The El Paso Diary is written by José Pertierra--an attorney who represents the government of Venezuela in its request for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles. Pertierra´s journals describe the testimony, evidence, legal skirmishes, quirks and follies of this very historic trial that features for the first time the close collaboration of the United States government with Cuban authorities to prosecute an ex CIA agent who is one of the masterminds of the fifty-year old dirty war against Cuba.

Articles of Muammar al-Gaddafi
“As some may be aware, in September of 1969, Muammar al-Gaddafi, an Arab Bedouin soldier of a peculiar character and inspired by the ideas of the Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser, promoted in the heart of the armed forces a movement overthrowing King Idris I of Libya, a country almost completely covered by desert and having very little population, located in northern Africa between Tunisia and Egypt.”
“One can agree with Gaddafi or not. The world has been invaded with all kinds of news, especially using the mass media. One has to wait the necessary length of time in order to learn precisely what is the truth and what are lies, or a mixture of events of every kind that, in the midst of chaos, were produced in Libya. For me, what is absolutely clear is that the government of the United States is not in the least worried about peace in Libya and it will not hesitate in giving NATO the order to invade that rich country, perhaps in a matter of hours or a few short days.”
That brutal military alliance has become the most perfidious instrument of repression known in the history of humankind. NATO took on that global repressive role as soon as the USSR, which had served the United States as an excuse for its creation, ceased to exist. Its criminal purpose became obvious in Serbia, a Slavic country, whose people had so heroically fought against Nazi troops in WW II.
Enough about The Big G’s downfall. Now comes the real nitty-gritty; Afghanistan 2.0, Iraq 2.0, or a mix of both. The “NATO rebels” have always made sure they don’t want foreign occupation. But the North Atlantic Treaty Organization – which made the victory possible – can’t control Libya without boots on the ground. So multiple scenarios are now being gamed in NATO’s headquarters in Mons, Belgium – under a United Nations velvet cushion.
The fearless stance adopted by tribes in Bani Walid forced rebel leaders on Tuesday to step up negotiations for a peaceful surrender, amid contradictory reports on troop movements in southern Libya. The main stronghold of forces loyal to leader Muammar Gaddafi continued to be besieged by the NATO-backed rebels of the National Transitional Council (CNT), but was reluctant to surrender, as was the case in Sirte.
poradic combats and contradictory reports over the situation of leader Muammar Gaddafi keep the country’s fate uncertain, while Libyans wait expectantly for a conference that is taking place in Paris, attended by the alleged friends of this country. Spokespersons of the rebels noted that clashes are taking place in Tripoli and other areas away from the city between the opposition and forces loyal to Gaddafi, who is said to be in the city of Bani Walid.
Libyan rebels has set a deadline up to Saturday for Sirte to surrender. Muammar Gaddafi’s hometown has been suffering intense NATO air raids in the past hours to weaken its resistance. Spokespersons of the insurgents say that negotiations continue, but have not been able to break the will of the tribal leaders of Sirte, so they are likely to unleash a terrible 10-day battle.
Whilst mainstream news sources portray the war in Libya as a revolution and rebel victory, journalists on the ground in Libya’s capital, Tripoli, paint a very different and bleak picture. Dr. Franklin Lamb, an observer and writer, provides a clear and uncensored account of the war in Libya in his latest article entitled “Tripoli Port notes”.
Elite soldiers of the British and French special forces took part on Friday, together with Libyan rebels, on the assault on Sirte, the birthplace of Muammar Gaddafi, a town located 360 Kilometers east of Tripoli, The Guardian daily reports Friday. The British and French military are playing a leadership roll not only guiding the opposing forces to Gaddafi, but also planning the offensive, adds the London-based newspaper that quoted insurgent officer Mohammed Subka.

Opposition sources say one of their key targets now is Gaddafi’s hometown of Sirte, about 250 miles (400 kilometers) from Tripoli, but acknowledged that capturing that
