Coalition Air Strikes: Now the Body Bags Begin Piling Up in Libya

By Patrick Henningsen, 21st Century Wire
It was only a matter of time before gungho western audiences and pundits would have to face the harsh reality that overwhelming military power produces: 1,400 air sorties and 700 Tomahawk cruise missiles later, the civilian body bags are beginning to mount up. And the political ramifications for the acting war parties in Washington, Britain and Paris are inescapable.
According to yesterday’s report from Reuters, at least 40 civilians were killed in air strikes by Western forces on Tripoli, a …

Wow That Was Fast! Libyan Rebels Have Already Established A New Central Bank Of Libya

H/T American Everyman, originally posted at The Economic Collapse.
The rebels in Libya are in the middle of a life or death civil war and Moammar Gadhafi is still in power and yet somehow the Libyan rebels have had enough time to establish a new Central Bank of Libya and form a new national oil company. Perhaps when this conflict is over those rebels can become time management consultants. They sure do get a lot done. What a skilled bunch of rebels – they can fight a war during the day …

No-fly zone: Clouding words of war

By Tarak Barkawi.
Phantasms from the 1990s are upon us: no-fly zones; the rhetoric of humanitarian war in Washington, Europe and the UN; guarantees that no US ground troops will be deployed; an air war which alone cannot decisively affect earthbound events.
President Obama swung for ringing tones in his statement on Libya, condemning idleness in the face of merciless tyrants who brutally assault innocents.
In the legal codes through which the international community acknowledges so untoward a happening as war, the UN resolved to protect civilians and create a cordon sanitaire around …

Liberals Willing to Trade Blood and Treasure for Oil Company Profits Under Obama

By Eric Blair.
It’s perplexing to see a high level of support for the unprovoked bombing of Libya on so-called “progressive” websites.
There has been an endless stream of humanitarian propaganda flowing from these sites trying to convince average liberals that the “human thing to do” is to rain down tomahawk missiles with depleted uranium to bring freedom and democracy to an oppressed people.
Huffington Post ran a piece by Ed Schultz titled Why I Support President Obama’s Decision to Invade Libya where he described his reasoning as follows:
…President Obama explained this won’t …

US, Europe intensify Libya onslaught after establishing no-fly zone

By Tom Eley.
The White House and British Prime Minister David Cameron claim that the bombing campaign, “Odyssey Dawn,” has already crippled the Libyan air defense system, which was based largely on antiquated Soviet technology. “We essentially have a no-fly zone,” a White House spokesman told ABC News.
Yet even though a no-fly zone has already effectively been established, the Western powers have accelerated their missile strikes, exposing the lie that the operation’s sole purpose is to protect civilians.

The US, France and the United Kingdom on Monday intensified their bombardment of largely …

Libyan War: Globalists Bluffing their way to Victory

By Tony Cartalucci.
In a war the globalists dared not even debate domestically amongst their bankrupt, imploding societies, they are now oafishly extending their litany of verifiable lies, and unverified accusations over the combat phase of their meddling in Libya.
We were told that UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution 1973 was to establish a no-fly zone over Libya to protect civilians. We would only be kidding ourselves if we didn’t realize the entire resolution was just the “camel’s nose entering the tent” – and that full-fledged war …

Libya: Regime Change Goal Becomes Clear as Attacks Extend Beyond Scope of ‘No-Fly Zone’

By Patrick Martin, originally titled: US, France and Britain launch war of aggression against Libya
The United States, France and Britain began air strikes and missile attacks on Libyan targets Saturday, initiating a war of aggression that threatens to destabilize North Africa and the entire Middle East. The first two days of bombing have already claimed many lives among the Libyan population that the imperialist powers falsely claim to be protecting.
The war is the first step in a campaign by Washington and its partners in crime to strike back against the …
