The EU threatens to occupy Libya militarily; is another colonial war brewing?

It was really deplorable to watch the 28 EU leaders who gathered in Brussels last week after the hecatombs of drowned emigrants, to solemnly discuss aggressive military operations on the soil and the sea ports of their Mediterranean neighbours. They decided to use military force and thus kill people, in order to forcefully reverse the waves of desperate people, who abandon their destroyed homelands hoping to find refuge in Europe. And all that, after the EU collided with the US and destroyed in cold blood Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine and some more countries in Africa and Asia. Let’s follow the facts.

Gaddafi was about to prevail in the internal confrontation and keep Libya in one piece, when the West decided to help his opponents and in so doing it totally destroyed the country. Exactly the same series of events evolved in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine and before that in Yugoslavia. Usually the whole thing starts with a provocation, like the 5 February 1994 massacre at the Sarajevo market place that started the Bosnian war and the dismembering of Yugoslavia. A UN inquiry established that it was impossible to conclude which side had fired the killer mortar shells. It’s a pattern the US and the EU have developed and used during the last twenty years in order to extend their control over other people’s lands and natural wealth.

Sink all fishing boats!

Coming back to today’s developments, the 28 European leaders “have asked Federica Mogherini, the EU High Representative to propose actions allowing to capture and destroy the smuggler’s vessels before they can be used. The High Representative is invited to start the preparations for a possible Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP) operation, in accordance with international law”. This is tantamount to Europe declaring war against an undisclosed Mediterranean country.

How can it be “in accordance with international law”, if the EU destroys in a neighboring country all the vessels that can be used for a crossing of the Mediterranean? Actually every fishing boat harbored in the entire coast of North Africa comes under this category. Obviously the statement issued last Thursday by the EU leaders points to Libya. It asserts “Given that instability in Libya creates an ideal environment for the criminal activities of traffickers, we will actively support all UN-led efforts towards re-establishing government authority in Libya”.

Let’s conquer Libya

In reality the EU is pointing here to an actual military occupation of Libya under a CSDP operation. There is no other way to make sure that no boat loaded with wannabe immigrants would set sail from the Libyan coasts. Unquestionably, the 28 EU leaders mean to at least conquer and control the entire coastal zone of the country. There is more to it though. Their aim to “re-establishing government authority in Libya” means that the EU military operation would actually set the entire country under a kind of foreign rule.

Understandably this has to be so because it is impossible for the more than two thousands armed factions, which are active in Libya, to agree over re-establishing their country by themselves. When the West decided to destroy the Gaddafi regime that kept Libya in one piece, it was pretty clear to everybody that the next phase will be what is now a shocking reality; total lawlessness without hope for Libya to be reemerge as a statehood by her own means.

Yet the EU decided to annihilate Gaddafi and his regime, despite the fact that he had bowed to every possible and impossible demand the West had presented to him. His regime had even accepted to torture on Libyan soil for every Middle Eastern terrorist the US forces had laid their hands on. Today this ungodly activity is transferred to Egypt and parts of Libya are in the hands of the ISIS terrorists and murderers. This is the outcome of the ‘initiative’ the West enforced to Libya. It goes without saying then that what the West wants to make of Libya now, is to secure the oil reach regions and the pipelines to the Mediterranean.

Just Libyan oil

This will be realized by actually occupying this Mediterranean country, after having destroyed its only chance to exist as a more or less governable entity. Unfortunately for the US and the EU planners though things don’t work as intended. The living example is the creation of the ISIS abomination. The Western action in Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria created, if not directly, this ISIS anomaly at least by nurturing it until those murderers decided to work on their own account.

Most possibly the EU is about to commit in Libya one more death-dealing blunder just after its Syrian policy proved to be a catastrophe in every respect. To be noted that last Saturday the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon turned down the EU idea to use military means to stop the immigrant flows and instead he proposed the EU to encourage the legitimate immigration.

For one thing the millions of Afghanis, Iraqis, Libyans, Syrians and other Africans and Middle Eastern people who have lost everything after the West undertook a number of ‘initiatives’ in their countries, won’t disappear just like that. They will continue to look for salvation in Europe. If Libya is closed to them they will head for the Turkish shores, and instead of targeting the Italian islet of Lampedusa they will pick an Aegean island. Already hundreds of them are taking this route.

Turkey won’t cooperate

Turkey however is not Libya. It’s a country governed by the iron hand of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his AK Islamo- authoritarian party. Ankara can more or less control the waves of foreign perspective emigrants crossing its territory on their way to Europe, and this cannot be ignored. On many occasions in the past the Turkish authorities have directed the immigrants who have infiltrated in its soil to the Aegean shores and then to the Greek islands, either by looking the other way or by encouraging the passage. In this way the immigrant wave will just change route and target entering the EU through Turkey and then the many Greek islands.

The 28 EU leaders couldn’t oversee this reality. So they included in their last Thursday’s communiqué a paragraph asking to “step up cooperation with Turkey in view of the situation in Syria and Iraq”. It’s more than certain however that Turkey would ask for a lot in order to cooperate with the EU in this burning issue. The recent recognitions of the Armenian Genocide by the European Parliament and other European legislatures doesn’t offer the right setting for Europe to discuss immigrant routes with Ankara.

Then what?

Putting all that together it becomes crystal clear that it’s quite impossible to stop the tsunami of people who have nothing to lose to besiege the EU. The 28 EU leaders know that very well. So they must have some other, untold objectives in preparing to land in Libya. They most probably want to continue applying their destructive policies on the countries of origin of immigrants in Africa and the Middle East, eyeing the natural resources of this huge region. Securing the flow of the Libyan oil to the EU may be the only worry for European planners. This is not at all easy however but the cost of one more wrong step won’t hurt Europe almost at all. Who cares about the thousands who are drowning in the Mediterranean Sea.

Add to that the problems that Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Mali and Niger are now facing, plus the expansion of ISIS in Africa and you arrive at a deadlock. Remember that the roots of this perfect impairment are in the destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq. Russia and China didn’t care much to intervene as pacifying forces. They just looked after their own interests. Alas the world is so destabilized that the immigrant tsunami will continue to awash the shores of the Mediterranean.
