Kucinich to Secretary Clinton: Africa is Not an Imperial Holding of the United States
“There is a difference between diplomacy and threats. Africa is not an imperial holding of the United States; Africa should be left to make its own decisions about its dealings with Libya without undue pressure from the United States. Such heavy-handed pressure from the Secretary of State appears to be in response to efforts by the African Union to facilitate a peace deal to end the war in Libya.
“The United States’ strategic and diplomatic interests would be best advanced by finding a peaceful solution to the conflict in Libya, not by threatening legitimate peace-seeking efforts,” said Kucinich.
