France appeared on Tuesday to have persuaded Britain to support a shift in attitude toward Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, suggesting that he could be allowed to remain in Libya in return for giving up power in a broader deal including a cease-fire.
In talks in London late Monday, the British foreign secretary, William Hague, met his French counterpart, Alain Juppé, who said last week that one of the scenarios to resolve the conflict in Libya is that he stays in Libya on one condition, which I repeat: that he very clearly steps aside from Libyan political life.

But, adopting a newer formula used by the State Department in Washington, Mr. Hague said on Tuesday that what happens to Qaddafi is ultimately a question for the Libyans.

November 2012 cannot come fast enough...atually, forget that...Jaunary 2013 cannot come fast enough, to watch this idiot pack up and get the hell out of the peoples house!!
When danger reared its ugly head.. Sir Obama bravely turned tail and fled!
Now the question?? Who's got the money??
Another appropriate line for him: I bet your gay!
This is absurd, after the millions of dollars spent in this adventurist non-war, they’re seriously considering letting Gaddafi stay? If this passes for statesmanship today, we’re in serious trouble.
If Obama was elected in 1945 instead of 2008 we’d all be eating sushi and driving Toyotas.
Look for a “two state solution”
Khadafy’s tribe keeps control of western Libya with some oil wealth
Muslim Brotherhood-style regime takes control of eastern Libya with some oil wealth
worst of all outcomes for US is optimal outcome for Obama and the transnational lefties
Obama has transformed north Africa into a daisy chain of unstable countries.
Light the fuse in Morocco, turn and run.
Obama has transformed north Africa into a daisy chain of unstable countries
That is because he is intentionally trying to ignite a global conflict before election day. Obama want chaos and conflict worldwide. That has always been his goal from day one.
He will become Britain’s weird Uncle Fester, up in the attic...
Since noone was really in charge, and we were leading from behind, could there have been any other outcome?
Opposed to a policy of removing Kadaffy from power by force:
Malik Zulu Shabazz
Barack Hussein Obama Junior
In favor of removing Daffy: AQ and Tailgunner Joe
Hague was on tv last night, looking totally unconvincing as he said that he would “allow” Gaddafi to go on residing in Libya. Yeah ... like it is his choice.
