A WORD FROM THE EDITOR


Dear visitor and international investor,


We warmly welcome you, if this is your first visit to Africabiz Online - The ultimate newsletter on trading and investing in 49 sub-Saharan African countries. If you are a regular and faithful reader, welcome back.

- SO, IT WAS ALL ABOUT REGIME CHANGE.

In less than six months, from March 2011 to September 2011, the social and political plight of the Libyan people had been turned upside down by a strange rebellion, backed and supported by Nato's heavy bombings that claimed the lives of several thousands of Libyans - 50,000? - and destroyed vital infrastructure setup over half a century.

The following video thoroughly explains what really happened in LIbya during the past six months.


Yes, in six months times, the social fabrics and economic gains accumulated by the Libyan people over 50 years to lifting the country from poverty league (Libya was listed in 1951 as the poorest country in the world) to the one of the most advanced developed country in Africa, and in the global muslim world had been destructured.

Libya's assets all around the world and particularly in the developed countries had been frozen. And the countries detaining these funds (France, the UK, the United Stated of America, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey) are now offering loans to the "new rulers of Libya". Strange, isn't it? (click following link to read about War is Good for Business: Rebuilding Libya with Stolen Money)

You would be taking note that Libya, since four decades running had never requested a loan to develop, from any external source. For instance, the Great Man Made River had been established investing US$30billion, without borrowing a cent from abroad. And now, after Nato's bombings, the gigantic water supplying structure would be rebuilt borrowing from abroad. Strange.

So, under the veil of promoting democracy, we are witnessing the powers of the day, the United States of America, France, the United Kingdom and followers countries under Nato's flag attempting to re-take control of Libya's political, financial and economic future.

Indeed, this is the first time in history that a national rebel movement that does not have - at the date of this delivery, October 15, 2011, a constituted and established ruling government, being swiftly recognized by the United Nations, the World Bank, and the IMF.

The rebels movement had even been recognized by a score of western governments as the sole and unique representative of the Libyan people long before victory was declared with the "fall" of Tripoli to the dissidents.

More astonishing, long before the "fall" of Tripoli, in August, 4 2011, UK's government throws out Gaddafi's regimes representatives at the UK's Libya's embassy and hands over the building to the rebels.

A Central Bank had also been established in the rebels capital of Benghazi, at the beginning of the rebellion - when the official Central Bank in Tripoli was still operative and functional. Strange.

All above listed strange occurrences, the hastiness to recognize the rebels as the sole and unique representatives of the Libyan people, the supporting Nato's bombings, the diplomatic orgy to provide an international diplomatic backing to the rebels, and the establishment of a Central Bank are suspect events that are backgrounds to raising few questions.

In a previous delivery titled, To Impose Democracy at Gun Point, or Hidden Agenda, Africabiz Online put a question mark on the bombing assist provided by Nato's nations (led by France and the United Kingdom) to the rebels - for alleged humanitarian reasons.

Now, seven months into the crisis in Libya, on this October 2011, while Gaddafi's followers are still fighting the onslaught on their country, and Gaddafi himself still at large, it is obvious that the humanitarian reasons put forward by Nato's nations, to intervene in Libya are simply a veil for a hidden agenda, that is to control Libya's oil production and distribution, to force the country back into western sphere umbrella - imposing free-trading concept.

Yes, simply put, Nato's member nations are trying to steer back Libya Central Bank into the mainstream financial structure, under the watching eyes of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, to provide (reconstruction) funds to Libya with hefty interests payments - and transform a country which was free of debts into a heavily indebted country - as done everywhere else in sub-Saharan African countries.

For sure, Nato's bombings succeeded in establishing chaos in the country, disrupting food and water supply. That was Nato's PLAN A - to supporting the rebels - establishing social and economic chaos, divide to rule, aggravating racial bias, painting sub-Saharan African migrants and even black skin Libyans from the deep south of the country as mercenaries to the Gaddafi's regime. To be followed by PLAN B - assist the rebels to re-establish order and provide loans for the reconstruction. Ordo out of Chaos!

However, it seems that things are not evolving as planned. If PLAN A was fairly successful, PLAN B seems to have serious hiccups.

Indeed, the rebels, in spite of Nato's supporting heavy bombings do not have the military might to taking full control and are struggling to establish a representative government. Further, the invasion's partners are now counting their own cards and dissensions are building up amongst westerners and Arabs who backed the i invasion.

Thus, contrary to the formidable propaganda distilled by the western media and Aljezira network, to promoting the rebels, nothing is settled yet. News are now filtering out that the Gaddafi's regime is not yet out of power, is holding firm some important towns and regions and had, on September 26-29, 2011 regained ground in Tripoli.

In brief, it is now clear for any sober observer that the rebels would have an uphill battle to establishing a credible government, stabilize the country, organize elections (the reason for the dissidence) - and take full political and economic control of Libya.

Nato should start thinking about PLAN C (finding a safe territory for their rebels. In Benghazi?) because the initial scenario - to kill Gaddafi or to force him taking a French leave, fleeing the country, failed, and Nato is now in murky waters, dealing with the Resistance which sacrificed 1,000,000 people out of 2,500,000 - between 1940-1943 to kick out Italian invaders.

- MISCELLANEOUS SERIES:LIQUID GLUCOSE FROM CASSAVA STARCH AS RAW MATERIAL TO PRODUCING BERAGES AND FOOD STUFFS

A previous delivery started this series about starch industry, and the YouTube video at this link highlights the importance of starch industry.

Delivery exposed at this link describes the economics of a small scale unity to producing liquid glucose from cassava starch.

Liquid glucose can be used as raw material in several opportunities above listed, particularly in the ones concerning fruits [34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46
] and cereals [30, 31, 32, 33] transformations.

In most African countries, beer is a popular beverage, locally produced with imported cereals (hops).

A decade ago, Africabiz Online dedicated a delivery to a small scale unity to producing sorghum beer. using sorghum as raw material.

You may visit this link to review this particular important opportunity to entering the beverage industry in African countries. Liquid glucose from cassava starch can be the sweetening raw material.


REMARK: As exposed in a previous delivery, Glucose have half of sweetening power of sugar from sugar cane stick. However, the low producing price off-factory, above outlined (USD520 per metric ton), compared well with the producing cost of brown sugar sugar cane (USD598) as here exposed.
