    Libya: NATO Enabling War Crimes

    Cutting off a city from food & war is a war crime - again the ICC demonstrates its utter worthlessness.

    According to Fox News, a Libyan rebel "spokesman" recently boasted, "in the end, we will get [the city of] Sirte, even if we have to cut water and electricity and let NATO pound it with airstrikes." Sirte is one of many cities still standing in defiance of NATO's operations to seize the nation of 6 million people, impose upon them an "internationally approved" government, and begin pilfering their resources under the guise of "economic liberalization." Rebels have intentionally surrounded Sirte to cut off electricity as well as the flow of supplies including food and cooking gas in a bid to literally "starve the city into submission," as reported by the London Telegraph. This latest boast by rebels, now operating openly with notorious Al Qaeda members leading their fighters, and still with full military support from NATO, seems to suggests that water will be cut as well.

    According to the International Committee of the Red Cross, the denial of humanitarian assistance is a crime under international law. The Red Cross adds that "a massacre is not necessarily committed only with knives." While many will attempt to portray the premeditated creation of a humanitarian disaster as "more humane" than taking the city of Sirte by force - rebels have in fact already tried to take the city by force and were soundly repelled. NATO airstrikes have apparently proved ineffective and other cities are now bolstering their defenses and rejecting calls by the NATO-backed Al Qaeda fighters to surrender. As the deadline for NATO's military intervention grows increasingly nearer, their efforts to seize the nation have become increasingly more desperate and in proportion more depraved.

    As has been pointed out and now clearly evident in Tripoli, the Benghazi rebels backed by NATO are not motivated by inclinations of "democracy" but rather tribal, ethnic, and viciously racial prejudices. Reuters has recently tried to whitewash what is essentially wholesale genocide being waged against Tripoli's black population by the Benghazi rebels led by Al Qaeda's notorious al-Hasidi. The targeting of Tripoli's black population has been entirely written off by the corporate media as rebels pursuing "suspected mercenaries." Why then would Sirte, Bani Waled, or any other city still standing soundly in defiance of these rebels and NATO, surrender and subject themselves to ensured genocide?

    We are faced with a textbook case of a very real crime against humanity, yet the International Criminal Court is utterly silent, as are the voices in the UN that were vigorously clamoring to authorize war against Libya back in March of 2011. Silent also are the fraudulent George Soros Open Society-funded Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International (page 10) organizations. The ICC and the supporting myriad of contrived rights advocates once again demonstrates they are illegitimate institutions contrived solely to serve Wall Street and London's interests in a clearly one-sided manner. It is no wonder why the African Union has wholly rejected the International Criminal Court's decisions made against Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi or why nations across the world exhibit increasing hostility toward "independent" NGOs like Human Rights Watch, Freedom House, and Amnesty International. Nations should not be expected to permit such organizations to operate within their borders when in reality their goal is not defending human rights but finding a predicate for foreign military intervention on behalf of the corporate-financier interests that fund them.

    Who Watches the "Watchers?"

    So who does the world turn to when the "international community" begins recklessly mass-murdering entire populations, shutting off entire cities from food and water to "starve them into submission," and "pound" civilian populations with airstrikes? The answer is, we turn to ourselves - the individual - who on a daily basis have facilitated in the first place the corporations and banks of Wall Street and London who are the perpetrators of these horrendous crimes. We have created these world-spanning financial and corporate empires, given them the power to act against entire nation-states with absolute impunity, so it must be we the people who rein back in this terrible power.

    Just as we gave them this power by dedicating our time, money, talents, and attention to them, we can take it back by denying them likewise our time, money, talents, and attention. Turn to local alternatives, do without when we can, and entirely replace these corporations with local solutions systematically. If these elitists impose regulations to prevent such activity, take a cue from the brave people of America's Northeast who have passed local ordinances to cancel out US federal dictates. Ultimately, we must remember that these people are not the progressive, enlightened, caretakers of humanity they attempt to portray themselves as.

    The global elite are essentially violent thugs, dressing up their tyranny with the trappings of religion, civilization, political legitimacy,and faux progress. We must be prepared defend ourselves, our communities, and our nation-states intellectually, politically, socially, financially, and physically. Our denial of this terrible and ever-growing tyranny will not spare us when its attention finally shifts toward our homes, families, businesses, and communities. Just as the Soviets or the Nazis worked their way from foreigners, then the fringes of society, before it began cannibalizing its own people, so too will this global Wall Street-London tyranny. It was the Iraqis yesterday, it is the Libyans today, it may be the Syrians tomorrow, but inevitably it will be all of us. Better to stand up now than allow the tragic wheel of history to make yet another predictable revolution.

    For a list of many of the corporations responsible for these increasingly egregious crimes against humanity, please see, "Naming Names."

    Tony Cartalucci's articles have appeared on many alternative media websites, including his own at Land Destroyer Report.

    How about labeling a person a "dictator" when they have no State authority?

    "Serbs, Croats executed by rebels in Libya"

    ZAGREB -- Libyan rebels executed without trial "several dozen people", among them citizens of Serbia and Croatia, writes a Croatian daily.

    Zagreb-based Večernji List says that 12 Serbians, 9 Croatians, 11 Ukrainians and 10 Colombians were among those captured, and then shot and killed by the rebels, while other victims "were not identified".

    The newspaper is quoting the rebels in Misrata who claim that "a group of foreign mercenaries" was inside "the security building" in the town's center - and that those who did not die in the fighting were "convicted on the spot".

    "A bullet to the head and goodbye forever," a local rebel commander was quoted as saying, and then adding: "Those are murderers, not soldiers, they are people who are heartlessly killing for money."

    In Belgrade, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said they had no information about Serbian citizens being executed.

    "We saw this in the newspapers and we are checking it. As for the five Serbian citizens detained in Zintan, we are in contact with them and they are doing well, while we're doing all we can to set them free," an official of the ministry was quoted as saying.

    Meanwhile, Sarajevo-based newspaper Dnevni Avaz quoted military analyst Ljubodrag Stojadinović as saying that "Serb mercenaries were everywhere where there was a war".

    Amnesty International for its part said that "both sides" in the Libya war committed war crimes, and warned that "violence would escalate unless order was established".

    'Libya rebels admit attacks on women & children'

    Rebel forces in Libya claim they are advancing in Colonel Gaddafi's home town of Sirte - one of the last loyalist bastions.

    Several thousand opposition fighters, backed by tanks and heavy weapons, have reportedly launched an offensive on the city.

    Russia says it's time to lift the UN-imposed no fly-zone in Libya, which was introduced to save civilians.

    Anti-war activists, though, maintain that NATO's role has nothing to do with any humanitarian mission.




    As the British Prime Minister departs Libya after celebrating the end of Gaddafi's 42-year rule, anger grows in the UK over the arms fair that once hosted the Colonel when he was stocking up with new military hardware.

    Critics say it's one of the world's biggest weaponry sales floors and that it provided Libya's ousted leader with the means to launch his deadly crackdown on the opposition.

    And as RT's Ivor Bennett has been investigating, some prominent dictators have been shopping around for arms in London.

    It seems that Qaddafi is NOT a dictator (he stood down after setting up direct democracy) but his people have something to teach us about freedom & independence!

    Read the description of the video.

    Serbian TV report about the situation in Libya. The true face of the "western democracy", NATO, and UN becomes ever more clear with chilling paralells to Oceania, Airstrip 1 and the newsreports from the fighting on the Malabar front.

    I think Kadhafi will be back when the time of NATO terror bombers will run out.

    Will Sarkozy and Bernard Henry-Levy be convicted for murder? Well, I can dream, can I?

    Found this recently:

    Far from the German media spotlight three of the most respected lawyers in France are preparing a complaint for crimes against humanity before French tribunals. They will represent the interests of the victims of the ongoing NATO bombing in Libya. Defendant: Nicolas Sarkozy.

    The lawyers are nobody less than former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas, the extremely eloquent Marcel Ceccaldi, and the famous and notorious Michel Vergès.

    Dumas is also willing to defend Muammar Gaddafi before the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which has issued an international arrest warrant against the dictator. He said: “If they find him, they will kill him like Bin Laden. Some states now usurp the right to kill – against every international law. ”

    Attorney Vergès, born in Vietnam and the son of a Vietnamese woman and a Frenchman recalls the application of Agent Orange by U.S. troops during the Vietnam War and the fact that NATO has used for months even warheads containing depleted uranium – a worrying comparison!

    The 88-year-old Dumas (foreign minister under Mitterand) was together with Vergès in May in Tripoli. They made ​​contact with the victims and survivors of NATO attacks, of which 30 issued a mandate to the lawyers.

    The sharp-tongued Ceccaldi reported that the bombing had hit power, water and other supply facilities and points out: “After five months of daily bombing by NATO and thousands of dead people will stop supporting the regime – simply because they do not stand the situation any longer. ”

    Ceccaldi submits another interesting aspect : The Western leadershave lost their thread because of the first serious challenge referring to Libya. “If they stop the lawsuits that are brought to court, this will be evidence once and for all that the Western Justice is not ruled by law, but by the politicians -. ”

    The ICC in The Hague enjoys little prestige outside Europe, since it has so far dealt only with Africans. White offenders à la Tony Blair, George Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfield are there not an issue.

    The French ex-foreign minister stated also that he “was surprised that this (NATO) mission, which had been started to protect civilians, is about to kill them.” It was described as a “brutal aggression against a sovereign country” .
    Michel Vergès also did not spare criticism, calling the countries of the Atlantic alliance ”murderers”. The “French state”, according to him, “is run by thugs and killers. We will tear down the wall of silence “.

    ***
    The elites in the Sarkozy-land, one of the main perpetrators in the war of aggression against Libya, stand obviously not completely united behind their Premier. The war in Libya is even sloppily called “La guerre Sarkozy BHL contre Kadhafi”.

    BHL (= Bernard Henry Levy), millionaire, philosopher and political activist, had first talks with the “rebel leaders” as a kind of substitute foreign minister in a special mission in Benghazi – on whose behalf whatsoever. He advised Sarkozy to officially recognize the rebel council, which he did on 03/10/2011 – without the actual French foreign minister Juppé being informed – the latter is said to have felt snubbed.

    ***
    Bombing a country without any significant air defense is coward and disgusting. Germany’s political class that extorted Westerwelle a statement of respect and a humble loyalty to the NATO because of its successful bombing of Libya has now apparently made its peace with the military "solutions".
