    Pretty much, besides, I doubt the EU or NATO would be to happy about Chinese or Russian Aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean Sea

    1) An NFZ is an act of war. There will be an offensive component involved in taking out Gaddafi's air defenses. If we want to establish air supremacy, we may also have to take out is air force on the ground.
    2) Air power is indiscriminate. There is no telling how many civilians could potentially be harmed, given that we do not have spotters on the ground.
    3) Downed pilot scenario.
    4) It's an open-ended operation. Who knows when it will end?
    5) It's gonna cost a ****load of logistical resources and $$$

    Anyone else care to add...
    Hmmm....who is gonna vow to shoot down anything that violates, the NFZ?
