  1. According to NEWSNOW LIBYA, ‘in the last hour’, “Turkey and Russia agree to continue efforts for a ceasefire, stability in Libya”…..and then “Russia, Turkey agree to push for Libya ceasefire”……”Turkey, Russia say they seek lasting ceasefire for Libya” ……..”Russia, Turkey hold consultations on resolving Libya conflict”…..but wait, ‘in the last two hours’, “Turkey, Russia mull creating joint working group for Libya!”. OK, but the resolution of so many similar crisis’ is for diplomats, statesmen, generals and presidents to push the crisis to the proverbial ‘red line’, until the pressure becomes impossible and then the balloon goes ‘bang’ or deflates. Which will it be, Turkey and Russia? You both appear to be holding a Pin.
