Gaddafi is facing international pressure now that the UN has authorized a No Fly Zone and all military action against Libya. While the U.S. and other European countries are focusing on attacking Libya, let’s us be clear what the main mission in Libya is. I am against Gaddafi attacking and killing his own people but he is not the only one that is doing it. It is happening in Bahrain, Yemen, Ivory Coast, Algeria, etc. Why is the U.S. and the U.N. putting too much attention on Libya? Why have they not condemned the massacres that is going on in Yemen, Ivory Coast and other countries? Why hasn’t the U.S. or U.N. putting pressure in Bahrain? The people in Bahrain are going through some a lot as well as their Libyan brothers. When Mubarak supporters were firing shots and tear gas at the Egyptian protesters, the U.S. stayed quiet. Even after the tear gas was made in the U.S. It is quite clear that the U.S. continues to be a hypocrite when it comes to domestic and international issues.
The interest of the international community to attack Libya has to do with Libya’s oil and Gaddafi’s anti-western rhetoric. It is interesting that the U.N. continues to be a puppet institution to U.S. policies. I haven’t heard the U.N. adopt a resolution for peaceful troops to go to Japan and helping out the earthquake and tsunami victims.
Any type of foreign occupation disguised under foreign intervention will make Libya a haven for Jihadist and make Libyans rebel against occupation forces. The U.S. cannot continue to occupy countries in the name of “democracy” and taking over countries natural resources as “compensation” for “bringing freedom.” That blue print didn’t work in Iraq and it won’t work in Libya.
If the U.S. is concerned about Libya, they should also put pressure on Bahrain, Yemen, Ivory Coast and other countries where they are shooting at peaceful demonstrators. By only focusing on Libya and ignoring the other countries, it clearly demonstrates the political ambitions that the U.S. and its allies have in Libya.
