    Libya: Nato must do more, say France and UK

    The UK's William Hague urged Nato allies to intensify military operations, but a Nato general said the alliance was "doing a great job".

    Libyan rebels opposing Col Gaddafi have been pushed back despite the air raids.

    Pro-Gaddafi forces launched fresh artillery attacks on the rebel-held city of Misrata on Tuesday.

    The last rebel-held area in the west, Misrata has been under siege for more than six weeks, with rights groups warning of a shortage of food and medical supplies.
    Euro-tards start a mindless war, Obama joins in to save face and now the Euros want the US to hold the bag again. Another reason why NATO is nothing but a relic of the Cold War.

    Then I encourage France and the UK to follow through with bold action themselves, to complete whatever their goal is.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: Libya: Nato must do more, say France and UK

    The statement was made at a European Ministers meeting for a reason. Britain and France are seeking extra support for a further 10 missions per day from their European NATO allies. They are aware that the Americantards are unwilling, which will make President Obama politically reluctant to do so.

    Behind Libya war

    664. Libya oil as payment (4/11/2011)

    Though the media use beautiful words “humanity”, “protect people”, “democracy” to cover up the war the Western powers activated, there is always dirty deals behind the scenes. Three years ago, I wrote “541. Eiffel Tower bombing had been planned for Iran war (2/28/08)” and “542. Terror attack, prophecy and payment (3/4/08) “. In which I point out “What will Sarcozy get for the secret deal of Eiffel Tower bombing and Iran war? Here is one of the payments.

    "US lawmakers blast Boeing defense contract snub
    Mar 1 (2008)

    US lawmakers have reacted angrily after the US military awarded a 35-billion-dollar aircraft deal to Europe's Northrop Grumman/EADS group, in a major blow to US manufacturers Boeing.

    US lawmakers blast Boeing defense contract snub
    Three years later, there is an abrupt turn.

    Pentagon Awards Boeing Tanker Contract Worth $35 Billion
    Decision Follows Decade of Wrangling; EADS, Alabama Lose Out; 50,000 Jobs in Washington, Kansas
    Feb. 24, 2011

    Pentagon and Air Force Award Re-Fueling Tanker Contract to Boeing over EADS - ABC News
    The background of this abrupt turn was: “Libya unrest: Air strike on protesters in Tripoli”, “ Libya unrest: Gaddafi forces violently quell Tripoli protest” which took place in mid-February. When US found a chance (likely created by CIA) to keep the profitable tanker contract for itself, they change the deal. The military contract was replaced by Libya oil interest. So I wrote” Libya deal”,

    “3/25/2011

    It should have been a secret deal among US, Great Britain and France.

    Libya's oil interest has been sold to head countries of the NATO to exchange their support of Iran war. That's why France is so active to bomb Libya. War on Iran needs justification - a 911 alike terror attack. Britain and France would allow such false flag "terror attack" taking place in their territory. That possibly would be a dirty bomb attack.

    Watch for the coming “terror attack” on Eiffle Tower, though in the name of “Islamic extremists”, actually from the puppets of western intelligence.”

    As I always revealed the plots of the Feds in advance, they tried their best to discredit my prediction. This time they have another abrupt turn in Libya deal. In early April, the news headlines were: “Gadhafi troops recapture oil town” (A.P. 3/31); “Libya rebel leader says NATO falls short in mission”(A.P. 4/6); “Apparent NATO strike hits rebel convoy in Libya” (A.P. 4/8); “More Libyan rebels slain by NATO attacks” (4/9 Los Angeles Times) When the army of Gadhafi is heavily damaged by NATO’s air attack, how could it become such a condition?

    A news of 4/8 solved my puzzle. The news in Chinese newspapers asked, “Official merchant? Merchant official? Chief Director assigned Governor of Province” (Watch China, 4/8). It says that the Chief Director of the Board of China Petro-Chemistry – Su Shu Ling, is assigned by Beijing to be a member of the committee of Communist Party of Fujian as well as the Vice Governor of FujiJan Province. He still keeps his post as Chief Director of the Board of China Petro-Chemistry. Chinese web site criticize, “ After all is he an official, or a merchant?”. “How could it be possible? Like Bill Gates to be assigned Mayor of Los Angles appointed by Washington”.

    The unusual appointment on 4/2 indicates the Libya oil interest now is the payment to China. Chinese oil company is the interest receiver. Select Fujian is not a coincidence. From the beginning, I said it is the original place the Feds and their Chinese counterpart frame the drug case. (see “ 142. Drug case in Fujian” and “143. Drug case in Fujian (continuation)(7/10)” ) Not everybody willing to commit a crime to frame a drug case and kill a lot of innocent people. So there was such a show. They link the oil interest to the framed drug case and give Su all the high ranking title to commit the crime. Fujian Province is also my wife’s home country where she has many relatives. I worry there will be a mass killing to silence people.

    The change of secret deal is swift, abrupt and very effective. All mean there will be big case in April and May when the Patriot Act ends. (Possible starting date is around 4/17.) Three days ago I was told Y came to US again. I have alleged him being a government informant. (see “ 639. FISA plot continues (6/27/2010)” ) I think he will play a Troy wood Horse in coming drug case. There will be “terror attack” in US, G.B. and France to justify war on Iran. Though they changed the payment. There must be some other deal to compensate French.

    France and Britain can't escalate their operations so as to put another 10 sorties in the air, a day?

    That confirms that if there was a real war, France and Britain would be the last ones we could count to help fight it.

    This is why it is so important that the United States maintain such a strong military.

    France and Britain are committed elsewhere too. Britain not least in support of America's wars of choice, and France in other UN commitments in Africa.

    They're no more committed than the United States. I think it's damn sad that both of them, combined, can't handle Libya without help.

    "the americantards are unwilling"??? Not sure what the current counts are, but the initial NATO action on Libya consisted of the launching of 200 or so guided missiles. All but a couple of which were US military. Am thinking that America has ponied up more than their share up to this point, eh....??
