Oppose U.S.-NATO Aggression Against Libya

June 26, 2011

Under the leadership of the U.S. government, the NATO alliance keeps escalating its aggression against the sovereign state of Libya.

U.S.-NATO warplanes are escalating their all-out air war, which has already lasted over fourteen weeks. Bombs and cruise missiles are falling on densely populated urban areas in Tripoli and throughout the length and breadth of Libya. There have already been over 11,500 U.S.-NATO aerial attacks on Libya and U.S. and NATO officials have repeatedly asserted that the bombing raids will continue.

The U.S. is also arming rebels affiliated with the National Transitional Council and U.S.-NATO forces have taken control of their armies. These U.S.-client forces are carrying out extensive ground operations.

At the same time, preparations are being made to dispatch U.S. and NATO ground troops to occupy Libya after the country has been subjected to an intense bombing campaign. On May 30, U.S. Admiral Samuel Locklear, commander of the NATO Joint Operations Command in Naples admitted plans to deploy U.S.-NATO ground troops after the removal of the Qaddafi regime.

The immediate aim of the war is to install a pro-U.S. puppet regime. It is the Libyan people who will pay the price. Already, hundreds of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands of people have fled the country.

Over the last several months, peoples throughout the world have come into the streets in opposition to this brutal aggression against a sovereign country. Many governments are condemning the U.S.-NATO war against Libya.

Now is the time to step up our struggles.
