Is Libya Next On ISIL’s List?

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Immigration, Insurgents, Islamic State, Muslim, News, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 18/04/2016 by floroy1942

According to news reports ISIL are moving into Libya in ever-increasing numbers and this does not bode well for Europe. They are being slowly beaten in Syria and Iraq and it makes sense for them to try and take over another country.

ISIL5yearMapLibya is already rocked by conflicting parties who wish to control the country and now ISIL are joining the fray. With their tactics they are sure to increase their influence over areas where they already hold a great deal of control like Benghazi, Sirte and Tripoli among others. All coastline towns and cities.

They have for some time been attacking the oil fields in Libya, intent on gaining control of the oil output from the country.

The worrying thing about ISIL gaining control of Libya, is the fact that now the border with Turkey has all but been sealed for refugees, the main route open to them is crossing the Mediterranean from Libya to Italy. If ISIL gain control of this country we will see the flow more than double over the next year.

Part of the problem is that they will surely ship many of their terrorists among the refugees as they have last year and this. If this happens then the number of terrorists attacks on the European mainland will increase drastically.

ISIL In Action

Into The Water Until They Drown

From events up until now it is clear that Europe is one of their main targets for these attacks, and the more of them that get here the wider will be their plans of operation. As we have seen from the Paris and Brussels attacks, they do not carry out them themselves but persuade local Muslims to do their dirty work for them. This makes it difficult for the European law enforcement forces to track down and eliminate these people and so they live to plan fresh attacks.

Due to the warring factions in Libya, and the fact that there is not a single government controlling the country, this makes things easier for ISIL because defence against them cannot be properly coordinated.

They are losing ground slowly from the attacks by Syrian and Iraqi forces in these two countries, and with the help of other nations like Russia, the USA and some European countries they will eventually be thrown out of these lands. But, if they end up taking Libya it will start all over again.

The Last UN Joint Action

The Last UN Joint Action

I said many times in the past that the best solution for all the world’s terror group problems is for the United Nations to get off its fat backside and take some positive action against this menace that has spread across more than 100 countries in the world. All the groups causing so many problems are Muslim and it is time for a concerted effort to stop it cold.

All countries that have an insurgency problem should call on the U.N. to do something about it, for the main responsibility of the U.N. is to ensure world peace. Since the Korean War that has become a joke, so if this means an international U.N. force must go from country to country and wipe them out, so be it. A concerted action of this magnitude would put an end to this reign of terror.

If it means gathering an international force like they did in the Korean War in 1950, then so be it. The ordinary people have a right to live without the constant threat of terrorism.

The massive influx of refugees into Europe has been caused solely by ISIL, and if an international U.N. force went into the Middle East and Africa and wiped them out they could all return home and take the tremendous pressure off European countries.  The same can be said for Boko Haram in Nigeria and al Shabab in Somalia, the Taliban in Afghanistan and many other groups.

Lier!!!!

Lier!!!!

The sad thing is, the commitment of the U.N. to ensure world peace has become a joke and is farthest from their minds. All they have done is verbally ‘Condemn’ the actions of these people, but take no action whatsoever! I wonder what they would do against aliens if they attacked our planet? Probably ‘Condemn’ them too!

The United Nations Is Defunct!

Posted in Al Quada, America, Britain, European Union, Immigrants, Insurgents, Islamic State, News, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 13/07/2015 by floroy1942

The world is now at a point in its history where decisive measures must be taken against Islamic terrorism, for it has now spread all across the globe. Country after country is being embroiled in a fight against Muslim extremists who are spreading their poison at an ever-increasing rate.

As I have already reported, Islamic State (I.S.) is making huge gains in Libya and have begun importing their fighters into Europe under the guise of refugees. When they are here in sufficient numbers all hell will break loose in towns and cities across Europe. When you consider that we already have in excess of 56 million Muslims living among us it could conceivably turn into a bloodbath on our streets.

The Aim Of Islamic State - But Who Thinks They Will Stop There.

The Aim Of Islamic State – But Who Thinks They Will Stop There.

Many people will scoff at the idea as they sit comfortably in their homes, but certain agencies across Europe know the truth, even though they are keeping quiet for the moment.

Ever since the 9/11 fiasco in New York, terrorism has advanced in leaps and bounds as more and more people want to see Islam rule the world. Far fetched? Certainly, but it has not stopped them trying. Terror groups have sprung up in so many countries across the world from the Far East to the western world that it is hard to keep count. Among the most successful to date is Islamic State who are trying to take over North Africa and the Middle East country by country.

Daily we hear of more and more Muslim youth leaving their comfortable homes in Europe to go and fight for I.S., but we don’t hear many stories of I.S. being beaten in Iraq, Syria or Libya. Now and then a temporary setback, but never defeated.

We have countries like the USA, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates among others carrying out bombing raids on I.S. which may be doing some good, but it is not enough to stop them, as has been proven. The only Army with any success against these terrorists are the Kurds who have pushed them back several times. The Iraqi Army is to a great extent useless against the fighters of I.S., for if they had fought like real soldiers since the beginning, the terrorists would have been beaten by now.

So now we have a situation where I.S. is continually getting stronger, and have almost completed their aim of gaining a country bordering the Mediterranean Sea in preparation for an attack on the European continent.

With us taking in hundreds of thousands of ‘refugees’ we have put out the welcome mat for I.S. and they are making full use of it.

So who should Europe and the world turn to……The United Nations?

These people sit in their ivory tower and talk, talk, talk until they ultimately come to a unanimous agreement to verbally ‘Condemn’ the actions of I.S., Boko Haram and al Shebab etc.

So Sayeth The Leader Of The United Nations

So Sayeth The Leader Of The United Nations

I can just imagine the reaction of the leaders of these terrorist organizations, as I am sure you can too!

It is way past time that these people got off their fat backsides and started putting together a multi-national force to wipe out these terrorists in all countries under threat before things really get out of hand.

This is a world problem and one of the greatest dangers to face mankind since the Second World War, and if someone does not do something soon it will get ten times worse.

It is not the responsibility of countries like the USA and NATO countries to guarantee the safety of the world, that job is firmly in the hands of the United Nations as intended by Winston Churchill when he first proposed setting it up.

It is indeed ominous that we have not heard a word from this august body for months, even after the massacre of thousands of civilians at the hands of Boko Haram and Islamic State. They have to be told by the nations of the world in no uncertain terms that to verbally ‘condemn’ the tactics of these groups is just not going to do any good.

I live in hope, for a beard does not suit me, and I would hate to see my wife and children dressed in a burka.

Europe Safe From Islam? – Think Again!

Posted in Britain, David Cameron, England, Europe, European Union, Immigration, Islamic State, News, Sharia Law, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 09/07/2015 by floroy1942

It totally baffles me how European governments can think we are safe from Muslim terrorists. “Oh we don’t have any trouble here except for the odd attack now and then!” Well think again, because the holocaust could well be coming and there may well be blood on the streets as predicted by Enoch Powell.

Where Do They Come From?

Where Do They Come From?

Europe is currently taking in hundreds of thousands of refugees from Libya and the Middle East and we really have no idea who they are. It is certain that many are members of I.S. who have come here to begin preparing for an I.S. invasion from the inside.

A Syrian I.S, operative has openly claimed that the group have already sent 4,000 members disguised as refugees, and the numbers are growing day by day. He said the I.S. is taking full advantage of the generosity of European nations in taking in so many refugees and will continue to do so. Most are coming through Turkey, crossing at unguarded areas of the border and then making their way north through E.U. countries. Two Turkish refugee-smugglers backed up the claims made by the I.S. Syrian operative.

A spokesman for I.S., Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, praised the recent terror attacks in Australia, Belgium and France. “We repeat our call to Muslims in Europe, the infidel West, and everywhere to target the Crusaders in their home countries and wherever they find them.”

I said some time ago in a blog that once I.S. gain control of Libya they will be coming in our direction, and this proves I was right.

I.S. Taking Control Of Libya

I.S. Taking Control Of Libya

There will be some tough times ahead for Europe in the coming years as these people infiltrate the E.U., for it is sure they will attack at random and at unspecified times until they are either beaten or have attained their goal.

It may well begin with random attacks on members of our governments, car bombs in crowded places or outright assassinations but come it will unless we do something to stop this massive flow of refugees.

Do We Really Want To See This On The Streets Of Europe?

Do We Really Want To See This On The Streets Of Europe?

One formidable threat from I.S. taken from telephone intercepts states that they will send 500,000 migrants across the Mediterranean in a huge fleet of boats at the same time as a ‘psychological weapon’. I do find that a little hard to believe, but either way, it is a threat our governments cannot ignore. If it did take place many would drown and the rescue services would be completely overwhelmed.

Other newspapers have stated that most Muslims currently living in Europe do sympathise with the aims of Islamic State, and would most certainly like the whole of Europe to be a Muslim State, with Sharia Law of course. We don’t have to look for the enemy for it is already here, living among us.

Now let me make it very plain that I am not racist in any way and do not advocate vigilante action against peaceful Muslims who live among us. I will say however, that it would be nice to see them properly integrate with our way of live, learn the langauge and become creditable members of society, but unfortunately this has not happened. I freely admit that I do not like the way they have taken over whole districts in towns and cities and turned them into something like their own country, for this is not what you do when someone gives you a home from home.

A Muslim Imams Message To All

A Muslim Imams Message To All

It is clear that not all the Muslims living among us will heed the call from I.S. when it comes, but sad to say, a significant number will. We already have Muslim agitators like Anjem Choudary who uses any excuse to turn Muslims against us, and there are those that demonstrate daily on our streets, and there are are no doubt very many young Muslims who will ‘pick up the sword’ and turn it against us given the chance.

Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I am not going to say anything to those who will scoff at this post and consider it rubbish, but as I see it, ‘the writing is on the wall’ and we should not be afraid to see it.

I also have to mention the defunct United Nations that is doing absolutely nothing about the crisis, or the terrorist wars going on across the world. If they wait until Europe is overrun it will be too late.

I do firmly believe that there is a serious threat to the European way of life from I.S., and if governments continue to ignore it then God help us all!

The Shame of Islam In Libya

Posted in Al Quada, America, Britain, Christianity, Human Rights, Islamic Revolution, Religion, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , on 12/09/2012 by floroy1942

An Innocent Victim

I read today with disgust the breaking news that among others, the American ambassador to Libya was killed in an attack by Muslims on the US Embassy in Benghazi, all because an Israeli Jew living in America produced a film that in their view, insulted the Prophet Mohammed. With yet another disgraceful crime being committed by the fanatics who make up the Islamic religion I cannot help but ask; “Just How Long Are The Free Peoples Of The World Going To Stand For This?”

As free people living in a free country with the inalienable right of free speech, how much longer are we going to sit on our hands and accept these attacks on our culture and way of life. We regard free speech as sacrosanct, meaning that right or wrong, everybody has the right to say what they think on any topic, so why should we accept some outside group of maniacs killing someone for using that right.

Really!

The Muslim clerics tell us continuously that Islam is a religion of peace, but tell that to the American ambassador and his staff in Benghazi. Tell that to the countless Christians who have been murdered and in some cases burnt alive to satisfy the blood-lust of the Muslim population. Time and again the vicious and evil side of this religion hits the headlines across the world, often with flash mobs killing indiscriminately.

It makes me wonder if this ‘flash mob’ idea isn’t the latest tactic of al Qaeda, using ordinary Muslims to do their dirty work and ferment trouble. Otherwise, in my opinion it can only be Muslim clerics who are inciting their followers into acts of hatred against other religions.

The Holy Book Of Islam

A fine example is the case of Risha the young Pakistani girl recently jailed for ‘desecrating the Koran’. But the local Muslim cleric was arrested later and accused of deliberately planting pages of the Koran in a sack of rubbish she carried. He admitted to wanting to rid the area of undesirables, i.e. the small Christian minority in the town.

Make no mistake, Muslim clerics hold the power when it comes to violence perpetrated by these flash mobs and terrorists. In England there have been countless proven cases when bright young Muslims with a good future ahead of them have been persuaded by such men to strap on a bomb and blow up innocent people.

The Mob Outside The Embassy – Faces Filled With Such Hatred! Why?

I am fully aware, and accept that not all clerics are like the one in Pakistan, and in no way wish to insult the Islamic religion. I will therefore cheer loudly for all clerics who do what they can to promote peace, but as the months and years go by, and non-Muslims are forced to accept more and more of these direct assaults on their culture, I get the impression that the peace-loving clerics are a distinct minority. I have already written that I believe the vast majority of Muslims secretly agree with all the terrorist attacks on the West, for I never hear a voice crying out against them from any Muslim, especially the clerics.

Leaving A Legacy Of Hatred

When bin Laden committed the treacherous attack of 9/11 he opened up a whole new world among Muslims, fermenting a hatred among them for anything non-Muslim and the belief that Islam will one day rule the world. There can be little doubt that we will all be living with the legacy  of one man’s hatred for a very long time.

2011 – A Good Year?

Posted in Britain, Environment, Spain, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , , on 23/12/2011 by floroy1942

It’s Christmas again and you have to wonder where the year went. For many of us this last 12 months has been somewhat of a trial, what with the economic crisis in Europe and the introduction of austerity measures, the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ that has brought death and destruction to many families in many countries, and not forgetting the various disasters worldwide.  Soon another year will be starting and we can only hope it will  be better than 2011.

February 24 2011 - New Zealand

Everyone lives in hope that things will improve, and the world can settle down once more to a period of comparative peace. The last year has seen more than its share of death and heartache, but when all is said and done, we do this to ourselves. Without dictators there would be no need for  an ‘Arab Spring’, and without greedy bankers and corrupt politicians there would be no need for austerity measures, but we are after all human and no-one is perfect.

February 26 2011 - Libya

As we see in countries like Egypt, there is no point in overturning a dictator if he is to be replaced by a military that will not bow to the will of the people. It is after all, the people that make a country, not governments or its landscape. In other arab countries there has been continued unrest because the will of the people has not been heard. Libya is still engaged in sporadic fighting since the fall of Gaddafi, and of course in Syria the story is far from over. If you wish to count all the countries that are embroiled in unrest you would run out of fingers and toes. In Iraq, now the last troops have taken their leave, we have secular fighting that looks set to continue for a long time, until one or other comes out on top, but as usual its the common people who suffer.

If you look to countries that are not actually fighting among themselves, you will find a long list that has suffered riots and/or major demonstrations over the past year. Chief among them Greece, Italy, Spain, America and even Russia. Most of these events are due to people protesting about the austerity measures put in place by their governments in an effort to try and balance the books. That they should need to do this is only due to their incompetence over the last five years, for they failed to live up to the golden rule; i.e. “Never spend what you don’t have”!

October 19 2011 - Greece

All today’s monetary problems stem from the fact that once political parties get in power they want to stay there, and will promise anything to achieve that. They say “Power Corrupts” and that is never more true than today. The governments of countries like Greece and Italy have raised salaries and encouraged massive tax fraud etc. just to keep the populace happy and themselves in  power. As most European countries are now finding out, eventually you have to pay the piper! I was going to include Spain in that category, but in truth, here the problem is massive inefficiency everywhere, from government down to the local shop. How these people ever had the audacity to think they could invade England in 1588 defies logic! Better they had stayed in South America where they only had to fight the local indian tribes!

Friday March 11 2011 - Fukushima

This last year has also seen its share of natural disasters in the shape of earthquakes, tsunami’s, drought and major flooding. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their lives in these catastrophes, and in truth we have no-one to blame but ourselves. For as long as we continue to destroy our world piecemeal it will only get worse. As I have often said in the past, we are entering a new phase of mankind, and in the words of the ‘Bard’: “We ain’t seen nothing yet!”

Indonesia - Rain Forest Destruction 2011

However, the optimists among us will still hope that the next year in man’s evolution will see an improvement over the current troubles that beset our world. It can happen, if only people would think a little less of themselves and a little more of others. It is time to put away self! With more cooperation and an end to the constant power struggle that afflicts our leaders, the world could once again become a peaceful place where everyone can benefit. If we ourselves stop judging everything by ‘what is best for us’ we can go a long way to solving the major problems that beset society in most countries of the world. If nations like Brazil, China and many other Far Eastern countries can stop their constant attacks on our environment, and everyone can finally agree on measures to cut carbon emissions, maybe we can eventually slow the onset of global warming and reduce the natural disasters that plague our planet ever more frequently.

In the short and long term it is up to everyone, be we banker or beggar, to make the necessary changes in our lives that will bring about what we desire most, a happy and carefree life.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderfully happy Christmas, and of course, a fruitful and happy New Year.

Rebellion – The Spring Of Discontent

Posted in Arab, Christianity, Demonstration, Elections, Muslim, President, Religion, Summit, UN, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 23/04/2011 by floroy1942

Ever since the world ushered in 2011, with the hopes of a fruitful year and a return to economic stability, it seems the pendulum has swung the other way. The prospect of global economic recovery seems as far away as ever, and the news has been dominated by country after country being racked by protests and regime changes, albeit mostly in the arab world.

A New Year With Renewed Hope

As we all know by now, Tunisia was the spark that ignited the trail of discontent across North Africa and on into the Middle East. Protesters in both Tunisia and Egypt have successfully rid themselves of an oppresive regime and may be turning to democracy, but we shall have to wait and see.

Further afield we have seen Libya, Syria, Yemen and The United Arab Emirates among others all suffering civilian unrest. In the case of Libya, outright war between the populace and the government is on-going with Syria heading in the same directiuon. The protesters all demand the same thing, release from an oppressive regime that has held power too long.

Libya: http://youtu.be/nqJgBhDkekc

It has always been the nature of dictators not to relinquish power once they have achieved it, a fact that still holds true today. Many who have, or perhaps will be toppled in the near future, have all held power for many decades and it often occurs that time makes such people lose contact with those they rule.

Libyan Protest

History teaches us that people will accept such a situation with passive acceptance – initially, but over time, especially if their living standards deteriorate, the discontent grows until it suddenly bursts forth in uncontrollable rage. Poor living standards are a great driver to action for those living in oppressed countries.

Desperate measures are taken by some rulers like Gaddafi of Libya and Assad of Syria, who attempt to quell the unrest by force of arms, but as we have seen in both these countries, it only makes the protesters more determined. Libya is now racked by civil war, and even with the help of a UN resolution and the actions of NATO, we are approaching a stalemate.

There are indications the war in Libya will take on a new twist that may well cause headaches at NATO Headquarters. The latest news quotes government sources as saying the eviction of the rebels from Misrata will be left to local tribes who have suffered loss of trade with the city since the uprising began. The army is said to be retreating from Misrata and negotiations will take place between tribal leaders and the rebels. If the tribes do in fact attack the rebel positions in the city it will be civilians against civilians, so where will that leave the coalition forces and the UN Mandate?

Syria Defiance

Meanwhile, Syria is seeing daily deaths among the protesters at the hands of the security forces. International involvement has only taken place in Libya, and it seems unlikely at this time that such action will be repeated in other countries.

Syria: http://youtu.be/qb7Irlq60Ew

Ivory Coast and Nigeria have also been trouble spots for the last few weeks but the reasons there are different.

The Ivorian Protagonists

In Ivory Coast the dispute arose from the failure of its President, Lauren Gbagbo to accept defeat when he lost the election. Fighting has been going on there for some time as forces loyal to Gbagbo sought to prevent the elected President Ouattara from taking office. Eventually Gbagbo was defeated, but now Ouattara is finding it hard to reign in his troops and stop fighting between Gbagbo supporters and his own. Once again, the UN has made pleas for calm which have fallen on deaf ears.

Ivory Coast: http://youtu.be/Y0Lpmdzt6mk

A similar situation is developing in Nigeria where the defeated presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhuri, refuses to accept his defeat against Goodluck Johnson in an election that was cleared by international observers as being fair. Should the violence continue, there is a chance the Muslim north of the country will be at war with the Christian south.

Sectarian Violence in Nigeria

The difference between this altercation and others seems to be religion, for like Muslims everywhere, they wish to dominate, and the north will not be satisfied until it rules the whole of the country purely for the purposes of turning it into a Muslim state. A story we have all heard before.

The UN is still confining itself to useless pleas for calm and a cessation of violence in the various nations currently in the news. This is standard practice for the international body that rarely sees fit to actually take action to prevent bloodshed and war.

Nigeria: http://youtu.be/QzFQ3zrW7QA

The United Nations was formed as a body with the ideal of ending war and insurrection in any country but has over the years been found wanting. The various nations have almost always found it impossible to come to a decision to end violence, for each country must first look to its own interests before embarking on any agreement to intervene in trouble spots around the world.

The Libyan conflict serves as a prime example, for many countries could not bring themselves to endorse Resolution 1973 until it was too late to be of any strategic use, perhaps because they did not wish to offend the Middle East nations for fear of jeopardising their oil imports. Now with Syria and Yemen they again cannot agree for the same reason, and content themselves with platitudes and pleas for a cessation of the violence, all of which go unheard.

A Sign Of UN Impotence At Ending Wars?

It is obvious these nations will not take any notice, for it has become a power struggle with the elite not wishing to relinquish their grip, and the protesters refusing to accept anything less.

Countries like Russia and China who hold veto powers, refuse to allow any UN action to stop the bloodshed for reasons of their own, which is most likely an attempt to gain influence in the area.

There is little doubt the UN, founded with such lofty ideals, is failing in its mandate in a disastrous fashion, for it was intended to end wars and provide a platform for the settlement of international disputes. Something it has never managed to do, and in my opinion, never will. Meanwhile, ordinary people die needlessly!

Should We Arm The Libyan Rebels?

Posted in Al Quada, Arab, Britain, England, Europe, Muslim, Obama, President, Security Council, Terrorism, UK, UN, United Nations, USA with tags , , , , , , , , on 30/03/2011 by floroy1942

President Obama has raised the question of whether or not the Coalition should arm the rebels fighting Gaddafi. That I fear is very dangerous ground!

M136 AT4 Light Anti-Tank Weapon

First of all, arm them with what? Modern anti-tank weapons (i.e. missiles)would be a good idea, and perhaps some artillery pieces, maybe even a tank or two, but what then? Do we follow this up with technical experts to teach them how to fire the darned things.

AT4 Anti-Tank Video:

 http://www.youtube.com/embed/Q3xsMqHu56g

While it is without doubt in the interests of many countries to see Gaddafi gone, the road to achieving that is a slippery slope unless great caution is exercised. The objective of the UN mandate is clear; “Protect civilian lives from aggressive action by Gaddafi’s forces”. Arming the rebels does not, in my view, come under that heading.

The Security Council Votes

That whole scenario would be going way over the top of the UN Resolution, and bring down upon the Coalition severe condemnation from the vultures sitting on the sidelines sharpening their long knives waiting for us to trip up, make no mistake.

The original intention was good, and you can forget all the ‘lefty’ accusations of ‘it’s all about the oil’. The Coalition has now put itself in the position of being on trial, certainly within the Arab world and the African continent.

The Arab League Waits....

The Middle East countries are sitting on the fence waiting to see if the West will (a) stick to the mandate, or (b) meddle in Libyan internal affairs by actively assisting the rebels, and (c) try to enforce democracy afterwards. We are coming very close to the limits of the Mandate and may even already have overstepped them by actively assisting the rebels with the air strikes.

It has become abundantly clear that the Libyan dictator will not go quietly, he will fight to the last man and will have to be removed by force. If he does win, you can bet his vengeance will not only be levelled at the rebels and Benghazi, but also the Western Alliance. He is quite capable of opening his door to al Quada and giving them a base from which to operate.

Rebels In Retreat....Again!

The sad thing is the rebels do not seem capable of winning without more intervention by the Coalition, particularly in light of the reverses they have suffered in recent days.

Rebel Retreat:

 http://www.youtube.com/embed/_rrDAt-ejL4

Apart from the fact they are a ‘rag-tag army’ of civilians without any military training whatsoever, they have no leadership, no chain of command, or coördination of effort. In the long-term, they have little or no chance of success against a properly trained army such as the one that fights for Gaddafi, and no amount of aerial bombardment by the coalition will change that.

I reiterate what I have said in earlier posts, i.e. that the UN resolution came far too late. Had it been granted even one week earlier the situation on the ground could have been much different. But there is ‘no point in crying over spilt milk’ as they say, we must make the best of what we have, which to be honest, is not a lot.

Is He Giving Us Two Fingers?

It remains to be seen what the eventual outcome of the affair will be, but I have a nasty feeling the Alliance will not come out of it ‘smelling like roses’. There is still a lot of work to be done, and a lot of it depends on how far the UN, the Arab League and the African Union are prepared to back NATO and the Alliance in achieving the removal of Gaddafi.
