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."

Ok so now the Libyan rebels have committed crimes against civilians as well so now NATO is turning their backs against the rebel if they dare to shoot civilians in intentional. Man this thing going to spice up a notch. i think what NATO is for trying to protect civilians even though they had killed some. What do you think about this?

It's clear what they are trying to do. They just want to create one giant s***hole and turn Libya into Iraq and Afghanistan part two.

First they side with the rebels, then they turn against the rebels creating MORE division so as to bring more chaos and disunity to that nation. 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.

Now the game is to wait until they have a reason (which they are creating on their own) to start shooting on the ground.

And they said we knew nothing about what we predicted Months ago.

Wasn't that difficult to see the lies unfold as we've been here before.

They are trying to protect the lives of civilians... Against ANYONE...

Good for them... Neither the Libyan Government nor the rebels should attempt to bring harm to civilians.

Do that,and you have consequences.

World war three is happening right now in front of us.

That is not fearmongering, it is the plain truth.

It's really a shame we allow our governments to do this over and over.

I for one am tired of the Problem-Reaction-Solution

By 'rebels' they mean anyone who opposes what them and the U.S. started over there. Rebel is a very loose term, and there are anti-revolution revolutions in Egypt now because they're beginning to understand that they're just being used.

How does that work? In what world is it easier to drill in a warzone than a peaceful country?

Or is this just another example of oil being used the go to conspiracy panacea, the motive that covers any conceivable scenario?

The countries now in Libya already had significant oil contracts in the country which went after they sided with the rebels

What they actually said was that they would use all necessary means to protect civilians but could not deploy an occupation force. Striking Gaddafi’s assets or deploying spotters is not against the terms of 1973.

Actually, they're bombing with DU - so they are harming more civilians than anyone else, and - there's also the fact that they shouldn't be in Libya at all.

Seems they have changed their mind and want to decide themselves who is to rule Libya. Presumably, they are afraid that a rebel regime would be too much Islamic oriented. To me, it seems that the West is taking full advantage of the window of opportunity provided by the Arab Spring and they want to gain control of the country's rich oil reserves. When the coalition of the willing invaded Iraq, there were more motives involved than oil only, but now it seems to be the main objective.

Well, that is actualy normal.NATO can't say they going to protect civilians and do it only partialy.
Whoever attacks civilians, gets the love from the sky.

But this is not really surprising.I mean, what better reason to send boots on the ground? Once BOTH sides go
on rampage against civilians, its far more easier to get a resolution drafted to send troops in Lybia.

I don't think Lybia will be like Iraq, but more like Somalia.

rt.com...

NATO denies using depleted uranium in Libya (why would NATO use such horrible weapons?
), and Western media isn't doing much to report it.

ffs, what is it with some people on here, maybe, just maybe, they just want to try to protect the ordinary, everyday man in the street who are increasingly being used and targetted by both sides.

Like people everywhere all the majority of Libyans want is to put a roof over their heads, have food on the table and have a little bit of time to spend with family and friends free from any sort of inteference or complications.
