Boston.com – False pretense for war in Libya?
EVIDENCE IS now in that President Barack Obama grossly exaggerated the humanitarian threat to justify military action in Libya. The president claimed that intervention was necessary to prevent a “bloodbath’’ in Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city and last rebel stronghold.
But Human Rights Watch has released data on Misurata, the next-biggest city in Libya and scene of protracted fighting, revealing that Moammar Khadafy is not deliberately massacring civilians but rather narrowly targeting the armed rebels who fight against his government.
Misurata’s population is roughly 400,000. In nearly two months of war, only 257 people — including combatants — have died there. Of the 949 wounded, only 22 — less than 3 percent — are women. If Khadafy were indiscriminately targeting civilians, women would comprise about half the casualties.

From WBTV – Rebel says Gadhafi troops shell Misrata, kill 9
… Libya’s official JANA news agency reported airstrikes Wednesday
… residents had mostly evacuated that part of Misrata several weeks ago after Gadhafi troops stormed it.
“Gadhafi troops are misleading the NATO,” he said. “The Gadhafi forces turn the shops into weapon caches and then claim that the areas are residential.”
[Do Gaddafi's forces advise NATO? Does NATO bomb residential areas on insurgent say so? Even if not, it would not avoid insurgents targetting those residential properties - would it? And then perhaps claim the army targetted them? Seems no-one is honest, Cameron, Hague, Obama, let's face it, politicians are liars virtually to a man and the NGOs are no better.]
Has Soros been honest with AYM?
I think not. The AYM is being used to further the interests of the globalist puppeteers that control countries by controlling their economies through debt and by controlling their energy use through fraudulent legislation. AYM has become a tool in the same way so much of the media is used. Not a compliant puppet in the way the European Commission and governments are but the end result is the same. Clinton and Power are bankster owned.
Congratulations to AYM, working for and directed by the banksters, Hilary and Power welcome you to the club.
How to salvage the mess? If AYM is clever and succeeds in gaining control in Libya the first thing they should do is jail the insurgent leaders as working for foreign interests against Libya’s. If the protests succeed in Egypt, the government and army heads should be jailed.
The only concessions globalists allow are those that advance their agenda and they are fickle, as likely to change allegiance as pass wind. Once AYM has served its purpose it will be forgotten. The globalists do not care who the figureheads are in any country or what political system is imposed as long as their wishes are complied with. I’ll give some examples next.
Globalists want democracy? – examples from yesterday’s “Stop NATO” compilation:
Quote: You may say that if Libya or Iraq were democracies, there would have been no need for the Euro-American invasions. We say to you: Salvador Allende. In 1973 the US Government overthrew the democratically elected government of Socialist President Salvador Allende. This is not the only example.
In February 1963, the US enabled a coup against the government of Iraq headed by General Abd al-Karim Qasim, who five years earlier had deposed the Western-allied Iraqi monarchy.
In 1960 the CIA and the Belgian government orchestrated a military coup that removed and killed pan-African leader Patrice Lumumba in Congo. In Brazil in March 30 of 1964, a democratically-elected government headed by President João Goulart was successfully overthrown by the CIA. On February 24, 1966, Kwame Nkrumah, the President of Ghana, was overthrown in a military coup backed by the CIA while on a state visit to North Vietnam. Howard Baine, the CIA agent responsible was decorated for his role in the coup.
In 1967, the Government of Iraq under President Abdul Rahman Arif was overthrown by the US government for attempting to give huge oil concessions to France and the USSR.
In the Salvadoran civil war between the military-led government of El Salvador and the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN), the US supported the Salvadoran military government.
The US had for many decades coddled the dictator Ferdinand Marcos, even as his regime abused human rights and his wife Imelda Marcos plundered the country of billions of dollars. The US support was based on the US military’s desire of Philippine territory for its naval bases. But some American presidents, such as Ronald Reagan, were genuinely fond of Marcos, calling him a “freedom fighter.”
In 2002, Washington approved and supported a coup against the Venezuelan government. Senior officials, including Special Envoy to Latin America Otto Reich and convicted Iran-contra figure and George W. Bush “democracy ‘czar’” Elliott Abrams were allegedly part of the plot.
Top coup plotters, including Pedro Carmona, the man installed during the coup as the new president, began visits to the White House months before the coup and continued until weeks before the putsch. The insurgency against the government of Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2003 was allegedly supported by the US, and Aristide claims he was physically removed from the country by US personnel against his wishes.
After winning Palestinian legislative elections in 2006, Hamas and Fatah formed the Palestinian authority national unity government in 2007, headed by Ismail Haniya. In June 2007 Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip. The US has since applied sanctions on Hamas and listed it as a terrorist organisation.
For the purposes of killing people, America, Britain and Portugal supported UNITA’s Jonas Savimbi who murdered indiscriminately millions of people in Angola. They also supported [Renamo's] genocide in Mozambique.
The current bombing of Libya is a call for hasty recolonisation of Africa, by the same colonial powers of Europe and their Arab protégées. Notice how America used the fact the Arab League wanted a “We Fly Zone for Euro-American” and they ignored the African Union. This is the programme of America’s neo-conservatives know as the project for the New American Century, that America wants to use muscle power to take all the resources of the world.

(I could spend a few hours doing the same for the UK but I’m pressed for time.)
The same people that direct the US gov’t direct the EC including France and the UK, they also direct many if not all think tanks, CoR, CoM, CoL, CFR, Grantham, Tavistock, Fabian Soc, Bilderberg etc. and many NGO’s, the UN, NATO, Greenpeace, Common purpose, etc. and now AYM. Chances are that Koussa is a bank clerk considering how his sins have been waived against public will and how the truth about Lockerbie is still suppressed, kept from public knowledge.
How quickly did the banksters exert influence in the council? They look to have transferred key people from Gaddafi’s gov’t to the insurgents’ team early to avoid a repeat of Egypt’s scenario where bankster agents from Mubarak’s team were re-employed that caused a resurgence of protests.
[Remember, a Rothschild introduced us to the CO2 fraud and banks have coined it ever since (carbon credits, wind farms, etc.) despite evidence that the whole shooting match is a scam.]

Arming rebels in Libya, the unrest in the Middle East (CNN)
From Al J live:
9:11am France and Britain want to extend air strikes to the logistics and decision centres of Muammar Gaddafi’s army, rather than start arming Libyan rebels, Gerard Longuet, the French defence minister, said. Asked if it was time to send weapons to the rebels, Longuet told LCI television:
This is the reason France and Britain want to show our determination, including with strikes on military decision centres in Libya or on logistics depots which today are being spared.
Why? Because if we want to avoid civil war… the force of the other side must be neutralised, and so the strikes we are asking for are aimed at not having to arm the insurgents. Our goal is not to organise a front, it’s that Gaddafi’s troops go back to their barracks.
They are determined to get control of the oil fields.
