‘Stupid Libya war doomed to fail as EU falling apart itself’
The French Parliament is due to vote on extending the military campaign in Libya. It comes after recent remarks by its defence minister suggesting that the rebels should talk to Colonel Gaddafi. This has sparked rumours that one of the most active advocates of the NATO-led invasion, might be starting to back-pedal on the campaign. John Laughland – Director of the Institute of Democracy and Cooperation in Paris says France now realises it has to find a way out of Libya to avoid losing face.
