Flashback:UK press glorifies savage assassination of President Gaddafi by NATO mercenaries

The sheer euphoria of the entire British press over President Muammar Gaddafi's savage assassination by NATO's mercenaries on the 8th month of the genocidal invasion of Libya betrayed an absolute moral bankruptcy of the predatory imperialist alliance of NATO countries, Arab monarchies and Israel.

The sheer euphoria of the entire British press over President Muammar Gaddafi's savage assassination by NATO's mercenaries on the 8th month of the genocidal invasion of Libya betrayed an absolute moral bankruptcy of the predatory imperialist alliance of NATO countries, Arab monarchies and Israel.

“Today, the government of Libya announced the death of Muammar Qaddafi. [...]  Today, we can definitively say that the Qaddafi regime has come to an end. [...]  So this is a momentous day in the history of Libya. [...]

Our brave pilots have flown in Libya’s skies, our sailors have provided support off Libya’s shores, and our leadership at NATO has helped guide our coalition. Without putting a single U.S. service member on the ground, we achieved our objectives, and our NATO mission will soon come to an end.

This comes at a time when we see the strength of American leadership across the world. We’ve taken out al Qaeda leaders, and we’ve put them on the path to defeat. We’re winding down the war in Iraq and have begun a transition in Afghanistan. And now, working in Libya with friends and allies, we’ve demonstrated what collective action can achieve in the 21st century.”

Flashback to November 2011:



[emphasis added]



“ ‘I will fight to the death’ says Bashar Assad. (*)  For God’s sake, against whom are you fighting? Fighting to the death against your own people is not heroism but cowardice.

If you want to see someone who has fought to the death against his own people, just look at the Nazi Germany, at Hitler, at Mussolini, at Romania’s Ceausescu.

If you can’t draw any lesson from [the fates of] these [leaders], then look at Libya’s leader who has been pointing gun at his own people, who has been making exactly the same remarks as you are making and who [ended up getting] killed, in a way none of us would desire, only 32 days ago.

Bashar Assad, if you are talking about fighting to the death against a [foreign] intervention on your territory, then this begs the question as to why you haven’t fought to the death for [recapturing] the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights? Why didn't you show your bravery there, why can't you show it? ”


[Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, speech at the parliamentary group meeting of his Justice and Development Party (AKP), Turkey’s parliament, Ankara, 22 November 2011]  


source:  'Halkinla savasmak kahramanlik degildir Esad', Yeni Safak, 22 November 2011




(*)  editorial note:  Mr Erdogan is referring to a recent interview of Syria’s President Bashar Assad with The Sunday Times. Instead of providing a proper transcript of this interview, The Sunday Times presented it as a news report. Here is the relevant section:


[Assad] was more preoccupied with the question of whether Arab leaders sympathetic to the West were preparing the way for international intervention, as they had in Libya. Turkey was reported to be considering proposals for a no-fly zone and a buffer area on the Syrian side of their shared border to protect civilians from bombing. Suspicion is mounting that some form of military action against Syria may follow. If so, would he fight and die, I asked. “Definitely, this goes without saying and is an absolute.” [Assad replied].
