NATO’s operation in Libya is a perfectly planned political spectacle which marks the beginning of the second colonization of Africaso says Lode Vanoost, former deputy speaker of the Belgian Parliament.
But this is to misunderstand what is happening not only to Libya, not only to Africa, but to the entire World.
Colonization is about Lebensraum. It is the process of occupying land for the purpose of establishing populations derived from that of the occupying power. Colonization is about nationalism and the expansion of strong nations at the expense of the weak.
What is happening in Libya and throughout most of the World today has nothing to do with nationalism or the expansion of living space for the dominant nations of the World. What we are seeing is the exact opposite of nationalism. It is the assimilation of all nations into a single melting pot controlled by a corporate, mainly financial, elite in collaboration with the great Western foundations established by robber barons, past and present.
The objective is not to establish European, or American or Chinese colonies in Africa. The objective is to impose a global system of monopoly capitalist control.
There is nothing nationalistic or racist about this system. Anyone can join the racket. Europeans, Russians, Indians, Chinese, Africans, all are welcome to join the ruling elite, provided only that they have a billion or two behind them and they are prepared to sacrifice the interest of their own people without limit.
Locally, US/NATO installs a compliant native group in government. Members of the puppet regime, the African or central Asian equivalents of Blair/Brown/Cameron/Sarkozy/Obama enjoy both the perquisites of government and the bribes and after-office payoffs of the corporate interests that are to receive unfettered access to national resources and markets.
Gadhafi was, in contrast, an old-fashioned tyrant who believed in building up his country's infra-structure, educational system, and industry. He had the daft idea that Libya is somehow for the Libyans. Well bollocks to that racist poison: hence, We Came, We Saw, He Died.
But once assimilated into the globalist collective, Libyans will, apparently, be able to look forward to a brighter future under the leadership of the Al Qaeda terrorist commander Abdel Hakim Belhadj.
Or as Tony Cartalucci says in a post headed Libya: The Greatest Betrayal:
...let's not labor under any delusions. Obama, Cameron, and Sarkozy are heads of state in name only. It is the depravity and megalomania amongst the banks, corporations, and the institutions they have contrived, that are responsible for the most egregious betrayal in Western history. For 10 years the West's leadership have stirred up hatred and fear amongst their populations to justify a lengthy and very costly global war that has sent US, British, Canadian, German, French, and many other troops, around the world, into dangerous adversity, and ultimately to their graves to fight "the forces of terror."Read more
Now, almost as if savoring the irony, the New York Times, on behalf of the corporate-financier oligarchs that presume dominion over the Western world, fully admit that Al Qaeda terrorists, men who literally killed US troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan are now in Libya and are the benefactors of billions of dollars in Western aid, diplomatic recognition, training, weapons, the lending of intelligence assets, the full unwavering support of the West's "media," NATO-member air support, and even graced with Western special forces fighting side-by-side with them on the ground. This timely confession is also in response in part to revelations that the Libyan rebel commander now filling the streets of Tripoli with indescribable horror is a hardcore Al Qaeda leader, reported first in the Telegraph months ago, and again this week on RT and covered in depth by respected geopolitical analyst Dr. Webster Tarpley...
