Obama: NATO, U.S. Weighing Potential Military Options on Libya - FoxNews.com
Sure sounds like it.
Nobody knows what B. Hussein is up to. Last november he was calling the US Chamber of Commerce a subversive organization. The guy is either off his rocker or he is a fool. My guess is that he will do what Clinton did when he got in political hot water which is bomb some country. Clinton bombed Europe and Obama will probably bomb Africa.
well, he has to do something to slow down the gas prices, no?
Obama gonna have to give Khaddafi a smackdown...

AL gives okay to Libyan no-fly zone...
Arab League approves no-fly zone in Libya. But is it too late?
March 13, 2011 - The US and UK expressed support for the Arab League's approval of a no-fly zone as Libyan rebels beat a hasty eastward retreat from forces loyal to Col. Muammar Qaddafi.
I don't know how many of you all know this but part of setting up a no-fly zone is bombing SAM sites, radar installations, air defenses and sometimes grounded aircraft.
The only negative on a no-fly zone is Ghaddafi has a slew of assault helicopters. They can stay low to the ground in a city and still be able to open fire on the people.
True and in this situation a no fly zone is only going to bring very limited results. It might not be worth the cost and the effort.
