Cameron will let Gaddafi stay in bid to end Libya campaign quickly

Cameron will let Gaddafi stay in bid to end Libya campaign quickly

The problem is compounded by the timing of Ramadan in which Muslims cannot eat or drink during daylight hours. This year Ramadan begins around the start of August, lasts for 30 days and is expected to bring a lull in the fighting on both sides.

Mr Cameron wants Britain's role in Libya to be over by the time of the Conservative Party Conference in October and the new Parliamentary session.

"At the moment we are embroiled in two foreign conflicts: Afghanistan which we can do nothing about and Libya which we can," said a Government official. "If that means altering our insistence that Colonel Gaddafi has to leave Libya then so be it."

Speaking yesterday after talks with the French Foreign Minister, Alain Juppé, William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, repeated Britain's demand for "Colonel Gaddafi to go". But tellingly he did not suggest that he had to leave the country: "We are absolutely clear that at the end of the day, Gaddafi is going to have to abandon power, all military and civil responsibility, and then it will be for the Libyan people themselves to decide what (his) fate will be either inside Libya or outside Libya."

prez is irrelevant

O-con-me demanded Gaddafi must go and go now.

HE screwed the pooch when Boehner waved the red flag at him and he took the bait. Now he's gone to the American People, and asked them to call their congressman.

Will they? The ones he has organized and waiting are as we speak.

Will you call your congressman and senators please?

Tell them you've had enough pussyfootin round, dammit! Get on with the gettin on.

Bring our boys home and stop spending the money!

Oh! And file the articles of impeachment too!

Britain will 'let' Gaddafi

Britain will 'let' Gaddafi stay!?

Where the fuck do these pricks think they have the right to dictate whether the leader of a country (who has the support of almost the whole nation) stays or goes.

Murdering bastards!

... and that liar William Hague really angers me. Send the troops into Tripoli and watch them their arses handed to them.
