1/ Reminder: Prior to 2011 #NATO War, #Libya had the Highest Standard of Living in Africa

By Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey

In 2011, #NATO launched an illegal, savage attack against the country with the Highest Human Development Index in Africa. Let us see where Libya stands today.
2/ When #Cameron, #Sarkozy, #Obama, #Clinton and that sickening clique of #warmongering, interfering, imperialist thugs decided to attack Libya in 2011, in an attack planned and orchestrated for months in advance, they told us their fight was not against the people of #Libya.
3/ Looking at #Libya today, who were they fooling and who is suffering? Under international law regarding the scope of applicability, there are rules as to the wanton and brazen use of force turning a peaceful situation into an ongoing theater of conflict.

La seconda puntata di "Putin Vs the West", eccezionale documentario BBC, scandisce le tappe di avvicinamento alla guerra in #Ucraina fornendo incredibili testimonianze su tattica e "stile" di Vladimir #Putin in fatto di politica estera.
Bugia, bluff, cinismo: armi Image
nell'arsenale dell'uomo del Cremlino, utilizzate in più e più occasioni, già a partire dalle crisi in #Libia e #Siria.
David #Cameron, già primo ministro inglese, spiega: "Ogni volta che trattavo con lui, sapevo che era un uomo pericoloso, complicato, e potenzialmente molto Image
cattivo". Ma nel febbraio del 2011, con le rivoluzioni della Primavera Araba che rovesciano i dittatori di Tunisia prima ed Egitto poi, Vladimir Putin è un interlocutore indispensabile quando l'Occidente pensa che l'unico modo per spodestare Mu'ammar #Gheddafi sia un Image

Dopo aver visionato in anteprima "#Putin Vs the West", in onda questa sera sulla BBC, posso dire che l'anticipazione sulla telefonata intercorsa fra #BorisJohnson e Vladimir Putin è solo una - e nemmeno la più fragorosa - delle bombe giornalistiche di cui oggi i cittadini del
Regno Unito potranno godere in prima serata.
Il documentario è di fatto una ricostruzione storica attraverso il metodo del "dietro le quinte", un susseguirsi di retroscena raccontati dai protagonisti che mette sotto la lente di ingrandimento gli avvenimenti e le negoziazioni
che hanno condotto fino all'odierna situazione tra #Russia e #Ucraina.
La prima delle tre puntate della serie prende le mosse dall'#Euromaidan e arriva fino alla firma degli accordi di #Minsk, ma per rendere chiaro quanto la cronaca sia strettamente collegata alla storia di

Non sarà #Borisback, con sommo dispiacere dei cronisti politici, alla disperata ricerca di personaggi - caratteri - da raccontare. Precipitarsi a Londra dai Caraibi non è bastato. Rovinare la vacanza alla moglie Carrie - chissà come l'avrà presa, i vicini di casa ricordano
nitidamente le sue urla, qualche anno fa, nell'atto di dare al povero #BoJo del viziato per un po' di vino versato sul divano (e che sarà mai!), e subito dopo il "crash" del suo portatile scaraventato chissà dove (non solo gossip, c'è dell'epica).
Boris si fa da parte
dalla corsa per la leadership dei Conservatori (e dunque del governo del Regno Unito).
Per ora, per l'unità del partito, per il bene del Paese. Sì, ma chi lo conosce assicura che il motivo è un altro: "Johnson si ritira da una corsa solo se è certo di non poterla vincere",

@chrisriddell50 My first thought when I saw this today was whether your colleague @MartinRowson might regard these events as, 'a storm in a fur cup'!

...evidently, there are agendas but, some are too quick to impose their interpretation on events - they hear but don't LISTEN! Image
"In the last few weeks, the benefits to Russia from its sabre-rattling must have far exceeded the Kremlin’s expectations. It has produced a traffic jam of presidents, prime minister and ministers making their way to Moscow."
"They may be issuing warnings against a Russian invasion of Ukraine, but the reality is that for the first time since 1991 Russia is once again being treated as a superpower to be feared, cultivated and never disregarded."

WHAT do we teach our children?

DO we tell them the LIE that the law is dispensed EQUALLY to rich and poor?

Or DO we tell them the TRUTH that there is one law for the rich and another - much harsher - for the poor?

WHAT do we teach our children?

DO we tell them always to tell the TRUTH?

HOW do we explain that the prime minister and his regime LIE and LIE?
WHAT do we teach our children?

DO we tell them that if they make an agreement with someone, they have to honour that?

HOW do we explain that the prime minister makes agreements and then breaks them?

Little bit like their former communist friends (Russia) the leadership are getting their Oligarchs/Titans in-line & on-message before their potential big push.

It cannot be right that a Prime Minister can grant high levels of access to a business seeking government support, and then potentially offer him over £20million in shares when he leaves office and presses his friends and colleagues to help the business.…

#Newsnight digs up a clip of @David_Cameron (then PM) saying that lobbying was "the next big scandal waiting to happen".


@David_Cameron .@campbellclaret on #Newsnight, saying that Johnson and his ministers regularly break all 7 of the #NolanPrinciples - and he finds it "scary" that no one seems, with this government, to care very much about those breaches of public standards, or to view them as scandals.
@David_Cameron @campbellclaret Prof Elizabeth David-Barrett says on #Newsnight that the matters around Cameron/Arcuri are not so much about rule-breaking as "declining [public] standards".

And she gives examples, including those around (lack of) transparency.

Blistering introductory monologue by @maitlis on standards in public life covering the #AcuriAffair #BorisJohnson #DavidCameron & #PritiPatel

The last time #Newsnight did such a
powerful opening was in May in the midst of the Barnard Castle scandal
“A great journalist puts into words the things people feel. They seek truth & speak truth & are never seduced by the gilded strumpet of power”
(E. Warner)

Following her monologue on Cummings, the govt complained to the BBC

Instead of backing @maitlis, the BBC issued an apology!
“What is spectacularly gutless is that these ministers have avoided @GMB , @Channel4News, @BBCNewsnight & anywhere they might get rough ride. That’s a dereliction of their duty as govt ministers. It’s completely shameful.” @piersmorgan

It’s a national scandal & nothing is done!

X : Have you seen #factcheckUK ?
Me : I'm aware of accusations that the Conservative party changed the display name of its social media account to this. Such actions go far beyond propaganda and into disinformation and deception. It questions the values of organisation ...
i.e. it would not be a simple case of spinning news anymore or being economical with the truth. Such an action crosses a line into deliberate deception. No political party should ever cross that line, it's more what you would expect from organised crime.
Unfortunately, it doesn't stop there. The real threat is whether such actions were taken deliberately to cause #outrage. In which case, we're now talking about psychological manipulation and these are crafts of war, not suited to political discourse ...

Have you heard of #Hotelling’s Law? In a two party system, it says that you get most votes by minimising the political distance between the parties. It’s worked well in the past, but it’s about to bring an end to both #Labour and the #Tory party. 1/n…
Hotelling’s law worked really well for Tony #Blair. #Thatcher had moved the Tory party to the right, so #NewLabour had an opportunity to increase its vote share by also moving rightwards. 2/n
Politics had shifted. Both parties held broadly similar policies. Blair’s political stance, although to the left of Thatcher’s, was much further right than any Labour leader previously (or since). Labour was able to capture ground that the Tories had left unguarded. 3/n

Fascinating & damning deep-dive into the mess that followed #Assad’s Sarin attack in E. #Ghouta in August '13.

@BarackObama’s “cold feet” & distance, #Putin’s political “games” & @Ed_Miliband being “actively unhelpful.”

= Delays guaranteed no action.…
@BarackObama @Ed_Miliband #pt: Exasperated at how distant #Obama had seemed & how difficult it was to connect with him by phone, the UK’s PM #Cameron said:

- "The next time I ask to talk to the president about chemical weapons attacks, tell me to turn over on my sun lounger and go to sleep.” #Syria
@BarackObama @Ed_Miliband #pt: After briefly expressing support for UK military action in #Syria, @Ed_Miliband's turn to party politics to slow/prevent action left PM #Cameron’s office furious, to say the least:

- “No 10 & the Foreign Office think Ed Miliband is a f****** c*** & a copper-bottomed s***.”
