Der Libyenschlamassel, mehr künstlerisch betrachtet

von Oliver M. Piecha

Die Amerikaner schießen keine Panzer mehr ab, die Nato trifft sowieso die Falschen und bisher ist nur Westerwelle letal verwundet worden. Und Gaddafi sitzt tief in irgendeinem Bunker und schmollt. Der Imperialismus fabriziert offensichtlich nurmehr Disaster. Und der neueste libysche Außenminister ("Obeidi") ist tatsächlich immer noch nicht übergelaufen. Sondern klüngelt mit Herrn Erdogan ("die dunkle Seite der Nato") hochfliegende Gaddafirettungspläne aus.

Obeidi was reported to be floating ideas for a three-country tour in search of a political solution, with Gaddafi staying in power while constitutional reforms were introduced. Libya’s opposition and the international coalition reject any plan involving Gaddafi remaining in power. […]
Erdogan outlined three elements to his proposal: a ceasefire in the cities surrounded by Gaddafi’s forces, including Misrata; a humanitarian corridor to allow aid to enter, co-ordinated with Tripoli; and negotiations leading to a new political process in Libya, including free elections.
Sources close to Erdogan said he had discussed the proposal with Obeidi, who would take the message back to Tripoli.

“Obeidi", wenn er denn wirklich zurückfährt, wird also in Tripolis von “negotiations leading to a new political process in Libya, including free elections", berichten. Grandios! Ein demokratischer Aufbruch, sozusagen. Aber auch nur sozusagen. Und Gaddafis italienische Panzerhaubitzen werden dazu über dem belagerten Misurata Salut schießen.

Man könnte nun den sowieso erledigten Westerwelle als neutralen Beobachter über Misurata abwerfen. Nur wäre das dann eine mehr militärische oder pazifistische Aktion? Oder mehr Jeff Koons?

Führer in Spendierlaune - plötzlich 250.000 Syrer mehr

von Oliver M. Piecha

Assad spendiert die syrische Staatsangehörigkeit für mehr als 250.000 Kurden. Die meisten der syrischen Kurden, die geschätzte 10-20% der Bevölkerung ausmachen, sind offiziell nämlich gar keine Syrer. Ohne entsprechende Papiere sind sie mehr oder weniger gar nichts; einmal jenseits der Grenze, konnten sie nicht einmal (offiziell) zurückkehren. Noch so eine feine Bevölkerungsbehandlungsmethode des antiimperialistischen Panarabismus. Man hatte den Kurden Anfang der sechziger Jahre die Staatsangehörigkeit entzogen, seien sie doch, so die Begründung, nur zugewandert, etwa aus der Türkei. Denn wo es offiziell gar keine syrischen Kurden gibt, kann es ja auch kein kurdisches Problem in Syrien geben.

Woher nur das plötzliche Wohlwollen Assads gegenüber einem seit rund 50 Jahren unterdrückten Bevölkerungsteil kommt? Ob es wohl damit zu tun hat, daß am letzten Freitag die ersten Kurden auf die Straße demonstrieren gegangen sind? Und ob nun die frischgebackenen syrischen Staatsbürgern mit dem hübschen Pass einer Diktatur zufrieden gestellt sind?

President Assad - who is under pressure from pro-democracy protests - met Kurdish leaders in the city of Hasaka on Tuesday to hear their demands.
But Kurdish leader Habib Ibrahim told Reuters news agency Syria’s Kurds would continue a non-violent struggle for civic rights and democracy in spite of the decree.
“Our cause is democracy for the whole of Syria. Citizenship is the right of every Syrian.
“It is not a favour. It is not the right of anyone to grant,” he said.

Große Briefe der Weltgeschichte

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Ein Dokument, dass in die Annalen der Weltgeschichte eingehen wird:

 

Our son, Excellency,
President Obama
U.S.A

We have been hurt more morally that physically because of what had happened against us in both deeds and words by you. Despite all this you will always remain our son whatever happened. We still pray that you continue to be president of the U.S.A. We Endeavour and hope that you will gain victory in the new election campaigne. You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action. I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that.

Enough evidence is available, Bearing in mind that you are the president of the strongest power in the world nowadays, and since Nato is waging an unjust war against a small people of a developing country. This country had already been subjected to embargo and sanctions, furthermore it also suffered a direct military armed aggression during Reagan’s time. This country is Libya.

Hence, to serving world peace … Friendship between our peoples … and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror, you are in a position to keep Nato off the Libyan affair for good. As you know too well democracy and building of civil society cannot be achieved by means of missiles and aircraft, or by backing armed member of AlQuaeda in Benghazi.

You _ yourself _ said on many occasions, one of them in the UN General Assembly, I was witness to that personally, that America is not responsible for the security of other peoples. That America helps only. This is the right logic.

Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama, your intervention is the name of the U.S.A. is a must, so that Nato would withdraw finally from the Libyan affair. Libya should be left to Libyans within the African union frame.

The problem now stands as follows:-

1. There is Nato intervention politically as well as military.

2. Terror conducted by AlQaueda gangs that have been armed in some cities, and by force refused to allow people to go back to their normal life, and carry on with exercising their social people’s power as usual.

Kommandostrukturen

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Der Guardian informiert über die äußerst transparenten und effizienten Strukturen der Libyen Intervention (anders gefragt: wollten die so mal die Sowjetunion militärisch besiegen?):

Nato is running short of attack aircraft for its bombing campaign against Muammar Gaddafi only days after taking command of the Libyan mission from a coalition led by the US, France and Britain. (…)

Nato officials insisted the pace of the air operations was being maintained. But it has emerged that the US and the French, who have been the two biggest military players until now, are retaining national control over substantial military forces in the Mediterranean and refusing to submit them to Nato authority.

The French have the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier, two escorting frigates and 16 fighter aircraft, none of which are under the Nato command and control which was announced last Thursday. (…)

It’s pretty clear that Nato is in command. Nato is in the lead,” said Van Uhm. “There are assets under national control in the area. But General Bouchard is commanding what Nato does … You could say nothing is happening without Nato knowing.”

"We know how to make freedom"

Ein Rebell in der libyschen Wüste; vorne die Gitarre und hinten die Panzerfaust. Und sein Song:

Selbstverwaltete Stämme

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Wie die Yemen Times berichtet, übernehmen in immer mehr Gouvernoraten im Jemen Stämme und Oppositionelle gemeinsam die Regierungsgeschäfte:

The governorates of Al-Jawf, Sa’ada and Abyan have already been taken over by those opposing the government. Those in control of these governorates claim that their acts are only a step towards forcing the current regime to step down. Security forces have also been withdrawn from Marib and Shabwa governorates.

Many tribes that have a history of revenge attacks lasting over three decades have reconciled for the first time. They have been united in their opposition to President Saleh. In Al-Tagheer Square, two previously opposing tribes who have been trying to kill each other for almost 30 years, now live together in one tent as a family
.

Und die Proteste machen es möglich, man vergisst gar gewohnte und bekannte Stammestraditionen:

“One of the protesters saw his uncle for the first time in 16 years. They had not seen each other because of a revenge issue. They hugged and cried in public, forgiving each other. No civil war will occur in Yemen as long as the tribes are acting this way,” he added. Al-Sumi said that no tribe will try to harm another tribe, as they don’t want to start new revenge issues. And this makes all the tribes on one side.

Der Tsunami macht's möglich

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Szenen, die von einem Nahen Osten sprechen, wie er auch möglich wäre und kurz in Japan Realität wurde:

An Israeli team of 12 ZAKA (Disaster Victim Identification) volunteers sent to Japan to help out with rescue efforts worked alongside an unlikely team on Sunday – the official Iranian delegation.  (…)

The Iranians told the ZAKA volunteers: “You know we are cousins. The wars and conflicts are between the leaders, but between the people there should be peace. We can’t forget we were close once.”
