My assessment is that we need martial law to bring about a successful termination of the secessionist movement of the MLF.

If martial law is now lifted even partially, the MNLF will not be under any pressure to negotiate a settlement.

Specially now that Col. Khaddafi has sent word as of the 17th that he wants the negotiations resumed.

And we cannot trust him unless we negotiate from a position of strength.
