David Cameron

Gaddafi and David Cameron
Was anyone else uncomfortable about the posturing of David Cameron and William Hague in Tripoli today? Was it really necessary for them to enter into that rabble and what were they trying to prove?

It is not yet all over. They have not yet caught Colonel Gadaffi or his son Saif. The fighting is still continuing and yet Cameron and Hague are attending a victory party?  OK perhaps I am being mealy mouthed but I hate to see people gloating. We don't yet know the make up or the intentions of the rebel government. We don't yet know who is actually in charge. We have in effect taken sides in Bedouin politics so we backed one side against another or one tribe against another.

I realise that Libyan oil is important to us but when I saw Cameron today I had a flashback to Blair and Gaddafi. I find that happening more and more. Blair was never a socialist and Cameron is not a conservative but both know how to tweak an audience. It is not a route that Cameron should go down beause I still believe that one day the courts will catch up with Blair. We all know that he was guilty of so much but the lawyers may have to decide what to charge him with! It is a conundrum but how about my suggestion of treason.

I have read the suggestion that they were anxious to get there before Erdogan of Turkey - of "the mosques are our barracks, the minarets our swords......." fame.
He apparently is offering himself as the new middle east Leader. A fanciful attempt to revive the Islamist Ottoman Empire (caliphate).
He already went to Cairo.
So in some respects C & S were tactically right to go there asap.

I didn't like what they said and I am sceptical that their "warm welcome" will last much more than days or weeks.
Isn't the leader of the interim government (an erstwhile Al Q associate) making a play for compensation for alleged torture?

an update Bryboy. The actual quote was as follows
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, an Islamist populist once convicted of inciting religious hatred, once quoted a poem:

“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…”
He was quoting but he clearly believed it. He also tries to interfere in Germany to keep the Turkish immigrants there effectively still as Turkish citizens with prime loyalty to Turkey. A dangerous man.
