An attempted assassination of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi went according to plan. Except Gaddafi was not killed, however his youngest son, Saif al-Arab, and three of his grandchildren were. Here at From the Trenches we told you that the predator drone has become the United States’ favorite means of political assassination. Of course targeting foreign heads of state violates international law, but since when has the United States or its allies cared about any law.
In 1986 the US bombed Libya and killed Gaddafi’s adopted daughter, Hanna. So we have now killed two of his children and three of his grandchildren. Of course NATO is denying targeting Gaddafi; I guess it was just a matter of chance that bombs that were supposed to destroy military targets hit his residence where he and his family were staying.
It was reported that the so called rebels were cheering in the streets in response to the deaths of Gaddafi’s son and his three little grandchildren under the age of twelve. Animals. But no worse than the mad dogs at NATO that ordered the strike.
I just got through paying $4.00 per gallon for gasoline at a Shell Station. Dutch Royal Shell is owned by Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and her cousin Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. So what do we know about Dutch Royal Shell?
“In the beginning of 1996, several human rights groups brought cases to hold Shell accountable for alleged human rights violations in Nigeria, including summary execution, crimes against humanity, torture, inhumane treatment and arbitrary arrest and detention. In particular, Shell stood accused of collaborating in the execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight other leaders of the Ogoni tribe of southern Nigeria, who were hanged in 1995 by Nigeria’s then military rulers. The lawsuits were brought against Royal Dutch Shell and Brian Anderson, the head of its Nigerian operation. In 2009, Shell agreed to pay $15.5m in a legal settlement. Shell has not accepted any liability over the allegations against it.
In 2009, Shell was the subject of an Amnesty International report into the deterioration of human rights as a consequence of Shell’s activities in the Niger Delta. In particular, Amnesty criticised the continuation of gas flaring and Shell’s slow response to oil spills.
In 2010, a leaked cable revealed that Shell claims to have inserted staff into all the main ministries of the Nigerian government and know “everything that was being done in those ministries”, according to Shells top executive in Nigeria. The same executive also boasted that the Nigerian government had forgotten about the extent of Shell’s infiltration.”
The last time gasoline reached $4.00 per gallon a barrel of oil cost $150. Today oil is $108 a barrel. At $150 it was admitted that they were stealing us blind through speculation. Now they are just plain robbing us without rhyme or reason.
When the whole Libyan issue materialized it was made clear that the United States gets none of its oil from Libya. But who does? British Petroleum and Dutch Royal Shell. So while the American people are acting like infatuated children over this royal wedding, the United States is murdering little children in Libya for the Queens. (Has everyone seen the dress?) It is not the Union Jack they are burning in the streets of Tripoli, it is Old Glory.
My God people, what have we become? What has happened to our moral outrage? On March 6, 1968, a unit of the United States Army murdered an entire village in My Lai, Viet Nam; men, women, and little children. The American people responded with one voice in saying, “Not, by God, will we allow anything like this to be done in our name and with our sanction.”
Have we become so desensitized that we now sanction the killing of little children and allow the matter to be dismissed with a NATO statement saying we do not target individuals? Well I guess that’s true because they targeted his whole family.
How many weeks now have the talking heads been saying we need to “kill,” “take out,” and “murder” Gaddafi? And now they expect us to believe that they did not target the man’s house with every intent of killing everyone inside? I am so disgusted. These people are on a par with Hannibal Lector. They are sick. They like killing.
And the Christians in this country seem to be giving the whole affair their stamp of approval. I have heard Pat Roberts openly advocate for the assassination of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and an attack on Iran. This is a man of our God? If these kinds of actions have become not only tolerable, but acceptable, by American Christians then we are most assuredly headed down the garden path to Sodom and Gomorrah.
We will be judged and may God help us if we even still retain the right to ask.
