Libya: Bombings, Killings, and Partnering With Terrorists

War crimes were committed against humanity
And those responsible boast in their vanity
That they brought “democracy” to these countries
They are bloody liars and war criminals that pervert history...

Only evil monsters, could do, what they have done
Murdering and bombing: ethics they have none
Instead they posture and preen on the world stage
Satanic “leaders” of this corrupt and evil age...

“In March 2011, the United Kingdom and France, with the support of the United States, led the international community to support an intervention in Libya to protect civilians from attacks by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi. This policy was not informed by accurate intelligence. In particular, the Government failed to identify that the threat to civilians was overstated and that the rebels included a significant Islamist element...

“We have seen no evidence that the UK Government carried out a proper analysis of the nature of the rebellion in Libya. It may be that the UK Government was unable to analyse the nature of the rebellion in Libya due to incomplete intelligence and insufficient institutional insight and that it was caught up in events as they developed. It could not verify the actual threat to civilians posed by the Gaddafi regime; it selectively took elements of Muammar Gaddafi’s rhetoric at face value; and it failed to identify the militant Islamist extremist element in the rebellion. UK strategy was founded on erroneous assumptions and an incomplete understanding of the evidence.”

“While the US Congress questions the legitimacy of the war on Libya, the Canadian parliament with one dissenting voice, votes in favor of extending Canada’s participation in an illegal and criminal military undertaking:” Prof Michael Chossudovsky, June 16, 2011.

“Of course, as The New American has been reporting for years, and as numerous top Western officials have openly admitted, the U.S. government was directly involved in creating al-Qaeda. In Syria and in Libya, the Obama administration also provided direct aid to self-declared al-Qaeda leaders — some of whom were openly boasting of their terrorist credentials in the Western press as NATO provided air cover for them under a United Nations resolution.” - Alex Newman
The New American, September 24, 2015.

“Some officers in the Canadian Forces tried to raise concerns early on in the war that removing Gadhafi would play into the hands of Islamic extremists, but military sources say those warnings went unheeded. Later, military members would privately joke about Canada’s CF-18s being part of ‘al-Qaida’s air force,’ since their bombing runs helped to pave the way for rebel groups aligned with the terrorist group....” David Pugliese, Ottawa Citizen, March1, 2015.

According to the above information, Canadian ‘bombing runs helped to pave the way for rebel groups aligned with the terrorist group....’ in Libya. In fact, some members reportedly had a “joke” about it. Bombing and invading another country’s sovereignty is a serious and hellish business, and results in loss of innocent lives and destruction and devastation of that country and its cities. This should be no joking matter. Now some “Western support” is “helping” the refugees that it created in the first place. And here in Canada the government and opposition at the time, and some of them still in politics today, voted to bomb Libya in an “illegal war.” Does it get more hypocritical than that?
 In fact I believe it could be called, The Rule and Roles of Dangerous Hypocrites.”

“The Western leaders and media stay silent about the military intervention and regime change, interventions that have torn the refugees’ homelands apart and resulted in civil war, state collapse and extremely violent conditions lasting for long periods.” James Paul, September 16, 2015.

Libya is now in chaos and reportedly a breeding ground for ISIS. An article by Jon Lee Anderson in The New Yorker of August 4, 2015, headlined, “ISIS Rises in Libya” stated:

“Only five years ago, Libya was a source of stability in the region, as Muammar Qaddafi entered his fifth decade in office. In February, 2011, after a short, heady uprising inspired by the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, in Egypt, Libyan rebels based in Benghazi ousted Qaddafi’s security forces and effectively liberated the eastern half of the country. In March, as Qaddafi’s military forces appeared poised to retake Benghazi, NATO intervened with air strikes and Tomahawk missiles. The U.N. authorized the intervention after British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy lobbied in favor of it on humanitarian grounds; after showing some reticence, President Obama agreed to commit U.S. military power.”

Another article in Global Research of March 10, 2015, by Eric Draitser had the headline , “Washington’s Al Qaeda Ally Now Leading ISIS in Libya” the article went on to say:

“The revelations that US ally Abdelhakim Belhadj is now leading ISIS in Libya should come as no surprise to those who have followed US policy in that country, and throughout the region. It illustrates for the umpteenth time that Washington has provided aid and comfort to precisely those forces it claims to be fighting around the world.”
The article further stated:
“While it may not seem to be a major story – Al Qaeda terrorist turns ISIS commander – the reality is that since 2011 the US and its NATO allies have held up Belhadj as a ‘freedom fighter.’”

In closing, the bombing of Libya has been called a “war crime.” Yet, those responsible are FREE, and have got away with their criminal acts and the terrorists they assisted are running loose.

“As a result of the propaganda and subsequent war, meanwhile, Libya has now become a terror state infested with ISIS, al-Qaeda, and more....” Alex Newman, February 5, 2015.

Libya was another war crime, called “bringing democracy”
Its people were better off, before the arrival of western hypocrisy
Now that country too, is a haven for bloodthirsty terrorists
All brought about by NATO bombings and war criminals propagandists...
