nato and their death squad allies ('rebels') lies: 4,000 killed is a bit different to "50,000"
One fundamental rule that people often forget is that imperialism and its allies lie all the time, and they promote big lies in big ways all the time.
So now years after the destruction they have wrought on the best country in Africa in terms of social indicators on many levels - Libya - the imperialists and their proxies are starting to admit the nonsense that they were always peddling.
From the lies of 50,000 killed in the nato death squad putsch against the Libyan Jamahirya, they now admit in public that a fraction of that number were killed - 4,700 - with just over 2,000 still missing. Five or six thousand is a big difference from 50,000.
As for those who were killed by nato and their death squad proxies on the ground: no figures whatsoever. In actual fact well over 50,000 Libyan people only in the armed forces were killed by nato, and many more by their death squads and other civilians killed by nato bombing.
Of course the author of the article below from the british white power structure media - ian white - was a rabid foam-at-the-mouth liberal champion of the nato destruction and mass murder in Libya at the time. Like a typical euro white man, he has no shame or self reflection about the lies he spewed out, lies which so many non-white people infected by a profound sense of inferiority complex in relation to the white man and its miltiary machine - nato - also spewed out and cannot bring themselves to admit that they were utter fools and tools of the imperialists.

Libya's new government has drastically reduced its estimate of the number of people who were killed in the revolution against Muammar Gaddafi's regime, concluding that 4,700 rebel supporters died and 2,100 are missing, with unconfirmed similar casualty figures on the opposing side.
Initially rebel officials believed that some 50,000 people had been killed, a figure that was revised down to 25,000 dead and 4,000 missing in October 2011. The latest statistics have been compiled after research by the ministry, though they do not include the final figure for fatalities on the Gaddafi side.
