NATO after Libya

­Karl Lamers – President, NATO Parliamentary Assembly

The long-serving Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is dead. After nearly a year of violence, he was captured and massacred by a furious crowd. Now the dictator’s gone and so is the NATO support force. The Alliance’s "top guns" are packing their bags to fly back home, while the world speculates as to whether the intervention was the right thing or not. Many say NATO should not have supported just one side of the conflict. Others find it premature to withdraw now, when not all of the Gaddafi supporters have been defeated. So wouldn't it have been reasonable to stay and secure peace in the region? Or does the Allied force have more important business to attend to? We are asking is the President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, Karl Lamers.
