I was suprised at how nieve a member was when she said in a different thread ,hopefully they will set up a no-fly zone so we don't have to go to war !
?????????????
This is what a no-fly zone entails =

In 1995 Operation Deny Flight gave way to Operation Deliberate Force, directed against the Republika Srpska with 400 aircraft flying 3,515 missions against 338 targets. Daalder also supported the U.S. and British no-fly zone over Iraq in the 1990s and in 2006 co-authored an article for Foreign Affairs, journal of the Council on Foreign Relations, entitled "Global NATO" in which he applauded the military alliance's role in the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq and the Darfur region of western Sudan. [3] At the time the article appeared many in the U.S. were calling for a replication of the no-fly operations employed over Iraq, Bosnia and later Yugoslavia for Sudan.

This situation is turning bad very quickly , but I guess we all knew it was comming .That hope is now gone in a puff of smoke .

More death and misery in the name of Democracy .We'll give ya freedom and Democracy even if we have to put a gun to your head ..And of coarse this just creates another generation with scars and hatred .

I really don't think the west should get involved,every time we do it comes back to bite us,damned if we damned if we don't,plus if we come to the rescue of the Libyan rebels, how many other poorly thought out revolutions will it encourage?

Yeah, but contrary to popular belief, the Obama administration has blocked France and the UK's motion to impose a no-fly zone as well.


The Obama administration has so far blocked British and French moves to impose a no-fly zone over Libya to curtail Gaddafi's attacks on rebel forces and civilians. One stated reason for its reluctance is concern that the US has little first-hand knowledge of the embattled rebel groups, which have been asking for western military assistance with increasing urgency in recent days.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Obama expressed caution about dealing with the Benghazi council, which France alone has recognised as Libya's legitimate successor government. The opposition was "just getting organised", Obama said. Clinton's talks are intended to give the US a better picture of who it may be dealing with if Gaddafi falls..


The Arab league is trying to convince the US that this is necessary. (Isn't this ironic???)


Its unanimous weekend decision to ask the UN security council to impose a no-fly zone over Libya was seen as an extraordinary step, given historical opposition by the 22-nation bloc (The Arab League) to western intervention in the region.

...

The move was also a risky one for Arab leaders who face popular dissent at home. Syria and Algeria reportedly argued strongly against the decision in private discussions, insisting on a clause saying any western forces should withdraw as soon as the crisis abated.

...


Pressure on Obama to drop US objections to a no-fly zone has been increased by the Arab League decision highlighting "serious crimes and great violations" by the Libyan regime and by a statement by Mustafa Abdel Jalil, head of the Benghazi revolutionary council.


Interesting times we live in today.

Well, if it would encourage one here, then and only then would I be for it.

It is already been a major concession from the arabs, long wary of US and Western powers, with frequent calls for the the 'death to US', 'death to infidels', etc, etc.

That today the Arab league could unanimously seek for western powers help through a security council session, speaks volumes.

Amongst many, it proves their capabilites and tech is sorely lacking that they could not have done it on their own in order to help their fellow arabs. They know full well why. Buying armaments is different from building up a capable advanced society. It requires certain ingredients and in the light of current events, may they be aware of what they are.

But still, at least the Arab league has its heart in the right place, and that is to save our fellow human Libyan brothers and sisters, no matter the cost. It goes to show how common our values and aspirations in life each and every human shares, no matter our differences.

And that cost will not be costly financially. It is from the heart called honour. Today, the arab league had called for help. Tomorrow it may be US or western powers whom will call for help in the name of humankind's survival. The only constant in life are changes, for no one will know what tomorrow will bring. That help will be appreciated and return in kind, as long as there is honour.

Some pratical minded will say honour is just a word, like love, which doesnt pay the rent. But without love, that sense of purpose in life is meaningless and cold. It is only a human character trait but priceless beyond measure. Similarly with honuor. Without it, there is no sense in any committment or pledges made, and those that lack it will pay a price beyond mere finacial costs. We came into this world with nothing and will leave with nothing anyway.

To Gaddafi, we are ready and waiting. The clock....is ticking.......

IMO Because the only reason the Arab League wants it is because NATO told them they want it. The West is not going to make the same mistake they made with Iraq. No unilateral BS this time.

All far too late. Many of the opposition forces are dead or are in retreat. Government forces are now making heavy advances into rebel held land. By the time the no fly zone is imposed it will be too late. The only thing left to do would be to bomb the regime to smithereens, which means an invasion of Lybia with ground forces not just the use of air power. so whilst the world looks the other way understandbly with what is happening in Japan, things are falling apart in Lybia. Alot of people are going to be tourtured and executed in the meantime. Not good. I sincerely hope Gaddfhi and his henchman which includes his sons gets their just desserts sooner rather than later. and just why do we refer him as Colonel? He does not deserve the rank or credit of that title. he is an insane murderous man who needs to be imprisoned and fed bread and water for the rest of his natural life and locked up in solitude. Just like what he has done to so many others. Not forgetting he ordered the Lockerbie bombing. We should have gone in there when we had the chance. Now that has come and gone and many thousands more will die.

We did go in and bomb him once. We were vilified for doing so and our "friends" the french would not allow our pilots to overfly their airspace. I say NO! NO! and NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yet again. Let us stay the heck out of it. It is not our business.

It's probably too late. At this point, is it even worth trying? It would have made a HUGE difference before. Now it would probably further destabilize the country.

Hey, at least everyone's distracted with the tsunami.

Better late than never.

Our freedom loving Libyan brothers and sisters had set in chain a motion that can no longer be reversed without dreadful and horrifying consequences. It had not been a choice of their calling, but a scenario created by the beast himself, when he ordered the mass murders over unarmed civilians pleading only for succor.

Having seen the reactions of his masses under his leadership or the lack of it, he will make even more sure this time oppression is tuned to the max, the way China had successfully oppressed every single chinese in mainland China. And China would be most glad to help Gaddafi. Birds of a feather flock together, so does mass murderers of a national scale.

Despite his claims of amnesty for rebels, NONE would ever believe this mass murderer. Hundreds of his own Libyan soldiers whom had refused his orders to kill fellow Libyans were tortured and mercilessly quietly silenced. That is the amnesty he offers.

Kill one and you are a murderer, but kill thousands, it is just statistics, so said Stalin. The stains of precious human blood is already on the beast, therefore another few thousands or millions means nothing to him, only that he remains in power. Absolute power...corrupts absolutely. His daily actions and press statements already proved that he had lost his human mind.

It's time for humankind to set things right, and there are many issues to set right. The Libyan question is one of such issues that we humanity must not shirk from, or we have no right to claim civilised status for we had failed to protect our fellow humans.....

Bah..Libya is almost synonymous with terrorism....we have a very vested interest in who is leading that nation. Of course we're going to take action and get involved.

I just can't believe the Arab League went along with it...except to of course have the blame be on Western infidels when a bomb hits a house instead of an ammo depot.
