Wow what stupid rebels. They came in to talk to them and ask them if they needed anything and got locked up lol. How dumb, The Brits should tell them to release them now or forget about help in the future.

Wow. I can't see this being taken lightly. Not by the SAS.

Nail biting stuff.

A few days back a Dutch Navy helicopter and crew of 3 were captured in Libya, when they had landed to secretly pick up a Dutch civilian.

Critics said that it was a very risky operation for just one civilian and that there probably was more to it.

Btw, they were captured by Ghadaffi´s troops.

They'll be fine. Deliberately? Lmao oh yes of course let's become captives to gain european support. We don't need your support or any Europeans support to engage in missions.

It's called following a lawful order,Just because they are SAS does not mean they can pick and choose the missions they want,they were escorting a diplomat who wanted talks with the rebels,The rebels obviously don't want food or medical assistance ,or anything from anyone and that's fine,lets just let em be and they can sort out their own problems,I do wonder thou if the pro government forces gain the upper hand, will the rebels start asking for help?

now why would they need to give them
another 9 hostages when the SAS just
helicoptered out over 300 this week?
If they had just wanted EU support,
just leave the British and German Nationals.
No, this was not deliberate IMO.

Your exactly right and all the rebels did was screw themselves. Their will be MULTIPLE sf divisions sent in to get their brothers out.

It would appear to me that the Rebels
in Libya do not want outside interference
in their civil war with Gadhaffi.

Remember folks, it was the US and
Britain that helped keep Gadhaffi in power
for 40 yrs. Why would the rebels seek
the help of the folks who put their
enemy in power ???

I say let them alone and let them
fight it out. Libya will become the
next Afghanistan.

What are you smoking dude?
Seriously do you actually believe your own BS? This is why Reagan tried to kill him in an air-strike?

Yeah like there is a great love fest over Lockerbie




I say let them alone and let them
fight it out. Libya will become the

i mixed up my words,sorry about that,what i should have said is that the Gov is stupid for sending them there,also the rebels have posters all round the country saying do not invade us we will sort it out,the fear of becoming another iraq is why the rebels are fighting so hard and passionatly, they know what outside liberation does.

Not to mention the Gulf of Sidra War games (1973, 1980, 1981, 1986, 1986 again, and 1989) in which the visiting team delivered a beating to the home team....


I'd hate to see what animosity looks like to folks who think that's support!

A good example of what I've been saying since this fired up - we need to just stay home and sit this one out, and let 'em eat each other. I had other reasons for that assessment in the beginning, but this sort of thing isn't weakening my resolution any....

THIS sort of thing was my initial reason for the assessment above... I could see this sort of sentiment coming a mile away, whichever way we went if we went in.

LET - THEM - EAT - EACH - OTHER.

The whole damned sand box called Libya isn't worth having to sit through ANOTHER round of mindless soldier-bashing, and that is EXACTLY what would follow on with this line of thought.

Europe want's Libya? Let 'em get it themselves. I've got important stuff to do, like going fishing.

Honestly - I've not SEEN a "war against Libya" lately, so it's hard to fathom trying to gain European support for something that doesn't exist to even BE supported.

I know, I know.... next I'm going to hear how it's "all about oil and stealing resources"...

Of course they will. And their answer should be a really loud, Earth-shaking, rumbling, LAUGH.

No one finds it odd that these men were captured last night, right after a massive explosion that leveled an area the size of three soccer fields, in Benghazi?

Glad someone else thinks outside the box.


Bad planning on the part of the SAS and diplomats?

Or the coverup of a covert mission that got caught out?

And how many other missions do the SAS have going on right now?
