  2. You’re right it would be difficult, perhaps now we're all talking to the Libyans the families of ALL those, service and civilian fatalities can sue the arrse of that government for their deaths...
    After all the majority of imported equipment and the training of terrorist group personnel was carried out (supplied) by and in that country....
  3. Well i wont be suing the libyans, id prefer to just be told the names
  4. I'm not sure how you sue a terrorist group either, but I'm sure your Government will find some winning formula along the lines of those that identified WMD ready for use in 45 minutes........
  5. They're going to sue the individuals they think are responsible, because the standard of proof is much lower in a civil lawsuit - you have to show that the "balance of probability" is that it was their fault, not that they were guilty "beyond all reasonable doubt" as in the criminal law. Of course, the civil courts can't send you to the big house - but they can stick you with phone number damages.
