While the United States of America, its satellites and the European Union escalate the rhetoric in favor of military intervention and hover like vultures over a moribund animal over Libya, Venezuela has put forward a plan for the creation of an International Peace Commission to find a negotiated political solution to the violent crisis underway in this nation.
This afternoon, Al Jazzera is reporting that Muammar Gaddafi has accepted Chávez’s proposal and the Arab League is considering the plan. This mediation plan will respect both national sovereignty and the Libyan people’s right to self-determination.
The world must say no to another military intervention. No more pillage wars to steal resources. Libya must find a peaceful solution to this conflict. Remember Iraq.
