As you probably know by now, our mission is to fill in as many blanks as possible left by Western news sources, and today is particularly critical as the Western msm have failed spectacularly to report on important events in the Libyan conflict, notably the recent Russian victories over the Turkish-backed Islamists and GNA troops, and the more-recent entry of Egypt into the conflict. This deliberate lack of coverage is perhaps the most serious dereliction of duty ever perpetrated by the Western msm because the turning point of the Libyan war signals a tectonic plate shift from West to East in terms of global influence.
By way of background, the UN- and US-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) represents not so much the will of the Libyan people but rather the will of Western states in the US-led UN, which lent a false legitimacy to the GNA. For example, the GCA, ie, General National Congress, which exists at the pleasure of the GNA, is top-heavy with Islamists because all old Ghaddafi supporters are banned from the government. Since Ghaddafi was a moderate leader who had banned Islamists as terrorists, this left Libya in the hands of essentially radical elements who do not represent the will of Libyans as a whole. This is why Haftar and his Russian and Egyptian allies (as well as France, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and others) oppose the GNA. Yet it is not surprising that the West would sympathize with the terrorist-supporting GNA because it was the Obama regime that toppled Ghaddafi at the request of the radicals in 2011. (A thoroughly researched analysis from Nena exposes the whole sordid Western and Israeli involvement in Middle Eastern terrorism, and we see its continuation in Libya today).
I first found a report at the Russian-language site avia.pro that Egypt is flying missions in Libya in support of Haftar and the Russians. I then checked to see how many US news outlets were reporting on this. I found exactly NONE. That is unbelievable and inexcusable, but nonetheless understandable. After all, the purpose of US news outlets is to present mostly, or even exclusively, news that makes the US look powerful and “great again.” Any objective reporting from the Libyan front will expose the US Establishment – on both sides of the aisle – for the deceitful toothless and spineless blob that it is in reality. After all, the US has nose-dived economically following the rampant quantitative easing sprees (printing of unbacked trillions of dollars), unprecedented jobless numbers and the drowning stock market resulting from the COVID pandemic.
The following is an excerpt from the English-language site bulgarianmilitary.com:
“It should be clarified that if Egypt does intervene in hostilities on the territory of neighbouring Libya, then neither Turkey nor the Turkish jihadists will have a chance to hold out for at least a week...”
Well, since Egypt is now intervening, we need no longer speculate. Erdoğan’s gamble sure looks like it is failing. And since first Turkish blood has been drawn, his political chances are dimming. The Turks are already fed up with Turkey’s military involvement in Syria and Libya. If you wish, you can call this Putin’s “meddling” in Turkish elections.
With regard to the Western coverage of the Libyan conflict, as noted above, there is ZERO Western coverage these days, and the conflict has turned in favour of Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar’s opposition forces fighting the terror-supporting Turkish-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), which repeatedly reminds the world that it is recognized by the UN and the US, although this reminder ignores the fact that the GNA is suspiciously tolerant of the black slavery that reared its head after the Obama regime/NATO invaded Libya in 2011. The UN paved the way for this senseless invasion by declaring a no-fly zone that precluded any protection for Ghaddafi, who was declared a mass murderer by the jihadists that the US/UN sided with, without, of course, asking for proof of such mass killings. If Russia had had then the air power and prestige it enjoys today just 9 years later, Ghaddafi would have survived and Libya would be the prosperous terror-free country it was then.
And yet, as we showed here, the US position has not changed an iota since then and still leans toward terror in Libya, and as we showed here, the Democrats who plunged Libya into chaos are upset with Russia for intervening, using the threadbare excuse that they are Russians (they always were) and are “America’s adversary,” again without a stitch of evidence that this is indeed so. And this is odd because in supporting the GNA these Democrats are in fact tacitly supporting black slavery – even as they shriek that black lives matter when these lives are American – African blacks don’t vote in the US.
The good news is that, whilst Erdoğan was having a gay old time gaining ground for Turkish troops and jihadists imported from Syria and for the GNA, at the expense of Haftar, a powerful series of Russian air attacks brought Erdoğan back to earth and prompted him to beg for talks with Haftar – which he had refused to do while he was winning. Our report and commentary are here.
Folks, what we are witnessing now throughout the Middle East is nothing short of a new Russian revolution, this time in geopolitics. At this point, given the Russian military clout, it seems as if Russia has no interest in who gets elected in the US November elections. (Perhaps that’s why the sneaky Democrat manipulators are shrieking about Chinese meddling now). Whilst many Americans believe it was Trump who kept the US out of war with Iran, Venezuela, North Korea and others, it was in fact a fear of Russian power that stayed the hand of the Pentagon, for example, when Russian Tupolevs landed in Venezuela or when Russia held joint drills with China and Iran in the Gulf. If a Democrat is elected president in November, he can be expected to push for a Libyan outcome favourable to the Washington warmongering cabal. But it won’t matter. Russia, together with its powerful ally Egypt, clearly has the upper hand. And as we see from the reports posted below, Egypt, with its crack air force, is now heavily involved. According to the latest reports, Egyptian F-16s are already flying missions against the Turkish-backed GNA troops and their terrorist allies (the Syrian Turkish-backed ISIS and Al-Qaeda militants that got whacked in the Syrian conflict. They never learn). And let me remind you that Egypt has ordered 20 new Su-35s from Russia in case the going gets rough next year. (The Su-35 outperforms the overpriced F-35 in all metrics).
If Erdoğan loses the wars, he will almost certainly lose the next election and make a lot of Turks very happy.
Perhaps some Western readers will be wondering: If the Turks are fed up with Erdoğan's wars, wouldn't the Russians also be sick of Putin's wars?
Good question, but here's the difference:
1--Russia wins its wars, fighting mostly from the air and staying a safe distance from the guns on the ground.
2--And because it wins, Russian weapons are extremely popular and selling like hot cakes, even despite the US sanctions, which serve to make them even more popular thanks to the hard-te-get factor. This helps the Russian economy.
3--Unlike Erdoğan's wars, Putin's wars make sense. The former are fought in defence of Islamists, but the Turks have been secularized for over a century thanks to the efforts of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who served as president of Turkey from 1923-1938 and turned his country into a Western-style democracy. Erdoğan looks anachronistic to many of them, especially to many in the big cities. They don't understand why their president wants to create Islamic republics throughout the Middle East, and most Arabs don't want this. By contrast, Putin's people have never been exposed to a pro-Islamist leader and even Russian Muslims don't want to support Islamism. The Russians generally understand that radicalism abroad can percolate into their country. They also know that the US and the US-led Western Establishment are anti-Russian and that the Western foreign policy generally supports Islamism, even terrorism. So they are pretty much behind Putin and want Russia to win the hearts and minds of the Middle East. Polls among young Arabs show that Russia is the non-Arab country that these people trust the most, while a majority see the US as an enemy. By defeating Islamism in the Middle East, Russia is also defeating the corrupted US influence.
