Libya: where are Russia and China now ?
NATO aircraft are still conducting massive missile and bomb strikes on the city of Sirte, home town of Muammar Gaddafi, not allowing anyone to escape. The city perimeter is surrounded by so called rebel check points, behind which there are special forces units from Britain, France, Qatar and United Arab Emirates. “Protect civilians” UN and NATO said…

Nato has an UN-mandate to bomb Libya with uranium bombs

juli 4, 2011

The UN is specialized in the removal of depleted uranium in Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Gaza and Libanon. Why then NATO has an UN-mandate to bomb Libya with bombs of depleted uranium ?

Did the UN signed a deal with NATO (‘You may continue bombing with uranium bombs if we may clean up the uranium’) ?

Libya: the ‘no-fly zone’ of the United Nations…

… ‘A massive gulf is now opening between what the revolutionary forces expect from NATO and what NATO is willing to give them.

What did the Security Council vote on?
March 18, 2011|By Paul Armstrong, CNN

Acting under Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter, which provides for the use of force if needed, the Council adopted Resolution 1973 by 10 votes to zero, with five abstentions, authorizing member states “to take all necessary measures” to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack …while excluding an occupation force.”

The resolution follows an arms embargo that the Council imposed last month when it unanimously approved sanctions against Libya, freezing the assets of its leaders and referring the ongoing violence against civilian demonstrators to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

What does the resolution mean?

An U.N.-backed international force will enforce a no-fly zone over Libya which will effectively ground Libya’s military aircraft. All flights — except those for humanitarian purposes — will be banned from Libyan airspace.

This force will also have the power to launch air strikes against Libyan ground forces — from tanks, artillery and missiles to their communications and command and control infrastructure — if they are considered to be a threat against the civilian population.

According to Barak Seener, Research Fellow in Middle Eastern Studies at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, the wording in the resolution permitting member states to use “all necessary means” also makes pre-emptive strikes from the air at the regime’s forces legitimate.

“It’s intended to force Gadhafi back and tilt the balance in the rebel’s favor,” he told CNN.

“I think it will embolden protesters across the Arab world as it is a precedent to oppressive regimes. The resolution is saying human rights violations will not go unabated and there will be a response.”
