I just seen this on Fox Business Channel, headline read along the lines of "French President Nicolas Sarkozy says Qaddafi must step down immediately and all violence towards people is unacceptable, he has said a military option is quite possible." (loose translation)

So I went for a search on the internet but no luck, maybe because it was just breaking and has yet to hit the news sites online.

Anyone find a link to this please post it here.

That would be a positive step. It's about time countries clean up their own back yard. I am glad Obama stayed out of it so far.

His word was "on military intervention, you know how France considers with great caution and reserve any attempt of this nature." from french medias ten minutes ago.

Believe me (i am french), France will avoid any military option for the moment.

Sarkozy en visite à Ankara: "Kadhafi doit partir" ANKARA -

Le président français Nicolas Sarkozy a appelé vendredi depuis Ankara le dirigeant libyen Mouammar Kadhafi à quitter le pouvoir, estimant que les violences commises par son régime contre le peuple libyen sont "inacceptables et feront l'objet d'enquêtes et de sanctions". "Monsieur Kadhafi doit partir", a déclaré M. Sarkozy au cours d'une conférence de presse commune avec son homologue turc, Abdullah Gül, à Ankara, où il fait une visite dans le cadre de la présidence française du G20. "Les violences répétées et systématiques contre le peuple libyen sont inacceptables, et feront l'objet d'enquêtes et de sanctions", a-t-il ajouté. M. Sarkozy avait déjà exigé jeudi soir, avec le président américain Barack Obama, "un arrêt immédiat de l'usage de la force" par les autorités libyennes, et pressé l'Union européenne d'adopter des "sanctions concrètes" contre les responsables de la répression en Libye.
