Rights group: Bodies of 53 apparent Gadhafi loyalists found in Libyan hotel
cnn ^ | 10/24/2011 | staff

Posted on 10/24/2011 3:30:37 AM PDT by tobyhill

The bodies of 53 people, believed to be supporters of ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, has been found in a hotel that was under the control of anti-Gadhafi fighters, Human Rights Watch said Monday.

The rights group said it found the bodies clustered together at Hotel Mahari in Sirte on Sunday. About 20 residents were putting the bodies in body bags to prepare them for burial when Human Rights Watch found them.

"We found 53 decomposing bodies, apparently (Gadhafi) supporters, at an abandoned hotel in Sirte, and some had their hands bound behind their backs when they were shot," said Peter Bouckaert, emergencies director of Human Rights Watch.

"This requires the immediate attention of the Libyan authorities to investigate what happened and hold accountable those responsible."

Officials with the National Transitional Council, Libya's new leadership, were not immediately available for comment.

The residents told Human Rights Watch investigators they found the bodies last week after the fighting in Sirte stopped and they returned home.

See what happens when you fight an undeclared war? All the lines are blurred.

It's not blurred to me. Obama stuck his nose where it doesn't belong because he thought it would help him politically but people have already found out who the “rebels” really are.

No, it's just war. Happens every time there is a war, where ever people hate each other. Since beginning of time. As horrible as it seems it is what ends war. When ancient people fought, the winner killed and consumed the loser. No one left to fight, or continue fighting. Now, we have brokered peace settlements, and the fighting never ends. During WWII, if we would have negotiated a peace treaty, with both sides negotiating, we would have WWIII about 10 years later. WWI is proof of that. Instead we fought mercilessly until the other side could no longer fight. They wanted the war to end, and thus it ended. The Mideast will rage on until one side kills enough of the other side is dead. Then you will have peace. The ancients figured it out a long time ago.

Why do we, the West, think that war is this nice, neat, event? There was a time not so long ago, that children playing war games, in the backyard would shout out things like, “rape, pillage, and plunder.” The kids didn’t quite understand the “rape” part of what they said, but pillage and plunder were quite well understood.

These things are the horrors of war. History teaches us that no man was spared and women were raped or taken as sex slaves. Where are these men’s wives and daughters, eh?

We know these people do not adhear to our “Conventions,” and we should not find shocking the mass murder of the loyalists and their families.

For all our declared civilized ways, when CWII breaks-out here...I have pondered what we will do with all the progressive loyalists and their polluted ideaology?

What’s the big deal.

Mexicans dump 35 bodies in the street and that country isn’t even in a war. We send them out automobile plants so they can have American jobs.

How many have been killed in Mexico, and we don’t even close the borders?

Sure 53 people with their hands tied behind their backs killed is an atrocity, but they didnt kill and mutilate them like the Mexicans do.

I am not excusing this onlt pointing out that right here in our neighboring country which is not at war these same things are happening and our government refuses to recognise it.

You are right of course - but time time the people who did the shooting were President Obama’s Allies.

and all the more reason we should have never gone to Libya. Going there is the reason Obama, NATO, UN, Security Council, etc, are all complicit in these war crimes and for all those people that want to excuse these animals, yes it's war crimes.

I'd suppose the Progressives and their running dog lackeys will be envying the dead Gaddafi followers in that hotel.

No doubt it will be far from pretty.

Alternatively we could simply put them into an eternal trial structure where every day they are brought from their cells to the courtroom to be beaten to death by lawyers.

Don’t ponder. We are not going to win. In the end it is going to be Israel and the American right vs the rest of the world. This is why the left have been trying to take our guns since Wilson.

The American right is too civilized. We look to Jesus and the old testament for guidance. The rest of the world are Islamofacsists and Marxists.

We know how to win. We have the horses and 200+ years of military training to take out the left. In the end it will be our civilized ways and love for our founders Nd their laws that will destroy us.

They just started working on the second 100 million.

Once a bunch have nukes it should get there pretty quick.

This is Obama’s mob-ocray at its best... problem for Obama is, here in America, even the crudest OWSers and unionistas have an Americanized sense of morality and cannot stoop to the level of, Libyan mob antics. Otherwise, Obama would be supreme dictator by now.

Did they ever find the remains of the woman that was on TV brandishing the pistol and vowing to fight to the death? I remember that the rebels had taken her when they over ran the station.

Do you suppose it bothers Peter Bouckaert, Emergency Director of Human Rights Watch, that he is a self-parodying fool?

"We found 53 decomposing bodies, apparently (Gadhafi) supporters, at an abandoned hotel in Sirte, and some had their hands bound behind their backs when they were shot," said Peter Bouckaert, emergencies director of Human Rights Watch.

"This requires the immediate attention of the Libyan authorities to investigate what happened and hold accountable those responsible."

What Libyan authorities? The Libyan Authority was just shot dead in an ambulance a few days ago. Even if anybody was inclined to do so, there will be no investigation because there are no investigators.

And then comes the cherry on top of the sundae...

Officials with the National Transitional Council, Libya's new leadership, were not immediately available for comment.

No sh!t, Sherlock... I am not defending Kadaffy, but what he has been replaced with is almost certainly much worse.

You don't understand how brilliant our strategy was!

Since we intervened on the side of the lunatic muslim fanatics, they will love us now and not want to kill us any more! Sure, they wound up with 10,000 surface-to-air missiles... But now they will be friendly to the West!

What could go wrong?

Moammar Kqgadhafphai was an evil madman with blood drenched hands.

Those who overthrew and killed him are well on the way to filling his shoes.

And the circle continues.

absolutely. this blood is on U.S. hands.

how many people were found shot with tied hands,
before NATO went and dropped 2,000 boms on Libya?
(NATO itself, admitted killing many more civilians,
than Gaddafi was “alleged” to have, before it started.)

now, black civilians are being mistreated, and evicted
from their homes, etc.
Libya now, is in the hands of the Islamists.

(Like Egypt. both countries had banned the Muslim Brotherhood. Now, both are under the control of Islamists.
Sure I blame Gaddafi for Lockerbie. but how many planes will go down, from those thousands of groud to air missiles that have gone “missing” ? It was NOT in the best interest of the U.S. to replace him or Mubarak, with religious fanatics. Now even Afghanistan, says it will fight with Pakistan AGAINST the USA, if needed.)

During WWII, if we would have negotiated a peace treaty, with both sides negotiating, we would have WWIII about 10 years later.

Without nuclear weapons we would still have had WWIII 10 or 20 years later, probably 10 or less.

But your point is extremely well taken that modern "peace" efforts whenever war breaks out also prevent the resolution of one side achieving unambiguous victory. While victory by one side is bloody and violent it is at least a resolution, whereas our present methods tend to keep conflicts simmering forever.

The "Mideast conflict" is really the Israel conflict. If Israel had never been established, these guys would be fighting each other over something else, but in the present world the existence of Israel is the root and focus.

I really don't like to say it, but the most likely end to the conflict is the destruction of Israel. It seems unlikely to me that Israel will make it to the end of this century.

Unless you believe they have the really big gun, God, on their side.

Unexpected? The most unfortunate fact about all of this is that Muslims are loyal only to Islam. In the future, the American people will be blamed for spilling Muslim blood and for murdering leaders of Islamic Countries. Meanwhile, Obama will trot around the globe, Nobel Peace Prize in hand, making speeches and hauling in paychecks.
