ah bollocks...

ehem...does anyone think why is there a British Navy ship off the coast of Lybia and why are air strikes being perpetrated over there? I see gaddafi isn't the nicest guy around but why don't we go and sistematically attack any other even crueller dictator, since the earth abounds with such despicable villains? And why wasn't this guy attacked long ago, as he was known for being a psychopath? Uhm...may it just occur to you that the only reason why occupy/attack a country is to get hold of its resources, in this case oil, when their leaders changes whatever policies for us beneficial?

The ship replied with their 4.5 inch guns. These are semi automatic with a rate of fire of 24 rounds per minute and have automatic target training & elevation.

Guess who won??

They've actually had a pop at Liverpool a couple of times before (off Misrata iirc), but she's a type 42, and the main reason she's there is as air defence picket for the other ships that are there (HMS Ocean, our helo carrier, amongst others).
