Overview of the Libyan aggression:
The area of Libya, one of the largest countries in Africa, is 1,757,000 sq km (678,400 sq
mi). Arabic is the official language, although Berber is sometimes spoken and English and
Italian are used in trade .Arabic must be used for official purposes. Islam is the state
religion, and about 97 percent of all Libyans are Sunni Muslim. A small number are Roman
Catholic. At the 1984 census, Libya had a population of 3,637,488. The 1997 estimated
population was 5,484,202, giving the country an overall population density of 3 persons per
sq km (8 per sq mi). On the sidelines of the terror attacks on Libya we saw France holding
a summit it dubbed the “Friends of Libya” conference. The sole purpose of this summit was
to legitimize the so-called National Transitional Council and to give the false impression that
the war in Libya is over and done with, that the rebels are the new authority in that country.
The hopelessly useless African Union temporarily woke up from its slumber and refused to
be party to this sham conference, complaining that fighting had not ended, and that UN
Resolution 1973 was about protecting civilians and not attacking them, as the case is with
the situation in Sirte and other cities still controlled by supporters of Muammar Gaddafi. The
AU argues that there should be a ceasefire to allow.
He said that what the United States and European powers want is Libyan oil. “Regardless of
its internal situation, nothing justifies this aggression,” he said in a press conference in
Miraflores Palace, at the end of a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei
LavrovAccording to Chavez, the United States and the forces of the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization have destroyed Libya, and he felt that the drama will start after the collapse of
leader Muammar Gaddafi.He said that those actions are part of the new US strategy of
making people fight one against the other and later bombard and destroy them.Since March
17, 2011, Libya has been subjected to the most brutal imperial air, sea and land assault in
its modern history. Thousands of bombs and missiles, launched from American and
European submarines, warships and fighter planes, are destroying Libyan military bases,
airports, roads, ports, oil depots, artillery emplacements, tanks, armored carriers, planes
and troop concentrations. Hundreds of civilians have been killed in this bombardment.
Dozens of CIA and SAS special forces have been training, advising and mapping targets for
the anti-Gaddafi forces. The US-NATO forces are effectively leading the civil war against the
Gaddafi government.









The key military leaders of the rebel forces are well known to the US government and are
long standing CIA operatives. Khalifa Haftar was appointed chief rebel commander on March
17 on the eve of the beginning of US NATO bombing of Libya. The imperialist media made
out that the rebel forces were indigenous forces whom they didn‟t know much about.

Geography of the Libyan nation:
The Sahara is diagonally split into a western and an eastern half by a series of highlands. In
the West one seldom needs to travel more than 100 kilometers between areas with water
and vegetation, and the whole area is well crises-crossed by desert tracks. The eastern half
is triangular in shape, bordered on the west by the highlands, the Mediterranean on the
north, and the river Nile to the east, it roughly resembles India both in shape and size. This
whole vast area, the Libyan Desert, is totally unfit for human habitation. Its central part is a
place of extreme aridity, there are periods of 20-30 years with no rainfall. This region was
selected by NASA as the earthly region most similar to conditions on Mars during the Viking
lender projects. There is no permanent human habitation, no roads or tracks, just the great
open void.

Climate and hydrology
Coastline of Benghazi in the Cyrenaica, Libya‟s east. Libya has the longest Mediterranean
coastline among African nations with mostly unspoilt beaches.
Within Libya as many as five different climatic zones have been recognized, but the
dominant climatic influences are Mediterranean and Saharan. In most of the coastal
lowland, the climate is Mediterranean, with warm summers and mild winters. Rainfall is
scanty. The weather is cooler in the highlands, and frosts occur at maximum elevations. In
the desert interior the climate has very hot summers and extreme diurnal temperature
ranges. The highest official temperature ever recorded was on 13 September 1922 at
„Aziziya, Libya,but that reading is queried.
Background of the history of Libya:
When France launched Operation Odyssey five months ago, which was immediately to be
joined by Britain and the United States, the zeal to implement an ill-secured UN.
Resolution 1973 was seen by many peace-loving people as brazen aggression targeted at
Libya‟s Muammar Gaddafi, regardless of the mixed feelings about the man.Resolution 1973
was supposedly about protecting Libyan civilians from what the West said was a “pending
genocide,” undoubtedly pending in the minds of Sarkozy, Cameron and Obama, but never
as apparent in Libya itself.
Surprisingly, the propaganda line that Gaddafi was about to carry out a gruesome genocide
in Benghazi was bought by the likes of Noam Chomsky even, a veteran who should know
better about what comes from the lips of US presidents, especially when they are
pronouncing a war. Before long, Operation Odyssey was unsurprisingly taken over by NATO,
and what many regarded as crude aggression by two rogue states was elevated to an
outright terror campaign With the help of NATO aerial firepower, the small group of
Benghazi rebels began to gather courage and began capturing Libyan cities, coercing many
civilians to join their cause or be shot dead; in fact killing as many as 50 000 they accused
of either supporting Muammar Gaddafi or being his spies or mercenaries, especially the dark
skinned citizens of Libya.The statistics are estimates from various independent sources.
Now NATO and the rebels are at the doorstep of Sirte, ready to commit a genocide bigger
than what they said Gaddafi was about to carry out on Benghazi, the very pretext that
allowed Western elite murderers to invite themselves into Libya. If it was Gaddafi at the
doorstep of Benghazi, telling the people in the city to allow him to come in and arrest the
leaders of the insurgence, there is no doubt the US, France and the UK would be bluntly
opposed to such an eventuality arguing that “the will of the people of Libya must be
respected.”

Of course the will of the people of Sirte deserves no respect for its foolishness of opposing
the Western position. But why is it that the will of the people of Sirte is not important to the
murderous Westerners? Why is it that the people of Bani Walid and other cities to the South
of Libya have no right to have their will respected? NATO bombs Tripolians to impose the
will of Benghazi rebels and we are told that is victory for democracy. And the African Union
watches like a kid robbed of his favourite toy by a tormenting bully.
The hopelessly useless African Union temporarily woke up from its slumber and refused to
be party to this sham conference, complaining that fighting had not ended, and that UN
Resolution 1973 was about protecting civilians and not attacking them, as the case is with
the situation in Sirte and other cities still controlled by supporters of Muammar Gaddafi. The
AU argues that there should be a ceasefire to allow negotiations for a peaceful resolution of
the crisis.Jacob Zuma, Goodluck Jonathan and Gabon‟s Ali Bongo Ondimba are the
triumvirate gang of traitors that first betrayed the African cause by rashly voting for
Resolution 1973 without due consideration for possible ramifications, even ignoring the
agreed position of the African Union.
Result of this aggression:
“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living in society, they create for
themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that
glorifies it.” Frederic Bastiat, French thinker (1801-1850).The U.S. and its allies are
preparing for aggression against Syria as part of the U.S.-Israel destabilisation agenda in
the region. The pretext is, as usual, the “protection of civilians” and installing of Western-
style “democracy”. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. The aim is to topple
the current Syrian government and replace it with a puppet government subservient to
U.S.-Israel Zionist interests.It should be noted that because of Syria‟s support for the
Palestinian and Lebanese resistance to Israel‟s terror and Syria‟s ties with Iran, the Syrian
government of President Bashar al-Assad is deemed a ”threat” to U.S. and Israel interests.
Hence, a Syrian regime subservient to U.S.-Israel dictates is vital to isolate Iran. It ignores
Israel‟s Zionist expansion.The ongoing foreign interference in Syria‟s internal affairs is a
reminder of the recent criminal foreign interference in Libya, which began with the
imposition of a “no-fly” zone over Libya that was an illegal military invasion of Libya. Media
reports show that the U.S. and Israel have hired Saudi and Lebanese elements to foment
unrest in Syria, and to create a rift between the government and the Syrian people based
on sectarian divisions.
Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, and Saudi Arabia. None of these countries are model states,
let alone democracies. Their U.S.-installed leaders have betrayed the Palestinians, helped
attack Iraq, support Israel against Lebanon, demolished Libya, and now they conspire
against Syria and its regional allies”. He added “[The Arab League] has been hijacked and
serves Washington and its NATO allies instead of any genuinely Arab interests”. Like the
GCC, the Arab league is a tool of U.S. imperialism. Its shameful act against Syria (a reprise
of its shameful act against Libya) is an act of war against another Arab nation.The most
shameful of all of this is the role of the U.S.-backed Arab despots led by Saudi Arabia,
Qatar, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates.

various independent sources.
After the rebels entered and rampaged Tripoli, of course following in the footsteps of a
devastating NATO team of murderous warplanes, the massive crowds that had earlier been
seen turning out in their hundreds of thousands in support of Gaddafi, defiantly waving
Libya‟s green flag; were all but intimidated into silence by NATO‟s indiscriminate terror
bombings, strategically followed by a newly-assembled group of heavily armed rebels
brandishing brand new high-tech military hardware fresh from American military
warehouses. The rag tag rebels even masqueraded as trained soldiers in their brand new
military fatigues.
We hear the people of Libya want a new dispensation without Gaddafi and one would hope
that the rebels would meet celebrating masses at the gates of Sirte, Tripoli and the other
cities to the West and South of Libya. What we saw were marauding gun trotting goons and
an entirely intimidated population.All we have seen are brutalising NATO terror planes and a
legion of Western armed thugs waiting to destroy the civilians of the cities of the so-called
“Gaddafi loyalists,” should they fail to denounce Gaddafi and support the Benghazi
cause.ionionon But I object to the patronizing assertion that it was all a NATO victory. It is
the old colonialist attitude in a new guise. Of course, these poor, primitive Arabs could not
do anything without the White Man shouldering his burden and rushing to the rescue.
21st century humanity cannot tolerate acts of genocide and mass-murder, wherever they
occur. It cannot look on while dictators butcher their own peoples. The doctrine of
“noninterference in the internal affairs of sovereign states” belongs to the past. We Jews,
who have accused mankind of standing idly by while millions of Jews, including German
citizens, were exterminated by the legitimate German government, certainly owe the world
an answer.I have mentioned in the past that I advocate some form of effective world
governance and expect it to be in place by the end of this century. This would include a
democratically elected world executive that would have military forces at its disposal and
that could intervene, if a world parliament so decides.For this to happen, the United Nations
must be revamped entirely. The veto power must be abolished. It is intolerable that the US
can veto the acceptance of Palestine as a member state, or that Russia and China can veto
intervention in Syria.
Impact on Libyan aggression:
The Libyan aggression has great impact Libyan nation .beside this Parts of the border
between Algeria and Libya have reportedly been closed after Muammar Gaddafi‟s closest
family members were confirmed to have fled to the country.”Especially for Hannibal, if he
fled to Algiers and the Algerian authorities allowed him to do that, we‟ll consider this as an
aggressive act against the Libyan people‟s wish,” Mahmud Shammam, NTC information
minister, said. “We‟re going to use all the means to get him back and try him, put him in a
court and try him. This is our aim. We would give everybody of the Gaddafi family a fair trial
and we can guarantee that.”But Algeria‟s envoy to the United Nations defended the decision
to take in the Gaddafis saying it was a “holy rule of hospitality” to provide assistance.

Mourad Benmehidi told the BBC World Service that his nation had a duty to provide
assistance.
Relations between Algeria and the NTC were strained before the Gaddafi family fled. The
NTC previously accused Algeria of sending mercenaries to fight for Gaddafi, while Algeria‟s
autocratic regime has resisted calls to recognise the legitimacy of the NTC and repressed
protests within its own country. Elsewhere in Libya senior rebel commanders reported that
another of Gaddafi‟s sons, Khamis, had been killed. “We have almost certain information
that Khamis Gaddafi and Abdullah al-Senussi (his intelligence chief) were killed on Saturday
by a unit of the national liberation army during clashes in Tarhouna,” spokesman Ahmed
Bani told Al Arabiya television.Khamis Gaddafi has been reported dead twice before since
the uprisings began earlierthis year, however, and the deaths remain unconfirmed.Nato said
that it hit 35 targets in airstrikes on Monday, including four radar sites and 22 armed
vehicles in Sirte alone.An ammunition storage facility and two command centres near to
Bani Walid were also hit, as were five anti-aircraft artillery sites and other military
installations close to Hun.Sky News reporter Neal Mann said via Twitter that Nato jets were
also seen in the skies above Libya on Tuesday.In other parts of the country the Libyan
people were working to recover from the fighting. In Tripoli, fireworks replaced celebratory
gunfire in Martyrs‟ Square on Monday evening.
Libya‟s leader Muammar Qaddafi has managed to survive and put up fierce resistance for
now half a year against NATO aggression and their Al Qaeda led rebel forces on the ground.
Tripoli is still unsecured, and entire cities still stand firmly in defiance against constant NATO
bombing and multiple attempts by “thousands of rebels” to surround and starve out cities.
Libyans have also now fended off several full fledged assaults by an increasingly
disorganized rebel army on the cities of Sirte and Bani Walid.The cracks are beginning to
show in NATO‟s proxy army, the so-called Libyan rebels hailing from Libya‟s eastern
Cyrenaica region, notorious as the most concentrated recruiting ground for international
terrorism on earth and the home of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), listed as a
foreign terrorist organization by both the US State Department and the UK Home Office. In
recent weeks, it has become impossible for the corporate media and NATO to hide the fact
that the rebels are being led by LIFG commanders. It is also increasingly impossible to hide
these terrorists‟ atrocities as they literally exile or exterminate entire cities.
Conclusion:
We conclude that As the Libyan opposition struggles to take full control of the country, all
eyes are now on the “Friends of Libya” conference in Paris, where delegates from 60
countries, many with various vested interests, will congregate. Even while the dust has yet
to settle, the haste with which companies from NATO countries are scrambling to grab a
share of the dividends of war has caused many to question the true intentions of the
military intervention in Libya. Just days after the capture of the Bab al-Azizya compound in
Tripoli officials of major European countries were reportedly lining up for talks with the
fledgling National Transitional Council to secure lucrative contracts. “What matters now is
the speed,” said Antonio De Capoa, chairman of the Italian-Libyan Chamber of Commerce,
representing Italian companies eager to return to invest in the country as soon as possible.
But for the Libyan people the first priority is for life to return to normal. What they need is
political and social stability, not foreign companies fighting over “lucrative contracts”. Libya
is an independent nation-state as well as a member of the UN and Libya‟s future belongs to
its people. Therefore, the UN, whose Security Council adopted Resolution 1973 on Libya in
March, has the responsibility to take a leading role in the rebuilding process.
It is good to hear that the UN has prepared a plan for bringing an integrated, politically led
mission to Libya and its first aim is to get UN personnel on the ground as quickly as
possible, under a robust Security Council mandate. It should coordinate international efforts

in providing humanitarian aid and other support necessary to the Libyan people, while
guaranteeing Libya against any foreign interference in its sovereignty and territorial
integrity. After the six-month bloodbath, it‟s time for Libya to restore its stability and put a
