Does this take us down to Zapatero’s “last resort”?
Pro-Gaddafi forces have launched a fierce attack on Libyan rebels in Zawiya, sources in the town say. Casualties were reported as 50 tanks and 120 pick-up trucks launched three attacks on the rebel-held town 50km (30 miles) west of the capital, Tripoli.
“I don’t know how many are dead – they tore Zawiya down to ashes,” a source in the town told the BBC.
So, the score is:
– Fascist murdering tank-battling dictatorship = 10
– Freedom Fighters with stones, sticks and the odd Kalashnikov = 0.
Let’s hope things pick up after half time ….
Anyone spotted any UN “decisive measures”? I’m looking hard, but so far with no success …..
