UN Security Council: Under intense pressure from the U.S., Britain and France, the Security Council passed 10 to 0 with 5 abstentions (China, Russia, Brazil, India and Germany) resolution 1973, authorizing the imposition of a “no-fly zone” on Libya, and the use of “all necessary measures” short of an invasion –including naval blockades, bombardment and air strikes –against Col. Muammar Gaddafi’s forces in order to “protect civilians and civilian populated areas” in rebel held Eastern part of Libya. 

Clearly the U.S. has the major interest in Libyan oil but so do the abstainers have an interest as users of the world’s oil supplies. That oil is vital to their industries, commerce and economy. It is not however, an excuse to ignore the Charter of the United Nations “To maintain International Peace and Security”. A no-fly zone requires an act of war to start and enforce. We live in a world well advanced into the scientific, technological revolution that took off after WW II. We have almost simultaneous information of world events as they are happening. Why then push the lie that Gaddafi’s forces are attacking unarmed peaceful demonstrators?

Shades of Joseph Goebbels Nazi minister, who said something like “Tell a lie often enough, loud enough, and it will be believed.” (not necessarily an accurate quote.) That was then, this is the 21st century, a century of almost instant communication. We have seen these “unarmed peaceful” demonstrators with arms!

A call:We call on all peace loving Canadians, Canadian Peace movements to call for a halt to this imperialist act of war. Libya, its people must decide if they wish to continue independent of the US-Israel axis, plus its coalition. NO! to aggression, YES to protecting people.
