அரசியல் பிரச்சாரத்தின் ஆதாரக் கோட்பாடு.

'' நீதி, மதம், அரசியல், சமுதாயம் சம்பந்தமான எல்லாவித சொல்லடுக்குகளுக்கும் பிரகடனங்களுக்கும் வாக்குறுதிகளுக்கும் பின்னே ஏதாவதொரு வர்க்கத்தின் நலன்கள் ஒழிந்து நிற்பதைக் கண்டுகொள்ள மக்கள் தெரிந்துகொள்ளாத வரையில் அரசியலில் அவர்கள் முட்டாள்தனமான ஏமாளிகளாகவும் தம்மைத் தாமே ஏமாற்றிக்கொள்வோராகவும் இருந்தனர், எப்போதும் இருப்பார்கள். பழைய ஏற்பாடு ஒவ்வொன்றும் எவ்வளவுதான் காட்டு மிராண்டித் தனமாகவும் அழுகிப் போனதாகவும் தோன்றிய போதிலும் ஏதாவது ஒரு ஆளும்வர்க்கத்தின் சக்தியைக் கொண்டு அது நிலைநிறுத்தப்பட்டு வருகிறது. சீர்திருத்தங்கள், அபிவிருத்திகள் ஆகியவற்றின் ஆதரவாளர்கள் இதை உணராத வரையில் பழைய அமைப்பு முறையின் பாதுகாவலர்கள் அவர்களை என்றென்றும் முட்டாளாக்கிக் கொண்டே இருப்பார்கள். இந்த வர்க்கங்களின் எதிர்ப்பைத் தகர்த்து ஒழிப்பதற்கு ஒரே ஒரு வழிதான் உண்டு. அது என்ன?

Musa Kusa in UK

Musa Kusa: Why UK gave sanctuary to this 'Gadafi's State' murderer?

Why did we give this murderer sanctuary?
* He's up to his neck in Lockerbie,

Defection: Former Libyan minister Musa Kusa arrived in Britain on Wednesday and taxpayers will have to pay for his protection

David Cameron is facing furious demands to put Gaddafi’s ‘envoy of death’ on trial after his defection to Britain.

The Prime Minister was last night accused of handing Musa Kusa – who masterminded the Lockerbie bombing and numerous other atrocities – a ‘get out of jail free card’.

It is estimated that housing and guarding the former Libyan foreign minister will cost taxpayers here more than £1million a year.

But Mr Cameron hailed the defection of Kusa as a ‘serious blow’ to the ‘crumbling and rotten Gaddafi regime’.

Last night sources said two more senior Gaddafi figures are in Tunis discussing deals with British and French intelligence officers, while at least eight others have defected to Tunisia.

In all, 12 former henchmen could be ready to defect to Britain. But as MI6 and the Foreign Office welcomed Kusa, critics said he should face justice like Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s deputy who fled to Britain in 1941.

Scottish prosecutors demanded to question the defector about the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988.

Detectives from Scotland Yard are also set to talk to him about the murder of WPC Yvonne Fletcher by a Libyan gunman in 1984.

Families of those killed in Lockerbie, Britain’s worst terror atrocity, branded the UK a ‘soft touch’ – especially after the release of the Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Al Megrahi in 2009.

There is also anger from MPs about Kusa’s support for the IRA during the height of its mainland bombing campaign. Libya supplied Semtex to the Provisionals in the 1970s and 80s.

Yesterday MPs said taxpayers should not have to foot the bill to protect Kusa from assassination.

உலக மறுபங்கீட்டு யுத்தத்தில் லிபியப் போர்க்களம் (1)

Monday, 28 March 2011

நாளை நடக்கவுள்ள லண்டன் மாநாடு மாபெரும் லிபிய நாட்டிற்கு பொம்மை அரசை உருவாக்கும் ஏற்பாடு.

ஏகாதிபத்திய ஆக்கிரமிப்பு நேற்ரோ படையே லிபியா மீது தொடுத்துள்ள அநீதி யுத்தத்தை உடனே நிறுத்து!

லிபியாவில் பொம்மலாட்டம்

லிபியா மீதான யுத்தத்தைக் கண்டிக்கும் சிங்கள சமூக தேசிய வெறியர்கள்


லிபியா மீதான தாக்குதல்களை கண்டித்து ஐ.நா. அலுவலகம் முன் ஆர்ப்பாட்டம்

பதிவு Mar 24, 2011 / பகுதி: சிறப்புச் செய்தி /

லிபியா மீதான மேற்குலக நாடுகளின் தாக்குதல்களை கண்டித்து இன்று கொழும்பு ஐ.நா. அலுவலகம் முன்பாக பாரிய ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் ஒன்று முன்னெடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

தேசிய சுதந்திர முன்னணியின் அமைச்சர் விமல் வீரவன்ச தலைமையில் இவ்வார்ப்பாட்டம் மேற்கொள்ளப்பட்டுள்ளது.

லிபியா மீதான தாக்குதல் குறித்து அமைச்சர் விமல் வீரவன்ச கருத்து தெரிவிக்கையில்,

லிபியாவில் நடைபெற்ற போராட்டங்கள் ஆனது உள்நாட்டு விடயமாகும். உள்நாட்டின் பிரச்சினைகளை தீர்த்துக்கொள்ள லிபியாவின் அரசாங்கத்திற்கும் அந்நாட்டு மக்களுக்குமே உரிமையுள்ளது. எந்த ஒரு நாட்டினதும் உள்நாட்டு விடயங்களில் தலையிட்டு இறையாண்மைக்கு களங்கத்தை ஏற்படுத்தும் உரிமை எந்தவொரு அரசிற்கோ அமைப்பிற்கோ கிடையாது.



ஆனால், ஐ.நா. பாதுகாப்பு சபையின் அனுமதியுடன் அமெரிக்க மற்றும் பிரிட்டன் உள்ளிட்ட மேற்குலக நாடுகள் பலவந்தமாக தலையிட்டு லிபியா மீது விமானம் மூலமான தாக்குதல்களை மேற்கொண்டு வருகின்றன. ஈராக்கிற்கு நடந்த நிலையே இன்று லிபியாவிற்கும் நடைபெறுகின்றது. லிபியாவின் எண்ணெய் வளத்தை குறிவைத்து மேற்குலக நாடுகள் தாக்குதல்களை நடத்தி வருகின்றன.


தாக்குதல்கள் நடத்துவதற்கு அனுமதியளித்து பான் கீ மூனும் போர்க்குற்றவாளியாகியுள்ளார். ஏனைய நாடுகளில் போர் குற்றங்களைத் தேடும் ஐ.நா. உள்ளிட்ட மேற்குலக நாடுகள் இன்று லிபியாவில் பாரிய போர் குற்றங்களை வெளிப்படையாக செய்து வருகின்றன. படைகளைப் பயன்படுத்தி ஏனைய நாடுகளை ஆக்கிரமிக்க இது ஒன்றும் 19ஆம் நூற்றாண்டு அல்ல.

எனவே,லிபியா மீதான தாக்குதலை இலங்கை வன்மையாக கண்டிக்கின்றது எனக் கூறினார்.

குறிப்பு:

லிபியாவுக்கு எதிரான யுத்தத்தை கண்டிப்பதாக இது தோற்றமளித்தாலும், ஈழதேசத்தில் சிறீலங்கா நடத்திய இனப்படுகொலையையும், யுத்தக்குற்றங்களையும் நியாயப்படுத்துவதே கெளரவ அமைச்சர் விமல் வீரவன்சவின் குறிக்கோள் என்பது தெளிவாகின்றது.’’எந்த ஒரு நாட்டினதும் உள்நாட்டு விடயங்களில் தலையிட்டு இறையாண்மைக்கு களங்கத்தை ஏற்படுத்தும் உரிமை எந்தவொரு அரசிற்கோ அமைப்பிற்கோ கிடையாது.’’ உண்மைதான் அமைச்சரே கூடவே ஒரு தேசத்தின் சுயநிர்ணயத்தில் தலையிடுவதற்கும் எந்தவொரு அரசிற்கோ அமைப்பிற்கோ உரிமை கிடையாது என்பதையும் சேர்த்துச் சொல்லவிடாமல் தங்களைத் தடுப்பது என்ன? முள்ளிவாய்க்காலில் 40 ஆயிரம் மக்களைப் படுகொலை செய்த இறையாண்மையுள்ள சிறீலங்கா அரசு, ஒரு களங்கமாக தங்கள் கண்களுக்கு தெரியாதது ஏன்? சிங்களப் பெருந்தேசிய வெறிதானே!!
’’லிபியாவின் எண்ணெய் வளத்தை குறிவைத்து மேற்குலக நாடுகள் தாக்குதல்களை நடத்தி வருகின்றன’’.உண்மைதான் இதில் தங்களுக்கு என்ன கவலை? தங்கள் நாட்டில் எந்தவளங்களை மேற்குலக நாடுகளுக்கு- கூடவே கிழக்குலக நாடுகளுக்கும் பங்கிட்டு! - தாரைவார்க்காமல் பாதுகாத்து வைத்திருக்கின்றீர்கள் ஒரு உதாரணம் காட்டமுடியுமா?
சொல்லில் சோசலிசமும்-ஏகாதிபத்திய எதிர்ப்பும்-, செயலில் சிங்களப் பெருந்தேசிய வெறிபிடித்தும் அலைகிற தங்களை ’சமூகதேசிய வெறியர்கள்’ என நாங்கள் அழைப்பதில் என்ன தவறு.சிங்கள மக்கள் தங்கள் தேசிய ஜனநாயக உரிமைகளை வென்றெடுக்க சமூக தேசிய வெறியர்கள் தலைமை அளிக்க முடியாது என நாங்கள் சொல்வது எவ்வளவு சரியானது.

Nato to command all Libya's military operations


Nato ambassadors meeting in Brussels have agreed that the alliance will take command of all international military operations relating to Libya.

That includes airstrikes on Colonel Gaddafi's forces.


The decision ends days of diplomatic wrangling and paves the way for the US to relinquish its temporary leadership of the operation.


Some Nato members - notably Turkey and Germany - have been reluctant for the alliance to take charge of the air strikes because of the risk of civilian casualties.

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has voted on a resolution authorising a no-fly zone over Libya and "all necessary measures" - code for military action - to protect civilians.

Ten of the council's 15 members voted in favour of the resolution, while Russia, China, Germany, India and Brazil abstained.

No votes were recorded against the resolution, which was co-sponsored by France, Britain, Lebanon and the United States.

In Benghazi, the main rebel stronghold, a large crowd watching the vote on an outdoor TV projection burst into celebration as green and red fireworks filled the air, as broadcast live on the Al-Jazeera satellite TV channel.

The resolution fulfills a long-standing demand from pro-democracy opposition forces in Libya asking for a no-fly zone to be established in order to prevent Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, from using fighter jets to bombard their positions, as they have been doing.

It comes just a few hours after Gaddafi warned residents of Benghazi, an opposition stronghold, that his forces would show "no mercy" in an impending assault on the city.

"The matter has been decided ... we are coming," he said in a radio address on Thursday.

The Libyan leader called pro-democracy fighters in Benghazi "armed gangsters" and urged residents to attack them, saying: "You all go out and cleanse the city of Benghazi.

"We will track them down, and search for them, alley by alley, road by road ... Massive waves of people will be crawling out to rescue the people of Benghazi, who are calling out for help, asking us to rescue them. We should come to their rescue."

'No mandate'

In an interview broadcast just before the security council voted on the resolution, Gaddafi dismissed its actions.

"The UN Security Council has no mandate. We don't acknowledge their resolutions," he told the Portuguese public Radiotelevisao Portuguesa.

He pledged to respond harshly to UN-sponsored attacks. "If the world is crazy, we will be crazy too," he said.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, Alain Juppe, the French foreign minister, said there was not much time left for the international community to act.

"France is very much involved in this action and has prepared the draft resolution. We have one goal… we want to stop the attacks by the Gaddafi regime against civilian populations.

"And it's a question of days or hours because the pressure against Benghazi, especially, is now very tough."

The Libyan defence ministry on Thursday, before the vote, warned that any military intervention in Libya would endanger air and sea traffic in the Mediterranean Sea.

In a statement released by the state-run Jana news agency, the ministry said that both civilian and military targets in the Mediterranean will be attacked.

British Tamil businesses continue networking effort

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 08 March 2011, 03:50 GMT]

The Tamil Chamber of Commerce in UK held another introductory dinner on March 2 in Northwest London, attended by scores of local Tamil entrepreneurs. The aim of the event in Ruislip, which was addressed by Deputy Mayor of London Richard Barnes, Mayor of Ealing Rajinder Mann and Mayor of Hounslow Colin Ellar, as well as local politicians and representatives from Britain’s main political parties, was to explain the TCC’s goals and potential for growing Tamil enterprise and to expand its membership, organisers said.

The TCC, a community organisation whose motto is ‘Unite and Excel’, was established in 2010 and serves as a forum for Tamil enterprises to network, develop business possibilities and collectively negotiate better rates from major service providers and suppliers.

The first in the TCC’s series of events was held mid January in East Ham.

Addressing the Ruislip event, London Deputy Mayor Barnes (Conservative) welcomed the TCC initiative, saying the small businesses are key to Britain’s economic recovery, echoing comments made four days later by British Prime Minister David Cameron.

He also promised to help the TCC establish relations with the London Business Network, a government initiative to help British businesses exploit opportunities arising from the investments being made for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Praising the Tamil community’s contribution to Britain, he said he had attended the mass protests in Westminster in 2009.

Speaking a the ruling Conservative Party’s spring conference on Sunday, Prime Minister Cameron argued "there's only one strategy for growth we can have now and that is rolling up our sleeves and doing everything possible to make it easier for businesses to grow, to invest, to take people on.”

"Back small firms. Boost enterprise. Be on the side of everyone in this country who wants to create jobs, and wealth and opportunity," he urged.

There are five thousand Tamil-owned businesses in Britain, with a combined turnover of over £1 billion and 150,000 employees, the TCC says.

Hounslow Mayor Ellar expressed his admiration for the “determination and business skills of the Tamil community” and said he hoped to attend TCC gatherings in future years and watch its member strength multiply several times over.

A presentation of the TCC’s project was given to attendees in Tamil and English.

Noting that Tamils are now active in all sectors of the British economy, including hotels, care homes, travel agents, estate agents, wedding services, wholesalers, and construction firms, along with more traditional sectors such as accountancy, medince and law, the TCC said it aimed to provide a unified voice for Tamil enterprise in the UK, and eventually internationally.

The TCC said it would provide networking opportunities, as well as training and support programmes for young entrepreneurs in areas such as web development, marketing, advertising and communication skills.

The TCC eventually also planned to provide a platform for sustainable investment in Tamil economic revival in Sri Lanka, such as by forging links with organisations like the Jaffna Chamber of Commerce.

Larry Fink’s $12 Trillion Shadow
Though few Americans know his name, Larry Fink may be the most powerful man in the post-bailout economy. His giant BlackRock money-management firm controls or monitors more than $12 trillion worldwide—including the balance sheets of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the toxic A.I.G. and Bear Stearns assets taken over by the U.S. government last year. How did Fink rebound from a humiliating failure to become the financial fulcrum of Washington and Wall Street? Through a series of interviews, the author probes his role in the crisis, his unique risk-assessment system, and the growing concern he inspires.

Second Explosion at Reactor as Technicians Try to Contain Damage
By HIROKO TABUCHI and MATTHEW L. WALD New York Times

Published: March 14, 2011

TOKYO — The risk of partial meltdown at a stricken nuclear power plant in Japan increased on Monday as cooling systems failed at a third reactor, possibly exposing its fuel rods, only hours after a second explosion at a separate reactor blew the roof off a containment building.

Hospital patients who might have been exposed to radiation were carried into a radiation treatment center in Nihonmatsu, Fukushima Prefecture, on Sunday.

The widening problems underscore the difficulties Japanese authorities are having in bringing several damaged reactors under control three days after a devastating earthquake and a tsunami hit Japan’s northeast coast and shut down the electricity that runs the crucial cooling systems for reactors.

Operators fear that if they cannot establish control, despite increasingly desperate measures to do so, the reactors could experience meltdowns, which would release catastrophic amounts of radiation.

It was unclear if radiation was released by Monday’s explosion, but a similar explosion at another reactor at the plant over the weekend did release radioactive material.

Live footage on public broadcaster NHK showed the skeletal remains of the reactor building and thick smoke rising from the building. Eleven people had been injured in the blast, one seriously, officials said.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said that the release of large amounts of radiation was unlikely. But traces of radiation could be released into the atmosphere, and about 500 people who remained within a 12-mile radius were ordered temporarily to take cover indoors, he said.

The country’s nuclear power watchdog said readings taken soon after the explosion showed no big change in radiation levels around the plant or any damage to the containment vessel, which protects the radioactive material in the reactor.

“I have received reports that the containment vessel is sound,” Mr. Edano said. “I understand that there is little possibility that radioactive materials are being released in large amounts.”

In screenings, higher-than-normal levels of radiation have been detected from at least 22 people evacuated from near the plant, the nuclear safety watchdog said, but it is not clear if the doses they received were dangerous.

Technicians had been scrambling most of Sunday to fix a mechanical failure that left the reactor far more vulnerable to explosions.

The two reactors where the explosions occurred are both presumed to have already suffered partial meltdowns — a dangerous situation that, if unchecked, could lead to a full meltdown.

Later Monday, Mr. Edano said cooling systems at a third reactor at Fukushia Daiichi had failed. The water level inside the reactor had fallen, exposing the fuel rods at its core despite emergency efforts to pump seawater into the reactor, he said.

“The pump ran out of fuel,” Mr. Edano said, “and the process of inserting water took longer than expected, so the fuel rods were exposed from the water for a while.”

Plant workers then renewed efforts to flood the reactor with seawater, and readings showed that some of the water had started to accumulate within the reactor, he said.

Exposure for too long a period of time can damage the fuel rods and raise the risk of overheating and possible meltdown.

Hidehiko Nishiyama, deputy director-general at Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, said workers were also battling rising pressure within the reactor. They have opened vents in the reactor’s containment vessel, which houses the fuel rods, a measure that could release small amounts of radiation, he said.

The Fukushima Daiichi plant and the Fukushima Daini power station, about 10 miles away, have been under a state of emergency.

On Monday morning, Tokyo Electric, which runs both plants, said it had restored the cooling systems at two of three reactors experiencing problems at Daini. That would leave a total of four reactors at the two plants with pumping difficulties.

“I’m not aware that we’ve ever had more than one reactor troubled at a time,” said Frank N. von Hippel, a physicist and professor at Princeton, explaining the difficulties faced by the Japanese.

“The whole country was focused on Three Mile Island,” he said, referring to the Pennsylvania nuclear plant accident in 1979. “Here you have Tokyo Electric Power and the Japanese regulators focusing on multiple plants at the same time.”“

In what was perhaps the clearest sign of the rising anxiety over the nuclear crisis, both the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Russian authorities issued statements on Sunday trying to allay fears, saying they did not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach their territory.

Late Sunday night, the International Atomic Energy Agency announced that Japan had added a third plant, Onagawa, to the list of those under a state of emergency because a low level of radioactive materials had been detected outside its walls. But on Monday morning, it quoted Japanese authorities as saying that the radioactivity levels at the Onagawa plant had returned to normal levels and that there appeared to be no leak there.

“The increased level may have been due to a release of radioactive material from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant,” the agency said. The Onagawa and Daiichi plants are 75 miles apart. The operator of the Onagawa plant, Tohoku Electric Power, said that levels of radiation there were twice the allowed level, but that they did not pose health risks.

Soon after that announcement, Kyodo News reported that a plant about 75 miles north of Tokyo was having at least some cooling system problems. But a plant spokesman later said a backup pump was working.

The government was testing people who lived near the Daiichi plant, with local officials saying that about 170 residents had probably been exposed. The government earlier said that three workers had radiation illness, but Tokyo Electric said Monday that only one worker was ill.

The problems at Fukushima Daiichi appeared to be the most serious involving a nuclear plant since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. A partial meltdown can occur when radioactive fuel rods, which normally are under in water, remain partially uncovered for too long. The longer the fuel is exposed, the closer the reactor comes to a full meltdown.

Technicians are essentially fighting for time while heat generation in the fuel gradually declines, trying to keep the rods covered despite a breakdown in the normal cooling system, which runs off the electrical grid. Since that was knocked out in the earthquake, and diesel generators later failed — possibly because of the tsunami — the operators have used a makeshift system for keeping cool water on the fuel rods.

Now, they pump in new water, let it boil and then vent it to the atmosphere, releasing some radioactive material. But they are having difficulty even with that, and have sometimes allowed the water levels to drop too low, exposing the fuel to steam and air, with resulting fuel damage.

On Sunday, Japanese nuclear officials said operators at the plant had suffered a setback trying to bring one of the reactors under control when a valve malfunction stopped the flow of water and left fuel rods partially uncovered. The delay raised pressure at the reactor.

At a late night news conference, officials at Tokyo Electric Power said that the valve had been fixed, but that water levels had not yet begun rising.

U.S. to Name a Liaison to Libyan Rebels

Libyan Pres Gaddafi Praises Obama: "Barakeh Obama is friend, our son, he is of Muslim descent, his policy should be supported"

Barack Obama said Moammar Gadhafi has lost his legitimacy to rule and urged the Libyan leader to leave power immediately.

“I have not taken any options off the table,” but “when it comes to U.S. military action, whether it’s a no-fly zone or other options, you’ve got to balance costs versus benefits, and I don’t take those decisions lightly,” Mr. Obama said.

U.S. to Name a Liaison to Libyan Rebels

By HELENE COOPER NYT
March 11, 2011

WASHINGTON — President Obama said Friday that he would appoint a special representative to Libya’s rebel leaders and that the Treasury Department had placed sanctions on nine more family members and friends of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi in an effort to force the Libyan leader to resign.

Mr. Obama said the representative, who White House officials said would probably be chosen by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in the next few days, would determine how the United States could help the Libyan opposition.

The move is significant because although the United States has not formally recognized the rebels as legitimate representatives of the Libyan people, the appointment of a special representative is bound to be interpreted as a move toward de facto recognition.

France was the first country to recognize the Libyan National Council, the rebels’ shadow government, as the representative of the Libyan people on Thursday, after a meeting between President Nicolas Sarkozy and two representatives of the movement, which has its headquarters in Benghazi, Libya.

At the news conference on Friday where Mr. Obama announced the move toward engagement with the rebels, he said the international community was “tightening the noose” on Colonel Qaddafi through sanctions and other actions.

He said he was considering a no-flight zone, but administration officials continued to indicate privately that the situation in Libya would have to get much worse before Mr. Obama would risk the lives of American pilots to take out Libya’s air-defense systems.

“I have not taken any options off the table,” Mr. Obama said. But “when it comes to U.S. military action, whether it’s a no-fly zone or other options, you’ve got to balance costs versus benefits, and I don’t take those decisions lightly.”

Separately, the Treasury Department announced additional sanctions on Colonel Qaddafi’s family and high-ranking members of his government, including Abu Zayd Umar Dorda, the director of Libya’s external security organization, and Abdullah al-Senussi, the chief of military intelligence. Mr. Senussi, the Treasury Department said in a statement, “organized mass killings in Benghazi” and is “allegedly responsible for the deaths of 1,200 Islamists in Abu Selim prison.”

The Treasury Department also froze the American assets of Defense Minister Abu Bakr Yunis Jabir and Matuq Muhammad Matuq, the secretary general of the People’s Committee for Public Works.
Colonel Qaddafi’s wife and more of his children were also added to the list. Two weeks ago, the United States froze the assets of Colonel Qaddafi and four of his sons, but did not single out other Libyan officials. So far, Treasury officials said, the United States has frozen $32 billion in Libyan government assets.

David Cohen, acting under secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said that the moves on Friday “should send a strong signal to those responsible for the violence inflicted by Qaddafi and his government that the United States will continue steps to increase pressure and to hold them accountable.”

France Becomes First Country to Recognize Libyan Rebels

France Becomes First Country to Recognize Libyan Rebels

By ALAN COWELL and STEVEN ERLANGER
March 10, 2011

PARIS — Moving ahead of its allies, France on Thursday became the first country to recognize Libya’s rebel leadership in the eastern city of Benghazi and said it would soon exchange ambassadors with the insurgents.

The move was a victory for the Libyan National Council in its quest for recognition and a setback for Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi who has been seeking whatever international support he can as NATO members in Brussels began a debate about the possible imposition of a no-flight zone over Libya.

The French announcement came as loyalist forces in Libya claimed new successes against the rebels west of the capital in the town of Zawiyah, while, to the east, loyalist forces renewed ferocious assaults on the key oil town of Ras Lanuf.

President Nicolas Sarkozy met in Paris on Thursday with Mahmoud Jibril and Ali Al-Esawi, representatives of the Libyan National Council that was set up after the uprising in Libya erupted in February. He was the first head of state to meet with insurgent leaders.

Soon afterward, a French announcement said France recognized the council as the sole legitimate representative of the Libyan people. News reports said that, in response, Libya would break diplomatic relations with France.

The move puts France ahead of other European powers that have been seeking ways of supporting the rebels in their goal of toppling Colonel Qaddafi. Normally, European Union countries say they recognize states, not governments, but the European Parliament has advocated recognition of the rebel leadership in Benghazi.

France has also set itself apart from some other nations, including the United States, by insisting that any military support for the rebels be authorized by the United Nations Security Council, but not carried out by NATO, since the alliance has an aggressive image in the Arab world. Washington favors using NATO. While he was out of government, Alain Juppé, the new French foreign minister, opposed France resuming full membership in NATO.

France’s aggressive diplomatic stance is seen as a way of showing commitment to the popular uprisings and democratic changes in the Middle East and North Africa, after Mr. Sarkozy admitted that Paris was slow to recognize the strength of the revolutionary movements in Tunisia, a former French protectorate, and Egypt.

The British and German governments both indicated on Thursday that their practice was to recognize only states, but British authorities called the rebels “valid interlocutors with whom we wish to work closely.”

In a highly embarrassing incident last weekend, Britain sent a small contingent of diplomats and special forces to try to make contact with the rebels in Benghazi, but they were arrested and later withdrew aboard a British warship sent to pick them up.

For its part, Germany on Thursday ordered the freezing of Libyan assets, which the finance ministry in Berlin said were worth “billions.” Rainer Brüderle, the German finance minister, said the decision would affect about 193 accounts held at 14 financial institutions in Germany.

In Brussels, NATO officials said on Thursday that the alliance has started 24-hour surveillance of Libyan airspace where Colonel Qaddafi has deployed warplanes against rebels trying to advance westward toward loyalist strongholds along the shores of the Gulf of Sirte.

But it was unclear what further steps NATO would end up taking, if any. The alliance’s secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, told reporters that NATO was considering a “range of options,” including humanitarian help, but that any move would be governed by three principles: that there was “demonstrable need,” a “clear legal basis” and “firm regional support.”

The Libyan National Council has been pressing for foreign aid amid divisions over the extent of external intervention in a revolt that rebel leaders want to preserve as a home-grown phenomenon. The insurgents have acknowledged being overwhelmed by the myriad tasks and challenges facing them.

“We’ve found ourselves in a vacuum,” Mustafa Gheriani, an acting spokesman for the provisional leadership, said Tuesday in Benghazi. “Instead of worrying about establishing a transitional government, all we worry about are the needs — security, what people require, where the uprising is going. Things are moving too fast.”

In the evolving diplomacy surrounding the conflict, Colonel Qaddafi has sent envoys across Europe and, according to some reports, Latin America and Africa, in many cases to argue against international intervention.

On Wednesday, emissaries were reported to have visited Egypt, Greece, Portugal, Malta and Brussels, where European Union foreign ministers were meeting Thursday to discuss Libya.

Greece confirmed that the colonel himself had spoken with Prime Minister George A. Papandreou and a government statement in South Africa said that he had spoken by telephone with President Jacob Zuma.

South Africa’s international relations minister, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, said on Thursday that Mr. Zuma told Colonel Qaddafi that South Africa “abhors the heinous human rights violations against his own people.”

“We took advantage through our president to tell him this has to stop with immediate effect,” the South African Press Association news agency reported.

Judy Dempsey contributed reporting from Berlin.

Biden to meet with Putin on second day of Moscow visit


Biden to meet with Putin on second day of Moscow visit

Published: 10 March, 2011, 08:35 Edited: 10 March, 2011, 10:12 Russia Today

US Vice President Joe Biden will continue his two-day visit to Moscow with a meeting with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Turmoil in Libya is again likely to dominate talks, overshadowing the issue of missile defense and Russia’s bid for the WTO.

­As a veto-holding member of the UN Security Council, Russia is strongly against imposing a no-fly zone over Libya, which would entail a ban on its national air force and civil aviation and the disabling of its anti-aircraft systems. The Kremlin has insisted that the international community not become involved in Libya’s domestic affairs.

“I don’t think [Biden] has a mandate to ask for Russia’s support for any sort of intervention into Libya, because there is no agreement within the US and of course within NATO whether it should intervene,” says political analyst Mikhail Troitsky.

But the US has been considering the option of imposing the no-fly zone, given the continued escalation of bloodshed in the region and pressure from the UK and France.

Talks with Putin will precede further meetings with Russian opposition parties and civil society activists, whose names have not yet been disclosed, raising some speculation about the US involvement in Russian domestic politics ahead of the 2012 presidential elections.

On Wednesday, Biden met with Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev and held a business roundtable to address US-Russia trade and economic ties.

PFLP Comrade Jamal: Recent events in Libya mean the fascist dictatorship will soon fall


Recent events in Libya mean the fascist dictatorship will soon fall
PFLP Comrade Jamal:

Comrade Hussein al-Jamal, member of the Central Committee of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said on February 24, 2011 that what is happening now in Libya demonstrates that the official Arab regimes, and specifically, the rule of the fascist dictatorship in Libya, have nothing to do with the masses of the Arab people while exploiting the capabilities and wealth of the masses.

Comrade al-Jamal spoke with the Voice of the People radio station in Gaza, saying that the fascist dictatorship in Libya is attempting to defend its authority and protect its private interests, using the most powerful weapons against the proud masses of the Libyan people in revolt. The masses of the Libyan people, he said, are engaged in an ongoing revolution, determined to achieve victory and complete its objectives in bringing down the regime.

Furthermore, he called for this expired fascist dictatorial regime to be brought before the Libyan people and international criminal courts to be tried for the heinous crimes committed against the heroic Libyan people.
Furthermore, he expressed his salute to the masses of our Arab people, and to the Libyan martyrs who were killed in brutal massacres committed by the dictator Muammar Gaddafi, his gang and his mercenaries, emphasizing that these systems and services and security battalions have been sponsored by the Mossad, Western intelligence services and the U.S. intelligence community. He said that these systems will not be stronger than the voice of the revolutionary Arab masses who are sweeping aside the weak thrones of all corrupt and dictatorial Arab regimes, particularly Gaddafi's dictatorship.

Comrade al-Jamal said that the spread of awareness among the Arab people which has led to the uprising and revolt against injustice in Tunisia, Egypt, now Libya, and throughout Arab countries reflects the historical development of the revolutionary process among the Arab people, saying that this process may be long or short and that the Arab people have accumulated revolutionary experience since before the last explosion in the mid-twentieth century. He noted that these revolutions had been delayed, in particular by the subordination of Arab officialdom to colonialism and imperialism, disengaging from the Palestinian national cause, and looting the wealth of the masses to their own benefit, leading to the absence of the Arab role in global political, cultural and scientific levels.

Furthermore, said Comrade Jamal, there is no Arab regime that creates any budget item that receives as high an allocated budget as the "security" services, including training and arms for the police and security services, overseen by the U.S. and Western intelligence servives. There is no Arab regime, said Comrade Jamal, allocating budgets for scientific research; these regimes have squandered Arab history and civilization and exploited the vast capacities of the Arab people in order to remain on their flimsy thrones based on the accumulation of stolen wealth in their hands, and the hands of their families and courtiers. Comrade Jamal pointed to Tunisia's ruling family and their vast wealth and corruption, and Egypt, where Mubarak and his family have become a gang of thieves and looters who took over the riches and fortunes of the Arab world.
In response to a question about the impact of these events on Palestine, Comrade al-Jamal stressed that these developments are positive, saying that imperialism in the U.S. and Europe has been sent reeling by the rapid development of revolutionary change in the Arab world, noting that Arab popular power will dramatically affect the relationship between Arab countries and the Zionist entity.

Comrade al-Jamal emphasized that these revolutionary transformations will lead to increased national attention to the Palestinian cause at the political level, as well as to action on the domestic Palestinian level. He pointed to Palestinian youth mobilizing through social media, including Twitter and Facebook, seeking tools and mechanisms to end the division and weakness that has brought the Palestinian cause to a deeply weak state of division and fragmentation.

He noted that these young people have raised the slogan, "The People Want to End the Division," and more than 500 Palestinian and Arab youth groups have arisen to communicate through digital media in order to struggle for Palestinian national unity. He pointed to the fact that the Arab revolutions have inspired Palestinian youth to break the barriers of fear in order to call for an end to division and the restoration of the Palestinian cause.

Comrade al-Jamal noted that the Front calls upon all Palestinian youth to invest their energy in building the Palestinian community and cause and to take initiatives, and that it supports all such efforts to end the division and protect the national cause.

1) முதலாவது ஏகாதிபத்திய உலக மறுபங்கீட்டு உலகப் போரின் உடனடி விளைவாக 1917 ஒக்ரோபர் ரசிய சோசலிஸப் புரட்சி உலகத்தில் முதல் தடவையாக ஒடுக்கப்பட்ட பாட்டாளி வர்க்கத்தின் சர்வாதிகார அரசை உருவாக்கியது.இதன் தலைமையில் ஒரு சோசலிச உலகம் உருவாகியது.

மனித சமுதாயத்தின் நவீன - முதலாளித்துவ- வரலாற்றில், இது முதலாவது மாபெரும் புரட்சியாகும்.

(உள்நாட்டு சர்வதேச ஏகாதிபத்திய சதியால் இப் புரட்சி முறியடிக்கப்பட்டது)

2) முதல் உலக சோசலிசப் புரட்சியைத் தொடர்ந்து நேரடிக் காலனியாதிக்கம் முறியடிக்கப்பட்டு காலனி நாடுகள் ‘சுதந்திரம்’ பெற்றன.

In UN Libya Resolution, US Insistence on ICC Exclusion Shields Mercenaries from Algeria, Ethiopia
By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, February 26 -- After passage of a compromise Libya resolution by the UN Security Council on Saturday night, Inner City Press asked French Permanent Representative Gerard Araud if mercenaries aren't let off the hook by the sixth operative paragraph, exempting personnel from states not members of the International Criminal Court from ICC prosecution.

Araud regretted the paragraph, but said the the United States had demanded it. He said, “No, that's, that was for one country, it was absolutely necessary for one country to have that considering its parliamentary constraints, and this country we are in. It was a red line for the United States. It was a deal-breaker, and that's the reason we accepted this text to have the unanimity of the Council.”

While a Bush administration Ambassador to the UN in 2002 threatened to veto a UN resolution on Bosnia if it did not contain a similar exclusion, the Obama administration has maintained this insistence on impunity, which in this case applies to mercenaries from Algeria, Tunisia and Ethiopia, among other mercenary countries. (In the case of Algeria, there are allegations of official support for Gadhafi).

While Inner City Press was able to ask UK Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant about the exclusion for mercenaries from non ICC countries, US Permanent Representative Susan Rice did not take a question from Inner City Press, and none on this topic, despite having mentioned mercenaries in her speech.

When Libya, but no longer Gadhafi, diplomat Ibrahim Dabbashi came out to take questions, Inner City Press asked him which countries the mercenaries used by Gadhafi come from.

He mentioned Algeria, Tunisia and Ethiopia -- highlighted by NGOs as non ICC members -- as well as Chad, Niger, Kenya and Guinea. So some mercenaries could be prosecuted by the ICC, and not others, under language demanded by the US Mission to the UN. (Watch this site.N/A)

Here is the US-demanded paragraph:

6. Decides that nationals, current or former officials or personnel from a State outside the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya which is not a party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of that State for all alleged acts or omissions arising out of or related to operations in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya established or authorized by the Council, unless such exclusive jurisdiction has been expressly waived by the State.

Footnote: Araud blaming the US position on "parliamentary constraints" seemed to some a way to try to blame a decision by Obama's executive branch on the Republicans who recently took over the House of Representatives. But it was an Obama administration decision. More nuanced apologists blame the Defense Department for pulling rank on State. But the result is mercenaries firing freely.
