Obama plans more Middle East wars.
by Stephen Lendman
Electoral priorities feature rhetoric, not new adventurism advocacy likely to rile voters. Post-election, anything goes.
The Middle East pot boils. Endless conflicts persists. Car bombings, other violence, and instability are daily Iraqi realities. Afghanistan is America's longest war. It was lost long ago. Nonetheless, it shows no signs of ending.
Libya is a raging cauldron. US-led NATO ravaged the country. Fighting continues. Washington's puppet regime has no legitimacy or control. Jamahiriya resistance wants it ousted.
Libyan freedom fighters have good reason. Western stooges represent NATO, not liberation. Their nation lies in ruins. Voice of Russia cited a new book by Russian Middle East expert Anatoli Yegorin.
He said NATO's campaign did seven times more damage than WW II. Billions of dollars in stolen Libyan wealth hasn't been returned. Post-Gaddafi Libya is ungovernable.
NATO doesn't solve problems. It creates them. Everywhere it shows up, death, destruction, and unspeakable human misery follow. Liberation isn't in its vocabulary. Conquest, occupation, and exploitation are prioritized.
Former Russian Libya ambassador, Vladimir Charmov, said the worst of his expectations came true. Bani Walid symbolically represents a ravaged country in ruins.
Libyan puppets admit they have no control over the city. Defense minister Osama al-Jueili said:
"The chief of staff has no control over the town and therefore armed men are able to prevent families from coming back."
Bani Walid resembles a ghost town. It was ravaged and destroyed. Thousands likely died. Many more were wounded. Residents able to escape fighting left. Militia fighters prevent them from returning.
Other areas face turmoil. On October 30, AFP headlined "Libya assembly stormed in new blow to forming government," saying:
Protesters stormed Tripoli's national assembly. A scheduled cabinet vote was prevented. Assembly president Mohammed Megaryef cancelled the session. He had no choice. "Out of control" chaos raged.
Libyans burst in and disrupted proceedings. Live television showed it. It wasn't the first time this happened. It won't be the last. Megaryef and assembly members have no control.
