S. African Deputy President Urges ICC To Charge NATO Commanders With War Crimes

The UN resolution on Libya was about protecting civilians. It excluded a foreign occupation force. (Protection of civilians)

So, Nato is ‘guilty’ of crimes, says Motlanthe

South Africa's Deputy President, Kgalema ­Motlanthe, has called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to charge the allied commanders for committing war crimes in Libya.

Motlanthe says prosecutors should charge Nato for bombing innocent civilians.

"If the ICC is to act on the basis of concrete information against those who would have been responsible for loss of life of civilians it will be difficult for Nato to justify why and how it came to (bomb Libya)," he said.

Motlanthe said despite Nato’s attempts to hide its role on the ground, the military assault on Tripoli showed that there were clear links and coordination plans by the military alliance.

The rebels were receiving ­support from Nato on the ground.

South Africa's President Jacob Zuma has blasted the Western nations for undermining the African Union in its mediation efforts in Libya.

Is it legal to make bets on the location and timing of terrorist attacks? If it is and you were wondering if you should call Ladbrokes and put your money on South Africa, you're probably too late. Doubtless the bookies will have shortened to the odds to half of nothing now. Never mind.

hi nobody,

You may recall the Economist, aka the Rothschild rag, propagandizing for betting markets on terrorism. In particular, the DARPA Futures Markets Applied to Prediction (FutureMAP), part of the TIA (Terrorist Information Awareness) Program of John Poindexter.

This is essentially a legalized assassination exchange that allows the plutocrats to use their greatest resource to effect change. That is, money.

The neoliberals of course see this as an excellent way to let "the market" magically solve their problems, as is their wont.

So if you wanted Yassir Arafat to disappear, you would just throw money at the problem on an open exchange and hey presto!

The downside for the neoliberals, of course, is that this could equally be turned into a democratized open source project. Imagine a website where the populations of New York, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya can place bets against Zbig Brzezinski, James Schlesinger, Hank Greenberg or David Rockefeller surviving the year.

And even better, the neoliberal monsters will have given the idea moral legitimacy.

So they could hardly object.

Adam Smith would be all choked up with pride.
