Brussels - Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini on Monday joined EU talks saying the allied campaign in Libya "shouldn't be a war" on the country.

"We want to verify all the actions undertaken are consistent with the mission objectives" under United Nations Resolution 1739," he said.

"We do not want to go beyond the scope of the Resolution," he added as he joined talks between foreign ministers of the 27-nation bloc.

    I think Italy is right...countries with ulterior motives must not use the UN resolution as a cover to effect their own goals. The resolution does not call for a war on Libya.

    The US is paying careful attention to staying within the mandate give by the UN. It's about destroying Gadaffi's oppressive capability, thereby empowering the Libyan people.

      What planet are you living in?, this operation reeks of ulterior motives left right and center. If there was any intervention to be done, Ivory coast would have been the first one, somalia has been there for years but of course they don't have the one commodity that Libya has.
