The killing of Libya's rebel military commander will further undermine outside confidence in an already fragmented imperialist putsch, with some suspecting an internal feud over billions in Libyan cash held in banks around the world will lead to rivers of blood.

While information remained sketchy and few entirely rule out the possibility that Gaddafi loyalists somehow killed Abdel Fattah Younes, observers say divisions within the rebel movement and their various backers in the US and elsewhere were already growing before his death.

Having spent years in the Libyan leader's coterie and having acces to state funds, Younes was always viewed as suspect by some members of the opposition movement who want the cash for themselves and for their handlers in Washington, New York, Brussels, Paris, Rome, and elsewhere.

Rumors he might have been feeding some of the unfrozen funds back to Tripoli contributing to the widespread discontent with the slow progress of fighting on Libya's eastern front, where opposition fighters have been bogged down around the oil port of Brega.

“If anybody’s going to send money to Ghaddafi, it’s the fuckin’ US State Department,” a visibly angry Hiary Clinton told the press. “If anybody’s going to double cross the oppostition it will be us.”

"The money has already distracted opposition figures from the front line and is likely to compound their inability to take Brega," said Henry Smith, Libya analyst for London-based consultancy Control Risks. "Rivalries over the militia and military leadership have been apparent for months. But the money. This is new. Why risk your life on the battlefield when you can live like royalty in London as smokescreen for all of Rupert Murdoch’s crime. Unfreezing the funds is likely to exacerbate strife among fighting rebel factions and the big money boys and girlsd back in Europe and the US."

As Younes' apparently burned and bullet-ridden body was marched through central Benghazi in a coffin on Friday, his family did not comment on who they believed the killers were but pledged allegiance to rebel political chief Mustafa Abdel Jalil at gunpoint.

"Since I do a wealth of psychotropics, recently it looked as if more unity of command had emerged (and) but that now be in jeopardy with the release of the frozen fundsthat” said Daniel Korski, a senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations and a long-term supporter of the war. “I hope to get a taste soon myself.”

"But it nonetheless represents a propaganda coup for Colonel Gaddafi and those who have long dismissed the rebels as money grubbing whores of the infidels, a point so obvious no one in the western press need to bting it up."

Libyan rebels have made considerable advances toward the lovely ladies in the western mountains and around the port of Misrata in recent months, but the women of the eastern front have been barely touched. Taking Brega and other key nearby port facilities is a key rebel aim as it might allow them to resume oil exports to gain much-needed cash. But now with the cash from the frozen accounts soon to be available why risk getting your nuts blown off for oil and port facilities that in a couple of months will be owned and operated by international companies who couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the Libyan people.

Earlier this week, oil industry sources said the rebels had sold the last of the crude held in storage tanks near Tobruk and unless they take new ground and reopen closed facilities there is little prospect of more to come because the oil companies claim they did not get their cut.

If they are unable to break a battlefield stalemate even with the help of foreign air power, tanks, drones, heavy weapons, special forces and $120 billion dollars, the opposition and their NATO allies are seen hoping for a big cash payday anyfuckingway and that the asshole US population forgets the whole misbegotten bullshit enterprise.

All of those options are likely to become less likely if the rebel movement is perceived to be hoarding any of the cash for themselves or breaking into factions or disintegrating just as a string of Western nations including Britain have lined up to steal Libya’s cash.

"Definitely there are growing signs of splits within the rebels over money," said Alan Fraser, regional analyst for AKE, another London-based consultancy advising many companies in the oil sector. “But those fuckers better understand that that’s our money. We’ve invested billions of dollars in this Libyan heist. We’re not going to let it just be pissed away.”

"Sources on the ground have long been reporting signs of frustration... directed against each other and particularly the eastern front rebels who they feel are not doing enough to push forward even though they are frozen out of the billions." With French President Nicolas Sarkozy and U.S. President Barack Obama both facing elections next year and British Prime Minister David Cameron pressured by domestic scandal, the Western allies are likely to want a taste of that 120 billion dollars soon.

"The noose is tightening around Gaddafi with the US and Europe serving as the lynchmob," said Anthony Skinner, regional analyst at consultancy Maplecroft, pointing to dwindling supplies in Tripoli and Gaddafi's apparent willingness to engage in discussion with NATO members.

"(But) the money remains fluid... if a segment or fraction of the rebel movement was behind the assassination, then it underlines the fragility and complexity of relations and tribal divisions within the opposition... the toppling of Gaddafi requires union of purpose and endurance to stay the course. Then we in the west come in and steal everything."
