I don't want to get all political here, but I was very proud of the actions of my adopted country in taking a hospital ship into Misrata in Libya to rescue more than 250 badly wounded people waiting there. Also, I read that doctors from Medecins Sans Frontieres have been risking their lives to get badly wounded people onto ships for treatment. It's easy to bombard from the air but it take real heroes to pick up the pieces on the ground. But the worst thing was, the ships had been refused permission to enter harbour for days. In the end, they brought in fighter planes from the Turkish Air Force, which escorted the ship. Surely missions like this should get more publicity and support? But there's hardly been a mention in the press. There are still thousands of people, including kids with amputations, waiting to be taken away, and the water has been off there for days. The reporting on the Libyan conflict sucks. There are major human issues at stake here people should hear about. End of rant.
