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 trialof 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.
Also confirmed that the abuse and torture continue as a common practice in those facilities, particularly in an existing in Misrata, where reported deaths from this cause, as well as other centers in Tripoli, Zawiya and Zintan.
Martin also warned about the tension in different parts of the country and explained various armed clashes in Sabha in March with the death of 150 people and 500 wounded, and others in the southwestern part of Libyan territory, in April.

*****RAND American Research invites Libya’s international partners to be ready for the possible deployment of a peace force
Called the report of the Rand Corporation of America Research Libya’s international partners to be ready for the possible deployment of a peace force in Libya, saying that “the possibility of civil war is not far off,unfortunately, although it can still be avoided through the correct approach and something out of luck.”
It also said the report – prepared by researchers Christopher Tchivis and Jeffrey Martini“The best option is to take the United Nations peacekeeping mission, but if prevented differences in the Security Council of the deployment of the force, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the European Union they will have to act independently, It is better to have it as well as the Gulf Cooperation Council and the Arab League. ”
He added that he “can external actors to enhance security in Libya, but cost much more than it seems on what the international community can fill it now .. It can also impose security if one of the armed groups took control of the rest, but this will not come until after the civil conflict, This would be a cure worse than the status quo.“Instead, it could some groups in Libya to reach a political consensus relieves tension and includes specific steps to improve security.
He said the report of the institution said that “the United States and its allies reconciling strategy together to ensure that it does not slip Libya to violence, and that turned into a haven for jihadi groups stone’s throw from Europe, would be a major problem for the West,” noting that terrorist violence escalating in Libya would have a chilling effect the Sahel region.
The report considered that “as well as its direct impact on the verdict, the state of insecurity and also put the government in front of challenges far exceed their capabilities, and created more concern for the government is in fact prey to the pressure.”
He believed that the establishment of graded stability under a representative government and a constitutional system will enable the benefits of sustained energy and other resources in Libya, which will enhance the region in general, warning of the need to step up the government and its international partners of their efforts to control the security situation in Libya through steps such as disarmament and demobilization and reintegration.
The report noted that, “Despite the current challenges, the Libya continue to enjoy several advantages compared to other communities living post-conflict situations, which enhances the chances of improving the situation .. as the size of the population relatively small reason for optimism, as many Libyans generally remain in their horizons closer to the Americans, despite their reluctance year of foreign influence. “

Can Washington Overthrow Three Governments at the Same Time?
By Thierry Meyssan
The power of a state is measured by its ability to defend itself and to attack on one or more fronts. In this context, Washington is trying for the first time to show it can overthrow three governments simultaneously: Syria, Ukraine and Venezuela. If it succeeds, no government would be henceforth able to resist it.
Washington, which failed in 2011 to bomb Libya and Syria simultaneously, is now engaged in a new demonstration of its strength: organizing regime change in three states at the same time, in different regions of the world: Syria (CentCom), Ukraine (EuCom) and Venezuela (SouthCom).
To do this, President Obama has mobilized almost the entireNational Security Council team.
First, Advisor Susan Rice and Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power. These two women are champions of “democratic” talk. They have for many years specialized in advocating interference in the internal affairs of other countries under the pretext of preventing genocide. But behind this generous rhetoric, they couldn’t care less about non-US lives as shown by Ms. Power during the chemical weapons crisis in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta. The ambassador, who was aware of the innocence of the Syrian authorities, had gone to Europe with her husband to attend a film festival dedicated to Charlie Chaplin, while her government denounced a crime against humanity, the responsibility for which was placed upon President al Assad.
Then, the three regional co-ordinators:Philip Gordon ( Middle East and North Africa ), Karen Donfried (Europe and Eurasia ) and Ricardo Zuñiga ( Latin America).
• Phil Gordon (personal friend and translator of Nicolas Sarkozy) organized the sabotage of the Geneva 2 Peace Conference as long as the Palestinian issue is not settled to the U.S. liking. During the second session of the conference, while John Kerry spoke of peace, Gordon met with the heads of Jordanian, Qatari , Saudi and Turkish intelligence services in Washington to prepare for yet another attack. The plotters have gathered an army of 13,000 men, of whom only 1,000 were given brief military training, to drive tanks and take Damascus. The problem is that the column may be destroyed by the Syrian Army before arriving in the capital. But they fail to agree on how to defend it without distributing anti-aircraft weapons that could later be used against Israel.
• Karen Donfried is the former national intelligence officer for Europe. She has long led the German Marshall Fund in Berlin. Today, she manipulates the European Union to hide Washington interventionism in Ukraine.Despite the leak of a phone conversation involving Ambassador Victoria Nuland, she succeeded in convincing Europeans that the opposition in Kiev wanted to join them and was fighting for democracy. Nonetheless, more than half of the Maidan rioters are members of the Nazi party and brandish portraits of collaborator Stepan Bandera.
• Finally, Ricardo Zuñiga is the grandson of the namesake President of the National Party of Honduras who organized the coups of 1963 and 1972 in favor of General López Arellano. He directed the CIA station in Havana where he recruited and financed agents to form opposition to Fidel Castro.He mobilized the extreme Trotskyist Venezuelan left to overthrow President Nicolás Maduro, accused of being a Stalinist.
The whole process is hyped under the leadership of one Dan Rhodes. This propaganda specialist has already written the official version of September 11, 2001, drafting the report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry. He managed to remove all traces of the military coup (power was removed from the hands of George W. Bush at about 10am and it was returned that evening; all the members of his cabinet and those of Congress were placed in secure bunkers “to ensure their safety”) so that we remember only the attacks.
In all three cases, the U.S. narrative is based on the same principles: accuse governments of killing their own citizens, qualify opponents as ’democratic’; impose sanctions against the “murderers” and ultimately operate coups.
Each time, the movement begins with a demonstration during which peaceful opponents are killed, and where both sides accuse each other of violence. In fact U.S. or NATO special forces placed on rooftops shoot at both the crowd and the police. This was the case in Daraa (Syria) ***( in Benghazi (Libya)) in 2011, Kiev (Ukraine) and Caracas (Venezuela) this week. Alas for bad luck:autopsies in Venezuela show that two victims, one opponent and one pro-government, were killed by the same weapon.
Qualifying opponents as democratic activists is a simple game of rhetoric. In Syria, they are Takfirists supported by the worst dictatorship in the world, Saudi Arabia. In Ukraine, a few sincere pro-Europeans surrounded by many Nazis. In Venezuela, young Trotskyists from good families surrounded by goon squads. Everywhere the false U.S. opponent, John McCain, brings his support to true and false on site opponents.
Support for opponents rests with the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). This agency of the U.S. government falsely presents itself as an NGO funded by Congress. But it was created byPresident Ronald Reagan, in association with Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. It is headed by the neoconservative Carl Gershman and the daughter of General Alexander Haig (former Supreme Commander of NATO, then Secretary of State ), Barbara Haig. This is the NED (actually the State Department), which employs the “opposition” senator John McCain.
To this operating group, you must add the Albert Einstein Institute, an “NGO” funded by NATO. Created by Gene Sharp, it trained professional agitators from two bases: Serbia (Canvas) and Qatar (Academy of currency).
In all cases, Susan Rice and Samantha Power take on airs of outrage before imposing penalties, soon echoed by the European Union, while they are in fact the sponsors of the violence.
It remains to be seen whether the coups will be successful. Which is far from being certain.
Washington is thus attempting to show the world it is still the master. To be more sure of itself, it launched the Ukrainian and Venezuelan operations during the Olympic Games in Sochi. It was certain that Russia would not move for fear of having its party upset by Islamist attacks. But Sochi ended this weekend. Now it’s Moscow’s turn to play.
Closed the Emergency Hospital until Further Notice.
Hospital announced the closure of educational corner ambulance and emergency department at the hospital until further notice and the process of closing the section came after an attack by gunmen last night on the hospital staff for reasons that are not clear. Informed sources said that the closure period may last section, this time for a longer period. The emergency department and hospital emergency corner educational closed more than once earlier for the same reasons.

“Think of this book as your primer on war propaganda, deliberate media deception, hidden political and personal agendas, and finally, on what a set of politically powerful and well-connected people will do to a country when they have access to military power and the will to use it”.
So writes editor Cynthia McKinney at the start of this must-read, gripping collection of chapters by different authors, showing the world that the illegal war on Libya in 2011 was a war on civilians – the very people the West claimed to be protecting. A set-up like the Iraq war – but far less publicised.
Just like the Israeli-led false flag ‘Operation Trojan’ project of 1986 that led Libya to be bombed then in an attempt to murder its leader, Muammar Qadhafi, so the latter was again framed in 2011.
America’s real aims, she continues, were to ‘clean up’ the old pro-Soviet regimes of Iraq, Libya and Syria. To attack and destroy the SEVEN countries of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran. And The Project For The New American Century – as desired by Wolfowitz, Cheney, and Rumsfeld etc. – to destabilise the Middle East and turn it upside down.
McKinney has been told that the US keeps mercenary forces at an offshore base near the Libya-Tunisia border – which are carrying out joint operations with al-Qaeda in Eastern Libya. And that US forces operate in Tripoli under the protection of al-Qaeda’s Abdulhakim Belhadj – where they control the shipping terminal and Mitiga Airport.
My own opinion is that America deliberately brought al-Qaeda to power in Libya – and is seeking to do the same in Syria – under the usual covert plot of publicly pretending to do otherwise. (Think CIA and their ‘war on drugs’). This will best continue America-‘israel’ plans for chaos across the Islamic world.
The chapter by Wayne Madsen poignantly describes the scene at the house of Qadhafi’s son, Saif al-Arab, hours after the latter was murdered here by a US warplane, along with a friend and three of Qadhafi’s grandchildren on 30th April 2011. No evidence of it being a ‘military compound’ was ever found.It was an attempt to kill Qadhafi himself – who had just left the building to tend to some animals just 500 feet away. Indeed, the book shows a photo of a traumatised gazelle wandering amongst the rubble. (McKinney later describes the scene too and the “shredded” children).
Madsen also writes how Bernard-Henri Levy, the Jewish French ‘philosopher’ (?!) was forging links with the rebels in Benghazi and then travelling to ‘israel’. Rebel support for ‘israel’ was a key demand in return for more support from Nato.
One of Nato’s first targets in Tripoli was the Office Of Investigation Of Corruption.The real reason several Qadhafi ministers defected to the rebels is because they were being investigated by the Libyan Government for fraud. (This was covered upby the Western media). The documents on corruption were backed up – but are now “in a safe location”.
Belhadj was issued with a false Libyan passport – showing him with a beard. Such a photo was not permitted by Qadhafi’s government.
Many rebels are al-Qaeda fighters released from Guantanamo Bay – armed with weapons not found in Libya’s stockpiles. Many weapons used by the rebels in 2011 came from a CIA-connected subsidiary. One rifle, used as standard by the rebels, only uses Nato standard rounds. This weapon was never used by the Libyan Army – which relied on Soviet weaponry. Rebels also used US-made machine-guns – again chambered for Nato rounds. (This proves Nato and Western media claims that the rebels only used weapons captured from Qadhafi forces were lies).
Rebels agreed to allow ‘israel’ to have a 30-year lease for a military base in East Libya – that will be used against the Egyptian military should there be any future ‘problems’.
Uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt were used to pretend Libya was a state rebelling too, but Madsen reminds us that an American diplomat was operating as a CIA agent in Libya in 2010 – forging links with a rebel ‘sleeper-cell’.
Madsen also claims that it has long been believed that Qadhafi’s former head of Libyan Intelligence, Musa Kusa, was a double agent for the CIA.
Shortly after the rebels seized Benghazi, they plundered Libya of its money. They emptied the entire Central Bank’s cash vault in the city – even hiring a professional safecracker from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to open the safe. The rebels now had 900 million Libyan dinars – stealing it from the Libyan people.
The next chapter contains the true scale of suffering, terror and death Nato unleashed on civilians in Tripoli, Zlitan etc. A testimony from one doctor is so harrowing that I defy any normal person to read it without feeling tears of anger. Children so frightened that they even contemplated suicide. And the other real scandal is of the media’s silence, its cover-up, and the way the people could not tell the world what was happening- and that many did not even know why they were being targeted just to get rid of their leader.
The chapter “Nato Bombs The Great Man-Made River”,by Mark Metcalfe, tells the fascinating story of “the eighth wonder of the world”; how Qadhafi installed clean water for all the Libyan people – a project now derailed after Nato targeted the civilian population by bombing the pipe-making plant at Brega – murdering six security guards.
The segment “Black Genocide In Libya”, by T-West, describes how the targeting of black people by the rebels in Libya was a deliberate fomenting of ethnic strife by Nato - in order to break up the country. With a Euro-centric central bank that ties into the stock exchange and America and European corporate banking headquarters in Qatar, and a small group of puppets of the more Arab-centric Eastern Libya controlling the oil.
The rebels have foisted the old monarchy’s flag and anthem on Libya– symbols that represent the British-ruled Libya of that time – so as to create a federal system that revives total European manipulation, with the Arab monarchies of Qatar, UAE, and Saudi Arabia underneath this.
A Libyan Army jet stolen by rebels was mistakenly shot down over Benghazi – by the rebels themselves– but the media used the situation to pretend the jet was Qadhafi attackingcivilians.
Western journalists reported how Libyan Army jet pilots were disobeying Qadhafi and missing targets so as to avoid civilians. But, in fact, the pilots had been ordered to drop bombs harmlessly in order to avoid casualties and act as a warning to rebels – (who were systematically attacking army and police posts). Qadhafi was not going to be baited into the mass-bloodshed the West wanted from him – so the West made it up anyway.
Controlled by Jews – the Sephardim wing of France and the Ashkenazim wing of the US – they influenced the output of Reuters, the Associated Press etc. 20% of the rebellion believed the liethat Qadhafi himself was a Jew!
But T-West’s chapter ultimately shows uswhat a traitor Obama has been to all black people – the very people who voted him into power believing he was an icon for their cause.
Stephen Lendman’s piece then excellently sets out the legal case for trying Nato for the war crimes of “daily civilian terror bombings to break their morale, cause panic, weaken their resistance, and inflict mass casualties of punishment” to “conquer, colonise, occupy, and plunder another vassal state”, with “humanitarian intervention” as “mere subterfuge”.
The next segment is by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya and is an exploration of the magnificent plans that Qadhafi had for the future – such as ridding the government of corruption, the Wealth Redistribution Fund for all Libyans,the United States Of Africa, and the South Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Sato) – to protect Africa and Latin America from Nato.
The West was horrified– and feared other populations would demand more fairness too.
Saif al-Islam put Mahmoud Jibril into the position of a virtual Prime Minister – controlled by the US and the EU. Jibril would open up Libya to foreign corporations to plunder, and privatisation and poverty in Libya.
Jibril met with Levy to discuss deposing Qadhafi – who was investigatingJibril for corruption. Jibril believed the Libyan people were not fit to govern themselves and that the ‘elite’ should always control the wealth of any nation.Jibril later fled to Cairoto meet the rebel ‘council’ leaders of both Libya and Syria.
Italy’s Prime Minister Berlusconi even admitted that Nato’s bombings werenotconducted as a result of a revolt against Qadhafi – but wereintended to cause a revolt against Qadhafi…
Another chapter by Nazemroaya explains the West and Israeli plots of reconfiguring the Middle East – by using wars as ‘creative destruction’ –deliberately targeting countries to create or exploit any religious differences or racial and ethno-linguistic tensions etc. Internal violence to bring countries to their knees and implement the doctrine of divide, rule and conquer.
This supports the Zionist’s ‘Yinon Plan’ – partitioning individual countries – both in North Africa, as well as around ‘israel’ – into smaller and weaker states. Iraq was the primary target (and we see it today falling into the pre-planned Sunni, Shi’a, and Kurdish entities)…
The break-up of Libya, Egypt, Lebanon and Syria are also part of the Plan (and we are already seeing at this moment how the created chaos has now taken hold in all four). The primary aim being to ensure that ‘israel’ has regional superiority. For the West, it continues the latter’s global empiric ambitions. Divided, exploited, colonised and dysfunctional societies – too weak to fight back against their oppressors and their puppet clients.
Other targets and victims of these same plots are Iran, Turkey, Somalia, Pakistan and Sudan (Sudan has, of course, already been divided into two warring separate countries).
After America invaded Iraq, Ariel Sharon told them to next attack Syria, Libya and Iran (and Tony Blair recently called Sharon ‘a man of peace’)!
The assassination of Rafik Hariri in Lebanon was used as part of the ‘israeli’ Plan to destabilise Syria. (I personally believe that Hariri’s death – and that of many innocent bystanders in the same massive car bombing – was a Mossad/CIA operation – designed to frame Assad’s Syria).
Nazemroaya continues that there are unknown snipers targeting Syrian civilians and army – to cause chaos and internal fighting. Christians are targeted by unknown groups. Most likely, the attacks include a coalition of US, French, Israeli, Jordanian, Turkish, Saudi, and Gulf Arab forces -working with some Syrians on the inside.
This is part of a reign of terror that they are trying to spread in Syria – as they did in Libya.
A Christian exodus is being planned for the Middle East, he concludes. An Islamic world free of Christians and Jews – who the Muslims have historically peacefully co-existed with – is the desired outcome. This would replenish the Christian population of the EU – and be used to support a new Crusade. The precursor to The Clash Of Civilisations…
Dr. Christof Lehman’s chapter is next and he explains that the US uses al-Qaeda as either an enemy or an ally – depending on what role suits its agenda at the time.
He also explains the evil hold that France has over Africa. Removing leaders like Qadhafi and Gbagbo (Ivory Coast) because they dared to plan to get rid of the African franc currency. This is because the African franc is one of the biggest sources of income for France. Worse still, France not only controls the value of it, but also has absolute control over no less than EIGHT African countries’ economies…Shockingly, 85% of all foreign exchange reserves of these eight states are 100% under the control of theFrench treasury!
Qadhafi lobbied to help the people of these eight countries to free themselves from France’s enslavement and impoverishment of them.
France viewed him as the obstacle to even more French colonial expansion in North Africa.
My favourite chapter is by an outstanding journalist, Keith Harmon Snow – whose knowledge and passion for the subject of Africa and the West’s utter hypocrisy in dealing with it is breathtaking.
He, like other parts of the book, exposes the media’s manipulation of the facts of the situation in Libya in 2011: “Real facts are hidden behindthese facades created through well-planned and coordinated psychological operations, like the one that played out in the media over the invasion of Libya. What the capitalist system seeks to hide are the Western mafias and their elite kingpins who are perpetuating the shock doctrines of disaster capitalism. This is what happened in Libya”.
Snow deliciously debunks the myths of the West’s propaganda against Qadhafi’s “Green Book” philosophy: “No wonder the elites ruining the world don’t want you to read the Green Book, they might be prone to the arising of dangerous thoughts such as these that criticise the system of oppression that now threatens all life on planet Earth”.
Snow is referring to Qadhafi exposing how Western ‘democracy’ is, in fact, based on propaganda, monopolisation and manipulation etc. for the benefit of only the rich elites.
Snow acknowledges the repression practiced by Qadhafi’s government in Libya – but reminds us that it was only because Libya faced a constant barrage of coups, dirty tricks, undermining, infiltration and assassination – by Western powers and their agents. And that Qadhafi benefited the Libyan people far more than the Western regimes have done for their own populations:“The faults of the Libyan regime pale in comparison to the faults of foreign regimes in the countries that persecuted Libya”, as Western governments enslave and repress their people while serving private elites for corporate profit.
But Snow’s piece mainly explores the wars in Africa – secretly waged by ‘israel’ and the West- that have led to the loss of many millions of lives.
He reminds us that ‘israel’ trained Idi Amin – before Britain brought him to power by force in Uganda.(Later, he turned on ‘israel’ and so the West turned on him). Under the current dictator, Yoweri Museveni, Uganda was used as a base for the 1996 invasion of what is now DR Congo. It has also been used for the ‘israel’ and Nato invasion of Sudan (now Sudan and South Sudan) – a war that was, and still is today, primarily caused and maintained by ‘israel’, America, Canada, France and Britain.
Israel’s shipment of tanks for the horror of the war crimes in Darfur – via Uganda – was helped by America – and utterly covered up by the Western media. (Has anyone ever toldGeorge Clooney about this)?!
In 2011, Qadhafi was interviewed and demonised by ‘journalist’Christiane Amanpour – but she was, in fact, a (Zionist) covert agent for the US State Department. She had also covered up the US’s involvement in DR Congo and Rwanda.US ‘Special Forces’ were on the ground shelling refugee camps and slaughtering innocent people – as part of the fuelling of the Tutsi and Hutu genocide wars that served the West’s interests (while at home, Western leaders pretend to bleat about “Responsibility to Protect” these “tragedies” from happening again)…
Ethiopia’s leader, Meles Zenawi, has been conducting genocide against his own people for years, but as a puppet of the West, the latter says nothing. Ethiopia provides a base for covert Western military operations against Somalia, Sudan and even Syria.
African mercenaries – trained by America since 2004/2009 – in Mauritania, Chad, Niger and Nigeria were used as death squads to invadeLibya in 2011 (under the guise of being ‘freedom fighters’ from Libya itself).
Snow asks why is Qadhafi a notorious household name in the West, when genuine despots such as the following are not?“Daniel Arap Moi, Gen. Gnassingbe Eyadema, Paul Biya, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo, Lt. Jerry John Rawlings, and Omar Bongo”. (Add Museveni, Zenawi and Paul Kagame too).
Why is it never said that it is the Western wars of annihilation that go on in Somalia – involving Ugandan troops trained by US ‘Special Forces’– as well as Darfur, Rwanda, DR Congo, Sudan and Central Africa etc?
While Qadhafi undoubtedly aided many noble liberation movements, Snow also raises interesting questions about some of the people Qadhafi himself armed and his reasons for doing so – but that is a whole other book!
The final chapter is a transcript of Qadhafi’s speech to the General Assembly of the United Nations on September 23rd 2009.
It is chilling reading – as, retrospectively, its context is forever coloured by the events that subsequently occurred.
Qadhafi speaks of wars that benefit only the few;military interventions of aggression and hostile acts by those with Power Of Veto. He calls the UN Security Council the “Terror Council” – for its treatment of the Third World – using terror, intimidation and sanctions to serve its own interests:“Wars of aggression waged against us by superpowers”, “that have violated the sovereignty of independent states. It has led to war crimes and genocide…in violation of the Charter of the United Nations”.
He speaks of Africa “colonised, isolated and persecuted, and its rights usurped. Its people enslaved and treated like animals and its territory colonised and placed under trusteeship”. “How can we feel safe”? “Can we trust the Security Council or not”?
Conversely, he calls Barack Obama a “son of Africa” and “our son”. But did he envisage really that Libya would be attacked? And, if so, that it would not be Obama who would be the one to do it?
Completely deluded (?) about Obama’s true evil nature (“I am very good at killing people”, Obama informed us in 2013), Qadhafi calls Obama’s election win “a wonderful thing”, that Obama will be “a temporary relief for the next four or eight years”. “We would be content if Obama could remain President of the US forever”, he unwittingly (?) extols…
Even worse, he says Obama “spoke truly when he said that democracy cannot be imposed from the outside”.
Yes, this statement is true but not Obama’s belief in it!
I wish that I could force every Westerner to read this magnificent book – then maybe the real revolution will begin…
I will end my review with the final line of Qadhafi’s speech:
