We now see the Hilary Clinton changing here terminology in regard to Libya.
She carefully worded the US approach to this conflict in that it should be a United Nations decision and without that there was no way forward. She further explained what they were hoping for a "No-Fly-Zone......however having won the hearts and minds of the UK, EU. Lebanon and the Arab League they have now pushed for the wording of the resolution to include "All Necessary Measure to Protect the civilians"..........this wording really does leave any action under the control of the international military and out of the hands of the UN.
There is no question that should this resolution go through (which I sincerely hope it doesn't) we are talking about a full on war with Libya......we have to understand that if and when US, UK or French aircraft carry out the initial strike one would expect Libya to retaliate and defend its positions. Under the guidelines of NATO this would then mean that any attack on a NATO unit would be considered an attack on all and so it then escalates into a full blown war.
On one of the UK TV channels this evening one expert was talking about the necessity for aircraft to attack tanks and other vehicles currently carrying out an assault on Benghazi......this can only mean on thing......the heavy use of weapons containing uranium components including the use of depleted uranium.
When will the world fully understand what is going on here.......this is nothing to do with the safety of civilians but rather the opposite....once this turkey shoot start the military will as usual start killing many innocent civilians and it would be interesting to know how many people have died in Libya prior to any action and how many will die after the first strike.
The other issue here is the use of DU in almost every weapon they are likely to use which will also include Cruise Missile.....this is standard policy for the US to avoid the loss or aircraft or aircrew.........so we are looking at the most horrific outcome as we have seen in all areas of conflict that have been initiated by the US........the Balkans, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, North Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and now possibly Libya.....when is this madness going to stop......when will we stop killing with DU and stop creating this slow genocide of innocent civilians and our own troops.
This conflict serves only one purpose and that is to get ones hand on Libya’s vast reserves....its all part of the "New World Orders Master Geo Political Plan"
But hey, you don't have to listen to me or believe me.....just keep watching your TV and let the world pass you by.
