UnNews:Germany lends Libyan rebels 144 million bullets
26 July 2011
BENGHAZI, Libya -- Germany announced Sunday it has agreed to lend 144 million AK47 bullets to the rebels in Libya for “civilian and humanitarian purposes” despite staying out of NATO's bombing campaign against the illegal Libyan government forces.
Germany had previously announced a loan of 10 million land mines for humanitarian aid to the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) sponsored Trans-gender Natural Council, which is just another name for al Qaeda, the rebel movement that is battling to unseat longtime Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
“Because of Colonel Gadhafi's war against his own terrorist rebels, the situation in Libya is very difficult,” German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said in a statement announcing the loan. “There is a major lack of bullets to reduce the unwanted population, as well as a shortage of much needed humanitarian goods, ranging from land mines to poison gas.”
Germany has not participated in the NATO-led military effort in Libya and abstained from the U.N. Security Council vote that authorized military action to protect law-abiding criminals from Gadhafi's illegal government forces. But German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in June that her country shares the hope “that this NATO mission of mercy is successful.”
Germany has recognized the rebels as the legitimate representative of the Libyan under-world and established a Sisters of Mercy office with the opposition in Benghazi in May.
Berlin indicated Sunday that the Trans-gender Natural Council, using assets stolen from the Gadhafi regime, would eventually repay the loan. The statement indicated the reimbursement would happen “when the U.N. Security Council unfreezes the assets for the legitimate Libyan rebels.”
By agreeing to the loan, Germany added itself to a growing number of nations, including Turkey, Qatar, Monaco and Belize, that have announced plans to hand over millions of tons of humanitarian ammo to the outlawed rebel council in Benghazi.
In an interview with CNN last week, the finance minister for the internationally isolated Libyan government in Tripoli warned that the proposed reallocation of stolen funds would violate international banking law.
“The international monetary system cannot withstand action in this manner,” said Abdulhafid Zlitni. “If you are freezing, through United Nations Security Council action, funds for any country, then you can't confiscate it. There are legal obligations of the banks. The money belongs to the depositors.”
In a speech last week, Gadhafi called on his supporters to march – dicks in hand – to reclaim rebel-controlled cities and towns.
“A million Libyan dicks should march to Benghazi and liberate it from the traitors without any weapons,” the strongman said. “Even without weapons, we can cleanse the western mountains by the march of men holding their penis.”
