NATO Prolongs Actions in Libya

Libya hasn’t seen the last of NATO.

The constant bombardment of Qaddafi’s assets in Libya by NATO is to continue. NATO has extended its operations for another 90 days. In the words of its Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, “We are determined to continue our operation to protect the people of Libya.” The decision was reached after a meeting of all the NATO countries.

The ascertaining of a no-fly zone as well as employment of air power for the defense of citizens was made a reality. This is a clear signal to Libya’s dictator that no abuse of authority will be tolerated anymore. There is also talk of an arms embargo which is for an unlimited period of time.
