Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BBC News - Live: Libya crisis
"The warlord Sarkozy [the French president] wants to 'Arabise' the coalition against Colonel Gaddafi," writes journalist Arnaud Leparmentier in a blog hosted by France's Le Monde website (in French). "This is his first war... He wants to follow in the footsteps of [former President] Jacques Chirac, the defender of the Arab peoples, not those of George W Bush... However, the Arab League seemed to be backtracking Sunday, and the Arab public are worried about bombardments carried out by what is not an international coalition, but essentially a US-Franco-British one. On Sunday evening, he called Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, emir of Abu Dhabi, to encourage him to participate in the coalition."

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
