    Re: France formally recognises Libyan rebels' authority

    Sarkozy's just miffed that Gadaffi and Berlusconi didn't invite him to the poon party.

    Seriously, this is premature. The way things are going Gadaffi's going to be back in control of the whole country within a fortnight. Then what is France going to do?

    I do think it is a good thing but only if they step up and help get rid of the tyrant by arming the good guys. Only who are the good guys? I'm not real clear on who they are yet, or what they stand for. So far all we know is the want the bad guy out.

    I said a week ago Libya would suppress the rebellion. I dont think we should be involved. I think that should have been our very clearly stated message from the beginning...not...well...we'll...we'll just have to wait and see...what happens...and well...whichever side wins...well...we will...support...sort of...

    I know Obama is in a damned if you do/dont position. The smart play was to decisively decide not to decide and to publicly call on the UN and Europe/Africa/OPEC/ and the Arab states to engage and vow to support them to the same level they have supported us in the past.

    Re: France formally recognises Libyan rebels' authority

    Wow, never thought I would see this........

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy will propose air strikes on Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's command headquarters to EU leaders, a source close to discussions has told AFP.

    At an EU summit on the Libyan crisis, he will propose "striking an extremely limited number of points which are the source of the most deadly operations" by forces loyal to Gaddafi, the source, who asked not to be named, said on Thursday.
    and meanwhile, back at the home front.........

    WASHINGTON, March 10 (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton underscored on Thursday the need for international consensus on the next steps on Libya, saying any unilateral U.S. move could have unforeseeable consequences.

    Clinton also expressed deep doubts about proposals to set up a "no-fly" zone over Libya, saying previous no-fly zones set up over Iraq and Serbia had had little effect.

    Obama is being intelligent.
    The Government is slowing pushing out the rebels. They may not last.

    If Gaddafi survives. France and UK have lost all economic ties. Spain isn't looking too good.

    US is fine being neutral.

    UK hasn't supported the rebels yet. Nor Spain, and France is the only one to recognise the rebels' state.
