Chossudovsky: New deadly war theater opened in Libya
SHORT VIDEO CLIPS, 21 Mar 2011
So a multi-national force has carried out a series of attacks against targets around the Libyan city of Benghazi. French fighter jets destroyed several armoured vehicles and tanks belonging to Colonel Ghaddafi’s troops. It was joined by the U.S. military that struck against Libya’s air defences, using cruise missiles. UK forces are also in action over Libya. These are the first raids since the UN Security Council adopted a resolution allowing the use of “all the means necessary” to protect the civilian population in Libya. Earlier, troops loyal to Colonel Ghaddafi reportedly carried out attacks on Benghazi, which is the rebel stronghold, violating a ceasefire.
RT talks to Michel Chossudovsky, who’s director of the Centre for Research on Globalisation.
