  • Libya: Putting the Military Back Together Again
    Posted by Robert Wall 10:03 AM on Sep 13, 2011

    Even though NATO's military campaign in Libya is not yet over,  policy makers are starting to look at what comes next.

    One of the main tasks will be rebuilding the Libyan military, which has been taken apart by weeks of NATO air strikes.

    The U.K., at least, is already putting some intellectual effort into the reconstruction job. Gerald Howarth, defense minister for international security strategy, says the rebuilding effort is "actively under consideration within Whitehall," the U.K. government offices.

    The government has consulted officials with some experience in how to do this, including those who helped put together the arms package to rebuild Kuwait's military after Iraq's invasion in 1990.
