This video from Japan says about itself:
On March 20 2011, on the 8th Anniversary of outbreak of the Iraq War, a big rally and demonstration with 1550 participants was held in Shibuya, in the downtown of Tokyo. The rally emphasizes “No war, no nuke!” “Down with Kan-administration!” “Stop all nuke plants!” “Workers’ solidarity!” “Organize workers’ relief!” and “Definitely against bombardments on Libya by US-, British and French imperialists! “
With 55 missions, the French Rafales and Mirage 2000s toted up over 400 flight hours in the course of the missions over Libya. According to an aeronautical source, the cost of keeping a Rafale in the air for an hour is 10,000 to 13,000 euros, not counting fuel. For a Mirage 2000, it is 10,000 to 11,000 euros an hour. The missions lead, of course, to an additional fuel cost: here.
Joseph Gerson, Truthout: “Having launched its Libyan regime change war to oust the Qaddafi dictatorship from the United States’ German-based Africa Command, the Obama administration this week arranged to continue its air war under cover of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) alliance. Long understood to be a relatively benign and defensive alliance focused on European security needs, people across Europe and, increasingly, in the United States, are questioning how and why NATO is now focused on waging non-defensive wars beyond Europe”: here.
So here we are pouring shiploads of cash into yet another war, this time in Libya, while simultaneously demolishing school budgets, closing libraries, laying off teachers and police officers, and generally letting the bottom fall out of the quality of life here at home: here.
