# INTRODUCTION TO THE NEW EDITION 2013.
LIBYA 2003-2011, FROM COLD WAR TO IMPERIALIST AGGRESSION:
LOST ILLUSIONS OF THE PACIFIC COEXISTENCE
 
In 2003, first for PCN-NCP’S DAILY NEWS – which devoted in special edition "LIBYA AT THE CROSSROADS" (1) five issues to the return of Libya on the international scene – then taken by LIBYA NEWS & FACTS (Bulletin of CEREDD) and ALZZAHF ALAKHDER ("The Green March", the daily of the Libyan RCM in Tripoli, Libya) – I published under the title“LIBYA BETWEEN WAR THREATS AND IMPERIALIST BLACKMAIL" a lengthy analysis of the geopolitical choices of the Libyan Jamahiriya and the geopolitical context in which they were developed in the years 1998-2003.
 
If it lacks, of course, conclusion and destruction of the Jamahiriya in 2011 (2), I explained since 2003 why the "peaceful coexistence" between Gaddafi and the West could only be a set of dupes for the Libyan Leader (3) (4). Tripoli was indeed on the path of U.S. imperialism in Africa and the Mediterranean, but also in Europe. I explaned also, unpublished moreover, the Euro-African geopolitical vision of Gaddafi. There also the Libyan Leader’s project could only meet the hostility of the United States and its armed arm NATO. Not to mention the appetites of France.
 
GADDAFI’S GEOPOLITICAL THESES
 
Theses geopolitical theses of Libya of the Years 2000-2011, I knew them well, for I had brought them to Libya in the mid 90's. The "Congress of Polish geopoliticians" in 2010 also focused its attention long about it, hidden in Western Europe, but analyzed in the East (5).
 
"If you know sometimes Gaddafi  as a wise of Africa, guiding the Continent in the line of Nkrumah to its pan-African destiny, too often is ignored that other facet of the personality of the guide of the Libyan revolution: Gaddafi the European , one of the staunchest supporter of European unification and its currency with the Euro. "I wrote in 2003. For Gaddafi knew that imperialism has no potential enemy more dangerous than Europe. And therefore has been constantly promoting the return to this millennium unity and make his Libya a bridge between Africa and Europe. The African Unity, which Gaddafi's Libya was the ambassador in the Mediterranean, was intended to converge with the European unification.
 
Gaddafi's geopolitical vision culminated in the Years 2007-2010. In October 2010, I analyzed the geopolitical position taken by the Jamahiriya "The EU-Africa Summit held in Sirte / Tripoli on 29 November 2010 marks the centrality of Libya both polical as a driver of African Union – which Moammar Gadhafi was the main initiator – and geopolitical as a bridge between the European Union and the African Union. The central role played by the dialogue of cultures is also the response proposed by Libya to the war theses of the "clash of civilizations" (…) The vision of Libya as a bridge between Europe and the African Union, we were the first to develop in the early 90s, is now widely accepted and adopted by the major players in the African and European Unions. Note on this official logo adopted by the European Commission in Brussels, for the cultural project of cooperation between the EU and the African Union "Visionary Africa", showing the dimensions of the Eurasian map of Greater Europe including Russia (6).
 
THE WAR AGAINST LIBYA IS ABOVE ALL A WAR AGAINST EUROPE
 
The aggression against the Jamahiriya, planned in November 2010, by the U.S., NATO and France again Atlanticist with Sarkozy, will put an abrupt end to these projects of peace and cooperation. This "outstretched hand, which opened the way to a Mediterranean area more fraternal and with solidarity", it was criminal to refuse it.
 
And the war against the Jamahiriya such as those against Afghanistan and Iraq, is first and foremost a "war against Greater Europe", in the words of General Von Lohausen, the German geopolitician friend of Jean Thiriart (7) . A war waged by "European" employees of Washington, NATO politicians and its political appendix, the pseudo EU. An EU which has exchanged a peaceful project for a geopolitical chaotic and destabilizing environment, which benefits only Washington, Tel Aviv and their "Arab" allies and a few multinationals.
 
TWO CONFLICTING VISIONS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SPACE
 
But from the start what else to expect from EU politicians, those of the "American party" in Europe?
In October 2007, at the forum of WGBS (8) in Tripoli in the auditorium of the General People's Congress (the Libyan parliament, burned at the end of February 2011 by NTC jihadists), before 2,000 delegates from five continents, I explained in my speech on behalf of the European delegations (9), the finding of ideological divorce between Gaddafi and EU politicians: "We welcome Gaddafi also as a great European who has always supported the unification and emancipation of the European continent, in which he sees an essential element of a multipolar world, free from imperialist domination. And whose pioneering vision already associated African and European unities. In this vision, Gaddafi designs Libya as a bridge between Africa and Europe. We must emphasize how much this view is different from the Atlanticist politicians of the European Union who, themselves, do not build bridges, but stand the walls of a fortress. '
  
I reminded cruelly how the speech in Brussels and Strasbourg on the "open European society" does not match the reality of the Fortress Europe: "in Brussels or Strasbourg, these arrogant politicians give lessons to the world. "Human rights, freedom of movement, freedom" they tell us. But in reality it is the walls of a fortress they stand! Schengen wall that in the East that cuts Europe in two. Barbed wire of Schengen also at the border between Morocco and Spain. And even within the European Union, two-tier citizenship. Complete for the countries of the old EU. Limited rights for Bulgarians, Romanians or Poles …
Shameful treatment of European peoples categorized into superior peoples rights and peoples who are denied the same rights. Between 1933 and 1945, under the Nazi Reich there was nothing else. But we said more bluntly … "People of Lords" and "sub-human slaves!" '
 
Finally, I opposed the Mediterranean vision of Gaddafi and that of the EU: "The EU will also make the Mediterranean a border, one more! The "Barcelona Process" or "Euro-Mediterranean partnership", which Libya has refused to participate, have no other meaning. Given this vision, there is that of Moamer Kadhafi. Who sees the Mediterranean as a place of culture, sharing, exchange. Again Gadhafi has memory of the past. When the Mediterranean was one. Libya, which also remembers its Roman past, who knows Leptis Magna gave the Roman emperors of the dynasty of Severus. European politicians have also forgotten! Yes, we European activists, we prefer to follow and listen to Gaddafi, who wants to build bridges to unite, than politicians of the European Union, who build walls to separate! '
 
 
The response of NATO, the EU, and Washington, to the geopolitical and ideological challenge posed by Gaddafi, who defined himself as "an opponant to the World Order," will be the imperialist war, first the coup of 15-16 February 2011, and its transformation into a war of aggression disguised as a civil war.
 
The refusal of dialogue proposed by Gaddafi benefits only true enemies of Europe. Who were and still are also the enemies of Libya. "In this context, the irresponsible policy of the French government, conducted on behalf of the interests of foreign lobbies is not a fault, but a crime," I concluded already in 2003. Need we say more?!

(2) I have not been the least one to announce, in Libya (where I was for the "6th European Convention of MEDD," the pan-European network of the  Libyan RCM held in Zawiah near Tripoli , 5-6-7 February 2011), from the early days of February 2011 the imperialist aggression announced against Tripoli (and Damascus). I was the only one among all the analysts and commentators to understand what is happening and take the exact measure of the event. At a time when all analysts let themselves to believe in the pseudo "Arab Spring." Starting with the so-called journalists "not mainstream" shouting haro in February-March 2011 on Gaddafi as the imperialist storm rose on the Gulf of Sirte.
Cf. PCN-TV, "The Arab world is on fire": Interview in French Luc MICHEL for PCN-TV, the so-called "Arab revolutions" (Tripoli, February 7, 2011).
VERBATIM in English on the Website THE JAMAHIRIYAN RESISTANCE NETWORK:
 
(3) In another analysis, I came back from 2003 on the reasons that lead – and led in 2011-2012 – to the inevitable clash between the U.S. and the Arab revolutionary regimes.
Cf. Luc MICHEL, AMERICANO-ZIONIST AGGRESSION IS AN IDEOLOGICAL WAR AGAINST THE ARAB NATIONALISM: AFTER BAGHDAD, DAMASCUS AND TRIPOLI ARE IN LINE OF SIGHT! (2003),
 
(4) In the confidence trick of peaceful coexistence between the West and its enemies
See my analyzes of socialist reforms in the USSR, Yugoslavia, Belarus, Libya, Ba'athist Iraq and Syria.
See especially: International conference "The prospects of the Eastern partnership" – Minsk 05.05.2011:
Conference of Luc MICHEL (PART.1 – 2) recovery on PCN-TV, on "Model of Belarus as an alternative to globalization" (where I mention longly the peaceful coexistence in Libya);
 
(5) The "3rd Congress of Polish geopoliticians" – III Zjazd Geopolityków Polskich – held in Wroclaw (Poland, 21 and 22 October 2010) was the opportunity for a brilliant intervention of Kornel Sawinski entitled "Znaczenie LIBII w geopolitycznych koncepcjach Nacjonal-Europejskiej Partii Komunitarnej (PCN) "," Libya in the geopolitical concepts of NCP-NCP. "
Geopolitical, sociologist, an analyst at the " Europejskiego Centrum Analiz Geopolitycznych" Sawinski is the Uniwersytetu Śląskiego PhD – University of Silesia – he prepares a thesis on "The geopolitical ideas of Jean Thiriart."
The geopolitician and Polish researcher develops at length in "Libya in the geopolitical concepts of PCN-NCP" the general transnational action of the  PCN-NCP and mine for over 25 years, amplified and continued in that of  MEDD-RCM (the pan-European network of the Libyan RMC, remained organized in Europe). And its roots in the work of the pan-European leader and theorist Jean THIRIART in the 60s. He outlines the important and influential role played by the transnational Organisation of the PCN-NCP as a school of thought and "think tank" (as understood by the Anglo-Saxons).
Finally, he reaches the heart of his presentation: the ties with the Libyan Jamahiriya, the proximity of Muammar Gaddafi's geopolitical theories with mine (in 2004 I became the Coordinator-General of RCM in Europe) and the PCN-NCP on the Eurasian Greater Europe, the necessary emergence of a multipolar world, the Mediterranean conceived as a place of common civilization, or the role of Bridge of Libya between the European and African Unions.
Sawinski finally evokes the theme of Direct Democracy (in its Libyan and European versions), the role it plays in my mind and that of MEDD-RCM as a fundamental alternative to bourgeois parliamentarism.
The Polish version of the conference – with French and English summaries, has been the subject of an issue of LIBYA NEWS & FACTS (No. 2054, November 17, 2010), the Bulletin of CEREDD;

(7) Austrian General and geopolitical scientist Lohausen (1907-2002), former member of the General Staff of Marshal Rommel, close to the anti-Nazi patriots of 20 July 1944, is part of the result of the geopolitical theories of Jean Thiriart "Europe from Vladivostok to Dublin." He wrote glowing pages on the European draft of Thiriart the Years 1960-1975.
The general's main book of geopolitics MUT ZUR MACHT. DENKEN IN KONTINENTEN, translated for the story in French by one of the secretaries of THIRIART, is part of the School of HAUSOFER, but also incorporates many concepts of THIRIART. Lohausen in particular speaks of "Europe from Madrid to Vladivostok." In the copy offered by Lohausen to Thiriart in 1983 (which I got with his library in 1999) is the following dedication: "In respectful tribute to a great European."
 
(8) WGBS acronym for the Worl Green Book Supporters Association, which united supporters of the Direct Democracy in Libya.

I borrowed my title "Thinking Continents" in the French version of the German book of geopolitics "Mut zur Macht. Denken in Kontinenten "of General Jordis Von Lohausen.
