Prof. Vijay Prashad, Trinity College, CT, USA speaks about the latest developments in the Libyan Civil War and NATO's actions. He also talks about the International Criminal Court's hypocrisy in not trying NATO for war crimes or for that matter, the US' drone attacks killing several civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

NATO headquarters shares with the caves of al-Qaeda the error of hubris.
Vijay Prashad, Counterpunch, June 18, 2011
Cleverly, the Washington establishment seeks to reorder events so that it can take credit for things it did not do and pass on the blame for things it did do. President Barack Obama not only wants to share the Arab Spring's glory but, with the Group of Eight (G8) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), wants to help shape its aftermath. On the other hand, Obama seeks to avert his eyes from the mess of Afghanistan and pay less heed to the desperate rants from President Hamid Karzai about the manufactured futility of his country.

Professor at Trinity College, Hartford, CT, USA, Vijay Prashad comments on the latest in Libya as the war between rebels and Muammar Gaddafi drags on even as NATO bombing continues. A Newsclick Presentation

The Libyan military intervention has now taken a toll of thousands. Civilians continue to die as the civil war rages in the country. It matters very little to people if they are killed by artillery fire from Gaddafi's troops or from air strikes of the NATO forces. Only the gullible will believe that NATO smart bombs – unlike Gaddafi's artillery -- only target the military and do not kill civilians.
The reason for military intervention no longer seems to be about protecting civilians, it is clearly for a regime change, writes Prabir Purkayastha
