The Libyan regime in a press conference stated that over 718 innocent civilians have been the victim of the "NATO humanitarian bombings
4000 injured, and over 430 of them in critical condition.
Considering that over 2000 bombs/strikes
(lowest estimation) have
been dropped in Libya, the casualty reported by the Libyan regime shouldn't be under estimated.
The Libyan regime said that "these figures do not include Libyan military casualties, a toll the defence ministry refuses to divulge
Civilian casualties under NATO humanitarian bombings has increased because NATO has surpassed its obligations. It is not involved in an operation to
protect civilians anymore, rather it is involved in a war, supporting the rebels through (air, sea and special ops attacks), financing and organizing
them through military advisers. Helicopters are being sent to Libya as we speak, to help the rebels.
The above paragraph shows that the operation has changed from saving civilian lives, to toppling a regime. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
"it is time for him to go
", referring to Qaddafi.
Who does Clinton propose should replace the revolutionary regime of Libya?
Senator McCain gives us a hint when he said "Washington should recognize the rebels' Transitional National Council as the official government of
", France has already recognized the rebels as the official Libyan government.
Who are these rebels?
The Rebels have existed long before the uprisings in Libya, the same Rebels tried to topple the revolutionary government of Libyan before, but
The Rebels were priorly known as LNA (Libyan National Army), it is believe that this group was financed and organized by CIA for over 2 decades, since
the first failed attempt, till now. (Source - UNHCR
The rebels just recently changed their armed wing's name (previously known as LNA),
now named NLA
(National Liberation Army)
Simply put, NATO wants a regime change to replace it with its own pawn (the rebels).
