Nato meddling in Syria would be a war crime

Published 29/04/2014

PLEASE, no "humanitarian intervention" in Syria by Nato. Are people aware that the Libyan city of Sirte was destroyed by Nato bombing and Gaddafi's compound was targeted in the Nato bombing which killed his youngest son and three of his grandchildren?

Whatever one's views on Gaddafi, the civilians killed in the bombing of Sirte and Gaddafi's son and three grandchildren didn't deserve to die.

In fact, these are war crimes. Unfortunately, they are unlikely ever to be seen in this way by the prevailing power structures.

The reality of war is largely kept from us, as the real truth would revolt us and impel us towards demanding peaceful, progressive change in society.
