Is it merely a coincidence that less than a week after Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi threatened Israel by calling on Palestinians to capitalize on the wave of popular uprisings in the Middle East by massing peacefully on the borders of the Zionist state, his own regime is teetering on the brink of extinction following massive anti-government riots in Benghazi and Tripoli?
On Sunday last week, Gaddafi urged the Arab world to revolt against Israel during a speech on state television.
“Fleets of boats should take Palestinians … and wait by the Palestinian shores until the problem is resolved,” Gaddafi said. “This is a time of popular revolutions.”
“We need to create a problem for the world. This is not a declaration of war. This is a call for peace,” he said in a speech given to mark the birthday of the Prophet Mohamed, a holy day in the Islamic calendar,” reported Reuters.
Low and behold, just days after Gaddafi’s very bold threat to seize on the wave of revolutions as a means of toppling Israel, Gaddafi himself is forced to flee Tripoli as protesters burn down government buildings and take control of entire cities. This tells you an awful lot about who is really behind the wave of revolutions sweeping the region – the US military industrial-complex that kick-started them in the first place.
Despite moves under the previous Blair government to normalize relations with Gaddafi, British Prime Minister David Cameron called the Libyan government’s crackdown “appalling” during a surprise visit to Egypt today.
It seems as though the new world order hierarchy has now got all its ducks in a row as part of a massive propaganda and destabilization assault aimed at Libya in an effort to hijack the revolution and steer its outcome to suit their interests, just as has unfolded in Egypt where a gaggle of NGO’s and globalist forces have swooped in to feed off the vacuum of power left by Hosni Mubarak’s ousting.
Gaddafi’s very public threat to Israel was undoubtedly one of the primary factors that sealed his fate and made him a target of the contrived color revolutions now sweeping the region.
In his speech today, Gaddafi’s son Sayf al-Islam vowed that his father and security forces would fight “until the last bullet” to uphold their regime, blaming the revolt on outside forces and chastising the global media for exaggerating the brutality of the government response.
As Tony Cartalucci writes in his piece entitled, Libya Conquered in the Dark, the establishment media is once again manufacturing the narrative behind the protests in Libya. Given the scant amount of credible information coming out of the country, talking heads have hastily made parallels to Egypt and Tunisia, a red flag in and of itself given that both these uprisings involved the manipulative hand of the US military-industrial complex.
“Libya is next in a long line of nations in the Middle East being destabilized and facing a Western-backed regime change. With the corporate owned mainstream media performing breathtaking acts of propagandizing, the US State Department’s army of bloggers coordinating Libya’s uprising on the ground, and nearly zero confirmed reports coming out, it seems the large North African nation is being dismembered entirely in the dark,” writes Cartalucci, adding that the whole process seems to be focused around isolating China and Russia.
As we have documented, western support for the wave of revolts is also about creating a pretext to topple Iran by camouflaging a sustained destabilization campaign that has dragged on for years in the cloak of authentic, people-powered color revolutions.
As regional expert Adrian Salbuchi highlights in the Russia Today clip above, demonstrators seem to have a poor grasp of the powerful global interests that are driving the protests, and how they could end up in a worse situation than what they began with.
While there undoubtedly a myriad of genuine grievances fueling the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, including soaring food prices and high unemployment, in the case of Egypt the elimination of U.S. puppet Hosni Mubarak has only resulted in a military dictatorship taking the reigns of power. As far back as December 2008, the US Embassy was aware of plans to overthrow Mubarak in 2011 and had begun secretly funding rebel leaders to spearhead the campaign.
“I believe we are seeing the destabilization of all the regimes in the area beginning with Tunisia moving to Egypt, but unfortunately I think the intended result of this is to see it take place in your country of Iran. I think that is the end result that they [Western countries] want to see take place is regime change in countries that are unfavorable to Israel and the US,” geopolitical analyst Mark Glenn tells Press TV.
Glenn points out that the same conditions that made Egypt and Tunisia ripe for revolutions are absent in Libya, GDP growth is good and the economy is doing well.
What’s happening in Libya represents, “Another color revolution that’s been backed and pushed by [George] Soros and other economic interests tied to political interests in the west,” remarks Glenn, adding that all the revolutions have been uncharacteristically (for a genuine grass roots revolution) leaderless, allowing western forces to pick up the pieces by offering financial “assistance” to whatever form of government takes over, hijacking the aftermath and reshaping the international order in their own image.
“No matter who comes to power they are already over a barrel; they’re being held by the throat by these western financial interests who are going to dictate terms to these new governments,” warns Glenn, adding that whether or not the revolutions were genuine to begin with, they will always be thwarted by succumbing to this process.
