Returning the Favour

The EU press office reports on yesterday’s European Parliament discussions on Libya:

“EU governments need to stand ready for a decision in the UN Security Council on further measures, including the possibility of a no-fly zone”, in compliance with a UN mandate and coordination with the Arab League and the African Union stressed MEPs in a widely-backed resolution (584 in favour, 18 against, 18 abstentions). During the debate, only the GUE/NGL group was against this idea”

And who is this GUE/NGL group Guido hears you ask? Well the European United Left–Nordic Green Left of course. Big players like the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia, the Communist Party of Greece and the French Communist Party. Oh and Sinn Fein predictably…

Not a bad trade for shipments of 9mm Brownings, Glock and Beretta handguns, AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifles, MP5 submachine guns, RPG-7 anti-tank rocket launchers, Soviet made DShK heavy machine guns, FN MAG machine guns, Military flamethrowers, Semtex plastic explosive and Strela 2 man portable SAMs.

        What the loony left, communists and greens forget is that for complete control, you need lot’s of oil, electricity, sophisticated surveillance equipment and a society which functions at some low level.

        All their policies preclude all of the above so they’re on a hiding to nothing.

      Let’s hope they don’t get a mandate. Just about the last thing we need is yet another un-winnable, pointless, interference in North African / Middle Eastern countries. This is a very dodgy situation and given the absolute inability of western media to highlight the real facts and our governments propensity to lie and act as a US poodle we just do not know what’s behind this “uprising”.

    “The Colonel” can’t believe his luck….a massive earthquake and tsunami engulfs Japan deflecting the World’s media(the BBC especially has been running continuous coverage from Japanese State Broadcaster…NHK since early this morning…at least Sky has been covering both stories)and no doubt the massive re-deployment of senior BBC Journalists to the pacific away from the Mediterranean is underway ?…Meanwhile the “West’s” discussions on the no-fly zone over Leeb-ya drag on snail-like and without discernible momentum other than an occasional anguished cry of ……”Something MUST be done !”….. but what and by who and when is proving much harder to deliver……………………..a worrying trend is that “Dave” is now reported as discussing with his various counterparts in the EU the actions they take IF “The Colonel” actually remains in charge….could he perhaps be persuaded to stand down voluntarily if they asked nicely….who said that the ghost of Neville Chamberlain’s was not alive and well in the council chambers of europe ???

    Gaddafi has only been on the move since it became clear that no one was going to stop him.
    Rebel armed Landcruisers aren’t much of a match for even Libya’s ancient t-55’s.
    A single Challenger could have destroyed Gaddafi’s army. {Assuming MOD sent enough spares..Admittedly that’s a lot to ask.}

    Since the “vote no-to no fly” Gadaffi has sent his armor, artillery and planes to crush his enemies as he knows that NATO/UN/WI won’t destroy them, which was his fear all along. certainly his army wouldn’t go to certain death if the Yanks were about to turn up and fire cruise missiles up their backsides..

    Unless he machine guns an orphanage on the BBC or shoots a kitten live on air he’s only got a few days of wilderness time left. Qaddafi and sons are going to win.
    Then he’s back.

    And he’s going to be very angry.
    And then very vengeful.
