Libya: In Bani Walid blows back the green Libyan flag

From the beginning, something went wrong in Libya. Some would also say that all went wrong in Libya. But it still seems that mass media is not willing to report about the truth in Libya, as also they are not willing to report about the truth of events about Libya.

At least, some mass media-agencies reported the message that Gaddafi-supporters have recaptured the Libyan Bani Walid. This Libyan city of Bani Walid was the last one which has surrendered in the Libyan war.

The residents of Bani Walid had no other choice, just as they have described their situation. They didn`t saw the rebels as liberators and also complained about violence and robbery since the occupation of their city.

At the moment, the green Libyan flag is blowing again in Bani Walid. But it is questionable how long the former supporters of the murdered Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi (Qaddafi) are able to have control about their city.

The well-armed Rambo-rebels (“liberators of Libya”) are already before Bani Walid and are awaiting further instructions. But before these armed rebels are going to again occupy the city, it will be determined whether the attack on the barracks really were a direct blow against the rebels or only was a struggle between armed militias in Libya.

Certainly one should assume that it was a direct blow against the rebels. The Libyan tribe, which held the power in Bani Walid, was always on the side of the former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. This tribe is not willing to bow down to the new “conquerors” of Libya, which overran the country by using NATO-weapons and money from the West.

Although they have no more politically leadership, this is the way they are showing their contempt for the hypocritically Western-backed National Transitional Council (NTC).

The situation in Libya is anything but safe and promising. Islamists are trying to continue to enforce, by the help of NATO, but the questionable Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) were not able to really achieve something for the benefits of Libya so far. The level of violence is very high in Libya.

The militias are equipped with modern machinery of war. The formation of a Libyan national army under command of the new Council remains apparently only as a dream.

As stated already in former articles about Libya, the armed militias are not willing to decrease their amount of weapons. The disarming of these armed militias seems impossible in Libya. Arms mean the protection of power and some militias want to increase their influence and power, of course. They are willing and have learned to fight for questionable goals. Not to mention that we are talking partly about weapons of the NATO-arsenal.

The Libyan population is desperate. More and more want something from the money-cake of the former Libyan leader Gaddafi (Qaddafi). The questions about the frozen Gaddafi-funds are getting louder. The Libyan economy is still on the ground. Libya will never be the same as before the questionable foreign intervention.

The prosperity of the Libyan people is a thing of the past and the dubious Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) has succeeded in nothing since its inception. The increasing radicalization and disillusionment of the Libyan population is no surprise. No wonder considering the events within the recent year and current situation.

After the NATO has done the first dirty work in Libya, with great support by Qatar, the Libyans are now asked to tidy up. But no one really seems to have a plan on how to proceed in Libya – and how to be successful in disarming the militias and to stabilize the country and economy.

Of course, one of the main interests of the West is the raw material sources within Libya. It is said that about 12,000 U.S. soldiers have already landed in Libya, secretly, to secure the raw material sources. Maybe they also should murder the remaining armed supports of the former Libyan leader Gaddafi or, at least, support the rebels in their fight against these remaining supporters of the murdered Gaddafi.

This information cannot be found on official sites. Why not?  What should be kept secret?

Maybe they are not really interested that the precarious situation in Libya comes so clearly to light, which will intensify the questions about the NATO war within this country. Or they want to prevent that some accuses the United States, after withdrawal from Iraq, to occupy another Arab country and to exploit another Arab country.

The raw material sources and the reconstruction of Libya would be more than well for the U.S. economy. The Gaddafi-money (funds) is still frozen and could be easily used as payments for the so-called reconstruction assistance by Western companies, governments…

The war against Libya was based on lies, as already the initiated attack on Iraq. That the former Libyan leader Gaddafi wasn`t very popular in the West, is no secret. But that many Libyans, despite his reign, were able to live in prosperity and had no worries was not mentioned.

The country Libya is in ruins now. The prosperity of the so-called Gaddafi-era is over.

Whether the questionable Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) will be able to disarm the militias and integrate them into an official army is just as questionable as the formation of a structure of the executive, judiciary and legislature within Libya. So far, the members of the dubious National Transitional Council failed in almost everything.

The frustration of the Libyan people is increasing. Thus, the security situation is still precarious.
