Pack the Pipe seems the perfect bizarre ride away from the horrors that I am about to unload upon anyone unfortunate enough to read my squeals of factual carnage…
This is aimed more directly at the Americans, English, frogs than anyone else, but regardless, it should make for interesting reading and consumption as smooth as a plate of shark’s teeth over penne and bear shit.
Well…no point beating around the bush, may as well get straight to the femurs…and so…
The world witnessed this week, in graphic detail, the torture and execution of Colonel Gaddafi. The most recent international pariah was leaving his hometown stronghold of Sirte, in a convoy, which was bombed from the heavens above, by a US drone. That didn’t finish The Boss, who managed to hide in a tunnel, but was soon found, already bloodied up, by those NATO supported rebels, who some call revolutionaries…The lynch mob proceeded to stab, sodomize with a knife, then execute the former mad king of Libya, before displaying his body in an icy butcher’s store, in order to allow a lengthy line of The New Order the chance to have the photo taken next to the body. If they didn’t manage to get their fill, there was always the corpse of one of Gaddafi’s sons, presented similarly, in another butchery department nearby.
This wonderful ‘arab spring’ eh??? When all the good guys rise up against the bad guys, and with a little help from our own rulers, take power by force, and scream with wild joy.
What occurred in Libya was no revolution, the oppressed rising up against tyrants and winning their liberty. It was a NATO sponsored insurrection, designed to take out the head of a ruling party which was causing the major foreign powers financial concerns. When NATO talk of a ‘no fly zone’, we now know that this equates to ‘aerial bombardment, of hospitals, bridges, waterlines, schools and of course; escaping convoys’. Make no mistake, this was not in the slightest a Good v Bad battle. This was not a revolution demanded by, forced by, carried out by, the Libyans. Without the NATO bombs, these rebels would have been slaughtered, and I dare to say, and rightly so. For from what I can gather, from known facts, Gaddafi was not quite the despotic savage he has understandably been made out to be by the western media institutions.
Rather than solely my own ultra subjective opinion to back that last statement up, lets focus on some real hard facts…facts which I highly doubt will ever be spread through the major western media institutions.
In 2009, Libya sat at the top of the table for Africa on the Human Development Index. According to the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization, Libya “has made strides in public health and, since 1980, child mortality rates have dropped from 70 per thousand live births to 19 in 2009. Life expectancy has risen from 61 to 74 years of age during the same span of years.”
The WHO (world health organization) has described Libya’s public health care prior to Operation Odyssey Dawn in the following terms: “Health care is available to all citizens free of charge by the public sector. The country boasts the highest literacy and educational enrolment rates in North Africa. The Government is substantially increasing the development budget for health services…” Similarly, UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics demonstrates a high literacy rate of 89% (99% for the youth), a primary school enrolment rate of 97%, while according to the World Bank, “In a relative short period of time, Libya achieved universal access for primary education, with 98% gross enrolment for secondary, and 46% for tertiary education. In the past decade, girls’ enrolment increased by 12% in all levels of education.”
After NATO began their bombing campaign, this rally was caught on camera…

An estimated 1.5 million people, of a population of 6 million…do you really believe that all those people were encouraged with a gun to their heads, to show their support in such huge numbers???
It’s interesting to note how the BBC reported on Gaddafi’s Great Man Made River Project back in March 2006, a time when he was in favour with the West. Quite rightly, the BBC used phrases such as, “it is impossible not to be impressed with the scale of the project,” and “It is hard to fault the Libyans on their commitment. They estimate that when the Great Man-Made River is completed, they will have spent almost $20bn. So far, that money has bought 5,000km of pipeline that can transport 6.5 million cubic metres of water a day from over 1,000 desert wells. As a result, Libya is now a world leader in hydrological engineering, and it wants to export its expertise to other African and Middle-Eastern countries facing the same problems with their water.” It is the world’s largest irrigation project.
Or rather, it was. In July of 2011, NATO bombed the pipeline, adding to the expanding list of war crimes committed by the organization whose mission in Libya was based on the “responsibility to protect” civilians. Some estimate that in the region of 30,000 people have been killed since NATO began attacking Libya in March, and there is clear evidence that the destruction of the water supply is far from the only contravention of the laws of war committed by NATO in Libya. None of which should come as a surprise: as with all of NATO’s previous “interventions”, schools, hospitals, electric power stations, basic infrastructure and built up civilian districts have taken heavy losses and often been reduced to rubble, ready for the IMF to enter the fray with reconstruction packages – this is where the real looting begins.

It does not take much more digging into the easily available archives to find that Gaddafi was responsible for:
Hugely aiding the ANC in their battle against apartheid in South Africa.
Pumping $300m into a project to send into space the first African owned satellite, which had the definite benefits of halting in its tracks an annual $500m lease fee, plus interest on the debt, for use of the European satellites for all satellite based communications.
Forcing the issue of the African Monetary Fund, giving the African continent the chance to rule its own monetary affairs, taking away the power from the IMF to basically hold Africa to ransom, as heavily as it pleased.
As seen above: greatly increasing the physical well being of the majority of Libyans, in terms of health and education and life expectancy.

For anyone who has made it this far, surely something seems amiss?
It is not in any way my intention to paint The Colonel as a white knight, but to me, when even a few of the facts behind his rule become apparent, like with Saddam, I see most clearly, a Western Grudge carefully packaged as ‘support for a revolution of the oppressed’…which just also happens, to likely lead to the horrific destruction of a society and of course, the lining of the pockets of the Western powers who made this happen…its a fucking disgrace.
I often read the Guardian, but they have proven themselves absolutely and constantly and intentionally deceitful. Running pieces from Libyans who write passionately about ‘every single Libyan harmed by gaddafi in the last 40 years’…well, why have they neglected to apply objectivity, through also mentioning what i have outlined above???
There is no doubt in my mind, that like Saddam, if you crossed Gaddafi you were dead, and likely so was your family…but if you wanted to do nothing more adventurous, than play your part in society, enjoy solid healthcare, get educated, cause no trouble, then you were fine and dandy. Compare this with our own rulers…
Anyone in the US, UK, Australia and other countries I cannot vouch for presently, PAID THEIR TAXES, and so are responsible, directly or indirectly (however you view it), for an invasion and destruction of three countries in the last decade. Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya…but wait a second…weren’t those same despots our friends???
Does it strike you as rather odd, that the UK and France, two of the major governments responsible for bombing the fuck out of Gaddafi’s forces, actually armed Gaddafi over the last few years…??? It makes more sense when you realize that the West armed the Taliban and Saddam, and likely also, any other country we are soon to invade.
Before I cut this chord of disharmony, I will mention my own predictions regarding Who Will We Invade Next…
The debts of the West are staggering and impossible to cure without crunching other countries and peoples in the name of ‘spreading democracy’. Baghdad was a city you and I could have visited pre-invasion, yet now, nobody other than a suicidal maniac or well trained mercenary, would even ponder heading there. These wars are about money. They are nothing to do with liberation…only a fool contest such a statement. I try hard to envy the Dumb, who are plentiful and growing in number, but I cannot un-learn, un-know, and so I am stuck, with a soiled with rage and despair soul and increasingly vicious spirit, wanton for Justice, wanton mainly for my taxes to be used in a righteous manner. Is this too much to ask????
The OCCUPY movement is mildly interesting, but ultimately pointless, for nothing other than direct action can make the change that is desperately needed.
I read the reports, i spoke with eye-witnesses, and the end conclusion I came to, in regards to the OCCUPY movement here, was that the vast bulk of spastic wannabe beatnik scum involved were nothing more than financially comfortable cunts, pretending to be eager for change. But when your only line is ‘we are the people!’. I ask in return, ‘and what????? what do you want??? what is your point??? when you seem to be campaigning against corporate greed, camping opposite McDonalds, where you visit to grab your cheap burgers…do you not see how that makes your ONLY point mute???…I guess not..you ARE the people, yes I hear you, but what does that mean????’…
If a group has form for invading foreign lands, destroying their infrastructures and societies, raping their land of resources, do you really think that camping in the city and roaring in unison ‘we are the people’ is going to cause any constructive change???
Sorry…I got distracted by a rancid tangent of gloom and doom…back to the story…recently, a former 4 star US general said that the US government has a plan of invading seven countries in five years…i cannot dispute the first three countries on his list, as they have actually been invaded…Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya…Nor can i begin to show argument against his next suggestions, of Syria then Iran…for the western media is daily gung ho in their attempts to like with saddam, like with the Taliban, like with gaddafi, demand of their people to believe that these people are truly evil…Syria seems the most likely next target. Which is workable, militarily so. Iran is a different matter altogether, as an invasion will surely lead to a grounded war, which the result of is far from certain…
The other countries likely to be invaded, are apparently Lebanon, Somalia and Sudan.

I am not placing myself into some niche of righteousness, nor abusing you for failing to do the digging I have done, in order to find at least, slightly more of the facts than our own societies present to us. My aim is to do what I can, short of heading to the Gaza Strip and offering my services as a sniper. Which amounts to…making others aware of the reality of our own governments.
What bothers me most is not the lack of awareness, but the lack of love between us. We are literally playing into the hands of those who govern us. In the least, regardless of whether you are an OCCUPY protester, or preparing yourself to head to a training camp on the outskirts of Mogadishu, or a housewife concerned only and understandably with taking care of your own…PLEASE, in the least, just try to show love to not just your family and friends, but to all humans on the planet…unless such people are cunts, in which case, avoid them, make them well aware that your pour scorn on their modus operandis.
My own desires are for love, passion, mixing constantly with wicked creatures, and lust. This politics routine is something i feel a need, not desire, to engage with, and embrace, in the hope that I can spread FACTS which are otherwise not presented.
Make no mistake, I am as selfish as any man. I want nothing more than to be beautifully entangled with a wicked woman, who loves both me and my hellhound, to save gold nuggets, then head to the south of Italy, renovate a dilapidated farmhouse, grow allsorts of fruit and vegetables and vodka and weed and mescaline, run naked wild and free, and be near enough to the ocean to dive in regularly during the sunnier months of the year…
The only women I know who could even potentially be my Queen, are presently with other men, and due to my constant demand for Honour, I wont push my eagerness onto them, for they are lovely enough moments in my life to be happy and grateful for the interaction which exists in my day to day life….so…i am left with…my demand to WRITE, and am afforded a near total focus upon my more volatile facets.
I want to grow snow peas, I want to make my own dark and highly potent rum, I want to be rolling around in bed with a nubile minx as raindrops create a soothing symphony on the roof and windows and earth outside…but failing that, in this period, i want to make my existence useful, and so…be advised that the recent ‘support of democracy’ in Libya, is not at all as it seems. we have supported, likely for the majority unwittingly, the overthrow of a Leader who did seemingly more Right than Wrong, and in his place, we have bombed, killed, massacred, slaughtered into the throne of power, a group of mutually hateful tribes, who when they find the former leader, on the run, smile as we bomb him, shoot him, stab him, sodomize him with a large knife, execute him, then tell the world that they are set to enforce strict sharia law, in the ‘new libya’. So…
watching that, which was no surprise, but nonetheless horrible…horrible…fucking disgraceful…tears running down my cheek, rage rising from the gut of my stomach…fuck Sharia Law. THAT is a reason to liberate a people, especially the women…
