Libya, Good To Remember.

In a few years’ time the conflict in Libya will take on its own myths, why certain things happened and how, etc etc

So now it is good to remember what Gaddafi and his sons were intent on doing should the Libyan people revolt: kill civilians.

The BBC has more:

“In The Hague on Tuesday, Mr Moreno-Ocampo said: “We have evidence that after the Tunisia and Egypt conflicts in January, people in the regime were planning how to control demonstrations inside Libya.

The planning at the beginning was to use tear gas and [if that failed to work]… shooting,” he told Reuters.

Doctors said last week that at least 200 people had been killed there since the uprising began on 17 February – a figure likely to have risen in recent days. “
