submit to reddit

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO, is holding an extraordinary session on Friday to discuss the situation in Libya, amid reports of a possible military intervention in the Arab country.

The Secretary General of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, made the announcement yesterday in Budapest, where he was meeting with the ministers of defense of the European Union.

Normally, the NATO Council would call a meeting among the permanent representatives of the 21-member military defense organization.

The High Representative of the European Union, Catherine Ashton, said that NATO would consider the imposition of a “no-fly zone” over Tripoli and increased sanctions against the Libyan government.

    As much as I think Gadaffi needs to go, this is not the job of NATO. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is a defensive organization by mandate. As far as I know, Libya has not attacked any NATO members, therefore NATO has no place in Libya.
