Bishop Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, Vicar Apostolic of Tripoli, on the "so-called humanitarian air raids" — Tripoli air strikes killed 40 civilians claims Vatican official. "I say that the diplomatic solution is the best way to end the bloodshed between the Libyans, giving Gaddafi a dignified way out."
"While we have not seen credible proof – nor has it been claimed – that the Gaddafi regime has engaged in any large-scale slaughter of Libyan civilians, we see increasing reports of civilians who have been killed in airstrikes by the forces that are supposed to protect them!" exclaims Congressman Ron Paul, suggesting "we may be causing the very problem our intervention was supposed to prevent" — Another Illegal Killerthon.
Linh Dinh reminds us, "An American war is always humanitarian in aim and execution" — Heartwarming Massacres from Iraq to Libya. "We wage war not because we love to kick ass, then go home, not because we’re born to kill, murder ‘em all, let God sort ‘em out, etc, but because we love foreigners, actually, the browner the better."
