France admits arming Libyan rebels

#1


France has become the first country inside the Nato alliance to confirm publicly it is providing arms directly to the Libyan rebels fighting Colonel Muammer Gaddafi, parachuting rocket launchers, assault rifles, and anti-tank missiles to groups fighting south of Tripoli, the capital.

Who knows into whose hands these weapons might fall, IMO it is a foolhardy step to take.

Would anyone be really surprised if the UK was to admit doing something similar.If we want the rebels to win and do it quickly we need to improve the odds in their favour.Seeing as our government got us involved we may as well try and bring it to a speedy conclusion before too many more people get killed.

I am afraid this governments plan to drop a few bombs and Gadhafi would scuttle off like a frightened rabbit have failed miserably, so the next step could well be that the British taxpayer will pay for weapons to be given into the hands of god knows who, this foray into the unknown is turning into a right f..k up but who is surprised.
