Germany has pulled out of NATO operations in the Mediterranean due to the disagreement over the forces' mission in Libya.


The German defense ministry said on Tuesday that Berlin pulled out of any military operations in the Mediterranean following the Western military alliance's involvement in the Libya conflict, DPA reported.

A ministry spokesman said two frigates and two other ships with a crew of 550 would be reverted to German command.

Some 60 to 70 German troops participating in NATO-operated AWACS surveillance operations in the Mediterranean would also be withdrawn, according to the ministry.

Following the disputes among NATO members over the military intervention in Libya, they met in Brussels to mend differences over what role the alliance should play in Libya.

France says the takeover of the operations by NATO will alienate Arab states, however, Italy believes that NATO should take control of the military campaign in Libya.

Meanwhile, the head of the Italian Senate's defense affairs committee, Gianpiero Cantoni, said the French policy is motivated by a desire to secure oil contracts with a future Libyan government.

US President Barack Obama, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Prime Minister David Cameron have agreed NATO should play an important role in the command structure of the Libya mission, the White House said.

"They reviewed the substantial progress that's been made in terms of halting the advance of Gaddafi's forces on Benghazi as well as the establishment of a no-fly zone," said White House spokesman Ben Rhodes.

Bravo Germany, enough is enough,Good move.


truth prevails:
Germans were very geneous ever, in second world war they tried to save the whole world by the cancer of zionism, and paid the price and now are they getting aside from the zionist vampires.............


flood:
The germans are wise, this is a quagmire where the libyans have invited west to bomb them , and gadaffi has gone underground. he has armed the population and enmeshes the west and US in a war without end foolish sarkozy and his one upmanship has sowed the seeds of ruin of french economy. The british plan to lay off teachers and close schools and colleges to wage war. The emperor is not wearing clothes.


good job germany:
GERMANY nice job don't follow what america do!!! be like turkey, russia.. don't follow what america says!!! now AMERICA is getting weak around the world and inside america!!


Seyyed Mohammd:
This German move Turkey rejections should mean End of NATO in reality. Because have a paragraph that says ALL members has to agree. I personally think all tis commando-agreements is a game. Probably they are trying to justify the next move, something like giving the command-control for fighter-jets and curs-rackets to Saudi Arabia or Jordan, or something similar.


flood:
Gadaffi is a a typical bedouin arab horse trader , he has cleverly trapped amateurs like sarkozy and cameron with obama acting as conductor. Gaddafi will ensure a mess that none of the participants can get out of. Germany is wise to have stayed away.


Behnaz:
As long as Turkey is against the bombings in Libya, it is illegal for NATO to take the command of the operations.Nobody respects the international laws anymore.

Norway:

A noticeable level of friction has also emerged within NATO member states, with Norway saying its fighter jets would not participate in the military operations as long as it was unclear who was in command.

Germany and Russia have also drawn a sharp rebuke over the way the military operations are being carried out as some reports point to some civilian casualties as the result of the attacks.

Germany, Catholic Europe, probably Japan, Korea

..........will remember the PRE WORLD WAR 2 past games!

That of SQUEEZING of markets, raw materials, energy, commodities to their newly industrialized states!
The POWER of those times The British Empire, French Empire, Spanish Empire, Portugese Empire, Dutch Empire, Belgium Empire and that of the new rising STAR, the American Empire-State!

The rest of the world, only the OTTOMAN empire, Qing's dynasty China Empire, Tzar's Russian Empire remained intact.
Of course, the Germans doesn't want to see the "meltdown" in the Berber, Niger, Moor, Nubian, Arab, Turkish, Persian world! They would prefer "status quo" and peace "free trade" in those regions!

cheerios!

This isn't a NATO operation, if it was, you'll see ground troops by now.
