Bureaucrats at the United Nations want “rich” countries to tax their citizens to pay for an exploding refugee problem, the Financial Times reports today.
António Guterres, head of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, cited Libya’s one plus million refugees as an example of the problem.

In March, the Security Council passed resolution 1973 authorizing “all necessary measures” to protect civilians in Libya, reportedly victims of Gaddafi’s nominal brutality. The resolution formed the legal basis for military intervention and bombing of civilians now underway in the country.
Around the same time, Obama signed an unconstitutional “presidential finding” that ordered the CIA to “work clandestinely with the rebel forces,” according to The Australian.
Stratford Global Intelligence confirmed that one hundred Egyptian commandos have been in control of opposition forces since early March, author and activist Ralph Schoenman noted in late March. The British SAS, U.S. Special Forces and CIA operatives have been there for months according to Stratford.
NATO admitted for the first time today that its air raids kill innocent civilains. On Sunday, an airstrike on a civilian home in Tripoli killed nine and injured many more.

Italy’s interior minister, Roberto Maroni, said on June 15 that NATO’s bombing campaign is responsible for Libya’s refugee problem. Foreign Minister Franco Frattini dismissed Maroni’s concerns. Premier Silvio Berlusconi supports the bombing raids.
In addition to the growing refugee problem, NATO and the United States are responsible for atrocities perpetuated by the so-called rebels. Randon executions and rape are now common in rebel-held areas. Racism against black African migrants is rampant. CNN and the corporate media are ignoring the atrocities.
“So long as NATO governments provide the funding, assault rifles, military training, ground advisers, support vehicles and air power, they are fully responsible for the actions of their soldiers in the war zone,” writes Susan Lindauer. “Libya’s rebels are not a rag tag fighting force, either. Thanks to NATO’s largesse, financed by U.S. and British taxpayers, they’re fully decked out in military uniforms, parading through the streets with military vehicles for all the people to see.”
As noted by author and researcher Webster Tarpley, the Libyan rebel movement was cobbled together and armed by the United States.
“Today, it is clear that the United States is providing modern weapons for the Libyan rebels through Saudi Arabia and across the Egyptian border with the active assistance of the Egyptian army and of the newly installed pro-US Egyptian military junta” in violation of resolution 1973, Tarpley wrote on March 24.
Research by Tarpley also reveals that many of the so-called rebels are al-Qaeda jihadists that had previously gone up against the United States in Iraq. Tarpley cites a December 2007 West Point study examining the background of foreign guerrilla fighters.
The corporate media has ignored the fact that the rebel commander Khalifa Haftar is a long-time CIA collaborator. According to the Jamestown Foundation, Haftar founded the Libyan National Army in 1988 with the assistance of the CIA.
The globalists decided to use the Saddam-Noriega model to overthrow Gaddafi due to his opposition to the World Trade Organization, the IMF, the World Bank, and the rest of the bankster Mafia operation. Gaddafi made the mistake of talking about oil nationalization despite the fact he agreed to privatize and turn over to Mobil, Exxon, Total, Repsol, and ENI much of the country’s oil. Gaddafi’s collaboration with the neocons and the Washington political establishment did not prevent the destruction of his country.
The Libyan refugee problem was created by the United Nations, the CIA, British SAS, NATO and U.S. Special Forces. It is a sensationalistic component of the war against Gaddafi and sends a message to all “rogue nations” that oppose the bankster cartel and its array of transnational corporations.
Actor (and CFR member) Angelina Jolie gives a high profile to the UN propaganda effort.
It is ironic, if not predictable, that the United Nations is now calling for “rich nations” – nations that have citizens with wealth to steal – to throw money at a refugee problem it deliberately engineered as part of the propaganda effort against the latest enemy in the Muslim world.
NATO has admitted that civilians were killed in an air strike on a Tripoli suburb on Sunday. Gaddafi officials say two babies were among the nine dead.

NATO has admitted that civilians were killed in an air strike on a Tripoli suburb on Sunday. Gaddafi officials say two babies were among the nine dead. It’s the first time the Alliance has conceded responsibility for civilian deaths, although Libya’s Health Ministry claims more than 800 people have died in three months of air attacks. Maria Finoshina reports now from the capital Tripoli. You may find some of the images disturbing.
