As a result, many outraged Americans and others globally denounce him, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in a stinging June 15 indictment, saying:

"Why....is NATO....using (UN) Resolution 1973 as a pretext to assassinate (Gaddafi) and create regime change....NATO and America are trying to recolonize Africa through AFRICOM....Look at the arrogance of Hillary Clinton (in) Addis Ababa, the capital of the African Union. That's some gall, to go right to us and tell us like children what she wants us to do." Calling NATO a "coalition of demons," he accused member countries of lawlessly promoting regime change in Libya.

Earlier, Farrakhan said America lacked moral authority to attack Libya, denouncing Obama's hypocrisy, asking: 

"Who in the hell do you think you are" deciding who may or may not lead Libya or any other country. Growing numbers worldwide agree, including Hugo Chavez last March, accusing Washington of "imperial madness," saying:

"We don't support invasions or massacres, or anything like that no matter who does it. A campaign of lies is being spun together regarding Libya. The US government is behind the campaign to remove Gaddafi. They are the masters of war....They want to seize Libya's oil. The lives of Libya's people don't matter to them at all....It is deplorable (that) the United Nations" supports the "warmongering....Yankee empire, (inflicting) more suffering for the people, more death."

In fact, four months of terror bombing caused mass casualties and destruction, including at least nine civilians and two infants, murdered on June 19 when a three-story Suq Al Juma residential structure was destroyed.

On June 1, Reuters reported that "NATO's bombing campaign has killed 718 Libyan civilians, government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said on Tuesday." Another 4,067 were wounded, 433 seriously. The figures were current through May 26. 

With intensified terror bombing continuing day and night, the total may now approach or top 1,000 killed and thousands more injured, the same civilians Obama promised to protect.
