SAS Poised To Grab Gaddifi’s Collar: British Troops Hunting Libyan Leader

by | 27th, February 2011

LIBYA and Gaddafi: THE SAS home camp in Hereford saw a lot of activity on Wednesday and Thursday this week and Old Man Anorak got a couple of tips one of the UK’s elite fighting units was likely to be heading south.

It was decided to say nothing and wait and see. Not a long wait since last evening the announcement was made two Hercules aircraft had flown into the Libyan desert south of Benghazi to airlift civilian oil-workers. Last night’s news came after the extractions , the arrival of the first plane in Malta and hinted of a bridgehead airstrip where the civilians had been told to assemble.

Those messages to assemble were probably delivered by paler-skinned Arab gents with a slight West Country accent. The SAS was originally formed for desert behind enemy lines fighting and still has many of its members fluent in Arabic languages.

It is thought 500 civilians remain to be rescued as the UN also took it’s most stringent steps yet to condemn any member nation by imposing sanctions on Gaddifi, his family and henchmen. All are being referred to the International Criminal Courts for offences thought to have been committed in the killing of Libyans during the last week’s civil unrest. One problem may be that Libya has never signed up for membership of the International Courts System (nor has the USA).

Economic and personal sanctions were also imposed.

Australia has moved immediately to restrict all financial transactions and bar any Gaddifi family member from entering Australia. The US had already acted unilaterally a couple of days ago.

Picture: The neo-Georgian luxury Gaddifi home in Winnington Close London. Eight bedrooms and its own security company. It was bought by an off-shore company in 2009.

There is the obvious target of the  House of Shame the £multi-million London home of (The Sword of Islam. Oddly this has just gone up for sale. This is the home where Gaddifi’s son, and projected nepotist successor, directed the moves which lead to the release of Britain’s worst mass murderer the Lockerbie
