The U.S.-NATO war on the African nation of Libya is not for humanitarian purposes when a major university is the target. – Photo: Nasser University student Mohammed Al-Alam
The NATO war against Libya is not a humanitarian endeavor. It is a blatant war of aggression and a violation of international law.
War crimes are being committed by NATO. Hospitals and universities have been bombed. Civilian infrastructure has been brutally destroyed.
Recently Tripoli’s Nasser University was bombed. University staff were injured and killed. There is no justification for this.
What NATO is doing is taking advantage of internal divisions to destroy Libya as a country.
How does the destruction of a university protect civilians, the purported reason the U.S. and NATO invaded Libya? – Photo: Nasser University student Mohammed Al-Alam
The unspoken objective is to destroy Libya’s economy and to prevent it from developing as a nation-state. This is why schools and universities, hospitals, shipyards, factories, not to mention residential areas, have been the target of NATO bombings.
Staff were killed by the NATO airstrike on Nasser University. Far more gruesome photos are available at http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=25221.
Readers are informed in advance that the photographic evidence that follows is disturbing. [Only three of 14 photos are reproduced here. Go to Global Research to see the rest. – ed.]
These photographs were taken by Mohammed Al-Alam, a student at Nasser University. The photographs were directly forwarded to me.
