South Africa called on The Hague to investigate a NATO operation in Libya

South Africa called on The Hague to investigate a NATO operation in LibyaSouth Africa called on the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague to investigate violations of human rights committed during the North Atlantic Alliance operation in Libya. At the same time, the country's leaders doubt that the Tribunal is capable of taking action against NATO.


South African Vice-President Kgalema Motlante, speaking before the parliament, noted that he did not doubt the fact of crimes. "Question" called the politician the willingness of the Hague to investigate the activities of NATO, BBC reports.

South Africa acted as an ally of Muammar Gaddafi during the Libyan crisis. The authorities condemned the initiation of a criminal case against the colonel by the International Tribunal. The head of state, Jacob Zuma, rejected UN demands to transfer Gadhafi’s assets in South Africa to the rebels. According to the South African ambassador, such a move would mean funding the rebels, which requires recognition from South Africa.

Zuma holds the chair of the African Union. During the Libyan crisis, the African Union advocated negotiations between Muammar Gaddafi and the rebels. On the eve, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke highly of the Zuma plan. According to the official, only the uncompromising position of NATO made negotiations impossible.

    Finally. This should have been done for a long time ... Finally, South Africa supported Gaddafi, although it is probably too late. Ours have long said that the issue with Gaddafi should be decided by local states, and not Europe and the United States, to climb into other people's possessions.

      In fact, Gaddafi himself didn’t give up to anyone, many countries of the second world are frightened by the very attitude to the issue of the countries of the first world. The rules cease to exist, this causes a fright to all countries that do not possess nuclear weapons or have not become political satellites of the powerful, and the latter also cannot be calm, to be a favorite of the queen - the position is always temporary.

        Most likely yes, Gaddafi as a person is hardly needed in South Africa, but there must be at least some solidarity, at least you are with me, I am with you ...
        But strained, now it will be not only the one who does not have nuclear weapons ...
        After all, you won’t apply it in your country, and the main actions will be carried out there, like the revolution in Libya. And to bomb all those involved in a nuclear winter ...

          Well, actually nuclear weapons can not be loaded into bombs and missiles at all, it should just be. For countries such as the United States, Russia and EU countries, the very fact that nuclear weapons will fall into the hands of anyone other than the authorities causes fear worse than launching a missile with a nuclear warhead. Nobody wants to rock such countries from the outside, and if they rocked from the inside, then they themselves are to blame. Everyone understands that any country of Kotoyar used the first nuclear weapons even against the aggressor automatically lose karma minus 100, no one will stand up for it.

          Quite right, the West chose a good strategy for itself, to conduct hostilities posing as a follower, although it is they who play the main violin and their hands to their elbow in blood.

      Libya is much closer to Europe than to South Africa and the influence of the mess in Libya is felt in Italy millions of times stronger than in South Africa. Why doesn't South Africa investigate the persecution of white citizens at home in the last 15 years?

    Yeah, wait. So I see Sarkozy, Berlusconi, Obama and the rest of the shelupon in the cage.
    But the fact that such insights went is good.
    War 08.08.08. also was full of lies, then the world figured out, I think, and then the truth will come out.

      I'm afraid the 080808 war is not so simple. Someone on the site said that according to Echo of Moscow polls, the majority approve of Saakashvili. Registered there, voted. The results have surfaced, indeed - most of us condemn. It is understandable, the echo of Moscow sounds from abroad, and the polls are probably fake, but that means they are still fighting, and we have calmed down ... We should have raised this topic on the site again.

        Indeed, the Echo of Moscow has a specific audience. On the whole, in Russia, the truth about this conflict does not interest anyone at all, like a thousand other truths. On this subject I met several discussions of military analysts, impartial, but to read it all was very difficult due to the noise of patriots of all stripes and trends.
        Oh, how I would like to get to a resource where there are no these youngsters soul and / or body.

        There is such a point that the results of the survey govern public opinion. If you are informed that the majority of the inhabitants of our great country would, for example, give the West to the EU countries and Siberia to China, you would not believe?

        This and that, don’t "get fooled" by different nonsense, I agree with the figs, and I think that from this radio it clearly smells like shit.

        I don’t see the point, it’s a pity that you can’t make a closed topic, in another scenario I’ll probably not participate, I certainly don’t think that will upset many, but this is my position.

      I put it wrong, it was people who most likely posed as analysts but were also military.
      - AND LET THE PATRIOTS WILL BE MORE THAN BETTER THAN INDIVIDUAL !!! -
      It’s boring for me to talk to them, it’s fun to drink vodka with them. Better they were more in life and not on the forums. And then I talked with one patriot of Russia, I’m ready to declare war on everything in America, dismember Ukraine, bend the Poles. Only the major of the Russian police himself drives a new Lexus.

          Yes, at any socio-political forum of Ukraine in general, any topic ends there. However, depending on what you mean by "BENDER". When one stupid Natsik argues with another stupid Natsik, then this is not a dispute, but a set of mutual insults and hackneyed theses. And to argue with an intelligent person Natsik generally worthless.

          if I hate to type in yandeks ... you will find a site where everyone hates everyone and covers up with the last words. on Georgia Time website - you can read Georgian comments, too ((((((((. There are plenty of sites like this ... just go there - you’ll get so much negativity. Echo of Moscow - similarly. I go sometimes ... peep)).
          It is useless to argue with them, I think they will sprinkle with saliva, if one at a time, but if you poke fun and jump into their site at the crowd, you can have fun ...
          Only - is it necessary?
