South African President Jacob Zuma called for an immediate cease-fire in Libya and said his government would not support any foreign effort to overthrow the government of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, which has been battling an eastern-based insurgency for the past month. "As South Africa we say no to the killing of civilians, no to the regime-change doctrine and no to the foreign occupation of Libya or any other sovereign state," Zuma said.
Zuma is a part of a five-man presidential panel tasked by the African Union to negotiate in Libya. "We believe that a peaceful and political solution based on the will of the Libyan people will guarantee long-term stability in Libya," he said.

What are your thoughts? Do you think the African continent should have had a chance to sort the problem out by themselves without it being outsourced to the West?
Libya had responded to the UN vote by declaring a cease-fire, but Obama and Cameron brushed that aside. .........At the UN vote, the Indian delegate correctly pointed out that the decision to start the war had been made on the basis of no reliable information whatsoever, since UN Secretary General Ban-ki Moon’s envoy to Libya had never reported to the Security Council.
We are in Libya to secure the oil, not to free any people from a horrid dictator. We care as much for the innocent victims in Libya as we have cared about the innocent people in lraq and Afghanistan. Love Gadhafi or loathe him, lt has suited the west for forty years to have him in power. but like Mubarak the west has decided to get them out and put new puppets in their place. This is ALL about securing the oilfields and the west controlling the countries. The innocent deaths will be called collateral damage as they always are. The arms dealers will coin it in and the taxpayers will pay for the war down to the last bullet. All we have to wait for now is the false flag. Peace starchild.
