"Twice in the last two decades, significant cuts in U.S. and western military spending were foreseen: first after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and then in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. But both times military spending soon increased, and among the factors contributing to the increase were America’s interventions in new areas: the Balkans in the 1990s, and Libya today.1 Hidden from public view in both cases was the extent to which al-Qaeda was a covert U.S. ally in both interventions, rather than its foe."

Global Research:


"The puppet ‘revolts’ neither influence the colonial master nor attract the anti-colonial masses. They signal the demise of a US attempt at colonial revivalism. It spells the end of the illusion of the neo-conservative and neo-liberal ideologists who fervently believed that US military power was capably of invading, occupying and ruling the Islamic world via shadow puppets projected over a mass of submissive peoples."

WikiLeaks documents shed light on US-backed intervention in Libya

Natoilustr

World Socialist Web Site:

"US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks expose some of the real reasons and diplomatic tensions behind NATO’s ongoing bombardment of Libya. Far from initiating a “humanitarian” intervention to protect civilians against Muammar Gaddafi’s government, Washington backed the NATO intervention for one reason only — the installation of a regime that better serves the strategic interests of the US, as well as the operations of the giant oil and gas companies."

"Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has said [...]:
“ 'We seek a win-win solution, so if the Westerners believe in such a solution, they should come to the negotiating table on an equal footing,' Salehi said. 
“ 'And if they do not believe in this solution, they can continue pursuing the approach they have adopted, since the pressure has made us more experienced,' he added. "

US Afghan Strategy: Senseless and Merciless

Mercenar1

Global Research:

"Men and materiel are being moved in and out, and this is an amazing network, when you look at it, including just recently the first air flight from the US over the North Pole and then over Kazakhstan into Afghanistan. So, in terms of building up a military network around the world – and we also have to remember there are troops from over 50 countries serving under NATO in Afghanistan, which is the largest amount of countries offering troops for one military command in one nation in world history. We also have to recall that Afghanistan has become a training ground, if you will, to place US-NATO allies and partners in real-life combat situations, to integrate the militaries of at least 50 countries under, basically, US command, using English as their common language. I’m arguing that Afghanistan is a laboratory for integrating the militaries of these various countries."

"However, while still a member of NATO in good standing, Turkey is now becoming a player in its own right, increasingly critical of the US and Israel. This transformation has taken place under the rule of the Islamist Justice and Development Party (AKP), which came to power in 2002 and was soon forced to decide how it would deal with the US request to use Turkey as a base to invade neighbouring Iraq. The decision to refuse marked a new stage in Turkey’s foreign relations. 
"The US is not always pleased with Turkey’s positions on its many wars and would-be wars, but is forced to make the best of the situation. US Ambassador to Turkey Francis Ricciardone recently said the US and Turkey share “almost” the same views on military action in Libya, and that Turkey had a unique role in the region and a special expertise because of historical and cultural reasons."

U.S. strategy on new developments in the Middle East

Protest2a

"It seems that the U.S. is trying to create a pattern for other countries out of what is happening in Egypt. Therefore, the continuation of popular uprisings in the region necessitates the support of other independent national and international institutions such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which can pave the way for a real Islamic and anti-western system of governance in these countries.
"Thus, the victory of the revolutionaries and the establishment of democratic regimes, not only stabilizes the teachings of Iran's Islamic revolution in 1979, which has hugely inspired the Arab spring, but it also revives the Islamic political awakening for other Muslim nations, resulting in the eternal collapse of family dictatorships in the Arab world."

Egyptian Counterrevolution Struggling for a Breakthrough - Truthout

Tahrirsquarevict
"The sooner we can recognize that similar cleavages exist in our own societies and the sooner we can organize and mobilize on their basis, the sooner we can bring the liberatory energy of the Arab Spring across the Atlantic, and the sooner we can make America cease its major exports to the Middle East - reaction, repression and destitution - break the Special Relationship and start using American resources to build America and not to turn the Middle East into rubble.
"If anything, that should be the lesson from and reaction to the Tahrir demonstrations: that the time for replicating them was yesterday and that if we want to see them in our own societies tomorrow, we better start organizing to that end today."

Remember Libya?

Nato

This weekend, headlines in mainstream media were broadly proclaiming statements such as "Gadhafi regime not legitimate, world leaders say" or "US, other Western nations declare Gadhafi regime no longer legitimate." 
According to MSNBC, "In a final statement following a meeting of the so-called Contact Group on Libya, the nations said: The "Gadhafi regime no longer has any legitimate authority in Libya," and Gadhafi and certain members of his family must go."
But Western powers and certainly Western media are working overtime to suppress the fact that Libyans themselves do not share this view of their leader. For better or worse, the people have spoken, and how are Libyans showing their support? To NATO? Certainly not.

AFRICOM Is In Place, The Recolonization Of Africa Commences

Natoilustr

The "great democracies" of the West have been the most consistent and most persistent enemy of the African: during slavery, during the scramble for Africa after the Berlin Conference, during colonialism, during apartheid and now during the current effort to recolonise Africa, which we see in Libya and Cote d'Ivoire and the current illegal sanctions against Zimbabwe.
Americans, the British and their European cousins have discouraged and even outlawed as dangerous to their own people are the very same qualities and habits they seek to impose, promote, fund and otherwise reward among our children and within our societies in Africa.
"We tend to look to (those we think are) the experts, the well-educated, thoroughly trained and richly resourced Western journalists for a lead.  When they dismiss African leadership with a few worn-out clichés, we follow suit. In the process we reduce our own politics, economics and situation in history into the juvenile language of (Western) tabloids."
Running parallel to the "civil society" network or superstructure is the series of military and intelligence co-operation programmes which Africom is supposed to consolidate. Once Africom is in place, the recolonisation process will have been completed.

29 Reasons Why America Should Cut Off Ties With Israel, AIPAC And The Neocons

Palestine9

"Israel is not Sparta, America is not the Athenian empire, and Islamic Iran is not the Persian empire of old. But that is what the corrupt and delusional neocons like to think. They've read the ancient Greeks so much that they actually think they are them.

"But the neocons are not modern-day philosopher-kings. Washington is the kingdom of rats, and the neocons have climbed up to become the top rats. As the children of modern totalitarianism, ancient oppression, and Medieval tyranny they are the poisonous destroyers of freedom, not its proud defenders. These dangerous nuts and armchair warriors don't live in reality, but through their influence on America's Middle East policy their insane ideas have caused real havoc in the Middle East. They live, breathe, think and dream in their own little crazy world. They are after blood and glory, not peace and freedom, but the blood that is being spilled is not their own, and the glory they seek is an illusion."

War With Iran? US Neocons Aim to Repeat Chalabi-Style Swindle

Atomicexplos2redz

"In 1991, Iraqi exiles set up the Iraq National Congress (INC) with funding from the CIA. Under the leadership of Ahmad Chalabi, and flush with tens of millions dollars in US government funding, the INC allied itself with the neoconservatives in Washington and unceasingly beat the drums of war, presenting itself as the popular democratic alternative to Saddam Hussein and feeding faulty intelligence to an eager media and Bush administration. Eventually, they succeeded in dragging the United States into disastrous war that cost Americans and Iraqis their lives and caused incalculable damage to American prestige and power.
"Now, history may be repeating itself."

"With demonstrators back on Tahrir Square in Cairo, Western media outlets once again are focused on the demands of urban protesters. A less tractable but more important story is: when will the Egyptian economy collapse altogether? The answer appears to be: at the very latest, when Saudi Arabia and Gulf states grow weary of paying Egypt's bills, and probably well before then."
