Cameron: Follow That Camel

"Aircraftman Cameron and Sarkozy are in Benghazi taking the applause of cheering tribal warriors. Sarkozy looks a bit nervous, as though scared he might meet the English rugby team at a dwarf hurling evening. Cameron looks a bit dazed, probably not sure what applause is. Aaah, that heady moment of triumph! Just like George Bush and Mission Accomplished!

"Now those delightful oil contracts to sort out.

"Elsewhere, Libyans who foolishly fail to agree with them are being bombed to pieces by NATO. Presumably, once anyone who might hold a different view is dead, it will be safe to hold a democratic election."

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan.


  1. Even though Murray sounds wacko here he wrote a good memoir about his ambassadorship, worth checking out.

  2. Why do you think that sounds wacko?

  3. Inferring that Libyans are being bombed on account of their opinions (failing to agree etc) - seems a bit slanted.

    I'll wait and see about the oil contracts but that seems a leap imo.


  5. This just in!
