“Saving Lives in Libya”: Tens of Thousands of Bombs and Missiles. 9240 Strike Sorties…

Killing is a humanitarian undertaking.

War is a peacekeeping operation.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization confirmed on October 4, 2011 that it has conducted a total of 24,789 sorties, including 9,240 strike sorties, since March31, under Operation UNIFIED PROTECTOR

Multiply the number of “humanitarian” strike sorties by the number of bombs and missiles carried by each aircraft and you will have an approximate tally of  the number of lives which NATO claims to have saved under its “Responsibility to Protect” RP2.

The bombing campaign, which is now in its seventh month has been extended to the end of December.

The media is complicit in obfuscating the thousands of deaths resulting from NATO bombings.

What is at stake is the destruction of an enitre country.
