Obama Sending US Forces to Libya – by Stephen Lendman
On January 13, Cynthia McKinney said Obama has 12,000 US troops in Malta heading for Libya.
Throughout 2011, Washington and rogue NATO partners committed Nuremberg level crimes. They made Libya a charnel house.
Terror bombing caused massacres, mass destruction and human misery. Libya remains wracked by violence, instability, and illegitimate governance.
Occupation, colonization, pillaging and exploitation intend raping Libya for profit.
America’s Marines Hymn begins with the lines, “From the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli.”
If Malta positioned troops are marines, they’ll return for the first time in over 200 years.
McKinney said:
“The NTC (National Transitional Council) not only has to contend with a vibrant, well-financed grassroots-supported resistance, but the various militias….are also fighting each other.”
“I believe this ‘sociocide’ of Libyan society (like in Iraq, Afghanistan and other US war theaters) is part of a carefully crafted plan of destabilization that ultimately serves US imperial interests and those of a Zionist state and its US agents who are bent on Greater Israel’s suzerainty over huge swaths of Arabic-speaking populations.”
Reports from Misrata say Apache helicopters slaughtered rebel insurgents trying to scale Brega oil platforms.
“A resistance Libyan doctor-become-journalist reported yesterday that (they’re all) occupied by NATO and that warships occupy Libya’s ports.”
Photos show “Italian encampments….with an announcement that French are to follow.”
Moreover, “(t)housands of young (pro-Jamahiriya) Libyans languish under torture and assassination in a Misrata prison….Black Libyans are being beaten, whipped, threatened, harassed, and humiliated.”
“I hope the report I’m reading from 12 January 2012 is not true.”
After months of Washington-led NATO atrocities, McKinney’s account likely represents a small snapshot of what millions of Libyans now face.
It’s the same wherever America shows up, and they’re coming back after using air power and insurgents to reign death and destruction on defenseless men, women and children.
Perhaps now they plan more of it on the ground.
