The Libya Contact Group: Colonial attempts to control a post-Gadhafi Libya
The Libya Contact Group met for the third time on Thursday 9th June 2011, the venue this time was the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi. All the usual suspects were there again with America and Britain leading the colonial attempt at usurping the uprising from the people of Libya, after hypocritically propping up Gadhafi for years with weapons, political and economic support.
The meeting came during the same week that the International Criminal Court (ICC) accused Gadhafi of using rape as a weapon against his own people. There is some gesturing towards Gadhafi being tried for war crimes. It was made clear from the first time the Libyan Contact Group met that its whole purpose is to oversee the transfer of power once Gadhafi is finally toppled.
By having these meetings in the Muslim lands the foreign powers be they America, Britain or France are trying to create an air of legitimacy for their intervention in Libya.
Their stooges in the Muslim world of course help these modern day colonists.
The lineup at the conference reads like a who’s who of betrayal. The Arab League who gave the green light for the attack on Libya were there. The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) attended once again showing their ineptitude at independent political thinking or action.
No one is fooled by the reasons why the West would even want to get involved in solving the problems of Libya. It has always been about ‘national interests’ something David Cameron made clear at the start of the bombardment.
However, Muslims must not be swayed by the fact western intervention was at the outset given the green light by Muslim leaders. By taking such a stance these despots were merely protecting their own fragile positions.
The Transitional National Council (TNC) which is effectively Libya’s government in waiting should be very wary of the plans of those who pretend to be their allies. Clinton et al may have pledged some funding for the TNC but there can be little doubt this will come at a price – the endgame will invariably be in America’s interests.
This is not what the young men in Benghazi, who were made shaheed in the first days of the protests, died for. Their call was for an independent and liberated Libya, not one ultimately under the authority of western colonists. History has proven western intervention provides nothing but humiliation to those it is meant to aid.
