Namibia: Women Say ‘Oil War‘ in Libya Must Stop

Catherine Sasman

29 March 2011

The Namibia National Women’s Organisation (Nanawo) has expressed serious concern over the Libyan situation and condemned attacks on Libya by “some European and American selfish economic expansion forces”.

“It is very sad to note how international organisation fuels the situation through military intervention,” said Nanawo’s chief for information and mobilisation, Eunice Iipinge.

“One should not extinguish fire with fire, particularly the [United Nations] Security Council which is supposed to promote peace and security to all.”

The organisation said it is in support of the African Union (AU) position to deal with the hostility in Libya, and not military intervention.

Nanawo called upon the UN Security Council (UNSC) to “secure peace and put an end to the oil war” in Libya.

Political analyst Phanuel Kaapama last week commented that the UNSC resolution 1973 does not provide a clear roadmap for a resolution of the Libyan crisis.

Dina Rasor, Truthout: “With the DoD budget ballooning again and again over the past 40 years and the news yesterday that we have already spent $600 million in the first week in defending Libya from the air, there appears to finally be some movement to look into what is wrong with our defense spending. We have fired 191 cruise missiles at a cost of $288 million alone ($1.5 million per missile) – just one illustration on how we have spent too much for our weapons, and the Pentagon has admitted that it is unauditable and cannot successfully track most of its procurement money”: here.
