How does the Libyan AF defect to malta explain civillian bombings?
Yesterday my prime minister told me to bomb Oslo, instead i choose to fly elsewhere. Here is a picture of my plane on A tar-mac to prove it:
See.. explains nothing.. just saying
what about the other guys he told to bomb?
i don't see their planes.
explains nothing, is right.
Well if this does amount to WWIII I'll be seeking refuge in one of our many mountains here in Norway hoping that we are not caught in the crossfire between the US and the RUS.edit on 2-3-2011 by Vampiri because: Cause i forgot to add stuff
Stratfor, a private firm that does political analysis, reported on Tuesday that Ukrainian mercenaries piloted planes that had bombed hundreds of protesters near the Libyan capital Tripoli.
The pilots receive between 2,000 and 8,000 dollars a month, Segodnya reported, citing Ukrainian combat flyers.
A Ukrainian aircraft repair and overhaul facility reportedly has provided maintenance support for Libyan air force aircraft since 2008.
Ukrainian military professionals fighting on other nations' behalf have landed the former Soviet republic in hot water repeatedly.

Reports by Al Jazeera about Libyan jets firing on protesters in Tripoli and the major cities are unverified and questionable.  Here too, the reports that Libyan jets have been attacking people in the streets have not been verified. No visual evidence of the jet attacks has been shown, while visual confirmation about other events have been coming out of Libya.
Al Jazeera is not alone in its biased reporting from Libya. The Saudi media is also relishing the events in Libya. Asharq Al-Awsat is a paper that is strictly aligned to U.S. interests in the Middle East-North Africa (MENA) region. Its editor-in-chief is now running editorials glorifying the Arab League for their decision to suspend Libya – why were such steps not taken for Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, or Yemen? Inside and outside the Arab World, the mainstream media is now creating the conditions for some sort of intervention in Libya.
