UNITED NATIONS: Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe on Wednesday accused the UN Security Council of wielding an "insatiable appetite for war" as he condemned NATO's campaign that helped topple Libya's Moamer Kadhafi.
Robert Mugabe opened an address to the UN General Assembly by praising as “most glowing and most moving”, a speech by U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday in which he rued at Stevens' death.
“I am sure we were all moved, we all agree, that it was a tragic death indeed and we condemn it.
As we in spirit join the U.S. in condemning that death, shall the U. S. also join us in condemning that barbaric death of the head of state of Libya - Gaddafi? It was a loss, a great loss, to Africa, a tragic loss to Africa
…The mission was strictly to protect civilians, but it turned out that there was a hunt, a brutal hunt, of Gaddafi and his family. In a very dishonest manner we saw Chapter seven being used as a weapon to rout a whole family.
Bombs were thrown about in a callous manner and quite a good many civilians died. Was that the protection that they had sought under Chapter seven of the Charter?
So the death of Gaddafi must be seen in the same tragic manner as the death of Christopher Stevens. We condemn both of them.”
The 88-year-old firebrand critic of the West told the UN General Assembly that NATO's "military hegemony" in Libya showed how the alliance's members are "inspired by the arrogant belief that they are the most powerful among us."
The African Union's peacemaking efforts in Libya were "defied, ignored and humiliated," he added.
"May we urge the international community to collectively nip this dangerous and unwelcome development before it festers," he told world leaders.
NATO launched military strikes last year after the Security Council passed two resolutions on protecting civilians from Kadhafi's crackdown. The new Libyan government and the West have hailed the campaign but Russia, China and others say now that they were tricked into accepting the action.
The Security Council ignores attempts to peacefully end disputes, Mugabe stormed.
"In contrast there appears to be an insatiable appetite for war, embargoes, sanctions and other punitive actions," he said.
Mugabe, also said the UN's "responsibility to protect" concept had been "seriously abused" and trespassed on the sovereignty of individual states.
