I'm well aware of how the conflict started, and I don't agree with you one bit. Let's get some facts together to build a picture.
CIA Finance and Organized Rebels
CIA has financed, trained and organized the rebels to cause chaos and cause a regime change for over 2 decades. This is one fact that most are not
even aware of, not surprising, but how else do you suppose WAR PROPAGANDA LIES work? Through ignorance:
Colonel Haftar was the leader of the Libyan National Army, a group of counter-revolutionaries supported and trained by the United States and
operating in Libya. According to the sources cited in the article, anti-government uprisings in Libya were led by Colonel Haftar from the
United States (The Washington Post 26 Mar. 1996; see also CSR 19 Dec. 1996)
The same rebels tried to create chaos and cause a regime change before, but failed, this time the difference is that NATO came to save them (surely
they didn't go to Libya to save civilians), rather to save their own pawns.
This conflict started as a proxy war, and the Libyan regime was not responsible for the proxy war, rather US was. When US was failing twice in its
attempt to cause regime change in Libya, it took a different route, that route is a stalemate. I don't know what the purpose of this stalemate is,
but I argued in another thread that it could be to divide Libya in to different segments like Sudan.
This is just my belief, but there could be other reasons for it. I believe NATO (mainly US) wants this because they know the rebels have no support in
Libya, the Libyan regime has brought prosperity to Libya, (free healthcare, free education, ended water shortages through man-made river project,
decreased child mortality, created independent banking system away from International Bankster's control, was planning to create a new currency that
would benefit Libya and Africa...). So considering what Libyan regime has done for Libya, to what the rebels have done for Libya, the popularity
contest will always lean towards the current regime. That's why they didn't want to accept the regime's offer to solve the stalemate through a
The rebels have been controlling Benghazi through terror and torture, many pro regime demonstrators have been massacred, many tortured, black Libyans
facing the worst crimes against humanity because of the WAR PROPAGANDA LIES OF MERCENARIES. Many Black Libyans were labelled as Mercenaries and
tortured to death, others hanged in public etc..

Yea, telling the truth, something the U.S. media seems to leave out.. No matter what RT's motivation of this coverage is, it is what it is, killing
of civilians.. The exact same thing we said we are trying to stop...
I know this is going to sound very callous but you don't change policy due to unfortunate accidents in a war. Sometimes things go terribly wrong,
innocents die. It's unavoidable in war. As others have stated, Qaddafi started this mess. Would you have rather he slaughtered all the residents of
Benghazi like he was about to do? Of course there would have been no cameras or photos of his troops butchering those men, women and children, so
there wouldn't have been any outcry.
I fault the NATO strategy, they should have used overwhelming force in a very short period of time and destroyed Qaddafi's ability to field an army.
I thought that was one of the major things we learned from the first Gulf War. You quickly take out your enemies forces. We took half a step when we
needed to take the full step and take him and his government out. We have drawn this out and now things like this errant bomb happen.
I am about to cry right now those poor children
Those are the innocent lives lost right now. There are people on ATS right now who I am talking with in other threads who think that this Libyan war
is justified. I mean seriously. My heart hurts
Third, Qaddafi has in fact committed acts of war against the West and that is general knowledge.
Blaine you are going to have to do better that that buddy - 'general knowledge'
US ran an illegal unprovoked and attempted secret (but botched) F 111 bombing strike on Tripoli in the 80's
they - emphasis on 'they' - MSM - say, Libyan response was the pan-am lockerbie bombing
the real criminal is the big banks who have co-erced US Presidents into sending the good people of the USA into war, provoked or unprovoked to borrow
more money and boost the economy by creating more guns, missles, planes, ammo, bombs etc etc
- examples include
Lusitania setup -> US enters WW1
Pearl Harbour setup -> US enters WW2
Quaddafi is recognised as king of Africa - how about applying "qui bono & follow the $$$" to this situation?
nothing to do with Africa / middle east wishing to create a gold based currency with which one must purchase oil from them now, is it?
sure, the US has guns and tanks and bombs, which can be produced in exchange for credits of fiat currency
- but they have stuff-all gold mate
Why should America care when it murders OVER 1 million of its own children every year by abortion? - and that is general
edit on 23-6-2011 by Highlander64 because: (no reason given)
Hmm, we can debate all we want about how it all started...
But if you really think America is over there to provide HUMANITARIAN AID you need to wake up and smell the coffee.
I think the whole world knows what drives America. Profit. And you know it.
America leaves death and destruction where ever it goes, and my suspicions are the Libyans were better off before the US and NATO arrived. Certainly
the ones in this vid were.
Why do they feel the need to get involved in everyone elses affairs?
They didnt like that communism to much did they?
They dont like these here "Dictators" do they?
Who the hell decided everyone has to live by American rules?
To busy in everyone elses affairs to properly care for the people they have back home.
I see they havent made any moves to force there own ideas on China or Russia yet....O yea...thats because they only bully the ones that cant defend
Sorry but If I belived in the Devil I'd call it America. Give it ten years and the middle east will be American controlled, you wont be able to sh**
without there say so. I hope the commies kick there ass.
