ANC Youth League President Julius Malema on Wednesday labelled the United States as “blood thirsty imperialist” for bombing Libya with its Nato allies, the SABC reported.

“We want to ask a simple question to the imperialists. Are you not tired of seeing blood every year? You blood thirsty imperialists,” Malema said.

He was speaking at a protest by hundreds of Numsa members at the US Embassy in Pretoria.

“Every year you are bombing this or that nation, because of your thirstiness for blood. We should all agree that South Africa should not have voted for the resolution…,” said Malema.

It was recently reported that President Jacob Zuma had said that South Africa reiterated its concerns at the misinterpretation of a United Nations resolution.

The resolution authorises a no-fly zone over Libya, which Nato had used to “justify its bombing campaign”.

“They (the United States) can’t think. They don’t know politics.”

Malema also called the war in Libya “sponsored violence”.

He said it was sponsored by countries such as the US, France and Britain. –
