On Libya: From ‘Rebels’ With Love (a slap-in-the-face for the Brits) & NATO’s New Mission-Creep Phase (Target: civil infrastructures)


1. Libyan Drama: The Dangerous Rebels (true colours showing) 1.1. The Recent Events inside ‘Rebels’ Zones: Well, one needs not to get into much depth on the recent news that which has been coming out of Libya; reflecting anxieties and fears of the unstable and divided so-called ‘rebels’ (see: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/8670999/Libya-murder-of-rebel-commander-threatens-split.html), or the what is to … Continue reading

Good Day To You All. I have always been an enthusiast student of nature; be it that of humans or animals, and more recently, that since last year, whenever I had free time, or just lucky to be in the same presence as the object of my most recent fascination, the foxes, I have always … Continue reading

British Libyan Strategy Is a Mess & Hague Is a Liability (new strategy: a special inter-departmental Libyan Group under a senior Arabist Mandarin)


Yes, the policy seems to resolute well with what we have been recommending, more recently, in terms of the need towards a new western strategic posture and policy-direction and management on the Libyan Crisis (see the post below, On Libya: A New Western Strategy). However, the present announcement, misses the ‘essential ingredients’, the silence, the … Continue reading

On Libya: An Outline of A Winning Strategic Policy For The Libyan Opposition Against Gaddaffi


We have seen, and discussed in details, Gaddaffi’s regime, strategic advantages, moral superiority, local and regional support, and to the point of recommending the few controversial military options open to him on his drive towards the suppression of the local internal crisis, against the so-called ‘rebels’. Let me stop here, and tackle the ‘so-called rebel’ … Continue reading

On Libya: In Conversation With Sagacious Sun Tzu The Great


As I had previously informed the readers and friends here, that, this month of July is at my local think tank, I.R.S., a ‘Military Science Month’, and since I am the head of the Military Studies Group, the responsibilities of seminal presentations on the matter befell upon me. Thus, I chose to divide the task, … Continue reading

Recently, there seems to be a new drive for a revived ”psychological’ morale injection, via PR, Propaganda, Media Management etc, within the Anglo-French Aggressive Forces Quarters, to boost the images of the ‘rebels’-in-charge, and well-managed, one might say, to the point, one can not turn a newspaper page, or have a look at the screens … Continue reading

The concept Panopticism comes from another old philosopher, I do not seem able at the present to remember who it was, I reckon it was Bertrand Russell, but will have to come back to you with this, and it was, in time, built and made more famous by the great Michel Foucault, in his studies … Continue reading

Two of The Kind: Murdoch-Drama & The Lord Butler Report (The Big Worthless Dramas; satisfy the mob) Must Read!!!


Today’s Murdoch Crisis engulfing the British Isles, and her power-halls, is nothing, as I have already been saying throughout this drama, new or radical in condemnation, but just a big ‘establishment crisis management’ with no real threats to the existing order of things and power-status within the UK. No one in the end is going … Continue reading

Remember This Thesis: A New Age of Neo-Colonialism (with a full-RT Article & Video Evidence: A MUST READ!)


We have constantly analysed and presented, on this blog, many articles that which have argued, consistently, how the present so-called ”Revolutionary Interests and Uprisings” in the Middle-East and Africa, the reminiscence of the Cold-War Age ‘National Liberations & Uprisings”, has opened up the long desired western interest for a new age of neo-colonialism, especially, with … Continue reading
