It is now nine hours since the French launched air strikes against the Libyan forces besieging Benghazi and six hours since US Tomahawk missiles where targeted against the old 'Wheelus' air base on the outskirts of Tripoli. UK aircraft have also been reported in action to enforce the UN mandated 'No Fly' zone.
So where I ask are John Minto and Keith Locke. Their silence is deafening. By now I would have expected them to be crowding the airwaves with their ritualistic condemnation of this latest manifestation of Western imperialism driven by the desire of the United States to somehow appropriate Libya's oil reserves.
How long before they seek to portray Muammar Gaddafi as a man of peace; the all loving father figure who wants nothing more than to unite his country free from all outside influences (read democracy).
Just seeking to get in first with John and Keith clearly having a Sunday lie in.
