Le maréchal Haftar dirige les forces armées des autorités de l’est du pays, rivales du GNA, gouvernement adoubé par l’ONU et installé à Tripoli (ouest). Toutefois, malgré les violents combats qui opposent différentes factions armées en Libye, la production du pétrole, principale ressource du pays, a fait un bond significatif.

What happened? Qu’est ce qui s‘est passé?

For instance, in Iran. As it was recorded, the rogue states  United States  and United Kingdom  destroyed the Iranian democracy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… ) and planted the seeds of the Islamic Revolution. True, the Shah was not good for the country but the Islamic regime is even worse. Iran belongs among the civilized countries of the world. I just think we should be honest and always remember when, how and by whom Iran was kicked out of that club.

The revolutionary regime of Iran means 37 years of stoning adulterers, amputation of limbs, criminalizing all music types except classical, 100 lashes for drinking alcohol. But the rogue states will never learn from their history because oil and money come comes but as people are far we can built walls and protect ourselves from tha chaos we have created.

Video: Croatian MP, Ivan Pernar, delivers powerful speech on Syria, Libya and why Croatia should never have joined NATO (EN/FR)


With over a 1.5 million views of the video of his speech, newly elected Croatian MP Ivan Pernar has become a star for anti-establishment activists around the Balkan region.

Criticized as pro-russian or even populist,  Pernar, 31, a first-time MP from the opposition anti-establishment Living Wall – a party born out of a movement formed to stop seizures of homes – told BIRN that his appearance is not the primary cause for the popularity of the video, but “hunger among people for the truth”.

Even if we don’t agree with all his points of view, its worth sharing.

In 2011, he was a founder of the Alliance for Change, a party that later transformed itself into Living Wall. This earned its reputation by defying the police when they enforced evictions of people from their homes, as a result of which Pernar was arrested a few times.

He went onto criticize Croatia’s role as a NATO member and highlighted how old Croatian weapons from the wars that broke up Yugoslavia ended up in the hands of jihadists in Syria.

According to Vecernji list, ever since he entered Parliament, Ivan Pernar has turned into one of the most famous politicians both in the country and abroad. The newspaper reports that Pernar gave an interview to the Russian Sputnik agency, in which he spoke of NATO, Russia, and the USA, qualifying NATO as “a threat to the entire world, just like Germany under Hitler”.

Français:

En totalisant plus de 1,5 million de vues, la vidéo de son discours au Parlement Croatian, Ivan Pernar, qui a été récemment élu député, est devenu une star pour les militants au contre-pouvoir dans la région des Balkans.

Critiqué comme étant pro-Russe ou même populiste, Ivan, élu pour la première fois au Parlement et faisant partie de l’opposition contre-pouvor au sein du parti Zivi Zid (Mur Vivant) n’a pas su mâcher ses mots. Zivi Zid, a été créé en 2011 ayant pour but d’arrêter les saisies de maisons en Croatie.Pour cette raision, Pernar a été arrêté à plusieurs reprises.

Il a déclaré sur BIRN (Balkan Insight.com) qu’il lui semblait que son apparition n’est pas la cause principale pour la popularité de cette vidéo mais “la soif de vérité chez le peuple”.

Sur la vidéo, Pernar, il critique sevèrement le rôle de la Croatie en tant que membre de l’OTAN en soulignant comment des vieilles armes croates de la guerre qui a éclaté en Yougoslavie ont fini dans les mains des djihadistes en Syrie.

Selon le journal Vecernji list, depuis qu’il est entré au Parlement, Ivan Pernar est devenu l’un des plus célèbres hommes politiques Croates  en Croatie et à l’étranger à la fois. Le journal rapporte que Pernar a donné une interview à l’agence Sputnik russe, dans laquelle il a parlé de l’OTAN, la Russie et les Etats-Unis, qualifiant l’OTAN comme «une menace pour le monde entier, tout comme l’Allemagne sous Hitler”.

Foreign Policy Diary – Libya’s Instability Threatens Regional Security


Though Syria and Iraq are the main theaters of global standoff and terrorist activity in recent years, there is another country that also draws the attention of the world powers: #Libya. Since the fall of Muammar Gadhafi in 2011, the war-torn country has been in a constant crisis fueled by the West’s inability to implement any kind of a peace settlement involving a wide range of competing entities operating in the country.
