Ireland has the Member of Parliament Clare Daly -“I voted against this report. Its timing is quite appropriate, coming, as it does, a few short weeks after the 11th anniversary of the day Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was killed during the NATO attack on Libya: sodomized with a bayonet and shot in the head. The NATO intervention in Libya, carried out in the name of protecting freedom, democracy and human rights, is something we would do well to remember as NATO plays out its proxy war in Ukraine in the name of, you guessed it, freedom, democracy and human rights .”
Gadaffi was deposed and tortured by Nato-backed militants in October 2011, with his mutilated corpse left in a meat market in the city of Misrata. Once an oil-rich and prosperous nation, Libya descended into anarchy after his assassination and an Amnesty International report earlier this year described conditions there as hellish.
Daly concluded by asking EU legislators if this is what they want for their own countries.
-”What happens after NATO intervenes in your country on this basis? Terror, death, lawlessness, rape, poverty, famine. Libya is a country torn apart by conflict, its economy shattered, its population – formerly the richest in Africa – driven to and fro in poverty. Migrants are bought and sold in slave markets. It is a country of mass graves, of crimes against humanity. This is NATO’s legacy.”NATO leaves behind conflict, terror, death, lawlessness, rape, poverty, famine and broken economy – Jenny Piper
