9K116 raksta:Bez tam, nav skaidra vēl viena lieta. Ok, ja jau Kadafi režīms bija tik sociāli progresīvs un ar augstu dzīves līmeni, no kurienes eventuāli radās tāds kvantums dumpinieku? Nu nevar uzvarēt nevienu pilsoņu karu ar izteikta mazākuma atbalstu, tā tas nenotiek, vismaz vēsturē laikam ka nav precedentu. Nu, var jau būt, ka dumpinieku aizjūras draugi izmantoja kādas jaunas polittehnoloģijas, kā pārliecināt Lībijas tautu par to, ka tieši dumpinieku, un nevis valdības lieta ir taisna un pareiza - arī tas, iespējams, ir izskatīšanas jautājums (tikai diez vai bez kādiem faktiem vai papildus infas mēs to varēsim adekvāti izskatīt :lol: )...
Patiesība ir vēl smieklīgāka. Laikā kad Lībija ieguva neatkarību un padzīvoja "brīvā tirgus ekonomikā", viņa bija pasaulē nabagākā valsts, kur tagad ir Āfrikā visbagātākā valsts. Bet dumpinieki radās no netaisnības labumu sadalē, proti, rūpes par pilsētām, kuras pa lielo visā Lībijā ir tikai 3 - Tripole, Bengazī (Kirēna) un Misrata. Kirēna un Misrata uzskatīja, ka ir apdalīta. Turklāt arābu zemēs nav veikta nacionāla "vienādošana", proti, neskatoties, ka viņi visi ir arābi, viņi dažādu arābu cilšu piederīgie un tas ir mūžīgs konflikts. Bez tā, Lībiešiem nebija izaicinājuma, tas bija labs motīvs jauniem Lībiešiem pakarot. Diez vai viņi vispār domāja par ko, pret ko viņi karo. Un Lībija bija "jaunatnes zeme", proti ar lielu jauno cilvēku kvantumu, pateicoties, progresīvai sociālai politikai. Un protams, Kadafi jau bija nodzīvojis savu dzīvi (proti, vecs) jaunā paaudze gribēja savādāku labklājību, un Kadafi to nespēja realizēt. :)
Patiesībā, iesākumā izskatījās ka Kadafi ir nodomājis attiet no varas, lai "bāreņu" tauta - Lībieši - dzīvo bez tēta. :) Vai vismaz nodot varu bērniem, kam rūp Lībija. Bet beidzās nevis ar aizbraukšanu uz kurortu , bet taisni debesīs . Jāatceras, ka Kadafi bija aukstā kara karavīrs. Teju vai pēdējais, jo Asads ir nacionālās "monarhijas" galva, stratēģiskais Krievijas partneris. Kadafi vienlaikus ir viens iespējamajiem torņu gāzējiem, jo visticamāk kā CIP nemaz nezin, kurš īsti tas bija: Irāka, Lībija, Irāna - visas varēja. Reģionāli Lībiju neieredzēja Saūdu Arābija un Izraēla, kas neieredz nevienu. Īsāk sakot, izrēķināties ar Kadafi par viņa vecajiem grēkiem noteikti gribēja daudzi.

Qatar admits it had soldiers on ground in Libya operation
AFP , Wednesday 26 Oct 2011
A sign that reads 'Gala Liberation of Libya'(Reuters)

Qatar revealed for the first time on Wednesday that hundreds of its soldiers had fought alongside Libyans in their battle to topple longtime despot Muammar Gaddafi.
"We were among them and the numbers of Qataris on ground were hundreds in every region," said Qatari chief of staff Major General Hamad bin Ali al-Atiya.
The announcement marks the first time that Qatar has acknowledged it had military boots on the ground in Libya.
Previously the gas-rich country said it had only lent the support of its air force to NATO-led operations to protect civilians during the eight-month uprising, which ended when Gaddafi was felled with a bullet to the head after being captured last week.

Gaddafi's family to sue NATO
Published: Wednesday, Oct 26, 2011, 19:22 IST
Place: Paris | Agency: IANS

Relatives of slain Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi will sue NATO in the International Military Court in The Hague for war crime charges, Gaddafi's family lawyer said.

"NATO helicopters opened fire on (Gaddafi's) convoy. This convoy did not pose any threat to civilians. It was an operation to eliminate the Libyan leader, planned by the North Atlantic alliance," Marcel Ceccaldi was quoted as saying by France-based Europe1 radio station. The lawyer also criticized the decision to display Gaddafi's corpse at a shopping centre in Misrata for four days.

Gaddafi, who ruled Libya for 42 years, died shortly after being captured alive by National Transitional Council fighters near his hometown Sirte Oct 20. The UN human rights office as well as Russia and the US have called for a probe into the leader's killing.

U.N. ends mandate for NATO operations in Libya

By Louis Charbonneau
UNITED NATIONS | Thu Oct 27, 2011 3:30pm EDT

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council on Thursday canceled its authorization for a seven-month-old NATO military operation in Libya that led to the ouster and death of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
The mandate was terminated despite a request from Libya's interim government for the Security Council to wait until the National Transitional Council made a decision on whether it wants NATO to help it secure its borders.
The 15-nation council unanimously approved a resolution terminating the U.N. mandate, which set the no-fly zone over Libya and permitted foreign military forces, including NATO, to use "all necessary measures" to protect Libyan civilians.

Libya insists Saif al-Islam Gaddafi should be tried at home
NTC says that the International Criminal Court should not be allowed to try Saif Gaddafi for his role in Libya's civil war
* Martin Chulov in Tripoli
* guardian.co.uk, Saturday 29 October 2011 20.40 BST

The seven-month air blockade will be lifted on Tuesday, meaning that Gaddafi, who is believed to be in the south, may no longer have to fear the Nato jets that attacked a convoy carrying his father, as he attempted to flee from Sirte.

A convoy carrying Saif was also hit by an airstrike as it began its journey south on 19 October from the desert town of Bani Walid, which he had used as a hideout since shortly after the fall of the capital. "We knew he was there, and we knew Motassim [his brother] was in Sirte," said Bani. "We intercepted a telephone call between them, and after that Saif went south." Since then, the ICC says that a go-between has been in contact, sounding out the court about Gaddafi handing himself in to face an indictment issued against him in June, which alleges that he incited people to murder during the eight-month civil war.

Meanwhile, at the scene of the initial February uprising, the courthouse on Benghazi's foreshore, a black flag identical to that used by al-Qaida was recently raised next to the new Libyan flag. It continued to fly on Saturday, despite the concerns of some residents.

Bani said that he has seen reports of the flag, which represents a claim by fundamentalist Islamists for a stake in post-Gaddafi Libya. He declined to comment ,saying a response should come from the civilian leadership. In his last interview before the fall of Tripoli, Saif Gaddafi had suggested that radical Islamists would vie for a prominent role in the absence of strongman ruler. However, he had also suggested that he had won the support of Islamic rebels from eastern Libya, whom the Gaddafi regime had viewed as subversive threats through much of its 42 years in power. Those claims of Saif Gaddafi now seem tenuous, with Islamists throughout Libya determined to capture the remnants of the Gaddafi regime before they can flee, or are extradited to face the ICC. "He is the last main piece of all of this," said Ibrahim Beit al-Mal, the commander of the Misrata military council. "But where he is, is a mystery. After Bani Walid he vanished."

Without Nato air cover, intercepting the fugitive's convoy in southern Libya would be extremely difficult for Libyan forces. What remains of Colonel Gaddafi's air force is not known, and, in any event, the porous border with Niger could serve as a sanctuary if Saif Gaddafi is able to secure the support of the Tuareg tribes, which had been supported by his father for several generations.

Libya: Tripoli airport closed after rogue militia attacks garrison
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/de ... rt-militia
Fierce fighting closed Tripoli international airport on Saturday night as rival militias battled for control of the facility in the latest upsurge of violence in Libya's volatile capital.
Hours after Libya's president, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, made a plea for all sides to work for reconciliation, unidentified militia attacked the airport garrison.
Television footage showed exchanges of fire at the perimeter of the airport, which is held by militia from the town of Zintan, 90 miles south of the capital, under the control of defence minister Osama Jweli.
A camera crew from al-Jazeera reported they were assaulted by gunmen close to the scene of the fighting. Hours later Tripoli airport was shut and Libya closed airspace over the capital amid fears that three pickup trucks mounting anti-aircraft guns, stolen by militia fighters, could be used to target incoming airliners.
In a separate incident, the commander-in-chief of the Libyan national army, Major General Khalifa Belgasim Haftar, was ambushed by gunmen who set up a checkpoint in the capital and attacked his convoy. Haftar's spokesman said the general's jeep managed to escape and two militiamen were later arrested.

One security source blamed the violence on the introduction of numerous private militias, recruited by local businessmen from among unemployed young men in a city littered with weapons, and deployed to protect shops and businesses.
Jalil made his plea for calm at a National Reconciliation Conference held in Tripoli, his call echoed by one of the world's most influential Islamic clerics, Yusuf al-Qaradawi.
Al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian trustee of the Oxford University Centre for Islamic Studies, urged former rebels and forces loyal to the late dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, to come together: "We want people reconciling, we don't want people full of hatred. Let somebody lead you."

'Cleansed' Libyan town spills its terrible secrets
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-16051349
The 30,000 people living in a town in northern Libya have been driven out of their homes, in what appears to have been an act of revenge for their role in the three-month siege of the city of Misrata. So what really happened in the town of Tawergha, are the accusations of brutality against the town's residents fair and what does it say about hopes for national unity?

Gaddafi supporters 'try to blow up Tripoli power grid'
A Libyan militia chief said on Sunday his fighters had captured nine supporters of otherthrown leader Muammar Gaddafi who had been plotting to blow up Tripoli's power grid on New Year's Eve.

Abdullah Naker, the leader of Tripoli's Revolutionists Council.
4:38PM GMT 01 Jan 2012
"We captured explosives with them that they bought from the black market and now we're interrogating them," said Abdullah Naker, the commander of Tripoli's Revolutionist Council.
Militia groups who helped oust Gaddafi last year still hold considerable power in Libya, and have taken the law into their hands in several areas, setting up road blocks and arresting suspects despite the presence of an official police force.
Mr Naker said the nine Gaddafi supporters had been funded by a group of businessmen affiliated to the former leader, who was killed in October after militias overran his home town of Sirte.
Mr Naker also accused the nine and their supporters of trying to relaunch the former leader's official television station Al Jamahiriya.
The men had been planning to set off a number of explosions in the capital, state media reported, quoting a statement from Libya's electricity and renewable energy authority.

Fierce clashes in Tripoli between two former Libyan rebel groups
Two former Libyan rebel factions clashed on Tuesday in hours of gun battles in central Tripoli that left five fighters dead, a Tripoli military council official said.
3:40PM GMT 03 Jan 2012
Former rebels of Tripoli and a separate group of fighters from the city of Misurata fought with machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and anti-aircraft guns.
Col Walid Shouaib, a member of Tripoli Military Council, said the clashes were triggered by arrest of a Misurata fighter on New Year's Eve by Tripoli fighters. He was suspected of robbery and the Misurata fighters were trying to free him.
Disparate groups of former revolutionary fighters have clashed repeatedly since the end of the eight-month civil war that toppled Muammar Gaddafi's regime in October. Disbandment of these armed groups, which are divided by the regions where the operate, has posed a challenge to Libyan authorities.
While playing a vital role in overseeing security of key state institutions in the capital, the uncontrolled ownership of weapons and the absence of a central security administration has given the militias a free hand in ruling areas under their control.
According to Shouaib, the tensions between the two militias began on the night of the arrest when a group of Misurata fighters tried to free the detained man, but failed. Instead, they were arrested as well. A top Misurata commander managed to mediate the release of all the men except for the one arrested for robbery.

Former Gaddafi colonel becomes Libyan army's new chief of staff
A former colonel in Muammar Gaddafi's military has been appointed as the new chief of staff of the Libyan army, two members of the country's ruling National Transitional Council said.
8:36PM GMT 03 Jan 2012
A former colonel in Muammar Gaddafi's military has been appointed as the new chief of staff of the Libyan army, two members of the country's ruling National Transitional Council said.
Yussef al-Mangush, who took voluntary retirement from Gaddafi's military and even participated in the rebellion against the former leader, was promoted to the rank of general and appointed as chief of staff, said NTC member Abdelrazzak al-Aradi.
His appointment was confirmed by Fathi Baaja, another member of the NTC from the eastern city of Benghazi, the cradle of the uprising that toppled Gaddafi.
The post has been vacant since the murder in July of General Abdel Fatah Yunis, who commanded the former rebels in eastern Libya against Gaddafi's diehards.
Mangush is currently a deputy defence minister in the interim government of Prime Minister Abdel Rahim al-Kib.

ICC gives Libya two weeks to decide what to do with Saif Gaddafi
The International Criminal Court has given the new Libyan authorities two weeks to decide what to do with Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the imprisoned son of the former leader. Gaddafi, who was captured on Nov 19, has been indicted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague for two counts of alleged crimes
By Richard Spencer, Middle East Correspondent
5:47PM GMT 10 Jan 2012

Saif al-Islam, once seen as a reformist possible successor to his father, faces indictments before the Hague-based ICC for complicity in crimes allegedly committed by his father in his attempts to put down the revolution against his rule last February.
The Libyan authorities say he should be tried in Libya itself, however, and have been holding him in a house in the town of Zintan, south-west of the capital Tripoli, since his capture in the Sahara at the end of November.
Under ICC rules, countries must say what they intend to do with captives wanted by the court. Libya had been given until Tuesday to give information of Saif al-Islam's conditions, access to legal advice, and whether and when they will hand him over.
As the deadline approached, the Libyan government formally requested an extension to the end of January, but the ICC said in a statement that a response after January 23 would cause an "undue delay in the proceedings".
Although Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the chief prosecutor, has accepted Libya's right to hold the trial, ICC judges can still rule they wish to hear the case themselves if they deem conditions there not suitable.
The Libyan authorities themselves have given no indication of how they would handle the formidable logistics of setting up a legal system that would satisfy the international community as well as allowing the trial to be witnessed by hundreds of international journalists.
They told a Human Rights Watch investigator who was taken to see their captive last month that he would be allowed to see a lawyer once a secure prison had been established for him in Tripoli.

Enemy at the gates? Libyans storm NTC headquarters
Published: 21 January, 2012, 22:20
Edited: 22 January, 2012, 22:51
http://rt.com/news/libya-storm-ntc-headquarters-375/
Some 200 Libyan protesters stormed the headquarters of the country’s transitional government on Saturday in a show of frustration with the slow pace of national reform. But will their calls for post-Gaddafi transparency fall on deaf ears?

­Two weeks of protests in the city of Benghazi – the heart of the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi last February – came to a head when protestors used grenades to blow the gates off the National Transitional Council (NTC) compound housing the interim government.

The protesters, who demand a meeting with the country’s interim leaders, shouted through the windows at NTC members who could be seen pacing inside of the building, the Associated Press reports.

The demonstrators had previously set up a small encampment outside the compound as they called for greater justice and transparency from Libya’s new leadership.

But tensions mounted when the NTC passed a series of laws determining how parliamentary elections would be conducted this June – making no mention of how seats in the new legislature would be divvied out between different cities and regions.

Seeing that the allocation of legislative seats will ultimately shape the distribution of the country’s vast oil wealth, many demonstrators contend the NTC is not seeking to fulfill the people’s long-standing democratic aspirations.

“The election laws have not been approved by thousands of Libyans, and do not honor those who died for our freedom,” said Tamer al-Jahani, a lawyer taking part in the protest. “We don’t want to replace one tyrant with another,” AP cites him as saying.

While some were centered on the future of the country’s political institutions, others were focused on the plight of those anti-Gaddafi forces injured during the war.

However, calls for greater freedoms belie the actual situation on the ground in post-Gaddafi Libya.

According to a November report by the UN Secretary General, at least 7,000 men, women and children were illegally detained by rebel militias in Libya. Many of them are being held in prisons outside of NTC control, and have been subjected to torture and other systematic forms of mistreatment.

Clashes between rival militia factions have also become an increasingly common sight in the streets of Tripoli.

Coupled with warnings from British officials last month that senior level al-Qaeda leaders have been making their way to Libya to capitalize on an ever-expanding security vacuum, the developments could signal a potentially explosive crisis brewing in the country.

­Radio host and author Stephen Lendman believes the crowds are unhappy with the new, Western-backed government.

“A couple of hundred former rebel fighters stormed the Parliament in Benghazi," he says. "They complain they are not given aid properly, they are not treated properly. The new election was drawn up, and the people were promised they would have a say, but the people have had no say whatsoever – everything has been secretive. And the NTC government – let’s face it – is the puppet of Western governments serving Western interests, having absolutely no interest in ordinary Libyans.”

­It's Iraq all over again, says international consultant Adrian Salbuchi, with the flag of democracy brought in to guard Western geopolitical interests and pump oil while the "invaded" nation’s needs are ignored.

The mission of the ruling National Transitional Council is not, Salbuchi says, "to improve life. Libya already had a high standard of living under Gaddafi. What Libya does have is ninth-largest global oil reserve, and the top oil reserve in Africa. And that is what the National Transitional Council is being supported for. They promote Western oil companies, Western financial interest in Libya,” he told RT.

NTC head may resign – if he makes it out alive
Published: 23 January, 2012, 07:14
http://rt.com/news/ntc-resign-libya-regime-411/
The deputy head of Libya’s National Transitional Council is resigning in light of continuing protests. Sukant Chandan, a spokesman for British Civilians for Peace in Libya, says the Council’s head may resign as well – if he doesn’t get killed first.

­“The Gaddafi regime could control all of Libya, could find peace amongst all the tribes. The new regime cannot even control something in one town or one area," Chandan told RT. "They’ve been selling their oil and natural resources and sovereignty to NATO. And now the thieves – that is, the rebels – are all falling out with each other, they can’t even be paid by their own masters." He continues, "they've performed regime change on behalf of the former colonialists of Libya.”

Chandan says those who wish not to believe what Gaddafi said of life in Libya after the fall of his regime should listen to Jalil, who he says “probably is about to resign – if he’s not assassinated, like NTC military head Abdel Fatah Yunis.”

The analyst says Jalil has warned that Libya is “in danger of descending into a bottomless pit.”

“So really, this is the achievement of ‘freedom and democracy’ by NATO,” Chandan concluded.

And Abdel Hafiz Ghoga, the NTC's deputy head, has been accused of opportunism after dropping his allegiance to Gaddafi as the uprising kicked off. On Saturday, crowds of protesters stormed the NTC headquarters in Benghazi, angered by how the council has been handling the country's assets. Demonstrators threw rocks and metal bars at the building, breaking windows and damaging Jalil's car.

Mass rallies have been raging for weeks in the city of Benghazi, which is considered the cradle of the revolution that toppled the Gaddafi regime.

Gaddafi loyalists take back Bani Walid
Reports say at least four people killed in clashes between besieged NTC forces and well-organised pro-Gaddafi fighters

10.10am: Reports that Bani Walid has been taken by pro-Gaddafi fighters are not true, according to Aziz Daw, a British based dentist who comes from the town and is in regular contact with relatives there.
In phone interview, Aziz blamed the reports on propaganda from local National Transitional Council official Mohammed Bashir. He said fighting broke out between rival militias the 93 brigade and the May 28 brigade.
Aziz said there is frustration at the way the new authorities have run Bani Walid. The NTC is failing to reconcile differences in Libya, he added.

Libyan militias are holding thousands of people in secret detention centres, while the interim government struggles to assert authority, the UN has heard.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-16735217
The Security Council was told recent violence in Tripoli, Bani Walid and Benghazi highlighted the problem.
More than 8,000 pro-Gaddafi supporters are being held by militia groups, amid reports of torture, UN officials said.
The charity Medecins Sans Frontieres says it has suspended some operations because its work was being "exploited".
The humanitarian medical organisation said it had stopped work in detention centres in the north-western city of Misrata because some patients were being brought in for care between interrogation sessions.
At least four people died in clashes in Bani Walid, a former Gaddafi stronghold, on Monday.

Several people have died after being tortured by militias in Libyan detention centres, humanitarian group Amnesty International has said.
It claimed to have seen patients in Tripoli, Misrata and Gheryan with open wounds to their head, limbs and back.
Meanwhile, charity Medecins Sans Frontieres has suspended operations in Misrata after treating 115 patients with torture-related wounds.
The UN says it is concerned about the conditions in which patients are held.
"The torture is being carried out by officially recognised military and security entities as well as by a multitude of armed militias operating outside any legal framework," a spokesman for London-based Amnesty said.

Groundhog year: Cooking Syria ‘Libya-style’
Libya is marking the first anniversary of the revolution that brought the country plenty of destruction, but not as much democracy. And while NATO denies intentions to interfere with Syria, Libyans have learned the hard way “freedom” is exported.
­NATO has 'no intention’ 2.0

­"NATO has no intention whatsoever to intervene in Syria. We appreciate very much all the efforts to find a solution to the conflict in Syria. I appreciate the work of the Arab League. I do believe that a regional solution has to be found," NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in Brussels on Wednesday.

It would be easy to take these words at face value, if less than a year ago Fogh Rasmussen did not declare that NATO would not intervene in the conflict between Muammar Gaddafi and the Libyan opposition:

"I would like to stress that NATO has no plans to intervene [into Libya] and we have not received any request," he said in February 2011.

The Libyan recipe is being followed with utmost care, down to the tiniest detail. Washington has already come up with calls for "Friends of a democratic Syria" to unite and rally against the government of President Bashar Al-Assad.

The club has every chance of growing into a new iteration of the “Friends of Libya,” which oversaw international help for opponents of late, deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Moreover, the group coordinated NATO military operations to protect Libyan civilians, something that is not envisioned in Syria – for now.
­Excellent investment vs. Humanitarian mission

Still, humanitarian and peacekeeping rhetoric around Syria is reaching a boiling point, and many cannot get rid of an unpleasant feeling of déjà vu. During the uprising in Libya, the UN and NATO dashed to the country to end “crimes against humanity,” but with the very beginning of the military operation, many wondered at the sudden zest for human rights.

“You have to find a political and economic interest before you start believing in humanitarian reasons. In all humanitarian interventions there is another reason that is much more important,” science professor at Paris West University Nanterre La Defense Pierre Guerlain told RT.

In Libya’s case, no sooner had UN resolution 1973 on the “no-fly zone” been adopted, than the National Transitional Council (NTC) approached the French leadership with a tempting offer. France was to get 35 per cent of Libya’s oil sector in exchange for “full and constant support” of the NTC in its fight against Muammar Gaddafi, reported France’s Liberation newspaper.

British author and Guardian journalist Simon Jenkins says that access to oil and the Mediterranean were the real causes of the Libyan war.

“There are mixed motives in all these interventions. We tend to intervene in countries where we have some interests – in this case oil,” he told RT.

Another lucrative option for Western powers was pricey rebuilding contracts. First, bombs tore Libya apart, and later Western companies got paid to put the country back together. According to the UK Department of Trade and Investment, the value of contracts to rebuild Libya in areas ranging from electricity and water supplies to healthcare and education, could amount to upwards of US $300 billion over the next 10 years.

The game in Syria seems more complicated, as the country is but a modest producer of oil and gas. The Arab Gas Pipeline, which exports Egyptian natural gas to Jordan, Lebanon and Israel, might be of some regional interest. But even after the pipeline is expanded to Turkey, Iraq and Iran, its importance will hardly be global.

Targeting Damascus may be a geopolitical tool employed against Iran in the regional power reshuffle. A revival of Iran’s empire casts worries on Turkey and Qatar, and with Tehran’s growing influence over post-war Iraq and Afghanistan, an attack on Assad’s regime, a close Iranian ally, seems only too logical.

“Damascus is to be persecuted not exactly for repressing the opposition, but because it is unwilling to sever ties with Tehran,” the head of the Russian national security council, Nikolay Patrushev, told Kommersant newspaper.
­Western troops out – off with democracy?

NATO, taking control of the Libyan operation on March 31, 2011, interpreted the UN resolution the way it saw fit. Under the flag of “protecting civilians,” the alliance quickly focused on getting rid of Muammar Gaddafi and his regime, and propping up a government, which is now more or less in power.

In late October, Gaddafi was assassinated in his hometown of Sirte, an event videotaped and broadcasted by media around the world. This brought the fighting to an end, and NATO was quick to declare their campaign in the country as one of the “most successful in NATO history.”

Given all that, what is to become of Syria if the West chooses to bring democracy there as well? The opposition Syrian National Council has already offered Gaddafi’s fate to President Assad and his family.

Three months into a relative peace in Libya, the circumstances surrounding Muammar Gaddafi’s death remain a mystery. Armed groups still answer to no central authority in NATO’s newly-liberated Libya, and refuse to give up their arms.

On February 16, the UN General Assembly passed the new draft resolution on Syria calling for President Assad to step down and demanding a transition to democratic rule.

Massive ex-Gaddafi weapons cache turns up in Algeria
Published: 21 February, 2012, 02:10
Two caches with 43 anti-aircraft missiles and other weaponry have been unveiled in Algeria. Local security forces say the arsenal was smuggled in from Libya and buried near the border.
­The two caches were found near the town of In Amenas, in southern Algeria on the Libyan border. That is according to Algerian daily El Watan, which cited on Monday an unnamed security official. One cache contained Russian 9K338 Igla-S (NATO reporting name SA-24 Grinch) and 9K32 Strela-2 (SA-7 Grail) shoulder-fired surface-to-air missile systems – all taken from the arsenals of Libya’s former leader, the late Muammar Gaddafi.
No official Algerian response has followed. It is reported, though, that information of the contraband came from Libyan arms smugglers whose business was stopped last year by Algerian forces. As part of a security plan initiated jointly with Niger and Mali, Algerian authorities succeeded in blocking about thirty infiltration routes used by traffickers and terrorists. In 2011, the security services had arrested 87 Libyans who smuggled weapons from their country into Algeria.
Algeria is not the only country that sounded an alarm about intensive arms trafficking on its borders. The black market for arms has inundated many other African states with munitions from Libya, says Russia’s special envoy to Africa Mikhail Margelov.
“I recently visited Nigeria, Mali, Mauritania and Morocco, and for these four countries what is happening in the desert is a real nightmare,” he told RT in January. “One of the tribal leaders said to me, what happened in Libya undermined the market. I asked, ‘What market?’ He said, ‘Today, a Soviet or Chinese-made MANPAD [man-portable surface-to-air missile] costs the price of two Kalashnikovs.' It’s a real problem, because arms trafficking can end up somewhere in the south of Africa or somewhere in the south of Europe.”
It is estimated that Gaddafi’s arsenals numbered some 20,000 of such missiles – the largest among non-producing countries. The main fear here is that all this deadly cargo can now be easily smuggled out of Libya by various terrorist groups, including local branches of Al-Qaeda, and then used to attack civil aviation targets anywhere in the world.
Thousands of missiles are already believed to have gone missing when Libyan rebels toppled Muammar Gaddafi and helped themselves to government stockpiles.
