    Does Hillary Clinton have this one right? Should the U.S. enforce a No-Fly Zone in Libya? I'm interested in hearing what you all think. Thanks.

    If the UN and NATO ask for one to be enforced we should. Not sure if we have a carrier in the area, but with air refueling we could keep a CAP over certain cities for a short period.

    A carrier would make it alot easier.

    Yay, and again I say...YAY!!!

    Its high time for Khadaffi to go down...in flames.

    He's going to end up being exiled and/or hanged for his crimes.

    All under Obama's no-nonsense watch.

    The No-Fly Zone should be the US-Mexico border.

    Yep.

    Yes to air power.

    No to ground power.

    It should stop there.

    As long as we don't have the media mounting a campaign to demonize it. Accidents happen in war. Is the military going to be on the chopping block the first time collateral damage occurs ?

    Nay

    It's not our fight. It's not our country. No one involved has asked for our help.

    Let the arabs take care of arabs.

    what's that? they are not helping each other?

    whodathunk they didn't give a damn about each other.

    And why are we supposed to again?

    Thats a very good point. Any AA sites that try to resist will have to be neutralized. Also if and when the Libyan military tries to resist using fighter aircraft the remains of said aircraft after eating a AIM-120 or AIM-9 will have to land (crash) somewhere.
