The United Nations has late in the day decided to stand up to the Libyan dictator. Their task would have been easier if they had acted when David Cameron first raised the issue.
Under the remit the coalition of the willing that forms to carry out the task could keep Libya’s jets from bombing their own country. They could also damage his army when on the move across open country by air to ground bombing. It might well be possible to stop his further ruthless progress. If they could use this power to force negotiations that might help. Without troops on the ground they cannot easily reverse the regimes gains to date.
I wish them well. I want to see Arab countries with perhaps the assistance of France and Italy undertake this task. They are the neighbours with the planes to do the job and the airfields nearby.
