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.

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.

Can Washington Overthrow Three Governments at the Same Time?


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 entire National 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 by President 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.

Libya closes airport after rockets hit runway


Libya closes airport after rockets hit runway

 

TRIPOLI: Libyan authorities closed the airport in the capital Tripoli on Friday after rockets hit a runway on Friday, officials said. “Flights were halted but the airport has been reopened using a second runway,” a spokesman for the transport ministry told a reporter visiting the airport.

But the reporter saw no planes taking off or landing. 

“We cancelled all flights,” said the country head of a foreign airline with several daily flights to Tripoli.

Nasser El Kerewi, head of the Tripoli security and stability committee, said it was not known who was behind the Friday attack.

“Two rockets exploded on the main runway of the airport, causing damage. For security reasons, flights were suspended until further notice,” the source said on condition of anonymity. 

The blasts took place at around 05:00am (0300 GMT), at a time when the day’s inbound and outbound traffic had yet to begin. 

An airline representative in the capital said that the authorities had informed firms operating at the airport that flights would remain suspended until 1030 GMT on Saturday.

Maintenance teams were clearing the first runway of debris, the spokesman said, adding it was unclear who had fired the rockets which landed at dawn. 

Gunfire could be heard during the night in the capital, residents said.

Libya’s government struggles with militias that helped overthrow Muammar Qadhafi in 2011 but which have kept their guns to demand power, oil wealth and influence. 

On Thursday, however, the government announced it was mobilising its security forces after acknowledging for the first time that “terrorist groups” were behind dozens of attacks against security services and Westerners. ****(now the nationalists are called “terrorist groups” really? While Alqaeda, Alsharia, Muslimbrotherhood, L.I.F.G. and other extremist groups are not “TERRORIST GROUPS”?)

“The nation finds itself in a confrontation with terrorist groups, and it falls upon the government to mobilize its military and security forces to fight this scourge,” said a statement published on the government’s website.

“There will be no place for terrorism in Libya and Libyans must be prepared for such a battle in terms of caution, awareness and sacrifice,” said the statement.

An overnight government statement called on “the international community and in particular the United Nations to provide the necessary support to eradicate terrorism in Libyan cities.”

The government said “the cities of Benghazi, Derna and Sirte and others are facing a terrorist war carried out by Libyan and foreign elements with hostile intentions.” ****(please in the above cities are Nationalists Revolutionaries who are fighting the EXTREMIST NATO PUPPET GOVERNMENT)
