BBC News - Libya: UN backs action against Colonel Gaddafi
It could be just a matter of hours before British and French aircraft, along with an undefined Arab ally, could be attacking Gaddafi's air defences and ground forces. Does anyone think this is a bad idea?
Earlier reports suggested that if the resolution were passed, air attacks on Col Gaddafi's forces by the British and French air forces could begin within hours.
It is not thought that the US would be involved in the first strikes, but the British and French are likely to get logistical backup from Arab allies.
