NATO has admitted a missile strike hit a civilian home in the Libyan capital of Tripoli today, killing a number of civilians including at least two toddlers. Though far from the first strike to kill civilians in the Libyan War, it is the first that NATO officials have admitted to.
NATO said the attack was targeting a missile site but instead hit a house full of civilians, saying they “regret the loss of innocent civilian lives” but that NATO has gone out of its way to avoid civilian casualties in the war.
The East Libyan rebels were quick to shrug off the attack, however, saying that they “hold the Gadhafi regime responsible” for the deaths even though it was an errant NATO strike that actually killed the people.
US and French forces began attacking Libya on March 19, ostensibly based on a UN resolution calling for them to “protect civilians” with a no fly zone. Though officials have argued this extended to allowing the continuing air war, it will be difficult to defend the growing number of civilian killings by the NATO forces themselves.

Rest easy, Obama spin-master and adviser David Axelrod assures us that it's still "Cool To Be An Obama Supporter" and that his supporters "weren't involved in some sort of cult of personality." Get it?
What idiots The Arab League and all the other African Nations who invited NATO and the West to intervene in Libya must feel now?
This is the ONLY thing such intervention does. Kill and wound innocent civilians NOT PROTECT CIVILIANS AS CLAIMED BY THEM.
Arab League — my advice to you is go back to the UN and ask that this killings be stopped.
Get NATO and the West out of Africa.. They only want your OIL. LAND and MINERAL WEALTH – they are not in the least bit interested in improving your lives or conditions – see what they are protecting in BAHRAIN – their own self interest.
Going back is no help. The UN means UNSC (security council) governed by US, in particular subject to US veto, and therefore the resolution adopted by UNSC can only be revoked if there is no veto by the US.
But at least the murderers will know that they cannot fool all
Got to 'protect the civilians' by bombing and killing them – right?
NATO and the US have NO business at war with Libya.
And exactly what were German Nazis hanged at the end of WWII for? – for "waging aggressive warfare" – which is what NATO and the US does today.
Look people.., NATO is a militarism regime.., is "the" long arm of US.., if you go back in time of Iraq war.., they were doing the same in Iraq, doing it in Afghanistan and Pakistan and now in Libya.., why.., you might ask.., simple.., they are sick.., the regime within a militarism regime is sick.., when there is a war it is their mental sickness that sets in.., they see it as a war.., they been brain washed by being a "professional solders".., do you remember the killings by the helicopter attack on the Iraqi reporters and civilians.., do you remember the wan that come to help.., do you remember the children in that.., wan…, this is how it works… rest.., as they say it a BS.., tell me NATO and show the world how a fired missile from a war plain goes wild and hit a residential when is programmed to hit TARGETED AREA….? This is to show that UNATO is there to kill Libyan people.., this is to tell Kaddafi that NATO will kill your people.., this is to show the power and inhumanity of a unjust war.., once again.., conducted by US and NATO militarism regimes.., not a democracy nor even close to it.., but a militarism regimes.
If you don't like USA then fucking leave!! Quit bitching!
Is H stands for what Humo…, or Humo – graphy.., I don't even live in US.., I wouldn't want to live there because of your kind stupid bitches moaning like a F……." king racists.
So that is the only choice an American who is horrified at the huge loss of civilian life has is to put up with it or leave. As Peter Tork said:" America right or wrong, America wrong needs help." The goal is no longer to win wars but to move exhausted American troops from one war zone to another while making American arms dealers rich. The US military cannot fight it's way out of a guerrilla paper bag and has not won a guerrilla war in 109 years (the Philippine Insurrection of 1902).
If I had the money and resources I'd be gone in a heartbeat. Fate has forced me to live out my life in a 3rd world dictatorial empire with no future.
But please, keep scaring away America's best and brightest with your chest thumping idiocy. Every future Engineer and Doctor that you convince to become an expat helps to farther weaken the empire and hasten its implosion.
Cool to support an illegal impostor whose very name the Americans cannot be sure of?.
Is this the state of the US and its people today.
I guess so.
When you bomb and blitz half the planet in illegal wars why the nicetie of having a legal head of state.
Easier to just imprison honest men who question like Col. Lakin.
Dave H, if you want to be an unchecked violent racist and a thief spitting on the constitution, you better leave. NATO is going for the 'Satanic Creepy' award because the castled drones of Europe set up a banking system that only works when the subjects don't understand it. And slaves are still needed to pay the castled drones' bills. And America and Japan are their competition.
Too bad brats like Al "I invented the internet" (even though he got a 'D' in Natural Science class in college) Gore thought it a good idea to have the Nixon A.E.C. site and license 6 reactors on the beach in the center of the #1 tsunami zone on earth with the spent fuel in aquariums on top. They did'nt figure the result of the guaranteed failure and meltdowns after a large tsunami would hit them in Europe (This is up for debate), But just in case it did, they could scurry to their underground shelters.
Those are your problem as a voting American. Rounding these people up before they can finish us all off. If you don't want to help, leave and dance with Benny the Rat and the Church of England.
Now, we have augmented weather patterns going on across America. Review the dutchsinse.com videos from March to the end of May to see proof chemtrail/HAARP combinations have been seeding tornado clusters and flooding in the Mississippi river system as well as other directed locations. England owns the Alaska based HAARP facility and archived HAARP STATED PURPOSE documentation. And for some reason, the Army Corps of Engineers has been saving up water behind dams in the Mississippi river feed system even though the snow pack in the Rockies is at an 88 year high. This is part of the 'Acts of God' facet of the attacks on America. If you don't understand it, study it until you do or leave. Dance with Benny.
