Who are yooouuu… fighting?

David Cameron today in the House of Commons, stated “We simply cannot stand back and let a dictator – whose people have rejected him – kill his people indiscriminately. To do so would send a chilling signal to others striving for democracy across the region.” Again, it must be said Cameron should look to his own backyard and see that the people of Britain are striving for democracy, not- the ritual of crossng an X by a  would-be MPs name at 4 or 5 year intervals. As it is the British only have this to name as the luxury of being a ‘democratic nation’.

Cameron might be reminded that, he did not object at the time Tony Blair was posing for photo’s with Gadaffi, and that he has been guilty of doing the same with other so-called dictators.

Cameron also said “I can tell this House that Britain will deploy Tornados and Typhoons as well as air-to-air refuelling and surveillance aircraft. “Preparations to deploy those aircraft have already started and in the coming hours they will move to air bases from where they can start to take the necessary action.”

Will he now re-open the SDSR? Has he thought what may happen if the aircraft that Britain can still call its own, fails or is shot down is there a back up/ or plan B?

Crucial though is, the aim, we know who it is we are supposed to be  fighting -Gadaffi and his regime- but who for, just who are the rebels, Cameron, Hague, Obama, Clinton, etc none of whom have spelt out who these ‘rebels’ are.It has been done before, Western governments themselves dictating to other countries how to live. This may be a ‘win’ for Cameron as so many failygraph commentators are putting it, but I would not bet on such an outcome.

Who knows it may just  be a worse regime waiting in the wings, waiting for Gadaffi and the rest to be toppled, nobody knows.And that is the point, once again this government has rushed to conclusions and has not thought through what may come next.
