SAY WHAT? British Foreign Secretary: “Algerian Hostage Crisis could have been worse had we not intervened in Libya”

British-Foreign-Secretary-William-HagueThe threat of extremism in North Africa could be “much worse” if the West had not intervened in Libya, William Hague has warned. (Worse than what?) The Foreign Secretary said that the spread of weapons across the region and the likelihood of further terror attacks would have been increased if Colonel Muammar Gaddafi had not been deposed. (Gaddafi was fighting AGAINST al-Qaeda)

Huffington Post  Hague told the BBC: “Certainly weapons, Tuareg people coming out of Libya have contributed to this situation that then al Qaida in the Maghreb have been able to take advantage of.”


“We were involved, if you recall, in saving lives in Libya. I think, actually, if we had not been doing that, because what we did actually shortened the Libyan conflict, these problems would have been, if anything, even greater.

“If the Libyan conflict had gone on for longer, there would have been an even greater flow of weapons and an even greater opportunity for extremists to take hold in Libya.” He added: “While the Libyan situation may well have contributed to what has happened in Mali, I think the action that the Western world took in Libya, if anything, mitigated that.”

  1. Hague “Hostage crisis could have worse had we not intervened in Libya”

    Wait a he actually saying that the fact that NATO supplied al-Qaeda and extremists groups during the Libya intervention with weapons, the same groups that are now causing mayhem in Algeria, that somehow made things better?
    in which universe does this lying amoral sack of sh*t lives? does he think people are stupid?
    So I guess in William Hague’s upside down universe, al-qaeda and extremists being under control and without NATO weapons, like they were under Gaddafi would have made Algerian crisis worse…. give me a break!

  2. Human rights investigations
    evidence-based, independent and rigorous investigation of human rights abuses
    Libyan rebel ethnic cleansing and lynching of black people

    Click on the above link. Absolutely horrifying. All made possible because of the totally unprovoked, illegal US/NATO war. Shocking barbaric atrocities and genocide of Blacks by the US backed Muslim rebels went on for several months. Is it still going on? Under Gaddafi, Blacks lived in safety. G-D help them.

    “the brigade for purging slaves, black skin”
    – slogan seen painted in rebel country.

    US/UK/FRANCE/NATO unleashed hell on earth in Libya.

    Two U.S. sources currently in Tripoli told G2Bulletin that Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Kaim, who is part of the embattled Gadhafi regime, told them that the Warfalla tribe – one of the largest in Libya – is being joined by other tribes to fight the rebels because of what is described as indiscriminate killing of civilians by Western alliance-backed troops.

    The sources said that Qatari troops, tanks and helicopters “are openly killing these unarmed tribal members. They have their Qatari tanks in the streets of Benghazi. They are actively shooting on unarmed civilians.”

    Repeated NATO bombings also have included hospitals, Ramadan food storage warehouses, the country’s main water distribution infrastructure, private homes and “more than 1,600 other civilian sites.”

  4. UK Foreign Secty: “We were involved, if you recall, in saving lives in Libya.” What a horrible LIE! US/UK and the West backed monsters.

    DAILY MAIL: a United Nations report reveal that up to 8,000 pro-Gaddafi supporters were being held by militia groups in Libya.

    Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay claimed they are being held in appalling conditions and are being abused and tortured.

    Abuse claims: Ibrahim Mohammed says he was tortured at the hands of the Gharyan city forces earlier this month. His claims support assertions by the United Nations that torture and violence is widespread.

    General Director of MSF Christopher Stokes reinforced the UN assertions and said: ‘Patients were brought to us in the middle of interrogation for medical care, in order to make them fit for more interrogation.

    ‘This is unacceptable. Our role is to provide medical care to war casualties and sick detainees, not to repeatedly treat the same patients between torture sessions.

  5. Hague is a moron!!! He makes me ashamed to be British. If he had a brain, he would be dangerous. He and obumboy make a good pair. Both of them are idiots.

  6. What he didn’t say: Had Ambassador Stevens not been left to die by Obama and Hillary, there would have been a lot more weapons coming out of Libya.

  7. hahahaha tory boy is a clown dangerous yes,but a clown lets not forget this man is backing al quiada in Syria and publicly calling them.rebels and freedom fighters

  8. That’s a big ‘SAY WHAT?’ The dumb Brit is spewing the Obama Regime’s vile propaganda! WTH? For all of Gaddafi’s many evils, at least he WAS the monster we knew, not the monsters who killed our peeps in Bengazi (Are you listening Hildabeast? Islamaobama?…………Well, at least the crickets are.) Though I am not making excuses for the man, at least Gaddafi was doing something about al-Qaida. Bush II got his gameface on and scared the madman shitless with the nightmare of a possible ‘regime change.’

    Now we are stuck with the great unknown, which to most of us, really isn’t that unknown, just a helluva lot bloodier than need be. Alas, it is all by diabolical design. Obama’s Alinskiite design to usher in his excretable brand of ‘Islamo-Commutardism.’

    Many multitudes will die in the process of trying to shut this Pandora’s Box.

    • Whoever coined the phrase:

      “Better the devil you know, than the devil you don’t.”

      seemed to be on to something. But if we exchanged ObuMBoy for someone else, how bad could it be? Morsi? Assad? Mugabe? Cameron?

  9. Good grief! are they all part of the Chooooom Gang? WTH is WRONG with these people! Yep, got rid of Gaddfi, and now LOOK! Got rid of Mubarak, now LOOK at that Arab Spring result; wow did wonders, eh! can we say ISLAM Can we say JIHADISTS boys and girls! oh but wait, didn’t Obanger say the “threat of al – Qaeda was over when he was killed? mmmHmmm, yes indeeeedy he did!
    What freakin idiots! It’s ONLY just begun

    • Just yesterday, the Canadian government released an intelligence report that shows the threat of domestic terrorism is rising and it’s being exported…and we know that if intelligence releases a report, it’s been true for some time. So, yes, it’s getting worse and we need to act asap to confront and stop it…if we can…and to quit telling these sorts of lies and bowing to the politically correct…always a misnomer.

    • The problem with US-NATO is that they use Al-Ciaeda like mercenaries, like they have always done, but of course, they can only control a few top heads and they can’t control the hordes of them. They paid and trained them to get rid of Gaddafi in Libya for oil as there is proof of CIA payments to al-Qaeda links fighting in “rebel” brigades and now it’s backfired on them, they wanted to get rid of Assad in Syria and move on to Iran but their mercenaries are getting out of control so the plans are fucked….for the moment….
      U.S, UK, France and all NATO countries are repulsive, working to enslave the world to the mega corporations and World Bank, William Hague is a cockroach and should be tried for crimes against humanity. Democracy in the west is an illusion, just like your “choice” of brands in the pound shops.
