The insurgents’ navy was formerly known as NATO’s embargo enforcement fleet. Here is clear evidence of justification for the Libyan forces mining Misurata harbour and firing on it. Put simply for lawyers wishing to bring charges against NATO, the embargo fleet in dereliction of its duty is assisting blatant gun running.
Sealift Extends Lifeline to a Rebel City in Libya
Combining the talents of those who procure a city’s wartime needs with those of merchant mariners and fishermen, rebels have organized about two dozen fishing vessels and former Qaddafi-controlled tugboats into an impromptu fleet that has provided Misurata with a lifeline of supplies. The fleet sails with NATO’s approval and support. (Rebels and organizers in both Benghazi and Misurata spoke openly of the smuggling effort, but asked that certain locations and shipping schedules not be disclosed.)
At a basic level, it has assumed missions of both mercy and war. The mixed cargo — baby formula and medicine beside crates of ammunition — has helped civilians survive and equipped Misurata for its fight.
NATO aiding Benghazi insurgents to deliver arms from where? An Italian ship anchored out to sea? There were claims of shortages in Benghazi itself so they can’t be coming from there.
This is no longer a legal operation by any stretch of the imagination. NATO as outlaws helping bandits and terrorist with EC approval.

Proof that the law of the wild west is being foisted on the world:
NATO’s campaign in Libya rumbles on, two months after it started. The U.S., which led the operation, is still highly engaged without official consent from Congress. According to the Constitution, America’s military action over Libya is now illegal. But as RT’s Lauren Lyster reports, few on Capitol Hill seem concerned.
Congress Proposes Bill to Allow Worldwide War
Many are disgusted that Obama got us into a war in Libya without Congressional authorization.
But as the ACLU noted yesterday, Congress is going even further … proposing handing permanent, world-wide war-making powers to the president – including the ability to make war within the United States
“A Spanish colleague tells me that this week he also visited the Plaza Verde, a gaddafi stronghold in absolute tranquility, when there was a phone call from his family, extremely worried because the broadcast media in Spain informed that that place had just raised the flag of the monarchy and demonstrators were being violently repressed.”
