Tripoli – Part II

America is at war on three front’s folks. Stated goal for this second American war with the folks in Libya is to protect civilians from Brother Gadhafi and his boys. * Lots of naval vessels, airplanes, fuel of all types, armaments and munitions, other logistics items and highly trained young folks are waging war against the Libyan horde.

News Flash:
“Mission creep, mission gets bigger and bigger and bigger. We take out some of their tanks and heavy artillery does that give the rebels a chance? Do we help Bahrain and Saudi Arabia? … If we engage with just Tomahawks from submarines and a no fly zone can we stop slaughter on the ground?” (Fox News, March 19, 2011)

Means, “How big can this thing get?”

U.S., Allies to Enforce U.N. Security Resolution on Libya: By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, March 18, 2011 – The United States military will work with NATO and Arab League allies to stop Libyan ruler Moammar Gadhafi from killing his own people, President Barack Obama said here today.
Yesterday, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution that demands an end to the violence against Libya’s citizens.
The resolution “authorizes the use of force, with an explicit commitment to pursue all necessary measures to stop the killing, to include the enforcement of a no-fly zone over Libya,” Obama said at the White House.
U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973 lays out clear conditions that Gadhafi must meet if he wants to avoid military consequences, the president said.
The United States, the United Kingdom, France and Arab states agree that a cease-fire must be implemented immediately,” Obama said. “That means all attacks against civilians must stop.”
The Libyan ruler’s troops must stop advancing on Benghazi and pull back from Adjadbiya, Misrata and Zawiya, Obama said. And, Gadhafi must allow the movement of water, electricity and gas supplies into all areas of Libya. (

Means, “Somebody screwed up, military consequences are under way in Libya already. Loyalists can not now avoid military consequences as they are now in progress.”

News Flash:
Sixty-five percent of Americans oppose military action in Libya. (Fox News March 19, 2011)

Means, “Once again we at war without the will of the people behind the effort. American Military Personnel are in battle on a 3rd front without total support.” Also, “no military effort to destroy and defeat the enemy. Air space will be denied the enemy”. O.K. No real effort to take all the bad guys to the cemetery. Bad move from a military point of view!

News Flash:
Pentagon Briefing – Bullet Items included:
… Leading edge of coalition forces
Coalition Goals Include:
…Prevent further attack on Libyan citizens especially around Benghazi
… Degrade Libyan efforts to launch air strikes and attack coalition aircraft
… Shape the battlescape
… Force will not be used to go beyond well-defined goal to protect citizens in Libya
… 110 – 112 Tomahawk Cruise missiles, early warning sites, command and control and early warning systems (Fox News March 19, 2011)
…We are in the first phase of a multi-phase operation (Fox News March 19, 2011)

Means, “Situation is developing. We are implementing our battle plans as directed within the limitations placed on us by civilians.”

News Flash:
…U.S. is in command … at some point command will transfer to someone else (MSNBC March 19, 2011)

Means, “Unclear. The United States has the command and control assets to bring forces of different nations under one command structure. Engaged and support forces may come under an overall NATO Command structure supported by United States assets.”


An airplane or naval vessel can kill folks, destroy property and create a lotta stress and difficulty for the proverbial bad guy. Airplanes and naval vessels have an important and very limiting military issue. No airplane or naval vessel can take and hold ground. Occupying enemy ground requires tanks, artillery, infantry and a logistics support system. Loyalist forces in Libya have an excellent knowledge of coalition order of battle. They know the threat forces arrayed against them and the battle capabilities of those forces.

The stated goal of the No Fly Zone over Libya is to stop the killing of civilians. It has already failed. Delay of military action equals benefit to the enemy. Delay of military action leaves the initiative to the enemy. The enemy chooses the time, place and conditions of battle. These benefits provide the enemy with the capability to influence all the advantages of implementing military tactics and forces on the battlefield. Loyalist forces have had the advantage of taking action. Coalition air and naval forces will degrade their ability to move assets and troops around the battlefield. Forces identified as Rebels will be able to use Coalition attacks as cover for battle tactics. A major limiting factor for the Rebels is loss of equipment and personnel, close proximity of Loyalist forces and lack of armor, artillery and command and control system. Close in Loyalist forces prevent Coalition air assets from destroying Loyalist targets.

Loyalist forces have had control of the battlefield. Rebels are challenged to counter the Loyalist gains and tactics. The military situation in Libya is very fluid and changing by the hour.

Other countries have made commitments to this new war. Consider Denmark and Canada news releases.

Foreign minister promises four fighter jets and 90 crew for Libyan no-fly zone

Canada joins UN coalition aerial mission on Libya
Harper notes action amounts to a necessary ‘act of war’ on Libya (By Mark Kennedy, Post Media News, March 19, 2011)
PARIS — As the international community launched aerial military missions against Libya on Saturday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the action amounts to an “act of war” that is critical to remove Moammar Gadhafi from power before he massacres any more of his own people.
Harper made the comments after an emergency summit of world leaders who had gathered to discuss how they will implement a United Nations-sanctioned no-fly zone to prevent Gadhafi’s suppression of civilians.
The coalition wasted no time, with French jets becoming the first, on Saturday, to begin enforcing the no-fly zone.
It was the first step in the largest international military exercise in the Arab world since the Iraq war. (Ottawa Citizen, March 19, 2011)

Britain, France, Italy, Greece and other nations have employed or will employ military assets in the current campaign against Libya. How long will the current war go on? My view is we are in this for the long term. The military situation will stabilize. Loyalist forces in Libya have made steady gains up to and including today. They are reported to be attacking Rebels in Benghazi – the last major city held by them. As the situation stabilizes, Loyalist will be effectively in control of most of Libya. The goal of the current war is to stop killing the innocent. Success? Remains to be seen. I am not optimistic. The madman of Libya will butcher many more civilians – before the free world says enough and has this modern day criminal killed and ends the war. When? – In the military we call this an “unresolved issue”. This could be a very long war with extensive civilian dead, wounded and maimed. .

*Early in the 19th century, America did a “…to the shores of Tripoli…” event in Libya. The current war in Libya is Americas 2nd war in Libya.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
