NATO’s 2011 intervention created the devastation and chaos in Libya that enabled the rise of Islamic State militants and the current crisis surrounding the killing of 21 Egyptian Christians.
Following a February 2011 rebellion in eastern Libya, and a crackdown by the government, the United Nations adopted Resolution 1973, authorizing a no-fly zone in the country. NATO later expanded its operations to include direct air support to rebels, resulting in the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s government in October 2011. Continue reading

In 2011, as the entire world watched the Arab Spring in amazement, the US and its allies, predominantly working under the banner of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), militarily overran the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.
The peaceful civilian protesters they claimed to be intervening to protect were not really what the US and its cohorts presented to the world. Many of these so-called “protesters” were armed, and when this became apparent they eventually began to portray themselves as “rebel forces.” These so-called “rebels” in Libya were not a military force that emerged spontaneously for the most part, but an insurgency movement cultivated and organised before any opposition activities were even reported in Libya.

Dopo l’ennesima guerra “boomerang” dell’Occidente, ora l’Isis è in Libia, a mille chilometri dall’Italia.
L’allarme è stato lanciato dall’inviato speciale delle Nazioni Unite, Bernardino Leon che, lo scorso 7 ottobre, ha affermato:
“Gli jihadisti dello Stati islamico sono già presenti in Libia e la loro minaccia è concreta”.
Il governo italiano è silente ma l’emergenza per l’Italia è in atto. Dal Paese nordafricano, che si affaccia sul Mediterraneo e dista poche ore di navigazione dalle nostre coste, proviene la quasi totalità dei flussi di migranti che sbarcano in Sicilia.
“Un’eventuale avanzata dei miliziani sunniti dello Stato islamico (Is o Isis) moltiplicherà i flussi di migranti in fuga dalle violenze”
– sostiene Paolo Sensini, autore di “Libia 2011” (ed. Jaca Book – 2011) e “Divide et impera. Strategie del caos per il XXI secolo nel Vicino e Medio Oriente” (ed. Mimesis – 2013) –.
Continueranno i traffici di esseri umani con i quali le milizie libiche si finanziano la guerra e il rischio di infiltrazioni terroristiche diventerebbe altissimo. Inoltre, gli interessi energetici e commerciali dell’Italia in Libia sarebbero irrimediabilmente compromessi”… Continue reading

The following article was published two years ago on March 9, 2011, at the outset of the US-NATO intervention in Libya. Libya’s oil reserves are twice those of the United States.
In retrospect. the 2011 US-NATO led war on Libya was a multi-trillion dollar trophy for the United States. It was also, as outlined in the article a means to establishing US hegemony in North Africa, a region historically dominated by France and to lesser extent by Italy and Spain.
The US-NATO intervention was also intent upon excluding China from the region and edging out China’s National Petroleum Corp (CNPC), which was a major player in Libya.
Libya is the gateway to the Sahel and Central Africa. More generally, what is at stake is the redrawing of the map of Africa at the expense of France’s historical spheres of influence, namely a process of neo-colonial redivision. Continue reading
