OBAMA IS PREPARING TO INVADE LIBYA

On 23 of February United States President had stopped short of recognizing his plan to invade Libya and to take over control of rich oil and gas fields of the country. In a moment when United States hegemony in the Middle East is crumbling a stabile base of supply with energy is a necessity for US. Sponsoring a so called revolution , sending foreign mercenaries is a way to obtain all this . Cuban leader Fidel Castro unveils this plan to destroy Libya and take control over the oil rich country.

The NATO Plan is to Occupy Libya by Fidel Castro


Oil has become the principal wealth in the hands of the great Yankee transnationals; through this energy source they had an instrument that considerably expanded their political power in the world.  It was their main weapon when they decided to easily liquidate the Cuban Revolution as soon as the first just and sovereign laws were passed in our Homeland: depriving it of oil.

Upon this energy source today’s civilization was developed.  Venezuela was the nation in this hemisphere that paid the highest price.  The United States became the lord and master of the huge oil fields that Mother Nature had bestowed upon that sister country.

At the end of the last World War, it started to extract greater amounts of oil from the oil fields ofIran, as well as those in Saudi Arabia, Iraq and the Arab countries located around them.  These became the main suppliers.  World consumption progressively increased to the fabulous figure of approximately 80 million barrels a day, including those being extracted on United States territory, to which later gas, hydro and nuclear energies were added.  Until the beginning of the twentieth century, coal had been the basic source of energy that made industrial development possible, before billions of automobiles and engines consuming the liquid fuel were produced.

The squandering of oil and gas is associated with one of the greatest tragedies, not in the least resolved, which is suffered by humankind: climate change.

When our Revolution arose, Algeria, Libya and Egypt were not yet oil producers and a great part of the abundant reserves of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran and the United Arab Emirates were still to be discovered.

In December of 1951, Libya becomes the first African country to attain its independence after WW II, during which its territory was the stage for important battles between the troops of Germany and theUnited Kingdom, conferring fame and glory on Generals Erwin Rommel and Bernard L. Montgomery.

Ninety-five percent of its territory is completely made up of desert.  Technology permitted the discovery of vital oilfields of excellent quality light oil that today reach one million 800 thousand barrels a day along with abundant deposits of natural gas.  Such riches allowed it to reach life expectancy that is almost at 75 years of age and the highest per capita income in Africa.  Its harsh desert is located over an enormous lake of fossil waters, equivalent to more than three times the land area of Cuba; this has made it possible to construct a broad network of pipelines of fresh water that stretch from one end of the country to the other.

Libya, which had a million inhabitants when it attained independence, today has somewhat more than 6 million.

The Libyan Revolution took place in the month of September of the year 1969. Its main leader was Muammar al-Gaddafi, a soldier of Bedouin origin who, in his early years, was inspired by the ideas of the Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser.  Without any doubt, many of his decisions are associated with the changes that were produced when, as in Egypt, a weak and corrupt monarchy was overthrown in Libya.

The inhabitants of that country have age-old warrior traditions.  It is said that ancient Libyans were a part of Hannibal’s army when he was at the point of destroying Ancient Rome with the troops that crossed the Alps.

One can agree with Gaddafi or not.  The world has been invaded with all kinds of news, especially using the mass media.  One has to wait the necessary length of time in order to learn precisely what is the truth and what are lies, or a mixture of events of every kind that, in the midst of chaos, were produced in Libya.  For me, what is absolutely clear is that the government of the United States is not in the least worried about peace in Libya and it will not hesitate in giving NATO the order to invade that rich country, perhaps in a matter of hours or a few short days.

Those who with perfidious intentions invented the lie that Gaddafi was headed for Venezuela, just as they did yesterday afternoon on  Sunday the 20th of February, today received an fitting response from Foreign Affairs Minister  Nicolás Maduro when he literally stated that he was “wishing that the Libyan people would find, in the exercise of their sovereignty, a peaceful solution to their difficulties, that would preserve the integrity of the Libyan people and nation, without the interference of imperialism…”

As for me, I cannot imagine that the Libyan leader would abandon his country; escaping the responsibilities he is charged with, whether or not they are partially or totally false.

An honest person shall always be against any injustice being committed against any people in the world, and the worst of all, at this moment, would be to remain silent in the face of the crime that NATO is getting ready to commit against the Libyan people.

The leadership of that war-mongering organization has to do it.  We must condemn it!

FIDEL CASTRO: LIBYAN SO CALLED REVOLUTION: A UNITED STATES PLOT

G-20 A Colossal Madhouse and Failure by Fidel Castro

A Colossal Madhouse. This is what the G-20 meeting that started yesterday in Seoul, the capital of the Republic of Korea, has been turned into. Many readers, saturated with acronyms, may wonder: What is the G-20? This is one of the many miscreations concocted by the most powerful empire and its allies, who also created the G-7: the United States, Japan, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy and Canada. Later on they decided to admit Russia in a club that was then called the G-8. Afterwards they condescended to admit 5 important emerging countries: China, India, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa. Then the group membership increased after the inclusion of the member countries of the OECD –another acronym-, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development: Australia, the Republic of Korea and Turkey. The group was also joined by Saudi Arabia, Argentina and Indonesia, and they all summed up 19. The twentieth member of the G-20 was no other than the European Union. As from this year, 2010, one country, Spain, holds the peculiar category of “permanent guest.” Another important international high level meeting is taking place almost simultaneously in Japan: the APEC meeting. If patient readers bother to add to the former group the following countries: Malaysia, Brunei, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong,  Taiwan, Papua-New Guinea, Chile, Peru and Vietnam -all of them with a significant trade volume, with coasts washed by the Pacific Ocean waters- the result would be what is called the APEC: the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum, and with that the entire jigsaw puzzle is completed. They would only need a map, but a laptop could perfectly provide that. At such international events crucial international economic and financial issues are discussed. The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, with decision-making powers when it comes to financial matters, have their own master: the United States. It is important to remember that after the Second World War, the US industry and agriculture remained intact; those in Western Europe were totally destroyed, with the exceptions of Switzerland and Sweden. The USSR had been materially devastated and scored huge material losses that surpassed the figure of 25 million persons. Japan was defeated, in ruins and occupied. Around 80 per cent of the world’s gold reserves were sent to the United States. In a remote, though spacious and comfortable hotel at Bretton Woods, a small community of the US north eastern state of New Hampshire, the Monetary and Financial Conference of the recently created United Nations Organization was held from July 1st to 22 of 1944. The United States was granted the exceptional privilege of turning its paper money into an international hard currency pegged to a gold standard mechanism fixed at 35 US dollars per one Troy ounce of gold. Since the overwhelming majority of countries keep their foreign exchange reserves in the US banks -which is the same as granting a significant loan to the richest country in the world-, the gold pattern mechanism established at least a ceiling for the unrestricted issuance of paper money. This was at least some sort of guarantee on the value of the reserves that countries kept in US banks. Based on that enormous privilege -and for as long as the issuance of paper money was limited by the gold standard mechanism- that powerful country continued to increase its control over the planet’s wealth. The military adventures of the United States in alliance with the former colonial powers, particularly the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands and the recently created West Germany, led that country into other military adventures and wars that plunged the monetary system established at Bretton Woods into a crisis. At the time of the genocidal war in Vietnam, a country against which the US was at the verge of using nuclear weapons, the US President took the shameless and unilateral decision of suspending the dollar’s gold pattern. Ever since then, there have been no limits to the issuance of paper money. That privilege was so much overused that the value of the Troy ounce of gold went from 35 dollars to figures way above 1 400 dollars, that is, no less than 40 times the value it kept for 27 years until 1971, when Richard Nixon took such nefarious decision. The worst thing about the present economic crisis that affects the American society today is that former anti-crisis measures applied at different moments in the history of the US imperialist capitalist system have not helped it now to resume its usual pace. The US is wracked by a national debt close to 14 billion dollars -that is, as much as the US GDP- and the fiscal deficit remains unchanged. The sky-rocketing banks bailout loans and interest rates almost equal to zero have hardly decreased unemployment to figures below 10 per cent. The number of households whose houses are being closed out have barely decreased either. Its gigantic defense budgets which are much higher than those of the rest of the world – and what is worse, those devoted to the war- have continued to grow. The US President, who was elected hardly two years ago by one of the traditional parties, has been dealt the biggest defeat ever remembered in the last three fourths of a century. Such a reaction is a combination of frustration and racism. The US economist and writer William K. Black wrote a memorable phrase: “The best way to rob a bank is to own one”. The most reactionary sectors in the United States are sharpening their teeth and have appropriated an idea that would be the antithesis of the one expressed by the Bolsheviks in October of 1917: “All power to the US extreme right.” Seemingly, the US government, with its traditional anti-crisis measures, resorted to another desperate decision: the Federal Reserve announced it would buy 600 billion US dollars before the G-20 meeting. On Wednesday November 10, one of the most important US news agencies reported that “President Obama had arrived in South Korea to attend meetings of the world’s top 20 economic powers.” “Tensions over currencies and trade gaps have simmered ahead of the summit following a decision by the U.S. to flood its sluggish economy with $600 billion in cash that has alarmed leaders around the globe. “Obama has defended the move by the U.S. Federal Reserve.” On November 11, the same agency reported to the world’s public opinion the following: “A strong sense of pessimism shrouded the start of an economic summit of rich and emerging economies Thursday […] with world leaders arriving in Seoul sharply divided over currency and trade policies. “Established in 1999 and raised to summit level two years ago, the G-20 has— encompassing rich nations such as Germany and the U.S. as well as emerging giants such as China and Brazil — has become the centerpiece of international efforts to revive the global economy and prevent future financial meltdowns…” “Failure in Seoul could have severe consequences. The risk is that countries would try to keep their currencies artificially low to give their exporters a competitive edge in global markets. That could lead to a destructive trade war. “Countries might throw up barriers to imports — a repeat of policies that worsened the Great Depression. There are countries, such as the United States, whose top priority would be “to get China to allow its currency rise” against other currencies that would allow for a reduction of the huge trading surplus of the Asian giant with Washington, since it will make Chinese exports to be more expensive and US imports cheaper. “There are those which irate over U.S. Federal Reserve plans to pump $600 billion of new money into the sluggish American economy”. They see this measure as a selfish move to fill markets with dollars, thus devaluing that currency and giving US exporters and unfair price edge. “The G-20 countries […] are finding little common ground on the most vexing problem: What to do about a global economy that depends on huge U.S. trade deficits with China, Germany and Japan?” “Brazil’s president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, warned that the world would go “bankrupt” if rich countries cut back on consumption and tried to export their way to prosperity.” “‘If the rich countries are not consuming and want to grow its economy on exports, the world goes bankrupt because there would be no one to buy. Everybody would like to sell…’” The summit started amid a rather pessimistic ambiance for Obama and the South Korean President Li Myung-bak, “whose negotiators failed to agree on a long-stalled free trade agreement that it was hoped could be reached this week.” “G-20 leaders gathered Thursday evening at Seoul’s grand National Museum of Korea for the dinner that marked the official start of the two-day event.” “Outside, a few thousand protesters rallied against the G-20 and the South Korean government.” Today, Friday 12, the summit concluded with a declaration that contained 20 items and 32 paragraphs. Presumably, the world is not made up only by the 32 countries that belong to the G-20 or only by those which belong to the APEC. The 187 nations that voted in favor of lifting the blockade against Cuba, as opposed to the two that voted against and the two that abstained, make a total of 192. For 160 of them there is no forum whatsoever where they could express a single word about the imperial plundering of their resources or about their urgent economic needs. In Seoul, the United Nations does not even exist. Won’t that honorable institution say a single word about it? In these days European news agencies have been publishing really tragic news about Haiti –where, in only minutes, an earthquake killed around 250 000 persons in January this year. According to reports, the Haitian authorities have warned about the speed with which the cholera epidemic is spreading throughout the city of Gonaives, in the northern part of the island. The Major of that coastal village, Pierreleus Saint-Justin, asserts he has personally buried 31 corpses on Tuesday, and expected to bury another 15. “Others could be dying as we speak”, he added. The report states that as from November 5, 70 corpses have been buried only in the urban area of Gonaives, but there are more people who have died in rural areas nearby the city. According to the report, the situation is becoming catastrophic in Gonaives. The floods caused by hurricane ‘Tomas’ could make the situation to be even worse.” Last Wednesday, the health authorities in Haiti fixed at 643 the number of victims who had died until November 8 in the entire country as a result of the epidemic. The number of persons infected with the cholera virus during the same period amounts to 9 971. Radio stations report that the figures to be released on Friday could include more than 700 deadly casualties. The government asserts now that the disease is taking a serious toll on the population of Port-au-Prince and is threatening the capital outskirts, where more than one million people have been living in tents since the earthquake on January 12. News are reporting today a figure of 796 deaths and a total of 12 303 persons infected. More than 3 million inhabitants are now threatened; many of them live in tents and among the rubble left by the earthquake, without potable water. The main US agency reported yesterday that the first part of the US Fund for the Reconstruction of Haiti was already on the way now, more than seven months after being committed to help rebuilding the country devastated by the earthquake in January. Reportedly, in the next few days, the agency will transfer approximately 120 million dollars –around one tenth of the amount promised- to the Fund for the Reconstruction of Haiti, managed by the World Bank, as was stated by P.J.Crowley, the State Department’s speaker. An assistant of the State Department stated that the money allocated to the Fund would be used to remove the rubble, build houses, grant credits, support and educational reform program to be implemented by the Inter-American Development Bank and support the Haitian government budget. Not a single word has been said about the cholera epidemics, a disease that for years affected many countries in South America and could spread throughout the Caribbean and other parts of our hemisphere.

SYRIA: THE CENTER OF A NEW STRATEGIC ALLIANCE by Professor Anton Caragea

SYRIA: THE CENTER OF A NEW STRATEGIC ALLIANCE

President Bashar Al Assad, the architect of a new alliance

2009 was the year of a diplomatic change in the Middle East. Quiet but efficient, the Syrian diplomacy supported a new strategy of alliances destined to assure the equilibrium in a fragile area.

Turkey and Syria: a new relation.

Usually, in the strategic landscape of the region, Syria and Turkey could be easily played one against the other, from the memories of Ottoman Empire repression to conflict over Euphrates water quota and the never ending story of border disputes all seemed to put a distance between Damascus and Ankara.

2009 change all this,  with a resolution over the Euphrates water dam , with  joint military exercises and cooperation agreement signed on cultural, tourism and economic field and with a well publicized border crossing opened , that made the former severely fortified border between Syria and Turkey, one of the most relaxed in the region.

As a result of this diplomatic overture Syria will benefit massively economic from the vitality of Turkey market and form tourism investment, where Turkey easily observed that Syrian market, practically untapped by European visitors will be the next El Dorado of tourism in the years to come. Syria also has become the bridge used by Ankara to rebuild the relations with Arab world. In the last 50 years Turkey was interested in building a laic state, oriented towards Western Military Alliance (NATO) and in the last 20 years had also unsuccessfully tried to join European Union.

Now Turkey is rediscovering the Islamic roots and the Arab market potential and economic power and is rebuilding a zone of cultural and political influence in the Middle East. In the new discovered Syrian – Turkey alliance , Turkey obtained a model of reconnecting with Arab world, an economic success story and , the most important, the Damascus support in forging a new alliance also with Iran. The results of Turkey- Syria friendship quickly lead to a new Iran- Turkey friendship, where President Abdullah Gul offered support for nuclear program of Teheran and to embattled Iranian president. The new Turkey- Syria –Iran alliance could offer and economic viable space and a political alliance that supports equilibrium in the Middle East.

Syria- Saudi Arabia connection.

2009 also was the witness of a rare image in Middle East policy, in a two day visit King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia embraced his Syrian counterpart  putting an end to a long rift between Damascus and Riyadh over Lebanon.  If with Turkey Damascus emphasized the necessity of an Islamic alliance to control Middle East and to put in defense an aggressive Israel, in Riyadh the accent was in Sunni reconciliation and cooperation to make a stable Lebanon and a stable Iraq. President Bashar al Assad of Syria has obtained his aim: a stable Lebanon, an inclusive government and maintaining Hezbollah armed to defend Lebanon and in governmental position. The success was un hoped for, after the defeat of Hezbollah in Lebanon elections many feared Lebanon will decay in civil disorder or even civil war. What will be to true extent of the October 2009 understanding between King Abdullah and President Bashar Al Assad will become visible in the next month and years, but already this new connection is shaping the Middle East.

With a solid  financial background offered by Saudi-Syria Company for Industrial and Agricultural Investment and a bilateral Businessmen Forum   the new  friendship promise to be also a trade and economic opportunity for the two countries.

But the most spectacular is the political understanding. In just a month after the King Abdullah visit to Damascus, in Lebanon a new unity government was in place and the country begin regaining strength on economic field and on national reconciliation and Hezbollah obtained the agreement for a maintaining his military apparatus . Also remarkable is the evolution of Iraq situation where the Sunni  alliance is approaching a 35% percent voting support in the polls, becoming the maker or broker of any future Iraq government that will results from March 2010 elections.

The Al Maliki government witnesses this situation with apprehension and when he tried to block some of the Sunni candidate to appear on the ballot he faced even a United States high level intervention by Joe Biden against any person being blocked in participating in elections. A Syrian- Saudi joint proposal backed by United States, this is showing how much Syrian diplomacy changed the rule of games in Middle East in the last year.

Syria: the center of a new Middle East strategy.

The recognition of the new Syrian role in the Middle East come quickly , George Mitchell , the US envoy for the region visited Damascus in 2009 as never in the past . President Sarkozy of France becomes a frequent host and roll up red carpet treatment of President Bashar Al Assad.

What is make the new Syrian political opening remarkable is the astonishing diplomatic capacity of President Basher Al Assad in maintaining in the same time the strong connection with Teheran while negotiating with Paris, Riyadh and Washington. Creating a Sunni alliance with Riyadh will make a stable Iraq and will defuse tensions at eastern border of Syria and will ease the refugee tension on Damascus that had accepted on his territory more than 1.5 millions Iraqi refugees in the last 7 years. Also in Lebanon, Syria has made an important comeback, economic and politic a Lebanon- Syrian- Saudi alliance is the best situation for the entire region. Finally Syria has obtained also a general backing on total retrocession of Golan Heights from Israel as a precondition for any dialogue, in according to United Nations resolution

Damascus in the heart of diplomatic action.

All this comes as a result of a young and talented crew gather around President Bashar al Assad and decided to make Damascus the heart of the diplomatic game of the region. Among this are, the able and always smiling, educated and charming Minister of Information Dr. Mohsen Bilal, that succeed  transforming international media views on Syria, Walid Al Moallem as minister of foreign affairs traveled from Ankara to Teheran and Beirut and in all the major capitals of the world   promoting the new Syrian diplomacy.    Saadala Agaa as minister of tourism played the culture and history card making Syria a stopover for all important tourism events that opened the country to the world. (I have also the opportunity of seeing this powerful new diplomacy in actions with energetic and convincing Ambassador Walid Othman promoting Syria as a cradle of civilization on diplomatic arena).

Now with a powerful and skilled diplomatic team, a strong economy, a stable society and in the middle of strong alliance how will Damascus exploit his success further is everyone question?
