Senior MP: Western Warships Unable to Stop Popular Uprisings

"The uprisings and revolutions of the regional nations are so powerful that they cannot be controlled by political bargaining and dispatch of warships," Mohammad Javad Arianmanesh told FNA on Sunday.

Arianmanesh reiterated that using force and violence by the West to interfere in the current events in the region will backfire as it would motivate the people to strengthen their uprisings.

"Military invasion would make the people stronger in paving their revolutionary path and I believe that all moves and events in the region will eventually end with the victory of the people," he stated.

Also earlier today, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Politburo Chief, General Yadollah Javani, warned that any attack by the western countries against Libya would deteriorate the conditions and increase the existing problems for the West.

"Attacking Libya even with the permission of the Security Council will be reciprocated by the Libyan people's severe reaction and will double problems of the West," Javani told FNA.

He viewed the present political developments in Libya as a major challenge for the West, and said, "Libya has a special and strategic situation in the Mediterranean Sea and the West is thinking of all options, including military invasion, to bring this country under control."

The US has said it is closely monitoring the situation in Libya and is in constant touch with its allies like NATO on possible actions against the Gaddafi regime, as it dispatched two military aircrafts to the region.

The Pentagon, which has dispatched considerable air and naval assets to the region along with 400 marines, said it is closely monitoring the situation in Libya.

Pentagon Spokesman Col Dave Lapan said the Pentagon is in constant contact with its other allies, including NATO and Europe.

"We are still with options on the table. The overall operation is called Operation Odyssey Dawn," Lapan said.
