Break The Siege Of Misrata.

leave a comment »

The open complacency amongst Western leaders when faced with the siege of Misrata should be shocking to us, but it isn’t.

The West and NATO have shown how useless they are at protecting Libyan civilians, how uncoordinated their actions are and why Gaddafi’s murder of Libyans must be stopped.

Some have argued that Gaddafi wouldn’t have murdered thousands had he taken Benghazi, but the actions of his forces at Misrata make that a lie.

Gaddafi has no compunction when it comes to murdering Libyans as he’s already done by the hundreds and thousands, and will kill as many as necessary to stay in power, that is the nature of this dictator and his grubby sons.

In many ways the West learnt very little from the conflict in the Balkans, invariably acting too late and with too little determination.

So if the West is truly serious about saving Libyans then concerted action needs to be taken at Misrata. Without delay.
