US special forces on standby for Africa

2012-10-15 22:20

Washington - Administration officials say the White House has put special operations strike forces on standby and moved drones into the skies above Africa, ready to hit militant targets from Libya to Mali, if US investigators can find the al-Qaeda-linked group responsible for the death of the US ambassador in Libya.

But the officials say the administration also is weighing whether the short-term payoff of being able to claim retribution against al-Qaeda is worth the risk that such strikes would be ineffective and rile governments in the region.

Details were provided by three current and one former administration official, as well as an analyst who was approached by the White House for help.

All four spoke only on condition of anonymity.

    OK so please start with the convoy that is driving Madenema back from Zimbabwe and the target our useless government

      bolton,they didnt target de klerk or botha,so why would they target the current regime? and dont forget that apartheid was listed as a rogue regime that had already been found guilty of committing crimes against humanity! how soon you forgot?

      Hope I am wrong but perhaps Obama will make a few strikes to ensure gets re-elected. Bill Clinton's striking of Al-Queda in Sudan suspiciously coincided with the revelation of the Monica Lewinski affair... I am not a friend of Al-Queda and welcome continuous drone strikes and Special Forces Ops to root them out. I just do not trust the silliness of the American election season.

    Hopefully the US will bomb these terrorists to hell and gone like they did with Sadam and Osama. One thing I hate wtih a passion are these effen terrorist groups that kills innocent people cause of religious beleieves. Granted no country can always do everything 100 percent to catch these terrorists but this is a global problem not just a problem for the US. So all countries must help to stop these terror groups.

      jans.opresser - 2012-10-15 22:54

      you seem to forget that had the idiot zuma not voted for the bombing of libya at the UN,this never happens? america and that ambassador got what they deserved for knowingly siding with al-qaeda from the very begining.

      ari.potah - 2012-10-16 07:30

      The worst terrorists in the world are the amerikans themselves. Al QaedDUH is an amerikan creation and run as an asset by the CIA. If you are REALLY interested in what is actually happening read this report: http://www.globalresearch.ca/libyas-green-resistance-did-it-and-nato-powers-are-covering-up

  • jans.opresser - 2012-10-15 22:50

    what a quagmire Obama has gotten himself into.he thought that he and his buddies from europe and england could side with al-qaeda to illegally overthrow gadaffi,and all would be good.just as I told you all last year,this was the ONLY outcome that ANYONE could have expected. now here is his problem.he cant bomb libya BEFORE the elections.that would mean that he sided with the wrong terrorist when he backed the al-qaeda rebels.so he has to wait until after the elections to do anything hoping and praying that he gets re-elected! if he gets re-elected(doubt it)he will then launch a full scale invasion of libya and we will get a repeat of Iraq all over again.the new libyan govt was put in place by AL-QAEDA because gadafi had let C.I.A. and MI6 members torture his own citizens in their own country,so NO WAY will they allow the same thing to happen to them.and remember,they have not helped the americans at all since the killing of the former US ambassador stevens. and if they do bomb libya,libya's new allies from the muslim brotherhood in Egypt will defend them.and all of those foreign jihadist who are trying to overthrow assad will then head to libya to fight against america!

      Juan - 2012-10-16 03:32

      The idea is not to carpet bomb Libya but to take out the key players, the leadership of Al Queda in the region.

      fidel.mgoqi - 2012-10-16 07:56

      Juan, have the drones worked in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen. Is the number of civilians killed justified? A quick google search will tell you all you need to know about "accidental death" and "collateral bombing".

  • dean.dart - 2012-10-15 23:20

    America must not be actively involved. The US must state they they have a problem, meet with the AU and then find a way that is... More \african\ as Africans can handle their own security problems. This is evident in what is referred to the, \New Somalia\. America MUST play a supporting role. Africa must take a stand on this matter, otherwise the US will use this matter to get more involved (leverage) in Africa; maybe even under false pretenses, because there is no need what so ever that the US should come to Africa.

      jans.opresser - 2012-10-15 23:47

      dean,sorry to inform you,that you are wrong on all fronts. the killing of the US ambassador was an act of war,so was attacking the US consulate!so america(this time)does have a legal ground to stand on. and sorry to say,that had the idiots from the AU (ZUMA)(JOHNATHAN) (BONGO) listened to the AU this never happens. the AU told all three of those idiots to veto UNR1973 at the UN and all three of them defied the AU and voted to have libya bombed,and this is the end result. the AU is a useless org.that is comprised of a bunch of morons and cowards that doesnt know its tail from its head. they couldnt even get a consensus on the libyan affair before the vote at the UN,so what good are they? the AU,zuma especially,was not smart enough to know that america,england and france all lied to them and him (zuma) simply to implement regime change in libya until it was too late. and the only african nation that can defend themselves from NATO is EGYPT! and they just may help the al-qaeda backed govt in libya when america invades them!

      dean.dart - 2012-10-16 00:04

      Firstly, the murder was in essence and the attack, was a hate crime. The attack on the consulate, was not an isolated incident. Similar incidents took place in Yemen as well as Jordan. Based on these facts, this can not be seen as a \declaration of war\. And even if it was, who declared war? America is blowing this out of proption. America has no claim in Africa. The only reason why I referred to the AU was because it was a recognised body, that could represent Africa as a whole. And yes, Egypt is a counter-balance to the Nato forces in Southern Europe, it has always been involved in Middle Eastern politics.

      Dean, US' involvement in Africa is calculated and is to counter China's growing economic influence in the region. Remember that Clinton recently visited over 7 countries in the continent and there's the US known ambition of establishing a military base (AFRICOM) next door in Botswana. There's a reason also that Europe and the US supported and financed the candidacy of Ping for chairmanship of the AU as opposed to Dlamini-Zuma or SA, because of our economic and political alliance with the Eastern countries, combined with SA being too independent as we don't rely on foreign aid for our fiscas.

    @jan you are an idiot! Why the f@$k would they want to bomb Libya and how was gadaffi's removal illegal??

      jans.opresser - 2012-10-16 00:41

      brett,they are going to bomb libya,and they are going to invade libya also! killing the US ambassador was an act of war. attacking the US consulate was also.now before you lie and pretend to be smarter than you are let me remind you that there are TWO ARLEIGH BURKE CLASS DESTROYERS off the coast of libya as I type. they are not on a sight seeing tour! gadaffi's removeal was illegal because america knew all along from the beginning that the rebels in libya were then and are today al-qaeda terrorist! even the departed former ambasador stevens knew all along from the very beginning that the rebels were al-qaeda. it was STEVENS himself who sent the diplomatic cable to DC back in February of 2011 that read "al-qaeda is about to attempt another overthrow of the gadaffi govt,please advise on what to do if successful" the cables gave detailed names of the al-qaeda members who led the revolt against gadafi.they included ibrahim Bin Qumu,the former number two man to osama bin laden,Abdel hakim Al Hisadi and Abdel Hakim El Berage. they are all former prisoners at gunatanamo bay and Bagrham prison i AFGHANISTAN! in march of that year,WIKILEAKS released that cable to the public and gadaffi then kicked stevens out of the country.stevens continued to lie about an arab spring" that he knew never existed. that is why it was illegal!chickens have come home to roost!

    In the year of 2000 there were seven countries without a Rothschild owned Central Bank: Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea, Iran The only countries left in 2003 without a Central Bank owned by the Rothschild Family were: Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea, Iran The only countries left in 2011 without a Central Bank owned by the Rothschild Family are: Cuba, North Korea, Iran If Al quida take control of Libia, then they loose that bank. Who is Rothchild, name started off as Bauer, worked for the Openheimer bank in Germany over 250 years ago. His first Central Bank, Bank of England after Napolian lost the war, they own the fed, they own everything in the world, same guys that killed half the English empire and 70% of boer women and children to get hold of De Beers (Rothchilds) and Anglo American (Openheimers, same guys that killed the Irish resistance, same guys creating farm murders so they can get rid of any african resistance, same guys that created the American civil war after Jackson kicked the central banks out, 5 years later the civil war started, same reason 1st world war was engineered to get rid of the Russion Tsar and start communism, same guys that bought 80% of the land called Israel, same guys that owns BBC, NBC, Echonomist and you name it. Open your eyes guys and see it for what it is! They can't let Libya slip back into Arab hands, pretty simple, guess whos owning and controlling the world!!

      hennie.boshoff - 2012-10-16 06:57

      Stert with Hermeticism, Bhudism, Gnosticism, then Illuminate with the big G on ALL their paintings, for Gnosticism, thenFree masonary, Rothchild banks, then religions like Johovas witness, Roman Catholic, then the Aerican Civil war, what Jackson did before that, what Kenedy did (wanted to print Americas own money) before he was shot dead, then modern version such as Scientology and it's replacements Spaceology and "O" religion for Opera and the book The Secret whic we see every 70 years. All connected, wake up guys, American presence in Sudan has nothing to do with Alchaeda, these guys created the Napoleon war after which Rothchild bought out the English central bank after gambling on who will win the war, the french revolution, the american civil war, the Anglo American war, the boer wars, the world wars, vietnam, China/Tibet, Cambodia, disaapearings of people in South America, The Mafia, drugs cartels around the world, All investment banks, Rio Tinto, De Beers, Anglo American, Union Oil (Rockerfellas), BP, Exxon mobile, North sea oil, Caltex and all of the media. They caused the bank crash in 1929, 2008 and you name it. Read on the Bildenberg Group, group of 300 and more. Guess who was Karl Marx aligned to an why the Russion Tsar was destroyed, so the Japanese empire and the chinese empire.

      hennie.boshoff - 2012-10-16 07:31

      Owe I also forgot, Al Queada was aslo their creation, is simple, works in Africa, works in east, worked with the french revolution, worked with American civil wars, worked with world wars. You create a group that couse diversion and conflict, then you send in super powers and the UN to fix it, chage the coutry to be controlled and owned by the Central banks, owned by the bankers, also you loan money to both sides, Rothchild also loaned money to the boers, as they did to both the North and the SOuth in america, as they do on boeth sides in Congo, Rwanda, Vietnam through Marx from North and America from South, as they did in Korea. Doesn't matter who wins, the money needs to be payed back, so who owns the place actually after the wrrsa, who oned De Beeers, Anglo American after the Boer wars, who oned the American central bank, the cotton retailers and oil companies in the states, also the railway lines in the states, also the first steel works in the states. Guys, Africa is played like a puppet show, so is the middle east for the last oil resources, is all about the money and nothing about the countries. Libya discovered 7 new oil fields in 2009, and what happened after that? The deal of the century in the Congo with the chinese took place in 2007, go check when the major genocide took place. In the these guys eye's we are called cows and puppets and guess who gets the milk. So yeah they can invade and bomb any country, because if America fails, they have China also!

      They probably ask some countries but the ones like mali, somalia who don't really have a government they do as they please, its a good thing the next hitler isn't an american leader, with their military might they could do the world some serious damage

      fidel.mgoqi - 2012-10-16 08:18

      But Somalia and Mali aren't America's problem! There's a lot of countries who post WW11 have been on the receiving end of US state terror bombing and am pretty sure they would differ with you re your analogy of the US and Hitler. They've done some serious damage already, ask the people of both Iraq and Libya on how their country's infrastructure has stood up to US/Nato bombing.

    I've said this in the past that these stupid Libyans that killed Gaddafi had no idea what they were getting their country into.

      "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson." - U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a letter written Nov. 21, 1933 to Colonel E. Mandell House In 1864, President Abraham Lincoln discovered the Tsar of Russia, Alexander II (1855 – 1881), was having problems with the Rothschild’s for refusing their continual attempts to set up a central bank in Russia. President Lincoln asked the Tsar for help in the Civil War and the Tsar sent part of his fleet to anchor off New York and the other part off California. The Tsar made it clear to the British, French and Spanish that if they attacked either side, Russia would take the side of President Lincoln. Lincoln subsequently won the Civil War. In 1865, in an a statement to Congress, President Abraham Lincoln stated, “I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me, and the financial institution in the rear. Of the two, the one in my rear is my greatest foe.” Later that year President Lincoln is assassinated. US President John F. Kennedy planned to terminate the privately owned Federal Reserve System. In 1963, he signed Executive Orders EO-11 and EO-110, returning to the government the responsibility to print money, taking that privilege away from the Rothschild. Shortly thereafter, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

      We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans." - Bill Clinton, USA Today on 3/11/93, page 2a “It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” - Henry Ford Alan Greenspan, served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1987 to 2006, stated at the annual Dinner and Francis Boyer Lecture of The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research on December 5, 1996: “Augmenting concerns about the Federal Reserve is the perception that we are a secretive organization, operating behind closed doors, not always in the interests of the nation as a whole. This is regrettable, and we continuously strive to alter this misperception.” "Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government." - Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference in Evians, France, 1991

      "The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." - Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets “Bankers own the earth; take it away from them but leave them with the power to create credit; and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again... If you want to be slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers control money and control credit.” - Sir Josiah Stamp, Director, Bank of England, 1940.

It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." - David Rockefeller, Bilderberg Meeting, June 1991 Baden, Germany "The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it's profits or so dependent on it's favors, that there will be no opposition from that class." - Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild “Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws." - Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild
