There was hope that world be be better peaceful place with Barak Obama in White House but the truth is the world has more unrest than under Bush regime. US and its European allies are interferring in Libya, Syria with UN Security Council Resollution. The UN Security Council is under US, UK, France, China and Russia dictatorship where these countries will get whatever they want. These countries will try to implement the UN Resolution by force in Muslim countries ignoring all UN Security Council resolution against Isreal which is protected by US and its European allies.
US, France, UK are once again bombing Libya killing innocent civilians instead of providing protection. There are once again lies on mainstream media CNN, BBC promoting propaganda. RT is reporting the news which not many people watch. CNN reported that Gaddafi forces are now using cluster bombs on civilians which are banned. The cluster bombs and chemical weapons were used by US and Isreal on civilians in Fallujah.
|Lebanon, 1978, 1982 and 2006Extensively used by Israel during the 1978 Israeli invasion of Lebanon, the 1982-2000 occupation of Lebanon and in the 2006 Lebanon War.During the Israeli-Lebanese conflict in 1982, Israel used cluster munitions, many of them American-made, on targets in southern Lebanon. Israel also used cluster bombs in the 2006 Lebanon War.Two types of cluster munitions were transferred to Israel from the U.S. The first was the CBU-58 which uses the BLU-63 bomblet. This cluster bomb is no longer in production. The second was the MK-20 Rockeye, produced by Honeywell Incorporated in Minneapolis. The CBU-58 was used by Israel in Lebanon in both 1978 and 1982. The Israeli Defense company Israel Military Industries also manufactures the more up-to-date M-85 cluster bomb.Hezbollah fired Chinese-manufactured cluster munitions into Israel using 122-mm rocket launchers during the 2006 war, hitting Kiryat Motzkin, Nahariya, Karmiel, Maghar, and Safsufa. A total of 113 rockets and 4,407 submunitions were fired into Israel during the war. The rockets killed one person and injured twelve.The United Nations and human rights groups have accused Israel of dropping as many as 4 million cluster bomblets onto targets in Lebanon during the 2006 Lebanon war.”Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Dan Halutz plans to appoint a major general to investigate the use of cluster bombs — some of which were fired against his order — during the Lebanon war. Halutz ordered the IDF to use cluster bombs with extreme caution and not to fire them into populated areas. Nonetheless, it did so anyway, primarily using artillery batteries and the Multiple Launch System (MRLS). IDF artillery, MLRS and aircraft are thought to have delivered thousands of cluster bombs, containing a total of some 4 million bomblets during the war.”Human Rights Watch said there was evidence that Israel had used cluster bombs very close to civilian areas and described them as “unacceptably inaccurate and unreliable weapons when used around civilians” and that “they should never be used in populated areas.” Human Rights Watch has accused Israel of using cluster munitions in an attack on Bilda, a Lebanese village, on 19 July which killed 1 civilian and injured 12, including seven children. The Israeli “army defended … the use of cluster munitions in its offensive with Lebanon, saying that using such munitions was ‘legal under international law’ and the army employed them ‘in accordance with international standards.'” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mark Regev added, “[I]f NATO countries stock these weapons and have used them in recent conflicts — in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq — the world has no reason to point a finger at Israel.” FAizal…

|Siege, April 2004In response to the killing of the four US citizens, and intense political pressure, the US Marines commenced Operation Vigilant Resolve. They surrounded the city and attempted to capture the individuals responsible as well as others in the region who might have been involved in terrorist activities. One out of every two mosques in Fallujah were used to hide terrorists or weapons. The Iraqi National Guard was supposed to work alongside with the US Marines in the operation, but on the dawn of the invasion they discarded their uniforms and deserted. Under pressure from the Iraqi Governing Council, the US aborted its attempt to regain control of Fallujah. The US Marines suffered 40 deaths in the siege. Estimates of the number of Iraqi deaths (both terrorists and civilians) in the attack range from 271 (according to Iraqi Ministry of Health officials) to 731 (according to Rafie al-Issawi, the head of the local hospital).
The occupying force on April 9 allowed more than 70,000 women, children and elderly residents to leave the besieged city. On April 10, the US military declared a unilateral truce to allow for humanitarian supplies to enter Fallujah. US troops pulled back to the outskirts of the city. An Iraqi mediation team entered the city in an attempt to set up negotiations between US forces and local leaders, but as of April 12 had not been successful. Weapons were found hidden in some humanitarian supply trucks that were attempting to enter the city. At least one US battalion had orders to shoot any male of military age on the streets after dark, armed or not. Some press reports contained anecdotal accounts from Iraqi residents of US snipers allegedly firing on unarmed civilians. In violation of the Geneva Convention, the city’s main hospital was closed by Marines, negating its use, and a US sniper was placed on top of the hospital’s water tower.
There were also reports of the use of cluster bombs by US forces in Fallujah during this time, including reports from Al Jazeera on April 9 and 15, which US State Department spokesperson Richard Boucher later described as “totally false.” Similar reports came from several other sources, including Associated Press, who reported on 26 April 2004: “A spokesman for an Iraqi delegation from the violence-gripped city of Fallujah on Monday accused U.S. troops of using internationally banned cluster bombs against the city and said they had asked the United Nations to mediate the conflict. Mohammed Tareq, a spokesman for the governing council of Fallujah and a member of the four-person delegation, said U.S. military snipers were also responsible for the deaths of many children, women and elderly people.” And the Economic Press Review reported on 17 April 2004: “American F-16 warplanes are blitzing the Al-Julan residential area in Al Fallujah 50 kilometers west from Baghdad with cluster bombs.”
The ceasefire followed a wave of insurgency activity across southern Iraq, which included the capture of two US soldiers, seven employees of US military contractor Kellogg, Brown and Root, and more than 50 other workers in Iraq. Several of the prisoners were released within days of their capture, while the majority were executed.
The US forces ostensibly sought to negotiate a settlement but promised to restart its offensive to retake the city if one was not reached. Military commanders said their goal in the siege was to capture those responsible for the numerous deaths of US and Iraqi security personnel. As the siege continued, insurgents conducted hit-and-run attacks on US Marine positions. The Marines had announced a unilateral ceasefire.
UK now are sending Military personnels to Bin Ghazi and this will escalate the war making Libya another Iraq and will give US another opportunity to invade and occupy Libya.
Barak Obama is the biggest disappointment since he become President. The US economy is in big trouble, US dollar is losing against all major currencies, the big deficit and he is raising the military budget. Osama Bin Laden looks like winning the war by making US financially bankrupt.
This is interesting that US is providing support to Al Qaeda in Libya.

I am not fan of Gadaffi but if he lost the power than Libya will be in hands of fundamentalists like Iraq’s Shia government. Saddam Hussein was better than the currect Iraq Shia regime.
There are also reports that US is providing support to Syrians to over throw Bashar Assad.
Bahrain is another story where US is supporting the government because they believe that the uprising there will benefit Iran. US also don’t want to lose support of Saudis who does not want Shias uprising to succeed.
What will be the end result? More wars more occupation, more killings of civilians. The financial crisis will make US just like another third world country.
All this democracy and librarting countries are US propaganda which will destabilze Libya, Syria, Bahrain and Yemen.
The UN needs reforms by eleminating UN Security council dictatorship who has the power to veto any resolution which is against their interests. The world affairs must be decided by UN General Council vote where all the countries have the same previliges not the dictatorship of US, UK, France, China, Russia.
