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 …

Humanitarian Neo-colonialism: Framing Libya and Reframing War

The world community is being subtly brainwashed to accept the radical neo-colonial policy of ‘humanitarian’ military intervention
Creative Destruction Part III
By F. William Engdahl. Global Research, May 4, 2011.
The most remarkable facet of NATO’s war against Libya is the fact that “world opinion,” that ever so nebulous thing, has accepted an act of overt military aggression against a sovereign country guilty of no violation of the UN Charter in an act of de facto neo-colonialism, a ‘humanitarian’ war in violation of basic precepts of the laws of nations. The …

NATO bombs terrorize Libyan children at school in another CIA kick-started war

By Deborah Dupre. June 5th, 2011 12:23 pm ET.
Human rights violations escalating in Libya due to NATO strikes and related abuses all tied to CIA
Today, reports from Libya by independent journalists include NATO’s terrorizing children at school with bombs, evidence that the CIA has paved the way for the conflict by its involvement with Libyan rebels, and Cynthia McKinney in Tripoli Saturday visiting NATO injured hospital patients, one asking “Why do they want to kill us?” 
Human rights violations in Libya are escalating due to NATO strikes and its related …

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 …

Welcome to the violent world of Mr. Hopey Changey

By John Pilger, 26 May 2011.
When Britain lost control of Egypt in 1956, Prime Minister Anthony Eden said he wanted the nationalist president Gamal Abdel Nasser “destroyed… murdered… I don’t give a damn if there’s anarchy and chaos in Egypt”. Those insolent Arabs, Winston Churchill had urged in 1951, should be driven “into the gutter from which they should never have emerged”.
The language of colonialism may have been modified; the spirit and the hypocrisy are unchanged. A new imperial phase is unfolding in direct response to the Arab uprising …

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, …

NATO’s Endgame for Libya: Towards an Invasion? Even if Gaddafi Leaves the War Will not End

By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya. June 3, 2011.
Washington, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and the European Union (EU) are talking about an endgame in Libya. David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy are talking about a new phase in the war as they prepare to send helicopter gunship squadrons to fight inside Libya. They claim that the departure of Colonel Gaddafi is imminent. The Italian Foreign Minister says Colonel Gaddafi is finished too. NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen says the same. The leaders of the Benghazi-based Transitional Council are already speaking …

The ICC: Imperialist Crime Cover-Up

What Does the ICC Stand For?
The Imperialist Crime Cover-Up
By DIANA JOHNSTONE. June 2, 2011.
Last May 16, Luis Moreno Ocampo, chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, officially sought an arrest warrant for Libyan leader Moammer Kadhafi for “crimes against humanity”. Also accused were the leader’s son Seif al-Islam Kadhafi and Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah Senussi.
U.S. jurist David Scheffer told Agence France Presse: “NATO will doubtless appreciate the ICC investigation and indictment of top Libyan leaders, including Kadhafi.”
Well, yes. And nobody is better placed to know what …

Anatomy of a Murder: How NATO Killed Qaddafi Family Members

By Cynthia McKinney, May 29, 2011.
How many times must a parent bury a child?
Well, in the case of Muammar Qaddafi it’s not only twice: once for his daughter, murdered by the United States bombing on his home in 1986, and again on 30 April 2011 when his youngest son, Saif al Arab, but yet again for three young children, grandbabies of Muammar Qaddafi killed along with Saif at the family home.
Now, I watched Cindy Sheehan as she bared her soul before us in her grief; I cried when Cindy cried. …

Gaddafi’s wife breaks silence, speaks to CNN – slams NATO war crimes, ‘life has no value’

By the Editor.
CNN reporter Nima Elbagir has purportedly spoken to Safia Gaddafi, wife of Muammar Gaddafi in what CNN claims is the first time she has spoken to foreign or domestic media. The interview was arranged by CNN, through Safia’s office manager.
Safia decided to come forward due to the NATO murder of her son Saif Al-Arab, along with 3 of Gaddafi’s grandchildren, all of whom were under the age of 12. This heinous war crime has been brushed under the carpet by the contrived bin Laden fairy tale, …
