UK and Nato forces would be prepared to turn their guns on their present allies, Libya's rebels, if they attacked civilians loyal to Muammar Gaddafi's regime, British officials stated yesterday.
The warning follows a report by Human Rights Watch accusing the opposition of abusing civilians and calling on the provisional government in Benghazi, the National Transitional Council (NTC), to investigate. One rebel commander said last night: "We object to being threatened by our allies."
Of course this suits them well because, the more drama, the more distractions, the more confusion, the more oil.
Well they declared a no fly zone...but killed from the air.
They said "No boots on the ground" but they're walking around.

Good for them... Neither the Libyan Government nor the rebels should attempt to bring harm to civilians.
Do that,and you have consequences.
