With the recent release of
Hillary Clinton’s emails by Wikileaks, the public now knows exactly how the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) went from a collective defense
organization to the new Barbary Coast Pirates of imperialism.
During the 2011 Libyan
uprising, the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1973 which
called for a ceasefire and authorized military action to protect civilian lives.
A coalition formed, centered around NATO with the March 17, 2011 passing of the
Resolution. Its purpose -- a so-called "no-fly zone" over Libya.
The irony that the U.S.-dominated
NATO military organization would be concerned with "protecting" Arab
civilians is all too obvious since the United States is the nation most
responsible for killing Arab civilians.
The real reasons for the
attack have been dealt with most directly by America's famous reformed "economic
hitman," John Perkins.
Perkins points out that the
attack on Libya, like the
attack on Iraq,
has to do with power and control of resources, not only oil, but gold. Libya has the highest standard of living in Africa. "According to the IMF, Libya's Central
Bank is 100% state owned. The IMF estimates that the bank has nearly 144 tons
of gold in its vaults," Perkins wrote.
NATO went there like modern
Barbary Coast Pirates -- to loot Libya's gold. The Russian media, in
addition to Perkins, reported that the Pan-Africanist Qaddafi, the former
President of the African Union, had been advocating that Africa use the gold so
plentiful in Libya and South Africa to
create an African currency based on a gold dinar.
"It is significant that
in the months running up to the UN resolution that allowed the U.S. and its allies to send troops into Libya, Muammar
al-Qaddafi was openly advocating the creation of a new currency that would
rival the dollar and the euro. In fact, he called upon African and Muslim
nations to join an alliance that would make this new currency, the gold dinar, their
primary form of money and foreign exchange. They would sell oil and other
resources to the US
and the rest of the world only for gold dinars," Perkins explained.
Revelation in Email to
Wikileaks released an
unclassified U.S. Department of State document emailed to Hillary dated April 2,
2011, key Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal confirmed that the Perkins was right
and the attack on Libya had nothing to do with Qaddafi being a threat to the
United States and NATO and everything to do with looting his gold.
“Qaddafi’s government holds 143
tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver. During late March, 2011, these
stocks were moved to Sabha (south west in the direction of the Libyan border
with Niger and Chad); taken from the vaults of the Libyan
Central Bank in Tripoli,” Blumenthal reported to
Blumenthal pointed out the
purpose of Qaddafi’s precious metal: “This gold was accumulated prior to the
current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African
currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide
the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA).”
Blumenthal spells out the
reason for NATO’s attack and France’s
imperial plunder, “French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly
after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that
influenced President Nicholas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya.”
There were five reasons for France’s illegal war with NATO against Libya. Sarkozy
sought, according to Blumenthal, “a. A desire to gain a greater share of Libyan
oil production, b. Increase French influence in North Africa, c. Improve his
internal situation in France, d. Provide the French military with an
opportunity to assert its position in the world, e. Address the concern of his
advisors over Qaddafi’s long term plans to supplant France as the dominant
power in Francophone Africa.”
Under the neo-colonialism
favored after World War II during the period of the Cold War, we preferred to
bribe various African leaders to help us loot their nation's resources. The U.S., of course,
killed any Pan-African aspirations as well as potential leaders like Patrice
This highjacking of Arab and
African resources and slaughtering of Arab civilians is a long-standing plan put
forth by neo-conservatives in the United States. The Project for the
New American Century (PNAC) has had a "hit list" of Arab nations and
little regard for Arab casualties.
General Wesley Clark wrote
in "Winning Modern Wars" that "As I went back through the
Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time
for a chat. Yes, we are still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But
there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he
said, and there was a total of seven countries beginning with Iraq, then Syria,
Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia, and Sudan.
What we witnessed in Libya was old-fashioned
19th century imperialism -- the deliberate plundering of a sovereign nation-state's
resources by more powerful Western conquistadors.
