Following quickly in the steps of France's President Nicolas Sarkozy, "GI" Dave Cameron was quick to jump into the fray ahead of US President Obama, begging France to reopen 'Lend Lease' in order to "borrow" some planes to enforce Britain's ambitious 'No Fly' Zone over embattled Libya.
With Quaddaffy thugs using jet fighters and tanks against the rag tag rebels armed with
a few AK-47's and some purloined anti-aircraft guns that came with no instructions, the rebels are getting their arse kicked as the Libyan air force is raining mayhem on the fighters in a country without any trace of cover, and threatening the country's rich oil fields.(ed. note: ahaaa...the PLOT thickens!)
Cameron, bowing to Lib-Dem Nicki Clegg, recently cut all of Britain's armed forces, grounded and made redundant all fighter craft and their pilots, and decommissioned the notable air craft carrier HMS Ark Royal, while continuing the contract on two new ones that will have no aircraft assigned to their decks upon completion in 2015 and assigned
'ferry duty' in the channel.
According to insiders close to 10 Downing, Cameron saw an opportunity to regain some diminished stature for his poor but once proud and mighty island country, by hanging on to France's coat tails and showing Obama and the US that, as one outsider commented,
'the mouse could still roar!"
France's war minister is said to be searching through their fleet of decommissioned Egyptian Mirage Fighters repatriated after the 6 day war, and may be considering sending a pair over to Dave as a good will gesture.
The British Air Ministry has referred all queries concerning volunteer pilots to the now
abandoned Libyan Embassy, where it is said several former Libyan fighter pilots granted asylum are picketing and 'might be' eager to return to their homeland and 'dump a load on Muammar!"
Back in Washington DC, President Obama has cautioned France and Britain against
'acting hastily and in a manner threatening human rights." Obama said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and his new Czar for Foreign Oil Interests Jeffrey Epstein, along with UK Trade Minister Prince Andrew, will be travelling to Egypt next week to interview potential new Libyan Despots who "speak English, understand capitalism, can run a chain of restaurants, a cement factory a Toyota Car distributorship and have good taste in young women."
A spokesman for Clinton said one of Harmid Karzai's immediate family will be on hand to
discuss financial terms, stock options, profit sharing, and pensions with the successful candidate.
