A New Motto for NATO
After Libya, maybe NATO needs a motto, to help give it a sense of direction: now that it has left behind the old-fashioned North Atlantic Treaty of 1949. How about something like,
‘It is from Us that the all-embracing Terror proceeds’
- from Article 9 of the Protocols of Zion.
‘Bringing democracy’ to Tripoli

‘High-class terrorists running US, UK and France’ Russia Today
As some European leaders demonstrate a celebratory mood over the violent death of Colonel Gaddafi, they are no less terrorists themselves, claims international consultant and author Adrian Salbuchi.
Salbuchi said Gaddafi’s death was undoubtedly a message for the whole world, as it is not just about Libya.
“We are seeing how Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State expressed it very clearly: ‘We came, we saw, he died,’ and then started laughing. This is a message to the world of how this new world order model actually works,” he stated.“When they decide to change the regime, they do so with the utmost violence, and it is a whole model.
* First they target a country by calling it a rogue state;
* then they support local terrorists and call them freedom fighters;
* then they bring death and destruction upon civilians and they call it UN sanctions.
* Then they spread lies and call it the International Community’s opinion expressed by the Western media.
* Then they invade and control the country and call it liberation and finally they steal appetizing oil and call it foreign investment and reconstruction.”
At the moment Western powers are hailing a democratic future for Libya. When Saddam Hussein was captured in 2003 the US also thought it was all over – but it had only just begun. And according to Salbuchi, it is going to be the same, or even worse, for Libya. He explained:
I think one of the reasons why Gaddafi’s country has been invaded and he has been killed is because he had plans to introduce the gold dinar as a golden currency that could very easily have become a major currency at least in North Africa and in the oil market,” he said. “Don’t forget Libya has the ninth-largest oil reserve in the world and the main oil reserve in all of Africa, so I think this definitely smells of oil and greed on the part of Western companies. They are just using this to justify they have supported the worst terrorists probably because in the White House and Palais de l’Élysée in France, and at 10 Downing Street, we also have very high-class terrorists and mafias running those countries and the better part of the world .
Eyewitness testimony of journalist Lizzy Phelan was probably the best refutation of NATO lies - alas, all her videos have been removed from the web (October 2011), plus her website has been taken down. Let’s hope she is still alive.
(For earlier comments by Salbuci on fabricated terror in Argentina, see here.)
Under Gaddafi, Libya enjoyed the highest life-expectancy of any African country, a free health-care system, an education system that was free right up to tertiary level, free water and electricity, one of the lowest infant mortality rates and one of the highest GDP per capita on the Continent. He helped re-form the old OAU into the African Union, and launched the African Dinar that would have been backed by African gold. But, even beyond these things, he brought fresh water from under the desert to the cities! Under the Libyan desert, lies the world’s largest ‘aquifer of fossil water’ – and Ghadafy tapped into it:
This incredibly huge and successful water scheme is virtually unknown in the West, yet it rivals and even surpasses all our greatest development projects. The leader of the so-called advanced countries, the United States of America cannot bring itself to acknowledge Libya’s Great Man-Made River. The West refuses to recognize that a small country, with a population no more than four million, can construct anything so large without borrowing a single cent from the international banks.
Soon after destroying this, NATO bombed the one repair factory for the pipeline, so no-one could mend it.
As well as that, he was also instrumental in getting an African satellite launched, in 2007, paying 75% of its initial costs, so that the continent of Africa would not have to pay huge sums to the West for making phone calls.
Watch an interview with a young Libyan about his country, who describes the war as simply a NATO invasion, with the so-called rebels being directed by NATO:
The Source of Terror
The North Atlantic Terrorist Organisation has conducted a Blitzkrieg against Libya, which has bombed it back into the Stone Age.
The BBC News had a smiling reporter from Tripoli commenting on how great the British Apache attack-helicopters will be. NATO troops are bombing a major capital city of Africa – which she describes as, ‘humanitarian intervention’. She omits to mention that cluster bombs are being used against residential areas of Tripoli - prohibited under international law. She keeps reiterating one person’s name ‘Ghadafy, Ghadafy’ as the ‘enemy’, as was done with Saddam Hussein. How many thousand bombing raids were conducted? There were nightly NATO air strikes against Western Libya since March 19th.
Our hero Cynthia McKinney was in Tripoli, and described the trauma experienced by the inhabitants of Tripoli from the empire’s assault: Nato’s feast of blood, and Anatomy of a Murder: How NATO Murdered Qaddafi Family Members. Africans were given no say in whether they want this Western ‘humanitarian’ intervention.
The original pretext to the invasion, that Ghadafi was ‘attacking his own people’, turned out (not surprisingly) to have no truth in it: they just made it up! Nato is now a headless killer, unconstrained by international law. In a fine interview of Cynthia McKinney talking with Alex Jones she comments on ‘active Israeli intervention’ in Benghazi – ‘Israelis are on the ground’ to help organise the rebels. Hang on, they’re not NATO members are they? The U.N. Security Council resolution provided no authorization for the use of armed force.
Libya was the ‘crown of Africa’ and was moving towards developing a pan-African currency: which the Empire did not desire. ‘A shining jewel of development’ – as Alex Jones called it, in his interview with Cynthia.
My book ToT recommends Tierry Meyssan’s ‘Voltaire Network’ for its vision and integrity. His account from Libya tells who is creating terror, deliberately and intentionally.
Before NATO and the U.S. started bombing Libya, the United Nations was preparing to bestow an award on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, and the Libyan Jamahiriya, for its achievements in the area of human rights. Here is a senstence from the General Assembly’s award:
“Several delegations also noted with appreciation the country’s commitment to upholding human rights on the ground. Additional statements, which could not be delivered during the interactive dialogue, owing to time constraints, will be posted on the extranet of the universal periodic review when available.
In a footnote of that report, there is a list of countries that praised Colonel Gaddafi and the Libyan Jamahiriya (state of the masses), in support of the General Assembly Human Rights Council’s decision to bestow this award upon Colonel Gaddafi.
It would have been given in March, so the date for the invasion was clearly chosen to prevent this.
Aftermath – the desolate future:
“If events of the past few days are anything to go by, the UN-NATO insurgent allies are set to bring a grim, lawless, murderous and fundamentalist future to the “New Libya.” Polygamy is set to return as the disenfranchisement of women, the West’s new friend and interim leader, Mr Jalil has declared. (He didn’t put it quite like that, but the particular interpretation of Sharia Law he espouses, does.)
“A country which had health, education and welfare services of which most could only dream(i) is also set to instantly revert fifty years. Flying King Idris’ flag, Libya is being plunged seamlessly back to his era of illiteracy and neglect. It will not get better. Britain is already demanding that bombarded, bereaved, largely broken Libya, pay compensation for its “liberation.” No, not satire, see:ii.
“Libya also has its very own Falluja, in the fled, dead and now destroyed city of Sirte, flooded, ruined and heart rending. It also has its own Basra Roads. See the melted, bombed vehicles leaving Sirte and across Libya. Those inside them also melted or vaporized, a mirror image of that 1991 US massacre of the fleeing in Iraq. Soon Libya will also have its own living memorials to their release from free healthcare, gasoline too cheap to meter and the highest living standard in Africa: deformed babies from the radioactive and chemically toxic depleted uranium weapons which rained down on them. Another mirror image of Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balkans where these weapons were also used.
