David Cameron speech on Libya to Conservative Party's Scottish Conference

David Cameron speech on Libya to Conservative Party's Scottish Conference; Cameron speech SOT - Before I close, let me say this. We should never contemplate military force without thinking carefully of the people we ask to go into action and their families and loved ones too. Our Army, Navy and Air Force are the best of our nation. The bravest of the brave. And here in Scotland, where people have for decades made a disproportionate contribution to our Armed Services, it is good to be able to say loud and clear that we honour and revere all that you are and all that you do. We must never ask you to act without thinking of the consequences but I believe this course is good and just and right. So this, in summary, is how we are acting. At a level that matches our resources. In alliance with other countries. With the full authority of the United Nations Security Council and in accordance with international law. And this is why we are acting. Not just the moral duty to step in when a dictator starts killing his own people. Not just the belief that a movement towards more open and democratic government in the Arab world will be good for the entire world. But the clear and hard-headed understanding that a stable Libya, free from Colonel Gaddafi's brutality, is in Britain's long-term interests too. This is where our ideals and our interests come together. And I know, that the British people, as they always do in times of crisis will unite behind the action we are taking in the cause of justice and freedom for the safety of our nation and the security of our world.
