Note: A follow-up article will continue the narrative below. Currently, events in Tripoli are fluid.
Progressive Radio News Hour contributor Mahdi Nazemroaya’s overnight email said:
“NATO landed insurgents in (Tripoli) harbor. They are attacking my hotel. I almost got shot. They’re still lying a lot (about claims of controlling the capital), but we are in real danger.”
He’s saying that armed guerrilla gangs, mercenaries, indistinguishable from (also armed) Tripoli residents, are waging street warfare.
Russia Today reported about 1,300 deaths. No one knows for sure. However, events are fast-moving and chaotic.
On Russia Today, Nazemroaya also said heavy looting occurred, including insurgents breaking into hotel rooms and ransacking them. In addition, he said NATO WANTS A BLOODBATH.
In fact, they’re getting one, exacerbated by intense terror bombing, deliberately targeting civilians.
“Myself, the Press TV journalist (Lizzie Phelan), three French nationals, the Cuban and Telesur journalists are in danger.”
“One of my French colleagues was told: ‘You are going to suffer the consequences of your actions for opposing the NATO war.”
Sunday, on Russia Today, Nazemroaya said he was told that CNN said he personally would pay for opposing the war.
REPEAT: CNN THREATENED MADHI NAZEMROAYA FOR REPORTING TRUTHFULLY ABOUT EVENTS ON THE GROUND, NOT THE PRO-NATO PROPAGANDA CNN (THE NEW YORK TIMES, AND OTHER MAJOR MEDIA) REPORT DAILY.
What’s ongoing in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Palestine, as well as throughout North Africa/the Middle East/Central Asia is part of a COUP D’ETAT AGAINST FREEDOM – PLANNED, ORCHESTRATED AND DIRECTED FROM WASHINGTON.
