Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama is trying to limit the United States' role in enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya to support aircraft only and is very reluctant to commit any offensive U.S. firepower, a senior U.S. official familiar with the military planning discussions said Friday.
"We will provide the unique capabilities that we can bring to bear to stop the violence against civilians, including enabling our European allies and Arab partners to effectively enforce a no-fly zone," the president said in a nationally televised statement about U.S. military action.

Agreed... I see nothing wrong with the Us supporting the UN resolution and offering logisitical support to our European / Middle East allies to enforce the no fly.
The Europeans have complained for too long the US acts unilaterally. About time they take the elad in some of this stuff.
