Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And how is that relevant for France selling Rafales to Libya? You still can't oppress people with fighter bombers. They are war machines. Israel is fighting a low intensity war against the palestinians.

Now, let's say the Israelis wanted to buy Rafales. Should France deny it? Nope. If they don't the Israelis will buy American instead (which they do anyway, but still).

Results are the only thing that matter. Of course, France could turn not selling Rafales to Israel into a big political issue, shaming Israel. Then it would be a relevant thing to do.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
