"question for Libyans". He though happened to have an answer to this. All my rebel sources are saying that the British government is by far the leading force in delaying Gaddafi's departure, as it has deliberately slowed down the NATO campaign with all the rules they have put in place. It is a mission to protect not to topple Gaddafi, bla bla. The plan, they say, and I partially agree, is to keep Libya divided in order to achieve more gains from the Libyan oil. Through the current division, they could achieve a lot, selling both sides weapons, getting great contracts from the rebels especially, as they will remain in need for French-British help. Very interesting analysis indeed, and I tend to see evidence every day pointing in that direction.
