Even just in the short space since last night, Operation Mermaid Dawn is in full swing.
Operation Mermaid dawn is the name for the final…hopefully… assault on the Libyan capital of Tripoli by the rebel forces. This could very well be the end of the 6 month civil war in Libya.
“There has been no call for British troops from National Transitional Council forces and, indeed, they go out of their way to talk about how this liberation of their country must be Libyan, and everything about the work of the National Transitional Council and those who we now recognise as the legitimate authority in Libya, has been about Libyans doing things for themselves. The only participation of forces from outside has been to protect civilians and to take action against the regime where that has been threatening civilians.
