The United States on Thursday dismissed Venezuela's proposal for mediation to help put an end to violence in Libya, saying that Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi does not need to be told "what he needs to do."

US State Department spokesman Philip Crowley insisted on urging Gaddafi to leave office immediately. For three weeks, the Libyan opposition has staged an uprising which the Libyan leader has tried to crush with his security forces, AFP reported.

"You don't need an international commission to tell Colonel Gaddafi what he needs to do for the good of his country and the good of his people," Crowley told reporters when asked about the Venezuelan proposal.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, an ally of Gaddafi, has proposed creating an international peacekeeping mission with friendly nations to try to mediate in the escalating violence in Libya and avoid a civil war. The Arab League said it is "pondering" the proposal.
