I donít know anything about deserts or Hercules aircraft but, it appears to have been a †hugely successful operation and a tribute to the bravery of our armed forces.
One thing I do know is that Gaddafi is, at best, seriously unbalanced and will stop at nothing to cling on to power at the expense of his own people.
To take Tripoli, the anti Gaddafi faction will have to overcome the military lodged in a city containing a third of the countryís population and put this evil man and his sons to death. †I canít see this happening in the near future without a tremendous loss of life as the troops stationed outside Tripoli were not trained to any reasonable extent whereas those within the city are trained to a comparatively high standard together with the air force of that country.
Who will come to Gaddafiís aid? †Who will come to the aid of the dissidents?
Once again, the world has to stand by and witness a despot who has been supported by the major western countries, carry out atrocities against his own people.
Shame on them and shame on Gaddafi!!!
Alright Steve, Unfortunatly the fighting in Libya is an internal affair & only the UN can sanction outside intervention & they can’t because Russia & China will veto any attempt to pass a motion legalising outside intervention.
A situation may be desperate but never serious
