The decision by the UN under cover from the Arab League to intervene in a civil war with violent unprovoked attacks is reprehensible. The suffering of the Palestinians pales in comparison and nothing is done to restrain Israeli colonialism and imperialism due to US intransigence. Here we have a nation Libya that voluntarily terminated its nuclear programme, released all nuclear materials and has comported itself appropriately in the international community. This civil war in Libya is a tragedy and it should end but it has not risen to the level of a Darfur, or a Gaza, or a Qana and a US intervention in its third Muslim war is to be denounced as morally bankrupt despite the alleged international consensus.
Cindy Sheehan agrees as I received this in an email from a third party.
Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox
Just hours ago, the UN Security Council led by the US has backed the use of “all necessary measures” against the oil rich country of Libya–including no fly zones.
The UN once again proves to be a toady of the hegemon and the globalists who want to drain this planet dry of every drop of crude oil at any and all costs to the native populations of the countries that have the misfortune to be on top of vast reserves of crude oil.
With the scandalous excuse of “protecting” civilians, we all know that the US-UN no fly zone and sanctions against Iraq caused the deaths of at least 1.5 million (expendable to the profiteers) Iraqis between the two US invasions.
I am against all forms of violence, but I am especially against the US invading another Arab country at the behest of her controllers.
The United Nations is a failed organization that seems to promote war and inequality by being a rubber-stamp for US violence.
The Mission of the United Nations is as follows:
WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINED
- to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and
- to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and
- to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and
- to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom
The UN just sanctioned an act of war against the country of Libya.
Shame, shame, shame once again on the US and the UN.
When will it ever end?
Peace is the urgent imperative and it seems like our “leaders” are criminally insane.
There are actions all over the country for this 8th anniversary of the on-going war on Iraq–one day actions are not enough and they never have been–general strikes, daily civil disobedience from peace camps in DC and refusal to support the crimes of this regime by paying our Federal Income Taxes are just few of the things we can do that may have an impact on policy.
Stay tuned, we obviously can’t stop now!
