Libyan Evacuees Describe Horrific Humanitarian Situation


www.theepochtimes.com

The coastal city of Misrata, located 150 miles from Libya’s capital Tripoli, has been the main battleground for rebels and forces loyal to leader Moammar Gadhafi. Civilians who have left the city, say that the situation there is troublesome, as there is little food, water, or medical treatment available, and dead bodies are strewn in the street.

Forces loyal to Gadhafi have continuously shelled the port city, the third largest in the embattled North African nation. In the past four days, the shelling has intensified. Reports from human rights organizations say that pro-government forces h

Libyans who have fled the war-torn city of Misrata describe the horrific situation there. There is little water, food, medical help, and dead bodies are thrown out in the open.

Muammar Gaddafi's forces have shelled the city relentlessly and used cluster bombs (Israel, China, U.S. still have these) on civilians.

There's no "official" way out of the city-- people have to use fishing boats and jury rigged means of getting out of the carnage.

I think this is why we're seeing gas prices reaching for the sky. Those countries that allied themselves with NATO at the beginning of this operation are obviously now regretting that move and are now upping gas prices to pressure NATO.

Peace,

kuai137 that article is nothing but propaganda, just so they can have an excuse to invade and do an regime change.

Why would the terrorists as in (Rebels) set up a central bank? if in eupore and here in north amercia we are having huge economic crisis facing the banks and us?


central bank is completely not usefully at this time.

Heres another article I found about this.

Misrata emerges as deadly test of NATO clout in Libya


Washington – An experiment is playing out in the Libya conflict to see if a global power other than the United States can lead an armed humanitarian intervention.
So far for the people of Misrata, the experiment is not going so well.



Reporting from Misrata, the group Human Rights Watch said Monday that indiscriminate rocket and mortar attacks on residential neighborhoods were partly responsible for more than 265 deaths recorded by hospital morgues since April 15. Hospital officials claim that more than 1,000 people – mostly civilians – have been killed since fighting began in early March, although the figures are almost impossible to confirm.


Yes casualties are horrible, but from what I see in this article, I believe its trying to sway people to support more intervention by the US.
