    UN authorizes no-fly zone over Libya

    The U.N. Security Council cleared the legal path for international air strikes on Moammar Gadhafi's forces by authorizing a no-fly zone over Libya and "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from attacks by his advancing forces.
    The Thursday night vote was 10-0 with five countries abstaining including Russia and China, which have veto power in the council. India, Germany and Brazil also expressed misgivings about approving military action by outside forces.

    The United States, France and Britain indicated they were quickly making plans to prevent attacks on civilians and enforce a no-fly zone in Libya with the help of Arab countries.

    Re: UN authorizes no-fly zone over Libya

    yesterday, we saw hillary's camp leaking that she was OUT because she just couldn't take the presiden't "indecision" anymore

    DAILY: Obama’s indecision on Libya has pushed Clinton over the edge « InvestmentWatch

    "unprofessional," "amatuer:" these were the clintonistas' words

    today, fp reports that our eu allies are "completely puzzled" by the president's pretzel-like posture

    European governments

    another p-u-n-t

    and THIS TIME it's to the utterly ineffectual un

    whether you favor united states action above tripoli or oppose, and admittedly it's a very difficult question, one would hope that all agree they expect their president to LEAD

    americans expect their commander in chief to HAVE a position, y'know, on geopolitcal events

    he still hasn't articulated any semblance of an answer, for instance, to the mexican drug cartels

    as for iran, he still hasn't forsworn his completely preposterous pledge to pow-wow with persia's poohbahs---sans preconditions

    when it comes to china, he's a chump, allows himself to be choreographed by the champion chairman

    i'm not talking about libya, here

    i'm talking about OBAMA

    i'm painting the picture of THE MAN---as seen by the likes of HILLARY CLINTON

    by the likes of CHRIS VAN HOLLEN (former dccc) and ANTHONY WEINER and STENY HOYER and STEVE ISRAEL (current dccc)

    Democrats wonder: What's our plan? - Jonathan Allen - POLITICO.com

    today, 64 senators, 32 from each aisle, wrote a letter calling upon the president TO LEAD

    Sixty-four senators call on Obama to take up tax and entitlement reform - The Hill's On The Money

    that's KERRY and KLOBUCHAR and DURBIN (the whip) and WYDEN (progressive public option proponent) and CARPER and DIFI (one of the few adults in the party) and BOTH nelsons (in big trouble in 12) and COONS (the ex college marxist who whacked the witch in delaware) and KOHL (in wisconsin) and CONRAD (the budget chair who quit) and MANCHIN (who won west virginia by planting a bullet in cap and trade) and MCCASKILL (maybe the most tell tale democrat today in upper house)...

    can YOU deny what ALL THESE PEOPLE are saying?

    it's right in front of you

    america, even in good times, has never seen such a LEADERSHIP VOID

    it's embarrassing

    My advice to Obama - come the **** out and say what you really think. Stop trying to pass it off with the "concerned citizen with a voice" act, or the morally nuetral/objective, brotherhood of man, etc. Come out and say where you really stand.

    Re: UN authorizes no-fly zone over Libya

    The key in my mind is where it says:
    all necessary measures" to protect civilians from attacks by his advancing forces.
    This is an open invitation to do just about what ever you can think of to stop Gaddafi's forces. This could as I suggested before on another thread include striking all military targets and I would include a direct targeting of Gaddafi as well.
