Genocide in Bani Walid
Obama bears full responsible for massacring Libyan civilians.
by Stephen Lendman
Washington bears full responsibility for waging multiple wars on humanity. It planned, initiated and controls direct and proxy conflicts across North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.
Bani Walid made headlines for three weeks. Genocide threatens its residents. Obama's dirty hands are all over this crime of war and against humanity. Media scoundrels ignore it. More on this below.
America's proxy war on Syria continues. Washington's directly responsible for recruiting, arming, funding and directing Syrian death squads.
On October 24, Voice of Russia reported that Russian Armed Forces chief General Nikolai Makarov said:
"The General Staff has information that the militants, who are fighting against Syrian government troops, are armed with the portable air defence systems of various countries, including the Stinger of U.S. production."
Disclaimers notwithstanding, Washington is directly responsible for supplying them. Makarov added:
"The US denies this fact. They say that they did not deliver anything to them (Syrian militants). However, we have reliable information that Syrian militants are armed with foreign portable air defence systems, including U.S. air defence systems."
They didn't arrive out of thin air. Voice of Russia said an "informed Syrian source" said "the US had made a decision to hand over a consignment of MANPADS to (anti-Assad) militants that are fighting against Damascus."
Man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) are shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles (SAMs).
On October 24, Russia Today (rt.com) headlined "US blocks Russia's draft statement in UN on peaceful resolution of Bani Walid violence," saying:
Russia's UN envoy, Vitaly Churkin, said the move "can't be serious. Blocking a draft statement that called (for) solv(ing) the country's political problems without violence is very strange."
Not at all when Washington plans genocide to assert control. Churkin knows it but used diplomatic language. Russia's statement called for "tak(ing) urgent steps to resolve the conflict by peaceful means and to preserve the rights of all Libyan citizens."
