Rosie Di Manno Interviews Canada's NATO Butcher of Libya - The Great Man Himself

http://www.thestar.com/news/world/article/1050654--eyes-of-the-world-wer...

"Technically, if we'd run this [campaign] like Afghanistan, we wouldn't have achieved the status that we have today."

Lt. Gen. Charles 'The Butcher' Bouchard. Kills better than he lies.

Here is the Butcher with one of NATO and the IDF's big lies. Bolding added.

Quote:

“There was a soccer game going on right beside Bab al-Aziziya, next to two air defence systems. Kids playing — the human shield concept again. We waited two hours for them to finish the game. We made sure they had left. Once they were gone, we struck and both air defence systems were destroyed.’’

Comox on Vancouver Island has a elementary school less than a kilometre from CFB Comox and it has soccer fields. Hell there is a golf course that abuts the base.  Human shields around our airforce bases.  The horror.

NATO's War Crimes in Libya: Sanctions Against Defiance  - by James Petras

Do you think appealing to the tender mercies of Herr Harper is going to work?

After all he's Butcher Bouchard's boss.

Well, sort of.

In Canada, the Guvnah Genral is the de jure Commander-in-Chief of Canadian forces, so it complicates things a bit.

You are right. But I wasn't appealing to Harper, but to Canadians. Here's why Harper, Bouchard et al are murdering Libya:

GRTV: What Really Happened in Libya? (and vid)

"What really happened in Libya, including the warcrimes perpetrated by NATO in support of the rebels, and how the media helped to enable those war crimes by covering up [for] the perpetrators..'speaking of NATO's warcrimes, where do I begin..?"

Frmrsldr

If Canadians start to publicly protest the war on Libya and if Canadians write to their representatives, the pressure is still going to be on the same man to either (hopefully) disengage or escalate the war on Libya.

That man is Herr Harper - to whom the thought that a war could exist that he wouldn't like is inconceivable.

The only way Herr Harper is not going to escalate is if enough Canadians raise their voice loud enough before he puts this (yet another War Resolution) before the House.

His political future has to be put at risk before he'll change his mind on escalation.

That is if he even allows a vote on it.

Last time (the decision to escalate the Afghan War to 2014 and deploy ~1,000 additional troops) he did it by "royal" Prime Ministerial "decree."

Just like Obama and his decision to enter America in the war on Libya. A war that lasted beyond the 60 days required by legislation before putting it to a vote to Congress.

NATO's Client Regime in Libya Confronts Divisions as Military Offensives Stall  -  by Peter Symonds

The fragility of the new NATO backed regime was underscored by its announcement yesterday that it would remain in Benghazi until after the seizure of the remaining pro-Gaddafi strongholds.."

The reason is to be found in the language.

From the above quote:

"... the military mission in Libya ..."

Combine that with the lie that we are there to 'protect civilians.'

Notwithstanding the fact that the U.S./NATO Luftwaffe and Special Forces troops on the ground have murdered multiple times over more innocent Libyan civilians than Gadhafi and rebel forces combined.

Libya: NATO's Neo-Colonial War -  Whither International Law?  -  by Courtnay Barnett

http://www.counterpunch.org/2011/09/19/libya-whither-international-law/

"For those who think that anything good is going to come out of this NATO-led war in Libya, and feel that it is mainly a question of some wrongly supporting Gadaffi, I beg to differ. The choices really are -

1. A government in power under Gadaffi; or

2. A government 'bombed into power' by NATO; or

3. A Western-style elected government; which plan, from the onset of the rebel uprising, the African Union had stated in a detailed plan and Gadaffi had accepted.

Now, since number 1 is history, and number 2 is being resisted in a civil war six months on - and - no one on the NATO side had permitted option 3, than we are left wtih choices 1 or 2...

This is in no way a war in Libya about or for 'democracy'. Plain and simple - this is an imperialist and neo-colonial war, and one heavily motivated by the desire for the control and domination of Libyan oil."

NATO Extends Libya Mission By 90 Days

"Operation Unified Protector was just extended for 90 days, AFP quotes a diplomat as saying on condition of anonymity after a regular meeting of NATO ambassadors in Brussels, Belgium on Wednesday. Hundreds of Libyan civilians have lost their lives since NATO took command of airstrikes on March 31. NATO aerial attacks have also severely damaged Libya's infrastructure.."

It is time for Do-War to show he understands his file and that the NDP cannot support this naked aggression.  Its one thing to be fooled by the fig leaf of protecting citizens before the aerial assault on cites and it is another thing when the extension is obviously to bomb cities to ensure a specific outcome in a civil war.  The NDP did not originally vote to engage in regime change but voting for a three month extension now would be.  I look forward to the party doing the right thing and distancing itself from the naive position they took in May.

NATO's War Against Libya is Directed Against China  - by F William Engdahl

"The key force behind the recent wave of western military attacks against Libya or more covert regime changes such as those in Tunisia, Egypt and the fateful referendum in southern Sudan, which has now made that oil-rich region 'indepedendent' has been AFRICOM, the special US military command established by the Bush administration in 2008 explicitly to counter the growing  Chinese influence over Africa's vast oil and mineral wealth.

The aim of the US-led regime change in Libya as well as the entire Greater Middle East Project which lies behind the Arab Spring is to secure absolute control over the world's largest known oil field to control future policies as in especially countries like China.."

Libya Air War to End Within 3 Months: Canadian General

"However, after a six-month-old air war, the Canadian general said progress towards NATO's final goal would be largely 'based on NTC forces on the ground...and also on the will of the regime forces to continue.' The big coastal cities of Tripoli, Benghazi and Misrata were all now 'back to normal' and the 'rule of law and order has been restored,' he said."

[url=http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/sirte-civilians-accuse-nato-o... civilians accuse NATO of genocide[/url]

Civilians pouring out of the besieged city of Sirte accused NATO of committing genocide yesterday as revolutionary forces reinforced their numbers and prepared for a new attack on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's home town.

Long lines of civilian vehicles were seen leaving after a night punctuated by NATO air attacks. Forces fighting for the National Transitional Council (NTC) added their own artillery and mortar rounds at regular intervals.

Civilians, many looking scared or sullen, said that conditions inside Sirte were "disastrous". They made claims which, if verified, offer a conundrum for Nato, which operates with a UN mandate on the need to protect civilian life.

"It has been worse than awful," said Riab Safran, 28, as his car was searched by revolutionary fighters. His family had been sleeping on the beach, he said.

"They have hit all kinds of buildings: schools, hospitals," he said, referring to NATO airstrikes.

He said he could not distinguish between NATO and NTC attacks but believed it was a NATO bomb that destroyed part of his home on Saturday. NATO said it hit a number of military targets including a rocket launcher, artillery, and three ammunition stores.

Another resident said: "NATO bombing is killing civilians. Where is the United Nations? Where is the Muslim world to stop this genocide of the people of Sirte?"

NATO violated that "U.N. mandate" (UNSCR 1973) the instant it:

1. Made all of Libya's airspace a No-Fly Zone.

2. Went on the offensive (War of Aggression) when NATO aircraft ranged Libya's skies and attacked antiaircraft missiles and guns located in or near cities that were too far away to shoot any hostile planes down. Later this was expanded to include military and civilian (communications infrastructure) targets of opportunity. Thus entering the Libyan rebellion/civil war and choosing the side of the rebels.

3. Attacked Tripoli which was never attacked or under the threat of attack by Gadhafi forces because it was held by the Libyan (Gadhafi) government until recently captured by rebel forces.

4. Bombed Gadhafi's home thereby indicating that NATO had entered the regime change business.

Money to Explode  -  by Craig Murray

http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2011/09/money-to-explode/

"Yesterday saw the heaviest NATO attack of the entire war, on the very centre of Sirte, leading thousands of civilians to try to flee. They are largely unable to do so because of a cordon of checkpoints set up by their attackers,..This massive bombing was coordinated with what we must now call the Libyan government - the former TNC.

That a military action by NATO rationalized as protecting civilians from the Libyan government, ends up with a far greater bombardment of civilians on behalf of a different Libyan government, is too terrible to call ironic.

NATO's mandate to 'protect civilians, from the UN, actually expires on Friday, so all this week we will see a massive crescendo in NATO bombing of towns before that deadline.

NATO members are at the absolute heart of the world financial crisis. The colossal squandering of incredible - and in some cases unaccountable - sums in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya are fundamental to the lack of fiscal control in these economies.

Not a single media pundit has mentioned it."

Washington Targeting China's Achilles Heel  - by F William Engdahl

http://www.voltairenet.org/Washington-targeting-China-s

"The Washington-led decision by NATO to bomb Gaddafi's Libya into submission over recent months, at an estimated cost to US taxpayers of at least $1 Billion, has little if anything to do with what the Obama administration claims was a mission to 'protect innocent civilians.'

In reality it is part of a larger strategic assault by NATO and by the Pentagon in particular to entirely control China's strategic dependence on large volumes of imported crude oil and gas.

NATO's Libya campaign was and is all about oil. But not about simply controlling Libyan high-grade crude because the USA is nervous about reliable foreign supplies. It rather is about controlling China's free access to long-term oil imports from Africa and from the Middle East. In other words, it is about controlling China itself..."
