In the recent days, some Western media reported that “Gaddafi regime staked $20 billion on secret deal in bid to open peace talks ” They said: “The Libyan regime has been negotiating a secret deal with Greece to use $20bn of its funds that are frozen abroad for initiating peace talks (i.e. keeping Gaddafi regime safe). Talks were held in Tripoli between a team led by a former diplomat close to the Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou and regime members including the Libyan Prime Minister Al-Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi . Those involved in the negotiations also claim that some officials from the US were aware of the talks taking place for using unfrozen funds for aid, but have refrained from making public comments due to French sensitivities.” An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 people have been killed in four months of fighting in Libya, according to a UN panel. And now the savage Gaddafi, who killed thousands of Libyans, tries to bribe the West for saving himself.
The opposition leaders in Misrata feel prepared for battle but say they have been told not to cross certain ‘red lines’. The stupid NATO urges not to launch further pushes against Gaddafi troops to the east of the city, while the opposition leaders believe that Gaddafi’s troops are demoralised and depleted after nearly three months of conflict. It can be a sign of the effect of “$20 billion” bribe ! “The red line, we cannot cross,” an opposition leader said. “ If we get the order from Nato we can go. We can capture Tarhuga (a town to the east) in two hours. We should move, we want to move. But Nato told us we must stay here .”
When Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou negotiates with Gaddafi for peace, i.e. a secret deal about $20 billion, it’s a bit like the pot calling the kettle black. The Greek protesters know what this mean.
