BREAKING NEWS : NATO airstrikes kills son of Gadhafi and 3 grandchildren!

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi survived a NATO air strike that killed his youngest son and three grandchildren and destroyed a Tripoli house, a Libyan government spokesman said on Saturday.

"What we have now is the law of the jungle," government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim told a news conference. "We think now it is clear to everyone that what is happening in Libya has nothing to do with the protection of civilians."

Gaddafi, who seized power in a 1969 coup, is fighting an uprising by rebels who have seized much of the eastern part of the country. British and French-led NATO forces are permitted under a United Nations resolution to attack Gaddafi forces to protect civilians.

You just have to love this comment:

In Washington, the State Department said it was aware of the reports of damage. "If true, we condemn these attacks in the strongest possible terms,"

But I guess killing innocent children is just fine. How insane is our government??

Blow Back Begins: UK, Italy missions burned by Libyans

Libyans burn UK, Italy missions after NATO strike
Angry mobs burn British, Italian embassies in Libya after NATO bombing kills Gadhafi son
Karin Laub and Ben Hubbard, Associated Press, On Sunday May 1, 2011, 9:22 pm

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) -- Angry mobs attacked Western embassies and a U.N. office in Tripoli Sunday after NATO bombed Moammar Gadhafi's family compound in an attack officials said killed the leader's second youngest son and three grandchildren, ages six months to two years.

Russia said the Western alliance exceeded its U.N. mandate of protecting Libyan civilians with the strike.

The vandalized embassies were empty and nobody was reported injured, but the attacks heightened tensions between the Libyan regime and Western powers, prompting the United Nations to pull its international staff out of the capital.

New NATO strike: Libyan Down's Syndrome school reduced to rubble

No one was killed thank goodness, but no more school for these disabled children.

Libya disabled children school hit in NATO strike

TRIPOLI, April 30 (Reuters) - Shattered glass litters the carpet at the Libyan Down's Syndrome Society, and dust covers pictures of grinning children that adorn the hallway, thrown into darkness by a NATO strike early on Saturday.

It was unclear what the target of the strike was, though Libyan officials said it was Muammar Gaddafi himself, who was giving a live television address at the time.

I feel safer now.

I feel safer now.

Tax revolt time...

F this. They're not getting another dollar from me. Period.

Is this

Is this a "conservative" principle? Killing innocent people to further the "empire"? When will this madness end?

Here comes the "blowback" from radical Islam. Our media will merely disguise it as "terrorism" to dupe the sheeple once again!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
~ Peter Marshall, US Senate Chaplain 1947

This

Is a dangerous game of chicken with 1.3 billion people who will see this as the west murdering yet another Islamic leader. This will undoubtedly fan the flames of radical Islam and present a danger to us all.

The Military Industrial Complex is our Nazi Party

It seems that Americans tacitly support the Military Industrial Complex like the Germans supported the Nazis.

Christians seem to have a weakness for blood and destruction. Will Muslims fall to the same evil?

It is not a game of chicken when we hold billions of tons of nuclear explosives.

Free includes debt-free!

So why don't we target all royal families for drone attacks?

The answer: The royal families of Europe own us through their global corporatist Empire.

It is their interests and industry barons that we are fighting for in the middleast, not our own.

We are slaves to them through debt. So we send our sons and daughters to fight for and die for their lords and barons.

And this is why we get to be indoctrinated and watch the royal wedding on every TV channel, radio and newspaper... they own us again and we are just a bunch of backward colonialists (aka, corporate workers) with a colonial governor named Obama who's foreign born father served the queen as her subject.

.

They don't use missiles here in the good ole

USA to shut down our peaceful protests, they unplug us from the matrix and pretend we aren't even here. The world is depending on us nutty Ron Paul supporters, it is time.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

This will foment support for Gadaffi

That is so sad. I can hardly stand to be a part of this country anymore..

I Agree

I think the same thing every time I read a news article about more people getting killed. I think I would rather live in a country that is just a dot on the map.

How many times have I thought this over the decades? Sadly, many, many times. And my parents before me.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

He will not go quietly

Gadhafi will hit us with a terrorist attack. Twice we messed with him - twice he hit us back. Innocent American civilians will die.

Blowback is unintended consequences inflicted to the civilian population due to covert operations by their government. Gadhafi's revenge will not be blowback - because the bombing of Libya is not covert - it is public. Unlike 9/11 we will know why our people were targeted and killed.

Yes

Innocents in this country will pay the price for this horrendous act, not the people that ordered it! As usual... we the people will feel the blow back and the government will wage even more killing and tyranny. I am sure this too will call for a stronger "patriot act to protect us" This country's people have allowed the government to become the terrorists of the world.
The U. S. now stands as the aggressors that invade and occupy other countries on a whim. Sooner or later a country with power is going to seek payback.

Formerly rprevolutionist

You have

the audacity to call something Gadhafi does a "terrorist attack". Anyway I digress.

Something like a nuclear device sailed into JY. Who knows but remaining silent on "why our people were targeted and killed" it part of the problem.

Luke 3:38
Isaiah 43:3-5

The US will always provide the pretext for terror

then provide the terror. No other party needed.

Example from 1986:

Plant bomb in a German disco, blame Libya for bombs, attack Libya to provide pretext for any later event the US wished, plant bomb in Pan Am 103, blame Libya.( it doesn't even have to be a bomb, anything that causes death even accidental)

Same MO for Iraq. Rumsfeld assisted in gassing Kurds, etc.

NATO's Targeted Attack on Gaddafi's Son
by Clive Irving
April 30, 2011 | 10:14pm

The type of NATO airstrike that took out Saif Gaddafi requires precise knowledge of the target's location. Clive Irving on what the killing reveals about NATO's on-the-ground intelligence—and its view of ending the war in Libya.

The attack that killed Saif Gaddafi, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's youngest son, has all the hallmarks of a called-in strike.

Called-in strikes usually involve drones. After repeated requests from NATO, the U.S. assigned two Predator drones to the Libyan theater. Unlike NATO jets, which can take at least 45 minutes from being scrambled to being able to find a target, drones can loiter over Libya for many hours before being given targets. And when they get a time-critical target they can act within seconds.

The 'peaceful protesters

The 'peaceful protesters arent so peaceful after we brought our stealths' to the protest. stealths do not belong in peaceful protests.

My heart is breaking

for all of the little children caught in these horrible wars we have created. So many little ones killed and no one cares. Who will speak for them?

Ron Paul? I think the message

Ron Paul?

I think the message of "What would we do if some other country did this to us?" comes to mind.

Targeting family

is a US classic. They know where the leader is but choose to go after the most vulnerable. Most reports from Europe say his son was living in a house in another neighborhood away from the governmental compound.

They also bombed his house after it was revealed he left it in 1986. They killed his infant daughter.

honestly how is this not US

honestly how is this not US sponsored terrorism?
