The Libyan war goes on and on.........
Well, here we are on the last day of May and the ‘humanitarian’ intervention in Libya is still ongoing.
When it started, it was supposed to be about protecting civilians in Benghazi- now it’s quite clearly about regime change- which is illegal under international law.
And in the words of The Guardian's Jonathan Steele:
Beware ministers' claims that a military campaign is making slow but steady progress. It nearly always means the opposite. If "progress" was really being made in Libya, why would it be necessary for Britain and France to send attack helicopters?
As to how much this latest military adventure is costing us- take a look at this .
Remember the article the next time you hear a coalition politician trot out the line ‘we’ve got no money left because Gordon Brown spent it all’.
