Why the International Airport of Tripoli Closed down for three days.


Why the International Airport of Tripoli Closed down for three days.

We all know that Libya after the illegal war in 2011 is NOT the great success as declared by Obama but is a failed state that is a fact. What the Western Media neglects to report is that all Libyans are struggling against the ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS brought in by NATO, F.UK.US, QATAR, U.A.E. and SAUDI ARABIA. Before I conclude this article about the closing of the International airport of Tripoli, I would like to reiterate for my readers what has happened since the end of the ILLEGAL War up to and including today’s incident. 

The Israeli agreement signed and sealed by the phony entity NTC (National Transitional Council), which was put in place by NATO and F.UK.US to rule Libya forever.  This document gave the Mossad a permanent base of operations in the green mountain area of Libya. When I first tweeted this document other reporters (I do not claim to be a reporter just an activist and a fighter for the liberation of my country from the colonization done illegally by the west) tried to mock me by saying it is a false document and No Western Media has published it therefore, it does not exist.  This agreement was signed in Afghanistan. Here is the link which confirms: “The tribe’s security got this document from their people inside and I believe it came out of Afghanistan.” The document is written in Hebrew and is an agreement between the NATO puppet rebels and Israel. The agreement stated that Israel will arm and train the rebels until they take over Libya at which time Israel will be allowed to build a military base in the green mountain area in the east of Libya.“Israel-involvement-fake-revolution.  All of these conditions are being met and the location has been secured for Israel.

We the Libyan people are a very straight forward people. We were never fanatics about religion or politics. What we desire is security for our family, a good job, a home we could call our own and the ability to travel abroad. This we had before NATO blew up our country.  So what changed? Well the Illegal war for one, the imported mercenaries from Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, U.A.E, Turkey, Syria, Palestine, Tunis, Algiers, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan, America, Israel, England and France. Now the F.UK.US are using the uneducated-poor in Libya as their patsies because they are cheaper than their own troops. They import these uneducated-poor-mercenaries whenever they want to overthrow a legitimate government. Any Arab country that does not voluntarily comply with the commands of the “one world order” Zionists is invaded. Here is a formal confirmation supporting my earlier statements about the mercenaries who are Al Qaeda: The Database Shortly before his untimely death, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that “Al Qaeda” is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan”. Courtesy of World Affairs, a journal based in New Delhi, WMR can bring you an important excerpt from an Apr.-Jun. 2004 article by Pierre-Henry Bunel, a former agent for French military intelligence.

“I first heard about Al-Qaida while I was attending the Command and Staff course in Jordan. I was a French officer at that time and the French Armed Forces had close contacts and cooperation with Jordan . . .

“Two of my Jordanian colleagues were experts in computers. They were air defense officers. Using computer science slang, they introduced a series of jokes about students’ punishment.

“For example, when one of us was late at the bus stop to leave the Staff College, the two officers used to tell us: ‘You’ll be noted in ‘Q eidat il-Maaloomaat’ which meant ‘You’ll be logged in the information database.’ Meaning ‘You will receive a warning . . .’ If the case was more severe, they would used to talk about ‘Q eidat i-Taaleemaat.’ Meaning ‘the decision database.’ It meant ‘you will be punished.’ For the worst cases they used to speak of logging in ‘Al Qaida.’

 The west has plans for us Libyans: Africa is a land mass that is a little more than 3 times the size of the United States.  The Africans north and south of Sahara must unite. The permanent tactic of the Europeans in general, and the British, in particular, is to divide and conquer. This is the standard operating procedure of imperialist/Zionists.  In Libya, the Zionist had been planning for decades to exploit the traditional Arab Libya.  I abhor the Zionist vision of Libya as a racist state. The Zionists invision the creation of Libya as a racist State, in the same way as South Africa was once a racist State. Number one fear of the Zionists has always been the unification all of Africa.

So now you have a better picture of what is happening in Libya. Libya is now being occupied by imported terrorist groups brought in, trained and financed by ISRAEL, USA, FRANCE AND BRITAIN: Al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, Ansar Sharaia, Misurata/Jewish Racist Rat Brigade and Daash which is under Abdelhakim Belhaj.  Belhaj is the only one who is a Libyan but he was in exile because Islamic Extremists were forbidden in Libya under the past government. Belhaj carries a BRITISH passport and has been caught with many other professionally prepared phony passports.  He was living in England when the US decided it was time to sent him back to Libya as a gift to the legitimate Jamahiriya government, but it was a trap. The US used all its influence with the UN to force the Jamahiriya government (for HUMANITARIAN REASONS) to release all prisoners in Libya who were claimed to be political prisoners but were in fact radical Islamist terrorists. All of those released were associated with Al Qaeda, Libyan Islamic fighting group (LIFG), and other extremist groups,  all of whom originate from the east Libyan town of Derna. The legitimate Jamahiriya government complied with this demand even though it was against the better judgment of the Late Leader. He capitulated with the UN demand because he was promised more freedoms in world business for the Libyan people.  The last prisoner was released in the first week of February 2011. This coincided with the resignation of Mustapha Abdeljalil from his job with the legitimate Libyan government.  

 Do you think this was a coincidence? I don’t think so!

Everything had been planned to the last detail. The master-planners did not calculate the HUMAN factor, this being that the Libyan people loved their country and supported their government by a factor of 85%. Libya is an ancient culture with one of the strongest support for family units in the world.  Those values are upheld by the tribal structure.  Libyan people are typically non confrontational, they enjoy strong belief in their God, but protect the every religion based on a book.  These are all the things that the Zionists cannot allow. They attempted to split Libya into THREE pieces to be shared with England, United States and France. This is why you see the attempt at forced independence of CYRENAICA which is Benghazi. Second division to be an area of the minority of the Amazigh or Tamazight known as Berbers; they are scattered between the regions of Zawiyah, Nalut and Gharyan. The area of northwest to be called TRIPOLITANIA and lastly the extremists want to make the city of Derna a radical Islamic emirate.  I have attached a map of Libya so that you can see the divisions.

The Libyan people do not want to be divided, we do not want to live in fear, we do not want our wives and daughters raped. We are sick and tired from the 240 foreign & national militia’s who are financed by NATO/CIA/MOSSAD to cause chaos in Libya. We are sick with worry for all of our beloved sisters and brothers being illegally detained in militia-controlled detention centers, living under inhumane conditions. These centers are holding nearly 40,000 people without access to the justice system, and some 2 million civilians still remain forcibly displaced  or in exile as a result of the illegal war in 2011.

Since NATO began its destruction of Libya in March 2011until today, I don’t think any legitimate Libyan has had a peaceful night.  The legitimate Libyan people suffered continuous bombings for 8 months during the NATO attacks in 2011 (I am surprised any of us are still alive). After NATO accomplished the destruction of Libya it left 250,000 psychopathic mercenaries to finish the destruction of Libya. These mercenaries formed militias (armed gangs). These militias are always fighting each other and of course there is collateral damage.  In April of 2014, the calculated death toll since NATO started its destruction of Libya is over 600,000; most were civilians.

As I stated before the master-planners failed to calculate the Human factor – the love of our country. Today there is a Green Resistance and day by day it’s getting stronger as more Libyans are realizing or waking up and joining the resistance against the militias and the foreign occupiers. The tribes in exile are assisting were ever they can to help the resistance. Many “self exiled” Libyans are returning to assist. Each and every one of us is giving a helping hand.  We will never stop loving our country even if we have to die to save it.

On the 12th of this month there was a meeting with the main militias to decide who control’s what. After the militias agreed they shook their hands and left. The Misurata militia, Tajoura, Janzour brigade 27, Souk Juma and Daash initiated an attack on the 13th of July, against the Zintan tribal fighters and the International airport of Tripoli. The reason for this attack was because the Daash militia which belongs to Belhaj, lost control of the military airport called Mitiga. Belhaj’s control of Mitiga allowed Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the UAE to smuggle arms, alcohol and money into Libya.  In return, Belhaj and his crew would repay them with Human trafficking of children and women.  With the loss of Mitiga airport to the government,  Belhaj and his criminal associates are left with only one airport in Misurata which is not sufficient for all their illegal activities. These militia’s are attempting to put Tripoli under siege, but as I said before the Human factor is always foiling their schemes.  The Zintan tribe, although they are not my favorite tribe, are probably the most proficient Libyan fighters, they are more humane and apparently they do love Libya. They are always on alert. When the “militia mafia” fighters of Misurata, Daash, Tajoura, Zanjur , Souk Juma  attacked the Zintan, they were in for a very big surprise, they were soundly beaten back.

Many thanks for the editing of the above article by J. Moriarty 

“We are publishing the reports of the secret security officers of the Libyan intelligence regarding the meetings of the Muslim Brotherhood and the armed mafia in collaboration with the terrorist elements from Daash (Belhaj). This report shows the brutal schemes (collusion) of these criminals to attack the legitimate Libyan army who are working to bring back the dignity and security of Libya. A copy of their plan has been leaked and we have posted it below. This report shows what is happening today in Tripoli because of NATO’s illegal actions in 2011and its results in detail. A copy of the original plan was delivered to the head of Libyan intelligence by hand.”

The Truth of Libya (Finally) Goes Mainstream


The Truth of Libya (Finally) Goes Mainstream

Mustafa Abdul Jalil Head of False Libyan Revolution Admits Qaddafi did not Kill Protesters

Author: Eric Draitser

Editors note: The article admits that the Illegal war in Libya was a false flag, its what we have been saying since 2011 finally the truth is coming out and going into the mainstream. We the simple people have been writing about it from the beginning and the Mainstream was calling us conspirators, Qaddafi loyalists are some of the names that I can remember. Thanks to all the activists and bloggers who spent hours on end with no financial back up. We have been for the last three years laughed at, condemned at, some were prosecuted, some lost their lives and some are still in hiding as the Libyan Militias have put a price on our heads. I would like to thank the author and his colleagues who took the time to read our articles, videos etc and to decide to write an article about the truth. We still have a long way to go, but its a start.

More than three years after the US and its NATO allies unleashed an “intervention” and regime change in Libya, the US establishment admits they maybe have “got it wrong.” Naturally, there were many of us who were demonized endlessly for speaking out against that war, and against all those politicians, analysts, and “activists” on the left and right, who championed the “humanitarianism” of waging war on Libya. We were attacked as “soft on dictators,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “anti-Americans.” And yet, today it is our voices that still proclaim loudly the immorality and illegality of that war. Thankfully, it seems the establishment is beginning to hear us.

One of the most highly regarded politico-academic institutions in the US – the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University – has issued a report which undermines the established narrative of the war in Libya, laying bare the cold, hard reality of what Libya was at the outset of the war, what really happened in the early days, and what Libya has become today. Of course, responsibility for the tragic and lasting effects of that war should be laid at the feet of Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy, and the other participants, in addition to those media outlets and NGOs that deliberately spread lies about the reality on the ground in Libya. All must be held accountable.

Finally Seeing the Light?

The recent report, which is actually almost a year old, was written by Dr. Alan Kuperman, Associate Professor of Public Affairs at the University of Texas, Austin. Dr. Kuperman attempts to shed light on some of the key aspects of disinformation before and during the war in Libya. These important findings contradict every single justification for that war, from the lies and distortions of Samantha Power, Susan Rice, and Hillary Clinton, to the deluge of propaganda from so-called NGOs such as Human rights Watch and Amnesty International. By examining the obfuscations and outright lies told by these individuals and organs of soft power, Dr. Kuperman makes it quite clear that, just as with Iraq, the people of the United States (and much of the world) have been lied into yet another war.

One of the principal lies told about Libya and Gaddafi was the totally unsubstantiated claim of “massacres” by Gaddafi forces in Benghazi and a few other cities. This claim, perpetrated by Human Rights Watch among others, was repeated ad nauseam by every major media outlet. As Dr. Kuperman writes:

Contrary to Western media reports, Qaddafi did not initiate Libya’s violence by targeting peaceful protesters. The United Nations and Amnesty International have documented that in all four Libyan cities initially consumed by civil conflict in mid-February 2011—Benghazi, Al Bayda, Tripoli, and Misurata—violence was actually initiated by the protesters. The government responded to the rebels militarily but never intentionally targeted civilians or resorted to “indiscriminate” force, as Western media clai med. Early press accounts exaggerated the death toll by a factor of ten, citing “more than 2,000 deaths” in Benghazi during the initial days of the uprising, whereas Human Rights Watch (HRW) later documented only 233 deaths across all of Libya in that period.

These are indeed significant facts that merit further examination as they completely contradict the standard narrative of the war in Libya and, most importantly, the justifications for it. First and foremost is the question of who initiated violence. The talking points in Western media all through early 2011 held that Gaddafi was “murdering his own people,” and that this justified a humanitarian intervention, to “help the people of Benghazi.” However, the hitherto suppressed truth is that it was the violent “protesters” (who should rightly be referred to as terrorists within the protests) who actually initiated the violence, using protesters as human shields.

Secondly, the notion that Gaddafi’s forces intentionally targeted civilians has been thoroughly debunked. Quite the contrary, the evidence now shows that Gaddafi went to great lengths to make sure that no civilians were harmed in the counter-terrorism operation as can be evidenced by the fact that “Qaddafi avoided targeting civilians…HRW reports that of the 949 people wounded [in Misrata] in the rebellion’s initial seven weeks, only 30 were women or children, meaning that Qaddafi’s forces focused narrowly on combatants.” Rather than ordering the wanton killing of civilians, Gaddafi attempted to maintain discipline among his forces such that they could stamp out insurgency with as little collateral damage as possible.

Third is the simple fact that all death tolls reported by the media leading up to the war were not only inaccurate, but wildly exaggerated beyond the parameters of “margin of error.” In fact, by overestimating the death toll by a factor of ten, Human Rights Watch consciously played the part of public relations clearinghouse for US-NATO. Of course, Human Rights Watch, long since understood to be very cozy with the State Department, Pentagon and CIA, has become increasingly discredited in the eyes of serious human rights investigators and activists. The role of HRW in Libya exposed the organization in ways it had never been exposed before – as an organ of US soft power projection, working tirelessly to justify on humanitarian grounds what is undoubtedly a nakedly imperialist war.

Dr. Kuperman also points out another key aspect of the Western narrative which is a complete fiction, namely that US-NATO’s goal in waging the war was not regime change, but the protecting of civilians. As Kuperman writes:

The conventional wisdom is also wrong in asserting that NATO’s main goal in Libya was to protect civilians. Evidence reveals that NATO’s primary aim was to overthrow Qaddafi’s regime, even at the expense of increasing the harm to Libyans. NATO attacked Libyan forces indiscriminately, including some in retreat and others in Qaddafi’s hometown of Sirte, where they posed no threat to civilians. Moreover, NATO continued to aid the rebels even when they repeatedly rejected government cease-fire offers that could have ended the violence and spared civilians. Such military assistance included weapons, training, and covert deployment of hundreds of troops from Qatar, eventually enabling the rebels to capture and summarily execute Qaddafi and seize power in October 2011.

Indeed, the US and its allies abandoned the “protection of civilians” justification almost as soon as UNSC Resolution 1973 was passed, authorizing merely a No Fly Zone in Libya which the NATO forces took as a de facto authorization for total war. As Dr. Kuperman describes, NATO forces were clearly engaged in an air war to destroy the military and political institutions of the Gaddafi government, rather than simply protecting civilians and providing support to rebels. Indeed, the NATO forces became the primary driver of the campaign against Gaddafi, allowing the rebels to take territory and, I might add, carry out their massacres of civilians.

bp2Even Human Rights Watch, which vigorously suppressed the truth about ethnic cleansing carried out against black Libyans while it was happening, was forced to admit crimes against humanity in Libya, specifically the forced displacement of the Tawergha ethnic group. Naturally, these revelations came much too late to save the many innocent black Libyans, particularly in the Fezzan province, who were slaughtered by the rebels backed by US-NATO.

Kuperman’s report also highlights a number of other disastrous effects of the US-NATO war on Libya, including the civil war in Mali, the proliferation of weapons to terrorist groups throughout North Africa, and the general chaos and breakdown of all political, economic, and social institutions in Libya. Additionally, Kuperman notes that the US-NATO war prolonged significantly the war. He writes:

When NATO intervened in mid-March 2011, Qaddafi already had regained control of most of Libya, while the rebels were retreating rapidly toward Egypt. Thus, the conflict was about to end, barely six weeks after it started, at a toll of about 1,000 dead, including soldiers, rebels, and civilians caught in the crossfire. By intervening, NATO enabled the rebels to resume their attack, which prolonged the war for another seven months and caused at least 7,000 more deaths. ****(unfortunately it was not 7,000 deaths the number is a lot bigger to even for someone to grasp it. In these eight months the death toll arrived over 100 thousand people including women and children.)

This is a critical point to highlight. Even by the western investigation number of 7,000 – a gross underestimation in my view, the death toll is likely much higher – the US-NATO war led directly to at least 6,000 additional deaths in Libya. Far from “protecting civilians,” it seems US-NATO was too busy killing them.

While noting some of the critical points, Kuperman’s report also leaves out a number of other shameful outcomes of the war including the deliberate destruction of critical infrastructure (including the Great Man Made River Project), the oppression of women whose rights were protected under Gaddafi, the displacement of many black Libyans and Africans from other neighboring countries who had taken refuge and found employment in Gaddafi’s Libya, and many other deeply troubling developments.

Who Should Pay?

Because the entire narrative of the Libya war has been shown to be a fabrication of the State Department, CIA, International Criminal Court, NGOs and other appendages of US hard and soft power, the question of guilt and culpability comes into play. The United States, along with its allies, has been howling for Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, held illegally by the Zintan militia since 2011, to be taken to the International Criminal Court to be tried for war crimes. Now that both mainstream and non-mainstream, western and non-western sources have emerged to challenge this narrative, it’s time we start asking who in the West should be held to account.

First among the criminals must be high-ranking officials in the Obama administration, including former Secretary of State Hillary “We Came, We Saw, He Died” Clinton, and President Obama himself. Not only have they, and their subordinates, blatantly fabricated intelligence leading to an aggressive war (a crime against peace, the most serious of the Nuremburg charges), they deliberately misled the world as to the nature of their operation in Libya. Russia and China certainly feel betrayed by the US and its lies in the UN Security Council. But this is merely the tip of the iceberg.

What price should be paid by media organizations and NGOs deliberately spreading misinformation? Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International should face serious investigations into criminal negligence, or at least gross misconduct, in terms of their dissemination of lies – lies which were used as the prime justification for the war in terms of how it was sold to the people. Is it a crime to inflate by 1000% casualty figures, the end result of which is a justification for war? If not, it should be, as without such propaganda, the war could never have been sold to the public.

Media organizations, especially some ostensibly on the Left, should also be held to account for their misinformation and disinformation. Democracy Now is at the top of the list of guilty organizations. As Bruce Dixon, Managing Editor of Black Agenda Report, wrote at the height of the war:

So like every other Western reporter, Anjali Kamat [Democracy Now’s Libya correspondent] never saw any “mercenaries,” just their oversized bullets. She never saw any mass graves of the hundreds or thousands allegedly killed by Qaddafi’s “heavy machine gun fire” either, or that would be on Democracy Now too. It’s not. Nobody’s located the thousands of wounded survivors either, that must have been the result of shooting into crowds killing hundreds of people, and none of this has stopped Democracy Now from carrying the story just like Fox News or CNN or MSNBC…Something is really wrong with this picture. We have to wonder whether, at least as far as the war in Libya goes, whether Democracy Now is simply feeding us the line of corporate media, the Pentagon and the State Department rather than fulfilling the role of unembedded, independent journalists.

As Dixon points out, Democracy Now exhibited at the very least poor journalistic practice, and at worst, served as the left flank of the imperial propaganda machine. By faithfully reporting the “facts”, which have now been utterly discredited, Kamat and Democracy Now primed the pump of left progressive support for “humanitarian” war.

Of course, Democracy Now is not the only outlet that should be held responsible. All major media in the US obviously toed the US line on Libya. So too did Al Jazeera, the Qatari-owned news outlet which gained notoriety during the Bush years as a news outlet hostile to US policy in Iraq. However, by the time of the war in Libya, Al Jazeera had purged its staff of anyone truly critical of US foreign policy, particularly as it pertained to the “Arab Spring” narrative. In fact, insiders have told me that a wave of resignations, forced resignations, and firings at Al Jazeera coincided with the refusal by some of the more principled journalists to suppress the truth of what was happening in Libya. It would seem then that, rather than reporting the news, Al Jazeera, like its western counterparts, was more interested in serving power than challenging it.

In fact, Al Jazeera was the first news organization to report, and repeat ad nauseam, the lie that Gaddafi’s soldiers were systematically raping women in Benghazi, and that they had been issued Viagra by their commanding officers. This claim, repeated by Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay, and many others has since been debunked, with absolutely zero evidence ever surfacing to substantiate the allegation. And yet, it was one of the principal claims used to justify the indictment issued by Luis Moreno-Ocampo as head of the International Criminal Court. This fact, among many others, shows how the irresponsibility of Al Jazeera, and nearly every other journalistic and human rights organization, led directly to the war in Libya.

Sadly, it is unlikely that any of the parties responsible for the criminal and shameful war on Libya will ever be held to account for their crimes in a courtroom. However, they can be held to account in the court of public opinion. Their institutions must be discredited. Their names and faces must be known and repeated the world over. They all share responsibility for the misery inflicted on the innocent people of Libya. And we who have stood against this war from the beginning, we have been vindicated. Unfortunately, there is no solace to be found in a Libyan graveyard.

The 4 Deeper Truths about Benghazi and Libya


The 4 Deeper Truths about Benghazi and Libya

 

Democrats and Republicans Are Both Missing the Big Picture On Benghazi and Libya

Democrats and Republicans have very different views about Benghazi, Libya.

The 4 Deeper Truths about Benghazi and Libya 070514ben

Image: Clinton & Obama (YouTube).

Republicans say the Obama administration is to blame for the death of Ambassador Stevens – and have created a special committee to investigate Benghazi – while Democrats by and large say that the is nothing but politics.

The truth is bigger than either side is admitting …

First, Pulitzer prize winning reporter Seymour Hersh – who broke the story of the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam under Nixon and the torture scandal under Bush – says that Benghazi was really a CIA outpost for running weapons capture from Libya after Gaddaffi was overthrown into Syria … approved on a bipartisan basis by both Democrats and Republicans.

Second, it has been confirmed that the U.S. backed Al Qaeda terrorists in Libya so that they would overthrow Gaddaffi.

Third, as we noted right after Gaddaffi fell, the Obama administration’s stated reason for going into Libya makes no sense. Now, RAND Corporation political scientists theorize that Obama might have decided to bomb Libya – not for any reason having to do with Libya or Gaddaffi themselves – but rather “to keep the Arab Spring going“.

The U.S. ousted Gaddaffi and then left, and Libya has now descended into chaos.

The Washington Post argues that America fighting the Libyan war is a bigger scandal than Benghazi itself:

Republicans have a potentially strong case to make against the Obama administration’s handling of Libya, as the latest political developments there underline. On Sunday, a disputed vote in parliament led to the swearing-in of a new prime minister — the sixth since former dictator Moammar Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011 with the help of U.S. and NATO air forces. The new leader, an Islamist from the city of Misurata, replaced pro-Western prime minister Ali Zeidan, who was driven out of the country this year after his government proved unable to stop a militia from filling a tanker with stolen oil.

From the safety of Europe, Mr. Zeidan conceded what was obvious all along: Libya’s post-Gaddafi government has no army and no way of establishing its authority over the hundreds of militias that sprang up in the vacuum that followed the revolution. Libya has fragmented into fiefdoms, its oil industry is virtually paralyzed, massive traffic in illegal weapons is supplying militants around the region and extremist groups such as Ansar al-Sharia, which participated in the Sept. 11, 2012, assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, are unchecked.


The Obama administration and its NATO allies bear responsibility for this mess because, having intervened to help rebels overthrow Gaddafi, they then swiftly exited without making a serious effort to help Libyans establish security and build a new political order. Congress might usefully probe why the administration allowed a country in which it initiated military operations to slide into chaos.

Fourth, the Libya war – just like the Iraq war – was illegal, as noted in the New York Times,Washington PostHuffington PostWashington TimesGuardianSalon, and elsewhere.

Those are four the deeper stories about Benghazi and Libya which neither the Democrats or Republicans are talking about …

Eyes for Peace: “The NATO bombing killed 2% of the population in Libya” May 17, 2012


Eyes for Peace: “The NATO bombing killed 2% of the population in Libya”

May 17, 2012

The advocacy organization Human Rights Human Rights Watch calls for NATO to investigate the deaths of at least 72 civilians in the bombing of the Alliance during the military operation in Libya in 2011.

However, some NGOs estimate that the death toll may reach 2% of the civilian population. In a recent report, Human Rights Watch (HRW) analyzes eight air strikes carried out by the Allies in Libya and says that according to his “field research” and “interviews with witnesses and local residents,” there were 72 civilian casualties , including 20 women and 24 children.

However, NATO rejects the allegations and claims that only carried out attacks on military regime Muammar Gaddafi , according to statements by Oana Lungescu, spokesman for the Alliance.

For his part, counsel Purification González, International Collective Eye for Peace, believes that if the Alliance is not going to investigate the attacks is because he fears could come to light more cases. The NATO bombing “have killed almost 2% of the civilian population” in Libya, that is, about 60,000 people, according to the Peace Eye citing local sources. ****(till today its more than 2% with the every day killing, bombing and death by torture we have arrived to 500.000 people who have been killed from both sides)

The military campaign deployed by NATO in Libya between March and October 2011 was authorized by a resolution of the Security Council of the United Nations in order to protect civilians against armed conflict between the regime of then-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and the rebels.

However, subsequently the NATO bombing contributed to the capture, lynching and murder without trial of Gaddafi and some of his relatives. But behind international intervention there were also economic interests , according Purification González.
“Large corporations are using NATO governments through wars and to plunder the resources, in this case to keep the oil and strategically positioned for future wars and to support Israel,” says the lawyer.

UN cornered by the vast evidence of torture and unpunished murders, today acknowledged the existence of serious problems in governance, security and human rights in Libya, including the practice of torture and deaths in secret detention centers.
Confirmation of these violations was presented by the special UN envoy to Libya, Ian Martin, in a report to the Security Council devoted to analyzing the situation in the Arab country.
The official said that the expectation of rapid changes created tension in the political system and led to disappointment at the lack of progress five months after the coming to power of the current government.
In response, Martin urged the authorities to show tangible progress in the short-term, even before the next general elections and the formation of the new administration.
As for the secret prisons, the UN envoy hypocritically estimated four thousand in the number of people held by terrorist groups serving NATO-NTC involved, along with NATO, in the coup against the Libyan government and the Assassination against Muammar Gaddafi.
