at f***ing last

The UN Security Council has backed a no-fly zone over Libya and “all necessary measures” short of an invasion “to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas”.

The UK, France and Lebanon proposed the council resolution, with US support.
There are reports of celebrations in Benghazi on hearing this news, but we can only hope that this action is not too late to prevent the crushing of the uprising against the dictatorship.
Countries voting yes: Britain, France, USA, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, Gabon, Lebanon, Nigeria, Portugal and South Africa.
Countries voting no: None.
Countries abstaining: Russia, China, India, Germany and Brazil

At the time of writing Libyan air space closed, French military briefing media that air strikes may take place within hours.

Dany "Le Rouge" Cohn-Bendit interviewed on i-tele this morning, says Sarko is right to support military action and that France needs a strong military and an activist approach to world affairs.

Elections in France on Sunday.  Sarko is mortally afraid of the Front National, whose foreign policy, such as it is, is isolationist.  Also Sarko is not the corrupt spineless Chirac, now rightly on trial for stealing the people's money.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it peeps.

Nothing quite like a bit of bombing the baddies just before an election. Seems to improve your chances no end.

The fact that the back stabbing cheese eating surrender monkey French backed this is suspect.

Clearly they have more pressing concerns than where they can off load their old Mirage jet fighters.

Gideon Mack, clearly you are very au fait on is happening across the pond. Do enlighten us on what these " back stabbing cheese eating surrender monkey French" are up to. Does Sarko eat cheese?? Thought he was of hungarian heritage...

Gideon also put this on Richard Willis' blog, and was so pleased with his insight he put it here too!
I am always in the vanguard when comes to mocking the French, and indeed am waiting to know when we will sink their fleet to make sure Gaddafi doesn't get his hands on it, but they have taken a lead here that I am glad to follow. Aux armes, les citoyens!

Toulon was a brave act against a cowardly leadership.

Anonymous - clearly more au fait than you are.

The 5+5 dialogue between France and Libya covers many industries including power plants, education, medicines and gas so much so that the concept is bigger than the people it invloves - i.e. Gaddafi.
