“Waves of NATO war planes have repeatedly struck Tripoli in the most sustained daylight bombardment of the Libyan capital yet. By the afternoon, air raids were hitting parts of the city several times an hour, hour after hour, smashing buildings, rattling windows and sending clouds of grey smoke into the sky,” reports the London Mail June 7. – Photo: KeystoneUSA-ZUMA, Rex Features
The Washington Post headlined, “Libya government fails to prove claims of NATO casualties,” and the Los Angeles Times headline blared, “Libya officials put a spin on a conflict.” These bombs and missiles are not falling in empty spaces: People are all over Tripoli going about their lives just as in any other major metropolitan city of about 2 million people.
These bombs and missiles are not falling in empty spaces. Tripoli is a major metropolitan city of about 2 million people.Meanwhile, NATO has a spin machine of its own: NATO says it is making “significant progress” in protecting Libyan civilians. “What we did target was the military intelligence headquarters in downtown Tripoli,” the alliance said.
