Pro Gaddafi forces entering Benghazi. Looks like we've got ourselves another war
I can imagine air strikes starting relatively soon before possible decelerations of war later on after the meeting in paris.
What an awful liar. He thought about his lies, and clearly read from a script the whole time.
I'll do a tentative one ....'rah'
BBC world affairs correspondent Alan Little in Tripoli said it was assumed the shot-down plane in Benghazi belonged to Col Gaddafi's forces, but it now appears it was flown by rebel forces.
no one said they had any
Gadaffi's spokesman claims the rebels are bombing and shooting down themselves in order to bring in Western aid. Well, worth a shot, I suppose.
because we haven't had tea in paris yet
It is apparent how much like getting a loan war is these days
in that all casualties to date appear to be pro Gaddafi
it's going to be a LONG one
a decade at least
this is a well-written and ominous piece on the state of play
and some unsubstantiated assumptions.
very bleak outlook.
I'm starting a course on Monday, "Crisis and Law. Comparing Legal Consequences of Civil Wars."
must be confusing the hell out of the neocons
A number of their planes are refueling up at Prestwick, and the Danes and the Spanish are heading to Sicily before things really kick off.

It must be serious
or somesuch nonsense*
He's clearly been working on it, probably since aged 3. Ever Tory leaders dream to have to put on their 'war voice'
I mean that in a literal sense, there's always an ulterior motive, I just don't know what it is. It's definitely not just for the 'good of the Libyan people' or whatever it is Cameron trotted out.
We should have a war for more niche or indie reasons just to shake things up.
Invade somewhere for their knitwear or something.
Alternatively, I'm sure those who are dead set on taking the totally banal and simplistic view that all international affairs everywhere are about oil will say it's about that, though I'm goddamed if I can see how that even makes any sense given that oil interests have been doing good business in Gadaffi's Libya, and there's little the oil industry hates more than instability, civil war and the general tribal clusterfuck type situation that is developing.
the US would change the plane to a giant dick and install motors to make the hand go back and forth.
now you've said that no one will be able to see it any other way
leaving from Prestwich airport. I sent them this
and they go back saying they were holding the front page for it and how much did I want, nice to see they can take a joke, I'm assuming they weren't being serious...
whats the normal amount for the front page of the herald?
