The US and other western nations must honor the Libyan rebels'
requests for no military intervention, say Greens


WASHINGTON, DC -- Green Party leaders today warned that western
military intervention, now unfolding with air strikes against Libyan
leader Muammar Gadhafi's forces allegedly to create a no-fly zone,
could escalate into a new US/NATO war on a Muslim nation rather than
the stated goal of humanitarian protection for Libyan civilians and
aid for rebels.

"Libyan rebel leaders have compared their cause to the uprisings in
Tunisia and Egypt and expressed their wish for no military involvement
from other countries.  The resolution of the conflict in Libya should
not be led by foreign powers that have an interest in controlling
Libya's oil -- the largest reserves in Africa.  The military
intervention by the US, UK, and France could easily turn into a
situation like Iraq and Afghanistan, in which US bombs cause
widespread civilian death and destruction," said Romi Elnagar, a
member of the Louisiana Green Party and a member of the party's
International Committee .

The new Libyan Interim National Transitional Council in Benghazi
issued a decree on March 5 stating "we request from the international
community to fulfill its obligations to protect the Libyan people from
any further genocide and crimes against humanity without any direct
military intervention on Libyan soil."
(http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-03-08/libyan-rebels-appeal-to-un-for-protection-formal-recognition.html)

Human rights lawyer Abdel-Hafidh Ghoga, spokesman for the National
Transitional Council, said, "We are against any foreign intervention
or military intervention in our internal affairs... This revolution
will be completed by our people with the liberation of the rest of
Libyan ­territory."

Greens said that the intervention could quickly backfire and incite
regional outrage against the US.  According to the Washington Post,
"The Arab League secretary general, Amr Moussa, deplored the broad
scope of the US-European bombing campaign in Libya on Sunday and said
he would call a new league meeting to reconsider Arab approval of the
Western military intervention....  'What is happening in Libya differs
from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone,' he said in a statement on the
official Middle East News Agency. 'And what we want is the protection
of civilians and not the shelling of more civilians.'"
(http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/arab-league-condemns-broad-bombing-campaign-in-libya/2011/03/20/AB1pSg1_story.html).

"The conflict in Libya is a civil war -- a rebellion against a violent
regime.  We question whether the enthusiasm among western leaders for
a military assault on Gadhafi's forces, including calls for a ground
invasion by some Republicans in the US
(http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/03/20/bill-kristol-calls-for-u-s-ground-forces-in-libya/),
is motivated by humanitarian concerns or by an oil grab.  Not content
with escalating the Afghanistan War and expanding it into Pakistan,
President Obama might get his very own war-without-end if he acts
without regard for the wishes, views, and needs of people in north
Africa," said Farheen Hakeem, co-chair of the Green Party of the
United States.

The Green Party has supported movements for democracy throughout the
Middle East and Africa and their efforts to remove violently
repressive and corrupt dictators like Muammar Gadhafi.  But Green
leaders insisted that the imposition of a no-fly zone by foreign
attack is an illegitimate intervention in a civil war that Libyans
have the right to resolve without interference from western powers for
whom humanitarian claims have been cover for economic and geopolitical
domination.

Greens noted that the US offered no such assistance during the
Algerian Civil War of the 1990s (in which the US encouraged a military
takeover after Islamists won the election, precipitating a civil war
that cost between 150,000 and 200,000 lives) or the Congo War, which
alone killed 4 million people (1998-2003), the bloodiest conflict
since World War II.

"Greens remain skeptical of US intentions, noting the selective
attention to the suffering of civilians resisting repressive
governments in the Middle East.  Why no intervention when US
client-state Bahrain recently slaughtered its opposition?  Even more
shockingly, the US supported Israel's air and ground assault on
illegally occupied Gaza in 2008 and 2009, in which over 1400
Palestinians, mostly civilians, were killed in contrast to 13
Israelis, 10 of whom were soldiers.  The history of US failure to
protect civilians from avoidable mass killings in the Middle East
should give every thinking person pause," said Muhammed Malik,
co-chair of the Miami-Dade Green Party
 and a member of the Green Party's
International Committee.

Mr. Malik helped organize a rally at the Federal Courthouse in Ft.
Lauderdale on Feb. 26 against US military intervention in Libya. This
summer, he will address the dangers of military intervention at a
forum, entitled "Self-Determination: Opportunities and Challenges" at
Florida International University.
