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.

- THE ONSLAUGHT ON LIBYA: WHAT IS IT FOR REALLY?

Previous deliveries [1,2,3,4] covered the Libya's crisis, the onslaught of Nato's 8 month-long (Mars-November 2011) heavy bombings of Libyan infrastructure - characterized by the systematic destruction of the City of Syrte, the flattening of government buildings and other vital infrastructure elsewhere over the whole Libyan territory, particularly the bombing of electricity grids, schools, university-compounds, hospitals and the Great Man Made River's maintenance sites.

UN Security Council Resolution 1973, which aim was to establish a non-fly zone over Libya had been overturned by Nato member-states to becoming a mandate to intervene into Libya's civil unrest, taking side with the so-called rebels, and finally assist operating a regime change.

In the explanation of the veto cast by Russia (together with China) on October 4, 2011, to opposing a similar resolution about Syria, the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation stated:

“The situation in Syria cannot be considered in the Council separately from the Libyan experience. The international community is alarmed by statements that compliance with the Security Council resolution on Libya in the NATO interpretation is a model for the future action of NATO in implementing the responsibility to protect....The demand for a quick cease-fire turned into a full-fledged civil war, the humanitarian, social, economic and military consequences of which transcend Libyan borders. The situation in connection with the no-fly zone has morphed into the bombing of oil refineries, television stations and other civilian sites. The arms embargo has morphed into a naval blockade in Western Libya, including a blockade of humanitarian goods....With respect to Syria ...the continuation of this tragedy cannot be blamed only on the harsh actions of the authorities. Recent events convincingly show that the radical opposition no longer hides its extremist bent and is relying on terrorist tactics, hoping for foreign sponsors and acting outside of the law. Armed groups supported by smuggling and other illegal activities are providing supplies, taking over land, and killing and perpetrating atrocities against people who comply with the law-enforcement authorities.”

The above statement of the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation is a testimony of what really happened in Libya from Mars 2011 to November 2011.

As a result of the onslaught, several thousands Libyans - 50.000? 100.000? - lost their lives. The survivors are left, since November 2011, in a deep chock state as their standard of living and social environment had been turned upside down.

They are now organizing themselves though, putting in place the Resistance to the invaders, and their local puppets accomplices. The near future of one to two years would tell if the people of Libya would relinquish their economic and political sovereignty to foreign powers.

Spare some times to watch the YouTube video-stream below exposed that visually describe what the Libyans have experienced after the so-called humanitarian intervention of Nato, that destroyed everything built over past 50 years.

The onslaught had been so savagely implemented by Nato and so-called rebels that a sober observer is bewildered, searching for the reasons why.

Indeed, one is entitled to raise the following question: What are the benefits gained by Nato's member-states, France, United Kingdom, Italy and the United States of America in particular, and their protégés - the rebels, raiding and destroying Libya - under the false cover of humanitarian intervention to saving Libyans from allege dictatorship?

- WHAT FOR REALLY?

The question above raised had been partially answered in Africabiz Online previous issue and reads as follows


"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 (for four decades running) into a heavily indebted country - as done everywhere else in sub-Saharan African countries.
"

However, there is more at stake than what is above outlined. It is not only about Central Bank's and oil exploitation's control:


1 - The global financial turmoil in the United States of America and in Europe, that officially started in 2008 [a, b, c, d, e, f, g], and is still ongoing, which experts and pundits think is there to last for at least one decade or two.

2 - The systematic targeting and killing of Black Libyan citizens (Libyan Touareg) during the onslaught, on the false pretence that they are mercenaries from Sub-Saharan African countries recruited by the Jamahiriya Regime.

3 - The extraordinary economic (and diplomatic) inroad made by China into Africa, exchanging developing projects against stakes in the development of natural resources - giving African countries a vital opportunity not to surrender to the "There Is No Alternative," (T.I.N.A) concept developed by western countries.

- MISCELLANEOUS SERIES: FOOD ENZYME FROM PINEAPPLE - BROMELAIN - IS A NATURAL MEDECINE TO FIGHTING CANCER

A decade ago Africabiz Online dedicated a series to tropical fruits as per following links: [34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46] - the last five listed concerning pineapple.

Current delivery revisits the pineapple's issues [42, 43, 44, 45, 46] to highlight the importance of pineapple cultivation as an income building power for African communities and nations.

Indeed, pineapple cultivation/ production can be a strong basis to entering food enzymes industry (beverages and processed food stuffs,) to establishing a strong pharmaceuticals industry based on natural raw materials.

In 1972, the first scientific study about the benefits to using pineapple enzyme (bromelain) for the medical treatment of a host of human diseases had been published by nutritionist Dr. Gregory S. Kelly.

Researchers published, in 2007, in the Journal Planta Medica, a study that found that an enzyme extracted from pineapple stems known as bromelain was superior to the chemo-agent 5-fluorauracil in treating cancer in the animal model.

Bromelain is a general name for a family of sulfhydryl proteolytic enzymes obtained from Ananas comosus, the pineapple plant. It is usually distinguished as either fruit bromelain or stem bromelain depending on its source, with all commercially available bromelain being derived from the stem. Image at the left of this paragraph - courtesy of Edu university/Kelly (click on the image to reach webpage) shows the core center of a pineapple fruit, highlighting the stem "crust" where stem-bromelain is concentrated.

The continuation of the stem "crust" downward into the core of the fruit, is where fruit-bromelain is concentrated.

Bromelain's applications are short listed at following link.

More actions include: (1) inhibition of platelet aggregation; (2) fibrinolytic activity; (3) anti-inflammatory action; (4) anti-tumor action; (5) modulation of cytokines and immunity; (6) skin debridement properties; (7) enhanced absorption of other drugs; (8) mucolytic properties; (9) digestive assistance; (10) enhanced wound healing; and (11) cardiovascular and circulatory improvement. Bromelain is well absorbed orally and available evidence indicates that it's therapeutic effects are enhanced with higher doses. [Source]

Delivery exposed at this link provides information about the potential profit generated by a small scale facility producing 50 metric tons a year of bromelain.
