    Libya: Secret war
    Publication time: 8 April 2011, 19:39

    Corriere della Sera reports that while NATO is actively conducting military operations in Libya, evidence from the battle field indicate that there is a “secret war” being carried out in Libya.

    “The Algerian newspaper “Al-Khaber” published a report saying that a French commando unit got lost in the desert region of Al-Hamada Al-Hamra in the south-west part of the country. According to the newspaper, they went there to prevent the flow of weapons, mercenaries and terrorists into Libya. For reasons that are unclear, Paris lost contact with the commandos and asked Algeria to provide air-space and two air force bases in order to search for the special forces soldiers,” wrote the Italian newspaper.

    “The aforementioned French unit is one of the many units sent by the coalition to assist the rebels. British SAS soldiers, CIA agents and, probably, special forces from Arab countries are active in this theater of war.”

    “London put forward an idea that the alliance should attract former special forces soldiers to aid the rebels. Costs of the operations should be covered by the Arab countries, like Qatar and UAE, for example. The use of “contractors” will bypass political and diplomatic obstacles of sending ground troops to Libya,” wrote the author of the article.

    It is to be recalled that in mid-February, protests broke out in Libya demanding the departure of Muammar Qaddafi, who has ruled the country for more than 40 years, which later took the form of an armed conflict between government forces and rebels. The united opposition asserts that the sole legitimate authority present in the country is the Transitional National Council in Benghazi.

    On 17 March, the UN Security Council adapted a resolution calling for the introduction of a no-fly zone over Libya that allows possible foreign military intervention in the North African country. On 19 March, coalition forces began their operations. Great Britain, France, USA, Canada, Belgium, Italy, Denmark and Norway took part in it.

    The leadership of the military campaign was transferred to NATO command. However, the rebels, who as of late are under tremendous pressure from Qaddafi forces in strategically important regions of the country, have morally damaged coalition forces under the command of NATO by being sluggish and inactive.

    The military action in Libya sets a dangerous precedent of attacking countries where the leadership does not favor the pro-U.S. or pro-European Union countries. What will prevent the United States from stage-managing some protests, magnifying them in the corporate media as mass actions, and then bombing or attacking Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, or North Korea? During the Bush administration, Washington leveled baseless allegations to justify an illegal invasion of Iraq.
