Libyen krigets kostnad för Storbritannien hittills 2 miljarder kr

Det kan vara värt att notera det humanitär icke-kriget i Libyen som skulle vara över på några veckor efter nu 3 månader kostat bara Storbritannien mer än 2 miljarder kronor. Detta då efter att lyckas göra situationen än värre med Gadaffi regimen kvar i tripoli.

Var det någon som antog att i humanitära krig bara väst visar upp sin militärmakt diverse diktatorer med automatik skulle fly och de som begår humanitära brott mot mänskligheten snällt inställa sig i Haag för att få sitt straff…

Libya war has cost UK £200m | Politics | The Guardian
The government is expected to tell MPs on Thursday that the operation in Libya has cost about £200m in an attempt to head off growing concerns that the military bill is spiralling.

Ministers will put down a written ministerial statement to the house, bringing forward the announcement from next week.

However, some defence economists have warned the cost could reach £1bn if the campaign lasts into the autumn.

Details had been expected in a few days, but the government appears to want to close down the issue as an avenue of attack for the opposition.

After a grilling from the shadow chancellor, Ed Balls, in the Commons on Tuesday, George Osborne and chief secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, refused to be drawn on the precise amount.

At the weekend Alexander said in an interview with Sky News that it could be ”hundreds of millions”. Balls pointed out this was markedly different from the line in March that the operation would cost ”tens of millions not hundreds of millions”.
