Original Message The Truth About the Situation in Libya: Cutting Through the Government Propaganda and Media Lies

A False Pretext
The United States, United Kingdom, France, and Italy targeted the Libyan government for overthrow or “regime change” not because these governments were worried about protecting civilians or to bring about a more democratic form of governance in Libya.
If that were the real motivation of the NATO powers, they could start the bombing of Saudi Arabia right away. There are no elections in Saudi Arabia. The monarchy does not even allow women to drive cars. By law, women must be fully covered in public or they will go to prison. Protests are rare in Saudi Arabia because any dissent is met with imprisonment, torture and execution.
The Saudi monarchy is protected by U.S. imperialism because it is part of an undeclared but real U.S. sphere of influence and it is the largest producer of oil in the world. The U.S. attitude toward the Saudi monarchy was put succinctly by Ronald Reagan in 1981, when he said that the U.S. government “will not permit” revolution in Saudi Arabia such as the 1979 Iranian revolution that removed the U.S. client regime of the Shah. Reagan’s message was clear: the Pentagon and CIA’s military forces would be used decisively to destroy any democratic movement against the rule of the Saudi royal family.
Reagan’s explicit statement in 1981 has in fact been the policy of every successive U.S. administration, including the current one.

TRIPOLI, Libya—Col. Moammar Gadhafi took to the airwaves Wednesday from an unknown location to call on residents to "free Tripoli," even as the rebel-led council planned to move its headquarters to Tripoli, a day after triumphant rebel fighters and thousands of ordinary Libyans captured the strongman's fortress compound in the capital.

Pro-Gadhafi loyalists continue to fight on the outskirts of Libya's capital, and two big explosions were heard in Tripoli, according to news reports.

In a speech aired Wednesday by the local Al-Ouraba TV, sounded subdued and without his usual fiery rhetoric, the Associated Press reported.

Addressing the people in Tripoli, Col. Gadhafi asked: "Why are you letting them wreak havoc?"

The pro-Gadhafi TV channel earlier quoted the Libyan leader as saying he had left the compound in a "tactical move" after 64 North Atlantic Treaty Organization airstrikes turned it to ruble, according to news reports. He vowed martyrdom or victory in his fight against NATO aggression.

Libyans poured into streets surrounding Moammar Gadhafi's fortress-like compound in Tripoli, after rebels captured it following fierce street battles against forces loyal to the longtime ruler. Jeff Grocott has the lastest on The News Hub.

A regime spokesman, Ibrahim Moussa, said thousands of pro-Gadhafi fighters have started to enter Tripoli and will be taking action at the right time. In a televised phone interview with Al-Ouraba, Mr. Moussa said more than 6,500 volunteer fighters have entered the capital.

"We are able to fight, not for days or months, but for years... And we have put plans and alternative plans in this regards," he said.

Meanwhile, the leader of Libya's National Transition Council said the council will move its headquarters from the eastern city of Benghazi to Tripoli, though he added Libya won't be considered liberated until the capture of Col. Gadhafi, who he speculated may be in Algeria.

"The NTC will be gradually moved to Tripoli as of the day after tomorrow," NTC leader Mustafa Abdul Jalil told France 24's Arabic channel early Wednesday.

More than 400 rebel fighters died and over 2,000 were injured in the fight for Tripoli, while short of 600 Gadhafi loyalists had been captured, he said.

Mr. Jalil, who once served as a justice minister under Col. Gadhafi's regime and was among the first ex-Gadhafi officials to defect to the rebels' side, said the new Libya "will hold special relations with all countries that helped in liberating the country."

"I see Libya in the future as a Muslim, organized state and in control with peaceful and amicable ties with its neighbors," he added.

There were reports of continuing battles here, underscoring the chaos that hangs over this city of two million people. Fighters loyal to Col. Gadhafi blockaded foreign journalists in their city-center hotel Tuesday. Witnesses told Al-Arabiya television that pro-Gadhafi forces fired several Grad missiles into the capital, and west of Tripoli, loyalist forces continued to shell the towns of Zuara and Ajelat, according to residents and news reports.

The capture of Col. Gadhafi's complex, already heavily damaged by NATO airstrikes, stands as one of the rebels' highest moments in their six-month battle to topple the world's longest-tenured current ruler. But the failure to find Col. Gadhafi indicated that the rebels' mission of liberating Tripoli remains unfinished.
