What happens in Libya is none of our business. Its ruler may be a bloodstained dictator. He may be the only alternative to a radical Islamic takeover. He may be both. But that is not our concern.
We are now effectively at was with Libya. The people there will not benefit from this. They will not be grateful. For us, the results will be more dead soldiers and a further radicalisation of the Moslems who live in England. It will not bring down the price of oil.
I welcome spending cuts on “defence”. I wish the whole of the army and air force could be shut down and replaced by a citizen militia. By removing any means for stupid and evil politicians like David Cameron to puff themselves up, nothing would tend to make this country saver.
