War propaganda continues apace: rebels claim Gaddafi ordered soldiers to attack Misrata until “blue sea turned red” with blood; media parrots claims unchallenged

Rebels claim to possess documents proving Gaddafi ordered forces to starve Misrata and attack until “blue sea turned red” with the blood of its inhabitants; media outlets parrot the claims unquestioned
By the Editor.
The ‘rebels said’ approach to journalism continues to spread with UK news outlets now picking up the next episode in the desperate attempt to bolster NATO’s illegitimate war. As is customary, zero evidence is provided and instead claims from spokespeople and members of the rebel movement are simply parroted unchallenged.
The UK Guardian tells of how the rebels …

Libya: full-scale US invasion planned for October; special forces on ground since February

By the Editor.
Military sources that have contacted Infowars have information suggesting that a full-scale US ground invasion is in the works for Libya, reportedly slated for October. This comes as no surprise. After three months of war, NATO has spectacularly failed to achieve its objective of regime change using its bumbling CIA-led, al-Qaeda linked ‘rebels’, supported by special forces on the ground since before a single bomb was dropped.
NATO troops on the ground before airstrikes began
Remember the fact that NATO troops are currently on the ground in Libya …

Libya ‘rape’ propaganda plunges to new depths of desperation

By the Editor.
Hat tip to Scott Creighton – his recent article ‘CNN’s Misogynistic Cell Phone Porn Propaganda‘, brought this to my attention.
The Libya war propaganda drive has plunged to new depths of cynicism, depravity, and a downright embarrassing lack of credibility.
Over a week after the ICC’s completely baseless claims of ‘rape being used as a weapon’ by Gaddafi’s forces, today CNN is running a propaganda set-piece that is so blatantly invented it makes one cringe with embarrassment for this rabble of liars and propagandists.
CNN claims that rebel forces have found …

Paul Craig Roberts: “UN is a showcase for US propaganda”

By the Editor.
The UN’s underhand attempt to cover up US killings of civilians in Afghanistan recently only underscores what Paul Craig Roberts has to say:

UN attempts to whitewash US-NATO civilian killings in Afghanistan

May 2011 found to be deadliest month for Afghan civilians since 2007; UN attempts to cover up NATO role
Article traduit en Francais par Irradiee.
By the Editor.
A 11 June press statement from the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan slates May 2011 as the deadliest month for Afghan civilians since at least 2007. However this big-hearted announcement conceals a grossly pernicious attempt to cover up US-NATO killings of civilians in occupied Afghanistan.
In its report, UNAMA documents 368 conflict-related civilian deaths and 593 civilian injuries in May 2011. Georgette Gagnon, …

Libya war is about theft of state assets & total restructuring of nation

That the multi-billion dollar NATO military machine mobilises for humanitarian purposes is a desperate belief rooted in pure fantasy
By the Editor.
21st Century Wire’s Patrick Henningsen often speaks to Russia Today, and in his latest interview he covers a number of important issues with respect to the Libya war.
A popular mainstream media talking point is that NATO’s war is all about oil. Though Libya’s sweet crude oil is of high quality and thus very desirable, this is a short-sighted analysis. The motives go much deeper than that. Henningsen …

France stonewalls Gaddafi’s Greece-brokered peace deal using Greece’s EU-IMF-indebtedness as threat

By the Editor. Hat tip to @fazland for sharing this.
The UK Independent today reports that Muammar Gaddafi has been negotiating a deal with Greece to use $20bn of Libya’s frozen assets to broker a peace deal that would halt fighting, and provide humanitarian relief to both sides in the conflict.
The memo seen by the Independent reveals the fact that France has stonewalled this deal, using Greece’s EU-IMF-indebtedness as leverage and a threat.
If you really need any more proof that NATO doesn’t give a flying fuck about Libya’s …

Viagra-induced rape: ICC ups the ante on propaganda as desperate NATO struggles to crush Libyan resistance

By the Editor.
Several news outlets including the BBC, right wing Israeli paper Ynet News, and Yahoo News, are running the latest instalment in the desperate propaganda effort to bolster NATO’s flagging war on Libya.
The chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court, Luis Moreno Ocampo, has said at a news conference today that his office is investigating the possibility that Gaddafi ordered rape to be used as a weapon to ‘control’ the population. Without providing a single shred of evidence Ocampo expounds what is basically a litany of baseless hearsay …

UK Government admits to military ‘mentoring’ team in Libya, refuses to discuss special forces operations

By the Editor.
Immediately after the onset of Operation Odyssey Dawn, the British media was replete with reports of British boots on the ground in Libya. Such a flagrant violation of international law (and the UN resolution that NATO purports to be acting on) prompted me to write to my elected representative for some answers. On Tuesday 29 March – 11 days after the start of NATO’s illegal aggression, I wrote to Julian Huppert – Member of Parliament for Cambridge.
2 months later, I have now received a response which …

Al Jazeera continues to flog mythical Libya narrative

By the Editor.
It’s astonishing that Al-Jazeera can still refer to the NATO-backed, CIA-led, al-Qaeda linked ‘rebels’ as the ‘Libyan people’.  They continue to plug the tired old lie that the Libyan insurrection is a popular uprising, rather than a violent, foreign-linked and backed attempt at regime change.  This isn’t astonishing at all however, knowing what Al-Jazeera has been like from the start on this.
Over 700 civilian deaths as a result of NATO bombing in Libya is conspicuously absent from this poor excuse for journalism.
To see more of Al-Jazeera’s shameful warmongering, …
