    Breaking on Auntie at the moment - Sarko's Foreign Minister thinks that the UN should approve military intervention if the current peace plan fails.

    (Link to follow).

    Sarko will probably lose the election in the next few weeks but, grandstanding aside, do the frogs have a point? And if they do, whose boots will be on the ground? (I don't think that this will be Libya MkII if it all goes breasts skywards.)

    In an ideal world: Russian acquiescence, Saudi money and Turkish boots plus NATO aircraft.

    Don't think we've got the ducks in a row yet.
  4. You mean Cyprus will finally become that 'difficult' posting the RAF PR blokes keeps talkig about?

    Well, Churchill did call it a stiletto pointing at the heart of the Ottoman Empire (or words to that effect).

    Not sure if that was before or after Gallipoli. How apt for ANZAC Day, lest we forget.

    We may be crazy but we are not stupid – this latest grandstanding by Alain Marie Juppé is quite amusing – would probably turn up to the opening of an envelope if there was the slightest chance of a litre or so of Pedesclaux going free. Corrupt little grenouille should be pitied, probably drunk when he made the comment about 300 extra monitors. What we are seeing is the death throes of a presidency believe it or not, “Rubber Face” probably let the “Comeback Kid” lose in the hope of getting a second term – sorry isn’t going to happen. Syria is far too complex a problem for Juppé’s little brain, his ideas, as usual, are ill-conceived – Assad DOES NOT give a flying one - he will continue killing his people until the Russians decide to wash their hands of him
