2011-03-24 21:34

Ankara - Command of Western military operations in Libya will be transferred from the United States to Nato within a day or two, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Thursday.

"Compromise has been reached in principle in a very short time," Davutoglu told reporters. "The operation will be handed over to Nato completely."

He said this would happen as soon as possible, within one or two days. Agreement had been reached in a teleconference with his counterparts from the United States, France and Britain.

    All these developments are clear in Bible prophecy. The Eu/Nato will be stepping up, and yes the UK/US will be shrinking down. Just one significant problem - The Eu/Nato are leaderless! Do I see Obamas hand waving?? .. to do the 'peace' he got the Nobel for!! There are GLOBAL New World Order objectives on the roll here - Watch this space!

    What does Nato have to do with Libya? Libya is not one of its members, and Libya is not attacking one of its members. The primary aspect of the Nato alliance is that an attack on one of its member states is an attack on all. It is simply a treaty organisation, a union, if you wiil, to protect each of its members. They are reaching beyond their boundries now. There are far too many over-reaching power-hungry international organizations around which, in itself, may lead to an international war.

    To all you critics of the actions taken by the US and Nato countries, tell that to the rebels! Or do you believe they enjoyed being bombed and slaughtered on orders of their kind and benevolent leader of 41 years, who was re elected time and time again in free and fair elections and generously spread the wealth of his countries to causes that aggrandised himself and did little for the Libyan populace that rates as distinctly poor in global terms. Who is the "bully" in this play? Idiots.

      Your 'critics' are not idiots! - but observers! Who do you think set up your 'bully-boy' crank and kept him and many other Marxists proped up in the 1st place?? The US/Nato are just puppets to the Internationalists. The Internationalists couldnt care 2 hoots for the poor either - just use them for their own ends. Pawns in the Game - Wake up!

    To all the critics of the actions of the US and NATO countries, tell that to the people of Libya. They must be really enjoying been bombed and slaughtered by their benevolent leader who they have elected time and time again over the last 41 years in free and fair elections so that he could waste the wealth of the country on projects to aggrandise himself and leave them poor and with substandard services. The only "bully" in this play is Gadaffi himself, who needs outside mercenaries to kill "his" (can that be?) people to keep him in power.

    Kgwadi: Interesting - we were suspecting this. Just one thing - drop the Zionist thing. Although Jews were in the early ranks of the Internationalists/Globalists its not an issue now. Unconfirmed: Gaddafi is a half Jew himself?

      you entirely right, the international community should step back and let yet another useless African dictator wipe out his own people ... good bloody riddance in fact

      Kgwadi the article was posted on earthlinggb.wordpress.com a well known conspiracy theorist web site. You just have to look at what they publish on this site and what they don’t to see what they are trying to achieve. It is exactly the same as believing what you see on Fox News is true, both have their own agendas, except they are coming from the opposite ends of the political spectrum. I am sorry to burst your bubble but just because it is publish on the web does not make it true, this applies to anything.

      let me ask you one other question. The popular belief in certain parts is the US only went to war in Iraq for the oil. Please do some research and see which countries won the majority of the tenders to develop Iraq's oil industry. You find out it is not the US but rather China followed by Russian and European companies, makes you think doesn't it.
