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 …

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 …

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, …

Libya: US-NATO Axis Aims to Divide Country and End Sovereignty; End Chinese Energy Partnership; Prevent African Independence from Globalist Financial System

Gaddafi was advocating to end African Union subservience to EU/US by pushing for African Development Bank and replacing Franc with African currency;

Western policy of funding and arming al Qaeda-linked militants, Islamists and cutthroat killers in Libya mirrors US Afghanistan policy;

Mainstream media focus on Misrata can be understood from an economic/industrial context: the city hosts the headquarters of the Libyan Iron and Steel Company (Lisco) that exports over 60 percent of its products with nearly 50 percent going to Italy and Spain, as well as Libyan National Oil …

Libyan Rebels Killing Civilians in Benghazi

By Stephen Lendman / May 12th, 2011.
In London, at a June 1999 anti-Yugoslavia war rally, Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter scathed US and UK leaders, saying:
Let us face the truth… (N)either Clinton nor Blair gives a damn about the Kosovar Albanians. This action has been another blatant and brutal assertion of US power using NATO as its missile… to consolidate… American domination of Europe.
Today, Obama doesn’t give a damn about Libyans, any more than about Iraqis, Afghans or working Americans. At issue only is Washington wanting unchallenged dominance everywhere, including over …

Flat-out lies continue as NATO moves to invade Libya

Britain and France escalate war in Libya
By Patrick Martin.
Great Britain and France, the two European powers spearheading the war against Libya, are taking new steps to escalate the military intervention. British Foreign Minister William Hague announced Tuesday that as many as 20 British military officers were going to Benghazi to direct the forces fighting Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi. France has deployed additional air capability, including the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle.
The British decision is the most fateful, since it is a clear signal that the NATO powers, including the United …
