March 19, 2011 by legitgov

Western powers launch airstrikes on Libyan military forces 19 Mar 2011 Western powers intervened in Libya on Saturday to prevent Moammar Gadhafi from crushing the rebellion in the eastern city of Benghazi. In a dramatic statement, French president Nicolas Sarkozy announced that French airplanes were in the air over Benghazi to prevent Gadhafi’s aircraft from bombarding the city. Sarkozy said the planes would also attack tanks on the ground if necessary to end any assault. The west will oppose any aggression against the civilian population in Benghazi, Sarkozy said. [Except when Israel attacks the 'civilian population' in Gaza, or when US killer drones bomb 'civilian populations' 24/7 in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and any other place where there's oil, gas or opium routes to control -- then no problem! Am I the only one that sees through this hypocritical humanitarian bullsh*t and pathetic calls to oust dictators -- aka previous CIA assets 'going rogue,' recipients of tons of US armaments? The US government doesn't give a *damn* about civilians, anywhere! The US just wants oil production to slow to a crawl so Exxon Mobil's profits can skyrocket. More 'bad economy' equals more union busting and further decimation of the working class. --LRP]

Russia lifts ban on polar bear hunting

March 19, 2011 by legitgov

Russia lifts ban on polar bear hunting --Russia has legalised the hunting of polar bears for the first time in more than half a century, a move that critics say will put further pressure on the endangered mammal. 19 Mar 2011 Roman Kopin, the governor of Russia's remote Chukotka region, signed a decree allowing the area's indigenous people to hunt and kill 29 polar bears each year, including 19 females. Russian wildlife campaigners condemned the move, saying the polar bear was already threatened by a shrinking habitat and rampant poaching. Varvara Semonova, a wildlife campaigner, said the decision would "threaten the survival of the polar bear in the Russian Arctic and will have not only ecological but serious social and political consequences for us."
