France’s Chief of Defence said Friday in a radio interview that he thought allied military operations in Libya would last a matter of “weeks” and hopefully not “months”.
“I doubt that it will be (over) in days, I think it will be weeks, and I hope it won’t be in months,” Admiral Edouard Guillaud told the France Info radio station.
“There will not be, strictly speaking, a situation of getting bogged down militarily because obviously the solution is political,” he said.
“Clearly, it is now a matter of finding political solutions, but that’s not my domain,” he added.
I doubt that. In Hillary Clinton’s brief speech yesterday announcing the handoff to NATO, which really is not much change, she hinted towards further actions that may be required “to protect civilians.”
It sounded like a veiled but clear indication that NATO would be/is considering/planning on inserting a “peace keeping” force on the ground in Libya.
