Libia sub atac!

Iata ce spune BBC:

Coalition launches Libya attacks

In articol se arata printre altele:

„The UK, the US and France have begun attacking Libya as enforcement of the UN-mandated no-fly zone gets under way.

Pentagon officials say the US and the UK have fired more than 110 missiles.

Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi has said he will open arms depots to the people and the interests of Mediterranean countries will be in danger from now on.

Western planes bombed targets in the capital, Tripoli, said the AFP news agency, quoting witnesses and state TV.

Earlier on Saturday, pro-Gaddafi forces attacked the rebel stronghold of Benghazi despite declaring a ceasefire a day earlier.

A French plane fired the first shots against Libyan government targets at 1645 GMT, destroying a number of military vehicles, according to a military spokesman.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed that British planes are in action over Libya.

US President Barack Obama, speaking during a visit to Brazil, said the US was taking „limited military action” as part of a „broad coalition”.

„We cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people there will be no mercy,” he said.

He repeated that no US ground troops would take part.

Shortly after the bombing started, a Libyan official went on TV to denounce the „barbarian aggression”.

Col Gaddafi himself made a brief speech on Libyan radio, calling on people to resist.”

U.S. Missiles Strike Libyan Air-Defense Targets

„President Obama, speaking during a visit to Brazil, reiterated promises that no American ground forces would be used. “I am deeply aware of the risks of any military action, no matter what limits we place on it,” he said. “I want the American people to know that the use of force is not our first choice, and it’s not a choice that I make lightly. But we can’t stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people that there will be no mercy.” „

„There are political risks, though. One widely held concern is the possibility of a divided Libya with no clear authority, opening the door for Islamic extremists to begin operating in a country that had formerly been closed to them. And while the cooperative military mission was clear punitive measure against Mr. Qaddafi’s attacks on the Libyan opposition, there have been few penalties so far for allied Arab governments in Bahrain and Yemen that have violently cracked down on their own protest movements. „

„Admiral Gortney cast the United States as the “leading edge” among coalition partners in the opening phase of attacks on Libya. But in keeping with Mr. Obama’s and Mrs. Clinton’s emphasis that the administration was not driving the efforts to strike Libya, he and other Pentagon officials repeated that the United States would step back within days and hand command of the coalition to one of European allies.

The United States has at least 11 warships stationed near the coast of Tripoli, including three ballistic missile submarines — the Scranton, the Florida and the Providence — and two destroyers, the Stout and Barry. All five fired cruise missiles on Saturday, the admiral said. Other coalition ships in the Mediterranean included 11 Italian ships, one French ship, one British ship and one Canadian ship.

Earlier Saturday, Colonel Qaddafi issued letters warning Mr. Obama and other leaders not to use military force against him.

The tone of the letters — one addressed to Mr. Obama and a second to Mr. Sarkozy, Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain and Secretary General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations — suggested that Colonel Qaddafi was leaving himself little room to back down.

“Libya is not yours. Libya is for all Libyans,” he wrote in one letter, read to the news media by a spokesman. “This is injustice, it is clear aggression, and it is uncalculated risk for its consequences on the Mediterranean and Europe.

“You will regret it if you take a step toward intervening in our internal affairs.”

Colonel Qaddafi addressed President Obama as “our son,” in a letter that combined pleas with a jarring familiarity. “I have said to you before that even if Libya and the United States enter into war, God forbid, you will always remain my son and I have all the love for you as a son, and I do not want your image to change with me,” he wrote. “We are confronting Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, nothing more. What would you do if you found them controlling American cities with the power of weapons? Tell me how would you behave so that I could follow your example?””

Berlin face à ses responsabilités internationales

Iata ce arata printre altele:

„Au-delà de ces explications conjoncturelles, la prudence allemande relève d’un triple traumatisme. La catastrophe nucléaire au Japon ravive la phobie de l’atome outre-Rhin, dans un pays marqué par les combats des écologistes et convaincu, depuis les catastrophes du XXe siècle, que la science n’est pas forcément synonyme de progrès.

Le pacifisme allemand constitue également un puissant frein à tout engagement extérieur. Il a fallu le massacre de Srebrenica pour que le débat moral sur l’intervention hors de l’Allemagne soit posé, la guerre au Kosovo en 1999 pour que les Allemands fassent de nouveau la guerre hors de leurs frontières, et les attentats du 11 septembre 2001 pour que plusieurs milliers de soldats allemands soient envoyés en Afghanistan, dans le cadre de la coalition internationale. Dès 2003 cependant, le conflit en Irak a montré que Berlin entend le moins possible faire la guerre et y consacrer les efforts nécessaires.

Enfin, les crises de l’euro ont conduit l’Allemagne à faire ce qu’on lui avait juré qu’elle n’aurait jamais à faire : voler au secours des pays européens, mettre en danger la stabilité de sa monnaie, dans un pays qui a connu la ruine financière en 1923 et en 1945, avant de subir le choc de la réunification dans les années 1990.

Il reste que le non-engagement allemand dans l’affaire libyenne est révélateur d’une hésitation qui peut être perçue par les partenaires de la République fédérale comme un manque de solidarité, voire de maturité. L’économie allemande est florissante, sa population est moins frappée que les autres par le chômage, ses entreprises sont à l’offensive sur toute la planète. Mais il ne peut y avoir, d’un côté, la „mondialisation heureuse” pour Deutschland AG et ses salariés, et de l’autre une „mondialisation dangereuse” gérée par ses alliés et dont Berlin ne s’estimerait pas comptable.” (subl.mea)
