Here we go again!

Another imperialist war for control of resources, sold to the public by lies & misinformation.

This time, Libya - with the largest oil supply in Africa - is under criminal attack from the western war mongers of international capitalists, misusing the UN as a false cover for their aggression.

Once again, the corporate-owned mainstream media is playing its role as 'Ministry of Propaganda' for the ruling class.

Once again, we are being told the big lie that this is all about "humanitarian intervention" to save innocent civilians. It is not!

Don't trust the mainstream media - check out the widest source of alternative news & views, and make up your own mind.

Always remember: "In times of war, the first casualty is truth."
