With every passing day the concepts of international morality and the rule of international law are being murdered in Libya! And so, if it turns out to be true that the British, French and American forces of NATO have finally succeeded in assassinating Libya’s Muammar Gadaffi – just as they have murdered thousands of his fellow citizens – this may well turn out to be the final nail in the coffin of the system of “international law”…
WHILE the warplanes of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) continue to facilitate the anti-Moammar Gadhafi rebel forces to take full control of Libya, there are increasing reports of racist killings and torture against black Africans accused of being mercenaries of the deposed Libyan president…
Libya’s rebels are a front patched together from groups of varying interests and ideologies, they were disorganized, undisciplined, and untrained for battle when they first attacked an army base and a police station. By themselves, they could have perhaps achieved negotiations and reforms, but they could not have overthrown the government….
I wonder whether out of this Norweigian tragedy there cannot be much water found to pour on the war fires around the world…
As a professor and an influential voice on the internet, I am appealing to you to stop supporting, be it implicitly or explicitly, the criminal bombardment of the Libyan people by the US/NATO attacks…
Mervyn Claxton argues that “Uninformed internet readers who closely followed the “debate” on the Libyan conflict, on this website, in the hope of gaining some understanding of the nature of that very complex issue, and what is at stake in the various possible outcomes, would have been completely and utterly misled”.

LAST WEEK, while the United Nations humanitarian aid chief, Baroness Valerie Amos, was pleading for at least a pause in hostilities in Libya to help “ease the humanitarian crisis”, NATO’s Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, was arrogantly boasting – amid continuing bombing strikes – that President Moammar Gadaffi’s “days are numbered… There is no future for him or his regime…” ..

I believe that if we are serious about global politics and about the future for Africans inside and outside of Africa, we need to be focused on how the world works and be able to engage on global levels that matter…
The Western bombardment of Gaddafi’s forces in Libya has become an opportunistic public relations ploy for the United States Africa Command (Africom) and a new inroad for US military stronghold on the continent. This involvement of Africom in the bombardment is now serving to expose the contradictions and deceit that have surrounded the formation of this combatant command, which is a front for military humanitarian assistance to Africa in coordination with the US Department of State and the US Agency for International Development (USAID)…
The governments of Britain, France and the United States of America are in the process of committing a terrible crime against the nation and people of Libya, and they are doing it in the names of all of us – the citizens of all the countries that are members of the United Nations (UN)!…

The US-led military action against Gathafi is neither about humanitarian intervention nor about oil. It is in fact a deliberate distraction from the principal political struggle in the Arab world, notes Immanuel Wallerstein.

The leaders of 14 capitalist powers in Europe plus the United States met for a conference in Berlin 126 years ago to decide how all of Africa’s land and vast resources would be divided as colonies and zones of control among themselves. No Africans were invited to the conference…One cannot help but think about the Berlin Conference of 1884 when analyzing the London Conference of 2011 that took place on March 29. It was convened by the same imperialist governments that took part in the 1884 meeting. Africans were invited this time, but the African Union refused to attend…
You didn’t have to be clairvoyant to foresee what I wrote with great detail in three Reflection Articles I published on the CubaDebate website between February 21 and March 3: “The NATO Plan Is to Occupy Libya,” “The Cynical Danse Macabre,” and “NATO’s Inevitable War”…

Not many of us in the Caribbean realize that the West has released a carefully planned series of lies through their media agents to get the people of the world in a state of mind that would make them support the invasion of one of Africa’s success stories – as was done to legitimize the invasion of Iraq. As more information is made available, however, and the real objective of the west becomes clearer, a different picture is emerging. Attached is a very informative article which, I think, explains what is really happening in Libya and which I think you will find very enlightening.
