59. Dear DU friends, this was my last thread (please read)
Edited on Thu Mar-10-11 10:23 PM by Catherina
Dear DU friends,

I've become increasingly concerned with certain aspects of this uprising so this was my last thread and this is my last post at DU.

I see where this is heading and can't support it. The people of Libya will always have my support but what's going on here is internal chaos now being escalated and exploited by internal and external forces.

More relevant to this goodbye is that the United States' political goals are at odds with mine and with my support for sovereignty & independence in the Middle East. I can't continue here and vigorously fight NATOs warmongering plans at the same time.

It's just time for me to go now.

I'll miss many of you and wish you the best, :hug:



God help the Libyan people.

The empire now wants to see events revolve around what Gaddafi may or may not have done, because it needs to intervene militarily in Libya and strike a blow at the revolutionary wave unleashed in the Arab world. Up to now, not one word was said; they kept their mouths shut and carried on with business.

...

If essential human rights are a right of life, is the Council ready to suspend the membership of states that unleash war?

Will it suspend states that finance and supply military aid used by the receiving state in massive, flagrant and systematic violations on human rights and in attacks on civilian populations, such as what is happening in Palestine?

Will it apply that measure against powerful countries that carry out extra-judicial executions on the territory of other states, using high technology such as smart bombs and unmanned planes?

...
