A news report on PressTv says the Arab League wanted a "no-fly-zone" but not with the killing of civilians and bombing of Libya!
Are these muthaz serious? What the hell did they think Obomber was going to do? Play nice with the Libyans until Gaddafi fell over from natural causes?
I am f*cking pissed with the Arab League and with the South African government. They sold out the greater principle of using diplomacy to end what is happening in Libya.
The West only knows how to kill brown and black people when they want to steal their sh*t. War for the empire and its attachments is diplomacy!
My boy D. points out that the murderous fools in the US/France/Britain are working on election strategies.
A war to whip up some national frenzy and moral righteousness is one sure way of dealing with sagging domestic fortunes.
I suggest the Arab League take decisive action to stop the mad mongering West from reducing Libya to Iraq/Afghanistan.
Russia, China, India, and the African Union are calling the attack on Libya "indiscriminate and disproportionate" according to The Voice of Russia.
They are absolutely on-point. There is no place for a war like this anymore. The West must be civilized and brought into humanity.
I mean the US is using its B2 stealth bombers to drop bombs on a 'third world' country! Britain is firing cruise missiles from submarines and France is leading the bombing offensive with state of the art fighters even as I write.
Libya does not have the military capacity to defend itself from this kind of lopsided and inhumane attack. What we are witnessing is nothing short of a brutal and murderous gang bang.
Here in South Africa the mini-me mimicry is hardly touched on in the Sunday papers. Zuma declared war on Libya and most of the citizenry including the media just went on whining about tender fraud and government inefficiencies.
D. also reminded me that BRIC has not formally included South Africa yet. I hope they reject the colonial lapdogs with contempt now that they have seen just how shallow and selfish President Zuma and his government of re-fried sellouts can be.
Still, I don't expect that Zuma will be called to explain why he voted to unleash a Western war on an African country!
There is a little more than just a sad irony in the fact that tomorrow (Monday 21) is Human Rights Day in South Africa (a public holiday)... obviously a good time to hit the malls and buy more sh*t.
STOP THE WAR ON LIBYA!!!!!!!!!!
