And that why I am saying NO British Troops in Libya. I can see it happening now that country going down the same road as Afghanistan. What makes it a little more alarming will Labour support the Government. I for one certainly hope not. If they even think about it, there will be bigger protests than the one which happened before Iraq.

Besides Gadaffe is not finished yet, he still has an arsenal.


However the rebel dude with Gadaffi's hat, chain and that golden what ever it was he had in his hand, was cute

I havnt seen that cute rebel with Gaddafis gear,perhaps it was Gaddafi after more extensive plastic surgey making a escape



Liberal,Labour or conservative-there all the same.We have an illusion of our vote being important,but thats all it is just smoke and mirrors.

Same in any country,you have a couple of parties to choose from but on whole there puppets on sometimes visable strings being used for the agenda of the real global powers

Just wish we could all uprise against this corrupt system that enslaves us purely as cash cows to be bled from our wages in life and beyond death!From the big banks to short selling parasites,the real workers on this planet are being shafted royaly by moraly corrupt individuals who value wealth above the lifes of everyone

I can remember seeing an old vid at the start of the Iraq war showing oil company men(and I hate to call them that as they looked like bloated vultures)smiling and licking thier lips in glee upon looking at the profit thier companies could make working with the new Iraq

They are the true darkness of humanity,a blook soaked stain upon our history showing nothing gets in the way of profit margins and the population are just pawns to be used

anyway sorry to go off topic!

Have heard a few stories coming out of Libya that Apache gunships were also being used,but the media footage of the fighting is pretty bad

Press Release from MOD UK

RAF ready for further action over Tripoli
A Military Operations news article

23 Aug 11


www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/DefenceNews/MilitaryOperations/RafReadyForFurtherActionOverTripoli.htm


As street fighting continues in Tripoli between Free Libya Forces and members of Colonel Gaddafi's former regime, British and NATO military aircraft are maintaining a presence in the air.

In the lead up to Free Libya Forces entering Tripoli this weekend the RAF continued to strike at key Colonel Gaddafi targets within the city as part of NATO's Operation UNIFIED PROTECTOR.

On Sunday morning RAF Tornado and Typhoon aircraft mounted a precision strike before dawn on the military intelligence operations room in Tripoli, close to the Baroni intelligence facility which the RAF had successfully bombed 24 hours previously.

Nine Paveway guided bombs were delivered with great accuracy to the target.

Later in the day, an armed reconnaissance patrol identified and destroyed one of Gaddafi's main battle tanks positioned on the outskirts of the city.

Foreign troops are present in Libya, it is one of the propaganda lies from a long list. They have been operating extensively in Libya for a long time, just because you don't see them in the cameras doesn't mean they are not there. They have been conducting operations all across Libya. The MSM refuses to publish videos with foreign forces fighting in the front line a long side CIA based Haftari militia.

Al-Jazeera which is cooperating in this war propaganda only released on video, just to confirm that Foreign soldiers are operating on the ground, but that was only once and that never happened again. The host country of Al-Jazeera is also involved in this war. People went to Al-Jazeera as an alternative, but they were failed big time, then they went to PressTV, they were failed again. It goes to show, no media is unbiased, the only reasonable thing to do is to look at information from all sides and make your own conclusions rather than allowing paid reporters to do it for you.

In my assessment I think Iran support NATO militias against the Libyan Jamahariya government for two reasons, one for ideological reasons, because Iran believes in Islam being dominated by culture which the Libyan government did not support nor tolerate in some cases.

And the second reason being in the context of a broader war, Iran believes that it can turn Libya in to a play ground, to keep NATO busy in Libya, making it almost impossible for them to advance to what some believe is NATO's next targets.

So Iran has chosen an anti-Libyan policy and instead supported NATO. It is like supporting your enemy's mistakes and encouraging your enemy to walk in that direct where all the traps are set. The play ground is set, Libyans have to choose foreign backers now because there is no other option, therefore different section of Libya will become pawns for someone else. It deeply resembles the depressing situation Afghanistan faced during USSR decline.

I wish the Libyan people well. I hope they get a decent government and a reasonable share of that nation's wealth, but the chances of that happening are very slim.

If Gaddafi had been able to appreciate more the dangers he faced from his customers in the West, he might have handled the various factions in Libya wiith more care and might have avoided the "Arab spring".

Being in the oil business is like being in the heroin trade. The dealer has to watch his customers carefully because they need the dope and would try to take it by force if they were desperate enough and short of cash (NATO) and he has to keep his business partners happy, because any one of them might knock him off at any time to take over the trade themselves (the Libyan rebels).

The worst situation is where the customers and the unhappy or ambitious business partners collude. That is what happened to Gaddafi.

His key mistake was in failing to bring the opposition in Libya into the tent and to get them onside with his plans for the country. Ultimately, he was too typical of the kind of leaders that region produces, too much of a tribal chief.

The chief lesson out of this for the West is that the destabilization game is still working. The chief lesson for the various rebel factions in Libya is that armed uprising works.

This bodes ill for the future.

Yes, it's a trap.

Gaddafi and his army has bugged out to the south.
There is a huge missile base there.

When the timing is right, He will fire scuds at Tripoli.

CNN just admitted NATO invasion.


Foreign forces in Libya helping rebel forces advance
From Barbara Starr, CNN
August 24, 2011 -- Updated 1406 GMT (2206 HKT)


edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/africa/08/24/libya.foreign.forces/index.html


Washington (CNN) -- Special forces troops from Britain, France, Jordan and Qatar on the ground in Libya have stepped up operations in Tripoli and other cities in recent days to help rebel forces as they conducted their final advance on the Gadhafi regime, a NATO official confirmed to CNN Wednesday.

British forces, in particular, have assisted rebel units by "helping them get better organized to conduct operations," the official said. Some of these forces from all the countries have traveled with rebel units from towns across Libya as they advanced on Tripoli.

The official declined to be identified due to the sensitive nature of the intelligence information.

Overall, the special forces have helped rebels "improve their tactics," the official said.

France 24 is reporting on their Twitter feed that the rebels have announced a reward of $1.7 million for the head of Muammar Gaddafi, dead or alive. Apparently there are rumors circulating that Gaddafi has poisoned the tap water system, so the rebels are afraid to drink from it. Rumors, rumors, rumors.

The reward money for Gaddafi is asserted to have been proposed by some Libyan businessmen and the NTC is said to support this initiative.

They need to find all of the tunnels.
Ground penetrating radar?
Start at the Gaddafy compound. Then move south.

There must still be significant resistance by loyalists in Tripoli.

That reminds me of Paris , France 1945.
Nazi sympathizers?
-----------
The rebels should secure the airport and then just pull back and starve them out.
Drive south and attack the new Gaddafy HQ.

The worst is over.

It is definitely an interesting juncture. I think uppermost on NATO's agenda will be the arrest of Gaddafi. Taking out the kingpin will cut through many difficulties.

For me the question is whether or not there is hardened support for Gaddafi. The sort of resilience that the Afghans bring to circumstances like this. Even if a Libyan equalled one tenth of an Afghan or a Vietnamese, in terms of tenacity and "mind your own business-ness", NATO might have it's hands full for a long time.
