Libya Revolution : 1973

Is it coincidence that the No fly zone security council resolution’s number is 1973 !!? It is and it is a strange coincidence. The security council reached to a resolution last night  when 10 countries voted to none against with 5 abstentions “Brazil, China, India, Germany and Russia !!” I do understand why China and Russia refuse to vote but I do not understand the stand of Germany “that stood strongly against Mubarak” or India or Brazil.
The resolution adopts :
  • No Fly zone
  • Protecting the Libyan citizens with all measures ‘ no invasion’
  • Enforcement of the arms embargo to Libya
  • Ban on flights
  • Qaddafi’s regime , banks and companies assets freeze
  • Travel ban on Qaddafi’s loyalists.
Protecting Libyan citizens with all measures article gives a green light to air strikes . France has already declared that it will start its air strike against Qaddafi’s troops in hours. The Qaddafis say that Sarkozy was beggar and he took money from them to help his presidential campaign by the way in their big revelation about France. From a week ago Qaddafi attacked France for recognizing the TNC of Libya.
From hours ago the Qaddafi regime announced an immediate ceasefire , I do not know why I feel something fishy about it. Already there are reportedly clashes in Misurata and Ajdabiya
Heavy Shelling in Misurata
Yesterday the people of Benghazi celebrated as if they won the world cup , this so late resolution came at the right time as Qaddafi hours earlier threatened to storm Benghazi at time promising the revolutionaries to get them “Zenga, Zenga to room , room till the closet !!!”
Qaddafi did not speak on TV but rather on the radio or the phone to some conference in Tripoli and his channels transferred it. It was short and full of nonsense of course but less comic though. Still there is interesting mention about how Libyans are using air forces against each other , I believe he was speaking about that heroic Libyan Kamikaze attempt to kill him. Last Tuesday allegedly Libyan air forces pilot Mokhtar Mohamed Osman received orders to target Misurata and its people , in the air he turned back to Tripoli and crashed his air jet in to the Bab Al-Aziziya complex where Qaddafi and his gang reside.
Late Mokhtar 
Khamis and Al-Saadi
Qaddafi survived but reportedly his sons Al-Saadi and Khamis were badly injured and were admitted to the hospital with dangerous burns. Khamis Qaddafi's units committed war crimes already against the Libyan people in this month. Al Saadi as far as I know escaped by a miracle from Benghazi during the early days of its liberation by the revolutionaries.
On the same night Qaddafi appeared later on TV in another terrible speech to prove to the world that he was still alive and kicking , nevertheless he was shaken. The Libyan TV made sure to hint that this speech was from Bab Al Aziziyah
Qadddafi speech on March 15th
Many people in the Arab world are waiting for that brave Libyan man that will pull the trigger to bring peace to the world.
Speaking about TV channels and media the Nile Sat co. said that it can’t suspend Qaddafi’s channels except by court order from Egypt !!? I do not get why we have tolerate his channels when his intelligence is jamming whole channel bouquets in Nile sat with no respect to Egypt !!
Egypt’s stand from the security council’s resolution is complete support despite the fact it will not participate in the air strikes. Still international press is insisting that Egypt is helping the revolutionaries with military aid. Interesting enough there is a rumor in the block that Hilary Clinton asked Tantawy to use our bases to launch air strikes against Libya but the field marshal refused and thank God he did.
The ministry of foreign affairs in Egypt announced that officially 50 Egyptians have returned back to Egypt from Libya as dead bodies after being killed by Qaddafi troops. There are reports coming that Egyptians are being tortured and killed while all the Egyptians that have been repatriated so far are not more than 200,000. Already the decline of refugees from foreign nationalities crossing the borders of Tunisia and Egypt is not good as the UN and UNCHR are scared that Qaddafi could have been using foreign expats  human shields.
Hopefully  the red cross medical convey will return back after the security council resolution as it has left Benghazi after the stupid warnings of Qaddafi. Despite some will consider it a cowardly act from the side of the famous humanitarian organization yet you must know that medical volunteers and paramedics are facing huge danger in Libya from the Qaddafi troops.
19 years old Abdel Khalek El-Sayid is an Egyptian paramedic volunteer who came from Al Tahrir square to Libya to help the Libyan people in their revolution. He was captured in an ambush that killed 3 other Egyptians and next thing we know he appeared on the Libyan TV twice as Egyptian soldier recruited by Al Qaeda and that he was on drugs !!!!!!!
Libya : The arrest of Egyptian soldier from Al Qaeda
Hopefully after the ceasefire and UN resolution he will be released along other Egyptians in capture.
The situation in Libya is not that great and I think with the order of No fly zone , the Egyptian-Libyan and the Tunisian-Libyan borders must be open 24 hours for aids , I will not even speak about the Algerian-Libyan borders because the regime in Algeria is supporting Qaddafi just the like the Syrian regime. Already the two countries refused to vote on the No fly zone decision in the League of Arab states .
Khamis with Algerian President Boutflika
There are very alarming news that the Qaddafi troops used chemical weapons against the people in Misurata . Already there was a video on YouTube showing some dead bodies believed to have traces of chemical weapons but unfortunately the website’s administration removed the video due to its extreme graphic content. It is worth to mention that already the revolutionaries found chemical weapons at the HQs of Qaddafi’s troops in the city.
Chemical weapons found at Misurata
Here are photos from Libya extremely graphic showing kids and babies killed by Qaddafi. Here is also a video for a baby leaving the hospital to the cemetery.

Here  is extremely graphic video Ajdabiya’s hospital showing kids , youth and elder injured and killed by Qaddafi’s troops.
Gaddafi bombing of Ajdabiya
FYI the UN and the international community are responsible for this massacre committed against the Libyan people for a month now with slow terrible steps.  Before I end , there must be an investigation on which countries , regimes and arms companies helping Qaddafi. The Syrian and Algerian regimes are not only involved in this massacre against their own brother people but also the old enemies of Qaddafi seemed to be involved as well. Ehud Barack did not confirm or deny these allegations in the Knesset and Qaddafi justified his attack on his own people with the War on Gaza and the right of Israel to defend itself against militants.

  1. German people do not want another military incursion especially after their willy-nilly participation in Afghanistan. They don't mind if other countries enforce the NWZ but they don't want to be part of it..at least militarily wise, this has nothing to do with oil. note:Most Germany fuel needs come from Russia, Germany doesn't really need Libyan oil as you seem to insinuate. That UNSC position and Merkel's decision represents the German people.

  3. The Russians were very clear in their statement as the resolution goes beyond what the Arab league has called for in 'taking all necessary measures' which can end in troops on the ground, this is what the Arab league objected to and Russia has said if the resolution was limited to the no-fly zone it would have approved. be grateful they didn't veto it.

  4. When was the picture of president BOUTFLIKA and Khamis taken? what year? i don't think it was taken few days or few weeks ago! You are such a cheat and an hypocrite.

  5. the reason behind germanys refusal to an internvention is as mentioned above added to the fact that there is a municipal elections coming up soon. an election that could be affected by Germnays participation in an another war.

    India and Brazil are both emerging powers with aspirations to get a seat as permanent members in the security council. For this, they would of course would not want to alienate either side of the other veto-powers (US,FRA, and UK on one hand and China and Russia on the other). Obama is scheduled to visit Brazil in the coming month and is expected to give his support (at least this is what the brasilians think) to Brazil as a permanent leader as he did during his visit in India in november.

  7. When AmnEdawla tortures Egyptians, then you think the Amy must interfere to restor ELKarama. But when Quadafi tortures, kill in cold blood Egyptians, you thin "Elhamd l'lelah that the Army does not want to interfere". Any self respecting country and poeple would be outraged and would interfere to protect their citizens.

  9. Solution Libya (next -> Resolution No. 1973 of the Security Council of the United Nations)

    (3/23/2011, me and Development Programme UNDP United Nations; Le Thanh Duc 39 - 'Ngu Hai' - Vinh City)

    'Coalition' 'Resolution 1973 of the United Nations' conflict and prevent violence against civilians.

    Strategy (continued):

    1 - 'coalition' - used (only) 'aircraft - the type monitored' supervision Libya.

    a / - if 'Gadhafi government troops' use 'weapons' (heavy), such as tanks, artillery ... 'Allied forces' use 'jet' and 'missile': destruction.

    b / - If: (repeat) occur 'conflicts - the Civil War' -> catastrophic 'ordinary people':

    (When) a 'city' (or where): (continued) fighting took place -> 'coalition forces' use (group' infantry) 'landing': 'measures' to prevent (stop - both sides) - > then taking the (campaign)

    Campaign (each place): (can) a day, a few days ... (optional) 'need time' (infantry) are present (there). Finished campaigns: withdrawal - 'instant' (group of soldiers) from Libya (the ground).

    c / - 'infantry groups' implementation 'campaign' - to mobilize (from):

    + Warships; or

    + Countries' (near) to 'garrison' (temporary). When 'Mr. Gadhafi' 'resigned acceptance' -> 'troops' (where) retreat - 'instant' (end).

    2 - The United Nations shall:

    a / - Implementation: 'work' (humanitarian) with people.

    b / - Promotion (all - the forces, factions ...) ceasefire. Negotiations 'establishment' 'Libyan authorities' new.

    'Libyan government forces' (old) are allowed to 'join', 'son' of 'Mr. Gadhafi' allowed 'to participate' ('government of national reconciliation' new).

    ReplyDelete
  10. 3 - 'Mr. Gadhafi' not 'involved' 'new government', because:

    a / - (number of) 'the protesters' - 'object' many (previously).

    b / - Army 'Mr. Gadhafi' used 'mercenaries' lot. Country by the military people (consensus 'participation' - protection).

    c / - 'Mr. Gadhafi' leaders 'long', not the 'trend' 'human progress', lack of 'democracy'. Countries China, Russia, Venezuela ... (also) did not support - 'leaders' 'holding power' for many years and did not vote.

    d / - 'Mr. Gadhafi' no 'response' interests' (most of) the people (protesters: life).
    'Mr. Gadhafi' must go and the 'private property' (property right). The 'other assets': the 'people of Libya' - reconstruction using 'country'.


    4 - With time, if:

    - 'Mr. Gadhafi' not resign.

    - 'Conflict - hinder': 'the new government set up' - 'disaster' the people '.

    - Preventing 'the protesters' or 'oppose' (method).


    Will: 'use' group 'elite soldiers' arrest Mr.Gadhafi. Reason 'arrest' 'Mr. Gadhafi': 'International Court of Justice' will (then) to investigate: 'Mr. Gadhafi' attack 'protesters'.

    (When) - start 'Mr. Gadhafi', will:

    - 'New government' and 'the people': the decision; or

    - The countries with the United Nations perspective, 'Mr. Gadhafi' 'yes or no' exile.

    5 - 'democracy' - the executable (right), will:

    The people of Libya - receptive: 'method' produce 'progress' and 'operating state' ('election'). Unlike 'old regime' - 'mode' poor production; income people - divided by 'oil' (mostly). People required: good labor rights.

    Democracy: The 'resource' is fine - not the 'dominant' (to: management and procurement; transparency). At that time, Russia, America, China, France ... not 'influence'.

    EU: production methods, management of social progress -> Libya cooperation: transfer of 'technology'. Geographic locations: Libya near Europe -> exchange efficiency.

    'Gadhafi personally' threat reduction 'security - peace' in Europe: the European People's struggling (to prevent threats).


    UN: discussion (all countries) - 5 points (as above) -> execute 'peace and human progress', 'Libya happy people'.

  12. In response to an earlier comment ... "German people do not want another military incursion especially after their willy-nilly participation in Afghanistan."

    I suggest it is simple German politics.

    Why, then, has Germany been so adamant in its opposition to the Libya intervention?

    The answer begins with the fact that two competing narratives of history are currently jostling for supremacy in German politics—each of which presents a dramatically different approach to the memories of World War II and the Cold War. One important thing to note about these narratives is that they are not simple matters of left and right: They cross both ideological and party lines.

    The first narrative downplays the connection between force and freedom. It deemphasizes the fact that only Allied arms defeated the Nazi regime, while tending to accentuate the role of Willy Brandt’s Ostpolitik, the West German and West European peace movements, and Mikhael Gorbachev’s perestroika and glasnost as the causes of the end of the Cold War. In some accounts, the hard line taken by the Western alliance before and during the 1980s and the role of Eastern European dissidents who delegitimized Communist ideology get less attention or are mentioned only as factors that endangered peace. (Ostpolitik left Germany for Norway to escape Nazi persecution.)

    German public opinion, meanwhile, seems to have settled into an awkward place somewhere between these two competing narratives. According to a poll while 62 percent of Germans supported the use of military force against Qaddafi, only 29 percent supported participation by German troops. Germans, in other words, seem to accept that force can be necessary to avert catastrophe; but they don’t want to use it themselves.

    For many decades, the world feared a Germany that forgot its Nazi past or had visions of reviving old dreams of empire. But as Berlin’s current stance makes clear, the true problem—at least for those of us who believe that overseas intervention is sometimes necessary—is not that Germans fail to remember the past; it’s that a particular interpretation of the past (and present) has led one side in this debate to entertain illusions about the diminished role of force in international affairs and thus to rigidly oppose its use for humanitarian ends.

    I suggest it is simple German politics.

  14. In response to an earlier comment ... "The Russians were very clear in their statement as the resolution … be grateful they didn't veto it.”

    I suggest it is simple Russian politics. Russia has decided to prevaricate and sit on the fence.

    With only a year to go until presidential elections, the apparent spat will be appreciated by undernourished “tandemologists,” but various other incoherencies in Libya policy. Russia is clearly in a very awkward position. What is also very clear is that the signals
    Moscow is sending are ambivalent, incoherent and even slightly embarrassing.

    Russian President Medvedev, however, has publicly voiced skepticism over the rush to war with Gaddafi, and Russia’s abstention from the UN vote allows Moscow to disavow any responsibility for the military operation, if it were to go wrong.

    Abstention in the vote for UN Resolution 1973 was an appropriate choice for Russia. One should remember that Gaddafi and his war have cost Russia major economic losses. Starting with the forgiveness of a multi-billion dollar debt that Russia granted to the immensely wealthy Gaddafi and his not-less-wealthy government, and on to the unrealized revenue from various Russian projects in Libya, which have been postponed sine die and may not restart in any near future. Economically, Russia at present is a net loser in the Libyan upheaval.

    Russia is tacitly accepting the use of force by not exercising its veto power in the UNSC for political gain with a position that opens the door for intervention, but allows Russia to distance itself from the West.

    The Russian Foreign Ministry condemned air strikes on Libya mandated by a UN resolution, despite the fact that Russia abstained from the vote. Moscow continues to send ambivalent signals on Libya, as it wrestles with conflicting policy priorities.

    Medvedev has condemned abuses committed by the Muammar Gaddafi regime in the raging civil war and also signed off on the initial UN arms embargo on Libya that cost Russia in excess of $4 billion in lost arms contracts. This latter move suggested that Russia’s disapproval of Gaddafi’s regime superseded its non-interventionism. Moreover, unlike Russia’s past noisy opposition to the Iraq and Kosovo interventions, Moscow gave no clear indication which way it would go on the Libya question.

    The ethical dimension of Medvedev’s condemnation of the Gaddafi regime had hinted that the Kremlin was leaning toward the international mainstream. But at the same time, Russia’s old mantra of non-interference in the domestic affairs of foreign countries appears to jar with the measures being imposed by the international community. Russia has watched all the uprisings spreading through North Africa and the Middle East with unease simply because of its policy belief in the ascendancy of stability over democracy – values often touted as mutually exclusive.

    The second component is that Russia has very strong worries about every revolutionary change. It would suggest that there is a counter-revolutionary coalition in the making with countries like China, Russia and Saudi Arabia. From Russia’s perspective, what is happening in Bahrain is perfectly fine, and what has happened in Egypt is a matter of concern. The ironfisted quelling of an uprising in Bahrain last week brought little disapproval from Russia, while Moscow watched the overthrow of Egypt President Hosni Mubarak with unease.

    To talk about double standards is wrong. Russia has firmly undertaken a policy of neutrality. Russia’s position may be one of pragmatic non-interference.

    Russia hopes to benefit from the double political dividend of not being associated with the “Western” intervention in the Muslim world. Not only will the intervention drive up the price of oil, but it may also increase – relative to the West – Russia’s image in the Arab world. The Arab world appears to now be taking a dimmer view of the intervention too.

    I suggest it is simple Russian politics. Russia has decided to prevaricate and sit on the fence.
