Libyan government officials say they have declared a ceasefire. Libyan rebels say the ceasefire is a hoax. The Western military industrial establishment says it will send fighter jets anyway.
The propaganda is already flying in every direction.
The media is repeating totally unsourced stories that Gaddafi is “collecting bodies” of people killed in attacks his forces are still carrying out and that he plans to place them in strategic military locations so he can blame civilian deaths on UN sanctioned air strikes.
Iraqi incubator babies, WMDs, serbian death camps and non existent air strikes spring immediately to mind.
Entire reports are being written, many of them based purely on twitter comments and a Youtube video (below), claiming that while it is claiming to have instigated a ceasefire, the Libyan government is still indiscriminately shelling rebel held areas.
