Counterpunch asks “Who Will Save Libya From Its Western Saviours?”

Jean Bricmont and Diana Johnstone at Counterpunch take a scalpel to the arguments for the current NATO war with/at/against/for Libya.  They explain,

The bombing is targeting civilian infrastructure, to deprive the majority of the population living in territory loyal to Gaddafi of basic necessities, food and water, supposedly to inspire the people to overthrow Gaddafi.  The war to “protect civilians” has clearly turned into a war to terrorize and torment them, so that the NATO-backed TNC can take power.

 

The rest of Bricmont and Johnstone’s excellent article can be read at Counterpunch.org.
