France recognized the futility of military operations in Libya

France recognized the futility of military operations in LibyaFrance recognized the futility of NATO’s military operation in Libya, stating the need for the opposing sides to begin direct negotiations to find a political solution. Such a call was made by the Minister of Defense of this country, Gerard Longuet, reports Reuters.


It is worth emphasizing that France was one of the initiators of Western intervention in the Libyan conflict and the first to launch air strikes against the military targets of the Muammar Gaddafi regime.

The words of Longuet sounded amid the growing discontent of the French over the protracted operation. On Tuesday, the government should give a detailed account of it in parliament, including the need to answer the most inconvenient questions of deputies. After that, they will vote either for the continuation of the operation or for its curtailment.

Nevertheless, in Paris they made it clear that the main goal is still the resignation of the Libyan leader. The insurgents fighting against his regime, for their part, insist that he leave power even before negotiations begin.

The operation, which began under the control of the United States and then transferred under the command of NATO, has lasted for almost four months. The participating countries that have been actively bombing the facilities of the Gaddafi regime all this time are at risk of being stumped, since the rebels who seized control of Libya in the east still do not know how to get to Tripoli.

The behind-the-scenes negotiation process is in principle, but the main stumbling block is the question of the future of Gaddafi. The International Criminal Court in The Hague issued a warrant for his arrest at the end of June. After that, the rebels claimed that it had closed the path to dialogue with him.

    When Kadaffi loses his position, then everything will pay off. The West will bewitchingly awaiting only this. At the same time, they will have oil and NATO’s reputation will not suffer much. "Well, we put the Colonel on his knees!" - they can say so. Such a colonel, Our farting-stools only need to learn.

    The French will remain shameful. After all, there was a chance to show off.

    The most equipped and strongest combined army in the world suffered its first serious defeat. And where .... in Libya ... With such bombing, the whole of Libya can be rolled out under the comb. If you conduct a small ... inconspicuous ... operation to supply air defense missile launchers .... uh ....... then the NATO would stop flying immediately. All the evil from impunity ... have not been received for a long time. ..and with the knee .... for the Chukhlu ...

    Andrei Parshev’s book, Why America Comes, predicts an attack on Iraq. Then to Libya. Then he has Syria and Iran.
    When evil goes unpunished, it continues to fulfill its plan.

    I read somewhere that in five days the Danish Air Force in the amount of 5 planes in Libya spent the entire stockpile of the country's bombs and borrowed from the Netherlands, which were present in Libya as many as 2 planes. And the Norms, having fought for 3 days, flew home, and the Norwegian minister said that for so long the country was not ready to fight. What NATO for verification is not as powerful as described
