Can Has Wargame, "Southland" Pre-scripting the Libya War: Exercise Southern Mistral prepped the planes - just needed to load new targets & fuel - a new Vigilant Guardian or Amalgam Virgo?

"Is this real world or exercise??"
--A memorable quote from air traffic controller on 9-11

Logistically speaking, how the hell did the West start bombing Libya so quickly? A French/NATO military exercise (aka wargame) called Southern Mistral was scheduled for almost the exact same time. Are wargames or exercises a way to create the future using logistics? To manipulate the available courses of action to policymakers?

Let's step back for a sec to consider the shady alternative history of wargames in the last decade.

Pre-Scripting, Wargames and Science Fiction Too! A Quality Tangent...

In June 2001 a NORAD field training exercise called Amalgam Virgo was designed to test US operations against aircraft terrorism, and of course most 9-11 skeptics know that an array of wargames including Vigilant Guardian and FEMA's Tripod II were going on around 9-11. Michael Ruppert knocked this one out of the park originally.

Paraphrasing the classic explanation on oilempire.us, The wargames caused many fighter jets to be in Canada instead of in normal locations on the east coast, where they should have been able to intercept the hijacked planes. Also the wargames work by 'injecting' radar blips for pretend aircraft, so the wargames could have caused so many fake blips that the "good military" couldn't find the real planes.

Additionally new lols have surfaced regarding Canadian & UK role in 9-11, as portrayed in the recent video "Is it Live or is it Livery?" by the AbelDanger.net guys. (Their material is quite interesting but they can't write an introductory paragraph for jack :-P ) They even added more material about Blips on Thursday! AbelDanger points out the overlooked shady Livery Guilds of the City of London have been an organized factor for British power & banking for many centuries. I'd love to make a fictionalized account of their role in things.... anyway back to wargames!

One of the weirder notions in the world of alternative news and conspiracyLols is the idea of 'pre-scripting', wherein notions and events are introduced as fiction into popular culture. Wargames like Amalgam Virgo, and TV shows & movies produced with government support (ie Michael Bay films etc) can all fit in to this pre-scripting idea all too easily. Sadly, the fantasy TV series '24' worked as pre-scripting on all kinds of government officials, indoctrinating them into the false principles of torture.

Arguably this is what guys near the Fabian Socialist utopian scene such as Aldous Huxley, Orson Welles, and before him HG Wells, were really all about. Science fiction was a way to create a vision of the future through seemingly benign public entertainment, to essentially prepare the minds of the public for the once unthinkable.

Aldous' brother Julian Huxley was a classic scheming globalist - in his piece "UNESCO: its purpose and its philosophy" (1947) he apparently wrote (and I'd love to find the full text of this beaster):

“Thus even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable.” (Huxley, UNESCO)

The wargames and constant exercises are an indicator of the restless nature of the military complex, and they reflect its goals and aspirations. Just ask anyone living near American exercises by Russia or China how the operations make them feel.

In March 2011, a massive French wargame called Southern Mistral was all set to launch, but they had to go off and bomb Libya at almost the exact same time instead. US Rep. Dennis Kucinich rightly announced how sketchy he thinks this is. (However no one cares about Kucinich, Libya or the debt ceiling because someone in Congress was Sexting! Sexting I tells ya!)

I am reposting the 2 main articles from GlobalResearch.ca because it's damn important to understanding what's going on. Thanks to the indefatiguable Prof. Chossudovsky for laying this one out.

Scenario - Here's the English version of the official Mistral site - (which runs Joomla sadly): Welcome to Southern Mistral 11

sm11cartepays.png

SOUTHLAND : Dictatorship responsible for an attack against France's national interests.  

FRANCE : Makes the decision to show its determination to SOUTHLAND (under United Nations Security council resolution n°3003).

UNITED-KINGDOM : Allied country as determined in the bilateral agreement. The United Kingdom supports France through the deployment of its air assets.

NAVARRE : Allied country giving clearance to French and British aircraft to overfly its territory.

OK so basically France is testing bombing the shit out of some country to the South based on a UNSC resolution. I am Jack's lack of surprise. I'll trim out the 'scenario' part of his article as it's the same as above ^

When War Games Go Live: "Staging" a "Humanitarian War" against "SOUTHLAND" Under an Imaginary UN Security Council Resolution 3003

by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky - April 16 2011

Military operations of this size and magnitude are never improvised. The war on Libya as well as the armed insurrection were planned months prior to the Arab protest movement...

Libya, 19 March 2011. "No Fly Zone" under UN Security Council Resolution 1973: A "Humanitarian War" is Launched.

We were led to believe that the protest movement in Egypt and Tunisia had spread to Libya.

The insurrection in Libya was presented as a spontaneous response to a wave of pro-democracy activism which had swept the Arab World.  

In turn, we were led to believe that "the international community" decided in response to these unfolding events, to "protect the lives of civilians" and refer the matter to the United Nations Security Council.

The media then reported that it was only once the UN Security Council had adopted Resolution 1973, that the US and NATO member countries took the decision to intervene militarily in Libya under the "No Fly Zone"...

THE WAR ON LIBYA WAS KNOWN AND DECIDED WELL IN ADVANCE.

MILITARY PLANNING WAS IN "AN ADVANCED STAGE OF READINESS".

UN SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION 1973 PERTAINING TO LIBYA WAS ALREADY ON THE DRAWING BOARD, MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ONSET OF  THE "PRO-DEMOCRACY" INSURRECTION IN EASTERN LIBYA. ...  

Read carefully  ["   " indicate quotation  from "The Southern Mistral 2011" War Games, Scenario)]  
  

On November 02 2010, more than four months prior to the onset of Operation Odyssey Dawn, France and the UK announced the conduct of war games under Operation "SOUTHERN MISTRAL 2011" against "AN IMAGINARY COUNTRY' called "SOUTHLAND", living under a "DICTATORSHIP" which allegedly "was responsible for an attack against France's national interests".  

The Franco-British (humanitarian) air operation against "SOUTHLAND" was to be carried out pursuant to an IMAGINARY "UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION NO: 3003".

The war games were scheduled to start on March 21, 2011. THESE FRANCO-BRITISH WAR GAMES NEVER TOOK PLACE. OPERATION "SOUTHERN MISTRAL" WENT LIVE ON MARCH 19, 2011 (two days prior to the scheduled date).

Below is the exact quote and colors from the Franco-British war games website which is hosted by France's Air Force:

"SOUTHLAND : Dictatorship responsible for an attack against France's national interests.   

FRANCE : Makes the decision to show its determination to SOUTHLAND (under United Nations Security council resolution n°3003).

UNITED-KINGDOM : Allied country as determined in the bilateral agreement. The United Kingdom supports France through the deployment of its air assets." (Commandement de la défense aérienne et des opérations aériennes, Southern Mistral 2011:  Scenario)  

The war games were scheduled to take place from the 21st to the 25 March 2011.

"Six Royal Air Force Tornado GR4s, one tanker Vickers VC-10 and one Boeing E3D will be deployed together with French Air force Mirage 2000Ds, 2000Ns and 2000Cs operating with a fleet of around thirty aircraft including helicopters, Boeing tankers and Awacs radar aircraft.

Air Raid Southern Storm will be commanded and controlled by the National Air Operations Centre (CNOA) of Lyon Mont-Verdun air base (BA 942).

An Air Operations Cell deployed at Nancy air base (BA 133) will follow in real time all the air missions and reproduce the air raids.

Simultaneously, Paratrooper Commando Air 20 (CPA20) will receive its British counterpart in Dijon: the RAF Regiment. Together they will train for air base protection missions on operational theatres in compliance with what is achieved today in Afghanistan.

Furthermore, RAF Regiment members will train in Captieux to helicopters’ air policing measures. These specific procedures are implemented on a daily basis by the Quick reaction Alert FAF air defence helicopters to intervene against “slow movers”."

"An adapted scenario was developed for the exercise.

Based on Western geography, France mostly, an imaginary country was created: SOUTHLAND. An artificial border was drawn inside France to simulate this country."

HESE FRANCO-BRITISH WAR GAMES NEVER TOOK PLACE. OPERATION "SOUTHERN MISTRAL" WENT LIVE ON MARCH 19, 2011 AGAINST "SOUTHLAND".

"OPERATION SOUTHERN MISTRAL" = "Operation Odyssey Dawn"

"SOUTHLAND" = "Libya"

"Security Council Resolution 3003"   = "Security Council Resolution 1973".

"DICTATORSHIP" = "Qadhaffi Regime"

Under the war games scenario Security Council Resolution 3003 was proposed by France, whereas "the real life" UN Security Council Resolution 1973 was proposed by France, the UK and Lebanon.

The only difference of substance is that "SOUTHLAND" (aka Libya), the so-called imaginary Southern country for the war games was inserted inside the territory of Southern France (See Map above THE UK IS GREEN, FRANCE IS BLUE, SOUTHLAND IS RED AND NAVARRE IS ORANGE). (Navarre 'Navarra" designates a region of Northern Spain).

The imaginary location of this imaginary Southern country called "SOUTHLAND" was not really an issue, because the war games were postponed...     

The French Air Force announced (in English) the "Suspension of exercise Southern Mistral 2011 [against SOUTHLAND]... Due to the current international events [BOMBING OF LIBYA], exercise Southern Mistral has been suspended."  Suspension of exercise Southern Mistral 2011. The French version uses the term Mise en veille which means "put on standby" (Mise en veille de l’exercice Southern Mistral 2011). THE OPERATION WAS NOT "PUT ON STANDBY": THE BRITISH AND FRENCH WAR PLANES WHICH WERE TO BE DEPLOYED AS PART OF OPERATION "SOUTHERN MISTRAL" INCLUDING FRANCE'S MIRAGE 2000 AND BRITAIN'S TORNADO GR4A WERE SENT TO BOMB LIBYA.


France's Mirage 2000 used in Operation Odyssey Dawn against Libya,
slated to be used in the Southern Mistral war games agains "Southland".  

Royal Air Force Tornado GR4A slated to be deployed in
the Southern Mistral war games against "Southland".

What can be said regarding these war games, the attacks on Libya and United Nations Security council resolutions 3003 and 1973?....

We invite our readers to think and reflect on the logic of military planning.

Military operations of this size and magnitude are never improvised. The war on Libya as well as the armed insurrection were planned months prior to the Arab protest movement.

Dennis Kucinich sez: November 2010 War Games: "Southern Mistral" Air Attack against Dictatorship in a Fictitious Country called "Southland"

On November 2, 2010 France and Great Britain signed a mutual defence treaty, which included joint participation in "Southern Mistral" (www.southern-mistral.cdaoa.fr), a series of war games outlined in the bilateral agreement. Southern Mistral involved a long-range conventional air attack, called Southern Storm, against a dictatorship in a fictitious southern country called Southland. The joint military air strike was authorised by a pretend United Nations Security Council Resolution. The "Composite Air Operations" were planned for the period of 21-25 March, 2011. On 20 March, 2011, the United States joined France and Great Britain in an air attack against Gaddafi's Libya, pursuant to UN Security Council resolution 1973.

Have the scheduled war games simply been postponed, or are they actually under way after months of planning, under the name of Operation Odyssey Dawn? Were opposition forces in Libya informed by the US, the UK or France about the existence of Southern Mistral/Southern Storm, which may have encouraged them to violence leading to greater repression and a humanitarian crisis? In short was this war against Gaddafi's Libya planned or a spontaneous response to the great suffering which Gaddafi was visiting upon his opposition?

Members of the United States Congress are wondering how much planning time it took for our own government, in concert with the UK and France, to line up 10 votes in the Security Council and gain the support of the Arab League and Nato, and then launch an attack on Libya without observing the constitutional requirement of congressional authorisation.

Libya was attacked, we have been told, because Gaddafi allegedly had killed 6,000 of his own people. But is this true? It should be remembered that in 2006, a full 18 years after the Lockerbie bombing, the US lifted sanctions against Libya, which was welcomed back into the international fold.

Now, as Gaddafi faces armed internal opposition backed by a UN Security Council resolution and faces powerful external opposition backed by the military of the US, the UK and France, he is told he must give up power. But to whom? What is the end game?

The US has been dancing around the regime change issue, (since that is not sanctioned by the UNSC Resolution) but as in most cases one has to watch where the bombs are falling to determine whether or not regime change is the policy.

The newest argument for regime change is that if he is not ousted Gaddafi can be expected to attempt Lockerbie-type retaliation against the west in response to the attacks seeking to oust him.

This bloody enterprise is beginning to sound a lot like Iraq: "Saddam was killing his own people, will kill his people, or will kill us if we don"t get him first."

So did the Bush Administration pump up the fears of the American people that we were next, that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and had the intention and capability of attacking the United States.

The Iraq war begins its ninth year at a long term cost to US taxpayers of in excess of $3 trillion.The intelligence making the case for the war was "sexed up". President Bush and Vice President Cheney made a false case for war. An expensive lie. In the name of saving the people of Iraq, we bombed the country, invaded, changed the regime and it is still a carnival of death. In the end it was China, not involved in the war, which received a multi-billion oil deal.

The war in Afghanistan, with no end in sight, has already run a decade and will inevitably cost trillions.

The war against Libya will cost the US $1 billion for the first week.

But we in America are being assured that since Nato is taking over, our role will change. In addition to funding the Libyan war from our own Pentagon resources, the US provides 25% of the funding of Nato, the UK 9.1%, France 8.72%. For all intents and purposes the coalition is handing control of the war over – to itself.

As the funding switches to Nato, we in the US will get the Libyan war at a 75% discount, and our allies in the UK and France will have to pay considerable sums from their own treasuries for a war which is sure to cost billions. Of the 28 members of Nato, I think of Iceland which provides 0.0450 of Nato's military budget. If member nations are assessed accordingly, poor Iceland, whose economy has imploded, will pay $45m for each billion spent on the war in Libya.

Expensive membership dues.

This sleight-of-hand-over to NATO is an attempt to quell popular dissent to the war by making it appear that no one nation is taking up the burden of saving Libya. But it will beg more questions such as who or what is the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and how did they work their way from the North Atlantic to the Gulf of Sidra, not to mention in Afghanistan on the Chinese border?

This war is wrong on so many fronts. The initial stated purpose, protecting Libyan civilians, will soon evaporate as it becomes clear that the war has accelerated casualties and enlarged a humanitarian crisis. Debates over the morality of intervention will give way to a desperate search for answers as to how and when do we get out, and how and why did we get in.

Anyhow that's about the most concrete example of wargame pre-scripting I've seen in years, if evar. They who control the past, control the future. The wargames can go live at any time.
