    The EU is. They just need UN approval (and they'll get it):

    Sounds sorta like the advisers we sent into Vietnam eh? But see, it's the UN, it's not us! :lol:

    Don't you listen to him at all? He promised not to send troops in to Libya. Just like he promised to get them out or Iraq, not use signing statements, close Gitmo, stop rendition, ...

    Damn, is there a pattern here?

    There might not be a choice at this point, without some real help Ghaddafi is going nowhere.

    Why is it even the U.S's "job" to fix everyone else's military problems. I say let them deal with it.
