What is Libyan objective?

EDITOR – When we first got involved in Libya it was said we were just creating a no fly zone.

Then Cameron, Chirac and Obama said they wanted to get rid of Gadaffi.

Now the British Army is sending military experts to help the rebels.

This is how you get embroiled in long-running wars.

With all the defence cutbacks how on earth can we justify an expensive foreign war with no clear end in sight.

No one, from Obama and Cameron down, have made it clear when the end game will be or what even constitutes an end game.

It is an open-ended conflict that risks sucking us in like Iraq.

Once you start something like this you can’t just pull out.
