US deploys 12,000 troops in Libya

by THETOTALCOLLAPSE.COM on JANUARY 21, 2012

Hello there! If you are new here, you might want tosubscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic.

The United States has sent some 12,000 soldiers to Libya, in the first phase of deployments to the oil-rich North African nation.

According to Asharq Alawsat, the troops landed in the eastern oil port city of Brega.

Although the deployment is said to be aimed at generating stability and security in the region, the troops are expected to take control of the country’s key oil fields and strategic ports.

Brega, the site of an important oil refinery, serves as a major export hub for Libyan oil. The town is also one of the five oil terminals in the eastern half of the country.

Following the popular uprising of the Libyan people, NATO launched a major air campaign against the forces of the former regime on March 19, 2011 under a UN mandate to “protect the Libyan population.”

The Western military alliance, however, was heavily criticized for its failure to protect civilians and taking action beyond the terms of the UN mandate.

On October 20, Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was killed in his hometown of Sirte, eight months into an uprising that put an end to his 42-year dictatorship.

Human rights groups have accused NATO of committing war crimes and human rights violations against Libyans.

It is with great disappointment that I receive the news from foreign media publications and Libyan sources that our President now has 12,000 U.S. troops stationed in Malta and they are about to make their descent into Libya.

This seems to be the same report circulating.

My guess is that the U.S. wants Libya to be able to replace Iran as a source of oil for European nations. Then the U.S. will have full EU support for sanctions. Iran can't retaliate against Libya.

Confirmation is questionable. The initial U.S. response is a denial.

The US Embassy in a single line statement this morning reiterated the Maltese government’s statement categorically denying claims that there are US troops in Malta.

The source of this, WND and Alex Jones, makes me suspicious… They are alarmist and untrustworthy.

    I agree. I had been reading the African Newspapers, and it appears that we have some involvement, perhaps more covert then this. I picked up the story orginally athttp://www.presstv.ir/det...22317.html We for sure have some boots on the ground in various countries, one form or another. I use to throw out Alex and WND because of their alarming stories. A good number unfortunately have turned out to be true.. this one, not so much.

On January 13, Cynthia McKinney said Obama has 12,000 US troops in Malta heading for Libya.

I guess this is where this story started.

No evidence at all.

She must be an Orger.

Is President Obama sending 12,000 U.S. troops to Libya?

There are currently 12,000 US troops based in Malta that are awaiting deployment to Libya. They will be joined by Italian and French forces based on photographic evidence of encampments that have been set up in the desert.
According to Libyan sources, the NATO installed National Transitional Council, which comprises a loosely knit band of militia groups, is now facing strong opposition from ordinary Libyans as well as being weakened from in-fighting between the militias for a share of the spoils. An incident involving the Misrata rebels (NATO allies) where they attempted to gain access to the petroleum platforms in Brega, a Libyan port that controls oil exports, and were summarily killed by the very same NATO Apache gunships that assisted them to track down General Gaddafi. NATO warships are patrolling Libyan ports and already control the petroleum platforms which are staffed by United Arab Emirates engineers whilst ordinary Libyans remain unemployed and on the verge of a humanitarian crisis. Also, the systematic rape, torture and killing of villagers and Black Libyans are commonplace by the US/NATO armed militias. According to Cynthia McKinney, 2008 presidential candidate for the Green Party, the destabilisation of Libyan society is part of the carefully crafted plan entitled “"A Clean Break: A New Stra... the Realm," by people affiliated with the Project for a New American Century (PNAC). She writes, “this sociocide of Libyan society, as we previously witnessed in Iraq and Afghanistan before it, is part of a carefully crafted plan of destabilization that ultimately serves U.S. imperial interests and those of a Zionist state and its US agents who are bent on Greater Israel’s suzerainty over huge swaths of Arabic-speaking populations.
