A roadmap need to bring us to a certain destination or solution. It need to give us reliable details to guide us to where we want to go. Now let’s have a look on the Roadmap introduced by the African Union:
1. Ceasefire & protection of civilians.
2. Humanitarian aid for Libyans & foreign workers – especially Africans.
3. Dialogue between the two sides.
4. An inclusive transitional period.
5. Political reforms which “meet the aspirations of the Libyan people”.
First of all it is a big farce because this map should lead the country to a free state without Gaddafi. But this is not mentioned in the roadmap. So, of course the Colonel and his family will accept this so called roadmap to peace and will it be rejected by the National Council in Benghazi. Secondly, Gaddafi has promised a ceasefire for over three times but not for a single moment his guns were silent.
What do these political reforms mean? Who is going to believe Gaddafi will accept those terms if he suppressed the Libyans for 42 years?
To my honest opinion, this roadmap is unstable, has no basis, and is only meant for the African Union to have a voice in the situation in Libya and to tell the world: “We are part of the peace process as well.
This roadmap will not lead the people to the destination they want to go but it brings them back to where it started.
