Germany on Sunday warned that the West may find itself dragged into a protracted warfare in Libya as the U.S., British and French forces launched military strikes on the country.

"We have to see the risk of the a lengthy mission," Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle told reporters. "We hope that our fears will not be borne out. We expressly hope that we won't be right," said the minister.

Westerwelle said one should be prepared for the scenarios that are not so favorable.

Germany abstained in a UN Security Council vote on Thursday on setting up a no-fly zone in Libya. Permanent UNSC members Russia and China, as well as non-permanent ones Germany, India and Brazil abstained from the vote.
