Amnesty International: Rebels also carried out torture and killings
“Rebels as well as pro-Gaddafi forces have perpetrated killings, torture and other abuses during the uprising against the Libyan regime, say human rights investigators.” The Guardian
So when Harper and other NATO nations intervened in Libya they said they were doing to it protect Libyans from atrocities by Gadhafi. Now it turns out that rebels were doing the same – torture and killing. Sooo! What was the purpose of our mission again?? If rebels torture and kill and NATO bombs and kills innocent civilians then it is for liberation but if Gaddafi forces do it then it is crimes against the humanity. Moreover, rebels were especially cruel to black fighters and have been accused of racism. What a hypocritical world we live in!
There should have been a better way to deal with the civil war in Libya.
