There are at least two ways to look at the UN/NATO intervention in Libya.  From an egalitarian standpoint, there is a resolution from the United Nations Security Council authorizing the use of force against the Gaddafi regime.  Russia and China could have easily vetoed it but chose to abstain.  They stayed out of it to cover their backsides.  They know what Gaddafi, a known psychopath, is capable of but they also know what the US, Britain, France and Italy can do also.  Gaddafi isn’t the only psychopath.

As to vital national interests, Libya hardly counts.  That the Mediterranean has long been accepted as an “American lake,” does loosely imply both American responsibility and complicity in anything that happens there as multiple interventions in Lebanon attest to. The world has one of those “since you are there anyway….” views about the US in the Mediterranean.

(On a side note, Saudi Arabia decided today to cut oil production, all the while oil is heading for the highest prices in history.  More on this in a bit.  The oil problem isn’t Libya but rather speculation in oil futures meant to bleed the US economy dry.  The recent attack on the dollar is partially driven by oil speculation.)

A key security component, not taken into account by most, is the enmity between Libya and Egypt, nations that share a common religion and absolutely nothing else, that has “fertilized” a decades old “marriage of convenience” between Israel and Libya, one we saw signs of during the early days of the current rebellion.

That “second” way is to oppose any US involvement.  For some, it makes sense, a clear result of moral and political views.  However, many of the new “peace mongers,” are a different lot, more “chickenhawk” than “dove.”

For the “left,”  reasons could be a love of peace, of which there is none, a sign of less than deep understanding of the issues, or a mistrust and even hatred of the United States and a belief that anything America does is driven by sinister intentions.

There certainly is a long and well established history of America acting with sinister intentions, no question about it.  Suspicion is always reality based. Then again, we have all these very inexplicable “scavengers,” certainly not “predators,” who have taken on the mantle of “moral leadership,” something that may add a new and strange dimension to their resumes.

Our problem is that those leading the pack in damning the United States as a colonialist and aggressor is the same group supporting the policies of endless war in Afghanistan, a new war on Iran, unquestioned support for Israel’s predatory policies and the horrific human rights violations the United States has engaged in for years, kidnapping, torture and blanket assassinations, the “dronings.”


Subsequent to US involvement in Libya, orders went out to Americans known as “Israeli firsters.”  With little education and background, particularly for those serving in congress, as we all know only too well, none questioned the idea of helping Israel by supporting a vicious dictator that has spouted violent threats and spewed Antisemitism for decades.  None asked why he has never been targeted, why he has gotten a free ride from the media for so long.

No “deep thinkers” were called on.

Our ‘friends” were to mount a “cover operation” to defend the Gaddafi regime because of its strategic relationship to Israel and its close financial associations with US banking houses and oil companies.  Gaddafi had become a goldmine for, not only “big oil” but defense companies as well.  Libya became the second biggest lobbying force in Washington, next to Israel.  While other nations, like China, are castigated for any involvement in American politics, Libya is given ‘carte blanche.”  For a nation some  imagine to be a threat to the security of Israel,

This was no simple task, particularly in light of recent events.

News reports from every source report the use of cluster bombs, artillery and rockets against civilian target in rebel held areas.  Deaths are mounting up and there is a very real human disaster in the making, no one disputes that.

For those who follow Islamophobic pundits and the Zionist pro-war, “sacrifice Americans without thought” mindset, the idea of going “soft” on a brutal Muslim extremist dictator should seem a contradiction yet no one notices the 180


degree turn around.  Curious.  Perhaps years of conditioning paid off and the armies of rednecks and militia types quickly joined the “loafered lefties” on the “peacenik picket lines.”  Are our “tobbacky chawing” friends looking for “hot hippie chicks?”

This has been a hoot!


Where, then, does the controversy come into play?  Why has the “right,” initially clamoring for an attack on Gaddafi as early as February now done a 1000% turnaround?

Let’s take a look at the positions held by this new anti-war group.

Note that there is no call for leaving Afghanistan, nobody got the word out that Afghanistan is a war too. Call our friends “careless.”

The only war they are against is Libya?  Remember, this is the group that pushed for the attack on Iraq, in fact it is the same group that is pushing actively for an attack on Iran, a military action judged by Pentagon officials responsible for our “war plans” as larger than both Vietnam and Korea combined.

Think of this as moral and political schizophrenia.

This new anti-war crowd wants to crush Iran, beginning with attacks on nuclear facilities (reported as “peaceful” by international inspectors), spreading radiation across Asia, followed, of course by a massive ground invasion.   Why do we talk of schizophrenia?  How many contradictory views can a mind with so little reasoning capacity hold at one time?

This is a group that calls America’s actions in Libya, or rather “Obama’s” actions in Libya “war crimes” but, not only supported torture and rendition under Bush but still support it.  Another oversight.  Our new “pro-human rights” advocates seem to have only one human on their list, Colonel Gaddafi.  The rest of the world can be waterboarded, gang raped and tossed into a mass grave like was done in Afghanistan to 2000 POWs early in the war.

This is the group that has lobbied to keep Guantanamo open, then turn around attacking Obama for not closing Guantanamo.


Though opposing DU use in Libya, not by Gaddafi who we have found has used Depleted Uranium munitions in his own country against his own people, though that relationship seems somewhat strained of late, but by the US only, our new ‘anti-nuke’ activists seem to hold even more contradictory views.  They love airport scanners and think they are totally safe.  Not everyone agrees with this, however.

In a report from the Daily Mail:

Dr David Brenner, head of Columbia University’s centre for radiological research, said about airport scanners:

  • he is urging researchers to carry out more tests on the devices to look at the way they affects specific groups who could be more sensitive to radiation.
  • the most likely risk from the airport scanners is a common type of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma
  • If there are increases in cancers as a result of irradiation of children, they would most likely appear some decades in the future. It would be prudent not to scan the head and neck,’
  • the low level beam does deliver a small dose of radiation to the body but because the beam concentrates on the skin – one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the human body – that dose may be up to 20 times higher than first estimated.

The same “anti-war” group is now actively against the use of Depleted Uranium munition in Libya.  That the same individuals are closely aligned and many actively lobby for the nuclear power industry, in fact, none have come out for increased regulations even monitoring of nuclear power facilities in light of the disaster in Japan that has flooded the United States with deadly radiation brings up a point of odd contradiction to the point of hypocrisy.

However, Colonel Gaddafi also has depleted uranium munitions.  Has anyone asked if he is using them?  He is certainly using his cluster munitions, genuine certified Weapons of Mass Destruction, reported by Veterans Today early last month and by the mainstream press 4 days ago.

Israel is using Depleted Uranium in Gaza along with cluster munitions and white phosphorous, which causes deadly burns.  That seems to be OK also, anything is OK, anywhere and by anybody as long as it isn’t against Colonel Gaddafi.

You would think Gaddafi had billions of dollars and was buying off New York and Washington wholesale.  Did you know that $35 billion of the “Fed’s” bail out money went to Gaddafi personally? The Bank of Libya got that much bailout money and the Bank of Libya is Gaddafi’s personal ‘piggybank.’  8 years ago, Gaddafi was considered a terrorist.  Now he seems to have become a member of the Rothschilds family.

Imagine the friends in Washington and elsewhere that helped pull that off.

One of the more amusing things we are hearing is about how Obama is plotting to steal oil from Libya by overthrowing Gaddafi.  There is real humor in this, of course.  Until 2004, Gaddafi was on our “axis of evil” list.   Then Gaddafi got an offer he couldn’t refuse.  We offered to kiss his behind if he agreed to grease a few palms here in the US.

Gaddafi became a neocon.

This was the deal:

  • Turn Libya’s oil over to British and American companies
  • Turn all oil and gas exploration and equipment business over to Vice President Cheney’s company, Haliburnton
  • Donate money to GOP candidates
  • Donate more money to “friends” in France and Italy
  • Join as a full partner in the imaginary Global War on Terror
  • We will pretend we have certified your WMD programs as ended and
  • You can do as you please from now on, we certainly do!

America has been in Iraq for years, is still there.  Hundreds of supertankers of crude were taken from Iraq through both the Gulf, Basra Lite and the ports south of Ceyhan, Kirkuk Lite.  No one counted, no one checked, they just loaded it up, took it to refineries and sold it to the American people as though they had paid real money for it.  It was paid for all right, 5000 Americans died fighting in Iraq and 3000 more were murdered on 9/11.  They paid for the oil, have no doubt about that.

What kind of threat is Obama making against Libyan oil?

His real threat, if you have been paying attention, is to end Republican Party control of Libyan oil.  Other than defending Gaddafi at any cost, how are the GOP geniuses planning to save America?

They are learning to use photoshop:

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?
