What would be interesting about Qaddafi going to the war crimes court in The Hague, if he ever gets there (!!??) is that the world may hear startling revelations about backstage of politics world and his closeness friendship with Western countries.
These relations became particularly close in 2004 as the US and UK were looking for support for the war in Iraq. Back then, the old Colonel Qaddafi signed many deals, including refusal to continue development of chemical weapons and readiness to supply oil to EU countries… unforgettable memories with the triad B / triplets Bush – Blair – Berlusconi ! ;))
Until then, the United Nations General Assembly just decided unanimously to suspend Libya’s membership on the
Human Rights Council, a move that puts additional international pressure on Muammar al-Qaddafi. The decision was made by consensus of all members states of the U.N., with the exception of Libya, because it was the subject of the General Assembly meeting. Of course, I cannot to hide my amusement about consensus of UN ! Why ? Because: “An imperialist country is unilaterally and visibly deploying its military and nuclear machinery in order to carry out an armed attack against Libya…Venezuela calls for the rejection of war-mongering mobilization of the U.S. Air force and Navy” said Venezuelan Ambassador Jorge Valero. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice angrily denounced the comments. “It’s shameful that one member state, whose own reprehensible record speaks for itself, would manipulate this occasion to spread lies, foster fear, and sow hate” she said. I think it is a really constructive discussion :))))
I can point out that Europeans – except American’s UK friends – have half-heartedly opposed the NATO intervention in Libya … UN mandate, interference in internal affairs of another country, violation of international law, etc. I heard Russia speaking loudly, as usual, China still in expectation….. Deja vu !
Something new ?? Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh says US and Israel behind unrest of Middle East. “I am going to reveal a secret,” he said. “There is an operations room in Tel Aviv with the aim of destabilizing the Arab world. The operations room is in Tel Aviv and run by the White House”. Notice that Saleh has been a weak but important U.S. ally in the fight against al-Qaida, accepting tens of millions of dollars in U.S. military and other aid and allowing American drone strikes on al-Qaida targets.
Well, probably no one doubts that eventually as U.S. says it will do, while useless and bureaucratic UN will revolve around the tail …. again Deja vu !
Update: According UN News Center, The International Criminal Court (ICC) will investigate Libyan President Muammar Al-Qadhafi’s regime for crimes against humanity in repressing peaceful protesters, as a top United Nations official today called for global action to avert a humanitarian disaster inside the country. ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said today preliminary examination of available information shows that an investigation is warranted after the Security Council last week asked him to look into the violent repression in which more than 1,000 people are reported to have been killed and many more injured as Mr. Qadhafi’s loyalists opened fire on peaceful civilians demanding his ouster. So, as I said, if they manage to bring Qaddafi in front of the Court in The Hague, the fun will be fully insured… Pop Corn and Coca Cola (for those who still drink it 😀 )….
