Americans Call for Stop to NATO Bombing of Libya

Since March, the US started to using drones to bomb Libya during a UN-mandated “No-Fly” zone there. Protesters here cite reports from the Libyan Health Ministry claiming more than 700 people have been killed and more than 4,000 wounded. The Obama administration says it's carrying out military strikes for humanitarian reasons and save lives-- But protesters here aren't convinced.

A smaller group of counter protesters who agreed that too much bloodshed has occurred in Libya blame leader Moammar Gaddafi.

Although the White House has received some support for the Libya mission, the White House has faced severe criticism over US military action in Libya. President Obama has been rebuked for not seeking congressional approval and opposition to US involvement is facing growing opposition according to recent polls.

Signs that US war policy will change are doubtful. Attempts to cut spending for combat operations in Afghanistan to hasten U.S. troop withdrawals were voted down as were efforts to bar the Pentagon from using funds to enforce the NATO-led no-fly zone over Libya.

To date, the U.S. spends $10 million a day bombing Libya while involved in war in Afghanistan and still occupies Iraq with 47,000 troops. Part of that spending has included 801 strike missions against Libya.
