The sacking of the entire Benghazi-based Libyan opposition cabinet this week has exposed the anti-democratic, faction-riven character of the regime that the US and its European allies are seeking to impose on Libya. The self-proclaimed Transitional National Council (TNC)—facing a military stalemate in efforts to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi due to its lack of […]

The following article is Part II of a three part series. Part I of this research focusses on the broad implications of a US-NATO “humanitarian” military campaign against Syria. PART I A “Humanitarian War” on Syria? Military Escalation. Towards a Broader Middle East-Central Asian War? – by Michel Chossudovsky – 2011-08-09 The road to Tehran […]

NATO’s lies we have seen before. We saw them in Kosovo as they protected Albanian mafia terrorists and controlled the drug trade, we saw them in Iraq with Saddam’s non-existent Weapons of Mass Destruction, we saw it again with the invention of a casus belli against Libya which does not exist. But where do the […]

The division of Libya into three separate countries has been an old imperialist objective of the U.S., Britain, Italy, and France. There have been at least five attempts to divide Libya. The NATO war launched against Libya in 2011 is merely the latest attempt to bring this about. The July 2011 gathering in Istanbul of […]

By Nick Brown: On July 1st, 2011, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Tripoli for a massive rally in support of Muammar al-Gaddafi and the Libyan government. The rallies come in the wake of all-around attacks by Western imperialists and their lackey regimes in the Middle East against the north African country’s social and […]

It’s very hard to get an accurate number of the mass of people that have attended these rallies. Estimates have placed the size of the July 1st rally in Green Square at one million people. The rallies have been taking place almost weekly in Tripoli and other Libyan cities, including Sabha on July 8, 2011.
Western public opinion has been misinformed. People in Europe and North America are not even aware that these mass rallies have taken place. The rallies express the Libyan people’s firm opposition to NATO’s “humanitarian” intervention (“on behalf of the Libyan people”).

This war is misguided. An invasion would be a disaster. Nato already is out of control, using a UN mandate allowing for protection of civilians as the flimsy pretext for an unauthorised mission of regime change through massive violence. In a just world, the Nato commander would be held responsible for any violations of international law.

Journalists have a responsibility to tell the truth and report all news worthy issues. Some do, but their stories either get edited or never get published or aired. Others say nothing and instead concoct stories. It is now the responsibility to look at the reports coming out of Libya from all sides with a grain of salt. Diversity of news is just one starter.

DAMASCUS – Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem on Wednesday criticized the West’s approach to the recent unrest in Syria, saying Damascus considers extended EU sanctions as a declaration of war against the country. Muallem said that the recently-imposed EU sanctions against Damascus have not and will not affect Syria’s independent will. “We will forget that […]

It is the attack on unarmed civilians with the aim of exterminating a particular group that is genocide – to exterminate the genes of targeted groups such as the Jews, Tutsis, etc. It is wrong to characterise every violence as genocide or imminent genocide so as to use it as a pretext for the undermining of the sovereignty of States.

Hillary Clinton: “By following Iran’s lead, President Assad is placing himself and his regime on the wrong side of history… “If President Assad believes he can act with impunity because the international community hopes for his cooperation on other issues, he is wrong about this as well. He and his regime are certainly not indispensable.”

BRUSSELS: NATO responded on Tuesday to a Congressional threat to cut off funding to the U.S. military involvement in Libya by saying the United States was providing unique assets essential for the success of the mission.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday (7th) that the United States suffers from an “imperial madness” which, he says, is demonstrated in the attacks on countries like Libya. “Rarely have you ever seen or experienced a bombing of a country to, quote, ‘protect civilians,’ when the bombs precisely hit everybody,” Chavez said to the […]
