Well here we are 4 months into our 'war' with Gaddafi. We're a few weeks away from Ramadan, when most Arab countries will shut down, it being in the middle of summer this year.
We were told that Gaddafi and his family would have cracked by now, but his son has just made a broadcast on French TV saying that they'll never surrender. As I've outlined on here before, the rebels are a ragtag army of misfits, from genuine Gaddafi haters to Islamic militants. The only thing that appears to be cracking is the will of NATO to take the fight to the dictator's family. The Italian PM Berlusconi, has said that he was against it from the start, the Germans are not committing any forces and most of the military might is from France and the UK.
Meanwhile our politicians are more wrapped up in a phone hacking scandal than the welfare of our troops, who if this 'war' is to be properly actioned will have to be sent in on the ground to help the so called rebels, who if they win against Gaddafi will be fighting us as we try and get our hands on their oil, which as we all know is the reason we're there in the first place!
