The Communist Party of Malta condemns the tactic by western military forces which are misinterpreting the UN resolution for a 'No fly zone' by carrying out an imperialist war against Libya.
The hypocrisy of Western countries knows no bounds. These same countries which are at war in Libya today, remain silent to the barbaric attacks by Israeli forces inside Gaza, and are also silent in the invasion of Bahrain by the ruthless military Saudi dictatorship, with the tacit support of the US Administration, to crush the popular uprisings in that country.
The Communist Party was even not surprised by the remarks made by Dr Fenech Adami to for Malta to be used as a military base in the Libyan issue. When Dr Fenech Adami was Prime Minister he took the wrong decision to allow Malta to be used in the illegal war against the Iraqi people.
The Communist Party of Malta believes that the Libyan issue can only be solved through diplomatic initiatives, as expressed by the African Union and several other independent countries in Latin America
NATO's entry in this conflagration does not auger well for peace.in the Mediterennean region.
