Battle of Tripoli
There is very bad news for the rebels in Tripoli. There are intense clashes happening in Tripoli every single day. Rebels are either killed or being kidnapped every day by the armed citizens who are furious at the mass murder, pillage and destruction caused by the lawless rebels. The situation for the rebels is becoming more difficult, as the citizens of Tripoli who have put up with an unbearable life since the invasion, are resisting. Although most all of Tripoli is in the hands of the rebels, LDF sniper-marksmen are popping off rebels left and right. Tripoli hospitals are filling up with European mercenaries who are being shot by fighters of the resistance. It's guerilla warfare now. Al-Qaeda commander Abdelhakim Belhadj, the creator and the emir of the Islamic terrorist organization, "The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group," now holds the post of head of the Military Council of Tripoli, and does not hide his discontent with the leadership of the TNC (Transitional National Council). Belhadj spent years in prison in Libya after being captured in Thailand and handed over to the Jamahiriya by the British and American intelligence. He is still listed as a known terrorist, fully assisted by the US-NATO alliance.
Immediately after his visit to Tripoli by President Sarkozy and Prime Minister Cameron, the rebels became greatly inspired. So, in celebration of the visit of their masters, they set out in 900 pickup trucks and 100 tanks, and rushed to assault the cities of Bani-Walid and Sirte, which had previously been bombed for several weeks by NATO, only to be once again crushed by the Libyan Defense Forces, the Jamahiri green volunteers, and the armed citizens of those cities. Despite the support of the Special Forces of Qatar and France, the rebels fled to about 50-60 kilometers outside of the cities of Sirte and Bani-Walid.
Battle for Sirte
Gaddafi wanted Sirte to become the capital of a united Africa and it is the site of the headquarters of the African Investment Bank, which together with the African Monetary Fund (HQ in Yaounde, Cameroon) and African Central Bank (HQ in Abuja, Nigeria) which were to launch this September with a $42 billion fund to set Africa free from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank. The citizens of Sirte fiercely resisted the rebel attackers, who were forced to retreat in panic. The rebels met particularly fierce resistance about 50 km east of Sirte (population - 100 thousand people, located 360 km east of Tripoli), in the Khamsin. They claim they did not have enough firepower to respond to the forces of the Libyan resistance. Commander Mustafa Ben Dardef, from the team that walked 5 kilometers from the occupied areas of Sultan, located east of Sirte (370 km from Tripoli), said that his men would cease to conduct combat operations for one week. "We will stop fighting for a week. We are faced with the fact that we do not have enough ammunition," he said. "The main goal for now is to maintain progress and to establish a strong line of defense in Sultana, 30 kilometers east of Sirte," he said. The rebel command structure virtually doesn't exist, so maybe none of them even knew whose responsibility it was for re-supplying (logistics). Also, the rebels are actually fighting each other, and may be hesitant to supply ammunition to a rival rebel faction that might turn their weapons against them. This after the rebels had given repeated "final deadlines" for the city of Sirte to surrender of face massacres.
Battle for Bani Walid
Bani Walid still remains under the control of the Libyan Jamahiriya. This although the city has been under constant bombing for a month and constant missile attacks, as well as having its water supply cut off, food sources bombed by NATO, and being ringed by rebels who prevent anyone going into or out of the city thus enforcing a siege. NATO is thus deliberately starving an entire city into submission. The rebels prepared for an attack on Bani Walid, and on September 9 the NATO-rebel TNC leadership declared that the rebels had entered Bani Walid. As it turned out later, their attack was repulsed and the town was again shelled by the Air Forces of NATO. 17 foreign mercenaries of NATO, mostly French, with 2 Brits and 1 Asian were captured and are still held prisoners by the Libyan Defense Force. Meanwhile, NATO has decided to extend its war against Libya for another three more months to provide cover for the rebels from the air. Many military bases in the region of Sirte and Bani Walid were destroyed by NATO airstrikes.
No one is hiding the fact that the war in Libya is being fought between the Libyan Armed Forces and NATO. The role of the rebels is to pose for the cameras, chant slogans, and recite monologues about "freedom". TNC emissaries arrived at the location of the retreating rebel troops, trying to convince them not to disperse to their homes. The rebels lost hundreds of soldiers and the defense of Bani Walid was so strong that the rebels refused their commanders' orders to return to the fight.
It is said that one of the reasons that the rebel assaults on Bani Walid and Sirte failed is because of bad interaction between rebel forces, some of whom rushed to the assault based on their own decision to do so, not through any consultation with commanders. Commanders of the rebels in all key areas have accused each other of being unwilling to act in a coordinated manner. Another reason for the failure is because of mutual hatred of each other, within the military units, based on tribe and ethnicity.
Battle for Sabha
The rebels, who entered the city without a fight, were lured into an ambush that will go down in history as a legendary achievement. Those who entered the city were quickly rounded up and the others fled. There were 45 rebels killed, and hundreds taken as prisoners. Their flight took place amidst big confusion. The world media fail to report on this. Sabha remains under full control of the Libyan Jamahiriya as does over 85% of the country. Sabha is the largest town in the Libyan desert, with a population of 100 thousand people. Military bases placed at Sabha make it a strategically important city.
The first attempt to create a TNC government has failed. Members of the board rejected more than 50% of the nominees proposed by Jibril. The Islamists, as stated before, are gradually gaining strength and influence, and plan to attempt to build a "new Libya". The Libyan Defense Forces re-captured Brega. That's the oil port where they ship out oil. It's what NATO wanted to capture, and hold, more than anything. They have never been able to hold Brega, and it is now in the hands of Libyan Defense Forces. The Libyan Defense Forces re-captured Ras Lanouf, an important oil refinery. Gaddafi now has at least 10,000 Tuaregs at his disposal, some of them have crossed into Libya from Niger to help him fight. The Tuareg's are known by military experts, to be the world's top desert fighters. The Tuaregs made an announcement that was also a warning to the rebels. They said something like, "Only those people can cross our deserts who we like." And they don't like the rebels. The rebels slaughtered a group of Tuaregs in Libya and are carrying out ethnic cleansing (genocide) against Blacks in the limited areas they now control in Libya. Other Saharan tribes and sub-tribes are rallying behind Gaddafi. There is mass chaos in Benghazi, the HQ of the rebels. Residents are flying the green flag, in defiance. Al-Qaeda wants Mustafa Abdul Jalil, head of the rebels, dead, and they actually announced that. Mustafa Abdul Jalil, the head rat, was forced to admit, that Gaddafi and the Jamahiriya HAS ALL OF LIBYA'S GOLD. The rebels themselves are fighting against each other, even on the battlefield. Since NATO and the rebels have utterly failed, it is certain that the northern countries are now contemplating the full NATO occupation of Libya.
LATEST UPDATE Tuesday, 27.09.2011
In Benghazi, 1500 new Al-Qaeda soldiers have arrived from Afghanistan after heavy losses during the past week. Abu Yahya "Al-Libby (the Libyan)", who was one of those close to Bin Laden himself, has been appointed the commander of these Al-Qaeda soldiers. Libby is a notorious terrorist. These are very serious fighters, not "revolutionaries" in jeans. News reports indicated that Belhadj Hakim, (the commander of Al-Qaeda forces in Tripoli) had been killed. To avoid bloodshed in the city of Ghadamas, the Jamahiriya army ceased fire and sent an ultimatum. The rebels sent a message to others in their headquarters in Tripoli: "Save us! We are surrounded!" And the received the answer: "Save yourselves!". Zawaiya again raised the green flags. This means that soon the entire western road to the Tunisian border will be "green" again. Muammar Gaddafi, with a Kalashnikov in his hands, personally met with the soldiers and said that he would soon begin an offensive on the cities that are still in the hands of "traitors in the service of NATO," as he called the rebels.
