Human Rights lobby pushing Interventionism in Syria? NATO sponsored Civil War devastates Libya

Human Rights has become a tool in hands of Interventionism?

Published on Oct 14, 2011 by Euronews

The United Nations’ top human rights official has called for “collective international action” to protect Syria’s civilians, warning of civil war unless what she calls the government’s “ruthless repression” is curbed.

The UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, stopped short of specifically calling for the UN Security Council to authorise the use of force.

She said the death toll from the pro-democracy protests now exceeded 3,000

Aronite thinking is that-

One should note that this Mr.Pillai and the Human Rights lobby have successfully pushed UN to allow Intervention at Libya- and the results are far from flattering. The Nato which had initially been justified on grounds of stopping loss of civilian deaths, later took a partisan stand and turned the Intervention into an alliance with Libyan Rebels.

Human Rights objectives were then the first casualty as military objectives took priority and civilian lives were violated and wasted with impunity. The NATO too threw to winds its professed care for civilian lives – bombing civilian areas and enabling assaults by Rebels on civilian enclaves.

At this very moment a ruthless mop of enclaves of Resistance at Gaddafi home grounds is on, and no one has any monitoring mechanism or record of the civilian casualties and human Rights update.
Human Rights had become now a catchy and convenient tool for western intervention with its own sponsor nations’ economic and political objectives.

Behind this myopic need, the Pan Islamists are seeking a regime change- especially at Syria- after the success at Libya.
Ironically, in this pact with Pan- Islamism to which the Western Economic obsession is blind, Human lives and Rights seem to be the worst victim.

Together they have turned Libya into a nightmare that could have just begun- for after Gaddafi the heavily armed and faction ridden militias can hardly be expected to care more for Human Rights and even if the further civil war gets tackled- the Sharia Constitution is hardly a model of human liberties and gender rights.

Battles have broken out in Libya’s capital, Tripoli, between revolutionary fighters and supporters of ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi.

They have also set up checkpoints around the city and say they are trying to root out Gaddafi loyalists.

The rebels have had great success in taking control of large parts of Tripoli. But there are still parts that they can’t even enter, and Gaddafi supporters look like they are willing to fight to the end.
