Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An hour ago, Germany's new defense minister gave reasons for Germany's abstention in an IMHO rather undiplomatic interview. He spoke about the dictator ensuring that there will be civilian dead, that ultimately ground troops would be needed, and that it is hypocritical to want to remove Ghaddafi only and do nothing in a lot of other places (I think he listed Sudan and Ivory Coast among others). (The journalist asked him if that's a prediction of disaster for the allies.) Then there was a quip about allies who previously courted Ghaddafi now rushing to the forefront, clearly aimed at Sarko.

One whose delusions are out of fashion.
