I remember reading some weeks ago a report made public by the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service the SVR to the effect that if the bombing of Libya had not achieved Gaddafi’s overthrow by the end of May then regardless of the terms of UN Security Council Resolution 1973 ground troops would be introduced into the country.

Al Jazeera is now reporting the presence of British troops in the rebel held western Libyan city of Misurata.  Apparently the Al Jazeera correspondent not only saw the troops but even managed to film them.  I take this as another sign together with the deployment of helicopter gunships that a ground invasion of the country is now quietly underway.
