Again, it is a great pleasure for me to reference the work of a great journalist. Russ Baker has been doing a terrific job for many years, and since the publication of his masterpiece Family of Secrets, he hasn’t cease to work, enquire, search for trails of investigation, for leads to be able to bring new facts or evidence to the light of day on subjects or cases of interest. Here he takes on the difficult subject of Libya. I must say that what he presents in this new article makes a great deal of sense. In a nutshell, the Libyan war has been planned and orchestrated by elements of both French and Italian intelligence. The whole thing began with Qaddafi’s protocol chief, Nouri Al-Mesmari, visit to France in October 2010. Under the cover of alleged medical treatments, he began talks with French intelligence to examine the possibility of taking Qaddafi down. Among many elements Russ Baker’s excellent article dwells on, is a project that apparently was concocted by the European Union to NATO-ize the Mediterranean, strangely reminiscent of the mare-nostrum contemplated during the days of the Roman Empire. Also, mining and oil considerations have played a big role in the Libyan « uprising » if you consider that Libya exports 32% of its oil to Italy alone. Europe has no source of oil that is local. They have to import oil and other resources from neighbouring countries.
I just have one element to add and I think it is important. One year ago or so, Qaddafi threatened Europe to swarm the continent with Black immigration if the EU didn’t give him something like 5 bn euros a year. He made this incredible demand, that sounded rather like extortion or blackmail, during a two-day visit in Italy. Also during this trip, he hosted two « convert to Islam parties » which infuriated the Catholic Church. No surprise he got toppled… So first, you can familiarize yourself by listening to the interview with Russ Baker on the Peter B. Collins Show and then read the entire article. I also joined the article from the Mail Online that talks about Qaddafi’s threat.
