NATO To End (Kill Gadhafi) Mission Monday

From a triumphant Reuters:

NATO confirms decision to end Libya mission on Monday

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – NATO confirmed Friday it would end its Libyan mission next week, seven months after launching air and sea operations that helped bring the overthrow and death of Muammar Gaddafi.

We thought that NATO only went into Libya to create a ‘no fly zone’ to protect innocent civilians from being bombarded by Gadhafi’s forces. Isn’t that what the UN mandate said?

Were we misled?

Ambassadors from the 28 NATO states meeting in Brussels formalized a preliminary decision reached a week ago to end the mission that NATO took over on March 31 on October 31.

"Our military job is now done," NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in a message on Twitter confirming the decision.

So the Libyan population is now official ‘safe.’ There won’t be any reprisals against the supporters of the Gadhafi regime. There is no one left to protect for humanitarian reasons. And all those mass graves of Gadhafi supporters can be safely forgotten.

After all, we don’t want the new regime to be hindered in their implementation of Sharia Law by anyone looking over their shoulder.

Thursday, the 15-nation U.N. Security Council unanimously approved a resolution terminating from next Monday a U.N. mandate that set a no-fly zone over Libya and permitted foreign military forces, including NATO, to use "all necessary measures" to protect Libyan civilians.

Oh, our sides. But, then again, has there ever been an honest UN mandate?

The decisions to end the mandate and the NATO mission were made despite a request from Libya’s interim government for the Security Council to wait for the National Transitional Council (NTC) to decide if it wants NATO help to secure its borders…

Libyan Deputy U.N. Ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi asked the U.N. Security Council Wednesday to wait before terminating the mandate. He said the government needed time to assess the security situation in its country and its ability to monitor its borders

Apparently, the new regime is a little worried that they might need some more people bombed, after all.

    The Butchering of Gaddafi Is America’s Crime

    by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

    “Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton appeared like ghoulish despots at a Roman Coliseum, reveling in their Libyan gladiators’ butchery.”

    Last week the whole world saw, and every decent soul recoiled, at the true face of NATO’s answer to the Arab Spring. An elderly, helpless prisoner struggled to maintain his dignity in a screaming swirl of savages, one of whom thrusts a knife [4] up his rectum. These are Europe and America’s jihadis in the flesh. In a few minutes of joyously recorded bestiality, the rabid pack undid every carefully packaged image of NATO’s “humanitarian” project in North Africa – a horror and revelation indelibly imprinted on the global consciousness by the brutes’ own cell phones.

    Nearly eight months of incessant bombing by the air forces of nations that account for 70 percent of the world’s weapons spending, all culminating in the gang-bang slaughter of Moammar Gaddafi, his son Mutassim and his military chief of staff, outside Sirte. The NATO-armed bands then displayed the battered corpses for days in Misurata – the city that had earlier made good on its vow to “purge Black skin” through the massacre and dispersal of 30,000 darker residents of nearby Tawurgha – before disposing of the bodies in an unknown location.

    The saner sections of America’s psychological operations machinery – including their collaborators in the corporate media – were doubtless as horrified as anyone at the Libyan jihadis’ insistence on revealing so graphically to the entire planet the barbaric character of the “revolution.” The months of gushing, ad nauseam press reports of near-universal jubilation in Tripoli and elsewhere at rebel “victories” – always under cover of NATO bombs – now made great sense. Who but those in search of instant martyrdom would voice displeasure at the NATO-jihadi triumph, with murderous fiends such as this roaming the streets?

    Gkahddaphfy’s grave should be easy to find. It will have his arm reaching up out of the soil clutching a NATO jet fighter.

    And tombstone will say,

    “Resist We Much!”
