Libya – claims of mass Rape committed by Pro Gaddafi forces are BS

June 19, 2011

Okay you want proof that there is mass rape going on in Libya, well, brace yourself, here it is:

lol 'cmon barbie lets go party' Look away, children! It’s too horriffic! (image source)

The only rape going on is the raping and pillaging of Libya by NATO, under an illegitimate pretext.

The Libya war propaganda drive has plunged to new depths of cynicism, depravity, and a downright embarrassing lack of credibility.

Over a week after the ICC’s completely baseless claims of ‘rape being used as a weapon’ by Gaddafi’s forces, today CNN is running a propaganda set-piece that is so blatantly invented it makes one cringe with embarrassment for this rabble of liars and propagandists.

CNN claims that rebel forces have found mobile phone footage on ‘Gaddafi loyalists’, which allegedly shows them ‘raping women and torturing people’. Lo and behold, the story completely falls apart upon the most cursory inspection.

CNN plainly admits that they “cannot confirm when or where the video was shot“. To make matters worse for the propagandists behind this nonsense, there is no date to the video, and the men in the video are not even wearing Libyan Army clothing – they are dressed in civilian attire. But it gets better.

Their story revolves completely around this unverifiable mobile phone footage, and the testimony of NATO’s proxy ‘rebels’. On top of this CNN doesn’t reveal who their source is, and instead they parrot baseless claims from rebel spokespeople:

“We were able to confirm that rape was used as a weapon of war because it was systematic.”
~ Rebel spokesman Abdullah al-Kabeir

Without performing even the most basic journalistic duty of providing evidence, CNN simply forwards this completely unfounded claim from a rebel spokesperson.

Not saying Gaddafi is some angel, but there’s a reason that the crown operatives are so hellbent on getting Gaddafi and many other arab rulers out of power right now. And that reason, I promise, is not anything that benefits the people of that region. Guarantee it. Libya it seems wasn’t doing too badly under Gaddafi, and the people of Libya are mostly with Gaddafi, or more of them would be backing the rebels. In Egypt, they will probably regret their overthrow of Mubarak and now the military are ruling there. Overthrowing the strongmen in the Middle East does seem to be a bit like picking a scab. Before you know it blood is running everywhere. And at the end of it all you are simply left with a new scab, as the natural order of things is restored.

Wow, war sure helps me stop thinking about how most of ‘the economy’ is a black hole/ponzi scheme, run on fake usury-money hand crafted (they pressed a button) by the Bank of England, Fed etc!

Caveat: All large armed groups probably contain some dirty scumbags who commit rape. That’s just how things go. No doubt some people in Gaddafi’s forces, and I would guess the same or more among the rebels, have committed rape. It’s just a statistical certainty. But the accusation here is of rape as a mass strategy, which if true is a heinous war crime. But as of now these claims appear to be unsubstantiated propaganda. Remember, once upon a time it was a certainty that German soldiers ate babies – if you were reading the British press during WW1.
