In light of the fantastic news that the International Criminal Court is seeking an arrest warrant for Libyan dictator-cum-butcher Muammar al-Gadhaffi, it’s worth taking some time out to recognize the little people -- in this case, the people who are so little that they perversely declared the NATO intervention in Libya to enforce the no-fly zone a “crime against humanity”.
That would be none other than PressCORE.ca, and its editor, Paul W Kincaid.
On March 24, 2011, PressCORE published a petition calling for the leaders of the US, French, British, and Canadian governments to be indicted for “crimes against humanity and war crimes”.
The petition reads:
“We the undersigned demand the immediate cessation of all unlawful armed attacks against the territorial integrity and political independence of Libya and that indictments be filed immediately against the above named political leaders of France, the US, the UK, and Canada for:
1. Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of a crime against peace
2. Planning, initiating and waging wars of aggression and other crimes against peace
3. War crimes
4. Crimes against humanity”
