The speech of Robert Gates shows that the war in Libya is a US initiative

18. June 2011

The war in Libya, north Africa, has taken 15000 lives already. The arabs are very family orientated which means every person is surrounded of at least 50 other family members or relatives. This means, in 3 months of war, about 750 000 people has unnecessarily lost someone they loved.

I very much welcome the lawsuit from 10 members of the US Congress against Obama and his administration.

The lawsuit was signed by Representatives Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Walter Jones (R-NC), Howard Coble (R-NC), John Duncan (R-TN), Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD), John Conyers (D-MI) Ron Paul (R-TX), Michael Capuano (D-MA), Tim Johnson (R-IL) and Dan Burton (R-IN). I thank you of all my heart.

From the very beginning of the Libyen war, the US had the initiative and (probably) the motive. It was too obvious to the newspaper reading public that the US wanted to stay in the background. They let the newspapers get this information.

The NATO base in Cyprus (where the norwegians military jetplanes are stationed), is under US command. I dont know if this information could be of importance. My key to the understanding of the role of the US in this war is the speech of Robert Gates. If the war inititiative came from France or Great Brittain, their foreign ministers would stand up in NATO and ask for more support, but in spite of their need, they never did.

The situation on the battle fields was from the very beginning difficult. To get the war forward, they saw from the very beginning they would need, not only the rebels, but also soldiers and more weapons. But the europeans have had enough wars. The politicians didnt get the needed support from their public. So Germany simply said, no thanks. The rest of NATO (also US) struggled. NATO needed to do more. The foreign ministers of France and England (the closest allies of US in this war) would have asked for it in NATO. If they had done, the rest of Europe would have been very astonished, because we all felt this was a US war. The 10th of June 2011 the father showed up. This is the date of Robert Gates speech to the NATO countries. It was a yell and slamm speech. He predicted almost the end of NATO, because there was no will (he ment from the main european country, Germany) to support the (US) war in Libya. He showed himself as the boss and the man in charge. Thats why i think this war is another US war. I hope my point of view is useful.
