Human Rights Watch: Another imperialist tool to mislead the public opinion
HRW owes its legitimacy to corrupt mainstream media.
Most of the people think that Human Rights Watch (HWR) is a non-profit, 100% independent organization. They also believe that its aim is to defend and protect HUMANS. We mostly hear about this organization in war times.
But the name of this organization is misleading! "Human Rights Watch." Really?
A brief recap on HRW's recent inglorious background
Their mission statement says the following: "Human Rights Watch is dedicated to protecting the human rights of people around the world. We stand with victims and activists to prevent discrimination, to uphold political freedom, to protect people from inhumane conduct in wartime, and to bring offenders to justice. We investigate and expose human rights violations and hold abusers accountable. We challenge governments and those who hold power to end abusive practices and respect international human rights law. We enlist the public and the international community to support the cause of human rights for all."
They claim that they stand with the victims. Who are the victims they stand with? In an excellent article Jonathan Aziziah explains the role this organization has played in Iraq, and how it helped the Oil giants and corrupt politicians in justifying the Gulf War; by providing fake reports and by deliberately spreading wrong information. He also explains how this organization recently played a roll in justifying a possible future western intervention in Syria. In another article, he exposes the organization's background and links with pro-zionist, eugenic theory supporters, and with Mahmoud Jibril's main funder, George Soros. Aziziah also reminds us of the role HWR played in spreading the Abu Salim hoax. We now know for sure that Abu Salim's mainstream media story was absolutely false and served to demonize Muammar Gaddafi.
The only thing that could be found in Abu Salim prison were camel bones.
How HRW misleads public opinion
After 7 months of destruction in Libya, and tens of thousands of innocent civilians dead under NATO missiles often full of depleted uranium, HRW comes up with an article warning of "Arbitrary arrests and Abuse of detainees". Who are they kidding? Where are their reports on residential areas being bombed by NATO? Where are their reports on the use of depleted uranium against the civilian population? Where are their reports on NATO killing thousand of civilians during the carpet-bombing of entire cities? Where are their reports on the ethnic cleansing of Black Africans? (Massive information can be found on Black Africans being persecuted and lynched by the rebels e.g. here). We, at CounterPsyOps, couldn't find any of those reports... Why doesn't HRW file a lawsuit against Cameron, Sarkozy, Obama and other rulers who actively participated in the destruction of Libya ?
In its mission statement, HRW states "we investigate human rights violation an hold abusers accountable." If this was really the case, the organization would stand up against ALL abuses on human rights. Even those committed by the Western world.
Furthermore, we now have some reports filtering in mainstream media, talking about how some non-governmental organizations (NGOs) worry about the humanitarian crisis in Sirte and Beni Walid. Beware of the words being used. HUMANITARIAN CRISIS has been ongoing since day 1. Humanitarian crisis happens when bombs fall from the sky on innocent civilians. By talking of humanitarian crisis ONLY about Sirte and Beni Walid, mainstream media make a very "smart" move trying to make all the rest of the atrocities committed appear as minor facts.
As in all other war zones, mainstream media, HRW and other deceitful NGOs talk about "Humanitarian Crisis" only when there are power shortages, food shortages, lack of water, etc. These are only a few elements of what HUMANITARIAN CRISIS really is!
In the pursuit of legitimacy: belated and useless indictments
I already know what some people will reply to me. HRW is totally independent and has no link with politics, because they once said that George Bush should be prosecuted over torture. Indeed, they have said that. But when did they say that? In 2011 !
The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq started 10 years prior that and reports exposing torture by independent journalists and analysts have been available since then. Did it HRW really take 10 years to notice what was really going on in Afghanistan and Iraq? In 2011, Bush was already out of office. What can be done against him now? Not much anymore.
Plus, HRW talks about prosecuting him over "torture". What about "Crimes against Humanity"? This would make more sense when you know that more than a million and a half civilians died, that depleted uranium was used against civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq (see the effects of it on Afghans and Iraqis new-born babies) along with cluster bombs and white phosphorus, that civil infrastructure and buildings (roads, schools, hospitals) have been destructed - fact is that those two countries have been brought back to stone age...
This is just another proof of whose interests HRW really serves, under the guise of defending and protecting the "victims".
Let me repeat my question: which victims does HRW stand with? They stand with fake victims. They actually stand with the criminals and help them justifying the use of bombs and heavy artillery to destroy sovereign nations and kill innocent people.
HRW owes its legitimacy to corrupt mainstream media. Those who are willing to investigate a bit further than what they're being told, can easily understand whose interests this organization serves.
