Arab League condemns broad bombing campaign in Libya

CAIRO—The Arab League secretary general, Amr Moussa, deplored the broad scope of the U.S.-European bombing campaign in Libya and said Sunday that he would call a league meeting to reconsider Arab approval of the Western military intervention.

Moussa said the Arab League’s approval of a no-fly zone on March 12 was based on a desire to prevent Moammar Gaddafi’s air force from attacking civilians and was not designed to endorse the intense bombing and missile attacks — including on Tripoli, the capital, and on Libyan ground forces — whose images have filled Arab television screens for two days.

“What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone,” he said in a statement on the official Middle East News Agency. “And what we want is the protection of civilians and not the shelling of more civilians.”

Moussa’s declaration suggested that some

    • You don't understand. The arab league JUMPED at the first chance to avoid sending their own loyal subjects out of their respected fiefdoms. Now they can breath a sigh of relief,
      BASH the crusader west, have their population agree and chant "death to america" while distracting them from their own problems with their own overlords.

    • Exactly, again. Everyone knows the US is there only because of NATO obligations. France knows this too, otherwise they wouldn't even risk going against a 4th-world loser like Kadummy.

      What the hell is this "Arab League" anyway? What do they do? What have they ever done? Why should anyone care what they say? What are they - some 14-year-old guys who have an internet connection?

      Who cares? Shoot them, dust to dust, the world will be a better place.

    • Two faced. Okay how's this, the Libya civilians rise up against their leader and he starts killing them. The west doesn't like the killings so a no fly zone is enforced. In Bahrain the civilians rise up and the Saudi government declares all protest in their country illegal and sends their troops into Bahrain to slaughter those protesters. And the west says nothing. I'm not taken any political sides, just pointing out the hypocrisy. And that makes me wonder, when the American population raises up More..

  • Like I posted before
    We should keep out of this
    Its an internal affair
    Only a few days and the Muslims are already complaining that we are killing them
    Let them kill each other.
    Its better that they complain theat we arent helping them than having them strap bombs on and try and blow up innocent civillians in retalliation
    There has never been a single succesful example of the wests involvement in the middle east.
    It just spurs the neanderthals on to have another reason to hate us More..

    Day two: "Infidel crusaders go home!"

    I admit it was stupid of the US to get involved in this shit storm, but this flip flopping Arab League is just as culpable as those sending in the bombs and missiles. Were they expecting the west to go in there and drop daisies and daffodils?

    • If all your doing in enforcing a no-fly zone is to make sure there are no fighter aircraft flying sorties than there shouldn't be any civilian casualties. But if your only using the no-fly zone as a pretext to help overthrow the Libyan government by attacking pro-government ground targets than that's another matter.

    • obama said wants ghadaffy to give up half the country., vacate his military or he'll lay waste to it;
      http://english.aljazeera.net/news/africa/2011/03/2011320202616794816.html

      8:27pm Obama says that Gaddafi has lost the legitimacy to lead his people, and asserts that he must comply with the conditions set in the UN resolution. He says that Gaddafi must withdraw forces from Ajdabiyah, Misurata, Az Zawiyah and stop an advance on Benghazi, and must also restore water and power to all cities.
