Heavenly Signs: New Moon in Scorpio and November 2012

Heavenly Signs: New Moon in Scorpio and November 2012

Earlier today, the new Moon passed in front of the sun, slightly off-center, producing a partial solar eclipse and a fantastic crescent sunrise. By Dennis Put in Maasvlakte, The Netherlands

By Hwaa Irfan

This is one month that keeps presenting itself in various forms. Looking closer it is yet another step towards a difficult transition, as sparks fly between those in want of change and those who want more of the same.

Those who want more of the same, especially those within global governance have been warned and know that times are changing beyond their control. The memories that light the corner of their eyes, are increasingly the suppressed/falling tears of those who want real change, who can’t take it anymore, who know that we were not mean to live like this entrapped in their illusions.

A New Moon is expected to occur in the constellation of Scorpio on 13 November, with the New Moon welcoming the month of Muharram, the beginning of the new Hijriyy Year (Islamic year)maybe on 15 November 2012.

The New Moon expresses itself in human terms as spontaneity, instinctively, and pertains to society/social. The constellation it is in reflects the emotional concerns, and karmic patterns that are now coming to the surface. The emotional waters are emphasized with New Moon on Scorpio because Scorpio is a water element. It charges the New Moon with intuitive energy, courage, and resourcefulness. But if we are in the negative mode, what will be charged is deceit, possessiveness, resentment, and hence vindictiveness.  But on the Scorpio is about death to what we hold onto to give birth to a higher order of things – the theme of 2012, our Awakening!

Who wants to Awaken to that which they have no comprehension of? Is it really better the devil you know!

Those who recognize the futility of what has been, who have been exhausted of self worth by what has been, have suffered immeasurably by what has been, have realized that the illusive cloth of happiness has been but for a few, and not for the many, and have chosen to live outside of this illusion!

The New Moon in Scorpio provides the opportunity to die to old stagnant ways, and to be reborn anew with the intuitive courage of the New Moon, and the death of the ego form Scorpio, and transformation. What is good does not come easy, as November will be intense with the closeness of friction between opposites on a personal, societal and global level. We have been asked to face our own miscreations throughout 2012, and this November, that confrontation is no less in order to for a thorough cleansing of the souls to take place with no more room for denial. To help face this inner journey, Mercury will go retrograde from November 6 – 26th making important decisions, new beginnings, and transactions difficult around the time of the U.S. presidential elections.

The importance of the period is emphasized by a total eclipse of the Sun which is expected to start at 19:38 UT November 13 in Indonesia,  and is expected to end at 00:46 UT November 14 in South America, but comes into alignment over Hawaii’s Maui Island.

Visible over parts of Africa Australia, Pacific, Middle East, New Zealand, South America and Antarctica eclipses in general represent change – once again the 2012 influence is emphasized.  With the Sun in Scorpio death of that which is no longer sustainable is emphasized once again including emotional patterns that we keep repeating lifting the veil of forgetfulness to remembering who one really is. The way forward will only be blocked by rejecting our true selves. With acceptance, it becomes easier to reject what is wrong in our lives, and to build a new foundation of integrity – It’s a time for clearing out unneeded baggage.

In other words, November will be an important turning point, a transitory period that will sift the chaff from the wheat. For those who remain addicted to the matrix, this will be a very difficult time indeed. There will be much confusion for a society that has been nurtured much on spoon-fed information,. Part of that confusion arises from what we always thought would be, will crumble before our eyes, along with the illusions we have about ourselves.

For those who trust the changes to come, the confusion will be less, but much depends on how much we have learnt to transform our own miscreations, which in itself can be a disorienting experience. As many children have been born into these times with the built in capacity to stay at a distance from those who do not see them (that is accept them as they are), it is a valuable skill to have in these times when it comes to finding real support.

As such, emotions will run high, both personally, and socially, and just as global governance has been preparing for social unrest, and have been phasing in martial laws under our noses, we should try to prepare for our needs where possible as we approach November 23, when Mars moves into Capricorn and squares with Uranus which in turn goes retrograde in Aries, a period that the Qur’an warns us when we should stay in our homes.

November 22 the Sun, our individuality passes into Sagittarius  where if we have submitted positively to the previous influences, our eyes will be open, minds clearer with a new release of energy and awareness ready for some expansion one step, at a time!

Another eclipse, a partial lunar eclipse with the Full Moon in Gemini takes place in November 28 with more sudden surprises with a kick to the rear end of limited attitudes, allowing for a release of deep seated fears and anxieties, For many of us, that will take the form of a shock to our comfort zones to form a crack in the barrenness of rigidly held beliefs with Venus (values and unconditional love), Saturn (personal and societal structures) and Mercury (mind and communication) all present in Scorpio.

As everyone will be affected (positively/negatively depending on where they are at, be kind!

Slipshod security at the state Department of Revenue leads to a massive security breach: 3.6 million Social Security numbers are stolen. The state’s population is approximately 4.7 million. If you live in South Carolina, there’s a very good chance that slipshod state government security has allowed an overseas computer criminal to acquire your Social Security number.

The South Carolina Department of Revenue acknowledged the massive electronic security breach today, saying an electronic intrusion led to 3.6 million Social Security numbers being stolen. The state’s population is approximately 4.7 million.

Anyone who has filed a South Carolina tax return since 1998 — including former residents who have since moved out of the state — is being urged to call (866) 578-5422 to enroll in a consumer protection service and visit protectmyid.com/scdor. – CNET

A magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck off the west coast of Canada, but there were no reports of major damage. Residents in parts of British Columbia were evacuated, but the province appeared to escape the biggest quake in Canada since 1949 largely unscathed.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the powerful temblor hit the Queen Charlotte Islands just after 8 p.m. local time Saturday at a depth of about 3 miles (5 kilometers) and was centered 96 miles (155 kilometers) south of Masset, British Columbia. It was felt across a wide area in British Columbia, both on its Pacific islands and on the mainland. WFAA.com

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is continuing to monitor impacts from Hurricane Sandy on nuclear power plants in the Northeastern United States, including an Alert declared at the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant in New Jersey. The plant, currently in a regularly scheduled outage, declared the Alert at approximately 8:45 p.m. EDT due to water exceeding certain high water level criteria in the plant’s water intake structure.

An Alert is the second lowest of four NRC action levels. The Alert was preceded by an Unusual Event, declared at approximately 7 p.m. EDT when the water level first reached a minimum high water level criteria. Water level is rising in the intake structure due to a combination of a rising tide, wind direction and storm surge. It is anticipated water levels will begin to abate within the next several hours. – Business Insider

Hurricane Sandy battered the mid-Atlantic region on Monday, its powerful gusts and storm surges causing once-in-a-generation flooding in coastal communities, knocking down trees and power lines and leaving more than five million people — including a large swath of Manhattan — in the rain-soaked dark. At least seven deaths in the New York region were tied to the storm.

… storm made landfall near Atlantic City around 8 p.m., with maximum sustained winds of about 80 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said. That was shortly after the center had reclassified the storm as a post-tropical cyclone, a scientific renaming that had no bearing on the powerful winds, driving rains and life-threatening storm surge expected to accompany its push onto land.

The storm had unexpectedly picked up speed as it roared over the Atlantic Ocean on a slate-gray day and went on to paralyze life for millions of people in more than a half-dozen states, with extensive evacuations that turned shorefront neighborhoods into ghost towns. Even the superintendent of the Statue of Liberty left to ride out the storm at his mother’s house in New Jersey; he said the statue itself was “high and dry,” but his house in the shadow of the torch was not.

The wind-driven rain lashed sea walls and protective barriers in places like Atlantic City, where the Boardwalk was damaged as water forced its way inland. Foam was spitting, and the sand gave in to the waves along the beach at Sandy Hook, N.J., at the entrance to New York Harbor. Water was thigh-high on the streets in Sea Bright, N.J., a three-mile sand-sliver of a town where the ocean joined the Shrewsbury River.

… In New York, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s office said late Monday night that at least five deaths in the state were attributable to the storm. At least three of those involved falling trees…

In Morris County, N.J., a man and a woman were killed when a tree fell on their car Monday evening, The Associated Press reported.

In Manhattan, NYU Langone Medical Center’s backup power system failed Monday evening, forcing the evacuation of patients to other facilities.

In a Queens beach community, nearly 200 firefighters were battling a huge blaze early on Tuesday morning that tore through more than 50 tightly-packed homes in an area where heavy flooding slowed responders.

Earlier, a construction crane atop one of the tallest buildings in the city came loose and dangled 80 stories over West 57th Street, across the street from Carnegie Hall.

Soon power was going out and water was rushing in. Waves topped the sea wall in the financial district in Manhattan, sending cars floating downstream. West Street, along the western edge of Lower Manhattan, looked like a river. The Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, known officially as the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel in memory of a former governor, flooded “from end to end,” the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said, hours after Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York ordered it closed to traffic. Officials said water also seeped into seven subway tunnels under the East River. – New York Times.

… Sandy slammed into the East Coast Monday, killing at least 16 people, hurling a record-breaking 13-foot surge of seawater at New York City and knocking out power to more than 7.5 million across the East Coast.

The massive storm was downgraded from a hurricane after it barged ashore in southern New Jersey around 8:00 p.m., bringing more than 85-mph winds and a roiling wall of seawater as it moved through New York City.

The 16 deaths were reported in New Jersey, New York, Maryland, North Carolina, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Some of the victims were killed by falling trees. At least one death was blamed on the storm in Canada.

President Obama declared a major disaster in New York, Long Island, and New Jersey early Tuesday, making federal funding available to people in the area.

New York was among the hardest hit, with its financial heart closest for a second day and seawater cascading into the still-gaping construction pit at the World Trade Center.

Water lapped over the seawall in Lower Manhattan , flooding rail yards, subway tracks, tunnels and roads. Rescue workers floated bright orange rafts down flooded downtown streets, while police officers rolled slowly down the street with loudspeakers telling people to go home.

New Jersey was also hit hard, with many residents of Atlantic City and other barrier island communities stranded by high floodwaters as of Monday night.

Most of Atlantic City was covered with water, as the storm brought together the bay and ocean in nearby Longport and flooded all three roads into and out of Ocean City. Flooding also was reported at PATH train stations in Hoboken and Jersey City. – Fox News

Criminals who are taking advantage of the devastation of Hurricane Sandy are posting photographs of stolen goods on Twitter and bragging about how they plan to carry out more thefts and violence.

Shocking images posted to the social networking website depict individuals who appear to be working together boasting about how they have stolen laptops, TV’s, and other electronics from both stores and private homes that fell victim to the hurricane.

Not only are these low life thugs proudly displaying their stolen goods, they are planning on violence. – Realnewsreporter

Nov 1

nonstop coverage of this “perfect storm” has also conveniently diverted attention away from several perfect political storms in the White House, including the infamous Benghazi scandal and the “Fast and Furious” gun-smuggling operation, both of which just so happen to have the potential, albeit the very small potential, to have key Obama administration players charged with war crimes. ust as some of the sordid details were finally starting to come to light about the Obama administration’s treasonous actions following the September 11, 2012 attack in Libya that resulted in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, U.S. State Department communications specialist and former U.S. Air Force veteran Sean Smith, as well as two U.S. Marines, along comes Hurricane Sandy to redirect focus and paint the administration in a new light just before election day.

The same goes for the “Fast and Furious” scandal, which was given the back burner as the storm of the century came burrowing in off the East Coast, causing untold damage to homes, businesses, and infrastructure. Some reports indicate that it could take weeks or even months for many of the hardest hit areas to fully recover, while millions of people living throughout the region are still without power. What will happen in the meantime with the Obama administration and its role in smuggling firearms to Mexican drug cartels? Natural News

The Truth Behind Benghazi Massacre*

The Truth Behind Benghazi Massacre

By Stephen Lendman

Washington bears full responsibility for waging multiple wars on humanity. It planned, initiated and controls direct and proxy conflicts across North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.

Bani Walid made headlines for three weeks. Genocide threatens its residents. Obama’s dirty hands are all over this crime of war and against humanity. Media scoundrels ignore it.

America’s proxy war on Syria continues. Washington’s directly responsible for recruiting, arming, funding and directing Syrian death squads.

On October 24, Voice of Russia reported that Russian Armed Forces chief General Nikolai Makarov said:

“The General Staff has information that the militants, who are fighting against Syrian government troops, are armed with the portable air defence systems of various countries, including the Stinger of U.S. production.”

Disclaimers notwithstanding, Washington is directly responsible for supplying them. Makarov added:

“The US denies this fact. They say that they did not deliver anything to them (Syrian militants). However, we have reliable information that Syrian militants are armed with foreign portable air defence systems, including U.S. air defence systems.”

They didn’t arrive out of thin air. Voice of Russia said an “informed Syrian source” said “the US had made a decision to hand over a consignment of MANPADS to (anti-Assad) militants that are fighting against Damascus.”

Man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) are shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles (SAMs).

On October 24, Russia Today (rt.com) headlined “US blocks Russia’s draft statement in UN on peaceful resolution of Bani Walid violence,” saying:

Russia’s UN envoy, Vitaly Churkin, said the move “can’t be serious. Blocking a draft statement that called (for) solv(ing) the country’s political problems without violence is very strange.”

Not at all when Washington plans genocide to assert control. Churkin knows it but used diplomatic language. Russia’s statement called for “tak(ing) urgent steps to resolve the conflict by peaceful means and to preserve the rights of all Libyan citizens.”

On October 23, Russia Today (rt.com) headlined “Bani Walid civilians bombed with gas,” saying:

A Libyan national with family in Bani Walid told RT that pro-government militias “intercept food, fuel and medicine and use grad rockets and (poison) gas weapons against Bani Walid” residents.

Daily shelling threatens the city with genocide. It’s been ongoing throughout most of October. Bani Walid is surrounded and besieged. Many deaths and injuries occurred. One source claimed 600 killed in one day. Another 1,000 were hospitalized.

Fighting rages across the city. Civilian neighborhoods are targeted. Conditions are grave. Everything is in short supply. The hospital was attacked. It “cannot house all the injured, and power only appears for a couple of hours a day.”

A resident told RT that “militias want to eliminate us.” He remained anonymous for his safety. In an extended interview, he said:

“I have got a call from my family. They tell me the situation in Bani Walid is horrible. There is an awful attack with all kind of shooting and bombing everywhere in the city. The civilian buildings are falling down.”

“The situation in Bani Walid hospital is really bad. We don’t have a lot of medicine. We don’t have enough places for wounded civilians. Right now the hospital is keeping wounded people outside.”

“No family would leave Bani Walid. All the people in Bani Walid say the same words: ‘We’ll never go from our land.’ ”

“There are no Gaddafi people (in the city). Even a member of Libya’s National Transitional Council, after visiting Bani Walid, also said there were no Gaddafi people there.”

“What is happening there is a battle between (Bani Walid’s people) and Misrata (militias), which wants to eliminate Bani Walid from existence. They want to do to Bani Walid what they did in Tahoura.”

“There is almost no electricity. It only comes for two-three hours a day. It is three weeks that no food has been able reach Bani Walid as militias that surround the town are blocking the roads. They intercept food, fuel and medicine. There is no food inside Bani Walid, not even milk for kids, no necessities.”

“Two hundred of those militias died yesterday, and the bodies are still there. They even left their wounded people there and Bani Walid hospital is taking care of those wounded people.”

“Militias went inside the city, but they only went a few kilometers before getting kicked out. They used machine guns inside, and from outside they used grad rockets and gas weapons.”

“Actually we found gas masks and the hospital’s reports very clearly say that civilians in Bani Walid have been bombed with (poison) gas.”

“Moreover, when we took over the positions the militias of Misrata had been taking before being kicked out, the people of Bani Walid found there gas masks.”

“There are photos and videos of this. It’s the proof against those militias that they are using (toxic) gas against civilians. Why would you be using a gas mask if you go inside Bani Walid using only machine guns and normal rockets?”

“What Bani Walid is doing is self defense. When Bani Walid first fell during the days of the fight for Gaddafi, (militias) took away everything there was in the city: cars, money, gold….Then the people of the town said ‘It’s a fight for freedom, we have to go out,’ so they went out and their houses were robbed and destroyed. No one cared.”

“Right now the civilians in Bani Walid who are holding guns and fighting, they are fighting for their land which should not be taken from them. They just cannot go away.”

RT added that earlier reports said hospital patients “suffered from symptoms typical of gas intoxication.”

Healthy residents with no history of heart and lung diseases had difficulty breathing. They experienced increased heart rates, and suffered from muscle spasms. They also have blurred vision and intermittently fall unconscious.

Dr. Almahdi Azyadi told Russian Today:

“They’re really bombing. Many are reported to the hospitals because of the gas attacks, and it’s happening almost every day. The gas is toxic, and there are some injuries.”

Chemical weapons use is illegal. Washington and key NATO allies use them regularly. The 1907 Hague Convention banned them. WW I use of poison gas caused 100,000 deaths and about 900,000 injuries.

In the 1920s, Britain used poison gas against Iraqis. As Secretary of State for War, Winston Churchill advocated their use. In a secret memo he said, “I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes.”

In 1928, the Geneva Protocol prohibited gas and bacteriological warfare.

America uses chemical, biological, and other banned weapons in all its direct and proxy wars. No-holds barred state terror is policy. Body counts don’t matter. Media scoundrels maintain silence. Genocide goes on openly. They ignore it.

In 1989, 149 nations at the Paris Chemical Weapons Conference condemned use of these weapons. After committing itself to non-use, Washington continued development, production, and covert use. Biological and depleted uranium weapons are also used.

In 1997, America ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). It prohibits development, production, stockpiling, and use of these weapons. It also mandates their destruction.

Washington uses them freely. Huge chemical, biological and nuclear weapons stockpiles are maintained. New more dangerous weapons replace older ones.

CWC mandates non-complying nations be referred to the Security Council for action against them. America’s veto power precludes efforts to deter its lawlessness.

Currently, 188 State Parties are CWC signatories. They include Russia and China. Israel signed it in 1993, but hasn’t ratified it.

Chemical weapons include all toxic ones and their precursors able to cause death, injury, temporary incapacitation or sensory irritation. Munitions and other delivery devices are included.

Toxic substances are categorized as choking, blister, blood or nerve agents. Best known ones include choking chlorine and phosgene, mustard and lewisite blister agents (or vesicants), hydrogen cyanide blood agents, and sarin, soman and VX nerve agents.

Toxic chemicals used industrially are legal, despite their harmful effects. However, when used as weapons, they violate CWC provisions.

CWC’s purpose is to ensure toxic chemicals are produced only for purposes unrelated to weaponry in any form.

On October 24, RT headlined “Siege of Bani Walid, Day 20: ‘Militia committing genocide’ – RT source,” saying:

For three weeks, civilians have been killed “by toxic gas and heavy tank fire….(N)o resolution to the conflict (is) in sight.” Indiscriminate shelling continues.

Footage RT believes is reliable shows dead bodies, “women and children with missing limbs and disfigured faces.” A Libyan national in Egypt with relatives in Bani Walid told RT militias “are committing genocide.”

The city is surrounded and besieged. Essential supplies are blocked. People are starving. Medicines aren’t available to treat patients. Power is mostly off.

Militias “attack the city and are using heavy machinery to demolish houses. They are using internationally banned toxic gases against civilian people, and they bombard the population with tanks.”

They’re ordered “to kill all protesters. The city is blocked from all sides. There is no medicine, food, (or) humanitarian aid. There is nothing inside the city.”

“There is bloodshed in Bani Walid and nobody can hear the people inside the city” cry for help. Militia “guns come from the outside including from” France and Washington.

Major media reports are “lies and forgery. We plead for the humanitarian agencies of the world to help us save our families inside Bani Walid. The people need immediate help and an intervention from the outside.”

The UN did nothing. Washington blocked Russia’s attempt to help. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pathetically said “the international community is closely monitoring the situation.”

Instead of condemning Washington-led genocide, he called for peaceful resolution. UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said:

“The Secretary-General reminds all parties of their obligations under international humanitarian law. He calls on all the Libyan authorities and those in Bani Walid to begin immediately a process to resolve the Bani Walid stand-off peacefully.”

“The Secretary-General believes that the situation in Bani Walid can be resolved in a peaceful manner that preserves the rights of all Libyan citizens and permits the state to exercise its responsibilities there.”

What else would a committed imperial tool say. He’s part of the problem, not the solution. The world body does nothing to stop war, mass killing, destruction, and unspeakable human misery.

Late reports on Bani Walid are mixed. Some say fighting continues. Others say militias or government forces control the city. On October 25, RT headlined “Bani Walid’s fate unknown amid conflicting reports of govt, militia takeovers,” saying:

Libyan officials claim they control the city. Militias say they took over. Bani Walid is dying. A local activist called conditions “very difficult. The city is almost completely destroyed. Residents are buried in the rubble.”

Many are children and the elderly. Government officials lied saying toxic gases weren’t used. In southern parts of the city, resistance continues. It’s just a matter of time until enough human life is lost to eliminate remaining remnants.

One day, when Bani Walid’s true story is told, perhaps we’ll learn many thousands died. Many others suffered horrific injuries. Appalling human suffering won’t end soon.

Washington planned it that way. Its genocidal history claimed many millions of lives. Add Bani Walid to its odious resume.

A Final Comment

Mathaba estimates about 100,000 casualties since NATO formally announced its seven month Libyan mission ended last November. It claimed over 100,000 lives. Many more were injured and displaced.

Other disturbing Mathaba estimates include around one million Libyans forced into exile in the past year, and up to 20,000 held incommunicado as political prisoners. Many are subjected to torture and/or death.

Washington-led NATO turned Libya into charnel house hell. Obama bears full responsibility. He committed a Nuremberg level crime. Occupation harshness makes things worse.

A previous article said Jamahiriya Green Resistance remains strong. Frequent battles erupt. Tribes are involved. Local militias have their own agenda. Insurgents battle each other and Green Resistance for control. Government forces serve Washington and key NATO partners.

Libya will be remembered as one of history’s great crimes. Expect protracted killing, destruction and unspeakable human misery before it ends.

Media scoundrels claim Libya was liberated. Nothing is said about America’s imperial ravaging. It’s standard policy in all US direct and proxy wars. Human lives have no value. Dominance alone matters.

“Right now the civilians in Bani Walid who are holding guns and fighting, they are fighting for their land which should not be taken from them. They just cannot go away.”

RT added that earlier reports said hospital patients “suffered from symptoms typical of gas intoxication.”

Healthy residents with no history of heart and lung diseases had difficulty breathing. They experienced increased heart rates, and suffered from muscle spasms. They also have blurred vision and intermittently fall unconscious.

Dr. Almahdi Azyadi told Russian Today:

“They’re really bombing. Many are reported to the hospitals because of the gas attacks, and it’s happening almost every day. The gas is toxic, and there are some injuries.”

Chemical weapons use is illegal. Washington and key NATO allies use them regularly. The 1907 Hague Convention banned them. WW I use of poison gas caused 100,000 deaths and about 900,000 injuries.

In the 1920s, Britain used poison gas against Iraqis. As Secretary of State for War, Winston Churchill advocated their use. In a secret memo he said, “I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes.”

In 1928, the Geneva Protocol prohibited gas and bacteriological warfare.

America uses chemical, biological, and other banned weapons in all its direct and proxy wars. No-holds barred state terror is policy. Body counts don’t matter. Media scoundrels maintain silence. Genocide goes on openly. They ignore it.

In 1989, 149 nations at the Paris Chemical Weapons Conference condemned use of these weapons. After committing itself to non-use, Washington continued development, production, and covert use. Biological and depleted uranium weapons are also used.

In 1997, America ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). It prohibits development, production, stockpiling, and use of these weapons. It also mandates their destruction.

Washington uses them freely. Huge chemical, biological and nuclear weapons stockpiles are maintained. New more dangerous weapons replace older ones.

CWC mandates non-complying nations be referred to the Security Council for action against them. America’s veto power precludes efforts to deter its lawlessness.

Currently, 188 State Parties are CWC signatories. They include Russia and China. Israel signed it in 1993, but hasn’t ratified it.

Chemical weapons include all toxic ones and their precursors able to cause death, injury, temporary incapacitation or sensory irritation. Munitions and other delivery devices are included.

Toxic substances are categorized as choking, blister, blood or nerve agents. Best known ones include choking chlorine and phosgene, mustard and lewisite blister agents (or vesicants), hydrogen cyanide blood agents, and sarin, soman and VX nerve agents.

Toxic chemicals used industrially are legal, despite their harmful effects. However, when used as weapons, they violate CWC provisions.

CWC’s purpose is to ensure toxic chemicals are produced only for purposes unrelated to weaponry in any form.

On October 24, RT headlined “Siege of Bani Walid, Day 20: ‘Militia committing genocide’ – RT source,” saying:

For three weeks, civilians have been killed “by toxic gas and heavy tank fire….(N)o resolution to the conflict (is) in sight.” Indiscriminate shelling continues.

Footage RT believes is reliable shows dead bodies, “women and children with missing limbs and disfigured faces.” A Libyan national in Egypt with relatives in Bani Walid told RT militias “are committing genocide.”

The city is surrounded and besieged. Essential supplies are blocked. People are starving. Medicines aren’t available to treat patients. Power is mostly off.

Militias “attack the city and are using heavy machinery to demolish houses. They are using internationally banned toxic gases against civilian people, and they bombard the population with tanks.”

They’re ordered “to kill all protesters. The city is blocked from all sides. There is no medicine, food, (or) humanitarian aid. There is nothing inside the city.”

“There is bloodshed in Bani Walid and nobody can hear the people inside the city” cry for help. Militia “guns come from the outside including from” France and Washington.

Major media reports are “lies and forgery. We plead for the humanitarian agencies of the world to help us save our families inside Bani Walid. The people need immediate help and an intervention from the outside.”

The UN did nothing. Washington blocked Russia’s attempt to help. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pathetically said “the international community is closely monitoring the situation.”

Instead of condemning Washington-led genocide, he called for peaceful resolution. UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said:

“The Secretary-General reminds all parties of their obligations under international humanitarian law. He calls on all the Libyan authorities and those in Bani Walid to begin immediately a process to resolve the Bani Walid stand-off peacefully.”

“The Secretary-General believes that the situation in Bani Walid can be resolved in a peaceful manner that preserves the rights of all Libyan citizens and permits the state to exercise its responsibilities there.”

What else would a committed imperial tool say. He’s part of the problem, not the solution. The world body does nothing to stop war, mass killing, destruction, and unspeakable human misery.

Late reports on Bani Walid are mixed. Some say fighting continues. Others say militias or government forces control the city. On October 25, RT headlined “Bani Walid’s fate unknown amid conflicting reports of govt, militia takeovers,” saying:

Libyan officials claim they control the city. Militias say they took over. Bani Walid is dying. A local activist called conditions “very difficult. The city is almost completely destroyed. Residents are buried in the rubble.”

Many are children and the elderly. Government officials lied saying toxic gases weren’t used. In southern parts of the city, resistance continues. It’s just a matter of time until enough human life is lost to eliminate remaining remnants.

One day, when Bani Walid’s true story is told, perhaps we’ll learn many thousands died. Many others suffered horrific injuries. Appalling human suffering won’t end soon.

Washington planned it that way. Its genocidal history claimed many millions of lives. Add Bani Walid to its odious resume.

A Final Comment

Mathaba estimates about 100,000 casualties since NATO formally announced its seven month Libyan mission ended last November. It claimed over 100,000 lives. Many more were injured and displaced.

Other disturbing Mathaba estimates include around one million Libyans forced into exile in the past year, and up to 20,000 held incommunicado as political prisoners. Many are subjected to torture and/or death.

Washington-led NATO turned Libya into charnel house hell. Obama bears full responsibility. He committed a Nuremberg level crime. Occupation harshness makes things worse.

A previous article said Jamahiriya Green Resistance remains strong. Frequent battles erupt. Tribes are involved. Local militias have their own agenda. Insurgents battle each other and Green Resistance for control. Government forces serve Washington and key NATO partners.

Libya will be remembered as one of history’s great crimes. Expect protracted killing, destruction and unspeakable human misery before it ends.

Media scoundrels claim Libya was liberated. Nothing is said about America’s imperial ravaging. It’s standard policy in all US direct and proxy wars. Human lives have no value. Dominance alone matters.
