Belgrade, April 19 2011 (Reuters) - Russia said on Tuesday Western attempts to topple Muammar Gaddafi were a violation of a U.N. resolution on Libya, which only authorised the use of force to protect civilians. "The U.N. Security Council never aimed to topple the Libyan regime," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on a visit to Belgrade. "All those who are currently using the U.N. resolution for that aim are violating the U.N. mandate," he said. (Reporting by Aleksandar Vasovic; Editing by Adam Tanner and Jon Boyle)

"The single thing that we have done wrong and we are striving extremely hard to improve on, is killing innocent civilians," Brig. Richard E. Nugee, the chief spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force, said.
NATO bombs now innocent civilians in Pakistan and Libya.
U.S. and NATO like to present themselves as 'liberators'. But they are killing the people with their weapons of mass destruction and they defend the murderous colonization of Palestine.
