The Beirut Barracks Bombings (October 23, 1983, in Beirut, Lebanon) occurred during the Lebanese Civil War when two truck bombs struck separate buildings housing United States and French military forces—members of the Multinational Force (MNF) in Lebanon—killing 299 American and French servicemen. An obscure group calling itself 'Islamic Jihad' claimed responsibility for the bombings.[1] ... At around 06:22, a 19-ton yellow Mercedes-Benz stake-bed truck drove to the Beirut International Airport (BIA), where the U.S. 24th Marine Amphibious Unit (MAU) was deployed.

Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi (c. 1942 – 20 October 2011), commonly known as Colonel Gaddafi, was a Libyan revolutionary and politician, and the de facto ruler of Libya for 42 years. Taking power in a 1969 coup d'etat, he ruled as Revolutionary Chairman of the Libyan Arab Republic from 1969 to 1977 and then as the "Brotherly Leader" of the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya from 1977 to 2011, when he was ousted in the Libyan civil war. After beginning as an Arab nationalist and Arab socialist, he later governed the country according to his own ideology, the Third International Theory. He eventually embraced Pan-Africanism, and served as Chairperson of the African Union from 2009 to 2010.

The son of an impoverished Bedouin goat herder, Gaddafi became involved in politics while at school in Sabha, subsequently enrolling in the Royal Military Academy, Benghazi. Founding a revolutionary cell within the military, in 1969 they seized power from King Idris in a bloodless coup. Becoming Chairman of the governing Revolutionary Command Council (RCC), he dissolved the monarchy and proclaimed the Republic. Ruling by decree, he implemented measures to remove what he viewed as foreign imperialist influence from Libya, and strengthened ties to Arab nationalist governments. Intent on pushing Libya toward "Islamic socialism", he introduced sharia as the basis for the legal system and nationalized the oil industry, using the increased revenues to bolster the military, implement social programs and fund revolutionary militants across the world. In 1973 he initiated a "Popular Revolution" with the formation of General People's Committees (GPCs), a system of direct democracy, but retained personal control over major decisions. He outlined his Third International Theory that year, publishing these ideas in The Green Book.

In 1977, he dissolved the Republic and created the Jamahiriya, a "state of the masses" part-governed by GPCs. Officially adopting a symbolic role in governance, he retained power as military commander-in-chief and head of the Revolutionary Committees responsible for policing and suppressing opponents. Overseeing unsuccessful border conflicts with Egypt and Chad, Gaddafi's support for foreign militants and alleged responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing led to Libya's label of "international pariah". A particularly hostile relationship developed with the United States and United Kingdom, resulting in the 1986 U.S. bombing of Libya and United Nations-imposed economic sanctions. From 1999, Gaddafi encouraged economic privatization, pan-African integration, and sought better relations with the West. In 2011, an anti-Gaddafist uprising led by the National Transitional Council (NTC) broke out, resulting in civil war. NATO intervened militarily on the side of the NTC, resulting in the government's downfall. Retreating to Sirte, Gaddafi was captured and killed by NTC militants.

Gaddafi was a controversial and highly divisive world figure. Supporters lauded his anti-imperialist stance and his support for pan-Africanism and pan-Arabism, and he was decorated with various awards. Conversely, he was internationally condemned as a dictator and autocrat whose authoritarian administration violated the human rights of Libyan citizens, and supported irredentist movements, tribal warfare and terrorism in many other nations.

From Peoples Republic (PROC): "In 1988 I was 9 years old. Maggie Thatcher was still at the helm in the UK. The Lockerbie bombing shocked us all, and Derrick May released 'Nude Photo', signalling the birth of techno and a new movement in youth culture: dance music. Around this time a young (ish) Dublin DJ named Greg Dowling arrived in Cork. Bemused by the innocent young Corkonians skankin' it away harmlessly to their Reggae, Greg decided to start up a night on Thursday nights in Reds, playing some of the emerging electronic music. It soon shifted residence to Sir Henrys on South Main St. Greg was joined about a year later by Shane Johnson, and they continued the club in the same venue until Saturday the 3rd of November 2001, its 13th birthday.

To say that Saturday nights at Sweat meant a lot to people would be understating the matter somewhat. Sweat was, to many of us, a huge part of our young lives. Queuing up religiously at 11.30, and when you got in, hearing that deep, soulful kick drum blasting away at 120 bpm; I find it hard not to get a teensy bit emotional reminiscing over the whole routine. Dubby basslines, dirty shoes, jazz chords, soaring vocals, the stage, funky congas, Fender Rhodes, facing the DJ box like an altar, the muck, the darkness, and of course the sweat. As it ended so has a very real Cork institution. The Cork music scene owes a huge debt to Sweat. The unwavering solidity of Greg and Shane in pushing the deep house music sound that they believed in forward has rubbed off on many other Cork DJ's and bands.

People didn't go to Sweat, as some people may have you believe, just to take drugs. People went there for the music and the atmosphere it created. I can often remember standing in the middle of the dancefloor, the crowd cheering as a Saxophone came in, or singing along to the melody of some obscure one-sided white label, and saying to myself that there was nowhere else like this on the planet.

I've heard great musicians, great DJ's, great records, and still I always come back to Greg and Shane; be it on the radio or in the club. In my bedroom my house records sit proudly alongside my John Coltrane and Curtis Mayfield collection. No greater compliment could be paid to the music and influence of Sweat. I could start to speculate on the reasons for the club's demise, and I am sure many of you have already heard some, but I will just finish by saying thanks. Thanks to Greg and Shane for some of the best nights of my life.

This short article is copied entirely below. Or feel free to follow the link.

In his recent column titled “‘New Atheist’ liberals justify Islamophobia with rhetoric,” José Sanchez attempts to smear the leaders of the New Atheist movement. His commentary falsely states, “The New Atheists’ bludgeoning of religion seems to focus only on Islam.” Sanchez is apparently unfamiliar with the work of Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, et al. All three men and others like Bill Maher criticize all religions and their holy texts with equal fervor and profess to do as much. They are as swift to denounce Christianity as they are to denounce Islam. A quick search of the Internet will confirm this. However, Sam Harris does note that radical Islamists present a distinct threat to the Western way of life: “Religions differ, and their specific differences matter. And the truth is that Islam has doctrines regarding jihad, martyrdom, apostasy, etc., that pose a special problem to the civilized world at this moment in history.” This is quite a reasonable assertion considering the numerous violent and evil acts perpetrated by Islamists in the West (e.g. 9/11, the 2004/2005 bombings in Madrid and London, the Lockerbie Bombing, the 2009 Fort Hood shooting, etc.). 
Radical extremists seek to silence critics of Islam, like New Atheist Salman Rushdie, through means such as a fatwa issued for his execution by the Supreme Leader of Iran. Many also expressed disdain for freedom of speech, a key element of Western democracy, by protesting, attempting to take legal action and, in some cases rioting, when in 2006 a Danish cartoonist depicted the Prophet Muhammad, which is considered blasphemy to many of the Islamic faith. Now, to be clear, as Harris and Maher stated on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the vast majority of the 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide are kind, peace-loving people who are invaluable to their communities. Despite this, radical Islam is still a dangerous specter that must be approached with both condemnation and caution. New Atheists are critical of the ideas that Islam promotes, not the people that follow its doctrines. It is also curious to point out that New Atheists “selectively quote the Qur’an.” If it is a perfect book that communicates the exact word of God, should not all of its verses adequately represent the tenets of the faith?
Sanchez also implies that the New Atheists are mainly condescending white males criticizing people of color because they are white supremacists. This is simply unfounded and ridiculous. He neglects to mention people like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Jennifer Hecht, Susan Jacoby and Rushdie, who promote rational thought based upon the principles of science and the philosophy of Western liberalism, as opposed to the demands and threats of the jealous and totalitarian God that we see in the holy texts of the three Abrahamic faiths.

It is said that Gaddafi’s Libya was Africa’s most prosperous democracy - so what was the cause of his downfall?

Libya , which western media described as “Gaddafi’s military dictatorship” was arguably also a successful direct democratic State.

The history of Libya under Muammar Gaddafi spanned a period of over four decades from 1969 to 2011. Gaddafi became the de facto leader of the country on 1 September 1969 after leading a group of young Libyan military officers against King Idris I in a bloodless coup d'état.

After the king had fled the country, the Libyan Revolutionary Command Council (RCC) headed by Gaddafi abolished the monarchy and the old constitution and proclaimed the new Libyan African Republic, with the motto "freedom, socialism, and unity".

According to Garikai Chengu, a fellow of the Du Bois Institute for African Research at Harvard University - Muammar Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa. 

However, by the time he was assassinated, Libya was unquestionably one of Africa‘s most prosperous nations. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy in Africa and less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands. 

Libyans did not only enjoy free health care and free education, they also enjoyed free electricity and interest free loans. The price of petrol was around $0.14 per liter and 40 loaves of bread cost just $0.15. Consequently, the UN designated Libya the 53rd highest in the world in human development.

The "remaking of Libyan society" contained in Gaddafi's ideological visions began to be put into practice formally beginning in 1973 with a so-called cultural or popular revolution. This revolution was designed to combat bureaucratic inefficiency, lack of public interest and participation in the subnational governmental system, and problems of national political coordination.

In an attempt to instill revolutionary fervor into his compatriots and to involve large numbers of them in political affairs, Gaddafi urged them to challenge traditional authority and to take over and run government organs themselves. 

In the scope of their administrative and regulatory tasks and the method of their members' selection, the people's committees purportedly embodied the concept of direct democracy that Gaddafi propounded in the first volume of The Green Book, which appeared in 1976.

The same concept lay behind proposals to create a new political structure composed of "people's congresses." The centerpiece of the new system was the General People's Congress (GPC), a national representative body intended to replace the RCC.

Following the formation of the Libyan Arab Republic (at which time Gaddafi was designated leader), Gaddafi and his associates insisted that their government would not rest on individual leadership, but rather on collegial decision making.

In 1977 Libya formally adopted what Gaddafi called the "Jamahiriya" system - nominally a Direct Democracy without any political parties governed by its populace through local popular councils and communes (named Basic People's Congresses) - with Gaddafi as permanent leader.

The instrument for Direct Democracy was the people's committee. Within a few months, such committees were found all across Libya. They were functionally and geographically based and eventually became responsible for local and regional administration.

People's committees were established in such widely divergent organizations as universities, private business firms, government bureaucracies, and the broadcast media. Geographically based committees were formed at the governorate, municipal, and zone (lowest) levels. Seats on the people's committees at the zone level were filled by direct popular election; members so elected could then be selected for service at higher levels. By mid-1973 estimates of the number of people's committees ranged above 2,000.

After coming to power, the RCC government initiated a process of directing funds toward providing education, health care and housing for all. 

Despite the reforms not being entirely effective, public education in the country became free and primary education compulsory for both sexes. Medical care became available to the public at no cost. Though a goal of providing housing for all was a task the RCC government (and Basic Peoples' Congresses) set, it was one that it was not able to complete. 

The government also built a trans-Sahara water pipeline from major aquifers to both a network of reservoirs and the towns of Tripoli, Sirte and Benghazi in 2006–2007, ending the city's water shortages, caused by the rising urban population.

Gaddafi's efforts also improved the average health of Libyans. In 2009, the CIA's World Factbook showed the average life expectancy of a Libyan to be 77 years (only one year less than that of an American citizen).

Under Gaddafi, per capita income in the country rose to more than US $11,000, the fifth highest in Africa. 

The increase in prosperity was accompanied by a controversial foreign policy, with increased political repression at home.

Remaking of the economy was parallel with the attempt to remold political and social institutions. Until the late 1970s, Libya's economy was mixed, with a large role for private enterprise except in the fields of oil production and distribution, banking, and insurance.

But according to volume two of Gaddafi's Green Book, which appeared in 1978, private retail trade, rent, and wages were forms of "exploitation" that should be abolished. Instead, workers' self-management committees and profit participation partnerships were to function in public and private enterprises.

A property law was passed that forbade ownership of more than one private dwelling, and Libyan workers took control of a large number of companies, turning them into state-run enterprises.

Retail and wholesale trading operations were replaced by state-owned "people's supermarkets", where Libyans in theory could purchase whatever they needed at low prices. By 1981 the state had also restricted access to individual bank accounts to draw upon privately held funds for government projects.

Not surprisingly, the measures created resentment and opposition among the newly dispossessed. The latter joined those already alienated, some of whom had begun to leave the country.

By 1982, perhaps 50,000 to 100,000 Libyans had gone abroad; because many of the emigrants were among the enterprising and better educated Libyans, they represented a significant loss of managerial and technical expertise.

However, Gaddafi's foreign policies and international relations also created great controversy.

Given the socio-economic success of the Gaddafi regime within Libya; and the existence of a direct democracy in Libya - why did the Libyan civil war occur in 2011? 

It is certainly possible that there was a large body of dissatisfied Libyans. Although they had an opportunity for a direct say in their governance - a situation that would be envied by the citizens of many states - it is arguable whether this was truly direct democracy - particularly as Gaddafi maintained dictatorship powers.

Those dispossessed of material belongings would have also been angry.

Throughout his long rule, Gaddafi had to defend his position against opposition and coup attempts, emerging both from the military and from the general population. He reacted to these threats on one hand by maintaining a careful balance of power between the forces in the country, and by brutal repression on the other. 

Although nominally a direct democracy, dissent was officially illegal. Surveillance took place in government, in factories and in the education sector. Censorship was rife.

Gaddafi employed his network of diplomats and recruits to assassinate dozens of his critics around the world. Amnesty International listed at least twenty-five assassinations between 1980 and 1987.

As of 2004, Libya still provided bounties for heads of critics, including 1 million dollars for Ashur Shamis, a Libyan-British journalist.

Gaddafi's agents were active in the U.K., where many Libyans had sought asylum. After Libyan diplomats shot at 15 anti-Gaddafi protesters from inside the Libyan embassy's first floor and killed a British policewoman, the U.K. broke off relations with Gaddafi's government as a result of the incident.

There is indication that between the years of 2002 and 2007, Libya's Gaddafi-era intelligence service had a partnership with western spy organizations including MI6 and the CIA, who voluntarily provided information on Libyan dissidents in the United States and Canada in exchange for using Libya as a base for extraordinary renditions. This was done despite Libya's history of murdering dissidents abroad, and with full knowledge of Libya's brutal mistreatment of detainees.

During the 1980s and 1990s, Gaddafi openly supported rebel movements like Nelson Mandela's African National Congress, the Palestine Liberation Organization, the Irish Republican Army and the Polisario Front (Western Sahara), which led to a deterioration of Libya's foreign relations with several countries and that culminated in the US bombing of Libya in 1986. After the 9/11 attacks, however, the relations were mostly normalised. 

Gaddafi created the Islamic Legion to unify and Arabize the region (including Chad and the Sudan). He waged a campaign against Chad and Egypt. He was active in politics within Africa. His strong military support and finances gained him allies across the continent. He had himself crowned with the title "King of Kings of Africa" in 2008, in the presence of over 200 African traditional rulers and kings, although his views on African political and military unification received a lukewarm response from their governments. 

On 1 February 2009, a 'coronation ceremony' in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was held to coincide with the 53rd African Union Summit, at which he was elected head of the African Union for the year. Gaddafi told the assembled African leaders: "I shall continue to insist that our sovereign countries work to achieve the United States of Africa."

Libya was accused of terrorist hijackings in 1985 and for the terrorist bombing of the "La Belle" nighclub in West Berlin in 1986. Following the US bombing of Libya in 1986 Gaddafi was accused of supporting anti-American government organizations and of training suicide squads to attack American and European interests. In 2003, Gaddafi accepted responsibility for the action of officials for the Lockerbie bombing and paid compensation to the families of the victims, although Gaddafi maintained that he had never given the order for the attack.

Libya was implicated in the training of "revolutionaries". It is also alleged that Gaddafi financed and provided arms to revolutionaries / terrorists. 

Gaddafi is said to have attempted to buy a nuclear bomb and is also said to have had a stockpile of chemical weapons. 

In short, Gaddafi's financial success as a dictator within Libya was at a social cost that would have fostered distrust and resentment amongst some groups internally. This would have made them ripe to incite by foreign powers; that for one reason or another wanted to get rid of a man who wielded a lot of power not just in Libya, but in Africa; a man who like the other hegemons - trained, funded and armed revolutionaries / terrorists, that were not of their choosing. 

Could the civil war in Libya have been fostered by foreign governments that wanted to destabilize Libya? This certainly seems possible. Libya was an oil rich state, and unlike the sycophantic monarchies of the Middle East and Africa - it's dictator did not bow to the Anglo and American hegemons. Gaddafi's controversial foreign policy definitely was a thorn in the side of foreign governments administrations.

Political repression and oppression breed dissent. Despite improvements in overall quality of living, Libyans were oppressed; and an oppressed population is a rich soil in which foreign interests can sow the seeds of revolution, oust an unwanted leader and install a puppet government, or leave the state in turmoil.

On the morning of Thursday, 7 July 2005, four British Islamist men detonated four bombs—three in quick succession aboard London Underground trains across the city and, later, a fourth on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square. As well as the four bombers, 52 civilians were killed and over 700 more were injured in the attacks, the United Kingdom's worst terrorist incident since the 1988 Lockerbie bombing as well as the country's first ever suicide attack. Three of the bombers were British-born sons of Pakistani immigrants; Lindsay was a convert born in Jamaica. #pakistan #terrorism #britain #england #uk source wikipedia
