BBC: UK forces prepare after UN no-fly zone vote

What are UK forces preparing for? Military intervention in someone else's civil war? In a foreign uprising? In a rebellion? A coup? What?

I'm shocked. Egyptians didn't want and didn't get outside interference, but Libyans do and will?

The most sensible thing in the BBC article comes from Libya/Gadaffi:
In response to warnings from Libya's defence ministry that any outside attack would trigger retaliation and destabilise the Mediterranean region, the Foreign Office said Britain would not be diverted from its objective.
The BBC put that paragraph right at the last to conclude a relatively very long article for the BBC. I think it deserves a little more attention than that. Crikey. We're off to war again, really - just like that. For what? To support domestic opposition to Gadaffi? Hmmmm. I have deep reservations. The record for such things is not good, is it?
