    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.

    Libya Tests President Obama's Doctrine on Military Intervention
    Wednesday, March 09, 2011 Washington (AP) - A month shy of his election in 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama outlined a doctrine for American military force that included crises in which the United States has a "moral obligation" to intervene. As commander in chief, he soon will have to decide whether Libya fits the bill.

    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.
