5). Imagine! On Feb. 21 a bare four days after the overseas calls for "day of rage' U.S. media's UK counterpart, the Telegraph reported that " the International Federation for Human Rights said Libya's second city along with Sirte, Tobruk, Misrata, Khoms, Tarhounah, Zenten, Al-Zawiya and Zouara had all been taken by protesters. "Protesters?" We were given to see these tough hombre heavily armed "freedom fighters' in their fleets of pickup trucks looking nothing at all like protesters.
6). While, very quickly, heavily armed insurgent gangs, always described as "ordinary citizens who had dropped their office jobs a few days before to fight for freedom,' were efficiently overrunning towns and airports, Cooper and Robertson kept excitedly exclaiming cities were being bombed from the air - civilians targeted - showing viewers the same single bomb crater in a field outside of a town for five days running as proof, though oddly admitting no one had been injured.
7). CNN and NY Times have never reported that Libya, as opposed to desperately poor Egypt and Yemen enjoys a higher standard of living than nine European nations including Russia. Rather, they continue emphasizing Western media condemnation of Gaddafi over his entire four decades of leadership of Libya and the movement for African Union.
8). In less than 2 weeks came Obama's executive orders freezing Libyan accounts or confiscating Libyan accounts of billions of dollars for eventual use by insurgents. Even earlier began the threats from international institutions beholden to U.S. and NATO, and open speculation by the same coalition of former colonial powers that had once conquered and ruled the entire non-white world for centuries, of military action against "Gaddafi' (that would add a sixth Muslim nation to its bombing list of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and Pakistan.
9). Then came the successful pressuring of China and Russia not to veto a U.S. NATO attack on Libya in favor of the insurgent army (almost openly led and funded by CIA, M16, Mossad and the French Secret Service) under the pretext of protecting the Libyan population from its own government (never referred to a an independent nation, but as "Gaddafi" or "the Gaddafi regime). A UN "Security Council' resolution was passed, but never meant to protect Libyans from a brutal foreign funded insurgent army calling for warplanes of the former European occupiers of North Africa to bomb their own countrymen and nation. During all the months following, CNN would have us believe the attacking insurgents never killed anyone, while hammering in the Gaddafi monster theme.
10). All this deception was prepared over decades of rabid media attacks on Gaddafi, the anti-imperialist, the 'mad dog' of Reagan and Secretary Clinton, and then with claims that Libya was having just another revolution like those against the many U.S. supported dictators of Arab nations. War on Libyan was accepted by the American public in the same way the public had accepted covert violence and war to protect Guatemalans, Congolese, Dominicans, Cubans, Panamanians, Nicaraguans, Chileans and Hondurans from their presidents, wars to protect Koreans from other Koreans, Vietnamese from Vietnamese, Laotians from Laotians, Cambodians from Cambodians, Lebanese from Lebanese, Afghans from Afghans, Iraqis from Iraqis, Somalis from Somalis, Yemeni from Yemeni, Grenadians from Grenadians, Salvadorians from Salvadorians, Yugoslavs from Yugoslavs, Iranians from Iranians, Haitians from Haitians, and Pakistanis from Pakistanis. By this time everyone should have known of the U.S. protection racket, but count on innovation by CIA, CNN and the NY Times to make a seemingly ironclad case in favor of each new U.S. EU Canadian Australian war coalition.

Capitalism's Warplanes: CIA & al Qaeda Destroy Socialist Libya's 53rd Highest Living Standard
It's like when you watch a magician perform. You might have an idea how the sleight of hand was done. But you don't really know for sure. You just know what you saw was a trick.
You have seen revolutionaries before, real and phony. These heavily armed excited hombres don't look and act the part of the aggrieved, and for the most part don't look like the noble people risking their lives in the streets of Cairo, Tunis, Sana'a and Manama.
Thirdly, the really bad guys, the big bad guys - the very powerful imperialist capitalists who revolutionaries must always fight, are incongruously on the side of 'Libyan "revolutionaries.'
Fourthly, if they have it better than everyone else in Africa and the Arab world, why are they willing to kill and be killed to change the leader who has led them in producing an enviable level of social services democratically available to all citizens*(1 ), and side with Libya's former brutal exploiting European masters who now generously bomb Libya again?
Alassane Quattara bio Wikipedia:
In April 1990, the IMF under the Structural Adjustment Program forced the Ivorian President Houphouët-Boigny to accept Ouattara as Chairman of the Inter-ministerial Committee for Coordination of the Stabilization and Economic Recovery Programme of Côte d'Ivoire. While holding that position, Ouattara also remained in his post as BCEAO Governor (Note that in this position he was also representing Burkina Faso). He subsequently became Prime Minister of Côte d'Ivoire on 7 November 1990 still under the IMF imposition, after which Charles Konan Banny replaced him as Interim BCEAO Governor.

"The UN, CIA, EU, and all others should leave, including Burkina Faso's freemason president who hired and trained mercenaries to carry out a coup before the elections.
