Hillary Clinton’s War
The woman who destroyed a country and murdered its leader, unleashing a surge of migrants from Africa, is the honoured guest at a “celebration of human rights” by Manchester arts group HOME. Who said satire was dead?
This was the ghoulish, gleeful response — accompanied by a triumphant chortle and beaming smile (watch it on YouTube) — of Hillary Rodham Clinton to a CBS interviewer prior to a television broadcast, on the demise of Muammar Gaddafi, dispatched with the business end of a bayonet up his rectum.
As Secretary of State to Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton was a key player and the driving force in implementing regime change in Libya by disposing of its leader and bombing the country back into the desert.
In an interview with John Pilger, Julian Assange labelled it “Hillary Clinton’s War”.
As he explained to Pilger, 1700 leaked emails revealed the real reason for her zeal as a warmonger — to give her campaign a boost in the forthcoming election: “She perceived the removal of Gaddafi and the overthrow of the Libyan state as something that she would use to run in the general election, for president.”
As a result, an estimated 40,000 people, most of them civilians, died in the initial conflict. Apart from the destruction of the country, it also unleashed a mass migration from central Africa. Gaddafi’s iron rule of Libya had been an effective barricade — the “cork in the bottle” according to Assange — holding back hordes of migrants and jihadists.
Now it was released and they crossed the Mediterranean in their thousands to get to Europe — or attempted to get there in leaky boats and patched-up rubber dinghies. Inevitably, many of the poor souls died by drowning, desperately fleeing starvation and a war-torn country.
For all of this death and misery and wanton destruction, one person was the prime instigator and bears direct personal responsibility.
Hillary Rodham Clinton.
And yet once again, to prove that a graveyard sense of humour and total absence of moral and ethical principles are alive and flourishing in the UK, the arts complex HOME, based in Manchester in the north-west of England, has invited warmonger HRC to be interviewed on Zoom by Baroness Helena Kennedy QC. Here’s their press release:
“This week we announced brand new events for the Ripples of Hope Festival, a celebration of human rights .… And next week, tickets will go on sale for In Conversation With Hillary Rodham Clinton, a transatlantic discussion of Secretary Clinton's extraordinary life.”
But wait. We’re not done. It gets better. Or worse.
Manchester is the city that in 2017 suffered a terrorist attack when a bomb was detonated at an Ariana Grande concert in the Manchester Arena. It killed twenty-two people, mainly children and teenagers, and causing dreadful injuries and lifelong disabilities to a further nine hundred concert-goers and their families.
The perpetrator was 23-year old Salman Abedi. His rucksack carried the home-made bomb packed with nuts and bolts and shards of tin cut from empty cooking oil canisters. He was from Libya.
The Abedi family emigrated to Britain from Libya during the rule of Colonel Gaddafi, settling in the Fallowfield area of Manchester. The suicide bomber, Salman, his younger brother, and their father, were members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), whose sole aim and purpose was to overthrow Gaddafi.
In this they were aided and supported and funded by both branches of the British security services, MI5 and MI6. Another Libyan exile, Belal Younis, was told by an MI5 intelligence officer: “The British government have no problem with people fighting against Gaddafi.”
Not only was the government quite open and unashamed about it, they saw nothing wrong in seeking to destabilise another sovereign state and depose its leader. (“Britain and France are using Qatar to bankroll the Libyan rebels” — The Times, June 2011.)
Members of the Abedi family and other affiliates of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, a proscribed terrorist organisation affiliated to ISIS, were allowed to travel back and forth between Libya and Manchester without hindrance. No questions asked.
This “Open Door” policy of the British government went on despite the fact that many of the Libyan exiles were known to the authorities and thought dangerous enough to be kept under surveillance and have counter-terrorism control orders slapped on them.
David Cameron was prime minister at the time. The home secretary, under whose remit the intelligence services operate, was Theresa May, the next prime minister. Neither one has had to answer for their part — their crucial role — in giving free rein, plus material support, to an ideological jihadist cause which led ultimately, and tragically, to the terrorist attack on the Manchester Arena in which 22 young people died.
And neither has Hillary Rodham Clinton. A case could be made that by her direct instigation of the war on Libya, she shares the blame along with Cameron and May for the terrorist atrocities in Manchester.
The dots aren’t hard to follow, are they? Even a child could connect them:
= Hillary Rodham Clinton — instigator and cheerleader for the war on Libya.
= David Cameron and Theresa May — facilitating the LIFG.
= The Abedi family helped by MI5 and MI6.
= The Manchester Arena terrorist attack.
But apparently it’s beyond the management committee that organises and runs the HOME arts complex. These folk must live in a bubble of wilful ignorance and rarefied privilege. Or is it that they know of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s murderous military adventuring and are just too bedazzled by her global celebrity to care?
