British DM: Libya War Could Last Months


In broad comments regarding the ever-stalemated Libyan War, British Defense Secretary Liam Fox conceded that his government has no clue how much longer the war will last, and that military commanders are preparing for several more months.

British forces had originally presented the plan as a 90 day conflict, but some four months in there is no sign of any change on the ground. Fox had previously suggested the war might last through Christmas, but now there is a suggestion it may go even longer.

There is growing discontent about the war among member nations, even among initially hawkish nations like France. Fox chided the French for “aiding” Gadhafi by suggesting the war should end.
