Gaddafi urges violent showdown and tells Libya 'I'll die a martyr'
2/22/11 Ian Black , Middle East editor, http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/feb/22/muammar-gaddafi-urges-violen...
Muammar Gaddafi set the stage for a violent, final showdown to crush Libya 's popular uprising by urging loyalists to take to the streets to fight "greasy rats" in the pay of enemies ranging from the US to al-Qaida...Gaddafi played deliberately on fears of division, foreign occupation and civil war and Somalia-like state collapse.... Speaking in front of the Tripoli compound bombed by US in 1986, he invoked the spirit of resistance against foreign powers... warned that the US would occupy Libya like Afghanistan... wanted to turn Libya into an Islamic state. They deserved the death penalty, he said ...Citing reports of the use of machine guns, snipers and aircraft against civilians the UN human rights chief called for the "immediate cessation of grave human rights violations committed by Libyan authorities" ... William Hague , Britain's foreign secretary, scorned Gaddafi's claim of a conspiracy of world leaders against him. "There is no such conspiracy," he said. Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, called the speech "very frightening"...the UN Security Council in New York condemned the use of violence and called for those responsible for attacks on civilians to be held to account,

Foreign secretary, William Hague, and his opposite numbers from the 21-nation Libya contact group, endorsed Qatar's position....Gaddafi's government has repeatedly complained that the Qataris are supplying the rebels.., the rebels have been shipping crates of weapons, including Kalashnikovs, rocket-propelled grenades and ammunition, to the besieged city of Misrata coming under daily attack by Gaddafi's forces...Rebels warned of an impending "massacre" if NATO fails to step up attacks on government forces in and around the city. Khaled Kayim, Libya's deputy foreign minister, claimed about 20 Qatari specialists are already in Benghazi. The emir of Qatar is the only Arab leader to recognise the interim national council in Benghazi. Misrata, Libya's third biggest city, the only rebel holdout in the west of the country, has been under siege for more than six weeks. Aid agencies have warned of a desperate humanitarian situation, with acute shortages of medicines, food and water....US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in Berlin, said "atrocities" were unfolding in Misrata. "We are taking actions to respond, and those responsible will be held accountable."

Qatar admits sending hundreds of troops to support Libya rebels
Qatar will also lead libyan international military efforts ...
10/26 Ian Black, http://news.yahoo.com/cias-covert-iraq-mission-044800908.html
Qatar admitted for the first time it sent hundreds of troops to support the Libyan rebels who overthrew Muammar Gaddafi's regime. The Gulf state had previously acknowledged only that its air force took part in NATO -led attacks. The revelation came as Qatar hosted a conference on the post-Gaddafi era attended by the leader of Libya 's ruling National Transitional Council, Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, who described the Qataris as having planned the battles that paved the way for victory.
Abdel-Jalil also said he askd NATO to extend its mission beyond the end of the month when it was due to end, until the end of the year... because regime loyalists posed a threat from neighbouring countries, he said...
Qatar will also lead international efforts to train the Libyan military, collect weapons and integrate rebel units into newly-established military and security institutions seen by the UN and western governments as the key challenge facing the NTC.
Qatar played a key role in galvanising Arab support for the UN security council resolution in March that mandated NATO to defend Libyan civilians. It also delivered weapons and ammunition on a large scale – without any clear legal basis. There were repeated rumours about and occasional sightings of Qatari special forces in Libya during the war. Until now, however, there had been no official confirmation of actions not explicitly authorised by the UN. Qatari chief-of-staff, Major-General Hamad bin Ali al-Atiya, said: "...the numbers of Qataris on ground were hundreds in every region. Training and communications had been in Qatari hands. Qatar…supervised the rebels' plans because they are civilians and did not have enough military experience...We acted as the link between the rebels and NATO forces."
Qatari special forces are reported to have provided infantry training to Libyan fighters in the western Nafusa mountains and in eastern Libya. Qatar's military even brought Libyan rebels back to Doha for exercises. And in the final assault on Gaddafi's Bab al-Aziziya compound in Tripoli in late August, Qatari special forces were on the frontline. Qatar also gave $400m to the rebels, helped them export oil from Benghazi and set up a TV station in Doha. Qatar, whose gas reserves and tiny population make it one of the richest countries in the world, has long pursued an activist foreign policy – promoted by al-Jazeera, the Doha-based satellite TV channel [not to mention it's sponsor USA]...

Gaddafi website publishes 'last will' of Libyan ex-leader
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-1542084
Muammar Gaddafi's website, Seven Days News, has published the last will of the deceased former leader of Libya...reportedly handed to three of his relatives, one of whom was killed, the second arrested and the third managed to escape the fighting in Sirte. In his will, Gaddafi urged Libyans to fight on
English translation:
"This is my will. I, Muammar bin Mohammad bin Abdussalam bi Humayd bin Abu Manyar bin Humayd bin Nayil al Fuhsi Gaddafi, do swear that there is no other God but Allah and that Mohammad is God's Prophet, peace be upon him. I pledge that I will die as Muslim. Should I be killed, I would like to be buried, according to Muslim rituals, in the clothes I was wearing at the time of my death and my body unwashed, in the cemetery of Sirte, next to my family and relatives. I would like that my family, especially women and children, be treated well after my death. The Libyan people should protect its identity, achievements, history and the honourable image of its ancestors and heroes. The Libyan people should not relinquish the sacrifices of the free and best people. I call on Libyans to continue the resistance, and fight any foreign aggressor against Libya, today, tomorrow and always.
Let the free people of the world know that we could have bargained over and sold out our cause in return for a personal secure and stable life. We received many offers to this effect but we chose to be at the vanguard of the confrontation as a badge of duty and honour.Even if we do not win immediately, we will give a lesson to future generations that choosing to protect the nation is an honour and selling it out is the greatest betrayal that history will remember forever despite the attempts of the others to tell you otherwise."

Muammar Gaddafi 'buried in secret in desert grave at dawn'
10/25/11 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-15441867
The bodies of ex-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, his son Mutassim and a top aide have been buried in secret in the desert, Libyan officials say.
Gaddafi, Mutassim and former Defence Minister Abu Bakr Younis Jabr were killed Thursday following the fall of Sirte, the last major pro-Gaddafi bastion.
Islamic tradition dictates a burial should happen within a day of the death. But NTC leadership was concerned any public grave could become a shrine for Gaddafi loyalists or a target of hatred for those who opposed his regime, our correspondent says.In the end, she adds, the decomposition of the body meant the NTC had to act.
Witnesses said the decomposing bodies had been removed late on Monday from the meat storage warehouse in Misrata where they had been on display...
"Our job is finished," a security guard at the warehouse, Salem al Mohandes, told the Arabic television station al-Jazeera. "[Gaddafi] was transferred and the military council of Misrata took him away to an unknown location."
Questions have been raised over the former leader's death after video footage showed him alive at the time of capture. Officials said he had been killed subsequently in a crossfire. Acting Libyan leader Mustafa Abdul Jalil said the NTC had formed a committee to investigate the circumstances surrounding his death..

Signs of ex-rebel atrocities in Libya grow
By CBS News correspondent Allen Pizzey, .http://www.uruknet.de/?s1=2&p=82581&s2=26
Nearly 300 bodies, many with their hands tied behind their backs and shot in the head, have been collected from across Sirte and buried in a mass grave. The new government has been slow to confront allegations of atrocities by rebel fighters, despite repeated calls for them to do so. "You have to bear in mind that these young man have seen their friends killed in front of them, who saw their cities burned... I am amazed at their self-restraint," said Ali Tarhouni, oil minister [ed: UW, Seattle economics lecturer until US recruited him for NTC leadership]...

President Obama On Announcement of Death of Libya's Qadhafi
20 October 2011
THE PRESIDENT: Today, the government of Libya announced the death of Muammar Qaddafi. This marks the end of a long and painful chapter for the people of Libya, who now have the opportunity to determine their own destiny in a new and democratic Libya. For four decades, the Qaddafi regime ruled the Libyan people with an iron fist. Basic human rights were denied. Innocent civilians were detained, beaten and killed. And Libya's wealth was squandered. The enormous potential of the Libyan people was held back, and terror was used as a political weapon. Today, we can definitively say that the Qaddafi regime has come to an end...Faced with the potential of mass atrocities -- and a call for help from the Libyan people -- the United States, our friends and allies stopped Qaddafi's forces in their tracks...

"... Obama took out Gaddafi by proxy, as Libyan forces routed the dictator’s protectors and took full control of the country.

An Open Door in Libya

The Libyan people have every reason to rejoice at Gadhafi's death His death is a clear opening to a much brighter future for the 6 million people who live in Libya. It should also help keep Libya from falling victim to a protracted insurgency led by those loyal to the old regime. By depriving his supporters of their central rallying point, Gadhafi's death reduces the chances they'll be able to organize effectively to take up arms against the new government...

‘Thank You, America!’ By Nicholas D. Kristof, http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/01/opinion/kristof-from-libyans-thank-you...
President Obama took a huge political risk in Libya. Pro-Americanism now is ubiquitous. The lesson is that on rare occasions military force can advance human rights. Libya has so far been a model of such an intervention...The question of humanitarian intervention, one of the knottiest in foreign policy, will arise again. The next time it does, let's remember a lesson of Libya: It is better to inconsistently save some lives than to consistently save none....

Anytime a dictator dies looking like a coward, it undercuts his claim to be a martyr. Had he died at the hands of Western forces, Arabs might embrace Qaddafi’s martyrdom more, but because he died at the hands of his own people, he’s just one more failed Arab dictator.

Gaddafi’s Rule: Facts
from http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article29524.htm, http://orwellwasright.wordpress.com/2011/10/25/gaddafis-death-celebratin...
One of the myths about the 42 year Gaddafi regime is that it was utterly brutal and repressive, all lived in fear of disappearing into his torture dungeons or being executed while poverty and despair were the facts of daily life...An examination of the facts, however, presents a very different picture.
In 2009, Libya sat at the top of the table for Africa on the Human Development Index. According to the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization Libya “has made strides in public health, since 1980, child mortality rates have dropped from 70 per thousand live births to 19 in 2009. Life expectancy has risen from 61 to 74 years of age during the same span of years.” Here are some statistics from the World Health Organization in the same year: (ed: compare with U.S.)

Total life expectancy at birth (years)                      72.3
Male life expectancy at birth (years)                       70.2
Female life expectancy at birth (years)                  74.9
Newborns with low birth weight (%)                         4.0
Children underweight (%)                                             4.8
Perinatal mortality rate per 1000 total births      19
Neonatal mortality rate                                             11.0
Infant mortality rate (per 1000 live births)           14.0
Under five mortality rate (per 1000 live births)  20.1
Maternal mortality ratio (per 10000 live births) 23

The WHO described Libya’s public health care prior to Operation Odyssey Dawn in the following terms: “Health care is available to all citizens free of charge by the public sector. The country boasts the highest literacy and educational enrollment rates in North Africa. The Government is substantially increasing the development budget for health services…” Similarly, UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics demonstrates a high literacy rate of 89% (99% for the youth), a primary school enrollment rate of 97%, while according to the World Bank , “In a relative short period of time, Libya achieved universal access for primary education, with 98% gross enrollment for secondary, and 46% for tertiary education. In the past decade, girls’ enrollment increased by 12% in all levels of education.”
None of the above squares with the idea perpetuated by politicians and media that Gaddafi had no support in Libya. Indeed, footage of one pro-Gaddafi march held after the NATO bombing had begun shows the exact opposite–over 1.5 million people took to the streets....ignored by the Western press:
As for the alleged crimes against humanity, which formed the backbone of the case for “intervention”, you can read my exchange with the International Criminal Court and overview of the evidence presented here , since which, further evidence has emerged which appears to confirm that these accusations were largely fabricated .

Back in spring I had a brief exchange with the International Criminal Court, requesting the evidence for their accusations against Gaddafi of committing crimes against humanity towards his people. The response and “evidence” presented was less than convincing ... in addition to what appears to be fabricated ICC evidence, the CIA was also using “Libyan expatriates” to engineer consent for regime change, much as they did in 2002-3 in build-up to the invasion of Iraq.

NATO may stay in Libya longer than planned - U.S. defense chief
http://en.rian.ru/trend/libya_after_gaddafi_2011
NATO was planning to wind down its Libya operation by October 31...the decision was approved during a NATO council meeting Friday, with the formal statement expected this week. Panetta told journalists during his visit to Japan Tuesday that Libya’s ruling National Transitional Council wanted NATO to extend its mission. "I noticed today there were comments from some of the Libya leadership asking NATO continue its mission as they try to establish some of their governance," CNN quoted the U.S. minister as saying...the United States is looking at its long-term relations with Libya's military he said...
The U.S.-led [AFRICOM too revealing of US agenda] military operation in Libya began March 19. [US] NATO took control of the operation March 31. Gaddafi...was buried in a secret grave in the Libyan desert Tuesday. He died after being captured alive by National Transitional Council fighters near his home town of Sirte last week.

"and a seamless transition of control operations to US AFRICOM"
US AFRICOM general sees end to Libya NATO mission
10/3/11 http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/feedarticle/9876079
The military mission in Libya is largely complete and NATO's involvement could begin to wrap up as soon as this coming week after allied leaders meet in Brussels, according to the top U.S. commander for Africa. Army Gen. Carter Ham, head of U.S. Africa Command, told the AP NATO could decide to end the mission even though ousted leader Moammar Gadhafi is still at large and his forces are still entrenched in strongholds such as Sirte and Bani Walid. ... Ham said the National Transitional Council and its forces should be in "reasonable control" of population centers before the end of the NATO mission Unified Protector....they are close to that now. When NATO makes its decision, Ham said he believes there will be a seamless transition of control over the air and maritime operations to U.S. Africa Command....and some of military surveillance coverage would remain in place. U.S. intelligence and surveillance assets, such as drones, will likely stay in the region also to keep watch over weapons caches and prevent the proliferation of weapons from neighboring countries.
NATO took over command of the mission in March, after it was initially led by U.S. AFRICOM in the early days of the bombing campaign...
The aggressive bombing runs that battered Gadhafi forces, weapons, air control, and other key targets, gave the revolutionary forces the time and breathing room to organize and begin to push into regime strongholds. A key turning point came about a month ago when the fighters were able to seize the capital, Tripoli, effectively ending Gadhafi's rule. Now, the National Transitional Council has taken over the leadership of the nation and is promising to set up its new interim government, even as it continues to fight forces still loyal to the fugitive leader. Ham said NATO need not wait until Gadhafi is found and forced out of the country before ending the Libyan mission....
The goal now, said Ham, is for the U.S. to eventually establish a normal, military-to-military relationship with Libya, including embassy staff and what security assistance the Libyans might want... he doesn't see a major U.S. role in training or other military assistance, because other Arab nations are better suited for that. He said the U.S. may be able to help re-establish Libya's Coast Guard and maritime domain....that any U.S. military footprint in the country would remain small...

U.S. Military on 'High Alert'
10/23 http://abcnews.go.com/International/story?id=82296&page=1
ABCNEWS has learned that U.S. military personnel in three critical locations have been put on the very highest state of alert after being warned of potential terrorist attacks.
At the U.S. Air Force installation at * Incirlik, Turkey, officials say “credible” and “specific” warnings have been received. The level of credibility about the warning is so high, that “even the Turks believe it,” one source told ABCNEWS...Details are being closely held, but officials say the... threat has grown in the last few days following initial concerns last week when U.S. military personnel said they were under surveillance....
Officials are particularly concerned Incirlik airbase is a potential target because it is from that base that Operation Northern Watch is conducted over Iraq. About 3,400 Air Force personnel participate in monitoring of the northern “no fly” zone over Iraq {NB see 'strategic info. below in CIA's Covert Iraq Mission] — that would make the base a logical target for the terrorist network said to be headed by Osama bin Laden that has the avowed goal of forcing the U.S. military to leave the region. [NB 'alqaeda', as usual, the bogus pretext for national resistance US cannot defeat or buy]
"Officials are still trying to verify the threats against forces in Bahrain and Qatar" - translation: how far to stretch and use this as pretext for already planned permanent occupations of Iraq & Afghanistan, and expanded US NATO 'stabilization interventions'.
In the Persian Gulf nations of Bahrain and Qatar, U.S. military forces have been put on the very highest state of alert, “Threat Condition Delta.”... imposed in two circumstances: when a terrorist attack has occurred, or intelligence has been received that action against a specific location is likely. In Bahrain, there are just under 1,000 military personnel assigned to U.S. Central Command Naval HQs. In Qatar, fewer than 100 U.S. military personnel who run an equipment depot....

CIA's Covert Iraq Mission
10/25/11 http://news.yahoo.com/cias-covert-iraq-mission-044800908.html
CIA is examining how it can continue many secret programs once the U.S. military leaves. Many of these programs were developed in 2007 and 2008, when CIA Director David Petraeus a four-star Army general, assumed command of the multinational forces in Iraq. The CIA drones and paramilitary forces, has a smaller, more stealth footprint than brigades of soldiers, meaning most Americans won’t see much of its continuing activity. As the U.S. military departs Iraq it is looking at how to absorb and continue secret counterterrorism and intelligence programs run inside Iraq for years by the Joint Special Operations Command [JSOC] and other military organizations...according to officials who made clear the CIA intends to keep a footprint inside Iraq Dec. 31...a possibility is also U.S. allies in the region...[it] is in talks with Kuwait about moving some equipment and troops there, said U.S. diplomats on the condition of anonymity... also in discussions with Turkey about positioning sensitive sensors, drones, and other equipment used in Iraq at *Incirlik airbase, which hosted a U.S. Air Force mission in the 1990s to monitor northern Iraq

Libyan Nation Building After Qaddafi

http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/68227/james-dobbins-and-frederic-...
With the fall of the Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi in sight, the United States and its allies face the familiar challenges of post-conflict stabilization and reconstruction. As in Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan, the United States with its allies have prevailed militarily and Western governments must now assume a role in helping establish a new order....Nation building is Nation building is resource-intensive...there are now no Western forces on the ground to help establish security so economic and political reconstruction can go forward. The presence of such forces was essential to consolidating peace in Bosnia and Kosovo. The early inadequacy of ground support in Afghanistan and Iraq allowed seemingly clear-cut victories to mutate into renewed conflict as resistance movements organized, recruited, and took up arms... there is no international actor to coordinate a collective reconstruction program. President Obama wisely limited the direct American role, in part because of other U.S. commitments and its low standing with most Arab publics. But there is no other power of comparable weight and influence to take charge....

Many in Sub-Saharan Africa Mourn Qaddafi’s Death

NAIROBI, Kenya — While Libya’s former rebels and many Western nations welcomed the end of the country’s long and brutal dictatorship, many sub-Saharan Africans are mourning the death of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, celebrated as much for his largesse as for his willingness to stand up to the West. To them, his violent death was another sad chapter in a long-running narrative of Western powers meddling in Africa’s affairs....
“He loved Uganda,” said Salim Abdul who helps run a major mosque in Kampalain an interview at the mosque, in Kampala. He noted that Colonel Qaddafi had committed to paying the salaries for the staff of 20 for the next 20 years. “His death means everything comes to an end,” Mr. Abdul said. Friday, approximately 30,000 people packed the mosque to pay tribute to the slain leader... The Daily Monitor, a prominent independent Ugandan newspaper, reported that Sheikh Amir Mutyaba, a former ambassador to Libya, wept as he told followers that Colonel Qaddafi had “died as a hero. Allah will bless him, foreign oil diggers will be punished,” likely alluding to a perception among some that the West intervened in Libya mainly because of its oil riches.
In Nigeria Africa’s most populous country...a senator told local news media Colonel Qaddafi “was one of the finest African leaders we have.” And a former Nigerian militia leader, who said he was once financed by Colonel Qaddafi, told Agence France-Presse the former Libyan leader’s death would be “avenged... he spilled his blood as a martyr to rekindle the fire of revolution all over the world...the people of the world will rise up against this.” said militia leader Mujahid Dokubo-Asari...
In Zimbabwe, where in 1980 President Robert Mugabe led a liberation struggle against a [ed: US backed] white-minority regime, a presidential spokesman said Colonel Qaddafi would be remembered for his support of Zimbabwe’s independence fight and railed against foreign interference in Africa’s affairs. “The government cannot accept drawing blood as a model for changing political systems on the continent...More so when that blood is drawn at the instigation of foreign countries” said spokesman George Charamba. “As a matter of principle, Zimbabwe does not believe it the duty of the West to tell us who our friends are and who our enemies are, who the beautiful ones are and who the ugly ones are.”
Even Africans who said they did not necessarily support Colonel Qaddafi were stricken by the way he was killed and argued that he left behind an important legacy.
Manny Ansar, director of a popular annual music festival in Mali said “Love him or not, we must recognize this is one of the greatest African leaders who influenced several generations, including mine, and found in the constancy and courage of his positions we search for in a hero. In a word: pride.”

Seeing Limits to ‘New’ Kind of War in Libya

Even as Washington put a European mask of command on the operation, the United States remains the backbone of any NATO offensive... while the fighting dragged on longer than anticipated, the death of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi gave Obama administration officials an opportunity to trumpet the new American way of war to a nation weary of ground combat in Afghanistan and Iraq....
For the record, non-American alliance and partner aircraft flew 75 percent of all sorties of the war. And non-American alliance warships carried out 100 percent of the missions to enforce the arms embargo at sea....For all the talk that no American combat troops were deployed in Libya, ground forces were required to topple the government... Libyan rebel forces, that required ample assistance and advising from outside powers. But NATO will be able to add military muscle only by increasing its defense spending, now averaging only1.7 percent of gross domestic product across the 28-nation alliance...

53 bodies found in Libya raise more questions about fighters

Fifty-three bodies badly decomposed, some with hands bound behind their backs, discovered over the weekend were those of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi loyalists executed after capture, the latest in a string of extrajudicial attacks attributed to revolutionary fighters from the western city of Misrata.. Gadhafi's corpse was moved from Sirte to Misrata, where it lay rotting on public display Monday for a third day in a walk-in market. Leaders of the ruling NTC claim Gadhafi was captured alive then struck by a stray bullet en route to the hospital...U.S. Secretary of State Clinton called for an investigation by the council into Gadhafi's death. Britain's defense secretary also sought an investigation, saying the Libyan revolutionaries had been "a little bit stained" by the spectacle of Gadhafi's death. Bowing to international pressure, Abdul-Jalil ordered an investigation into the circumstances of Gadhafi's death, he said at a news conference Monday

The Special Operations forces assigned to the new mission “bring the experience and technical capability to train, advise and assist partner security forces in support of programs designed to support internal security,” the Pentagon official said. Unlike the earlier effort, the 100 military advisers sent by Mr. Obama will be armed providing assistance and advice to their African hosts, Mr. Obama said, and “will not themselves engage LRA forces unless necessary for self-defense.” The initial deployment is in Uganda, the president said and advisers will operate in South Sudan, Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo...“Our intention is to provide the right balance of strategic and tactical experience to supplement host nation military efforts,” the official said. “Ultimately, Africans are responsible for African security, but we remain committed to our partners to enable their efforts to provide for their own security.” ... Tom Malinowski, Washington director of Human Rights Watch, said his group had been advocating for such a deployment.

U.S. Tightens Military Grip on Africa
By Glen Ford, executive director, Black Agenda Report
10/25 http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article29515.htm
Scores of Somali civilians have been killed in U.S. drone attacks in the southern region of the country, as Washington tightens its military grip on much of the continent. The current offensive involves thousands of Kenyan troops that are threatening the major Somali city of Kismayo. American drones are supporting the Kenyan invasion. The drones' origins are officially secret, but it is known that the U.S. operates drone bases in Ethiopia and Djibouti, home to a huge American base.
For all practical purposes, the U.S. has made proxies of Ethiopia and the five member states of the East African Community: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda. The Ugandans and Burundians safeguard the airport that is the lifeline for Somalia's puppet regime in Mogadishu, where the CIA operates a major facility. In September, the militaries of the East African Community held joint exercises with AFRICOM, the U.S. Africa Command.
Such exercises with American forces have become commonplace. The U.S. Defence Department is busily training the militaries of Mali, Chad, Niger, Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Gabon, Zambia, Uganda, Senegal, Mozambique, Ghana, Malawi and Mauretania. ECOWAS, the Economic Community of West African States, is considering asking the U.S. navy to help it out with its pirate problem. Most of the militaries of the African Union already communicate with American command-and-control equipment, requiring U.S. advisors. The overlapping entanglements have allowed the U.S. military to achieve deep penetration of the armed forces of most African nations.
In such a web of dependency, few standing African armies are capable of defending themselves if the aggressor is the United States. But in most cases, the U.S. would likely get its way without a fight, since the officer class of so many African militaries have direct ties with their American counterparts. The U.S. has so thoroughly infiltrated African armies, many, if not most, would be of no use for national defence against the Americans...
President Obama has officially sent 100 U.S. Special Forces troops to Uganda and neighbouring countries, ostensibly to track down a rebel force. They will also operate in the new nation of South Sudan.
Meanwhile, the NATO attack on Libya threatens to set the whole northern tier of Africa ablaze, a pretext for further U.S. and French operations. American penetration of Africa has reached the point that any nation "such as Eritrea "that does not have a military relationship with the United States is marked for regime change. Instead of the pan-Africanist dream of a United States of Africa, we are seeing an Africa under the military thumb of the United States.

West Planning Libya Solution For Syria
Moscow slams Western draft resolution on Syria
By RIA Novosti
October 22, 2011 "RIA Novosti " --  The Western draft resolution on Syria could provoke a Libyan scenario in the country, Russian Prime Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.
He underscored that Russia is opposed to Syria sanctions “The Western resolution is fraught with the repetition of a Libyan scenario although its co-authors are trying to convince us otherwise,” he said.The main problem with the document is that it lays the blame squarely at President Bashar Assad’s doorstep, which Lavrov described as a “one sided approach.”
On October 4, Russia and China vetoed a UN Security Council draft resolution that urged the Syrian regime to immediately stop using violence against protesters or face "targeted measures."
The draft resolution, sponsored by France with Britain, Germany and Portugal, was supported by nine of 15 Security Council members. Four others - Brazil, India, South Africa and Lebanon - abstained President Assad said in late August that Washington and its European partners were hindering the political changes that represent the only way out of Syria's crisis.
