8 sas soldiers apparently rebels

posted on Mar, 6 2011 @ 11:09 AM
Breaking: Lybian State Television broadcast a talk between Richard Northern, British Commissioner in Lybia and Former Justice Minister for Lybia asking about the captured 8 SAS soldiers. It seems there has been a misunderstanding and they were picked up by the security group. They landed by helicopter on Friday with local factions seeming to be scared of what the motives are of the soldiers?
No confirmed statement if they are being held hostage yet.

Just heard, confirmed the 8 SAS soldiers are on the HMS Cumberland, safe and well.

So it's acceptable to invade a country purely for it's resources?

It's immoral.

The United States is the most hypocritical nation on this planet. If military forces are sent into Libya, will they be sent into Zimbabwe next? No they won't....why? Because Zimbabwe doesn't have oil. It's just pure American greed and oppression as usual.

News as of this morning, has been saying that the soldiers will be realeased and sent back to the UK. and that it was simply a diplomatic mission to open up relations early with the possible new leaders.

i think this is bull crap, and they were sent over to negotiate how they can help the rebels, by supplying them with anti aircraft guns, armoured vehicles, and offer training. They dont want our help, what the hell is david cameron thinking, the stupid prat

A: This is definitely a move to help secure oil fields.

B: "Humanitarian" is always an excuse by western nations to secure resources.

C: The world is run by its economy, it's people's quality of life is directly linked to the economy, oil is a huge part of that economy. I dislike war and am opposed in general but I must recognize that oil is a legitimate reason to go to war. Its too difficult to get the average person to get behind this until they have suffered the results at which time it would be too late; so they say humanitarian.

D: When a smaller country has important resources it will always be set up as a puppet of a larger country. This is how it has to work as a large government can't accept the unknowns of a potentially volatile leader of a small country going nuts. When a puppet turns on the puppeteer it is burned and replaced.

E: I would be incredibly surprised if intelligence agents from multiple countries aren't already manipulating things behind the scenes.

All that said it looks like the UK is taking the lead on this one and will be the power that pulls the strings in Libya.

8 SAS soldiers to secure resources??? right! No its David Cameron who ordered them to go there but not sure why. The only real way to help the rebels is through their neighbors. But how could SAS get captured so easily?

Pretty obvious really. They weren't there to evade capture or attack anything.

They were to escort a diplomat to meet with the rebels. No doubt to make a direct connection and figure out whats happening. Find out what the intentions are and how we can help achieve a mutually agreeable outcome.

It seems due to the chaos on the ground the first contact was tricky. It seems that they are all safe and sound and contact has been made.

Mission accomplished, just a little less quietly than intended...
