US officials familiar with the situation say that the Trump Administration is likely to announce a dramatic “ramping up” of US involvement in Libya, appointing a new US ambassador, and setting up a permanent US military presence in the nation.

US Looks to Dramatically Escalate Involvement in Libya

AFP 2017/ VANO SHLAMOV

While the military operation appears primarily aimed at supporting the “unity government” in Tripoli, officials suggest it might also see some US troops deployed to war-torn Benghazi, currently under the control of a rival faction, with an eye toward eventually uniting the country under unity government rule.

President Obama decided to back the unity government during the Sirte offensive, sending US troops to fight ISIS there with the expectation that the unity government’s victory would give them a massive advantage over the rival governments. This has not proven the case, however, with East Libya mostly dominated by the Tobruk parliament and the LNA, and the unity government struggling with the Tripoli parliament over the capital.

The US officials say that the administration is happy with their increased involvement in Somalia, and is looking to replicate that sudden escalation in Libya, trying to carve out a permanent US presence in the country, and ensure that whoever ends up in power becomes a US client.

    Put U.S. troops on the ground, and you’ll be certain to escalate the recruitment for every Islamic extremist group in the region and inspire violence and ‘asymmetrical’ warfare everywhere.

    America LOVES wars that are in a perpetual state of FAILURE. Its great money. Of course, public schools, social security and public infrastructure will all have to be drastically cut so that more money can be made by the tiny minority of psychotic rich folks.

    But that’s a sacrifice America is always willing to make! Who needs education when there are hopeless and meaningless wars to fight? Especially while victimizing millions of innocent people!

    • Concrete Mike

      I agree, instead of making tanks we should bé making trucks and excavators and dozers, rebuild our crumbling infrastructure. Instead we piss IT away… Fools

      Perpetual wars will bankrupt US, by the end of this year the debt will be 21 trillion.

      • BlueInGreen

        Yes and no. Perpetual wars fund the MIC which in turns funds the US and whoever is apart of the cabal.

        • Jesus

          Forget the MIC, wars are financed with nonexistent money that the US treasury has to pay interest on. At current interest Treasuries pay anywhere from 1-2.5% that takes a 400-500 billion bite out of the budget every year. If interest rates were to double or US treasury would need a trillion dollar to service the debt every year,

    • BlueInGreen

      That’s the point. Continue the war and fund the MIC at all costs.

    How do you define brain damaged stupidity? Answer: US foreign policy in the 21st century. After destroying the country, with the help of Britain and France (two of many lapdogs and puppets), the US now wants to try to assist and stabilize the country. If the countries of the EU were not such weak little insects (especially the ones receiving the brunt of the migrant invasion) they would tell the US to go to Hades and stay out of this part of the world. Traurig aber wahr!

    I am not sure there is much will in the US for more intervention. The more these things are publicized, the more pissed of, unemployed people will say enough is enough.

    Could someone explain what is the story behind USA/UK supporting Haftar and LNA, along with Russia? Is it because Qatar can no longer support the proxy terrorists, and US realize LNA is the only real game in town? Second question: what are they planning to do with the occupation of Tripoli in western Libya?

    If you look at the map LNA today controls a vast majority of Libyan oilfields, located in the east.

    My Disqus account was blocked at Antiwar.com for comments on Israel. So it may be another lying Jew media disinformation psychological operations site that isn’t antiwar or pro peace.

    The protecting Americans from the Jew pedophile cult act needs to be passed and signed into law outlawing the Jew pedophile cult in the US, confiscating it’s assets, imprisoning the cult leaders and practitioners guilty of pedophilia and other crimes, cancelling aid to Israel and support for Israel at the UN and prohibiting Jew cult involvement in US politics, finance, media, academia, pharmaceuticals and commerce.

      Ovens…. don’t forget ovens. They burn well, and its free heating for the home.

      • RichardD

        They can’t help what they were born into. But judging a tree by its fruit, they’re a huge problem. The Talmud ideology of non Jews are inferior, and without equal, or any rights. Has been severely misused.

        I’m not a holocaust denier, but I’m beginning to question how much was made up by lying Jews to get what they wanted. From some of the exposure of revisionist allegations, I’d need additional information confirming that gas chambers and ovens were part of the slave labor camps. Before I accept information from lying Jews.

        • Hisham Saber

          according to their Talmud, lying to non-jews is a good thing and encouraged.

          they say a ‘prayer’ every year called the ‘ kol nidre’ , in which all murder, thieft, lying scheming, subverting ect on non-jews is nullified and all contracts and their very ‘word for it’ is also nullified.

          they are liars, and the fathers of the lie. John 8 : 44 , or Ezekiel 36 31:33.

          never, ever take a jews word for the truth.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            all religions tell the same. asnd you, little nazi has the same phlosophy. you are liar and big loser.

          • RichardD

            Are you a Jew pedophile cult member?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            no jew, no pedohile, you idiot fascist :)))

          • RichardD

            You’ve got some serious communication and mental issues.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            whoa!

          • RichardD

            Telling the truth about Jew crime and evil doesn’t make me a “little nazi idiot fascist liar and big loser”.

            You obviously have a problem with the truth about the Jew pedophile cult, Jew crime and Jew evil being exposed on these threads to the point of making false allegations against and slandering someone telling the truth. If you’re not a Jew pedophile cult member, why is that? Or are you a lying Jew?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            sorry idiot, but i hane nothing common with jews crimes.

            focus yourself on articles.

          • RichardD

            Why don’t you like the truth about Jew cult crimes and evil being exposed?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            this article is about libya and us government.
            you can duscuss your theme under article about israel.

          • RichardD

            The turmoil in the middle east is about Israel. What do you think about the Jew pedophile baby rapers, do you support their crime and evil?

          • RichardD

            What’s wrong Solomon, don’t you want all of your cult buddies to see you deny the Jew cult, or don’t you want to admit that you’re a cult supporter?

            “Infants Contract Herpes From Oral Suction During Jewish Circumcision”

            Youtube

            “Cult

            A relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or as imposing excessive control over members.
            ‘a network of Satan-worshipping cults’”

            The Talmud is a twisted perversion of the bible. Which is why Jews hid it from non Jews for thousands of years. And translations weren’t available until recently, many of which have been sanitized in a cover up and damage control effort. Because what they were and are brain washing the cult members with is so objectionable. Judaism isn’t a moral religion like Christianity, it’s an evil cult that should be outlawed.

          • Hisham Saber

            yup, the Talmud, like the Old Testament, were written by satanically inspired Rabbi’s of the ‘Levite’ school. They practiced pedophilia, ritual murder, phallus worshipping, homosexual orgies and every other deviancy known to man.

            the early ones perished, converted to Christianity or Islam, and the rest went into secrecy. The latest manifestation of this nefarious Talmud comes from the decedents of Khazaria, Later into Russian and Eastern European Jews.

            And that’s where we are today. With these people having seized positions of high power and influence in the west. This is very dangerous indeed, for these people will not cease and desist form their pursuit of war, suffering and destruction for us all.

            NESTA WEBSTER, in Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, page 370 “The Jewish conception of the Jews as the Chosen People who must eventually rule the world forms indeed the basis of Rabbinical Judaism . . .The Jewish religion now takes its stand on the Talmud rather than on the Bible.”

            JESUS CHRIST, speaking to the Jews in the Gospel of St. John, 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is not truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it. – then answered the Jews — ” (which makes it clear that Christ was addressing the Jews.)

            ST. JOHN, Gospel of St. John 7:1 “After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry because the Jews sought to kill him.”

            MOHAMMED, in the Koran “Whoever is a friend of a Jew, belong to them, becomes one of them, God cannot tolerate this mean people. The Jews have wandered from divine religion. You must not relent in your work which must show up Jewish deceit.”

            cheers my friend. keep up the good fight.

            My Spiritual outlook on life could probably best be described as golden rule humanism. I wouldn’t describe Judaism as that, which is one of the reasons that I have a problem with it,

            If there’s any truth to the contemporary reports of elements of the Jewish elite and their collaborators being practicing satanists. And I think that there is truth to it. They have probably been this way all along since the beginning. And are fronting for some dark and evil ET/ED forces, just like people of good will, which is most of humanity, embrace love and light.

            From what I can see, Christ’s teachings are based in natural law from the creator. And were an attempt to correct errors of the old testament and Judaism. And the Jews spent 500 years after his death opposing Christ’s teachings in the Talmud, until they stopped updating it. Which is why there’s a strong anti Christian strain in Judaism to the present.

            The core of Judaism is opposed to natural law, the golden rule and humanism. It’s all about Jews first and everyone else is inferior. Any time that I’ve gotten involved with Jews trying to address their crimes and evil it’s always ended with lies, insults and threats. Being anti social is part of their culture. My view is that they’re spiritually deformed from birth by their cult brain washing and indoctrination.

            As I’ve gotten older, I’m 59, I’ve studied the ET spiritual belief structures in the new age material and contact cases like the Meier case. I’ve been to the Semjase Silver Star center and talked in depth with Mr. Meier’s English translator and one of his long time aides.

            From what I know about religion and ET matters. I think that there’s been ET/ED (extra dimensional) involvement in the development of our religions and belief structures, not just Christianity, but the eastern and other religions as well. Dogs can hear things that we can’t and eagles can see things that we can’t. They live in a dimensional structure that isn’t entirely identical to ours because of their genetics. I’m sure that ETs/EDs because of their genetics and technology have different dimensional realities to deal with than we do. And that as we develop ours will probably change as well.

            Yesterday and last night I ran a recon op looking for a place in the mountain wilderness that would be suitable for ET/ED contact work. I’ve been doing this work as a hobby for 8 years and have had a life long interest in ufos. I found a mountain top dry lake bed basin structure that would be suitable as a natural spaceport for bringing a 50 to 100 foot ship with leveling off road landing gear in for pick up and drop off. Or a larger ship that could hover unseen. And for having ET liaisons beam down for meetings in an environment that would be secure and remote so as not to cause a disturbance where other people would see it and call the police or investigate it themselves.

            I’m planning to set up a campsite as a mobile temporary research station for contact work and spend overnights doing sky watches and meditation/telepathy work. In a clean, rested condition with nice accommodations in a secure natural environment. Where the ETs can be comfortable that they’re not in immediate danger. And working relationships can develop to the point where I can have foreign ministers and heads of state participate to assist with our safe and peaceful transition into becoming an ET race ourselves on a war, poverty and pollution free planet.

            I view Israel and Talmud Judaism a primary impediment to achieving these goals. Which is why as part of my peace process work I’m trying to help get humanities Jew problem corrected.
