Report US, Britain And France Have Promised East Libyan Rebels A No Fly Zone

Tyler Durden's picture

Contrary to prior expectations that all No Fly Zone decisions will have to go through the UN, Reuters reports an Al Jazeera update that US, Britain and France have promised East Libyan rebels the imposition of a No Fly Zone. While the latter two were expected, and hardly relevant considering both are quite impotent at actually imposing "any" zone anywhere in the world, the addition of the US, with its USS Enterprise floating in the region, is rather surprising, especially since the nobel peace prize winning teleprompter announced previously how no unilateral invasion (because that is what a No Fly Zone in essence) decisions would be made.

From Reuters:

Al Jazeera television reported on Monday that the United States, Britain and France had promised rebels in eastern Libya to set up a "no-fly" zone, which would help them fight counter-attacking government forces.

The Arabic satellite channel did not give a source for the report and had no further details. There was no immediate confirmation of the report.
