Americans were to bomb Tbilisi in 2008 – Libyan authorities2011-03-30 13:15
One of the officials of Muhammar Kadafi's regime has accused western countries of using double standards.gt-en-newsitem-inside
A spokesman of Libyan authorities declared in an interview to Arguments and Facts that the operation of the international coalition shows again that "the West does not care about any appearances". In 2008, a small state started severe elimination of its rebels. A big country tried to protect them. This country was globally criticized, labeled and denounced for its "aggression". Don't you recognize these countries? I am talking of Russia and Georgia. But as soon as a similar situation developed in Libya, Americans immediately took the rebels' side. Why didn't they bomb Tbilisi, then?" - a source in Kadafi's government is asking.
"Everyone is lying. Kadafi is accused of killing 8000 people but no one presented even twenty corpses to the TV journalists, not to mention common graves. Not a single Libyan escaped to Europe because of Kadafi's barbarities, while thousands of people are fleeing from NATO's bombs", - he added.
Let us remind you that the forces of the international coalition continue bombing the objects being under control of the Libyan leader Muhammar Kadafi. This enabled the opponents of the ruling regime to take several large cities under control. The country's authorities report a large number of victims and state their readiness to resist the forces of the coalition to the end.
It should also be noted that earlier, South-Ossetian President's Spokesman for Post-Conflict Settlement Boris Chochiev paid attention to the fact that public criticism and especially military operations connected with the violation of human rights on the part of Europe and USA are held only when it is beneficial to the western countries' governments.
In this connection, he reminded that Georgia's actions in respect of the people of South Ossetia and Russian peacekeepers in August 2008 did not cause any negative reaction among the majority of the world community.
"Western countries criticized Russia's actions in August 2008, which was the only country that came to the rescue of both peacekeepers and South-Ossetians - a nation that was threatened with complete elimination. Besides, it came to the rescue of the people who were not only eliminated but had been, and still are, the citizens of RF", - Chochiev underlined.
"Had it not been for the double-standards policy, the West was not only to defend RF in August but was to punish the aggressors in the person of Saakashvili", - he added.
