UN Security Council approved a resolution on Libya

The multipolar world means more «global policecount(r)y» ?

So… the United Nations Security Council approved a resolution Thursday evening that would establish a no-fly zone over Libya, and would authorize the use of air strikes against forces loyal to Colonel Muammar Qaddafi.

But… U.N. did not specify when the air patrols over Libyan airspace would begin, or which country would take the lead, but there are several reports that British and French warplanes could strike pro-government positions as soon as Friday. Jubilant Libyan rebels in Benghazi erupted with fireworks and gunfire after the U.N. vote Thursday evening (changing the masters means the joy of fools!!! :)) ).

The council’s resolution, approved yesterday 10-0 with five abstentions (Brazil, China, Russia, India and Germany), allows the U.S., the U.K., France and Arab nations to “take all necessary measures” to protect civilians. It excludes “a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory”. So… NATO can  to attack ground targets from air. Of course, we have an excellent memory and remember that in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq also with air strikes began the war. 😀

According to the White House, President Barack Obama spoke with Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom and President Nicolas Sarkozy of France about coordinating their actions to enforce the resolution passed  Thursday on Libya. In change, Guido Westerwelle, Germany’s Foreign Minister said Friday that German troops will not participate in any military action in Libya. “We believe that those who voted for military intervention have good motives, but looking at the risks not just in Libya but for the whole region, we have decided that German troops will not participate in military action,” he said. China also expressed reservations Friday about some aspects of the Security Council resolution. “We oppose the use of armed force in international relations and we have serious reservations about some of the content of the resolution” said Jiang Yu, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According Bloomberg, “oil surged in New York after the United Nations Security Council voted to ground Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi ’s air force as continuing unrest in the region renewed concerns the turmoil may spread and disrupt supply”.

Update: Saturday, 19 March

World leaders met Saturday in a summit in Paris that could be the final step before immediate international military action against Moammar Gadhafi’s forces in Libya. The meeting of 22 leaders hosted by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, including British Prime Minister David Cameron and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, took full shape only shortly before it was to begin. The African Union was not attending, as had previously been expected, but the Iraqi foreign minister was among those announced as late participants.

Meanwhile, the offensive continued on diplomatic front. Barack Obama met with President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff. US Defense Secretary Robert Gates departs for Russia on Saturday for talks expected to touch on turmoil in the Middle East, the Afghanistan war and plans for missile defense, officials said. Gates was due to visit cultural landmarks in Saint Petersburg and address junior military officers on Sunday and Monday before meeting his Russian counterpart, Russian counterpart, Anatoly Serdyukov, and President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow on Tuesday. While previous trips to Russia had been dominated by disputes over a planned US missile defense shield in Europe, this visit would cover a broader range of issues and reflected deepening military ties between the two countries, US officials said. Noticed that Brazil and Russia abstained from voting on resolution. Update: According AFP, Gates pushed back his departure to Sunday, a day later than planned, to remain in Washington and keep tabs on the developing situation in Libya, where the U.S. and its allies began military operations to enforce a U.N. no-fly zone.

The game of demonical and the bill for vote in the UN Security Council

Игра демонический, и этот законопроект ….

U.S. administration set up new unilateral sanctions against Rosoboronexport – the state of Russia specialized in arms exports. The reason invoked – military cooperation with Iran. In reply, Russian arms exporter denounced the “unfair competition” from the American side, and subsequently reiterated idea of Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. And Dmitri Medvedev. That the decision of the U.S. has considered some economic calculations is, I think, truthful. But competition has not been the central reason, as suggested by the Russian authorities. Let us look at least:
According to EDF, sales of U.S. arms increased by 50% last year (ie 24.7 billion dollars in 2007 and over 32 billion dollars in the last two years).
In addition to Rosoboronexport, the blacklist included, in addition, three companies from China, two of North Korea, two from Sudan and one from Venezuela, South Korea, United Arab Emirates and Syria. All of them are incriminates providing sensitive technologies likely to contribute to the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction or the means of transportation, including nuclear weapons or ballistic missiles. We’ll notice here that the listed countries, beyond the relationship they have with Iran, have good bilateral relations with Russia. Syria, United Arab Emirates, North Korea and China are obviously more recently courted countries of America. And the heads of these countries met earlier with President Medvedev.
In fact, the sanctions mean that any department of the U.S. Government shall prohibit any kind of cooperation with companies from the blacklist – contacts, purchase or service – and penalized companies will not buy U.S. weapons or components, not enjoying any of U.S. services in the field. I mean low economic impact, impact absolute of the image in demonical game by the media.
The penalties were adopted by the U.S. against Rosoboronexport and other companies in the countries listed since August 12 this year, but they only came into force on October 16, for a period of two years. The notice on the establishment of the embargo has been done but only on Thursday, October 23, after the publication of the decision by the State Department in the Federal Register. It mean they were taken decision following the refusal of Russia in the UN Security Council to support new sanctions against Iran. But public announcement comes against the backdrop of financial crisis and economic increasingly emphasized in Europe, and President Medvedev announced that Russia will present its own plan to minimize its effects. Let us not forget that according to Bloomberg, rubla has appreciated against U.S. dollars exchange rates of euro-Russian central bank, and shares of market exchange and economic ties were revived after the central bank has failed to take curb speculation in those who claimed irreversible decline of the Russian currency. What makes Russia one of the plan worthy to be discussed at the green table, which was not pleasant Americans, still will not accept that the period of their rule ended.

translate.google.com: (Американская администрация создала новые односторонние санкции против ФГУП “Рособоронэкспорт” – состояние России, специализирующихся на экспорте оружия. Причиной ссылки – военное сотрудничество с Ираном. В ответ, Российский экспортер вооружений осудил “недобросовестной конкуренции” со стороны американской стороны, и впоследствии подтвердила идею министр иностранных дел Сергей Лавров. А Дмитрий Медведев.
Это решение США рассмотрел некоторые экономические расчеты, я думаю, правдивое. Но конкуренция не была главной причиной, как это было со стороны российских властей. Давайте посмотрим, по крайней мере:
По мнению EDF, продажа американского оружия увеличилось на 50% в прошлом году (т.е. 24.7 млрд. долл. США в 2007 году и более 32 млрд. долл. США в течение последних двух лет).
В дополнение к ФГУП “Рособоронэкспорт”, включенных в черный список, кроме того, три компании из Китая, две из Северной Кореи, две из Судана и одной из Венесуэлы, Южной Кореи, Объединенных Арабских Эмиратах и Сирии. Все они ответственность за обеспечение высоких технологий может способствовать производству оружия массового уничтожения или средств транспорта, в том числе ядерного оружия или баллистических ракет. Мы здесь заметить, что перечисленные страны, за связь они имеют с Ираном, иметь хорошие двусторонние отношения с Россией. Сирия, Объединенные Арабские Эмираты, Северная Корея и Китай, очевидно, совсем недавно courted стран Америки. И руководители этих стран встречался ранее с президентом Медведевым.
В самом деле, санкции означают, что какой-либо департамент правительства США запрещают любые виды сотрудничества с компаниями из черного – контакты, покупки или услуги, – и наказывать компании не будут покупать оружие США или компоненты, не пользуются какой-либо из услуг в США поле. Я имею в виду низкого экономического воздействия, влияние на абсолютное изображения в demonical игру в средствах массовой информации.

Санкции были приняты в США против ФГУП “Рособоронэкспорт” и другими компаниями в странах, перечисленных с 12 августа этого года, но они только вступили в силу 16 октября, в течение двух лет. В уведомлении о создании блокады, это было сделано, но только в четверг, 23 октября, после опубликования решения Государственного департамента в Федеральном регистре. Это означает, что они были приняты следующие решения об отказе России в Совете Безопасности ООН для поддержки новых санкций против Ирана. Но публичные заявления, идет на фоне финансового кризиса и экономического чаще подчеркивается в Европе, и президент Медведев объявил, что Россия представляет свой собственный план по минимизации ее последствий. Давайте не будем забывать, что, согласно Bloomberg, rubla имеет по отношению долларов США обменными курсами евро ЦБ РФ, и долей рынка обмен и экономические связи были возродил после того, центральный банк не смог принять обуздать спекуляции на тех, кто утверждал необратимым снижением из российских валюта. Что делает Россию одним из плана достоин быть обсуждены на зеленом столе, который не был приятным американцы, по-прежнему не согласны с тем, что период их правления закончился.)
