Two Conflicting Views of Operation Odyssey Dawn

Matthew Ward

Michel Chossudovsky

Just to illustrate the difficulties of navigating the sea of commentary in these End Times, here are two radically differing views of what is happening in Libya.

The first comes from Matthew Ward, whose voice I trust. The second comes from Michel Chossudovsky, whose insights I once highly valued, but who does not follow the galactic and spirit sources that we do here.

Matthew says that the Libyan intervention is a selfless defense of civilians and Michel says it is the opening volley in a new war for oil.

Michel must “construe by his wits,” as Sir Thomas More once said. If one must do so, how does one know when a change of course has occurred?

Here is Matthew on Operation Odyssey Dawn”

“We are aware of the conflicting opinions about the US-led coalition of military forces in Libya. What we see is a glorious U-turn in the attitude of national leaders intervening in the affairs of another country: For the first time in your history, intervention is not for a purely selfish purpose, but a noble one—to assist people who are fighting for their freedom.  Without this assistance, many more Libyans would be slaughtered by the dictator whose conscience along with his mental capacity was destroyed long ago.

“The day of dictators is over and so is the day of supporting those dictators for self-serving reasons. The day of exploiting Earth’s resources without regard for environmental destruction is over, as is the day of the wealth of the world in the hands of a few. Everything based in darkness is swiftly coming to an end.” (1)

And now a snippet from Michel’s Global article on the real purpose behind the NATO operation:

Libya: Largest Military Undertaking since the Invasion of Iraq. Towards a Protracted Military Operation

By Michel Chossudovsky

Global Research, March 20, 2011,

Outright lies by the international media: Bombs and missiles are presented as an instrument  of peace and democratization…
This is not a humanitarian operation. The war on Libya opens up a new regional war theater.

There are three distinct war theaters in the Middle East Central Asian region. Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq.

What is unfolding is a fourth US-NATO War Theater in North Africa, with the risk of escalation.

These four war theaters are functionally related. They are part of an integrated US-NATO military agenda.

The bombing of Libya has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon for several years as confirmed by former NATO commander General Wesley Clark.

Operation Odyssey Dawn is acknowledged as the “biggest Western military intervention in the Arab world since the invasion of Iraq began exactly eight years ago.” (Russia: Stop ‘indiscriminate’ bombing of Libya – Taiwan News Online, March 19, 2011).

This war is part of the battle for oil. Libya is among the World’s largest oil economies with approximately 3.5% of global oil reserves, more than twice those of the US.

The underlying objective is to gain control over Libya’s oil and gas reserves under the disguise of a humanitarian intervention.

The geopolitical and economic implications of a US-NATO led military intervention directed against Libya are far-reaching.

“Operation Odyssey Dawn ” is part of  a broader military agenda in the Middle East and Central Asia which consists in gaining control and corporate ownership over more than sixty percent of the world’s reserves of oil and natural gas, including oil and gas pipeline routes.

With 46.5 billion barrels of proven reserves, (10 times those of Egypt), Libya is the largest oil economy in the African continent followed by Nigeria and Algeria (Oil and Gas Journal). In contrast, US proven oil reserves are of the order of 20.6 billion barrels (December 2008) according to the Energy Information Administration.  U.S. Crude Oil, Natural Gas, and Natural Gas Liquids Reserves).

What this illustrates is the difficulty that we’ll experience in knowing when to stand down from our vigilance against the black operations of the dark cabal. Here Matthew says that the black hats have turned their hats around and Michel says that no such thing has happened.

Meanwhile I have no direct way of knowing myself which version is true. The most I can say is that I trust Matthew and prefer his version. If you look closely at lightworker discussions these days, you’ll see this kind of disagreement arise repeatedly. When is it safe to say that institutions and agencies have joined the Light? By what actions will we recognize that as having happened? If we didn’t have access to Matthew, SaLuSa, the Arcturian Group, and other non-conventional commentators, how would we know when the dark has been overcome?
