    There was a crowd of Libyan protestors in a public square near my house. They had no only Libyan rebel flags, but quite a few French flags as well.

    Very interesting.
    It's only a matter of time before the French smoke a few civilians and they start burning those French flags.

    Because, somewhere, someone with a little common sense realized that there was no way to really help the rebs, without attacking government ground units. Next, they're going to figure out that just blowing up a few tanks and artillery pieces, isn't really going to help the rebs much, either.

    Reports suggested Libyan forces intended to deploy 'human shields' to thwart any UN-backed bombing campaign.

    As military forces swung into action, the International Red Cross called on all sides to spare civilians and respect international law as military action began, and said medical staff and ambulances should be allowed access to the wounded.

    Why do they always do this?

    I hope they have them well marked, so there are no mistakes and be damn sure to be up on the UN's push, so they can communicate.

    I salute the French. Rare for me.
    Europeans are incapable of a fight when it suits you guys.....and when it doesn't, its Obama's fault.

    No-fly zone means no-fly zone. They'll probably leave it on the ground.

    Re: French war planes hit four Libyan tanks-Jazeera

    I'm just wondering why it's okay to directly intervene in Libya but not in places like Iran where there were massive student protests a while back and widespread massacres.

    Foreign policy is not consistent.

    Does that mean that the UN aircraft can't fly, either? That's not going to do much good.
