British Attack Libya

The nice and politically correct word called the Coalition
that now launches its attacks on Libya, sounds a good word doesn’t it “The

This in realities means the British and the Americans with a
little French wine? Want the oil?.... Thinking too themselves how much of the
oil can we get our hands on after we get Gaddafi kicked out? Backing and
supporting the peoples uprising in ARMS

Which now bring us to wonder?  Which is different, the people uprising
against it government which is ok say the British, Americans, and French, or
renamed as rebel terrorists which amounts to the same thing looking at it through
different eyes, which is unsupported by all these governments?

NOW “What if the English people started to fight for their “Right’s”
to be English? And wanted English rule with an English government, just as the Scottish,
Welsh, and Northern Irish have? The British government ruling over the English people
is a dictatorship as the English people have no real says what happen in our
own country as like Gaddafi government ruling over his people?

Now what if the EDL (English Defence League) became part
of  the ENA (English National Army)
wanting the same freedoms and rights as do the rebels in Libya, would the ENA
and EDL be seen as being a terrorist organisation and the British government turnout
the British army and police against them or would the British government step
down? …………….Something to think on if your English and not British?  

As British cruise missiles hit more than 20 Libyan air
defence targets, and when the Libyans/Gaddafi coming looking for pay back which
he will, we hope he remembers it’s not and English government that has acted him
but a British one?

What in normality this British government has now done? Is
to have drawn England into another war? Which is and will cost more life’s and
cost English tax payers more in taxes to fund and pay for more bomb and more
bullets, unless Cameron can pull out of his magic hat, the funds to fund it?””””?

When we have so many problems of our own he in England, why
are getting involved another countries business?

The British, US and French have attacked Libyan leader Col
Muammar Gaddafi's forces in the first action to enforce an UN-mandated no-fly

Pentagon officials say the US and the British have fired
more than 110 missiles, while French planes struck pro-Gaddafi forces attacking
rebel-held Benghazi.

Col Gaddafi has vowed retaliation and said he will open arms
depots to the people to defend Libya.

Missiles struck air defence sites in the capital, Tripoli,
and Misrata.

A French plane fired the first shots against Libyan
government targets at 1645 GMT, destroying a number of military vehicles,
according to a military spokesman.

British Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed that British
planes are in action over Libya.

Despite the fact that it was French war planes which
launched the first attacks, it's clear that this early phase of the operations
is an overwhelmingly a British and American affair, all but a very small number
of cruise missiles have been fired from American ships and submarines.

Only they have the capability to inflict the sort of damage
to Libya's air defences that's needed before a no-fly zone can be safely
patrolled, a point alluded to by President Obama even as he repeated the limits
of American involvement.

President Obama has launched these attacks with great
reluctance and seems anxious that this not be interpreted as yet another
American-led foray into the Arab world which it is.

But for all his desire to be seen to take a back seat, he
and everyone else know that this sort of thing doesn't happen unless Washington
and the British are deeply involved.

US President Barack Obama, speaking during a visit to
Brazil, said the US was taking "limited military action" as part of a
"broad coalition".

"We cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people
there will be no mercy," he said.

He repeated that no US ground troops would take part. (YET?)

After the missile bombardment and the air strikes, Col
Gaddafi made a brief speech calling on people to resist.

"Civilian and military targets in the air and sea will
be liable to serious danger in the Mediterranean," he said.

"Arms depots are now open and the masses are being
equipped with all sorts of weapons in defence of Libya's independence, unity
and honour," the Libyan leader warned.

Later, state TV said 48 people were killed and 150 wounded
in the attacks. There was no independent confirmation of the statement.

The Britain's Ministry of Defence said a British submarine
and a number of Tornado jets fired missiles at Libyan military targets.

Gaddafi: Libyans should defend themselves against
"international aggression"

Cameron said that launching military action against Libya
was "necessary, legal and right". (Will it be the same so called
legal when the English do the same in England? we know its right?)

Libyan state TV reported that what it called the
"crusader enemy" had bombed civilian areas of Tripoli, as well as
fuel storage tanks supplying the western city of Misrata.

Sources in Tripoli told the London Times that the attacks on
the city had so far targeted the eastern areas of Sawani, Airport Road, and
Ghasheer. These are all areas believed to host military bases, and many
innocent people have been killed and injured in the bombings.

After midnight on Sunday, heavy bursts of anti-aircraft fire
arced into the sky above Tripoli and several explosions were heard.

The strikes on Misrata targeted a military airbase.

The British; Providing Typhoon and Tornado jet fighters;
surveillance planes; HMS Westminster and HMS Cumberland; submarines

France: Carried out mission with at least 12 warplanes
including Mirage fighters and Rafale jets; deploying aircraft carrier, warships

US: Firing guided missiles from USS Barry and USS Stout;
providing amphibious warships, and command-and-control ship USS Mount Whitney

Italy: Nat base at Naples understood to be central hub;
other Mediterranean bases made available

Canada: Providing six F-18 fighter jets and 140 personnel

UN's calculated gamble on the Libya no-fly zone: Aircraft

The cruise missiles were fired from a British submarine and
a number of American destroyers and subs, said a Pentagon official to the
London Times.

The missiles said to have hit more than 20 air defence sites
along the Mediterranean coast, said Navy Vice Adm William E Gortney.

The action came hours after Western and Arab leaders met in
Paris to agree how to enforce the UN resolution, which allows "all
necessary measures" to protect civilians from forces loyal to Col Gaddafi.

Earlier on Saturday, pro-Gaddafi forces attacked Benghazi
despite declaring a ceasefire a day earlier.

Reports from the city said that government tanks and
artillery had bombarded the city and there was fighting around the university.

President Barack Obama told the London Times: "We
cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people there will be no

Rebels in the city said thousands of people were fleeing the
attack, heading east, and the UN refugee agency said it was preparing to
receive 200,000 refugees from Libya.

London Times Journalist JG said the bombardment ended in the
later afternoon and that rebel forces were in control of Benghazi but for how
long he didn’t know.

The Libyan government blamed the rebels for breaking the
ceasefire and said its forces had fought back in self-defence.

French planes are reported to have hit government tanks and
armoured vehicles around Benghazi.

French planes also flew reconnaissance missions over
"all Libyan territory", military sources in Paris said earlier.

In addition, Canada is sending warplanes to the region,
while Italy has offered the use of its military bases. A naval blockade against
Libya is also being put in place.

The international community was intervening to stop the
"murderous madness" of Col Gaddafi, French President Nicolas Sarkozy

"In Libya, the civilian population, which is demanding
nothing more than the right to choose their own destiny, is in mortal
danger," he warned. "It is our duty to respond to their anguished

Shortly after the airstrikes began, Libyan state TV said a
French plane had been shot down near Tripoli. However, French military
officials said all their planes had returned safely.

Col Gaddafi has ruled Libya for more than 40 years. An
uprising against him began last month after long-time leaders of neighbouring
Tunisia and Egypt were toppled.
