U.S. foreign policy decisions in both Haiti and Libya have been far cruder than the comments made by Presidents Trump and Obama.
The mainstream media is horrified by the idea that President Trump would refer to Haiti as a “Shithole” country—but they seem to have forgotten that President Obama referred to Libya as a “Shit show,” and that the United States has had a hand in ensuring that both countries continue to be plagued with problems.
The media launched a firestorm after a report from the Washington Post claimed that during a meeting with lawmakers in the Oval Office on Thursday, Trump said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
The comment was reportedly in reference to a discussion on “protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.” Trump became “frustrated” with the lawmakers in the meeting, and proposed that the U.S. should prioritize immigrants from Norway, over countries such as Haiti, according to (more…)
While Libya remains a failed state in the wake of the 2011 NATO war against the Great Socialist People’ Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, many have pinned their hopes on Saif al-Islam Gaddafi who since his release from captivity this year, has been touring the country and building support among Libya’ many tribal factions.
According to his spokesman,
“Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of the former Libyan president, enjoys the support of major tribes in Libya so he can run for the upcoming presidential elections due in 2018.
Saif al-Islam plans to impose more security and stability in accordance with the Libyan geography and in coordination with all Libyan factions”.

A new CNN investigation has uncovered a network of slave markets operating in warehouses in various cities across Libya six years after NATO-led intervention in the country toppled the government of Muammar Gaddafi in support of US and UK backed rebels. And not only did CNN confirm the presence of slave auctions where human beings are being sold for as little as $400 in “liberated” Libya, but CNN’s crew was actually able to film a live auction in progress, while also gathering the testimonies of multiple victims.
Though CNN’s footage and accompanying report is shocking, such practices have been quietly documented for years, and clear warnings were issued starting in early 2011 that Libya’s black as well as migrant population would be the first to fall victim at the hands of the Islamist Libyan rebels that NATO’s war empowered. From the outset critics of Western intervention in Libya loudly sounded (more…)
It is unlikely that the DPRK will ever return to nuclear virginity. Pyongyang has multiple reasons for retaining its nukes. For a country with an economy roughly the size of Paraguay’, a bizarre political system that has no external appeal, and an increasingly antiquated conventional military force, a nuclear-weapons capability is the sole factor that provides prestige and a seat at the table of international affairs. There is one other crucial reason for the DPRK’ truculence, though. North Korean leaders simply do not trust the United States to honor any agreement that might be reached.
Libya announced it is ready to accept any Russian initiative to resolve the conflict.
Libya is ready to accept any Russian initiative to establish political dialogue in the country, since Moscow has contacts with each of the parties of the conflict, and has a balanced position on the situation, said Deputy Prime Minister of the national unity government Akhmed Maetig.

Butcher of Libya defeated: Libyan tribes happy Trump elected, attacks stopped immediately as jihadists mourned Hillary’s loss
The Libyan tribes called yesterday to express their great happiness in the election Donald J. Trump to be the next President of the USA. They also wish to thank all the American people for standing up against corruption and evil. They, the people of Libya know first hand the evil that this woman is capable of by her war crimes and lies committed in 2011 to destroy their country. They have suffered for over 5 years with her “behind the scenes” support of the illegal occupation of their country by her radical Islamic mercenary proxy army, her support of the 4% of Libyans that are radical Islamic terrorists and their forcibly installed puppet governments.
The tribes of Libya have spies in every sector of Libya. They informed me that they knew there was to be an attack on their country this coming week-end (Nov 12th & 13th). The attack was to target oil fields and the Libyan National army now fighting the radical Islamic terrorists. They know that the attack was to be staged out of Qatar directed by Hillary Clinton.
They stated: “When Donald Trump won the election, (more…)
