managed the situation until a point that make the rest of the countries accept sheeply that the "best" solution is the U.S's prompt deployment troops (and later grab the Lybian oil fields as a war booty...you know...war reparation )

the UN has been clearly exposed as nothing more than a tool of the zionist regime.
Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

China Opposes Foreign Intervention in Middle East

China Opposes Foreign Intervention in Middle East

Xinhua          


China opposes the intervention by foreign forces in the unrest in the Middle East and relevant missions should be led by the United Nations, a Chinese spokesman said Saturday.

A similar unrest in China is "preposterous and unrealistic", said Zhao Qizheng, spokesman for China's top advisory body which is convening its annual session in Beijing.

There would not be such a situation in China, added Zhao, former head of the Information Office of the State Council, China's Cabinet.

He made the remarks at a press conference for the Fourth Session of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

He had told a group of foreign journalists last month that many of China's problems, such as income and regional gaps, surfaced in the process of rapid economic development. However, the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government were trying to resolve them.
