Have Hague and Cameron gone completely barking mad?
British military officers will be sent to Libya to advise rebels fighting Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s forces, the UK government has said.
Foreign Secretary William Hague said the group would be deployed to the opposition stronghold of Benghazi.
The BBC understands that 10 UK officers will provide logistics and intelligence training, part of a joint British and French operation.
Mr Hague stressed that the officers would not be involved in any fighting.
When the UN Security Council passed its resolution on Libya in March, foreign military action on the ground was specifically ruled out.
He said: “The [UK] National Security Council has decided that we will now move quickly to expand the team already in Benghazi to include an additional military liaison advisory team.
“This contingent will be drawn from experienced British military officers.”
It’s already been established that the so-called ‘rebels’ are in fact heavily infiltrated by al-Qaeda terrorists. So just why is Britain directly assisting an Islamist/terrorist venture with military forces?
Anyone? Perhaps we should all just blow ourselves up and have done with it.

Another ‘Wrong Kind of Muslim’ attack against the Ahmadiyya sect – this time in in Moderate, Progressive™ Indonesia:
The military denied on Tuesday that it had ordered the Siliwangi command in West Java to encourage mainstream Muslims to occupy Ahmadiyah mosques and preach “the true path” of Islam.
The denial follows statements by one of the Army’s top generals, Maj. Gen. Moeldoko, who had called on Muslims to refrain from physical violence and acts of vandalism, and instead conduct “an attack of prayer rugs” in mosques belonging to the beleaguered minority Islamic sect.
In what human rights watchdogs have called a clear attempt to forcibly convert Ahmadis, Moeldoko, the head of the Siliwangi Military Command, said earlier this month that it was better to avoid violence and instead get the Ahmadis to open up their mosques to mainstream Muslims [ahem - Ed. ].
“I ask all of you [Muslims] to sit inside their mosques, which are exclusive for Ahmadis,” he said. “Let us fill their mosques with Islamic activities and the correct teachings of Islam.” Read the rest of this entry »
