Countdown to Invasion; Libya's Neighborhoods Prepare for NATO's Boots
Looks like the numbers (as always) are not being reported as same. I am not going to say which side is more credible as all Govts. have the ability to skew numbers when it comes to war. Yes I said war. That's what it is and any other label is just that...a label.
Good video showing Western MSM one sided reporting:
Tripoli, Libya At ten a.m. Tripoli time on 6/28/11 the Libyan Ministry of Health made available to this observer its compilation entitled “Current Statistics Of Civilian Victims Of Nato Bombardments On Libya, (3/19/11-6/27/11).
In summary, the MOH compilation documents that during the first 100 days of NATO targeting of civilians, 6121 were killed or injured. The statistical breakdown is as follows: 3093 Men were injured and 668 were killed. Women killed number 260 and 1318 injured. Children killed number 141 and 641 injured.
The people are arming themselves for NATO coming in on the ground. They don't appear to be willing to lay down on this one and I believe that the Boots on the ground are going to be met with some very violent street fighting.
People from 18-65 are being armed and trained to repel the NATO invasion and it looks like they are going to defend their neighborhoods however they can.
Tripoli’s 3,200 neighborhoods, independently of the Libyan Armed Forces, are intensively preparing for the possibility that NATO forces or those they are seen as increasingly arming and directing, might invade the cosmopolitan greater Tripoli area during the coming weeks or months.
As an independent observer, the reporter seems to have gained the trust of the people and is telling the story from their side.
They appear to this observer to be very well informed about the motives of NATO and those countries that are intensively targeting their leader and their officials without regard to civilians being killed. It’s about oil and reshaping Africa and the Middle East.
This was posted earlier but here is the longer version. It doesn't look to me like what is being reported in the MSM is the whole truth. Supporters by the 100's of 1,000's in favor of what we are led to believe is a ruthless dictator that cares nothing for his people.
This just doesn't seem to be a people that want war. Going to school, working jobs and carrying on with their daily lives while bombs are going off and people are being killed.
Those who begin their duty work one eight-hour shift. Women tend to work during the day when kids are in school but I have seen many women also on the night shift. Most men have regular jobs and proudly explain than they volunteer one work shift daily for their country. They appear to be admired by their neighbors.
