I was recently asked to do a new interview, this one for William Ramsay Investigates‘ You-Tube channel and the Ed Opperman Report radio network.

This is the You Tube video upload on William Ramsay’s main channel. The audio/radio version should be airing on Awake radio at 22.00 tomorrow (Saturday 4th February) and then otherwise available on all channels of the Ed Opperman Report. (more…)

It is difficult to look at the situation in Aleppo and not see it in a broader context. Not only of Syria, but of Libya, the past several years, and of the entire region. And of international affairs in general.

We probably shouldn’t; we should probably view different situations entirely in their own light. But I can’t help but look at Aleppo – both the fall of Aleppo to rebel militias and foreign-backed mercenaries and now the liberation or reclamation of Aleppo by Syrian government forces – and see it as a point on a timeline that goes all the way back to Benghazi, Tripoli, Sirte and elsewhere.

If anyone’s getting bored of me talking about the Libya intervention in 2011, I apologise – and I probably won’t do it again after this.

But I just need to clear something up once and for all; because people keep arguing with me about this. (more…)

David-Cameron-Sad-347x276

Following in the wake of the Chilcot Report into the Iraq War, British MPs have issued a substantial condemnation of David Cameron and Britain’s key role in the collapse of Libya.

It comes far too late; but it is nevertheless a significant moment and acknowledgement of the utter disaster that Britain played a substantial role in, even if France was the primary driver (of what I have called and will continue to call ‘the crime of the century’). (more…)

The nightmare that is post-Gaddafi Libya is showing no signs of improving any time soon.
Libyans who were promised democracy and progress by NATO and the international powers that rained bombs down across the country in 2011 have in fact been given nothing of the sort.

So here’s a question: who remember’s Gaddafi’s claim back in 2011 that the jihadists and NATO-backed ‘rebels’ fighting to overthrow his government were feeding young Libyan men hallucinogenic drugs to fuel their violent activity?
“Bribed, drugged, and supporting the Devil…” was one of the late Gaddafi’s more colourful descriptions of the armed gangs that were terrorising the Libyan people in early 2011.

The-Libya-Conspiracy_S-Awan(Book-Cover-2015)
In 2011, an international crime was committed that was so vast, so immoral, that the mainstream media even now  refuses to address it in truthful terms. It was a crime carried out by deception and subterfuge and amid a sea of misinformation, and it involved virtually every major Western government or media organisation.
This book, ‘The Libya Conspiracy’, is the definitive exposure and analysis, in its full scope and all its ugliness, of what truly was the crime of the centuryThis is a free download for all readers or subscribers to this blog.

Behold, the International Terrorist Organisation Known as the ‘SAS‘ and ‘Special Forces’.
That’s right; the brave, elite soldiers doing what they do best – dressing up as Arabs and waging war in the Middle East. Some people may be surprised by that statement; others won’t. But there is a very dubious history of the SAS/Special Forces involvement in that part of the world; a few examples of which will be highlighted in this post.

saif-gaddafi-1
“We delayed building a stronger army or buying new weapons,” Saif Gaddafi explained to RT in July 2011, in the midst of the collapse of his nation, “because we thought ‘we will not have to fight again’; because the Europeans and the Americans are our friends  now…”
He had been wrong about that of course, as had his father; and the sense of betrayal and shock on Saif’s part was palpable.
And now it is declared that it should be ‘death by firing squad’ for the man who was once thought to be Libya’s best hope for democracy and reform…
