Libya Redux

The Libyan Prime Minister, Ali Zeidan, has warned of foreign intervention after a region of the country took over several commercial sea ports, declared an independent oil company and shut off gas pipelines to Italy.
Libya’s Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said: 'The international community cannot tolerate a state in the middle of the Mediterranean that is a source of violence, terrorism and murder'.
He then warned Libyans of a possible 'intervention of foreign occupation forces' in order to protect civilians under Chapter VII of the UN Charter as attacks in Tripoli and the Eastern part of the country intensified.
Zeidan has given the rebels 10 days to clear the oil facilities otherwise 'we will take measures' he warned.
So the rebels we backed are now turning their weapons on each other and we may have to go back in to fight the same people who we were arming and training a few years ago. Who would have thought that?
