David Cameron’s Gift of War and Racism, to Them and Us

The Euro-American attack on Libya has nothing to do with protecting anyone; only the terminally naive believe such nonsense. It is the West’s response to popular uprisings in strategic, resource-rich regions of the world and the beginning of a war of attrition against the new imperial rival, China.

FT journalist accuses press warmongers

8 April 2011 — Morning Star

A leading Financial Times journalist accused the British media today of ‘buttering up’ the population to support the war on Libya.

At a Stop the War Coalition fringe event at the NUJ conference the paper’s assistant news editor David Crouch accused the Times and the Evening Standard of running a campaign to bring about Western intervention.

He said of the anti-Gadaffi rebels: ‘We are told that the opposition is defenceless – they are not.

‘They have liberated arms depots. They have tanks and had fighter planes, at least until they shot two of their own down.’

Mr Crouch labelled Colonel Gadaffi ‘a brutal dictator’ but questioned several stories which have accused forces loyal to the Libyan leader of carrying out ‘massacres.’

‘Reporters have been to the areas where it is alleged they took place and are not finding any evidence,’ he said.

He added that he regretted his paper’s backing for Nato action in north Africa but added: ‘The first causality of war is the truth.

‘The war is about the West reasserting their control over their former colonial back yard.’

We Are Not Being Told The Truth About Libya
By Johann Hari
“In Pakistan, when we hear Obama’s rhetoric on Libya, we can only laugh. If he was worried about the pointless massacre of innocent civilians, there would an easy first step for him — stop doing it yourself, in my country.”

Lynch Law and Summary Executions in Rebel-Held Libya

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford
“The world’s most imperial-dependent, ill-disciplined and whining ‘liberation movement’ is still blaming black ‘mercenaries’ and soldiers from Chad for its failures in the field.” Chad, meanwhile, has officially asked the “international coalition” to protect its civilians from the rebels, who have executed “dozens” of Chadian migrant workers. In rebel-held Libya, black Africans and Gaddafi supporters are the people in need of protection.

Sarkozy between a Libyan ‘rock’ and a French ‘hard place’ — RT

8 April 2011 — RT

For a France that was pushing for a military solution in Libya three weeks ago, the possibility of a stalemate looks likely to bring some grand ambitions crashing down, with watchers already questioning the noble sentiments voiced by the country.

­A NATO friendly-fire air strike incident has killed at least five anti-Gaddafi rebel fighters in Libya, while some sources suggest it may have been dozens.

This only adds to the criticism coming from the opposition, who say the Alliance is not doing enough to help them.

‘France wants to get in on the imperial condominium of reconquest of Africa,’ slams author Diana Johnstone.
