NATO Shocking Terror against civilians

A massacre, a genocide, a razing of a town to the ground. Their crime? None. The only way NATO terrorists can take the town is if they kill everyone.

The city of Sirte, hometown of Libyan leader Muammar Al-Gaddafi, is under siege from NATO barbarians. So far in the 4 days plus campaign, over 1,400 civilians have been killed. The campaign is being waged for two purposes.

The first purpose is to murder Gaddafi and his entire family. Witness the fact that since they assumed he was in his compound in Tripoli, it has been the target of daily bombing attacks. One such attack killed one son and 3 young grandchildren.

The second purpose is to squash, destroy, murder, eliminate and put down all resistance to a NATO terrorist takeover of the country. The Libyan people refuse to give up their freedom and be subjugated to imperialist, colonialist crusader plunder and slavery.

A thousand people alone were killed in a bombing by NATO aircraft during the prayer of Eid al-Fitr on this Tuesday morning (31st). The believers were killed by 12 rockets within a few minutes!! NATO has not cared the least that this has been Ramadan for Muslim believers.

As NATO pounds and murders all within the city limits, the stooge NATO client terrorists of the National Transitional Council on the city’s perimeter murder anyone who tries to escape from the carnage within.

They lurk in wait on the outskirts of a city that will not surrender. They have declared that if they cannot take power, they will kill everyone until there is no one left.

According to George Orwell’s novel:

-war is peace

-slavery is freedom

Protecting civilians is killing civilians by bombs, mercilessly strafing everyone that moves from helicopter gunships, letting loose a gang of criminals to terrorize, murder, mutilate, hang, rape, behead, destroy, burn.

This is NATO’s idea of a government, and freedom and democracy? This is pure Satanic evil at its worst. NATO and the CIA need to stop prowling the world, collecting human excrement, terrorists and criminals to dump into Libya!

This is a violation of every single international law, every single part and parcel of the UN Charter, the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Geneva Conventions and human decency.

NATO and their terrorist stooges possess no decency, no humanity or compassion, nor any semblance of legitimacy. They are cowards, and inept cowards at that. They are led by nothing more than dimwitted simpletons with no conscience and evil, black souls. One might surmise they are possessed by devils and demons from hell.

In order to implement their plans for conquest, besides barbaric violence, their only other weapon is lies and disinfomation, such as the bogus claims of having taken over Tripoli and the “fall” of the Libyan leader, which has not and will not happen.

Meanwhile that fool Ban Ki-Moon pretends to be doing a job he should never have accepted, because he is totally incompetent. That might be said of the entire UN organization, which has been degraded to a mere rubber stamp for imperialist powers.

Three of the 5 main countries are totally worthless if one seeks peace, dialogue, justice or fairness.

Sirte was transformed into a showcase of public works by Muammar Gaddafi. It has low mud houses as well as fine brick houses. Built also was a complex of hotels and government offices. There are towers of white stone neatly landscaped and black glass that could be found in any western city. When you get inside, the decorative style has been described as pure Arabian Nights.

Will there be anything left of this once bustling town before NATO savages are satisfied? Every action of NATO has been totally illegal according to international law and the UN Resolutions 1970 and 1973: not taking sides in a conflict (internal civil war) no boots on the ground, no supplying weapons to one side, meddling in the internal affairs of a country, wanton murder and attempted assassinations.

Will some honorable country, group of countries, human rights organization or international lawyers please step forward and stop this murderous campaign? What kind of people live on this planet if they allow this to continue? NATO is like a rabid dog that has to be put down.

They have threatened independent journalists and overseen a massive campaign of racial murders against any black caught in their path.

Cameron, Sarkozy, Obama…you are butchers, murderers, criminals. Your names will be listed on the same page as Hitler and the Nazis and under the same context, with the same scorn, derision and contempt.

You and every single individual that followed your orders: remember Nuremberg and may you have your Nuremberg war crimes trials for these outrageous crimes against humanity.

Will your eternity in hell have been worth whatever earthly gain you made?

On this FATEH OF SEPTEMBER 1st. we salute the great Brother Revolutionary Leader, Muammar Gaddafi, and the brave, heroic, courageous, resolute, honorable Libyan people. To freedom and victory!

Corrupt Newspapers ‘softened’ Torture After U.S. began Using it

By Luis R. Miranda
The Real Agenda
July 2, 2010

Torture, as a tool to obtain information from a human being is disgusting, inhumane and illegal by all measurements in past and

Do as I say, not as I do. This seems to be the motto of the torturers and the pandering media.

modern societies.  It is unthinkable that anyone with red blood in their veins could consider it acceptable to torture a person in order to obtain information that as it has been widely demonstrated, (1) has never provided any useful details to prevent a disaster.  In the western world, torture is mostly seen as unjustified, (2) and only some power men who control the militaries of the world still agree to use torture in various forms to get details of ‘plots’ to attack the free world.  Only a population that never experience torture as a tool to criminalize citizens could hesitate before the question, Is Torture Ever Justified? (3)

How would public perception change if the media that feeds propaganda to them on a daily basis simply began to indirectly condone or soften torture as a tool the government uses in times of war? A study conducted by Harvard reveals that the four newspapers with more circulation in the U.S. effectively mischaracterized the use of waterboarding -as a form of torture- after it was discovered the United States waterboarded and humiliated prisoners.  (4) The study conducted by Law students at Harvard says that The New York Times, the USA Today, the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal either refused to call waterboarding torture or did it in only and handful of their articles that talked about the use of torture by the United States.

We found a significant and sudden shift in how newspapers characterized waterboarding…   … from 2002‐2008, the studied newspapers almost never referred to waterboarding as torture. The New York Times called waterboarding torture or implied it was torture in just 2 of 143 articles (1.4%). The Los Angeles Times did so in 4.8% of articles (3 of 63). The Wall Street Journal characterized the practice as torture in just 1 of 63 articles (1.6%). USA Today never called waterboarding.

According to the study, newspapers were more likely to call waterboarding torture if another country was the perpetrator of the crime.

The New York Times, 85.8% of articles (28 of 33) that dealt with a country other than the United States using waterboarding called it torture or implied it was torture while only 7.69% (16 of 208) did so when the United States was responsible. The Los Angeles Times characterized the practice as torture in 91.3% of articles (21 of 23).

Although waterboarding has been debated and talked about since the beginning of the century, it was never so close to home as it has been in the last decade.  After 9/11, and in the middle of a careless campaign to hunt a nonexistent enemy, the U.S. launched a military assault in Iraq and Afghanistan to find and kill the murderers who had killed innocent Americans.  There was very little concern in the public’s mind as to how this goal was achieved and what would it take to bring them to justice.  Then came Abu Ghraib (5) and a mass awakening took place.  Was the U.S using the very same techniques it had condemned in the past?  The answer was YES.

Harvard’s study examined the newspapers’ coverage using electronic databases.  “Our research team word searched for the term “waterboarding”, these included classifying the practice as “torture,” giving it some lesser, negative classification (such as calling waterboarding “inhuman”), giving it a softer, less negative classification (such as calling waterboarding “objectionable”), or not characterizing the practice at all.”  The study analyzed the reporting of four major newspapers using Proquest, LexisNexis, and the NY Times website archives.  Read more about the methodology on page 5 of the study.

“The results of this study demonstrate that there was a sudden, significant, shift in major print media’s treatment of waterboarding,” concludes the study.  After the Abu Ghraib scandal, the four studied newspapers changed the word torture for “harsh” and/or “coercive”, to describe waterboarding.  This behaviour was seen both in articles considered as “news” as well as those classified as “opinion”.  Although Harvard’s study does not provide any possible reason why this change in wording occurred, it does cite an article by New York Times editor Clark Hoyt, who said that this behaviour was a deliberate decision made by Journalists and Editors in an effort to remain “neutral”.

The study refutes Mr. Hoyt’s statement with the fact newspapers comfortably called waterboarding and other practices of the sort “torture” before 9/11 and even before 2004 without any reserves.  Another reason why Mr. Hoyt’s affirmation is baseless, is that waterboarding had been labeled torture and an illegal practice by American law, international law, and the very same newspapers that now justify their actions by calling themselves “neutral”.
