According to plenglish.com, an antiwar
website, with the pretence "to protect civilians and
their residential areas" (words of British Foreign
Secretary William Hague), warplanes of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization (NATO) dropped about 45 bombs with depleted
uranium warheads that not only killed a score
of civilians but leaves long-term environmental hazard
which will severely compromise the health of Libya people,
regardless they are against or support the current government.
Depleted uranium is a radioactive substance
contained in the black dust that emanates to the atmosphere
after the explosion. It can harm the kidneys and cause
lung and bone cancers, skin disorders, neuro-cognitive
disorders, chromosome damages, immunodeficiency syndromes
and strange kidney and intestinal diseases.
David Wilson, an expert of the Stop
the War Coalition in Britain, recalled attacks against
Baghdad, after which radiation levels exceeded between 1,000
and 1,900 times normal levels in residential
areas, and indicated this time the enormous bombs,
of about 907 kg each, and the missiles contained the highly
harmful radioactive mineral were launched from allied ships
toward the land of Libya. (More details at plenglish.com)
If the observations by Wilson is accurate,
then what is the West's real agenda behind Libya air strikes?
Protecting lives or executing a genocide?
The conclusion might not be that difficult
to draw, since the original sins of Libyans have committed
are horrendous in the eye of the Christian crusaders from
the West: being Muslims, living in a land rich with oil resource, refusing to make themselves reliable lap dogs of the Western masters …. Any of those could
warrant for a final solution ...
