Britain to use military force in Libya

Source: Press TV

Amid the protestors shooting order by the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Britain and its allies are to impose military actions in the Libya's no-fly zone.

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron told the House of Commons that British could be involved in the Libya's civil war.

"If Gaddafi uses military force against his own people, the world cannot stand by. That is why we should be looking at a no-fly zone," Cameron said, adding that his country can use fighter jets in Libya's no-fly zone.

There has been a growing concern over the mass murder in Libya. Some reports have also sparked worries that Gaddafi might even use chemical weapons to kill Libyans.

In response to Cameron's talks, Gaddafi, who has already lost control of much of the country, said, "They [his people] love me, all my people love me…They would die to protect me."

Being in Tripoli, Libya's capital and home to a third of Libyans, Gaddafi said he would not quit.

There have been talks between Britain and US over arming rebel forces in Libya. Cameron also said, "If helping the opposition would somehow bring that about, it is certainly something we should be considering."

The no-fly zone had been used over Iraq and Bosnia war to stop the former regimes from bombarding civilians. It is said that Britain would fly Tornados and Typhoons from RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus.

The Chief of the Defence Staff Gen Sir David Richards is to manage British military actions in Libya.

It is also announced that foreign nationals would be evacuated largely by Wednesday as the next phase against Gaddafi. After freezing Gaddafi's assets last week, the European Union is to impose sanctions on Libyan government this week.
