Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, has said that Gaddafi must leave power “now, without further violence or delay”.
“Gaddafi and those around him must be held accountable for these acts, which violate international legal obligations and common decency,” she said.
“We have seen Colonel Gaddafi’s security forces open fire on peaceful protesters. They have used heavy weapons on unarmed civilians. Mercenaries and thugs have been turned loose to attack demonstrators.”
Clinton said Washington was keeping “all options on the table” in terms of action against the government, and that a no-fly zone was “an option we are actively considering”.
Now, Ms. Clinton, why not send your ships to the shores of Israel where international legal obligations and common decency are being violated by this country of terrorists daily?
Israeli terrorist forces open fire on peaceful Palestinian protesters daily, using heavy weapons on unarmed Palestinian civilians! The Israeli settlers thugs have been turned loose to attack Palestinians.
Calls for no-fly zone?
Mrs. Clinton: Your hypocrisy and two-faced foreign policy is not welcome in Libya.
