U.S. Seeks UN Resolution Authorizing Strikes on Libya - FoxNews.com
If we go into Libya, I wonder if the 'no blood for oil' people will come out and protest, hanging Obama in effigy, burning his photo, calling him Hitler, etc., like they did for Bush? I think not.The Obama administration is pushing for a Thursday vote on a UN Security Council resolution authorizing airstrikes and other measures to stop the the regime of Libyan leader Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi from killing civilians in Libya.
The move comes as Qaddafi forces have made "significant strides" in Libya, the State Department said.
The U.S. wants the Security Council to approve planes, troops or ships to stop attacks by Qaddafi on the rebels, according to a diplomat familiar with closed-door negotiations.
The Obama administration said it would not act without Security Council authorization, did not want to put U.S. ground troops into Libya, and insists on broad international participation, especially by Arab states, the diplomat said.
Also, if the Obama administration goes into Libya without UN authorization, what will the general reaction be here in the states?
