As new details emerged of atrocities carried out by Colonel Gaddafi’s soldiers and mercenaries, Britain yesterday ruled out committing ground troops in Libya.

David Cameron insisted that it was important to adhere to a UN mandate and not to take action that could alienate the Arab world.

He said: ‘What we’ve said is there is no question of invasion or an occupation – this is not about Britain putting boots on the ground.’

Mr Cameron said the Western alliance’s mission was clear: to enforce a no-fly zone and to press on with sorties to destroy Gaddafi’s tanks and artillery that are being used to kill civilians.

UN Resolution 1973, which established the no-fly zone, authorises forces to take ‘all necessary measures’ to protect civilians, while excluding ‘a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory.’

But Mr Cameron said the alliance would help in every other way to stop Gaddafi ‘unleashing this hell on people in Misrata and other towns up and down the Libyan coast.’

He spoke as chaotic scenes continued yesterday in Ajdabiya, which Gaddafi fighters were trying to encircle.

All weekend, scores of the dead, the dying and the horribly injured were being ferried into the town’s sole functioning hospital with their skin torn and burned from their bodies by shrapnel and rocket attacks.

His eyes red after days of no sleep dealing with more than 300 horrifically injured rebel soldiers in the last week alone, Dr Jamal Mohammed said there was little he could do for many of those hit by rockets.

‘They are killing the old and young alike,’ he said, his gown stained with blood. ‘There was an old man of at least 70, who had been torn apart by rockets, and there have been boys just into their teens whose lives are over.’

Dr Mohammed also revealed that Gaddafi’s soldiers were carrying out summary executions of captured rebels and civilians.

‘We’ve had many people brought in with their hands tied behind their backs and a bullet-hole in the head,’ he said. ‘It is happening all the time. They are killing anyone they can catch, even if they are not fighters.’

Details of atrocities being carried out by Gaddafi’s troops were supported by Human Rights Watch, the U.S. watchdog, which revealed that the embattled Libyan leader is targeting civilians with cluster bombs – devices that send out a hail of flesh-shredding shrapnel on impact, cutting victims to pieces.

Attempts to stop Gaddafi ‘unleashing his hell’ were also failing in Misrata, the besieged town in western Libya, where eight men, women and children were slaughtered as they stood in a queue for bread last week.

The town was last night under a sustained bombardment.

As well as cluster bombs, Libyan forces are using Soviet-designed Grad rockets in their bombardment of rebel positions in Ajdabiya and Misrata.

Last night the UK Government said it will hold urgent talks with the UN on how to get desperately-needed supplies to Libyan civilians in Misrata.

Tens of thousands are trapped in the town after more than a month of fighting which has killed at least 300 and injured upwards of 1,000, including many children.

International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell is flying to New York today to discuss the deteriorating humanitarian situation with aid bodies.

Details also emerged yesterday of gang rape being used by Gaddafi’s soldiers, many of them African mercenaries supplied with Viagra by the Libyan leader’s officials.

Most victims have been too afraid of the stigma facing them and their families to talk. But a woman called Leila, 28, said she was going public because ‘unbelievable crimes’ were being committed.

‘The soldiers told me they would kill my children,’ Leila said. ‘They sneered “you or your children”. I held one son close but one of the men forced me down on to the bed.’

Reports emerged from Washington yesterday that the U.S. is searching for a safe haven, most likely in Africa, that might persuade Gaddafi to abandon his Tripoli stronghold.

£1.2m A MONTH FOR RAF TO STAY IN ITALIAN HOTELS

THE RAF is spending £40,000 a night for crew to stay at four-star hotels near the Italian airbase used to launch bombing missions over Libya.

Around 700 pilots and ground staff have been put up around the town of Gioia del Colle in hotels which are block-booked until September.

Many of the crew are on half board in hotels that charge £100 a night for double rooms.
The bill – which runs to £1.2million a month – has revived anger over David Cameron’s decision to axe the aircraft carrier Ark Royal and the Harrier jump jets that flew from it.

Admiral Sir Sandy Woodward, who led the task force during the Falklands War, has written to armed forces minister Nick Harvey, calling on him to reconsider cuts to the Navy’s budget.

The vast costs of running the conflict from a base in Italy prove that scrapping Ark Royal was a false economy, he said.

‘The political and operational adaptability provided by operating air power from the sea is now starkly clear against the cost of the current operation where six months [of] land-based RAF operations would cost the order of £1billion, three times the cost of running a carrier plus the Harriers for four whole years,’ he told the Sunday Times.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: ‘The MoD has ensured the best value for money option available in terms of accommodation for the short-notice deployment of service personnel to Italy to assist in the protection of citizens in Libya.

‘Due to the swiftness of this deployment, there was no tented or alternative accommodation. Work is ongoing to scope different accommodation for those deployed in Italy.’

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
