'Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated'

The hypocrisy and lies around the alleged death of Gaddafi have gone too far, for me at least. I find it hard to stomach the statements by Western leaders about Gaddafi's "crimes' as they gloat over the televised brutal murder of some guy in Libya.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said that yesterday was:

"a day to remember all of Gaddafi's victims, from those who died in connection with the Pan Am flight over Lockerbie, to Yvonne Fletcher in a London Street, and obviously all of the victims of IRA terrorism who died through their use of Libyan Semtex.We should also remember the many many Libyans who died at the hands of this brutal dictator and his regime."

Omitted from the end of Cameron's statement was  "and we should also remember that I'm lying through my teeth.'

Of course, British tabloids like The Sun, are only too happy to parrot Cameron's nonsense in typical jingoistic fashion:

But let's have a quick look at "Gaddafi's crimes' as reported by Cameron:

The bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland. This was clearly a false-flag operation designed to demonise Libya. See the web site of the father of one of the victims Dr. Jim Swire for the evidence. Libya has never accepted responsibility for the bombing of Flight 103, but instead paid compensation to the families to "buy peace" i.e. reintegration into the Western elite.

The murder of Police Constable Yvonne Fletcher in St. James' Sq. London, April 1984. Blamed on Libya, there is in fact a wealth of evidence to support the idea that Fletcher was shot by a CIA/MI6 operative in an effort to, again, demonise Libya. Despite the fact that a Channel 4 Dispatches documentary spelled it out in scientific detail, Cameron is happy to propagate the lie.

The "victims of IRA terrorism' through the use of Libyan Semtex. There is little doubt that, on a few occasions, the IRA leadership successfully bought Libyan weapons. There is also little doubt however that all alleged major IRA attacks that involved the death of civilians were the work of British intelligence. Consider this interesting link between alleged IRA attacks and the Lockerbie bombing:

Over the 1970s and early 1980s Dr.Thomas Hayes progressed to Head of Department at the British Royal Armaments Research Establishment [RARDE].  His testimony was central to the bogus Lockerbie verdict. A Parliamentary inquiry into the 1974 alleged IRA "Maguire Seven" bombing and trial discovered that key forensic evidence indicated the innocence of the accused. This evidence, that was known to Dr. Hayes and two RARDE colleagues, was not disclosed at the Maguire Seven trial.  The Maguire seven were freed on appeal after spending fifteen years in jail.

That just gives you a small insight into the lengths to which Western governments and "intelligence agencies' have gone (and are prepared to go) to "protect their interests'. With the mainstream media bought and paid for, global corporate, fascist domination is a  done deal unless we all wake up to the reality of the situation and start calling it for what it is -- bullshit, through and through.

So yeah, Cameron et al gloating and lying to the cameras; Hilary Clinton just happening to be in Libya a few days ago and demanding Gaddafi "dead or alive' one day before someone looking a bit like him is produced from a "rat hole' and then quickly executed and (soon to be) buried in a "secret location' far from prying eyes; the deliberately conflicting stories of how he was killed being spread far and wide by the mainstream media; Gaddafi being feted (and armed) by British, French, American, Italian Prime Ministers and Presidents just a couple of years ago and then suddenly demonised as a "brutal dictator' and his country and citizens bombed back to the stone age; -- all of that pisses me off.  But what really concerns me here is not my own rising blood pressure, but the future of Libya. Already the vultures are circling, eying their prize in the form of Libya's natural resources. Take it away French Minister of Defence Gerard Longuet:

New Libyan leaders "owe' France

France will seek a leading role in post-war Libya, Defence Minister Gerard Longuet said on Friday, arguing that Libya's new leaders "owe" Paris for leading the campaign to oust Muammar Gaddafi.

Speaking in an interview to Le Monde on the day after Libya's ousted strongman was captured and killed, Longuet said France is poised to take advantage of its leading role after a successful campaign.

France "will strive to play the role of a principal partner in the country where the leaders know they owe us a lot".
