Africa No foreign intervention, Libyans tell West

Libyan pro democracy protesters say they are determined to unseat strongman Muammar Gaddafi without any foreign military intervention, even at the cost of further bloodshed. With world powers weighing options to end Gaddafi's 41 year hardline rule, protesters who overran Benghazi, Libya's second city, hoisted a banner spelling out their message loudly and clearly, "No foreign intervention, Libyan people can do it alone."

The devastating sectarian violence that rocked Iraq in the aftermath of the 2003 US led military intervention, that brought down Saddam Hussein, haunts many Libyans. "The Iraqi example scares everyone in the Arab world," said Abeir Imneina, a professor of political sciences at the university of Benghazi.'

  1. Exactly, no foreign intervention/external interference. I am sure the people can determine their own future without America holding their hands, as usual.

    Yes, over here in the West, there are enough issues to deal with instead poking noses in other people's internal affairs.

    I think USA, most especially, should mind their own business simply because they have enough problems in their own country to be dealing with. Additionally, they only go and make things 10 times worse anyway.

    I agree completely.
