News from Libyan Front – July 2, 2011

Post-UN Era
Western countries are no longer content with bribing and threatening other countries to vote to support their will in the UN. Now France admitted that it broke UN weapons embargo and said it can. Next time the embargo may be broken by other countries and the West will not like it.

It is a precedent very similar to Serbia/Kosovo and Georgia/South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Russia warned US not to recognize secession by war of Kosovo (in contradiction of UN principles and the international law) and when the US went ahead anyway because it could, Russia in turn recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia because it could.

This means that UN resolutions and arm embargos lost any meaning.

“That admission prompted Russia, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, to accuse France of a “gross violation” of a U.N. arms embargo. Even France’s NATO allies distanced themselves from the French operation, though Britain and the United States said they believed it was justified under U.N. rules.” It is amazing how much “believing” is in the powerful of this world.

Are French Weapon Drops Arming Al-Qaida?

Algerian foreign minister says that “…Libyan weapons are being trafficked to al-Qaeda, including French arms supplied to rebels battling to oust Muammar Gaddafi. Weapons filtering out of Libya are strengthening al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, which has clashed with security forces in Algeria, Mali, Mauritania and Niger in recent months.”

Does it make sense? Actually, it does. Arming Al-Qaida increases the threat of terrorism which in turn justifies limiting civil rights and sexual attacks by the likes of TSA.

Will Gadhafi Execute a “Kinetic Action” in Europe?

Gadhafi announced that he will move the war (called by the US government a “kinetic action but not war”) to Europe.

“These people (the Libyans) are able to one day take this battle … to Europe, to target your homes, offices, families, which would become legitimate military targets, like you have targeted our homes.”

With thousands of Libyans being given refuge in Europe, the chances are that he has sent a few dozen agents to start a mayhem when he wants to. Whatever Gadhafi is, he is not a coward and the West made sure he has nowhere to run. The last time when the US was messing with him (Reagan’s bombardment that killed Gadhafi’s adopted daughter), Gadhafi did not flinch and downed the PanAm over Lockerbie.

And he would have a right to kill civilians of countries that are killing civilians in his country. He could even call it an operation to “protect civilians” (in Libya).

A few terrorist attacks on train stations in Europe would make the cost of the ideology of “kinetism” quite high.
