    US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, is pleading with members of African Union (AU) to DEMAND that Muammar Gaddafi step down from power. Somehow, the US does not understand that the AU has no power to demand or make impositions upon any African nation, just as is (or is supposed to be) the case with the UN. The AU is simply an organization geared towards defending Africa's common interest and promoting peace and security in Africa, and as with UN, the AU depends upon member nations for implementation of laws or recommendations.

    When the African Union (AU) months ago, after it stupidly signed Gaddafi's death warrant by unsuspectingly supporting absurd assault of Gaddafi and Libya, proposed resolution to the Libyan crisis, the US, UN, NATO and Libyan rebels all declined. And just before the outrageous bombings in Libya began months ago, Gaddafi humbly ran to AU for joint proposed resolution, but the US, UN and NATO still would not have it.

    The situation in Libya probably would not have deteriorated to its present stage had the US, UN and NATO not gone into Libya for a regime change not a part of directive of UN Resolution 1973 they hid under! And after hundreds of lives unnecessarily lost, the US now begs Africans to DEMAND Gaddafi step down - allAfrica.com: Libya: Clinton Presses Africans to Demand Gaddafi Quit

    There is no doubt that previous dealings with African dim-wits has led to the erroneous assumption that Africans can always be easily pushed around. Well, Muammar Gaddafi is pure, untainted African material and not the slave of any Western bully. And with all the poundings and misfortune brought about by this absurd assault upon Libya and Gaddafi, it is the assailants that cringe - allAfrica.com: Libya: Nato the First to Blink As Defiant Gaddafi Steps Up War of Nerves

    Members of the AU, like members of the UN, can only make suggestion or attempt to persuade another nation. But using the word DEMAND implies authoritatively or peremptorily. And remember that US secretary of State Hillary Clinton is an attorney. Thus, Clinton has either lost it or is hinting a peremptory strike on Libya.

    US, UN, NATO and their allies are all besides themselves! NATO for the first time is admitting unnecessary bombings and killings of Libyan civilians because it has been seriously maimed by Gaddafi and has run out of lame excuses for its atrocious acts - NATO admits killing civilians in Libya - English pravda.ru
