In a damning report, the British House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee has blasted Cameron for overthrowing Colonel Gaddafi without having any idea of who the rebels were or what the effect of overthrowing the Libyan state would be.

David Cameron's 'ill-conceived' military intervention in Libya fuelled the migrant crisis and spurred the growth of ISIS, MPs warn today.

In a devastating verdict, the Commons foreign affairs committee savages the former prime minister's judgment in rushing to war in 2011, saying the intervention was based on 'erroneous assumptions'.

The cross-party committee accuses Mr Cameron of ignoring military chiefs and a lack of reliable intelligence to pursue an 'opportunistic policy of regime change' in Libya.

And it says he gave little thought to how Libya would fare following the removal of dictator Colonel Gaddafi, setting the scene for the country's descent into chaos.

Wonder if he had advance notice of that report when he took up his office of profit?

Cameron will feel bad for a short while and then forget all about it.

The sad fact is that Western governments do not see brown skinned people as real people. Bombing them is not regarded in any way the same thing as bombing white people would be.

About 1:30 today.

But Great Britain's a force for their own good in the world.

Any chance of a review of their backing of the killers of thousands of children in Yemen?

oday's report says Mr Cameron's failings in Libya means Britain now has a 'particular responsibility' to assist the war-ravaged country and help deal with the flood of migrants heading from its shores to Europe.
Agenda much?

The BBC and Guardian were cheerleaders for this and still haven't pulled backed from advocating the overthrow of the Damascus govt.
Incompetent Hillary was leading the baying neo-con fanatics in this destruction of what was once Africa's most affluent country and in comparison with most of the continent only experiencing periodic bouts of minor instability.
This really was, well it's ongoing, a shameful imperialist act of aggression. Atonement should begin with Gadaffi's son being allowed to return in free-elections and restore stability to his ruined nation.

Divil the bit of him, he'll simply blame whoever is behind that report for not having their facts right - just like the rest of them.

The UN sanctioned a no fly zone. It never sanctioned attacking the Libyan state and its forces. The war on Libya was entirely illegal. Secret tapes and the Clinton e-mails show that the Americans knew that Gaddafi was not targeting civilians. Russian satellites showed that the Libyan air force was not being used against civilians. Even the head of the rebel NTC, Mahmoud Jibril, later admitted on Libyan TV that Gaddafi had ordered the Libyan Army not to use force against civilians.

Of the 3,000 emails released from Hillary Clinton’s private email server in late December 2015, about a third were from her close confidante Sidney Blumenthal, the attorney who defended her husband in the Monica Lewinsky case. One of these emails, dated April 2, 2011, reads in part:

Qaddafi’s government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver . . . . This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA).

In a “source comment,” the original declassified email adds:

According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya. According to these individuals Sarkozy’s plans are driven by the following issues:

1 A desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production,

2 Increase French influence in North Africa,

3 Improve his internal political situation in France,

4 Provide the French military with an opportunity to reassert its position in the world,

5 Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi’s long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa

Conspicuously absent is any mention of humanitarian concerns. The objectives are money, power and oil.
