Libië update: Bani Walid van de kaart geveegd

In Libië, dat vorig jaar door de NATO werd bevrijd, is vrijwel exact een jaar na de moord op Gaddafi weer een Libische stad bevrijd. Bani Walid is verwoest. We zien weer beelden van verwoeste huizen, overal puin en bloed, van bloedige mannen en gewonde kinderen, van gruwelijk lijden. Vorig jaar september lag Bani Walid ook zwaar onder vuur. In deze stad was de aanhang van Gaddafi krachtig, maar toch niet bestand tegen de gewapende NATO-rebellen.

De herdenking van de sterfdag van Gaddafi op 18 oktober ging gepaard met verwarrende berichten, maar de beschieting van Bani Walid door milities uit Misrata was duidelijk. Een paar dagen later bleek het Libische regeringsleger ook betrokken bij de belegering van de stad, voor zover men in Libië kan spreken van een regeringsleger, want het land heeft nauwelijks een regering!

Besieged Gaddafi Stronghold Bani Walid Under Attack

By Stephen Lendman
Global Research, October 20, 2012

Washington’s war on Libya rages. Fighting didn’t stop after NATO said its seven-month 2011 “mission” ended. Ravaging a nonbelligerent country wasn’t good enough.

Occupation harshness inflicts more pain. Jamahiriya Green Resistance is strong. Its struggle continues. It won’t stop until Libya regains freedom. Loyalists want no part of NATO control, puppet leaders, imperial plundering, and ordinary Libyans used and abused.

Frequent freedom fights erupt. Tribes are involved. Local militias have their own agenda. Insurgents battle each other and Green Resistance for control. Government forces serve Washington and key NATO partners.

The US has blocked a proposed statement to UN Security Council, drafted by Russia, calling for the conflict in Libya’s besieged city of Bani Walid to be resolved peacefully. This, as loyalist militias are mounting their offensive in the last stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi supporters. RT’s New York correspondent Marina Portnaya reports.

Libyan pro-government forces say they’ve occupied the centre of the opposition stronghold of Bani Walid, with only a few pockets of resistance left. Dozens have been killed in recent shelling to end the almost three-weeks-long siege, which has left the city on the brink of a humanitarian disaster. RT’s Paula Slier reports.

Libya’s government forces claim they have taken control of the opposition stronghold Bani Walid – but say pockets of resistance still remain. That’s after a weeks-long deadly assault – with reports of dozens of residents in the besieged city being killed by pro-government shelling. RT’s Paula Slier has the details. Also, RT’s managed to make contact with an eyewitness in the city. He says militias are carrying out mass killings, as civilians continue to call on the international community to help.

Capture of Bani Walid smacks of revenge
October 26 2012 at 03:00pm

Tripoli – Hours after taking control of Bani Walid, a former stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi, Libyan militias from the rival city of Misrata fired ferociously at its empty public buildings.

Fighters yelling “Allahu akbar (God is greatest) and “Today Bani Walid is finished” sought to make their mark with gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades on a town they say still provides a refuge to many of the overthrown Libyan leader’s followers.

The chaotic, vengeful scenes demonstrated the weakness of the new government’s authority over former rebel militias which owe it allegiance but essentially do what they like.

Libya army has ‘no control’ in Bani Walid: defence minister
30 oktober 2012

Libya’s defence minister said Monday that the army has no control over Bani Walid, one of the last bastions of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, and that armed groups there prevent families from returning home.

“The chief of staff has no control over the town and therefore armed men are able to prevent families from coming back,” Osama al-Jueili told journalists in Tripoli, adding that “gunmen” hold a checkpoint leading to the town.

Fighting in Bani Walid this month displaced tens of thousands of people, Jueili noted, including 30,000 who fled to the nearby town of Tarhuna and 10,000 who went to the capital.

Dit alles is een overweldigend toppunt van politieke hypocrisie. Wie herinnert zich nog de humanitaire interventie, de responsability to protect the people? De volgende documentaire gaat over de misselijk makende voorgeschiedenis van de moordaanslag op Bani Walid.

Libya: Race, Empire, and the Invention of Humanitarian Emergency
by grtv

Based on Prof. Maximilian Forte latest book, “Slouching Towards Sirte: NATO’s War On Libya and Africa” (Baraka Books, Montreal, 2012), and nearly two years of extensive documentary research, this film places the 2011 US/NATO war in Libya in a more meaningful context than that of a war to “protect civilians” driven by the urgent need to “save Benghazi”.

Instead it counters such notions with the actual destruction of Sirte, and the consistent and determined persecution of black Libyans and African migrant workers by the armed opposition, supported by NATO, as it sought to violently overthrow Muammar Gaddafi and the Jamahariyah.

This film takes us through some of the stock justifications for the war, focusing on protecting civilians, the responsibility to protect (R2P), and “genocide prevention,” and examines the racial biases and political prejudice that underpinned them. The role of Western human rights organizations, as well as misinformation spread through “social media” with the intent of fostering fear of rampaging black people, are especially scrutinized.

    Bani Walid Pays Price for Refusing to Accept the Mark of the Beast

    Pan-African News Wire, October 29th, 2012
    By Gerald A. Perreira

    It is a year since the brutal killing of Muammar Qaddafi and the installation of NATO’s proxy government in Tripoli. The installed government is not in control and heavily armed militias and foreign mercenaries are running the show.

    This past year has been one of chaos and savagery. Thousands have been hunted down, imprisoned or killed. Hundreds of thousands have fled to neighboring countries to flee the persecution. The images emerging from the current siege of Bani Walid are gruesome.

    NATO’s henchmen are attacking their own people with bombs and chemical weapons, injuring and killing scores of civilians. Women, children and old people lie maimed or dismembered on the side of the roads, many of them buried in the rubble.

    Residents tell stories of bombs filled with burning toxic gases and white phosphorous raining down from missiles. Scorched victims of the constant shelling are proof of the sinister nature of the Islamist militias and the fascist government forces which have been ordered to use ‘all necessary means to deal with Bani Walid’.

    Where is the ‘international community’ condemnation? Where is Amnesty? And where is NATO? Why has the Security Council not called an emergency session to address this atrocity?

    Slouching Towards Sirte: NATO’s War on Libya and Africa
    Posted on November 10, 2012

    The next time that empire comes calling in the name of human rights, please be found standing idly by

    By Stephen Gowans, 8th November 2012

    Maximilian C. Forte’s new book Slouching Towards Sirte: NATO’s War on Libya and Africa (released November 20) is a searing indictment of NATO’s 2011 military intervention in Libya, and of the North American and European left that supported it. He argues that NATO powers, with the help of the Western left who “played a supporting role by making substantial room for the dominant U.S. narrative and its military policies,” marshalled support for their intervention by creating a fiction that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was about to carry out a massacre against a popular, pro-democracy uprising, and that the world could not stand idly by and watch a genocide unfold.
