The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO, is holding an extraordinary session on Friday to discuss the situation in Libya, amid reports of a possible military intervention in the Arab country.

The Secretary General of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, made the announcement yesterday in Budapest, where he was meeting with the ministers of defense of the European Union.

Normally, the NATO Council would call a meeting among the permanent representatives of the 21-member military defense organization.

The High Representative of the European Union, Catherine Ashton, said that NATO would consider the imposition of a "no-fly zone" over Tripoli and increased sanctions against the Libyan government.

This reeks of an underlying plan to completely occupy the Middle East in order to secure all sources of oil... and ... at the same time drive prices up. I've read predictions of 200 usd per barrel coming soon.

The more I look at this unfolding scenario, the more I fear we're looking at another round of staged toppling of governments in order to have the observable effect we are now witnessing.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization - is exactly that. Its creation (formed on April 4, 1949) was only concerned with the threat of those 'Red Commie Bastards'.

As the Berlin wall fell and the Soviet Union disintegrated, Gorbachev was given assurances by the West that NATO would be disbanded, because there would be no need or for that matter international remit for such as organization, as the 'Red Threat' would no longer exist in the long run.

As ever this was quietly forgotten and we still have NATO, and far from dismantling it has expanded to 28 nations.

It is the strong arm of the Industrial Military Complex/corporatist's. NATO involvement in Iraq,Afghanistan and now the threat of involvement in Libya is purely for the protection of Oil and Gas resources.

NATO could care less about the people. Only need to look at its history in action with the indiscriminate aerial bombing of the former Yugoslavia.

Libya is not a member of NATO, it is a part of Africa, and by rights the African Union should get involved. Stop mercenaries that Qaddafi is flying in would be a start.

NATO/EU/UN, isn't interested in helping resolve African conflicts as long as the mineral wealth keeps flowing. See Darfur among many other conflicts, which due to western backed dictators, crushed any hint of descent.

Got there toes burnt in Somalia and never came back.
But low and behold if Big Oil investments are in trouble send in NATO pint.gif

Quote:On 19 June 2003, a major restructuring of the NATO military commands began as the Headquarters of the Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic were abolished and a new command, Allied Command Transformation (ACT),[/b] was established in Norfolk, Virginia, United States, [quote]and the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) became the Headquarters of Allied Command Operations (ACO). ACT is responsible for driving transformation (future capabilities) in NATO, whilst ACO is responsible for current operations.
From that you can see who is pulling the strings of power.

U.S. repositions forces – The U.S. military is repositioning naval and air forces around Libya, a Pentagon official said Monday, as international demands intensify for an end to Gadhafi's decades-long rule.

It is moving some armed forces in the region near Libya in case they're needed, but is not saying what they might be needed for.

Jeezus. Hillary wants to do to Libya what Bill did to Iraq.

“We’ve been reaching out to many different Libyans who are attempting to organize in the east and, as the revolution moves westward, there as well,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said today en route to Geneva, where she is due to meet with the foreign ministers of six major world powers to discuss imposing sanctions as well as a no fly zone on Libya.

As happened under Bill Clinton during years of sanctions against Iraq, such measures will only deepen the suffering of the population and will do nothing to avert the humanitarian crisis. They will however weaken Gaddafi’s political position, enhancing the swift success of any US-backed coup.


Gaddafi is being Saddamized.
