40 Strike Sorties.
by Dr. Christof Lehmann
is trying to bring it´s readers a balanced reporting on the Libyan war,
containing both in depth analysis and day to day reports. Yesterday
nsnbc received an e-mail from a Libyan expatriate family in Europe,
thanking nsnbc for delivering day to day updates about the situation on
the ground in Libya. With communication between Europe and Libya being
problematic in the best, and rudimentary or non existent in the worst
case, our daily reports are often all information families have
available that can give at least some indication of the situation of
their loved ones. We promised to convey this thank´s to all the other
independent media that are covering the conflict.
After yesterdays reports of NATO preparations to expand military operations into Algeria,
and confirmation that NATO special operations teams have been on the
ground in Algeria for considerable time; and after yesterdays reports
that French Ambassador to Algeria Xavier Driencourt is preparing for emergency evacuation within a week; nsnbc received confirmed reports that tribes from Algeria have entered the war.
According to reliable sources a series of secret meetings between
tribal leaders from Zintan, Libya and Algeria resulted tonight in an
agreement that a unified front of tribal militia will enter the war
which the call “The War for the Liberation of Northern Africa”.
According to the same sources this alliance of tribes is backed by a
unified North African Front, including Moroccan Tribes as well as
Polisario who is fighting against the Moroccan administration of the
Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic. Many members of Sahrawi´s provisional
government and Polisario fighters are living in exile in Algeria. The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic was officially recognized by Libya in 1980, and is recognized by a wide range of countries, non of which is a NATO member state.
Ever since international military support against the NATO led aggression began to manifest and the subsequent adaptation of strategy and tactics
by Khamis Ghadafi and the military leadership of the Libyan Armed
Forces the situation on the ground has, in spite of heaviest fighting
and losses on both sides yielded so positive results that an estimated
95 % of Southern Libya are under the legitimate Libyan Governments
control, enjoying overwhelming popular support.
An overview over last nights military situation up to the morning
today. In Derna a large contingent of TNC fighters fled the city taking
heavy casualties when being heavily pursued by Libyan Military, Tribal
and Popular Resistance. Heavy fighting in Al-Baida resulted early this
morning in about 50% of the city being liberated. At six o clock this
morning we received reports of heavy street to street, house to house
and room to room fighting in Bengazi with heavy casualties on both
sides. An estimated 50% of the city is reported to be liberated. The
main resistance from TNC forces is entrenched in the center of Bengazi. A
contingent of TNC fighters from Tobruk that was detached to relief the
encircled TNC fighters in Bengazi City was literally wiped out when
intelligence from inside TNC cadres in Tobruk made it possible to
prepare an ambush by Libyan Forces.
The utter chaos in military planning among TNC strategists becomes
obvious when considering that a detachment of TNC fighters had left
Bengazi earlier the same night to prepare an attack on Ghat, which was
met with heavy resistance, resulting in 30 TNC casualties. In Zawiah the
green flag is hoisted over a liberated city. After meetings of
representatives from cities and villages around Zliten, yesterday and
tonight, the representatives of the TNC in Zliten were this morning
approached by representatives of Zliten delivering the ultimatum that
the local TNC representatives, together with their foreign mercenaries
should leave by Friday, or face a situation of “being thrown out” by the
Even though the psychological strategists of Pentagon and NATO had
succeeded in deceiving a substantial part of the Libyan population into
believing that they needed a breath of fresh air and reforms, after the
brute awakening to what the Anglo American Empires represents, and how
it is represented by imported Al Qaeda, Afghan and other opportunistic
mercenaries, an estimated 97 % of the Libyan population stands firmly
behind Muammar Ghadafi and the legitimate government of Libya. 97 %
should tell any military expert that the situation is considerably worse
for US ambitions than it was in Vietnam.
