African leaders today demanded an immediate end to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's bombing campaign in Libya and called for the African Union and United Nations to take the lead in reaching a political solution.
"We have not voted for a substitute for bombing of one group by the other," South Africa's Foreign Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane told reporters in New York, referring to the UN resolution authorizing military action against Libya leader Muammar Qaddafi's regime, which her government supported. "All forms of military intervention and bombing must stop now."

It's absolutely sickening that a few powerful and rich people can go against the majority of the World to invade basically an entire Continent and then just say that they will decide their fate as they see fit.
How is this even allowed?
The real question I have is for the soldiers doing the invading. Do they not see that they are being used for money, land and resources? Or are they so brainwashed that they actually believe they are justified in killing innocent people for TPTB?

Good. I hope the war in Libya is stopped as it is an illegitimate war. Libya is a sovereign nation and had attacked no one. yet some nations need to push forward with the New World Order and so he has to go. I think the African Union is going to send troops and aid into Libya soon. That's my opinion. The New World Order needs to stop waging wars on nations.

In what way are they “raping it (Libya) for everything they have”?
The AU has very little credibility here, if they want to deal with Africa’s own affairs then they can but in reality they have called on the west to deal with the Congo, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Ivory coast etc while they stand by and do nothing in places like Darfur or Zimbabwe,

And I disagree with the sentiment behind the comment “the African union is asking for control of their OWN CONTINENT”. Libya is closer to Italy than the vast majority of AU members, the effects of Libyan instability or will be felt more by them and other Mediterranean states than most AU nations. This is not just an African problem.
it would only have been a true 'Humanitarian' mission to come to the aid of the people that needed it and were actually asking for help.
Last time i checked, Libya was still on the African continent, no? Agreed that its not just an African problem, but by what rights does the UN/NATO/NWO have to deem themselves supreme controller of another nation?
(and by the I mean CIA/US backed... everyone knows that al-Qaeda is actually a puppet group of the CIA!).
they just needed the right setup to go in and steal the gold and oil
Sorry, you're right... I just group all UN/NATO/NWO together because I don't see much difference between them. They are all neo-colonial groups dedicated to 'protection' through forcible means and bullying...
