Libya Is Home to a 21st-Century Slave Market and the UN Security Council Won’t Act | Alternet

Yah, but all the US, French and UK oil profits were worth reneging on the US agreement to leave Libya alone when it renounced nukes. Oh wait, Al Qaeda runs the show now.

Oh well! Let’s go to Yemen and see who we can save there!

CNN recently aired a powerful report from Libya, where the reporters went into a house and shot footage of an auction of human beings. Yes, this is a 21st-century slave market. The journalists – Nima Elbagir, Raja Razek, Alex Platt and Bryony Jones – brought to the world’s attention something grotesque: evidence of how terrible the situation is these days not only in Libya, but also in the Sahel region of Africa. Their story evoked a strong message from the Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, who wrote on Twitter, ‘my prayers go to those suffering slavery in #Libya. May Allah be by your side and may this cruelty come to an end!’ So far, there has been no such reaction from David Cameron (former Prime Minister of the UK), Nikolas Sarkozy (former President of France) and Barack Obama (former President of the United States). The three of them – as leaders of NATO – engineered the destruction of Libya in 2011. What we see now is the detritus of NATO’s policy…

Be seeing you
