Xinhua: Air Strikes in Libya Are Disturbing; War Cannot Bring Stability

Xinhua published an editorial commenting on the U.S. and European nations’ recent air strikes in Libya saying, “Conflicts should be resolved through peaceful means. Wars cannot end violence or quickly bring about stability; rather, it will but aggravate human disasters.” The Xinhua editorial cited examples of the U.S. military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. “Today, the two countries are still politically unstable with the local population suffering from continued violence and disasters. The international reputation and image of the instigator of the wars has also been tarnished. It shows that any action that lacks fairness and justice may bring unintended consequences to the initiator.”
