Press release: UK welcomes UN action to sanction Libyan terrorist groups

#1
Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:


I welcome the action taken by the UN Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee to list Ansar Al Sharia Benghazi (AAS-B) and Ansar Al Sharia Derna (AAS-D). Both groups have links with Al-Qaida and are responsible for acts of terror in Libya, including bomb attacks, kidnappings, and murder.

The decision sends a clear message that the international community will take action against extremist groups in Libya who pose a threat to peace and security. It is incumbent on all Libyans to reject these groups and all they stand for.

The UK urges all parties in Libya to cease fighting immediately and fully supports the mediation efforts of the Special Representative of the UN Secretary General, Bernardino Leon, in pursuing an inclusive and broad based dialogue.

Yup. Unless they get a bit too rapey, then the will be confined to quarters to make "Lazy Jihad" protest videos for youtube viewing. Could be a profitable endeavour for the right and responsible company of men chosen to train such people.... G4S then?

"Beasts with turbans", now that's a line the Hamster could use.

What we need here is a jumped up Colonel in a funny hat who'll liberally bomb his own people.

A question just occurred to me. Where do all these jumped up dictators go to get their fancy dress uniforms? Is there a kind of international Gieves & Hawkes where they go to get fitted out - and is there a catalogue of fancy dress uniforms for them to choose from?

Hmmmm not far from here - within 100 miles in fact. Let me know when he is next in town and I will get the Russian Gazprom merchant fleet choir to dry bum him.
