UN backed war of aggression against Libya is a gross violation of International law.Heinous Crimes, World news Monday, July 11th, 2011
Thousands of innocent unarmed civilians have been murdered by the US, French, UK, and Canadian armed forces. A thousand times more civilians will be murdered by NATO forces than by Gaddafi security forces. $Billions in damages against civilian infrastructure will be inflicted by the US, Canada, the UK and France in Libya. According to long standing international laws this UN backed war of aggression against Libya is a gross violation of international law. According the United Nations own Charter this action by the U.S., French, UK, and Canadian armed forces are illegal. According to International law their actions constitute crimes against peace and crimes against humanity.
The crisis in Libya, however tragic it might be, is an domestic matter. Libya has not attacked any other country nor has the Libyan government made any threats of an armed attack against any other country. However, the US, France, the UK and the Canadian governments have all ordered their armed forces to launch armed attacks against Libya in direct violation of the UN Charter and International law.
4. All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations
7. Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state or shall require the Members to submit such matters to settlement under the present Charter;
In 1950, the Nuremberg Tribunal defined Crimes against Peace, in Principle VI, specifically Principle VI(a), submitted to the United Nations General Assembly, as:
(i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
(ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i).
The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court refers to the crime of aggression as one of the “most serious crimes of concern to the international community”, and provides that the crime falls within the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Least we forget
Saddam Hussein was accused and hung for allegedly killing a few hundred people in his own country. In comparison the US killed over 1 million Iraqi civilians in that US / NATO war of aggression. Clearly the United States launched a war of aggression against Iraq. The U.S. committed the heinous crimes of crime against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity as U.S. president George W Bush publicly admitted. Saddam Hussein nor any political or military member had anything to do with the attacks on U.S. soil on September 11, 2001.
Afghanistan and their Taliban ruling party didn’t attack the US or any other NATO country nor did they kill any US or NATO citizen and yet the US / NATO launched a war of aggression against Afghanistan on October 7, 2001. Less than 1 month later, in November 2001 U.S. committed their first major war crime when they slaughtered as many as 3,000 captured Taliban prisoners (POWs) outside of Mazar-i-Sharif. Since then the U.S. and NATO forces have murdered tens of thousand of innocent Afghan civilians in that US / NATO war of aggression. Throughout the war the U.S. kidnapped and tortured thousands of Afghan civilians. Hundreds died as a result of being tortured by agents of the U.S. government.
Libya didn’t attack the US, France or any other NATO country nor make any threats against of an armed attack against France, the US or any other NATO country and yet the US, France, the UK and Canada have launched a war of aggression that will slaughter tens of thousands of innocent Libyan civilians.
A war crimes tribunal must be formed immediately. France, the US, the UK and Canada are committing the very same atrocities as those committed by Nazi Germans in WWII. The Nuremberg Trials, that followed WWII, were a series of military tribunals for the prosecution of prominent members of the political, military, and economic leadership of the defeated Nazi Germany. We must now demand that such trials be held to prosecute US President Barack Obama, US Defense Minister Robert Gates, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Canadian Defense Minister Peter MacKay, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, French Minister of Defense Gérard Longuet, UK Prime Minister David Cameron and UK Defense Secretary Dr. Liam Fox – for violating international law and the laws of war.
The indictments against the political leaders of France, the US, the UK, and Canada are for:
1. Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of a crime against peace
2. Planning, initiating and waging wars of aggression and other crimes against peace
3. War crimes
4. Crimes against humanity
The crime of terrorism is defined as:
– Undertaking, organizing, sponsoring, ordering, facilitating, financing, encouraging or tolerating acts of violence against another State directed at persons or property and of such a nature as to create terror, fear or insecurity in the minds of public figures, groups of persons, the general public or populations, for whatever considerations and purposes of a political, philosophical, ideological, racial, ethnic, religious or such other nature that may be invoked to justify them;
– An offense involving the use of firearms, weapons, explosives and dangerous substances when used as a means to perpetrate indiscriminate violence involving death or serious bodily injury to persons or groups of persons or populations or serious damage to property.
The evidence speaks for itself. The leaders of the US and other NATO countries have committed the above named crimes. Gaddafi is guilty of killing his own people in order to put down an armed rebellion that was started by foreign paid and controlled mercenaries and terrorists. The US and NATO forces are killing thousands of innocent and unarmed Libyan civilians. The UN backed war of aggression is – a gross violation of International law.
Evidence of a war of aggression in Libya by U.S.
U.S. Special Forces on the Ground in Libya, Covert Operation – in violation of UN Resolution 1973
British Special Forces uncovered on the ground – Cameron insists no ground forces for Libya – in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1973
Tanks Don’t Fly – 58th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999 reveals U.S. armed attacks in Libya have nothing to do with enforcing a no-fly zone. U.S. in violation of UN Resolution and of International law.
Obama signed secret order for CIA teams to enter Libya to arm foreign mercenaries. 2:30 minutes into video.
Evidence that Muammar Gaddafi has been fighting CIA paid mercenaries in Libya – – CIA personnel were sent in to contact opponents of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and assess their capabilities, two U.S. officials said. “They’re trying to sort out who could be turned into a military unit and who couldn’t,” said Bob Baer, a former CIA case officer. These statements prove that the CIA were ordered by Obama to enter Libya to form mercenary units. US money was used to recruit and form these armed mercenary units. A “mercenary” force, is basically a military unit. UN General Assembly Resolution 2465, designated mercenaries as outlaws.
Under Article 47 of Protocol I of the Geneva Conventions relating to the Protection of Victims of International Armed Conflicts it is stated in the first sentence “A mercenary shall not have the right to be a combatant or a prisoner of war.”
On 4 December 1989 the United Nations passed resolution 44/34 the International Convention against the Recruitment, Use, Financing and Training of Mercenaries. It entered into force on 20 October 2001 and is usually known as the UN Mercenary Convention.
A mercenary is any person who, in any other situation:
(a) Is specially recruited locally or abroad for the purpose of participating in a concerted act of violence aimed at:
(i) Overthrowing a Government or otherwise undermining the constitutional order of a State; or
(ii) Undermining the territorial integrity of a State;
Article 2 makes it an offense to employ a mercenary and Article 3.1 states that “A mercenary, as defined in article 1 of the present Convention, who participates directly in hostilities or in a concerted act of violence, as the case may be, commits an offense for the purposes of the Convention.”
Muammar Gaddafi security forces weren’t the first to kill unarmed civilians. New Orleans police officers were put on trial for shooting and killing civilians during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. These killing of unarmed civilians occurred after a natural disaster. U.S. security forces kill unarmed civilians every day on U.S. soil. What would Obama do if the people of the United States decided tomorrow that they had enough ($14.49 trillion national debt, millions unemployed and homeless) and started to rebel against the government? Martial law would be imposed. The United States Constitution would be indefinitely suspended. Thousands of unarmed civilians would be shot and killed by United States security forces loyal to Obama.
Won’t happen! Have you forgotten the time when members of the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4, 1970 opened fire on anti-war protesters at Kent State University, killing four students and wounding nine others.
Remember Waco Texas. The U.S. government authorized the use of force against U.S. civilians on U.S. soil on February 28, 1993. The U.S. government (Hillary and Bill Clinton) sent U.S. army tanks to attack the ranch killing seventy-six people, including more than 20 children, two pregnant women. Was there any outcry from the International community? Did the UN impose a no-fly zone over the U.S.?
