NATO started discussing an “intervention” in Libya

Belgium, February 25, 2011

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization met in Brussels to start discussing seriously the possibility of “intervening” in Libya due to the internal conflicts it suffers. Opinions are divided and much time would pass before a concrete action.

The 28 members of the NATO, among which are the United States, the United Kingdom and France, met today in its seat located in Brussels, Belgium, and issued the following statement: “The Alliance will continue to realize polls in order to be prepared to any eventuality.

Several members of the organism oppose an invasion considering it would be counterproductive, but other push the accelerator to end the conflicts.

The arguments focus on the possibility of rescuing the 3.400 European citizens who live in Libya; although others suggest that the real interest is that country’s oil.

Meanwhile, Secretary General of the Alliance Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that it is “too soon” to start talking about any intervention and reminded that it would require the support of the UN.
