Norway Didn't Know Much About Libya Yet Helped Bomb It Into Chaos, State Report Finds

"A Norweigian state report says the officials 'had very limited knowledge' of what was going on in Libya, but promptly decided to join the US-led intervention, turning the once thriving North African nation into a terrorist hotbed..."

 

Norway Report: 'Ill Informed' Decision Over Libya Bombing in 2011 (and vid)

https://youtu.be/ZAzSS4yGnZ0

"There are no written sources that before deciding to send warplanes to Libya the government assessed the type of conflict Norway was taking part in."

In Canada, our own parliamentary war-criminals can't claim such ignorance. Just murderous complicity with a western imperial agenda. Perhaps that's why in Canada, no such report will ever be produced.

"We did get, as others have noted, full, frank, open briefings from our very professional diplomatic and military sources to keep us abreast of the state of play and the activities in Libya that required our knowledge and understanding in order for us to form our opinions..."

Bombing Libya: The Origins of Europe's Immigration Crisis

https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/09/25/bombing-libya-the-origins-of-eur...

"...After the US and [Canada-led] NATO began to bomb Libya in March 2011 - almost daily for more than six months - to overthrow the government of Muammar Gaddafi (with the completely phony excuse that Gaddafi was about to invade Benghazi, the Libyan center of his opponents, and so the US and NATO were thus saving the people of that city from a massacre),  the Libyan leader declared:

'Now listen you people of NATO. You're bombing a wall ,which stood in the way of African migration to Europe and in the way of Al Qaeda terrorists. This was was Libya. You're breaking it. You're idiots and you will burn in Hell for thousands of migrants from Africa!'

Remember also that Libya was a secular society, like Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, all destroyed by America while supplying Saudi Arabia and various factions of Al Qaeda. It's these countries that have principally overrun Europe with refugees..."

Libyan National Oil Corporation Declares 'State of Emergency' After Haftar's Forces Close Eastern Oil Ports

https://on.rt.com/a9ad

"Libya's national oil company has declared a 'state of emergency' after exports of its oil from the ports in the eastern part of the country were blocked by forces loyal to the Libyan National Army's General Khalifa Haftar. The move makes any export of oil from Libya impossible, the company then warned, adding that it would lead to losses in crude oil production amounting to 800,000 barrels per day, as well as financial losses estimated at about $55 million.

The closure of the ports has been imposed just a day ahead of the next Libya peace summit, due to be held this weekend in Berlin and expected to be attended by representatives of major global powers and Libya's rival camps. The UN Support Mission in Libya has expressed its 'deep concern' over the disruption of oil production. UN officials warned about 'devastating consquences' such a move would have for the nation's economy and for its people..."

As Guns Fall Silent in Libya, the Qaddafi Regime Seeks a Return

https://twitter.com/MaxAbrams/status/1300394175377047552

"How dare Libyans not appreciate what the international community did for them. Gaddafi was toppled for them! Sure, killing him stoked a civil war, slave trade and refugee problem while pumping extremists into other countries but liberalism's heart is so pure."

"The future of Libya now belongs to all LIbyans...Our troops have done a wonderful job in Libya."

On Target: Putting War Crimes in Perspective

http://espritdecorps.ca/on-target-4/on-target-putting-war-crimes-in-pers...

"...The UN never authorized NATO to drop bombs and enage in combat yet that is exactly what they began doing immediately. The NATO allied task force was commanded by Canadian Lieutenant-General Charles Bouchard. On the diplomatic front the international effort to oust Gadhafi was spearheaded by Canada's foreign minister John Baird. Despite deploying the most sophisticated aerial arsenal ever seen, NATO's Libyan rebel allies [Al Qaeda] took nearly 10 months to defeat the Gadhafi loyalists.

It was NATO airstrikes [targeted by Canada's Bouchard] that allowed the Libyan rebels to capture Gadhafi and brutally murder him on the streets of Sirte on October 20, 2011. Canada celebrated the war triumph with a victory parade in Parliament Hill, the only NATO ally to do so. The UK at least had the courage to examine their moral failings in Iraq with the commission of the Chilcot Inquiry. Perhaps it is time for Canada to do the same with our role in the Libya intervention in 2011. It was unnecessary and undermined the UN authority. It too has an incalculable magnitude in terms of criminal liability as the killing and chaos continue to this day."
