Besieging and Terror Bombing Sirte - by Stephen Lendman

My latest account of NATO's rape of Libya.

In his latest article, Paul Craig Roberts calls America "utterly corrupt" and "certainly no 'light unto the world.' "

In her latest article, Diana Johnstone said "Western 'democracy' is in danger of being gradually reduced to a mere ideological excuse to attack, ravage and pillage other people's countries."

It's official policy, in fact, because the business of America is war, permanent war against humanity by military, financial, political and other means.

As a result, terrorizing and destroying the Libya that was continues, focused heavily on what's called Gaddafi loyalists' last stronghold.

No matter the death, destruction and human misery already caused.

Or that Tripoli residents are now terrorized by a continuing bloodbath. Anyone believed to be pro-Gaddafi is under threat of death. 

No matter also that Sirte, a city of 100,000, is being terror bombed relentlessly, perhaps intending to turn it to rubble. It wouldn't be the first time Washington and its Western allies did it. More on that below.

Sirte is also surrounded. On August 30, The New York Times said rebels gave Gaddafi loyalists until Saturday to surrender "or face military action."

On September 1, Reuters said Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) extended the deadline one week. 

Earlier, NTC spokesman Col. Ahmed Omar Bani told a Benghazi press conference:

"We have been given no indication of a peaceful surrender." After months of conflict and unknown numbers of Sirte casualties, he shamelessly added:

"We continue to seek a peaceful solution, but on Saturday we will use different methods against these criminals."

According to deputy TNC head Ali Tarhouni: 

"Sometimes to avoid bloodshed you must shed blood, and the faster we do this the less blood we will shed."
