Let’s now talk about the war crimes by the West/NATO in the attack upon Libya and its peoples.
But first let’s just introduce this topic by advising you that all the wars etc. began by the US post 9/11 have killed many, many hundreds and thousands of people. The people that have died from US horror and Canada’s silence when not actually going to war are in these countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia. And, likely others by secret actions of the CIA.
Not only was Libya attacked from the inside to get this war going Libya was attacked from the outside via the conservative American media which is most oft noted for its lying ways. This was a huge media war upon Libya and upon the peoples of our NATO nations who still trust the news coming out of the US and other corporate press follow-alongs.
By those who follow the issues away from the lies by NBS, FOX, CBC, ABC, MSN, Washington Post, Newyork Times and, in Canada those news slayers using Associated Press for the news and this includeds the broken CBC, corporate CTV etc and most of our newspapers it is easy to see that we, as a coountry, are being guided bt these lies out of the US. Our sovereignty has been severely damaged by the unmitigated gall of the US and our lazyness to not think beyond the US claims. I really thought you different PM.
NATO was introduced to the war in and upon Libya by the US. And – we followed right along like sheep. And this is because, as a country governed by the past Conservatives we have been reliquishing our media sovereignty, in world affairs, to the mega-poison of the US rightwing controlled garbage. A nation bent upon believing lies is no longer a nation but only a facsimilie of one.
The UN Resolution1973 – No Fly Zone made it through the UN and was not vetoed by either the Russians nor the Chinese most sadly. Then the resolution was immediately thrown out and we along with the US began the war crimes that under NATO we committed in the assault upon Libya.
Stephen Lendman (Stephen Lendman is an outstanding anti-racist, humanitarian Jewish American analyst, writer and a Research Associate of the Centre for Research on Globalization) has stated that the crimes committed by NATO against the peoples of Libya as being at a “a Nuremberg Level.”
He also stated that the US-led NATO war on Libya will be remembered as one of history’s “greatest crimes, violating the letter and the spirit of the law and the US onstitution”. Unfortunately the vagrant press and news media haven’t given a damn. He added: “The US-led NATO war on Libya will be remembered as one of history’s greatest crimes, violating the letter and spirit of international law and America’s Constitution.” Whereas the “Third Reich criminals were hanged for their crimes. America’s are still free to commit greater ones.”
Why was the US and the misguided West wanting to attack Libya? First, it was not because of the Lockerbie plane bombing because it is just another US/UK fiction that Libya had anything to do with it. Ghadaffi paid out the money because the sanctions (ie: financial torture) were more costly then paying.
The fact ot the matter is that Libya was not going to sell its oil by using the US dollar; he was going to help the rest of Africa rise up from its destitution created by by foreign companies and demands by the US and the EU, he was going to create an African currency.
At the end of the devastation by the US led NATO Libya was reduced to a garbage heap as people such as Tony Blair became impossibly rich after stealing Libya’s oil riches.
This is what our Canada is backing!
