Okay, so Barak O is very, very twitchy about being involved in yet another war in a Muslim country and is trying to divest himself of the overall control of operations in Libya. Fine, but this is essentially a NATO operation, like it or not. Only NATO had the command and control capability and the facilities to make the NFZ work, so let’s get real. All this political yadda, yadda about transferring control is an unnecessary distraction. Everybody knows the US is involved. They can hardly hide the fact. They’re in it up to their necks, so who commands the operation is an irrelevance. Oh, and despite the fact it’s a NATO operation, there is Arab involvement with Qatar and the UAE sending aircraft. For heaven’s sake, let’s do the job and let the Libyan people get on with determining their future.
An indecent haste?
