The Libyan people opposed any intervention in their country
Before the tension in Libya, United States has led to its base in Greece, some 1,300 marines more. Increasing foreign military presence in the area, evokes concerns among the Libyan population. The voices of protest from local people become increasingly compelling.
However, foreign Nations do not seem to pay much attention to these. The debate on a no-fly zone still continues. And the American ships are sailing not far from the borders of the country high-pitched.
Many believe that most commercial interests can hide behind good intentions. Ahmed, a Libyan earning life in Tunisia, like many of his compatriots doubts that the aid promoted by United States and NATO is uninterested and guided only by the Libyan people’s well-being.
“The Libyan people is opposed to a foreign army from entering the country.” United States comes to Libya not to help the Libyans. The Americans want to gain control of oil and gas. “This is the problem,” said Ahmed. For several days he tried to cross the border to visit their relatives who are on the other side. He knows that some of them are injured and might need help. However, rule out the idea that they are foreign countries which are offered.
The story has enough precedents when humanitarian aid is easily turned into a military intervention. During the war in Bosnia was discovered as the trucks of the UN which should carry food supplies, they were actually carrying military equipment. In Afghanistan the same weapons that United States turned over to the Taliban in the early 1980s turned against the American army during the invasion of 2001. It is one more example of how a boomerang can return and beat anyone who has been released.
The situation in Libya lately remains tense. According to numerous reports, cities go hand in hand. To cope with the growing strength and strength of the opposition, the army which still remains loyal to al – Gaddafi, performed air offensives. Local hospitals strive to meet all the wounded. According to data of international organizations, the number of dead in the clashes, already amounts to about six thousand people.
