12/7 Brief Survey of U.S casus belli 'wars' part 2

"Libya is too important in the world system to have Western strategic priorities in Libya unfulfilled and U.S. businesses shut out."
Libya Is Too Big to Fail
International intervention is the right move - not just for humanitarian reasons.
Jason Pack, Libya researcher at Oxford University's St. Antony's College, worked in both Tripoli and Washington, D.C., on strengthening U.S.-Libya relations.
...Libya is not peripheral to the world system. It is at its very core. Libya possesses 1,800 kilometers of Mediterranean coastline. The country produces 2 percent of the world's oil, with 85 percent of exports going to Europe Since the beginning of the Great Recession and the slump in global demand in 2008, Libya has allocated $200 billion toward new infrastructure spending.
What makes Libya so important? Any real estate agent could tell you: location, location, location. Control of the country has always been a remarkably effective way to project power into Egypt, the Mediterranean, and beyond. Similarly, denying a hostile power (be it the Soviet Union, Muammar al-Gadhafi, or terrorists) the ability to destabilize surrounding countries from Libyan territory has been a consistent thread in U.S. policy since the end of World War II.

Opening Salvo of U.S. 'Middle East and North Africa' Campaign in the 'GWOT'
Libya, a critical move in the U.S. war to 'own' the African continent, led by USAFRICOM, depended on 'soft power' propaganda personalizing Gaddafi as a 'hated', must be punished 'dictator' with monstrous big lies disinforming, degrading and demonizing his leadership, the conditions in Libya and him.

12/7/11 Peal Harbor & Brief Survey of U.S.war casus belli, part 1

digest: U.S. 'smart power' wars for global domination based on 'casus belli'
WWII started in 1939 but the US refused to enter the war until the Pearl Harbor attack it engineered December 7, 1941. Contrary to the 'great anti-fascist war' myth, its entry was delayed until so its 'allies' did most of the dirty ground work because the US strategic goal was not 'anti-fascist': it was defeating the then revolutionary Soviet Union, an anti-imperialist and socialist beacon to oppressed peoples and nations worldwide, the major threat to U.S. global domination. 'Mopping up the 'allies' spoils to restructure world capital with the Marshall Plan secured U.S. finance capitalist supremacy.
The 'GWOT' today, merging soft & hard power, e.g. 'smart power', is the continuation of this same U.S. 'manifest destiny mission, the expansion of its historically unprecedented state terrorist slaughter and destruction in the name of democracy, liberation, human rights and development.
Using the bogus European 'credit crunch', US blames Europe for delaying its 'recession recovery' and maneuvers to tighten dominance of European 'allies' by creating a 'fiscal union' of preferred western nations under IMF and other US dominated vehicles

2000 One year before 9/11, the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) called for "some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor", which would serve to galvanize US public opinion in support of a war agenda.

11/28 Feds.Secret $7.7 Trill. Bank Bailout; Egypt Flash; 'Enemy' Definition Change; 'Troops as Teachers'

"The amount of money the central bank parceled out...dwarfed the Treasury Department’s $700 billion TARP. Add up guarantees and lending limits, and the Fed committed $7.77 trillion as of March 2009 to rescuing the financial system"

Secret Fed Loans Helped Banks Net $13B
The Federal Reserve and the big banks fought for more than two years to keep details of the largest bailout in U.S. history a secret... the financial crisis of 2007 to 2009 emerges from 29,000 pages of Fed documents obtained under the FOIA and central bank records of more than 21,000 transactions.
The Fed didn’t tell anyone which banks were in trouble so deep they required a combined $1.2 trillion Dec. 5, 2008, their single neediest day. Bankers didn’t mention they took tens of billions of dollars in emergency loans as they were assuring investors their firms were healthy. And no one calculated until now that banks reaped an estimated $13 billion of income by taking advantage of the Fed’s below-market rates...Saved by the bailout, bankers lobbied against government regulations, made easier by the Fed, which never disclosed details of the rescue to lawmakers even as Congress doled out more money and debated new rules aimed at preventing the next collapse...

11/21 Information War, part 2

“It’s not a matter of what is true that counts but a matter of what is perceived to be true.”

“"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."
- Henry Kissinger, address to Bilderberger meeting, Evian, France, May 21, 1992.

"It is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of their leaders. That is easy. All you have to tell them is that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
Hermann Goering, Nuremberg Trials

“I can think of no faster way to unite the American people behind George W. Bush than a terrorist attack on an American target overseas. And I believe George W. Bush will quickly unite the American people through his foreign policy.”
Henry Kissinger, on CNBC, Dec 13, 2000 ..."

Between all the goings and comings in the Horn of Africa and all this snake-eater (Special Forces) Sahara stuff ...it's all over the place...an awful lot of it is being run out of Special Operations Command and out of the agency (CIA), I think it is probably far larger than anyone imagines."...

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,

The Arab League Thursday recognized Libya’s rebel Transitional National Council (TNC) as the country’s legitimate government... Na’eem Jeenah, executive director of the Afro Middle East Center in Johannesburg, said the question remains who the Transitional National Council represents....Gadhafi proposed that all countries on the African continent form a United States of Africa....Libya was a major financial backer of the AU...Now his days appear numbered “...the importance Gadhafi gave to the African Union and the African continent will be reduced...there will be much more emphasis on being part of the Arab League, Arab world, developing stronger relations with other Arab states and the west"...

Before US-NATO Invasion, Libya Had the Highest Human Development Index, Lowest Infant Mortality, Highest Life Expectancy In Africa

10/3/11 Why Syria?

The U.S. "MENA" (Mideeast / N. African) 'arab spring'campaign is central to the broader bipartisan NSS Agenda: control of the African continent and 'restructuring' Arab nations under US domination to eliminate capitalist rivals and obstructionists and most critically, to suppress genuine revolutions, are essential to secure and expand the U.S. global supremacy won through imperialist WW2.

'Arab Spring' in Syria, a critical regional campaign in US global domination war, same producer, director, 'sectarian civil war' / 'humanitarian' R2P script, with Syrian leads.
The MENA campaign goal is the African continent, which means extremely complex, contradictory situations en route requiring restructuring of the Arab world and Africa.
Strengthen control in 'cooperative' countries by replacing long-unpopular US installed, unpopular rulers unable to preventing/suppressing new mass anti-imperialistzionist uprisings, with liberal pro-US proxies able to stave off genuine revolution and support USAFRICOM/NATO expansion in Africa and the Arab world.
With 'uncooperative' successful nations like Libya, Syria and Iran, popular rulers who resist US domination, must be overthrown: fund/arm a destabilzing 'opposition', relying on expats and native pro-west bourgeoisie, to create chaos, and, as in Iraq, to manufacture 'religious / sectarian strife' called 'civil war' pretext for US/UN "R2P invasion to 'protect civilians'
mainly endangered and killed directly and indirectly by US invasions.
With genuine mass resistance in US imperialism's key mideast clients, especially Israel, Saudi Arabia (Bahrain), the US supports rulers' violent suppression of opposition with soft & hard power not covered by 'strategic information' / news, increased military support ($60 billion + to *Saudi Arabia for 'regional security', heavily directed against USrael's main regional power problem Iran,..as you'll see below.

"Palestine Papers": PA/PLO Palestine and Beyond, p.2

(originally "Israel, WH chill, warms Republican Party")
"Unbending support for Israel has long been a bipartisan tenet of U.S. politics"
Republicans build closer bond with Israel
WASHINGTON — When the Obama administration wanted to be certain Congress would not block $50 million in new aid to the Palestinian Authority last month, it turned to a singularly influential lobbyist: Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. At the request of the U.S. Embassy and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Netanyahu urged dozens of Congress members visiting Israel in August not to object to the aid, according to congressional and diplomatic officials. Israel views the money, provided since 2007, as helping to foster stability by supporting Palestinian government services and professionalizing security forces....Since 2007, the United States has spent $600 million a year supporting the Palestinians, training its security forces, providing direct budget assistance to the Palestinian coffers for essential services and delivering humanitarian assistance through nongovernmental organizations working in the West Bank and Gaza....The notifications required to Congress before releasing the aid gives committee leaders the power to put holds on delivery of the aid — something the administration sought to avoid by urging Netanyahu to intervene to keep the money flowing last month.
While the U.S. aid to the Palestinians has been viewed with suspicion by some of Israel's supporters, the Israeli government, especially security officials, have expressed support for it....

9/20 Palestine and the Question of Statehood, p.1

"The three great imperatives of geopolitical strategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant, and to keep the barbarians from coming together."
Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard, 1997 - Obama adviser

The 'peace process' is part of the war to destroy the just struggle of the Palestinian people for the liberation and self-determination of their nation
Sick joke: More frankly - fascist prez. hopefuls handed Obama a liberal burnishing boon, denying reality to trump US top-zionist hand: Rick Perry accusing him of a "policy of Palestinian appeasement undermining U.S. security interests in the Middle East"; his main GOP rival Mitt Romney, issuing a statement saying: “What we are watching unfold at the UN is an unmitigated diplomatic disaster. It is the culmination of President Obama’s repeated efforts over three years to throw Israel under the bus and undermine its negotiating position.”.

Statehood is a class question, a political question. Global capitalism, dominated by the US, decides which states will be destroyed and which new ones will be born to serve its global agenda. The current bruhaha about the 'Palestinian leadership' taking its case for 'statehood' to the UN is another very sick joke. Recall it was the UN, an imperialist instrument, that conferred 'statehood' legitimacy on US proxy 'israel' (and more recently on US sponsored and supported 'South Sudan' and TNC in Libya, among others)
"Statehood: No definition is binding on all members of the community of nations on criteria.. In actual practice, the criteria are mainly political, not legal " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovereign_state#cite_note-14
