West now wants Afican Union to fig-leaf "transition in Libya" -- after bombing their peace proposals
If this was not so disgusting it would be funny. After months of dismissing the African Union call for
a ceasefire and supervised election, the UN now wants the African Union to cooperate in Western Power's remake of Libya.

You would think that the West would at least wait till they stop killing (errr "protecting") the Libyan people.

UN calls for AU's cooperation, leadership to achieve peace, smooth transition in Libya




ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations (UN) on Friday called for continued cooperation, support and strong leadership from the African Union (AU) for united efforts to helping Libya build peace and make a smooth and inclusive transition of power.
. . .

The AU Peace and Security Council has kicked off a summit on Libya at heads of states level chaired by South African President Jacob Zuma, and also with the attendance of President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and President Ismail Omar Guelleh of Djibouti as well as other member state ministers and deputy ministers.

"In Libya, you (AU) have been unrelenting in seeking a peaceful solution, and you are instrumental in helping Libya to rebuild its future. When the UN and the African Union Commission work together, we succeed," Migiro said.

1. "Contadora called on to legitimate Nicaraguan Democratic Force"
FYI, Arabic for Contra is مضاد, "muṣtalid"
