'NATO bombs civilians!': Report from Tripoli
by grtv

As NATO attacks continue in Libya, former US congresswoman and presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney went to the country on a non-governmental fact-finding mission to see what exactly is going on in the war-torn country.

Cynthia McKinney believes the bombardments of Libyan cities and other measures taken by NATO, causing civilian casualties, represent the idea of “collective punishment”.

“NATO is preventing shipments of fuel, food and medicine to come in. There have been efforts to get medicine into the country that have been denied by NATO. It is impossible to go on any street and miss the huge queues – sometimes three or four deep – that go on and on, as they queue up to get gasoline from the service station,” McKinney says.

McKinney also told RT how universities and other civilian facilities are being bombed by NATO troops.

“I don’t know why NATO is choosing these targets, but these are civilian targets. Whenever you target a civilian population, you’re committing a crime,” she added.

Developers of military weapons always need living targets and conditions of war to measure more exactly the power of their destructive innovations. Libya provides the proving-grounds.

Civilized nations, priding themselves on scientific and humanitarian achievements, are using new technologies of destruction. They unleash barbarism on civilian populations.

i have not seen any pictures of NATO bombed civilian houses , but i have seen too many pictures of buildings in Misrata destroyed by bombs from Qadaffi.
Tell me if there are more than 1000 deaths in Misrata, did NATO kill them? or Qadaffi?
I applauded Cynthia McKinney for her stance against the Bush led invasion of Iraq in 2003 but this time she is siding with the wrong side. If you do not understand that Qadaffi is the problem then you are very naive.
do western countries bomb libya because of the oil?Of course NOT because so many of them already had billion dollar oil contracts and investments in Libya, so why start bombing libya if you already have what you want?
Cynthia apparently does not want to understand that it is not Libya that is bombed but an evil tyran's army that is fighting its own population.

@bart
there is never one reason for an action (mono causality). oil is one of the reason. other reasons are the gold dinar that would have subtutued the dollar in the african union as trade currency. also don't forget the billions on water and the project to regreen the dessert. the war against libya is a war against africa and the muslim financial system that is getting stronger and doesn't make money out of money. if any colonialist power would had really the intention to get off gadaffi, the would have killed him. the war in the arab world is also like everytime a business for the overdebt nations that instead of solving with this money the social and economic problems in their nation rather help the military-industrial-complex to make profits. and yes they had the contracts for the oil but libya allways had the mayority of at least 55%. this is over now. first act of the rebells governement: creation of a central bank and new oil contracts. libyas oil is no longer in libyas hand. this is an invasion war for the interess of the old colonial countries!

This war in Libya was initiated by the plutocratic globalists in a bid for global resources. These atrocities against basic sovereign rights will continue until all of mankind is enslaved by these proponents for a one world order.

Are these the US/NATO baby killers at work?

Or, is this the siege on Gaza?

Oh well....
