There was an odd thing when it came to Libya and Gaddafi as others thought hey this is going to be a domino affect right across the middle east because of Egypt and Tunisia etc. but in reality Gaddafi is one of the few people that had actually prepared for things going wrong in his country which is why the rebels are pretty much a lost cause and the Western media has already abandoned the way they pushed the media to now sitting on the fence from what was a rebel revolution overthrowing the dictator.
I played the fact the UK were sending diplomats to the rebel side purely because its an odd thing as it may be easy to lay cards on the table “if you win” but in reality the rebel units are out gunned and Gaddafi has hardened mercenaries pouring to help him offered $1000 a day welcome to the Western dream.. money = freedom or the ability to avoid being overthrown.
Thing is Obama in the U.S. is being pushed by media to interfere when its of little U.S. interest and the UK government already had contracts with Gaddafi is it any benefit if he loses? The odd thing is how people don’t understand the links between the UK and Libya and they aren’t short lived it showed in the media when they pushed of all the places in revolt Tobruk because for those not aware of world war two history it was a very important battle in history which is why I believe that location was pushed in the media because many people knew of the location and the fact it was a siege by overwhelming force. Little bit odd in this scenario though unless pro Gaddafi as it won’t stand on the battlefield in the same way which is why we are seeing the hardened push to dismount rebellion.
Money these days can buy you the best troops and this is why there are troops pouring in from former Russian states as well as African nations little pockets of rebellion supported for over a decade by Libya, its not all short term either as the media looks to think its all about the $ but at the same time having a leader who will back you as a rebel group in another country you can’t afford to lose your sponser which will no doubt have a positive affect in many places as the rebel forces are busy in Libya meaning other nations should have a short period of time to be proactive in stopping their return.
