US military strikes on Libya are “not in the vital interests of the United States” and further action should require congressional approval, under a symbolic senate resolution unveiled Thursday.
President Barack Obama “should obtain authorization from Congress before providing further military and financial support to operations in Libya,” says the measure crafted by Republican Senators John Ensign and Kay Bailey Hutchison.
The non-binding resolution says NATO members and other nations supportive of enforcing a UN mandate to protect Libyan civilians from strongman Moamer Kadhafi’s forces “should agree to provide a substantial portion of the military and financial burdens” before any more US involvement.
And members of the Arab League “should ensure that all of their military resources are available” to enforce UN resolutions on Libya,.
