Special units of the British military are infiltrated by apparently FOCUS information a few weeks ago to Libya. There explore strategic objectives. As FOCUS learned from Berlin security sources, will camouflaged teams of Special Air Service (SAS) and Special Boat Service (SBS), which were founded during World War II to measure strategic targets such as military airfields, air defenses and communications centers and are marked for bombing. The British SAS and SBS commandos, which are also used for covert actions in Afghanistan and Iraq are trained for operations behind enemy lines. The German government is contributing not want on-site use, but maintained despite its abstention in the Libya-resolution in the UN Security Council pressure on leader Muammar Gaddafi. Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle (FDP) told FOCUS: "The tools for financial and economic sanctions are still not exhausted." Earlier, Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) said that the abstinence and the rejection of military force against Libya were not to be confused with neutrality.
Loophole for the Libyan system The international lawyer Wolfgang Ischinger, Germany criticized the abstention from voting on a no-fly zone in Libya. Since the government had already declared that they carry with many parts of the resolution, it would have been more elegant, Germany had agreed to the UN Security Council Resolution, the Chairman of the Munich Security Conference on Saturday said Germany Kultur. "They are all other means, the economic, the political pressure listed in this resolution - which we share," said Ischinger. The German ambassador would then give an explanation and it can make clear that the agreement applies, in principle, the participation in a possible use of their own soldiers but was not considered.
Basically, according to estimates Ischinger's skepticism on the right meaning and the effectiveness of military action in Libya. "The Security Council has explicitly excluded the use of ground troops," said former German diplomat. This might open a loophole for the Libyan system, ie a way to pressure from the West from the air to be tested on the ground.
