The British deputy commander of the Libya operation refused to say he was sorry. Rear Admiral Russ Harding, the British deputy commander of Nato’s Libya operation, said: “It would appear that two of our strikes yesterday may have resulted in [rebel] deaths,” he told reporters in Naples, where the operation is based. “I am not apologising. The situation on the ground was and remains extremely fluid and until yesterday we did not have information that [rebel] forces are using tanks ” But the apology came from the Nato secretary-general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, hours after the British deputy commander of the Libya operation refused to say he was sorry. Rasmussen, in a clear attempt to correct the impact of Harding’s comments, said:” This is a very unfortunate incident. I strongly regret the loss of life, we basically give our sorrows to the mothers who lost their kids, but this is a war … We are conducting operations in Libya in accordance with the UN security council resolution with the aim to protect civilians. This is also the reason why our aircraft target military equipment that could be used to attack civilians, but I can assure you that we do our utmost to avoid civilian casualties” The attack on Wednesday happened between the towns of Brega and Ajdabiya. Local doctors reported 13 deaths. A similar attack by Nato planes five days earlier killed a reported 10 rebel fighters, and the latest bombing enraged those fighting Gaddafi’s forces.
Some of the greatest humans were Briton, some like the great Isaac Newton, and the great Charles Darwin. But these stupid arrogant Britons, and the stupid British politicians that said the Libyans should apologize for Gaddafi’s acts disgrace other Britons by their shameful acts. Of course the Libyan should not say that all Britons are like these arrogant British officers or politicians. All Libyans are not like Gaddafi; All Iranians are not like Khamenei; All Americans are not all Bush; All Frenchs are not like Sarkosy; All Italians are not like Berlusconi; And all Britons are not like Blair or Cameron or other stupid and arrogant British politicians. But shame on the arrogant Britons, and shame on British politicians.
