Britian's Sunday Times newspaper is reporting that Libyan rebels have captured a British special forces unit in the east of the country.

The British should have sent James Bond instead.

They may need the help of the Italians to get them out.

Yes indeed, Italy is Libya's largest trading partner, so it may very well boil down to the Italians having to get involved.

Hello All,
Here is the latest on the botched SAS mission in Libya.
This does not look good for PM Cameron and the UK!

They screwed up in Iraq a few years back when they used a tank to break out one of their members from a prison after being captured.Not looking so elite...
