In The News:

Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.

» Despite the fact that many Western governments are now recognizing the Libyan 'rebels' as the legitimate government the announcement yesterday of the fall of Tripoli Libya and an alleged liberation of the city was more than a little exaggerated. Saif, one of Muammar al-Gadaffi's sons allegedly captured appeared in the middle of Tripoli with a cheering crowd.

The CIA fronted rebels appear to have walked into a trap... an urban ambush. Door to door fighting is in progress right now but without close air support it's common knowledge that the defender has the advantage in urban warfare. Without the willingness to lose a large number of fighters, one of two things will happen now. Protracted urban warfare (so much for the UN mandate on civilian protection) with many casualties taken by the invading army, or the rebels will have to hole up, or withdraw. Expect NATO close air support because... Look below the next two pullquotes from Foreign Policy for an explanation of the West's desperation to the point of being absolutely outside ANY modern convention or treaty on warfare in urban environments.

From Foreign Policy's Middle East Channel:
Rebels faced a setback in the reappearance of Seif al-Islam el-Qaddafi, the son of Muammar al-Qaddafi, who was seen in the center of Tripoli taunting the rebels and boasting to foreign journalists that Qaddafi is still "in control" and safe. This has raised questions as to the credibility of rebel claims and confusion amid the opposition forces. [More]
More from Foreign Policy Morning Brief:
Confusion reigned in the Libyan capital of Tripoli after Muammar al-Qaddafi's son Saif al-Islam made a surprise visit to a hotel housing foreign journalists, and pro-Qaddafi military units remained in control of pockets of the city. The disorder was so great that the International Organization for Migration delayed a mission to rescue hundreds of foreigners stranded in Tripoli. Its ship, which left from the eastern port of Benghazi, plans to remain at sea until it receives some guarantee of safety to dock in Tripoli.

Leaders of the Transitional National Council (TNC) claimed that the rebels had made progress to secure Tripoli, but it appears clear that large areas of the city still remain out of their control. The appearance of Saif al-Islam, who TNC chairman Mustafa Abdul Jalil had confirmed was captured by the rebels, raised significant questions about the reliability of the rebels' pronouncements.

The rebels, however, continue to make important gains on the diplomatic front. Oman and Bahrain formally recognized the TNC as Libya's legitimate government on Aug. 23, following Egypt, which did the same on Aug. 22.

Obama administration urges Libyan rebels to quickly restore order: U.S. officials conferred with TNC representatives on plans to distribute humanitarian assistance throughout Tripoli and restore law and order in the capital. [More]
Just in case you happen to wonder why the West is so intent on taking out Muammar al-Gadaffi...

At the top... For the Keep It Simple Silly crowd.

Muammar al-Gaddafi put $97 billion of his country's money 'where his mouth is' to keep Africa from needing Western Imperial assistance on the condition that the African states receiving the aid rid themselves of corruption and nepotism.

Consider that Western "Assistance" looks something like this...
Contractors And Others Steal Half Of Food Aid To Somalia

"New York - At least half of the World Food Programme's food supplies to Somalia's needy people has been diverted by unscrupulous contractors, radical Islamist militants and even UN staff in the country, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

The Times said an unpublished report by the UN Security Council would recommend that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon launch an investigation into WFP's operations in Somalia considering the severity of the food aid diversion."

In case you need a catch-up on 'corruption' there's a whole other piece Auntie posted, including a discussion of
"Why DOES Somalia NEED "food aid" in the first place?" Here.


So it's sort of obvious that, in a very real way, the War on Libya is being fought because Libya was attempting to bring down an African network of corruption, and attempting to foil the continued maintenance by the West of an ongoing status quo... You can call it 'economic war', being pursued against most all the nations of Africa.

Here's how Libya's aid to Africa is being/has been spent:

» And for the next 'Humanitarian Intervention' - A UN human rights committee meeting has begun on the abuses by the Bashar Assad government of Syria.

» There has been a 6.5 magnitude earthquake outside of Trinidad Colorado... It was felt all the way to Santa Fe.

» The National Football League may cancel all pre-season 49er/Raider football games until further notice after a mayhem-filled event over the weekend. More in the commentary.

» The foxes take the henhouse back - Standard & Poors, under fire from EVERYONE in the wake of their downgrading has had their CEO resign. He will most likely be replaced by an executive from CitiGroup

» That's the way it is when you have lots of money - Today the New York DA is expected to ask for the dropping of rape charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn billionaire former head of the International Monetary Fund despite significant evidence that the rape did occur.

Elective readings on the commentary topic... The "Hells Angels of Football", the Oakland Raiders by Doctor Hunter S. Thompson... The Great Shark Hunt:

Sorry folks... ScribD pulled it.
You'll just have to go to your local library and read it (Hint: 'SuperBowl').

Hunter S Thompson - The Great Shark Hunt

This is Razer Raygun saying 'Happy Motoring America...' Enjoy it while you can.


(And PLEASE try to keep your government from killing all the dusky natives...)
