    Everything I have read over the past 14 years suggests that Libya wasn't responsible for the Locherbie bombing. I think this is a view shared by several of the victim's relatives.

    But, hey, in this time of wars based on "intelligence", when does the truth ever stand in the way of international diplomacy. Libya were prepared to admit liability and pay compensation in order to have sanctions removed - that was an economic no-brainer. I doubt the guy serving 20 years in a Scottish prison thinks it's a price worth paying, though.

    This is so tragically and utterly believable. So much lying, so little principle. And to think that this is all done in the name of that same "free society" that so many allied soldiers died to protect from lying propaganda and domination by an arrogant over-militarised superstate in WW2. :mad:
