Amnesty removed the report from their web site ... I kept a Copy of Amnesty PDF. Pls check and see what is Amnesty hidding from you. Ask @Amnesty why they removed the report. Ask @Amnesty why they want by hidding Libya reality? How far they go on Helping Torture as a HumanRight for Libya Rebels? How Torture can become a sport with @Amnesty help.
Here you can see the difference between secular Syria and its Islamist enemies. ISIS uses women as jihadi wives or suicide bombers, while these Christian Arab girls defend their country with brave faces - learning to become snipers.
As Libya votes to form a national unity government, activist Sukant Chandan speaks to Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear about how the NATO bombing – and Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton – have plunged the country into chaos.
"The West needs a unity government on paper in order to justify its next phase of military intervention, which it wants to do under the guise and the excuse of Daesh in Libya," Chandan tells Loud & Clear host Brian Becker, referring to Monday’s election.
"And indeed, Daesh in Libya are a primary, so-called ‘rebel faction’ that the leading NATO powers teamed up with."
Both the NATO bombing and the subsequent support for terrorist groups were used to overthrow former leader Muammar Gaddafi, who had become a threat to Western governments. Libya Today: The Catastrophe of NATO's Bombing
"Gaddafi was too radical because he was directly assisting for many decades and continuing a new phase of support to black and Asian people in Europe, and other radical movements," Chandan states. "He had to be cut off, so said imperialism, and that’s what they did."
Without the aid of NATO airstrikes, Libya’s government would have held onto power. It was only with the direct intervention of the West that rebel forces were able to overthrow Gaddafi, violently dragging his body through the street – a sight US presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton joked about on live television.
While the mainstream media portrayed Libyans as suffering under Gaddafi, that depiction was far from the truth.
"The Libyan people – and I’ve visited many working class areas and housing projects, etc. – they lived very well," he says. "It’s well known that the United Nations said Libya had the highest development index of any African country, and I think probably people in Libya had the best living standards of arguably any people of the Global South."
Monica Lewinsky, widely referred to as the first victim of cyberbullying after her involvement with then-President Bill Clinton became public, has become a fierce advocate against bullying and, on Tuesday, launched her own line of apps aimed at supporting those who are oppressed.
American and EU leaders are making a "grievous error" by taking Russian President Vladimir Putin for their ally in the fight against Islamic State, billionaire investor George Soros has stated. Putin’s real aim is the EU’s disintegration, Soros alleged.
The leaders of Islamic State maintain a constant liaison with the Turkish government, working out a new approach to the war in Syria as the Russian Air Force cuts off traditional smuggling routes, says Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Il y a quelques jours nous avons eu la surprise de voir Canal+ diffuser un reportage sur l'Ukraine réalisé par Paul Moreira: "Ukraine - Les masques de la révolution". Nous fûmes tout d'abord agréablement surpris de constater enfin une volonté d'objectivité dans un reportage de TV mainstream. Nous trouvons certes le film encore trop indulgent envers Kiev et ses soutiens européens (ne montrant pas le pire!), tout en faisant passer quelques allusions sur certaines responsabilités de la Russie que nous ne reconnaissons pas. Mais là étaient probablement les conditions pour qu"il puisse être diffusé. Et ce fut déjà un sacré défi !
Les jours qui ont suivi, la consolation a fait place au dégoût devant la réaction de la traditionnelle bande d'antirusses pro-révolutionnaires obsessionnels qui tient en main la majorité des rédactions de la presse bien pensante (le trio gagnant: Libé, L'express, L'Obs). Paul Moreira va soudain s'apercevoir à quel point les chiens enragés (de garde) veillent sur nos consciences, eux les "vrais journalistes" qui n'ont pas mis un pied là-bas et recopient la dictée de leurs petits copains de Kiev et des activistes enragés "d'Euromaïdan France"."
The 28-member trans-Atlantic military block, along with a number of European countries, is intentionally hyping up the “myth” that Russia allegedly poses a so-called “threat” to Sweden and the Baltic states, Russia’s Foreign Minister said.
Patriarchal press service head Alexander Volkov said that the text of the joint declaration that will be signed by Russian Patriarch Kirill and Pope Francis upon the conclusion of their meeting in Havana, Cuba, will be translated in several European languages.
On Wednesday, the body tasked with forming a Libyan national unity government was given an extension until Sunday to do so. At the same time, with the US and several European nations itching to 'take action' in the country, members of Libya's internationally recognized government are stepping out against such a move.
Earlier today, we highlighted the rather abysmal results reported by Maersk, the world’s largest shipping company.
To the extent the conglomerate is a bellwether for global growth and trade, things are looking pretty grim. Maersk Line - the company's golden goose and the world's largest container operator - racked up $182 million in red ink last quarter and the outlook for 2016 isn't pretty either. The company now sees demand for seaborne container transportation rising a meager 1-3% for the year.
“The demand for transportation of goods was significantly lower than expected, especially in the emerging markets as well as the Group’s key Europe trades, where the impact was further accelerated by de-stocking of the high inventory levels,” the company said, in its annual report.
Just how bad have things gotten amid the global deflationary supply glut you ask?
Worse than 2008 according to CEO Nils Andersen who last November warned that “the world’s economy is growing at a slower pace than the International Monetary Fund and other large forecasters are predicting.” Here’s what Andersen told FT:
“It is worse than in 2008. The oil price is as low as its lowest point in 2008-09 and has stayed there for a long time and doesn’t look like going up soon. Freight rates are lower. The external conditions are much worse but we are better prepared.”
As FT goes on to note, “capacity in the container shipping industry increased 8 per cent in 2015” despite the fact that Maersk only sees global trade growing at between 1% and 3% in 2016.
Imports to Brazil, Europe, Russia, and Africa are all falling, Andersen warned. The company's business, Andersen says, is suffering from a "massive deterioration." That, you can bet, will likely lead to a "massive deterioration" in Maersk's shares, which took a substantial hit on Wednesday in the wake of the quarterly and annual results.
Democracy or disintegration are the EU’s only options, Greece’s ex-finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, said before the official launch of a pan-European political movement he hopes will help tackle the nationalization of policies in the 28-member union.
