Protect civilians? Pray, how are they going to do this by air power? The strikes would be undertaken for taking out Gaddafi's military assets. But is providing close air support and/or bombing Gaddafi’s vital installations and assets going to work? Simple answer – No! The UN would also need to get boots on the ground to help the rebels capture key locations and areas of strategic importance. NATO would, in all likelihood, be tasked for the purpose.
So that means more America troops! And considering that North Africa and the Middle East is on the boil, it looks like there’s going to be no respite from the cycle of troop deployment at least for now!
And be prepared to shell out more for your gas!

The no fly zone and strikes on his supply chain and the unit positions around Benghazi will cripple his army real fast. If it tries to retreat to Tripoli it will be another road of death just like in the first Iraq war when Iraq's Republican guard pulled out of Kuwait and was slaughtered from the sky.

Libya declared the ceasefire last night. The French said the NATO forces will attack today. So ignore the NWO controlled press they are full of BS. I'm in Algeria right now and we are next door to Libya. The Algerians here know exactly what is going on over there.
