Is it Just Me?

You know, I was going to post something incisive about whats going on in the globe and how it relates to UK political policy, especially regarding our military.

But you know, for the life of me I can't make any sense of it.

David Cameron talks a good game: it may have got him the most votes in the election, but it doesn't wash with mad dictators. Especially at the same time as he's ruining our military capability.

Not that I think the "unrest" in North Africa was as spontaneous as the media would have us believe. Was it really coincidental that countries either side of Libya would have an outburst of democracy? Or was Libya the target? After all, Gadaffi is just another dictator sat on top of a huge oilfield like Saddam was.

My cynical mind runs through the possibility that the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt and the following regime changes were bankrolled and orchestrated in order to get more malleable governments in place in those countries, ready for a move on Libya?

And who exactly is bankrolling Gadaffi at the moment? He seems to have had a change in fortunes even after his global assets were siezed. It took a couple of days, which to my mind smells of deals being done with some other rich country.

My nose tells me there's more to all of this than meets the eye.

  1. The one thing Cameron did suggest which is within his capacity is to create a "No fly zone". He has already achieved it for the UK by his cuts to the RAF and destruction of the Fleet Air Arm.

  2. Absolutely. Its an irony that seems to be lost on the MSM.
