About a year ago, the Amerikkkan administration dispatched the CIA to Libya to sow the seeds of uprising against strongman leader Muammar Kadhafi and foment an eventual civil war.
Having used its proxies to set large swaths of the country ablaze, the Amerikkkan regime then spent many long weeks trying to bulldoze the UN security council into authorizing a so-called “humanitarian intervention” in the beleaguered country to be carried out by Amerikkka and its NATO client states.
Concerned that such intervention would be neither “humanitarian” nor of ultimate benefit to the Libyan people, Russia and China initially opposed it.
As Amerikkka strong-armed more and more countries into pressuring Russia and China to allow the inervention, the two eastern members of the Security Council buckled.
They eventually conceded, but insisted – and this limitation was clearly spelt out in the UN authorization – that the “humanitarian” intervention not have “regime change” as a goal.
True, Muammar Kadhafi was brutal in his treatment of dissenters. And true, the Kadhafi family did steal many millions of dollars from Libyan government coffers.
But Kadhafi did give the Libyan people by far the highest standard of living in all of Africa; and he was a staunch defender of the equality of women. (Just a few days ago, Libya’s new rulers announced they would allow Libyan men to have as many as three wives, a brtual assault on the human rights of women.)
In fact, there is credible evidence that Kadhafi enjoyed the support of most of the Libyan people.
But NATO proceeded anyway with its “humanitarian” intervention. And in flagrant violation of the UN mandate, it did crudely implement a policy of “regime change” – by cold-bloodedly executing Kadhafi without even any kind of trial – an obvious war crime.
And what has NATO left behind in the wake of its “humanitarian” intervention?
Literally hundreds of armed militias are now roaming the country, wantonly carrying out massive torture, random executions, widespread looting and mindless vandalism.
The country is now ungovernable and life is now much worse for the average Libyan than it has ever been.
But why should Amerikkka, the United Kingdom, France and the rest of the NATO thugs even care now about what they’ve done to the Libyan people? After all, Amerikkka, the U.K. and France have now locked up all the Libyan oil leases – and isn’t that all that ever really mattered?
Yes, indeed! The sole real goal of NATO in its so-called “humanitarian” intervention in Libya was to loot the country’s oil reserves and award them to the mega-billionaires who control the Amerikkkan, U.K. and French energy conglomerates.
And now, these same NATO thugs are pushing for another UN-authorized “humanitarian intervention” in the civil war the CIA has provoked in Syria.
Will Amerikkka and its NATO “allies” ever abandon their longstanding genocidal intentions toward Arab, Muslim and Third World countries?
Will Amerikkka and its NATO “allies” ever stop raping, pillaging and looting the rest of the world for the sole benefit of the Top One Percent in their own rich countries?
NATO’s ‘humanitarian intervention’ has spun Libya into a spiral of bloody mayhem
