A recent article by Manlio Dinucci reminds us about the misery brougt to Libya by NATO:
Today more than 600,000 migrants of around 45 nationalities are trapped in Libya, practically reduced to a state of slavery, forced to work without pay and beaten. More and more are those who ask not to be brought to Europe, but to return to their countries to escape this condition. Particularly dramatic is that of young women, sold at auction, raped and forced into prostitution.
All this thanks to the operation “Unified Protector” that, informs the Italian Ministry of Defense, was carried out by NATO in 2011 for “the protection of civilians in Libya”.
Even the NATO “hang around” Sweden participated militarily in the attack on Libya – a war that Stephen Lendman calls a Nuremberg level crime. Before, Libya had the highest Human Development Index in Africa. How come so many people are still buying the narrative that NATO is for protection, when reality has shown so clearly what NATO has brought to Libya?
Recently, some Danes have been charged under section 109 of the Danish Criminal Code, which carries a maximum sentence of 12 years in prison, for leaking state secrets. One of them is the head of the Danish Defence Intelligence Service, Lars Findsen. Another is the former Defence Minister, Claus Hjort Frederiksen. Danish Radio reports (link to content in Danish) that:
Last month, the Defense Intelligence Service (FE) and the Police Intelligence Service (PET) held talks with Danish media houses, reminding the chiefs that stories based on leaked information could also be a breach of the clause.
And that message is described by the editor-in-chief of Weekendavisen, Martin Krasnik, as intimidating.
Charlotta Friborg at Swedish Television (link to content in Swedish/Danish) says:
I think that what I hear about what is happening in Denmark right now is very worrying. Denmark has a constitutional ban on censorship, just like Sweden. This means that you as a publisher can be held responsible for your publications afterwards. That’s a whole other thing. That authorities call in media representatives to warn or teach, I think is unprecedented
In many parts of the world, we are seeing how critical voices are often silenced, if they speak out against the official narrative. Big Tech seems to go hand in hand with government agencies, in these cases. Also highly qualified people are affected. Often the silencing is underreported. A recent example is that Twitter has suspended virologist Robert Malone. One of the few large news outlets to report about this is RT.
Two days ago, Danish Radio published information about secret experiments conducted on Danish orphans (link to content in Danish). The experiments were conducted decades ago and were backed by the CIA. There was no proper informed consent. The children were not told what research they were involved in, not even after the experiment ended. Jacob Knage Rasmussen says:
It is particularly problematic to have used placed children, as they are a vulnerable group in the custody of the state, who do not immediately have anyone speaking their case.
In Sweden, neighbour country to Denmark, this is so far (29 Dec. 2021) unreported by major media. Instead, reporting about Covid occupies so much of the news here these days.
In Sweden, we can see a very worrying development, where many people have lost confidence in police and judiciary. For example, some shop owners don’t bother to report crime to the police because it usually doesn’t lead anywhere and many journalists have low confidence in the judiciary (all links in this post are to Swedish content). We have also seen how police and judiciary have mishandled cases like Palme and Assange so badly that the authorities are seen as not doing their job properly or are even suspected to be acting in a criminal way. Read also the articles “Palmeutpekande får svidande kritik av JO” and “Ett mordiskt system skapas inför våra ögon”.
While we are in many places of the world now seeing massive disrespect for human rights, loss of democracy, widespread propaganda and preparations for war, there are also scary signs of a development towards devaluation of life. All these components remind us about what happened before WWII.
In Sweden, some have raised concerns over how elderly people are treated, in particular when they have Covid. Geriatrics professor Yngve Gustafson says (link to article in Swedish):
Routinely administering respiratory inhibitors to the elderly with lung infection is active euthanasia, to say the least
It makes you wonder how many have actually died of what might be called euthanasia (despite that active euthanasia is not allowed in Sweden) but have been reported as having died from or with Covid. The Swedish journalist Elisabet Höglund uses words like “killing” (“avlivning”) instead, when she describes this (link to blog post Swedish). It is also very unfortunate that the term “palliative care” is misused for this.
If anyone thinks that lack of resources is a valid excuse for not giving also older Covid patients real care, then remember that the external hospital built with assistance from the military in Stockholm 2020 was dismantled after not having treated a singe patient (link to content in Swedish).
There are also disturbing reports from the UK that patients with mental illness and learning disabilities, including children, were given “do not resuscitate” orders. In at least one case this appears to have led to the patient’s death.
