Ah, finally. After shocking nobody by refusing to "disturb" his pallsie Gaddafi by saying anything negative about his genocidal activities in Libya, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi (or related staff scribe) has grudgingly agreed to fall in line with the rest of Europe and say, "that man, he naughty man, me all of a sudden no approvey."
Silvio Berlusconi on Monday condemned the “unacceptable” use of violence against civilians in Libya and said he was “alarmed” by clashes in the former Italian colony.
“Berlusconi is alarmed by the worsening clashes and by the unacceptable use of violence on the civilian population,” the government said in a statement.
“The European Union and the international community must make every effort to prevent the Libyan crisis from degenerating into a civil war,” it added.
The statement called for “a peaceful solution ensuring security for citizens and the integrity and stability of the country and the region as a whole”
