Global Hypocrisy: France Arming Libyan Rebels


Brazenly violating a UN resolution it itself had help push through the Security Council, France has now admitted to arming Libya’s rebels with machine guns, anti-tank weapons, and RPGs. UNSC r.1973 supposedly allowed only for NATO forces to “protect” Libya’s civilian populations and specifically prohibited the supplying of weapons to either side.

Since the resolution’s passing on March 17, 2011, NATO has incrementally exceeded the parameters set by the already illegitimate resolution by first systematically destroying Libya’s military, then carrying out targeted assassinations, to then bombing civilian infrastructure, and now talking about a full-scale military invasion. Compounding the moral bankruptcy of the “international community,” is the fact that the brazen violation is not only being brushed aside, but is being used to question whether NATO should do more to “hasten the downfall” of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi.
