The War Criminals Who Bombed Libya

The War Criminals Who Bombed Libya
By Stephen J. Gray

“First, the [Libyan] war is illegal under the United States constitution and our War Powers Act, because only the US Congress has the authority to declare war and the president has been unable to show that the US faced an imminent threat from Libya.”

(Dennis Kucinich, American Congressman, writing in the Guardian U.K Newspaper July 6, 2011.) [1]

Libya has been bombed non-stop for around eight months all in the name of a “humanitarian mission.” The main perpetrators of this atrocity are the so-called “civilized political leaders” of the western world. Their partners in war crimes are NATO and the Al-Qaeda [2] led rebels. The propaganda merchants for the war were mostly the mainstream media who gave credibility to its illegality and mostly covered up the Al-Qaeda led connection to the rebels. The victims of this war are the Libyan people, men women, and children. Their homes destroyed and reduced to “smithereens.” [3] Thousands killed or maimed all in the name of a “humanitarian mission,” and a “responsibility to protect.” Orwellian doublespeak is the vocabulary of this political filth that rule over us: Killing civilians and children [4] in order to save them! Destroying a country in order to protect it! And “proud”[5] of their obscene and dirty work in the process. No words are strong enough to describe the sick hypocrisy and insane rhetoric coming out of the mouths of these so called political “leaders” who call themselves “The Friends of Libya.”

“Friends”of whom? Certainly not of the little child screaming in agony with half its face blown away. [6] [8] This child cries out for justice as do its parents, but, will they get it from the so-called International Criminal Court (ICC)? I would not bet on it. The political war criminals are free right now and congratulating themselves on a “job” well done. To see them issuing statements (and most of the grovelling mainstream media consorting with them) and praising this massive bombing obscenity as a “humanitarian mission” is to see institutionalized evil in action. Our evil political emperors have no clothes, they are obscenely naked and a revolting picture to the eyes of any decent person who believes in the sanctity of human life. They are political fiends who are a danger to all that is good and decent, yet, they boast of a great “mission success” after their bloody atrocities and months of bombings. Innocent children are slaughtered and it is mostly covered up by the sycophantic media who parrot the war criminals propaganda and write editorials and columns that Josef Goebbels would be proud of.

“The effective propagandist must be a master of the art of speech, of writing, of journalism, of the poster and of the leaflet. He must have the gift to use the major methods of influencing public opinion such as the press, film and radio to serve his ideas and goals, above all in an age of advancing technology.” [7] (Josef Goebbles)

Technology in this illegal and obscene war has dulled the senses and corrupted the language. We saw on a TV news story how “surgical strikes” were carried out by the “brave” assassins in the sky. No mention, or very little, of the human consequences and victims below. But hey, if we killed some innocents below it was “collateral damage” and we can always apologise. This illegal war not only had civilian casualties, other casualties were truth and justice. Meanwhile, the war criminals are free and in positions of power. We would do well to remember the words of Lord Acton: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Make no mistake, we are seeing the absolute corruption of politics and the brain washing of society to justify the atrocities committed in this illegal criminal war.
