On 4 May 1970, at Ohio's Kent State University, US forces murdered 4 students. The students had been protesting about US forces carrying out the mass murder of civilians in Cambodia.

Reportedly, General Petraeus has said that the Afghans may have been burning their own children.

The USA, like Israel, commits mass murder and then, like Israel, blames the victims.

Gen. David H. Petraeus: Afghans burned their own children.

Around 16 February 2011, in Konar province in Afghanistan, the US military killed 22 women and more than 30 children.

According to the Washington Post, on 21 February 2011,

"To the shock of President Hamid Karzai's aides, Gen. David H. Petraeus suggested ... that Afghans caught up in a coalition attack in northeastern Afghanistan might have burned their own children to exaggerate claims of civilian casualties, according to two participants at the meeting."

Murdered by US troops at Mai Lai

Reportedly, "Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, dismissed allegations by Karzai's office and the provincial governor that civilians were killed and said residents had invented stories, or even injured their children, to pin the blame on U.S. forces..."

"On Saturday, Wahidi, the provincial governor, sent a three-person fact-finding team up the valley to the village of Helgal.

"They returned with ... five boys and girls 16 or younger.

"... they had burns and shrapnel wounds..."

So gaddafi is a supporter of terrorism..what an awful awful man!

'While Gaddafi himself has managed to soften his image abroad by giving up support for terrorist groups including the IRA, he remains a hate figure for many domestically'

the 'terrorist' group named is the IRA....umm..isnt that the same group whose country Ireland has been centuries under foreign domination? The dominators...well they are good virtous brits...who managed to contribute to the the irish famine...

'It seems to me that when one country invades and conquers another country, it should advance the culture and help the people. For example, compare Rome and England. Rome conquered England and brought better technology, roads, and building techniques to England. Now look at England and Ireland. England abolished Catholicism, the Irish gentry, the Irish language, and the Irish culture. They kept the Irish in total poverty and tried to convert them to the Protestant religion. Then, when the potato blight happened, and hundreds of thousands of people began to starve, England acted like they had no hold on Ireland at all. They started off with good intentions, but their self-interest got in the way of Ireland's best interest. Lecky, another Irish authority, states, "It would be difficult in the whole range of history, to find another instance in which various and powerful agencies agreed to degrade the character, and blast the prosperity of a nation" (MacManus 492). England just wanted the economical resources that Ireland could provide.'

so is the IRA a real terrorist group? Or a resistance group?
when Isrel invaded Lebanon and began to terrorise the lebanese did so in order to get them to abandon Hezbollah...that by defn is terrorism...yet it has the support of the US!

so is Gadaffi a supporter of terrorists? real terrorists?

You might also spare a mention for Ian Tomlinson who was killed by police during protests in the united kingdom a few years ago. Many more suffered injuries. The kind of protests we saw in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya would never have been tolerated in the uk. They would never have been allowed to swell to those levels. Just look at the media response to last year's student riots. Britain celebrates democracy anywhere but home. Always has. What further evidence do you need to realise that political ideals lend little momentum to change - only economic ones. Capitalism is the seventh wave. Or the third option.

well thats right, anon...the protests we see thered have called for a state of emergency and martial law!
But since its Libya...well suddenly the govts of the 'free world' have forgotten their own laws...

I nearly spit my tea, when reading the calls to respect protests and protestors from the resident hypocrites in the western world.

Another commenter mentioned Ian Tomlinson.

Who the cops killed.

But all of the protestors, for years now, who have been caged in "free speech" zones.

Thinking of the G20 in Canada, massive roundups, after the goons went through and caused mayhem...while the cops stood down.
But after that the roundups in one day of more then 1000 protestors, caged in a warehouse..

And no one who is shouting now, Hilary, Obama, PM Harper in Canada, said a word.

It just makes me ill..

I think the UK has been enjoying a soft martial law and state of emergency for the best part of 10 years as far as protests and activism is concerned - the death of Ian Tomlinson was testament to all that - but it was only ever the very tip of the iceberg - if the draconian (and counter-productive) approach to the detention of terrorist suspects was anything to go by (anyone who disagreed with foreign policy on the middle east, pretty much)

I love the semantic foreplay in the media: when were the IRA ever described as an insurgency or freedom fighters? Were those involved in the Easter Uprising ever depicted as beleagured, oppressed martyrs?

And yet we negotiated with them and they gained ground with the Good Friday Agreement (some, but not much).

We don't negotiate with terrorists - so just who the hell were we negotiating with? Hamas enjoy a similar duality now. They're portrayed as both depending on which direction the wind is blowing.

Britain's democracy is fucked up. Its moral compass is stuck in the eye of some magnetic storm or other. In some weird postmodern nightmare.
