Half-wit William Hague wants NATO to take lead

Half-wit William Hague wants NATO to take lead 'quickly' on Libya

NATO should take control of coalition operations in Libya
"as quickly as possible", William Hague has said. (Meaning get their
hands on the oil first)

Hague told his fellow British MPs that British planes had
taken part in fresh action over the past 24 hours to "robustly"
enforce the no-fly zone across Libya.

But pro-Gaddafi forces were continuing "appalling"
acts of violence and claims of a ceasefire were a "sham", he added.

Separately, Hague has recalled most British embassy staff
from Yemen as unrest in the country increases.

He said only "a small core" of consular staff
would remain in the capital Sanaa after the authorities declared a state of
emergency in the wake of violent clashes between security forces and protesters
demanding President Ali Abdullah Saleh step down.

In an update to the British Parliament on the current
situation in Libya, Hague told British MPs that the British, US and French
attacks - which began on Saturday - had "comprehensively degraded"
Libya's air defence infrastructure and that no Libyan military aircraft were
flying. (But it has had no effect what so ever on their ground troops)

These coalition operations are currently under US command,
but the US wants to pull out of the deal knowing it’s all going to go horridly

Hague wants a transition to NATO command and control as
quickly as possible”

Gaddafi presses key rebel cities and Yemen imposes state of

The British part of a coalition is implementing a UN
resolution which calls for an immediate ceasefire, no-fly zone and a halt to
attacks on civilians and authorises "all necessary measures", short
of an "occupying force", to achieve this.

"The case for this action remains utterly
compelling," Hague told his fellow British MPs.

The British, back a wider coalition, including Arab nations
- in the near future.

Fierce fighting between government and opposition forces is
continuing in cities across Libya.

Hague said 13 countries had now deployed aircraft to the
region Yemen unrest

As the security situation in Yemen deteriorates, Hague urged
all British citizens still in the country to leave without delay and urged the
government and opposition to engage in dialogue after recent violence left 50
people dead.

"Commercial flights to and from Yemen are still
operating, although this could clearly change," he added.

"Should there be further violence in Yemen, normal
means of leaving, particularly through the commercial airport in Sanaa, could
be blocked, and the ability to travel around Yemen will be severely

He also called on the Syrian government to show
restraint following several deaths during clashes between protesters and
security forces
