Gaddafi may(is) a bad man - the world is full of them. The UN resolution was ( I thought ) to do with protecting civilians. Airstrikes against advancing Gaddafi troops can (just) be argued to be part of the mandate But arming the rebels - doesnt that break another UN resolution? If the rebels start firing into Tripoli and killing the pro-gaddafi civilians are the UK/US/Fr going to bomb them ?
I am with WTM this is going to go bad. Anyone see Dennis Skinner on the News tonight .. echos of what morddwyd is saying (or vice versa)
