Michel Collon säger några sanna ord om medialögnerna som ondskans axelmakter använt som förevändning för att ge sig på Libyen.
Libyska staten har stora penningsummor i utländska banker som nu frusits. Vad händer med de nu? Vem bestämmer vad de ska användas till? Libyen har hjälpt andra afrikanska länder att finansiera diverse projekt, så att dessa slapp blanda in Världsbanken och IMF. Det kanske är en anledning till att Khadaffi måste angripas, först av medierna och sen av brutal militärmakt.
Manlio Dinucci – Financial Heist of the Century: Confiscating Libya’s Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF)
On January 20 Layas informed the U.S. ambassador in Tripoli that LIA had deposited $32 billion in U.S. banks. Five weeks later, on February 28, the U.S. Treasury “froze” these accounts. According to official statements, this is ”the largest sum ever blocked in the United States,” which Washington held ”in trust for the future of Libya.” It will in fact serve as an injection of capital into the U.S. economy, which is more and more in debt. A few days later, the EU ”froze” around 45 billion Euros of Libyan funds.
The assault on the Libyan sovereign wealth funds will have a particularly strong impact in Africa. There, the Libyan Arab African Investment Company had invested in over 25 countries, 22 of them in sub-Saharan Africa, and was planning to increase the investments over the next five years, especially in mining, manufacturing, tourism and telecommunications. The Libyan investments have been crucial in the implementation of the first telecommunications satellite Rascom (Regional African Satellite Communications Organization), which entered into orbit in August 2010, allowing African countries to begin to become independent from the U.S. and European satellite networks, with an annual savings of hundreds of millions of dollars.
Even more important were the Libyan investment in the implementation of three financial institutions launched by the African Union: the African Investment Bank, based in Tripoli, the African Monetary Fund, based in Yaoundé (Cameroon), the African Central Bank, with Based in Abuja (Nigeria). The development of these bodies would enable African countries to escape the control of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, tools of neo-colonial domination, and would mark the end of the CFA franc, the currency that 14 former French colonies are forced to use. Freezing Libyan funds deals a strong blow to the entire project. The weapons used by ”the willing” are not only those in the military action called “Unified Protector.”
