…for not realising you were backward savages, and not decent human beings:
Omar Al-Mukhtar, a Libyan cadet at the base but not one of those implicated in the crimes, said Libyan soldiers thought the men accused of assault had been treated badly. He told the BBC that he felt “there is no problem”. Mr Al-Mukhtar added that there had been conflict between British and Libyan soldiers at the base and blamed the UK Government for not offering “a comfortable way of living here”.
He claimed that some people were “trying to ruin the reputation of the Libyan army” and that his fellow soldiers had been offered alcohol, drugs, and sex for money when they left the base. He said: “It was the British from the beginning. They should have sought a solution and finished the training well. They didn’t tell us about British law and what’s the difference between right and wrong here.”
Funny, at a time when it would seem Libyan men really, really need to be told that ‘No’ means ‘No’, what are our feminists doing?
