Events in Libya have escalated rapidly in recent days, accompanied by an information and propaganda war between the opposing sides.

A written statement published on 21 May by Saqr Al-Jaroushi, commander of the Air Force of the Libyan National Army (LNA), hints at a dangerous escalation of the situation in the African country, stating that “the largest aerial campaign in Libya’s history is about to begin. All Turkish positions and interests in all (Libyan) cities are now legitimate targets for LNA planes, and as such the civilian population is urged to stay away from them.”

Turkish media had several days earlier launched a mass information campaign in support of Operation Peace Storm in Libya, reporting how the Libyan army had dealt a “crushing blow to Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s military units” around Tripoli, Al-Watiya and Abu Grein, and on the destruction of LNA military equipment. In demonstration of these victories, GNA supporters triumphantly paraded a captured Russian-made Pantsir C1E, an air defense missile system, around the Libyan capital as a trophy. Admittedly, it must be noted that the Pantsir in question was unable to move on its own; the burnt-out trophy was towed by a tractor, having been heavily damaged during the fighting. Nevertheless, the Pantsir became a powerful propaganda tool for Haftar’s opponents. As for how the Pantsir ended up in Libya, it formed part of an arms shipment sent to Haftar by the UAE, one of the field marshal’s main sponsors. This is indicated by the fact that the missile system is built on the chassis of the German MAN-SX45 off-road truck, which was successfully used in this configuration during the Emirates’ military campaign in Yemen.

Turkish media has over the past few days put particular emphasis on how Haftar’s troops lost control over the Al-Watiya airbase south of Tripoli, “hastily fleeing under pressure from the forces of Fayez al-Sarraj’s Government of National Accord (GNA), which receives robust military support from Turkey.” Turkey’s Minister of National Defense Hulusi Akar recently told Turkish information agency Anadolu that the balance of power in Libya is changing and summarized Turkey’s involvement in the conflict, emphasizing that the GNA’s success was made possible by the support of Turkish military consultants and their work with the army in the organization of military training.

Xi recently spoke at a meeting of the Politburo and announced that by the end of the year he has planned to liquidate all paid services that the army previously provided to the populace. Note that the PLA previously provided for civil printing and publishing services. In addition, the list included educational services and the delivery of real estate. He also called for the elimination of any commercial activities and the provision of paid services by the PLA

In Xi is of the opinion that these things must be avoided in order to build and maintain a strong army. “The facts proved that the complete refusal to provide paid services is an important part in creating a clean political environment in the ranks of the military, for building up military power,” Xi Jinping said. “This is necessary to turn the PLA into an advanced world-class army and to ensure long-term order and stability in our country.”He also stressed that at present all forces will be directed to the creation of an “ultramodern army, which, if necessary, will repel any enemy.”

Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, Tuesday stressed resolute efforts to terminate all paid services provided by the armed forces.

Xi made the call while presiding over a group study session of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee on this issue.

Military’s paid services generally refer to those provided by the armed forces such as kindergarten education, publishing services, and real estate rentals to the civilian sector.

The implementation allows no exception, discount or makeshift compromise, Xi said, noting that such work is a major decision made by the CPC Central Committee and the Central Military Commission (CMC) aiming to strengthen the armed forces as well as an important part in reforming national defense and the armed forces.

He also stressed that ending military paid services would create a sound environment for building a strong military in the new era.

Ein Kommentar von Mathias Bröckers.

Da wir die Causa Skripal und Novitschok dank konspirologischer Mustererkennung schon im März als PR-Kampagne und False Flag-Operation enttarnen konnten- als  Giftgaswochen bei McMedien– kommt nun die Nachricht nicht überraschend, dass der Bundesregierung bis heute, außer puren Behauptungen aus England, keinerlei Beweise für eine Täterschaft Russlands vorliegen. Auf die Frage nach solchen zusätzlichen Belegen antwortete Regierungssprecher Seibert in der Bundespressekonferenz: „Wir haben damals gesagt: Wir teilen die Einschätzung des Vereinigten Königreichs, dass es keine andere plausible Erklärung gibt. Diese Haltung ist weiterhin die Haltung der Bundesregierung.“  Während der Regierunsgssprecher so daher plapperte, meldet die Tagesschau:

„Wie das rbb Inforadio aus Fraktionskreisen erfuhr, hat die britische Regierung der Bundesregierung bis heute keine Beweise präsentiert, die belegen würden, dass Russland für den Giftanschlag auf den früheren Doppelagenten Sergej Skripal und seine Tochter verantwortlich ist. Darüber informierte die Bundesregierung gestern im geheim tagenden parlamentarischen Kontrollgremium des Bundestages. Bisher habe man lediglich erfahren, dass es sich bei dem Gift um Nowitschok gehandelt habe- ein chemischer Kampfstoff, der in der Sowjetunion produziert worden war.“

Außerdem hat man mittlerweile aus den Medien erfahren, dass der Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) höchstselbst schon in  den 90er Jahren über Novitschok-Proben verfügte. Es gab und gibt also keinerlei Spur nach Russland oder gar in den Kreml; und es gab und gibt nur Fake News und haltlose Beschuldigungen, wie sie Außenminister Boris Johnson in einem Gastbeitrag für die FAZ am 19.3.2018  wunderbar zusammenfasste:

Der rote Faden, der die Giftanschläge in Salisbury mit der Annexion der Krim, den Cyberattacken in der Ukraine, den Hackerangriffen auf den Bundestag und der russischen Einmischung in europäische Wahlen verbindet, ist die Missachtung der grundlegenden internationalen Regeln durch den Kreml.“

„Getretener Quark wird breit, nicht stark“ wußte schon Goethe und nämliches gilt für diesen „roten Faden“, der freilich bei McMedien in tausenden Wiederholungsschleifen immer weiter penetriert wird. Da mag selbst der wissenschaftliche Dienst des Bundestags Russland im Fall Skripal „rechtskonformes Verhalten“ bescheinigen,
