Lunacy .. and lunatics.
Lesseee… we went to Libya to save Benghazi… right? I do recall Obby slobbering on about ”saving” Benghazi from a massacre …ooops! which just happened, I guess, in Misrata, but never no mind!
And.. in further reports from the front, we are bombing Tripoli, a city of a million people. Yes, wonder how that is going…. but! they are not “our own people!”… You did catch that, didn’t you?
Anyhoo!, Ellen Brown has a piece up in the Asia Times (via Information Clearing House)… with this on the oft mentioned Benghazi:
April 13, 2011 “Asia Times” – -Several writers have noted the odd fact that the Libyan rebels took time out from their rebellion in March to create their own central bank – this before they even had a government.
Robert Wenzel wrote in the Economic Policy Journal:
I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising. This suggests we have a bit more than a rag tag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences.
Alex Newman wrote in the New American:
In a statement released last week, the rebels reported on the results of a meeting held on March 19. Among other things, the supposed rag-tag revolutionaries announced the “[d]esignation of the Central Bank of Benghazi as a monetary authority competent in monetary policies in Libya and appointment of a Governor to the Central Bank of Libya, with a temporary headquarters in Benghazi.”
Well that clears things up! We went to save the CBB! Central Bank of Benghazi, which no doubt has eyes on the massive amount of gold boullion that allows Qaddafi to be free of many restrictions:
And that brings us back to the puzzle of the Libyan central bank.
In an article posted on the Market Oracle, Eric Encina observed:
One seldom mentioned fact by western politicians and media pundits: the Central Bank of Libya is 100% State Owned … Currently, the Libyan government creates its own money, the Libyan Dinar, through the facilities of its own central bank. Few can argue that Libya is a sovereign nation with its own great resources, able to sustain its own economic destiny. One major problem for globalist banking cartels is that in order to do business with Libya, they must go through the Libyan Central Bank and its national currency, a place where they have absolutely zero dominion or power-broking ability. Hence, taking down the Central Bank of Libya (CBL) may not appear in the speeches of Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy but this is certainly at the top of the globalist agenda for absorbing Libya into its hive of compliant nations.
Libya not only has oil. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), its central bank has nearly 144 tonnes of gold in its vaults. With that sort of asset base, who needs the BIS, the IMF and their rules?
So, in addition to oil, which iirc is light sweet crude, Libya has gold. AND they have water, a massive underground aquifer.
We can’t let the man Reagan called “mad dog” have all of that, can we?
