2021 marks the 10-year anniversary of NATO’s violent intervention in Libya and the assassination of Muammar Gaddafi. As was suspected at the time - và was later shown in the published emails of Hilary Clinton - NATO acted to prevent Gaddafi founding an African central bank with its own gold-backed currency. That institution would have challenged the power nguồn of the dollar và finally allowed Africa lớn escape its colonial shackles, writes Ellen Brown.
It was thanks to lớn the 2016 publication of Hillary Clinton"s emails that the reason behind NATO’s entry into Libya was revealed. It was to lớn prevent the creation of an independent hard currency in Africa that would không tính phí the continent from its economic bondage under the dollar, the IMF và the French African franc. That hard currency would have allowed Africa to lớn shake off the last heavy chains of colonial exploitation.
The brief visit of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to lớn Libya in October 2011 was referred to by the media as a "victory lap."
"We came, we saw, he died!" she crowed in a CBS đoạn phim interview on hearing of the capture & brutal murder of Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi.
But the victory lap, wrote Scott Shane and Jo Becker in the New York Times, was premature. Libya was relegated to the back burner by the State Department, "as the country dissolved into chaos, leading lớn a civil war that would destabilize the region, fueling the refugee crisis in Europe and allowing the Islamic State to lớn establish a Libyan haven that the United States is now desperately trying lớn contain."
US-NATO intervention was allegedly undertaken on humanitarian grounds, after reports of mass atrocities under Gadaffi; but human rights organizations questioned the claims after finding a lack of evidence. In the years that followed, however, verifiable atrocities occurred.
The creation of an independent hard currency in Africa would have allowed Africa to lớn shake off the last heavy chains of colonial exploitation.
As Dan Kovalik wrote in the Huffington Post, "the human rights situation in Libya is a disaster, as "thousands of detainees
Before 2011, Libya had achieved economic independence, with its own water, its own food, its own oil, its own money, & its own state-owned bank. It had arisen under Gaddafi from one of the poorest of countries khổng lồ the richest in Africa.
Education và medical treatment were free; having a trang chủ was considered a human right; & Libyans participated in an original system of local democracy. The country boasted the world"s largest irrigation system, the Great Man-made River project, which brought water from the desert lớn the cities and coastal areas; và Gaddafi was embarking on a program lớn spread this model throughout Africa.
But that was before US-NATO forces bombed the irrigation system & wreaked havoc on the country. During the term of President Obama, the situation on the ground in Libya was so bad that he asked his advisors to draw up options including a new military front in Libya. The Defense Department was reportedly standing ready with "the full spectrum of military operations required."
The Secretary of State"s victory lap was indeed premature, if what we"re talking about is the officially stated goal of humanitarian intervention. But Clinton’s emails revealed another agenda behind the Libyan war; that one, it seems, was achieved.
Of the 3,000 emails released from Hillary Clinton"s private e-mail server in late December 2015, about a third were from her close confidante Sidney Blumenthal. One of these emails, dated April 2, 2011, read in part:
"Qaddafi"s government holds 143 tons of gold, & a similar amount in silver ... This gold was accumulated prior lớn the current rebellion & was intended to be used khổng lồ establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed khổng lồ provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA)."
In a "source comment", the original declassified e-mail added:
"According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy"s decision lớn commit France to the attack on Libya. According lớn these individuals Sarkozy"s plans are driven by the following issues:
1. A desire khổng lồ gain a greater giới thiệu of Libya oil production,
2. Increase French influence in North Africa,
3. Improve his internal political situation in France,
4. Provide the French military with an opportunity to lớn reassert its position in the world,
5. Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi"s long term plans lớn supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa."
Conspicuously absent is any mention of humanitarian concerns. The objectives are money, power và oil.
Other explosive confirmations were detailed by investigative journalist Robert Parry. They included admissions of rebel war crimes, of special ops trainers inside Libya from nearly the start of protests, và of Al Qaeda embedded in the US-backed opposition.
