Is Cameron wriggling to get ground forces into Libya?

First, a firm declaration from Cameron that the UK / NATO will not put an invasion / occupation force into Libya

Next, carefully placed news stories about a growing humanitarian / medical / genocidal crisis

Now I'm expecting government law officers to issue an 'interpretation' of the Security Council Resolution that permits 'military advisors' 'ground co-ordination resources' 'medical teams' etc.

Just saying.

Hope not, Libya and the Libyans aren't worth a single British army life.
Same with Afghans, same with Iraqis.

Concur completely with the above comment, those who wish to intervene should travel personally to Libya at their own expense.

Pound to a penny though that a ground war happens.

Old news: I overheard weeks ago that ground troops were being told they were being deployed to Libya. If what I heard was right, there'll be boots on the ground in the next week or two.

It shocked me because the U.N. resolution had only just been passed and already squaddies were being told they would be deployed to Libya in around 5 weeks.

But it shows there's a different agenda to the one the media and government continue to spin us.

"Protecting the public" has gradually moved to "regime change", which was probably the agenda all along.

Various strands are being spun towards the need to have boots on the ground and its been interesting watching how things have been gradually moved along when you know the end game.
