NATO, of course, denied the accusation, insisting care is taken only to strike military targets, when, in fact, it's bombed schools, a university, a hospital, other medical facilities, a medical factory, civilian ports, airports, basic infrastructure, and residential areas, knowing non-military targets were struck.

On June 15, the London Telegraph headlined, "Libyagate: Rabid NATO Bombed Benghazi Civilians, 90 Killed," saying:

"Now that NATO has bombed Benghazi, there is no possible way that the organization can be allowed to continue its pretense of protecting civilians from the Libyan forces. The organizers of the bombing have displayed symptoms of rabies."

In fact, another 100 were wounded, 20 seriously. According to one resident:

"(Was) this an execution or a terrorist act? The killings by NATO are so many that no definition is possible. NATO is performing the most degrading and perverse role I never thought it could do, no respect for anything or anyone. History will never forget this mass murder nor (its) perpetrators...."

"One has to ask how has it come to this, where the terrorists occupy the seats of government in the western world?"

Terror weapons are also freely used, including killer drones, low-flying attack helicopters, depleted uranium, so-called "mincer" anti-personnel missiles containing 80 5-inch-long flechette steel darts (able to penetrate to the bone and cause horrific injuries), and perhaps others yet to be identified. 

In all its wars, America tests new weapons in real time against real targets, including innocent civilians to learn how many mass casualties or destruction can be caused per strike.
