Dr Liam Fox gives interview on deployment of Uk Forces to Libya.

UK Forces, alongside coalition partners from NATO, will implement a "No-Fly Zone" over Libya in accordance with UN Resolution 4.952 to prevent attacks on Libyan civilians by the Gaddaffi Regime.

Accommpanied by Gen Sir David Richards, CDS, and Air Vice Marshall Sir Paddy McGuinness, who had both just left the MOD weekly Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Gay and Transgender Seminar in Main Building, Mr Fox emphasised the importance of Britain's role in these measures.

He said " We (UK) as a global power have a moral duty to lead the world in ensuring that genocide does not take place under an undemocratic and dangerous regime that we are now seeing take effect in Libya"

The UK will fly 4 tornadoes and the Red Arrows (who are training in Cyprus) to a secret location (Gibraltar) ready for action if required.

My question is this. If there is that much concern about the civilians in Libya (most of whom are ex soldiers and are doing well in fighting back), what about the civilians in the many other countries whose governments are fighting their civilians such as the Ivory Coast for example? Why are we not enforcing a no fly zone there?

Because this is the NAAFI and its a wind up? :D

Ivory Coast is a small country, of which we know little. (and it was French).

Oops, my mistake. Tits.

Thank god we have the red arrows. the only full strength squadron left.

red arrows - why not send in the white helmets (royal signals motorcycle display team) do some much needed entertainment!
 
#13
Wouldn't be surprised if they deploy the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight for this gig !
 
#14
Don't want to upset the PC Brigade now do we!
I doubt that the Chief Constable will be able to motivate them with all the announced cuts. Unless he sells them on the o/t available? Are there any miners in Libya?
 
#15
Just wait until Libya's SF see the Diamond 9 or the Cork Screw. That'll sort em out.

Right, got to go... apparently, they need a photographer. £5 per hour and as much sand as I can eat.

You lot really are cynical bunch, the US have a fleet including an Aircraft Carrier,La Frogs have the Charles De Gaulle (sic) steaming down on them and it has just been announced that the British are sending a flotilla from Cyprus it will be dispatched as soon as the duty Jack Tar with keys can unlock the pedalos and find another 4 sailors they will be on there way.

And just how do they think a no fly zone will affect the Libyan attitude to Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgenders?

If they are going to kill them they are not going to use aircraft!

Shirley it's time to unleash the Typhoon?
Or, is it true Shirley don't do "no-fly" zones?
