Libyan war not popular in polls

Wednesday 04 May 2011

Most people in the countries leading the bombing campaign in Libya are opposed to the legally dubious military intervention, according to the results of a Financial Times survey published today.

Some 37 per cent of US respondents said they were opposed to Washington’s involvement in Libya‘s internal affairs, while just 32 per cent said they were in favour.

In Italy, 49 per cent were opposed, while only 29 per cent supported intervention.

Germans were 39 per cent against and 34 per cent in favour, while Britons were 37 per cent for and 36 per cent against.

Some 40 per cent of French respondents said they were for the military campaign, which is ostensibly designed to save civilian lives, while 31 per cent said they were opposed.

“Spain also saw a narrow plurality in favour of the military campaign,” according to the FT.

The FT/Harris online poll of 6,241 adults in six countries was conducted between March 30 and April 4 – before the April 30 bombing raid on a house in Tripoli that killed Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi’s second youngest son and three grandchildren under 12.

That attack appeared to confirm the international community’s fears that Nato is increasingly ignoring the terms of the UN security council mandate authorising the “humanitarian intervention” in Libya.

A more recent Ipsos poll found that a whopping 76 per cent of Italians were opposed to meddling in the Libyan conflict, with only 19 per cent expressing support.

These humanitarians come to Libya with missiles, and an agenda: here.

Peter Dale Scott, Japan Focus: “The present NATO campaign against Gaddafi in Libya has given rise to great confusion, both among those waging this ineffective campaign, and among those observing it… My own take on this war, on the other hand, is that it is both ill-conceived and dangerous – a threat to the interests of Libyans, Americans, the Middle East and conceivably the entire world. Beneath the professed concern about the safety of Libyan civilians lies a deeper concern that is barely acknowledged: the West’s defense of the present global petrodollar economy, now in decline”: here.
