Dmitry Rogozin told RIA Novosti on Friday that NATO is probably preparing a ground invasion to overthrow the Gaddafi regime in Libya. Rogozin is Russia’s NATO envoy.
“I think that now we are witnessing the preparation stage of a ground operation which NATO, or at least some of its members… are ready to begin,” Rogozin said.
In April, The Guardian reported that the EU had drawn up a “concept of operations” for the deployment of military forces in Libya.
“The plan is being spearheaded by the EU’s anointed foreign and security policy chief Catherine Ashton, a woman who has never been democratically elected to public office in her life yet is now about to commit EU troops to a new war that some have warned could last anything up to 30 years,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote on April 18.
During the Bilderberg meeting this year, former Secretary of State and Rockefeller minion Henry Kissinger said the U.S. needs to launch an invasion of Libya, according to investigative journalist Jim Tucker. The operation should last a year, Kissinger said.
In June, Infowars.com received information from multiple sources indicated an attack was planned for October. The troops will be deployed from Fort Hood, according to the source, and U.S. Special Forces will be sent this month. “Initial numbers are estimated at 12,000 active forces and another 15,000 in support, totaling nearly 30,000 troops,” Aaron Dykes wrote.

Air Force and Navy aircraft are still flying hundreds of strike missions over Libya despite the Obama administration’s claim that American forces are playing only a limited support role in the NATO operation.
An Africa Command (AFRICOM) spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday that since NATO’s Operation Unified Protector (OUP) took over from the American-led Operation Odyssey Dawn on March 31, the U.S. military has flown hundreds of strike sorties. Previously, Washington had claimed that it was mostly providing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and tanker support to NATO forces operating over Libya.
“U.S. aircraft continue to fly support [ISR and refueling] missions, as well as strike sorties under NATO tasking,” AFRICOM spokeswoman Nicole Dalrymple said in an emailed statement. “As of today, and since 31 March, the U.S. has flown a total of 3,475 sorties in support of OUP. Of those, 801 were strike sorties, 132 of which actually dropped ordnance.”
A White House report on Libya sent to Congress on June 15 says that “American strikes are limited to the suppression of enemy air defense and occasional strikes by unmanned Predator UAVs against a specific set of targets.” The report also says the U.S. provides an “alert strike package.”
