The mass pro-Gaddafi street demonstration of one million Libyans held in the capital Tripoli has gone unreported by Western media as has news of civilians killed for the past three months.

A word of comment: I wonder how Mr. Obama along with Cameron and Sarkozy could dare to expect to win the heart of Libyan people to them and to terrorists by bombing Libyan cities. This did not work. Libyan majority is in support of Gaddafi.

A word of comment: As the tail of NATO's lie has grown too long, this time they could not hide this time that their bombs, what Obama calls bombs for humanitarian action, killed civilians. One wonders what kind of humanitarian action this is, as even terrorists would not make little children the target of their bombs.

Read NATO admits mistakenly striking Libyan opposition forces By By the CNN Wire Staff, June 18, 2011 7:26 p.m. EDT.

Key Issues & Facts: In its statement, NATO said that "a column of military vehicles, including tanks," were spotted Thursday around al-Brega where Gadhafi forces "had recently been operating." During what it called "a particularly complex and fluid battle scenario," leaders in the military alliance ordered a strike after determining these vehicles posed "a threat to civilians." "We regret any possible loss of life or injuries caused by this unfortunate incident," NATO said in its statement.

A word of comment: NATO military leaders determined that the vehicles posed a threat to civilians -- but the vehicles were operated by the rebels.

Is NATO now admitting that the rebels posed a threat to the civilians?

Yet, they regret the loss of life, stemming from their actions to protect civilians?

Were they or weren't they protecting civilians?

If they were, why are they apologizing?

If they weren't, why are they in Libya?

Key Issues & Facts: Behind the facade of normality, there is a sense of nervousness. Many people now possess guns. Explosions and brief exchanges of fire ring out almost every night. Neighborhoods are patrolled by armed vigilante groups, and ordinary people worry about crime

One Benghazi resident, Isa, said two people were killed two days ago in a shootout after a family feud escalated.

"Before the revolution life was normal. Now, life is abnormal. Nothing is normal..." said Ali, the construction worker.

A word of comment: A democratic society is where a variety of opinions are listened and tolerated. Yet, the opposite it the case in Benghazi where the rebels kill citizens they do no like without trial. Can one expect a healthy democracy can grow in the environment where a causal free speech can cost his or her life?

Key Point Analysis:

Bombs Raining down over Rebel Units from NATO Apache Helicopters

It has emerged that Nato has been dropping leaflets threatening Apache air strikes against government forces. The leaflets – each featuring a picture of an Apache helicopter and a burning tank along with the words: "If you go on killing the children and families you will be destroyed" – were sprinkled from a bomb that detonated above no-man's land east of Misrata, raining down over rebel units who had advanced beyond the frontline without telling Nato.

The Risk of Civilian Casualties by NATO's Bombing Campaign

There is concern, meanwhile, that the longer the conflict goes on, the greater the risk of civilian casualties as Nato commanders succumb to political pressure to step up the bombing campaign. "The longer the war goes on the greater the chance of a blunder resulting in significant civilian casualties," warns the IISS in its latest Strategic Comments. It adds: "The risks also increase of both the government and rebels becoming more radicalised and perpetrating war crimes."

We wonder if democracy is still healthy when media is manipulating information for war propaganda of the dictator of foreign policy. Yet, we see a ray of hope for American democracy as Cynthia McKinney, the former US congresswoman and presidential candidate, went Libya to see the truth. As NATO attacks continue in Libya, ex US Congresswoman and former presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney went to the country on a non-governmental fact-finding mission to see what exactly is going on in the war-torn country. Cynthia McKinney believes the bombardments of Libyan cities and other measures taken by NATO, causing civilian casualties, represent the idea of "collective punishment".
