French Ex President Sarkozy accepted about 50 Mio USD from Libya’s (killed 2011 by rebel groups) dictator Gaddafi as “friendship gift” which he spend in the 2007 election campaign to win presidency by 53.1%.
Of course General Gaddafi ruled Libya with a iron fist and now another General tries to take power and brought war back to Libya.
General Haftar Attack of Tripoli escalates civil war in splintered Libya

The French oil company TOTAL is operating in Libya
and Gaddafi’s removal was very much in their interest.
When insurgents surged (maybe started by US CIA and backed by the US) France stepped in with it’s Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier to drop even more bombs on Gaddafi – for the single purpose to directly extract the oil from the ground without a middleman.
The sideffects of this greedy tactic: the refugee crisis of 2015
which swept accross europe and the resulting boost for right-wing parties accross europe. (Poland is strictly Catholic, while massively profiting from EU investments, did not accept ANY refugees)
While Sarkozy is himself a centre-right politician – so i guess it is the old game: greedy eats brains.
Macron will probably be the last elected president of France, Le Pen will kill democracy in France – Sarkozy and TOTAL are to blame.
Just look at this horrible video from calais and you know why – 30.000 migrants try to cross over from France to UK, but are stuck in France for years.
Merkel ‘Fed up With Erdogan Blackmailing Germany’ With Refugee Deal
The people that flee are mostly – young male black that steal and rape.
And the European governments just don’t know what to do.
“GOOD JOB” all involved.
United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, on the situation in Libya, is a measure that was adopted on 17 March 2011. The Security Council resolution was proposed by France, Lebanon, and the United Kingdom.
HERE YOU CAN SEE AGAIN: NATO IS A PROBLEM – NOT A SOLUTION!
Canada, want some refugees?
Military intervention in Libya began on 19 March, as fighter jets of the French Air Force destroyed several pro-Gaddafi vehicles advancing on rebel stronghold Benghazi. U.S. and British submarines then fired over 110 Tomahawk cruise missiles at targets throughout Libya, severely disabling the regime’s air defense capability and allowing a wider enforcement of the no-fly zone to begin. A coalition of 10 states from Europe and the Middle East initially participated in the intervention, later expanding to 17. On 31 March, NATO assumed command of the operation. The intervention succeeded in preventing pro-Gaddafi forces from capturing Benghazi.
On 24 August, it was acknowledged for the first time that special forces troops from Britain, Italy, France, Jordan, Qatar, and the UAE had intervened on the ground in Libyan territory, stepping up operations in Tripoli and other cities. This has been questioned as a possible violation of Resolution 1973 although the use of special forces is not prohibited by the resolution.
Noam Chomsky has argued that the Western military intervention into Libya was a clear breach of UNSCR 1973 since it nullified the attempts for a ceasefire that were put forward by the resolution and welcomed by Gaddafi. As he puts it, “NATO powers (France and Britain in the lead and the United States following) violated the resolution, radically, and became the air force of the rebels. Nothing in the resolution justified that. It did call for “all necessary steps” to protect civilians, but there’s a big difference between protecting civilians and being the air force for the rebels.” 
IT IS SICKENING and might even result in many Hitlers 2.0 coming to power all across Europe
All for a little oil.
“Businessman Ziad Takiéddine arrives at the anti-corruption police office in Nanterre, France, on November 17, 2016, for a hearing after admitting
he delivered three cash-stuffed suitcases from Libya’s Moammar Gaddafi to former French President Nicolas Sarkozy”
He won the French presidential election, 2007 by a 53.1% to 46.9% margin to Socialist Ségolène Royal. During his term, he faced the late-2000s financial crisis (causing a recession and the European sovereign debt crisis) and the Arab Spring (especially in Tunisia, Libya, and Syria). He initiated the reform of French universities (2007) and the pension reform (2010).
He was the leader of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) party from 2004 to 2007.
- Blair’s ultimatum on Libya
In February 2011 Tony Blair’s assistant Catherine Rimmer, emailed Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, enclosing a copy of notes from Blair’s recent personal call with Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi. At this time, the US and UK were on the verge of going to war with Libya, claiming that the Libyan leader was promoting civilian massacres in his country. Blair was by now out of UK office and was Middle East Envoy for the UN but had personal relations with Gadaffi over a number of years. Rimmer noted:
“Mr Blair wanted me to let you know that he is making these calls very privately and is not briefing the media”. Rimmer stated that “Tony Blair delivered a very strong message to Gaddafi that the violence had to end and that he had to stand aside to allow a peaceful process to take place”.
Blair went further, however. The notes of the call show that Blair specifically threatened Gadaffi with war unless he stand down. He told Gadaffi: “The US and the EU are in a tough position right now and I need to take something back to them which ensures this ends peacefully”. This call was made on 25 February. Three weeks later, on 19 March, the US and UK began bombing Libya.
The outcome was disastrous for the people of Libya, plunging the country into lawlessness in which ungoverned spaces new terrorist forces arose while Libya became a dangerous transit hub for refugees seeking to reach Europe.
