Year In Photos: 2011 Uprisings And Protests

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 21, 2011

The day a young fruit-seller, tired of corruption and sick of constant humiliation, set himself ablaze in Tunisia, he also sparked a wave of protests that would rattle countries around the world. In 2011, people on nearly every continent took to the streets to express frustration with their leaders, parties, and ruling regimes. In several cases, 2011’s protests led to revolutionary changes.

In Egypt, thousands of demonstrators in Cairo’s Tahrir Square defied a brutal regime crackdown and toppled longtime leader Hosni Mubarak. The ousted president is currently standing trial in Cairo for corruption and killing protesters, while Egypt is in the midst of its first free and democratic elections.

Libya saw an end to four decades of rule by eccentric Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and his family. In a spectacular game of cat-and-mouse, rebel fighters hunted down Gaddafi as they captured loyalist strongholds city-by city, ultimately killing the colonel and one of his sons near the city of Sirte.

In Yemen, protesters camped out daily in the streets of Sana’a, uncompromisingly demanding the resignation of president Ali Abdullah Saleh. Last month, the president promised to hand over power in a landmark deal. Saleh had ruled Yemen for 33 years.

However, protests in many other parts of the world rage on.

Inspired by the events in Egypt and Libya, Syrian demonstrators hit the streets in March 2011, demanding democratic reforms and political participation. Yet the regime of Bashar Assad has reacted by ordering a brutal crackdown that has left more than 5,000 people dead so far.

In 2011, pro-democracy protesters in Bahrain also were met with brutal violence. Demonstrators and medical professionals who took care of the injured were arrested and persecuted.

Desperately seeking Qaddafi’s brigade of beautiful bodyguards

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 26, 2011

By FARRAG ISMAIL
AL ARABIYA

When the rebels stormed into Muammar Qaddafi’s fortress of Bab al-Aziziya they expected to find more people than just the stalwart leader and his family. But it appears that Qaddafi’s famed bodyguards too have vanished into thin air.

There is no trace of Qaddafi’s female bodyguards, once estimated to be around 400 beautiful women.

The Libyan leader first began to appear with his female guards in the 1990s; his previous guards were from the former East Germany.

According to media reports, in the past 20 years Qaddafi employed as many as 400 “Revolutionary Nuns,” as the female guards came to be known. They were also referred to as “The Amazonians.”

The guards were reported to have taken a vow of chastity before beginning the job of guarding the Libyan leader; in addition, they took a pledge to sacrifice their lives to protect him. The guards also underwent extensive firearm and martial arts training in the Women’s Police Academy in Tripoli. Read the rest of this entry »

Gaddafi’s Forces Strike Rebels In Western Libya

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 6, 2011


The geography of Libya is not like Afghanista­n and the war taking the form of Afghanista­n war. In few months trillion of dollars dumped not in productive job but for destructiv­e. How long this war will go for and what could be the result? Here not only few countries, but NATO involved. This is giving very negative message to the whole world in different ways. Now diplomacy is more important than war. Better to forget egoism to solve the problem. Otherwise this could go for years.

NATO Forces ‘Trying To Kill’ Gaddafi: U.S. Admiral Samuel J. Locklear

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 26, 2011

A top U.S. admiral has confirmed to a U.S. congressman that NATO forces are trying to kill Muammar Gaddafi, and that the need for ground troops in Libya after the embattled leader falls is anticipated.

House Armed Services Committee member Mike Turner (R-OH) reveals to The Cable that U.S. Admiral Samuel J. Locklear, commander of the NATO Joint Operations Command in Naples, Italy, told him last month that NATO forces are actively targeting and trying to kill Gaddafi:

“The U.N. authorization had three components: blockade, no fly zone, and civil protection. And Admiral Locklear explained that the scope of civil protection was being interpreted to permit the removal of the chain of command of Qaddafi’s military, which includes Qaddafi,” Turner said. “He said that currently is the mission as NATO has defined.” Read the rest of this entry »

Nuclear power was developed in the name of establishi­ng peace and now this is threatenin­g the whole human race. Current existing amounts of nuclear power are enough to destroy not a single earth but dozens of equivalent earths. What will happen if the nuclear power will get into terrorists­’ hand? This is today’s one of the biggest concerns for world leaders. : http://ram­kshrestha.­wordpress.­com/2011/0­3/27/overc­oming-new-­decade-cha­llenges/
