NATO launches full-scale attack on Gadhafi compound

French foreign minister says war shouldn’t last longer than “a few months”


 

NATO troops launched their heaviest bombings so far of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s compound on Tuesday. According to Libyan officials, three people were killed and 150 wounded in the strike that NATO officials say targeted a military facility used in attacks against civilians. While the mission in Libya has the protection of civilians as its primary goal, critics say its focus has since come to include regime change. Indeed, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters on Monday that Gadhafi’s is now unable “to re-establish control over the country” and the U.S. welcomes the rise of “a new Libya.” Though the civil war between Gadhafi’s troops and anti-government rebels has been deadlocked for weeks, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe told his country’s parliament he doesn’t expect the NATO mission to last longer than “a few months.”

  1. It is my understanding that a “no fly zone” is to keep Libyan planes out of the air. What is this nonsense?

    A war by any other name still smells the same. It stinks. 

    Russia and China both demand that this madness under cover of a resolution which they did not endorse cease. “Kill Gaddhaffi” was not on the table and the “rebels” are not peaceful protesters carrying signs. They are armed and dangerous. 

    This propaganda BS has been taken to the absurd.

    It is murder.  

    • When did Russia and China become members of NATO? I find it pretty rich that either one would stake a claim the moral high ground.

  2. Sure, bomb that country right back into the stone age. “That’l learn ’em ’bout democracy”.

    This is a fighter pilot’s dream. To roll in on a target that has no effective defence. Great fun. Yeeee hawwww!!!!

    Can someone explain how our bombing of Libya contributes to the sovereignty of Canada?

  3. Outright Murder by Nato.

    This armed insurection has been a propaganda fraud all along.
