Libya No Fly Zone - And a good question?

Inspector Gadget raises an extremely good point in this post:
"Am I the only one wondering how we can suddenly afford to get involved in yet another conflict in the middle-east, when we have been told over and over again that there is no money for public services here at home?"
Leaving to one side IG's obvious concerns with police budgets etc, if we as a country have no money to continue funding care for the elderly, maintenance of our existing roads, improving existing train services, maintaining an adquate military (aircraft carriers, RAF and army), libraries; are having to make these cuts in order to negate the deficit bequeathed us by Gordon Brown and his incompetent government - just where the hell has this money been found to wage another war?

As IG enquires, just who the hell asked us?

Well, Mr. Cameron?

A Woud query the 18th century - methinks it is more like the Dark Ages, or is that to come when we are solely reliant on renewable energy?

Surely we go into Libya based on 'reparations'? Isn't this why there was a delay in the decision to implement a no-fly zone - the behind-the-scenes haggling for 'who gets what' afterwards?
