New York Times: Lying about Libya and Palestine - by Stephen Lendman
Note: A follow-up article will continue the narrative below. Currently, events in Tripoli are fluid.
Progressive Radio News Hour contributor Mahdi Nazemroaya's overnight email said:
"NATO landed insurgents in (Tripoli) harbor. They are attacking my hotel. I almost got shot. They're still lying a lot (about claims of controlling the capital), but we are in real danger."
He's saying that armed guerrilla gangs, mercenaries, indistinguishable from (also armed) Tripoli residents, are waging street warfare.
Russia Today reported about 1,300 deaths. No one knows for sure. However, events are fast-moving and chaotic.
On Russia Today, Nazemroaya also said heavy looting occurred, including insurgents breaking into hotel rooms and ransacking them. In addition, he said NATO WANTS A BLOODBATH.
In fact, they're getting one, exacerbated by intense terror bombing, deliberately targeting civilians.
