Lawmaker Blasts West's Silence on Recent Violence in Region

Speaking to reporters, Head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said that the US has invested very much in regional countries such as Libya and that is why they have kept mum and adopted a double standard policy. But they will finally have to change their policy, Boroujerdi stated. The Americans are losing their footholds in the region which proves that they are on the verge of collapse and total annihilation, he said. He further said that merciless carnage of protestors in Libya would make people much more infuriated. Dictators in the region have no option but to accept formation of democratic systems in their own countries, he said. Reports indicate that Libyan air force attacked civilian protesters in the capital Tripoli and the country's second largest city of Benghazi. Despite the crackdown, protesters have taken to the streets for the tenth day, calling on Qaddafi to give up power after more than four decades. Meanwhile, several eastern cities have fallen in the hands of protesters 10 days after the revolution that has so far claimed more than 1,000 lives. On Thursday, in the northwestern city of Misrata, protesters tore down Qaddafi's unique "Green Book" monument. Libyans celebrated the liberation of the country's east from the rule of Qaddafi. Protesters set fire to a huge poster of Qaddafi in Zawiya. Latest reports also indicate that hundreds of soldiers have refused to open fire on the pro-democracy protesters. The news comes a day after an amateur video showed the bodies of some 130 soldiers slain because they refused to shoot people.
