The Execution of Muammar Gaddafi - The Prequel

Renowned blogger OutSyed The Box posted two revealing articles on Libya, Killing Gaddafi Spares ICC Embarrassment For US & Britain and Subject: The Gaddafi they are not telling us about

In the former, the article opens with this statement,

"The death of Muammar Gaddafi, killed by NATO and US-backed rebels, will be hailed* by western powers, not merely because they have now seized control of another oil-rich country under the dubious auspices of the “Arab Spring,” but because Gaddafi will be prevented from exposing western support for Al-Qaeda terrorists under the glare of a UN International Criminal Court trial."

Time has comprehensive "specials" specifically for The Middle East in Revolt.

Corroborating that article in OutSyed The Box is this Time piece Rape in Libya: The Crime That Dare Not Speak Its Name,

On June 8 in New York City, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), said there were indications that Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi had ordered the rape of hundreds of women during his violent crackdown on the rebels and that he had even provided his soldiers with Viagra to stimulate the potential for attacks. The ICC will most likely add rape to the list of war-crime charges already levied against Gaddafi. Rape, Moreno-Ocampo told reporters, is a new weapon for Libya's regime. "We had doubts at the beginning," he said, "but now we are more convinced. Apparently, [he] decided to punish, using rape."

Outlandish claims to say the least.

The Arab Spring revolts is traced to events beginning in Tunisia in December of 2010.

In a stunningly accurate commentary 25 February 2011 on the Libyan situation, two months after the catalyst for revolt and uprisings, The Centre for Research on Globalisation ran this article, Libya: Is Washington Pushing for Civil War to Justify a US-NATO Military Intervention?

Excerpt,

Libya has been in the cross-hairs of the Pentagon for years. According to Wesley Clark, the retired general who was the supreme military commander of NATO, Libya was on a Pentagon list of nations to be invaded after Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. The list included Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, and lastly Iran. In Clark’s own words:

So I came back to see him [a high ranking military officer in the Pentagon] a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” — meaning the Secretary of Defence’s office — “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” [18]

In one way or another all the nations on the list have been attacked directly or indirectly and all of them, but Syria and Iran, have succumbed to the U.S. and its allies. Again, the only exceptions are Iran and its ally Syria. In Lebanon, the U.S. has made partial gains, but it is now receding with the decline of the Hariri-led March 14 Alliance

Events unfolding in the Arab world in general and Libya in particular proves the analysis be a precise treatise.

While the Western World applauds and greet the toppling of Muammar Gaddafi with joy for their greedy designs, what troubles me is the manner in which, Gaddafi, his sons and family have met their fate,
Al Arabiya on Sunday broadcast footage taken from Libyan Jamahiriyah TV which it said were the bodies of Saif al-Arab and the three children — two 2-year-olds and a five-month-old. They were wrapped in green cloth with their faces covered in white.
Championing their false crusades for freedom, truth and justice, the downright inhumane manner in which the Gaddafi family have been subject to, with nary any sympathy, exposes once again the US and now the complicit EU dominated Western World's hypocrisy and true crimes against humanity.

We Malaysians must always be on our guard. Threats to sovereignity of countries including ours are real,
The following conclusions emerge from a study of the grants and the statements/Congressional testimonies of the office-bearers of the NED and its associate organisations:

While their activities now have a much wider geographical spread in Asia, covering even Sri Lanka and Nepal, the main focus continues to be against the military regime in Myanmar and the Chinese administration in Tibet and on Cambodia. Another developing target of the NED seems to be Dr.Mahathir Mohammed, the Prime Minister of Malaysia
.
The Government which has ruled the country since it's independence has been entrusted with the peoples faith. It must take cognisance of it's success and heed it's failures.

Malaysian are a diverse yet unique set of people.

We may be an infant democracy but we surely are a matured society no matter what anyone will want to tell us.

Malaysians have always shown mutual respect and regards for each other in the past. In the face of adversity. In good times and bad times. Despite and in spite of all the political and societal upheavals in the present.

We still remain as one.

Indeed, this the reason I firmly believe Malaysia is the most blessed country on this planet.

I am proud to be Malaysian.

Note: All emphasis are mine.
