"Nato on Wednesday extended its Libyan air war by three months and said the departure of strongman Muammar Gaddafi is only a question of time, as the African Union backed Russian mediation of the crisis. Hours after Nato-led aircraft launched new raids on Tripoli, ambassadors of the military alliance meeting in Brussels decided to renew the mission for another 90 days to late September." [editor's note: It seems to me that the US and the European powers are very much at risk of prompting the AU to evolve from punchline to actual alliance, force it into Russia's sphere of influence, and set up a mini Cold War. Or maybe that's their intent? - TLK] (06/02/11)
