    UPDATE: 2 Nimrod spy planes NOW safe in Cameron’s hands for another 3 months! So, what happened Mr Prime Minister? Events?

    Late this afternoon, with an eye on the Brussels meetings of NATO  and the EU today and tomorrow, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi announced that the time has come for “full-scale military action” against the rebels in Libya. Promising that his father’s regime will never, ever surrender he again said “We fight here in Libya. We die here in Libya.” Video and report here at the BBC.

    Saying that the Libyan people will never ever welcome NATO or the Americans he said “Libya is not a piece of cake”.

    Meanwhile Hillary Clinton warned that Gaddafi’s government was still in possession of “chemical weapons”. Elaborated here.

    Excerpt:

    Clinton said U.S. planners remained concerned that Gaddafi, who under U.S. pressure agreed in 2003 to abandon his weapons of mass destruction, still had some capacity.

    “He still does, as you probably know, have some remaining chemical weapons and some other nasty stuff that we’re concerned about,” Clinton said.

    If he does still have chemical weapons that is not, before you start accusing, the fault of Tony Blair. The USA took all responsibility for dismantling Gaddafi’s nuclear arsenal.

    The Rolling Stone has this –

    Libya today reportedly possesses 9.5 metric tons of mustard gas and 1,000 metric tons of yellowcake uranium — the raw material for an atomic bomb.

    This website also takes a sideswipe at Bush’s claim over Iraq’s WMD. Tell you what Mr Tim Dickinson – let’s call Gaddafi’s bluff.  Let’s just ignore him and see if he REALLY has WMD. And then when he poisons North Africa, the Middle East and half of Europe let’s blame someone else.

    Referring to Saif’s latest outburst a top US intelligence officer opined at the LA Times

    WASHINGTON — Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi is unlikely to be ousted by rebels, the top U.S. intelligence officer has told a congressional committee, and the United States must contemplate the national-security implications of a Kadafi victory — or even a stalemate.

    Libya could end up split into two or three parts, James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, said Thursday, or “you could end up with a Somalia-like situation.”

    Because of its superior weapons and logistical capabilities, “I think over time, over the longer term, that the regime will prevail,” Clapper said at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. Kadafi has units, equipped with tanks and artillery, that have the ability to maintain and replenish their weapons over time, Clapper said.

    But some US senators, including presidential candidate John McCain are urging more action from the USA:

    In Washington, neither the potential for a stalemate nor a Kadafi victory sat well with Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), who argued the Obama administration should do more to help the rebels, including a no-fly zone, to prevent Kadafi from retaining power.

    William Hague said in response to Gaddafi’s son’s statement that Saif sounds as though he is declaring war on his own people. The British Foreign Secretary also said that the case for a no-fly zone (no agreement in Brussels today) would be massively strengthened if Muammar Gaddafi launched a full-scale attack against his people.

    Here at SkyNews live you’ll find the latest from Libya, including the breaking news that demonstrator have been shot at by the authorities in Saudi Arabia (also reported at Washington Post). I have to say I have found Sky’s coverage on the Middle East turmoil far better than that of the BBC.

    I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)

    The greatest and most successful leader the Labour Party has ever had with the courage to fight the Islamist terrorists who really would like to kill us all, and you never hear a good word about him. The herd of independent minds, commentators, activists etc who have never had to make a difficult decision in their lives drown out all debate with their inane chants of war crimes and blood on his hands. Defend him at every chance. I just wish more people would do it. (Glasgow, UK)

    Blair was the greatest Labour Prime Minister. It is a disgrace that the party has turned away from his legacy. Shame on Ed Miliband and his so-called ‘new generation’.

      I think that if Tony Blair had a chance of winning in court he would have by now taken all those who, according to you, “misrepresent the information and facts” down.

      • keeptonyblairforpm Says:

        That’s your opinion. Mine is that all those who “misrepresent the information and facts” do not deserve even the satisfaction of such a court appearance. As for Blair, it must be clear to him from the high regard in which he is held worldwide, including the Middle East, that calls for him “to answer” for his decisions are not as widespread as the British press and liberal left assume.
