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

Dispaly of Savagery-Syrian civilians flee in exodus to Turkey crossing border- Gadaffi stays put despite airstrikes

Bloodshed assured as Gadaffi and Assad remain in power

From: Euronews | Jun 8, 2011 | 101 views

Nearly four months after the Arab Spring brought about seismic political changes in Tunisia and Egypt and continuing unrest in Yemen and Bahrain.

The fate of Muammer Gadaffi of Libya and President Assad of Syria hang in the balance.

Gadaffi came to power following a military coup 42-years ago, Assad took the reins after his fathers death in 2000.

The situation in both Libya and Syria are similar but different.

Violence and repression are common to both regimes yet the West has given differing responses.

Libya: fighting in Misrata; diplomacy in Abu Dhabi

From: Euronews | Jun 9, 2011 | 1,010 views
As NATO planes resumed their strikes over Tripoli in one of the heaviest weeks so far of bombardments, there is movement on the diplomatic front against the Gaddafi regime.

The stalemate surrounding flashpoint towns such as Misrata, where attack and counter attack produce more deaths but little progress, is proving frustrating for the international community.

Even Senagal’s president, a one-time loyal supporter of the Libyan leader, is going to Benghazi to meet the rebellion’s leaders.

Turkey has opened its borders to Syrian refugees as they flee their town, fearing military violence could move to a new heightened level.

Ankara has remonstrated with Damascus, urging the government to curb its aggression against its own civilians.

Dozens of those who arrive wounded are given medical care once they cross the frontier at Hatay.

Their town of Jisr al-Shughour was where 120 Syrian troops were recently killed.

Gaddafi speaks as NATO pounds Tripoli

From: Euronews | Jun 7, 2011 | 515 views

NATO war planes have pounded the Libyan capital Tripoli in their most sustained bombardment since airstrikes began in March.

In wave after wave, the jets struck at different parts of city. Libyan officials said at least 31 people were killed in over 60 strikes.

At the same time, Libyan state television showed images of Muammar Gaddafi at an unidentified location, apparently meeting tribal leaders. The message from the Libyan leader was that he will stay in Tripoli, dead or alive.

Shuttle Endeavour completes its final flight

The US space shuttle Endeavour has safely landed after its final flight.

The ship touched down at its Florida home base in the early hours, completing its 25th and last mission. It caps a 16-day voyage to deliver a premier science experiment to the International Space Station.

Endeavour can now look forward to a life on public display in Los Angeles. The United States is retiring its three-ship fleet due to high operating costs and to free up funds to develop new spacecraft that can travel beyond the space station’s 220-mile-high (346-km-high) orbit.

UN says Japan underestimated tsunami nuclear risk

Japan underestimated the risk of a killer wave hitting its now-crippled Fukushima power plant according to UN atomic safety inspectors.

To avoid a repeat of the crisis, they have urged a rethink in the way nuclear facilities are built, run and regulated. Handing over a summary of their preliminary report to the Japanese government, the IAEA team said lessons could be learned globally.
