Failed revolution, failed state: Libya's torment continues

Four years after the fall of Muammar Ghadaffi the only growth in Libya has been in refugees and smugglers looking to fill their boats bound for Europe. No one group has the strength to impose its authority, restore the rule of law, and control the country�s borders. It is a state of chaos in which the unscrupulous can, and do, thrive.

$850,000.00 were spent celebrating Canada's participation in this.

Subject: Canada - War Crime: NATO Deliberately Destroyed Libya's Water Infrastructure

  • Read about the huge lies told to Canadians re our participation in the war against Libya.
  • Every single Canadian political leader except for Elizabeth May supported Canada's participation in the war against Libya.
  • Did Canadian bombs drop on Libya's water infrastructure ???
 War Crime: NATO Deliberately Destroyed Libya's Water Infrastructure.  A clear crime against  humanity.

It was in fact NATO which debilitated Libya's water supply by targeting critical state-owned water installations, including a water-pipe factory in Brega.�

The deliberate destruction of a nation's water infrastructure, with the knowledge that doing so would result in massive deaths of the population as a direct consequence, is not simply a war crime, but potentially a genocidal strategy.

It raises serious questions about the conventional mythology of a clean, humanitarian war in Libya - questions that mainstream journalists appear to be uninterested in, or unable to ask.

Subject: As Robson thinks Harper lied to Parliament, he may vote for another centre-right party

The Editor
The Toronto Star

Copy to: The Hon. Sinclair Stevens, Leader of the Progressive Canadian Party: After a decade of Harper's autocratic rule, time has come for change and you are right to run candidates to siphon off moderate Conservative votes to defeat Harper.

                Prof. John Robson, Department of History, University of Ottawa.

 As Robson thinks Harper lied to Parliament, he may vote for another centre-right party

Re "Vote for principle, not partisanship," by John Robson (Aug. 21).

In another column: "Why I can't vote for the Harper Tories," (August 7), John Robson wrote: "I wrote nearly two years ago that Harper is unfit for office because he lied to Parliament over the Duffy-Wright affair, insolently telling incompatable tales five days apart in October 2013, and lying about having contradicted himself." Now, he might have a new centre-right party to vote for.

As reported by Vancouver-based The Tyee News (, a centre-right political party says it has had enough of Stephen Harper and will run candidates in ridings where Conservatives barely won in 2011, in the hope of siphoning off enough votes to allow for a Liberal or NDP win. The Progressive Canadian party was formed in 2004 by former Progressive Conservative party members who were upset at their pary's merger with the Canadian Alliance. The leader of the party is Sinclair Stevens, a former PC minister under Brian Mulroney.

Stevens said the plan is to offer conservatives who are unhappy with Harper's performance another right-of-centre option, with the aim of siphoning off Conservative party votes. "Our feeling is that if we have a credible candidate, they may take enough votes so that Conservatives won't make it."

This offers Mr. Robson with an alternative to Harper's Conservatives to vote for.  (Full disclosure: I am a member of now-defunct Progressive Conservative party of Canada).
