Reader comment on item: Back to the Shores of Tripoli?

Is there a similarity between the opposing forces in Libya, and the opposing forces of Nazi Germany and Great Britain in 1939.

Great Britain desparately needed arms and munitions . President Roosevelt arranged for the US to provide these, even if aircaraft had to be rolled across bridges between Canada and the US.

Are there no "hot shot pilots" in the Middle East or elesewhere, prefereably muslims, mercenaries, like the ""Flying Tigers" willing to help the Libyan people in the same way the Flying Tigers helped the Chinese.

Such an arrangement would prevent any contreversy with regard to non muslim interevention.

The countries surounding Libya must do something. It is in their sphere of influence.

Shame on them for doing nothing to help their neighbour when they have untold resources to do so.

The West should put the spotlight on this disgraceful performance by Libya's neighbouring countries.

Two dozen or so hot shot pilots from the East, could sweep the Libyan sky.

The Saudis can afford the aircraft.

F. Thornton.
