Janey, this look familiar




– 15 mins ago AP
LONDON – British media are praising a secret Special Forces military mission to rescue oil workers from the remote Libyan desert.

The media had strongly criticized the ineptitude of the British government's earlier efforts to rescue citizens stranded in the chaos. But on Sunday, newspapers praised the military evacuation of 150 stranded civilians by two RAF Hercules planes to Malta as a "daring and dramatic" operation.

Who the hell asked for the removal of use of force in the UN resolution? Who are those war criminals helpers?

And any word if NATO might use force outside of the UN?

it is looking like individual NATO countries are likely to act together outside of the UN. There is a legal precedent for this. The operation in Kosovo against genocide was done out of the UN. Russia along with Turkey were against a use of force resolution with Russia saying they would use their veto. Just reading my emails that I woke up to now and there is a view that the Kosovo style approach is totally legal without UN backing.
I was pointing this out too in the early days.. while somebody was saying they can't act if its not a "war" between countries..

OT: but very important so I will mention here:

BREAKING out of Korea. North Korea has now officially informed the UN and SK that they plan to open fire on South Korean facilities in response to leaflet drops etc is SK contnues. This is for real as they have sent this to the UN and through the military hotline also.

"We officially notify that our army will stage a direct fire at the (Imjin) Pavilion and other sources of the anti-DPRK psychological warfare to destroy them on the principle of self-defense, if such actions last despite our repeated warning," the official added. "The group of traitors in South Korea must stop the anti-DPRK psychological warfare at once, squarely seeing the seriousness of the prevailing situation."

I think he will too without a second of hesitation. He is not rational in any sense

If the reports of protests in NK are true they might start a conflict with SK to distract their people. They also know the US is busy between Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and the spreading of protests to other Middle Eastern and African countries. Kim might go all in this time.

Yeah, that has to be the worry. If he does use chemical weapons then the UN has no choice but to allow the use of force.
