A year after the invasion of Libya: poverty, division and deathSource: AVNFrance was the country responsible for launching the first bomb on Libya and paving the way for a military invasion led by the the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) which had the precise goal of overthrowing the government of Muammar Gaddafi.  On March 19, 2011, when the Security Council of the United Nations approved the development of a no-fly zone over the country in North Africa, it turned out to be a non-stop raid that lasted eight months, and yet today there is still no actual record of the consequences of what was produced in the population. However, in late February of last year, the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, declared that her country did not discount any possibility in intervening in Libya. A few days later, the United States would lead the NATO intervention, calling for the "collaboration" of its allies France, Britain and Italy, among others, the difference from the previous invasions they led in Afghanistan and Iraq, where they sent in their military strength unilaterally. Before Gaddafi's government was replaced by terrorist elements in October last year, from this action, they were responsible for 5,000 deaths due to bombing. However, for their part, reports on preliminary data by the UN recently gave an accounting for the deaths of only 60 civilians by air raids by the Atlantic alliance. According to the Venezuelan ambassador in Libya, Afif Tajeldine, the death toll could exceed 70,000, given that NATO has made more than 20,000 air raids and surpassed 8,000 armed attacks. Interviewed by Radio del Sur, the diplomat, who now resides in Tunisia since the Venezuelan embassy was attacked by pro-colonialist groups that fought against Gaddafi,  affirmed that the invasion was aimed at the conquest of oil for the United States. "Before the entry of NATO into Libya, 118 people died.

After NATO came into Tripoli, they killed more than 70,

000 people in the capital and its environs. They died the victims of U.S. weapons and no one reports it.  There were no more than 118 who were killed in the conflict between Gaddafi's government and military-terrorist groups. However, the 70,000 people killed by NATO are not in the reports of victims of the conflict," denounced Tajeldine. The diplomat recalled the high level of human development that the country of Libya had, the second in quality of life in Africa and among the top ten worldwide. The North African country was the victim of a "sinister plan against the peace and development of the Libyan people, attacked militarily by the United States and Europe based on disinformation and a media war, which portrayed the Gaddafi as a dictator, murderer and antisocial.

An effort at demonization," he asserted. Before Gaddafi was reported "murdered" he had warned that the nation would end up like Afghanistan, within boundaries that Al Qaeda cells operated, and that the main goal was to divide the country geographically. On February 22, 2011, the Libyan leader expressed in a speech to the nation that "the U.S. wants to do to Libya the same as they did in Afghanistan and even in Iraq. They want Libya to become a torn country, and the United States will do the same as they did with the Afghans and Iraqis to our territories." Gaddafi aggregated "if the Americans come, back will come colonialism, they are terrorists who want to convert Libya into a country that depends on them." At present, Libya suffers from a deep internal conflict where armed gangs of the NTC are constantly fighting for power in the various regions.  Journalistic investigations proved the presence of militants of Al Qaeda, a situation that the UN and even less the U.S.

and NATO, were willing to admit.  The process of division of Libya began weeks ago when tribal leaders and politicians declared the autonomy of Cyrenaica, an ancient region that was part of the three federations during the monarchy, overthrown in 1969 by the Green Revolution led by Gaddafi. "Now we see a divided Libya, where they send their terrorist military groups, aided by the United States, NATO and the governments of the Gulf.  Now, each has its share of the booty.  In Tripoli there are no fewer than twenty military groups and each does what they want, without law or justice. We divided Libya, but the plan is to fragment it further," warned Tajeldine. On the internal situation on Libyan territory, the Venezuelan diplomat said that within the country "no one can go out on the streets after 7 pm and almost no salaries are being paid." Tajeldine warned that Libya's international reserves, which exceed 200 billion dollars, are "in the hands of imperialism, which has enjoyed the possession of this wealth."Translated from the Portuguese version by: Lisa KarpovaPravda.Ru.
