Scoop Election 08: edited by Gordon Campbell

On oil profits (and other administrivia) within the new Libya

August 23rd, 2011

The fighters in western Libya who captured the supply line towns on the way into Tripoli and made the final push into the capital do not come from the same tribal/political factions that started the rebellion in Benghazi to the east, six months ago. This only begins to state the problems the rebellion’s Transitional National Council and its nominal leader Mustafa Abdul Jalil will now face in governing the country. It doesn’t help that Jalil sacked his entire interim Cabinet on August 8, and seems to be ruling by decree. This phantom is the government-in-waiting that New Zealand has chosen to formally recognise today as the legitimate representative of the Libyan people?

That said, revolutions are very rarely a cake walk. In Libya the revolutionary task will be made even more difficult by the way that Muammur Gaddafi erased all forms of civil society and ruled by personality cult for the past 40 years. Civil society will now have to be rebuilt, from the ground up. There is also the festering matter of the murder in July of the rebel army commander Abdul Fattah Younis. Plus, the formerly besieged town of Misrata has reportedly refused to recognise the authority of Jalil’s men…

Add it all up and the claims to legitimacy of a Benghazi-led TNC government – which is the edifice that New Zealand and the rest of the outside world is now rushing to recognise – do not seem all that convincing. Getting rid of Muammur Gaddafi may have been the relatively easy part. Here’s how the international media is summing things up:

The confusion and bickering in the aftermath of the killing [of Younis] bode ill for the council’s claim to be a government of all Libyans. This claim has already been all but rejected by Misrata, Libya’s third city, whose inhabitants are scathing of Mr Abdul Jalil’s rule and of the poor performance of the council’s army units. Commanders in Misrata recently underlined to journalists that they do not accept instructions from the council. Mr Abdul Jalil’s task of imposing order will suffer further because his forces in the east played no part in the twin rebel offensives closing on Tripoli.

These genuine problems can, of course, be over-stated. The people of Libya have shown immense courage and determination in taking on Gaddafi’s forces on the ground and toppling his regime, regardless of the role played by the West in neutralising the dictator’s military superiority. Jalil now has to reach out to those in western Libya who won the final battles, and include them as equals in the new government.

The next test will be to ensure that the profits from Libya’s vast energy reserves are used for the good of its people, and are not monopolised by Western oil companies. The quickest way of undermining the new government will be if events on the ground confirm the conspiracy theories that NATO has just been the military arm of BP, Shell and Chevron. The vultures from BP and Shell are already gathering.

British oil giants are eyeing their route back into Libya, amid expectations that the 42-year reign of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi is in its death throes.

Prior to the Libyan revolution, BP and Shell were exploring the desert in the hope of exploiting an estimated 42bn barrels of reserves….Both are known to be keen to forge strong relationships with whatever government emerges.

Petrofac, the oil services company that supplies some 25pc of British oil producers, has never had a presence in Libya but is planning to take advantage of the expected rush when oil firms return.

Currently, there seems to be no sense that the fall of Gaddafi should involve any change in how oil profits are reaped, and distributed. The only issues to Western analysts seems to be about how long it will take to repair the oil infrastructure damaged by the fighting, and how long before oil exploration and production can be ramped back up again. No one seems to be considering whether the fall of Gaddafi could – or should – create an oil dividend for the Libyan people. Lets hope the West gets a surprise on that score.

      Yeah, agreed. The status quo of the Libyan oil industry should not change in Libya until a legitimate government has been established with a mandate for deciding how Libya’s oil industry should be structured.

      BUT BP, Chevron and ExxonMobil were already in Libya before the revolution. They’re worried about their investments. Just like China is. Especially when an official at the Libyan rebel-run oil firm, AGOCO, said Russian and Chinese firms could lose out on oil contracts for failing to back the rebellion against Gaddafi:

      http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/08/23/china-libya-oil-idUSL4E7JN0Q120110823

      Hell not so long ago Gaddafi was the reformed golden boy of the West. In 2006 Libya was removed from the US’s list of states that sponsor terrorism and ties were normalised and sanctions removed along with the major oil companies getting very chummy with the government again.

      I guess your point is that the major oil companies potentially have a lot to lose…

      Still I get the feeling that any future government of Libya, under pressure to revive a shattered infrastructure, will likely welcome foreign investment in order to get production up and running again… I blame Gaddafi.

      Key is such a turd. His statements, unglossed by PR sound like the 100 level essays I used to grade:

      “We’re standing alongside many nations around the world expressing our desire to see Colonel Gaddafi leave and do so in a way to a make sure there is not extended bloodshed.

      “This is a guy that has taken the lives of many thousands of his citizens who have taken up against him.”

      Marks off for knowing absolutely nothing about anything, John. For your next assignment avoid broad sweeping statements and do some original research. What a tool. And what tools NZers are for voting for him. I’d rather be ruled by an enlightened despot than by such a dithering fool.

      Whatever one might think of Gadhafi, he did deliver some dividends to the Libyan people:

      * The Libyan economy has become the best performing in Africa and has, from time to time, outperform­­ed developed countries such as Italy, Singapore, South Korea, Spain and New Zealand. Every citizen receives a dividend, paid into their bank account from the State Oil Industry.

      * The literacy rate has gone from 20% to the highest in North Africa; over 82% .

      * Education is free and compulsory up to secondary level.

      * Universiti­­es and higher technical and vocational institutes have gone from zero to 84 (with 12 public universiti­­es). Higher education is funded by the State. 1.7 million of 6.4 million Libyans are students.

      * Healthcare for every citizen is free, including travel for procedures not available in Libya.

      * Crime.
      Incarcerat­­ion: 173 per 100,000 people (U.S. 743 incarcerat­­ed per 100,000)
      Murder: 2.2 per 100,000 people (U.S. 5.5 per 100,000)

      * Agricultur­­e
      25-30% of State expenditur­­e goes to Agricultur­­al projects aimed at freeing Libya from its dependence on imported food.

      Similarly with Bashar Assad. He is certainly not the “brutal dictator” he is being characterised as.

      Perhaps certain interests prefer Arab States to be in a state of turmoil?

Dont know if they have any holy places in Libya but if they do sure special ops will be blowing them up to keep the poor sods divided. Media coverage has been a hideous cheering of another criminal take down of a sovereign nation. When did our journalists loose all professional integrity – Presstitutes.

      I’ll give you an example of a truely one sided view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict = The movie by Johm Pilger called “Palestine Is Still The Issue Part 2″. Believe me I was rooting for him all the way when he took on that Israeli official over the occupation of Palestine, but there was absolutely no interview with Hamas at all in the entire movie.

      Why do you think Pilger did that?

      I thought I better balance the view in The Israel Lobby article by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt above with a very good analysis of the other end of the spectrum by Bassam Tibi. I wouldn’t want the young that read Werewolf and Scoop getting a bent view from only reading about one piece of the puzzle:

      Joe Blow: you seem to try and imply that Hamas “can not speak through John Pilger” who you also imply is “Gagging Hamas”.

      The facts are that Hamas are the universally, freely elected Government of all Palestinians: upon their landslide election they were immediately assaulted massively by the Jews in the “West Bank” which is the biggest concentration-camp into which the Jews have “herded” their very own Semitic flesh and blood to mass-murder them and thieve their land, whilst lying that their victims are so-called “terrorists” and of a so-called “different religeon”.

      It is an utter LIE. The “Muslims” are exactly the same “religeon” as the Jews and in actual fact are far more “Jewish” than nearly all Jews, because the “purist” Muslims all want a return to absolute obedience to the “Law Of Musa/Moshe” – or as his name is in the English language “Moses”.

      Musa/Moshe ordained the immediate death-penalty to anyone in Is-rael caught moneylending viz-a-viz Shylock.

      Muhammed in the Q’uran rails against the Jews for their moneylending again and again, and does the same about the way their merchants swindle people by the use of false weights and measures.

      Attempt to defend the Jews with all your might Joe Blow, the fact is that all they deserve is to be massively stomped on – like they did to Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Somalia to name only a few of their latest victims. And not to mention their vicious Mass-Murder-Spree’s in the Gaza and West Bank and everywhere else! The Zionists are vicious thieves, liars, and mass-murderers.

      Howdy Joe Blow. Every year in Jerusalem the Jews hold a massive parade led by rab-i’s who carry a “cornerstone” at the head of their procession.

      This is the “cornerstone” for the “New Temple”. The Zionists want a “new temple” built upon the ancient “Temple Mound” in Jerusalem and upon which stands the Al-Axa Mosque.

      Several years ago the Zionists held a massive “parade” again and the leaders of this “parade” tried to smash their way into the tomb of a Muslim Saint in the Temple Mound.

      The Islamic Palestinians went berserk (there are Christian Palestinians as well Joe Blow, but they are being hunted down and murdered by the Talmudists also: they will be coming for you and me if we do not get off our backs and start to fight these vicious, mass-murdering THUGS.

      Joe Blow, it is a fascinating situation viz-a-viz the “Temple Mount” because in order to be able to destroy the Al-Axa Mosque the Jews first have to conquer Syria and Iran.

      Joe Blow: just received an email from my ISP (“Woosh” – they are good Kiwi dudes, Southlanders!) saying they are distressed to have to announce that they are going to have increase their Internet Connection price.

      They are VERY careful to not say precisely why the price is being increased and instead they will only say (along with much apology) that it “is beyond our control”.

      What they mean Is Jewish-American Telecom has increased the “Lines Charges”. Joe Blow, New Zealand is a groveller to the Kikes, but nevertheless in this country there were some extremely alarmed “Tech’s” placing warnings on the Web about what was going to happen when the slimy John Key and Steven Joyce (Joe Blow, WHO actually is the REAL boss of the National Party?) handed our Broadband Network to Jewish Telecom.

      By handing the New Zealand Broadband Network (along with a nearly two-billion-dollar New Zealand Worker’s Tax-money donation as well)over to the Kikes (who have been in absolute control of the New Zealand Telecommunications Network from 1987 onwards, and to absolutely ruinous effect for the Working-Class people of this country) John Key and Steven Joyce have damned the Working-Class people of New Zealand to endless continuation of extortionate overcharging, unscrupulous “hidden fee” implementations, and abominably substandard “service”.

      The corporate mass-media, by the way, did not exactly “shout from the rooftops” something else John Key and Steven Joyce did: American Telecom and their siamese crony twin Vodafone (who has been “jointly”, with Telecom, given the new Broadband Network)have also been handed absolute exemption from Commerce Commission oversight for ten years. This means they can charge the most outrageous fee’s and swindle Working-Class New Zealanders all over the place year-in-and-year-out and no government (even if we ever got one with the will and the guts to try and protect the Working-Class people against the capitalist marauders)has any power to take any action because the contract that Key and Joyce handed to these vicious Thugs is sanctioned and recognized by the WTO.

      Well you never know Leon, if the Euro Zone falls apart and the US defaults and capitalism unravels at the seams then Joyce and Key will likely have no choice but to nationalise everything anyway… or another world war would soon create the environment whereby governments could start nationalising strategic assets again…

      The Jews deliberately make “economics” so infernally complicated throughout the Jewish-American Empire that only their top-bosses can actually comprehend how it operates, and in 2008 they, in a frenzy of greed, thieved forty-seven-trillion USA dollars out of the world economy.

      What more needs to be said.

      And Cam, that was not writ wrong – no shit, Forty-Seven-Trillion Dollars thieved by the Kikes.

      An Irish writer in the 1970′s described the United States of America as being an “utter obscenity” and an “abomination” because of the way it treated its horrendous multitudes of poverty-stricken people.

      What else is new?

      I don’t know Leon. The Greens sound mighty chummy with capitalism lately Leon. You heard about their “Green Wave” plan to create up to 81,000 jobs through building a new $6 billion to $8 billion export industry in renewable energy technology.

      Go capitalism! Go Green!

      Cannot believe how badly written nearly all of my posts are – wasn’t even drunk when writing them!

      That incoherent “reply” to Cam that was meant to be an explanation of how material problems can be solved through the political machinery (all you need is the correct political machinery/system of governance/economic/social policy) but for some reason that post completely lost it’s way.

      It was initially trying to say an important thing, so am going to write it here: when you get the right kind of Government, as in True Socialist Government, they create the Economic and Social Environment. Provide the populace with a safe living environment and decent standard of living (and guarantee it with a Constitution)and you will get overwhelmingly good morale amongst the Citizenry. In a True Socialist State, all people are involved in the political process.

      By operating the country as a giant Co-Operative the people are given a powerful sense of “ownership” of their country, and will take great pride in it. They will listen, and pay close attention to good ideas such as looking after and protecting the “natural” environment. The people will be highly educated due to excellent free education, and capable of being reasoned with. Education produces thoughtfulness and a desire to learn more, and to utilise the knowledge constructively.

      None of this is difficult in itself, but the problem is that any True Socialist Government, say in New Zealand/Aoteroa – will immediately induce enraged hostility from the Jews and their lackey USA “government” (Jew Glove-Puppet “Mr. Hopey-Changey” Obama) and be under constant threat, blockade, and infiltration/sabotage, and ultimately the threat of invasion. Invasion to “Provide New Zealand With Freedom And Democracy”, which is always their ludicrous, hackneyed pretext.
