stoppa det livsfarliga Responsibility to Protect-snacket

‘Libya & Syria steps in West’s way to challenge China’

Pakistan Warns US Over Airspace, US then promptly murders 8 Pakistanis in drone attack.

”..those who take the time to look behind the curtain see a true terror at work. It is a terror based not in a cave in Pakistan’s frontier, but upon Wall Street, their enablers in Washington, and the myriad of think-tanks that peddle their agenda. In turn, it is these facilitators, not bearded cavemen, that ceaselessly and systematically destroy America by bleeding it dry through endless wars, bankrupting it through larcenist Ponzi-schemes, and squandering the good will, awe, and inspiration the United States once lent the world.”

William Engdahl – Humanitarian Neo-colonialism: Framing Libya and Reframing War

The most remarkable facet of NATO’s war against Libya is the fact that ”world opinion,” that ever so nebulous thing, has accepted an act of overt military aggression against a sovereign country guilty of no violation of the UN Charter in an act of de facto neo-colonialism, a ‘humanitarian’ war in violation of basic precepts of the laws of nations. The world has accepted it without realizing the implications if the war against Gaddafi’s Libya is allowed to succeed in forced regime change. At issue is not whether or not Gaddafi is good or evil. At issue is the very concept of the civilized law of nations and of just or unjust wars.

The Libya campaign represents the attempt to force application of a dangerous new concept into the norms of accepted international law. That concept is what is termed by its creators, “Responsibility to Protect.”

What is emerging, with the aggression against Libya as a major test case in the reframing of military intervention as responsibility to protect, is acceptance of radical new forms of US-orchestrated military intervention, with or without UN Security Council sanction, a radical new form of neo-colonialism, a major new step on the road to a New World Order, the Pentagon’s much-sought Full Spectrum Dominance

Stefan Lindgren reder också på ett bra sätt ut detta livsfarliga begrepp, Reponsibility to Protect, man har börjat vifta omkring sig med – Problemet med lata journalister

Att hålla mer än en tanke i luften samtidigt upplevs som en svårighet. Hörde Aftonbladets Karin Alfredsson i ”Godmorgon, världens” panel. En hygglig tjej i många sammanhang, men som det visade sig har fallit pladask för Vita husets ”Reponsibility to Protect”-retorik

I ledande kretsar i USA talar man öppet om att USA står över folkrätten. När USA kan genomdriva FN-resolutioner i dess intresse gör man det. Annars gör man i alla fall som man vill. Undfallenhet från svensk sida kan kallas mycket – handelspolitik, ekonomisk nödvändighet – men var snäll och kalla det inte lojalitet mot FN:s principer.

En annan fråga, som jag återkommer till, är om Gaddafi verkligen gjort sig skyldig till ”slakt på den egna befolkningen” som Karin Alfredsson påstår. Det är en mediasanning, men vilken säck har den varit i innan den hamnade i Karins påse?
