Libyagate: Another 12 people wiped out by NATO

Did they consider themselves acceptable collateral damage? As well as killing civilians NATO is killing more of its ground force.
NATO Strike Kills 12 Libyan Rebels in Misurata
(anti Gaddafi, pro insurgency, pro war)
MISURATA, Libya: NATO warplanes attacked a rebel position on the front lines here on Wednesday, killing 12 fighters in what rebel fighters called another friendly fire accident.
[We can only hope some were AQIM]

From a Qaddafi Daughter, a Glimpse Inside the Bunker
[Seems the bank clerks that were transferred to the NTC are still communicating with the Gaddafi's.]

If you disagree with the NATO war on Libya for reasons such as this:
Sarkozy’s deal.  mathaba. net/news/?x=626551
… Under the earlier decision reached at a conference in London, we act according to our agreement with the French Government for recognizing us, instead of Colonel Gaddafi as an official representative of Libya for the international community. On our side, our spokesman, Mahmoud Shammam will sign the document, on which 35% of all reserves of Libyan crude oil will belong to France.

While Libya is being blitzed for fighting against a stage-managed armed insurgency the UK may send a strongly worded letter to Syria about using tanks and bullets against unarmed protesters. Even worse than bombing Libya, the Syrian rep's invitation to "The Wedding" has been withdrawn.

The Pentagon's rubber stamp UN security council can't even agree what to say in their letter to Syria.

NATO is being used to advance the US Africom agenda
and Pentagon-Cameron-Sarkozy's "get Gaddafi". This is a clear breach of international law and evidence is abundant.
NATO has repeatedly refused demands from China, Russia and many other countries to obey the UN charter and resolutions.
The embargo that forbids the supply of arms has been openly ignored. Even the rebels admit they are getting weapons from Qatar, Egypt and unnamed sources.
NATO jets are tightly focussed on blitzing Libyan army and airforce as well as civilian targets in Libya west such as communications infrastructure (not just the TV stations). The targets selected include ammo dumps, Libyan army barracks (40% of ~20,000 so far), heavy weaponry such as tanks and rocket launchers and these are "taken out" even when no threat to civilians is evident, aircraft on the ground. Taking into account the frantic clamour for an invasion, the pretexts postulated ("spotters" and "advisors", EUFOR aid mission...) one can only assume preparation for an invasion that has been planned since before xmas is the reality of the UN rubber stamped mission.
The mainstream media is behaving exactly as if a war is being conducted.
Members of government with morals of a feral dog are calling for Gaddafi to be murdered and are seeking a UN rubber stamp.
The Libyan army is pilloried for shelling Misurata port yet nothing is said about the use of aid ships to smuggle weaponry, terrorists and reinforcements, (soon possibly EUFOR) into the city.
The Libyan army is pilloried for using inaccurate rocket launchers and mines yet the insurgents are praised for their use.
The UK government is also now acting without UN authority because its head Ban ki Moon has called for a ceasefire.
The UK has stockpiles of US cargo mortars (commonly miscalled cluster bombs) for the US. I wonder how 3 got to Libya.

'Soldiers of Fortune' fight for Gaddafi

10.26am - 
26 April: A Nato attack on a compound used by Gaddafi caused an "amazing scene" of destruction, our colleague, Harriet Sherwood, reports from Tripoli.
"The building, which officials here claim was a civilian office building housing a library and archive, was completely flattened. Nato says it was a command and control centre - it was a legitimate target. The Libya government here are saying very explicitly it was an attempt to assassinate Gaddafi and an act of terrorism."
2.48pm 27 April: The UN team investigating human rights violations in Libya, says it will be seeking access to prisons and hospitals.
