Bolton: NATO Should Have Topped Gadhafi Sooner

Friday, 02 Sep 2011 06:57 AM

The NATO should have acted sooner to help Libyan forces topple Muammar Qaddafi, John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador at the United Nations said.

“There’s no doubt, his regime is finished,” Bolton told Bloomberg Television in an interview from Cernobbio, Italy, today. “We wasted six months. We could have shattered the regime and this thing could have been long over.”

He also said that there’s “a lot of work that needs to be done” and that there’s “fundamentally a division within the Libyan society.” Even “if Qaddafi disappeared tomorrow, many of these conflicts will still exist.”
