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.

Libya: fighting breaks out again in Tripoli

From: Euronews | Oct 14, 2011 | 0 views

Battles have broken out in Libya’s capital, Tripoli, between revolutionary fighters and supporters of ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi. It is the first time the two sides have clashed there since Gaddafi was forced to leave. The trouble reportedly began when loyalists attempted to raise the old green flag – a symbol of Gaddafi’s regime. This led to a fierce gun battle in the Nasr District of the Abu Salim neighbourhood

Rockets and heavy artillery fire were heard close to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s Tripoli compound as rebels battled with government forces on Tuesday.

There was a loud explosion close to the Rixos hotel, where many foreign journalists are staying.

Opposition fighters control the vast majority of the city but Gaddafi loyalists are still holding out in some areas.

Conflicting reports have circulated as to the Libyan leader’s whereabouts. One theory is that he is still in his fortified bunker

euronews correspondent Mustafa Bag is following developments in Libya closely, on the ground. Between periods of calm and violence, he sent this report by phone:

“Control of Tripoli is mostly still in the hands of the rebels. I have been told that the airport is under rebel control, but I can not confirm that because there is intense fighting along the route to the airport, so I can not get to it. Some areas between it and the presidental palace are still in the hands of Gaddafi loyalists.”

Nato planes have continued their Libyan campaign even intercepting one of three scud missiles launched by pro Gaddafi forces from the city of Sirte.

The Pentagon has also revealed that US security personnel have been embedded with opposition forces advising the amateur army.

Although rebels claim to control of much of Tripoli, remnant forces still loyal to Gaddafi are staging a stand particularly at the leader’s heavily fortified compound.

Are we seeing the climax of libyan uprising ?

Adding credibility of an imminent collapse and a climax close to the 6 month old Civil War are the dramatic deflections of his aides- Abdel Salam Jalloud a close aide to Tunisia and Nassr al-Mabrouk who fled with family to Egypt who was a top Security Official on Monday.
Media reports suggest an eastern infiltration of Tripoli by rebels bypassing the anticipated fortifications of Pro-Kaddafi in the western quarters and by arms catchments getting smuggled through Tripoli beaches by sea.
Other reports reported a stiff resistance to Rebel advances still at Briga and Zawiya.
NATO airstrikes targeting sniper positions seem to have helped Rebel take over at the two key sentinel towns.

Rebels close in on Tripoli

As the rebels close in on Tripoli, Muammar Gaddafi, Libya’s leader, spoke on State television.

Gaddafi calls the rebels rats, bent on destroying the Libyan people, however, the rebels are calling it “zero hour” for a beleaguered Gaddafi.

It is reported that Gaddafi’s troops have abandoned their posts at the city’s military airport, but it is understood the base is not in rebel hands.
