“Friendly Nations”

Hugo Chavez’s idea of international mediation to solve the Libya crisis has been dismissed by Western countries. Under his plan there would be:

an international peace mission with forces from friendly nations to try to mediate the unrest gripping Libya.

Friendly to who?

The only peace that includes Gaddafi surviving as a leader of Libya, as I suspect Chavez would prefer, is going to involve a lot of violence.
