Eight months of media blackout and my wishes for Libya

Nov 07, 2011 12:00 AM

Let's take a look of the world AS IT IS, and as we have witnessed over the last 8 months.

1. THE WORDS of MILLIONS of Libyans were seen ON VIDEO by the entire world, at YouTube. There were about 5 to 7 rallies in Tripoli, Sirte, and another city or two.
At each of those rallies, at least 1 mm Libyans came into the streets, demonstrating that THEY were majority; that 90 % of the Libyan people were FOR Gaddafi and the Jamahiriya.

2. Dr Moussa Ibrahim conducted press conferences, about once or twice a week, and those interviews appeared before the entire world. He spoke to the entire press corp as well as to millions of people.
And I have rarely seen ANYONE as eloquent with words; with body language; with sophistication than he. He appealed passionately to the world. He asked for peace. He asked for negotiations.

3. The Green Blogs (the blogs that support Muammar Gaddafi and the Libyan Jamahiriya) rose in number to perhaps about 20, 10 of which were core blogs.
They were filled to the BRIM with TONS of words, for all to say.

4. There were other "information warriors", such as Dr Webster Tarpley, Dr Franklin Lamb, T-West of Afrisynergy, Susan Lindauer, Steve Lendman, Lisa Karpova, Adam King, Timothy Bankcroft, other Mathaba writers, Leonor of Libya, Morris Herman, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Lizzie Phelan, myself, former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, the writers at BAR (Black Agenda Report), Minister Louis Farakhan.
There were the supporters of Muammar and the Jamahiriya who were writing their Congressmen and other legislators in the US, as I did, as well as writing to newspapers all over the country, as I did.

What happened? Nothing. All words were IGNORED. If we lived in a normal world, this war would not have lasted two weeks. The outrage would have been so high that NATO would have pulled out -- the countries backing NATO would have pulled NATO back.
I have never, in my 61 years on this earth, witnessed this high a level of immorality. I'm talking about the evil powers that no longer seem to even CARE about public opinion.

Those millions of Libyans who protested were seen. We have all seen those crowds. And we all thought to ourselves, "Wow! This war will end soon!!" I know I did. We saw Dr Moussa Ibrahim demonstrate that the educated Libyan is INFINITELY more knowledge; more sophisticated; more cultured; more erudite than anybody from the West. And guess what? NOBODY CARED.
We have all watched this for 8 months, especially those of us who were making appeals to politicians; to our neighbours; writing articles; writing newspapers, etc., etc., every single day for 8 months.

So, what works? Guns? I know one thing: If I was in Libya, I would WANT a gun, if for no other reason but my own personal survival.
Personally, I am into a deep, deep, deep spiritual and metaphysical state of mind, as regards my PERSONAL involvement. My prayers have intensified greatly.

But, at the same time, I still hope that the North African people will wake up and understand that one North African's problems are another North African's problems. I still hold out hope that at least three of the North African governments [just to start], as well as the Libyan Jamahiriya, will unite TOTALLY, or so close to totally that they might as well be ONE.
I hope that that happens, and that they will then MILITARILY be able to boot out the oppressors.

I also hope, yes, that billions of invisible "angels", or forces will converge on Libya and fight alongside the true Libyan people. In short, I wish for all and every kind of help for Libya, be it a big power such as Russia; be it nations of North Africa; be it beings from outer space; be it a good trafficking of arms through a strong network that can get arms to the Green Resistance.
I wish for every and all kinds of assistance to Libya.

Words? Well, we must keep using words, yes.
But words alone? Will words alone work? Sorry, but I doubt that very seriously.
