Eventually getting it right on Gaddafi

Despite my fears the west finally showed some backbone, managed to bring the arab league with them and stopped the authoritarian powers of China and Russia using their vetos.

But military intervention may be too late and the chaotic scenes of the rebels shooting down their own planes (apparently) is a sign of the confusion that exists on the ground. But it is a good sign and Cameron's stress on the legality of it is both significant and a reminder of the short cuts the previous regime were prepared to take when putting our armed forces in harm's way.
