USA discovers human rights in oil-rich Libya

20 03 2011

Something is mighty fishy with this US sudden awareness of human rights in Libya.

The imperial  power that oozed praise on despots like Pinochet and Suharto suddenly cannot abide Gaddafi (their water carrier) in Libya. The World Socialist Website agrees ….

The World Socialist Web Site categorically opposes any military intervention in Libya. The drive toward war, which was given the green light by the UN Security Council on Thursday, has nothing to do with the humanitarian pretexts offered up by the major powers. Rather, it represents the violent imperialist subjugation of a former colony.

The bombing of Libya by French, British and American planes will not protect human life, but will transform the country into a battlefield with thousands of innocent victims. This is an imperialist war. Libya is an oppressed, former colonial country. The WSWS rejects fundamentally and in all circumstances military attacks by imperialist powers on such countries. . .   (more)

” . . .  A military presence in Libya, which is bordered by Egypt to the east and Tunisia to the west, would help the major powers to intimidate revolutionary movements throughout the Arab world. . . “
