Hundreds of Libyan civilians reportedly killed by US missile strikes against civilian owned cellular and internet service providers.Crimes Against Humanity, Latest news, World news Sunday, March 20th, 2011
The first wave of air strikes by the United States in the UN backed war of aggression against Libya have apparently not been directed at Gaddafi’s military. US Tomahawk missiles were launched by the US against civilian owned and operated cellular and Internet service provider buildings. Hundreds of civilians who work at these wireless communication companies have reportedly been killed or gravely wounded.
The US is beginning their latest war of aggression against another oil rich country by wiping out the Libyan people’s communication to the outside World. The US government doesn’t want the World to see cell phone or Instant messaging images on CNN, NBC, ABC, MSN or Fox News of the slaughter being carried out by US forces against the civilian population of Libya. Former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak was successfully ousted from power by the Egyptian people as a direct result of instant messaging services like Twitter, Facebook, and AIM. The US government would no longer have support for a war in Libya if instant messages were allowed to get out – images showing US missiles killing or displacing hundreds and eventually thousands of women and children.
According to International laws the targeting of civilians is a crime against humanity and that is exactly what the US is committing in Libya with Tomahawk missiles strikes against civilian owned and operated communication infrastructure.
IV Geneva Convention Article 50 in Chapter II: “Civilians and Civilian Population” of Protocol I Additional to the Geneva Conventions defines that a civilian is not a legal combatant. Article 51 describes the protection that must be given to civilians (unless they are unlawful combatants) and civilian populations. Chapter III of Protocol I regulates the targeting of civilian objects. Article 8(2)(b)(i) of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court prohibits attacks directed against civilians. It is an accepted principle of international humanitarian law that the direct targeting of civilians is a breach of the customary laws of war and is binding on all belligerents.
A second wave of air strikes by the US and France have been made against the Israeli and CIA paid mercenaries (50,000 employed by Israel alone) battling each other in Libya. Hundreds more civilians may have been killed in these attacks against the foreign paid mercenaries as the US and Israel seeks to wipe out any link between their governments and the mercenaries.
Reports out of the Middle East claim that the US has destroyed civilian schools, apartment buildings and hotels were Israeli paid mercenaries were either being temporarily lodged or held captive by Libyan police. The Telegraph published a story on Feb 27, 2011 titled African mercenaries in Libya nervously await their fate wherein they stated: Crowded into an empty classroom which was stinking of unwashed bodies and reeking of fear, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s defeated mercenary killers awaited their fate. The story states that the captured mercenaries were being held in a classroom in a children’s school. In order for the US to get at them and kill them so that they cannot later provide evidence linking Israel to the Libyan crisis the US would have to attack the civilian school. The story doesn’t reveal whether or not the other classrooms were also empty. If the classroom was in a Muslim school Muslim civilians (including children) could have been holding prayer in any one or all of the other classrooms. If the school was just like any public Canadian or US school sporting events were more than likely taking place on Saturday when the US fired their Tomahawk missiles.
Italy’s Foreign Minister Franco Frattini told lawmakers it was “likely” more than 1,000 people had been killed in the Libya violence. Those numbers account for the number of people who have allegedly been killed by Gaddafi for the duration of the political unrest in Libya. The unrest began on Feb 15, 2011 so Italy is stating that 1000 people were killed since Feb 15, 2001. With the US and French air strikes in Libya that began less than 24 hours ago as many as 1000 civilians have been killed by the US and France.
US missiles strikes to knock out all communications out of Libya are against civilian owned and operated wireless communication service providers. How many hundreds of civilians were working at the time of the US Tomahawk missile attacks? How many civilians were in the civilian schools, hotels and apartments complexes where captured Israeli paid mercenaries were being held? How many anti-Gaddafi rebels (CIA paid foreign mercenaries) were killed as a result of French air strikes against rebel anti-aircraft batteries? How many women and children have been killed by the US and French air strikes? The answer to all of these questions will probably never be truly know because the US Tomahawk missiles were launched to knock out Libya’s communication to the outside World.
The US government wants to prevent the Libyan people from showing the World through cell phone videos and instant messaging images of the carnage that is being inflicted by the UN endorsed US war of aggression against them. It is an attempt by the US government to prevent the Libyan people from pleading for an end to the illegal war. It is an attempt by the US government to silence the cries for help by the Libyan people to the International community to stop the US slaughter.
