    Have they flown any actual sorties, yet? Or, is it just a dog-n-pony show at this point?

    Something like this, to be successful, has to have a long term committment. The Brits and the French can't carry on sustained long term operations that are needed here. Qatar sure as hell can't. They will find a jumping off point and leave the United States holding the bag. There's already alot more American involvement that we were told there was going to be and I'm sure that we'll become more and more involved in the coming weeks.
    Without regime change this is all a waste of time and money.

    I agree and John Kerry has already said that the mission isn't regime change.

    What do you mean by actual sorties? They are flying over Libya. What more do you want?

    This was from your own link Spud.

    Colonel Gaddafi earlier flouted his own ceasefire and the UN resolution by continuing heavy artillery bombardment on the eastern city as tanks were reported in the streets.

    I support this effort but have lots of problems with it. What happened to "Gaddafi must leave"?
    Ousting of Gaddafi is not part of the UN resolution.

    Wiki is reliable if one looks at the sources.

    I want to see smoking tanks and artillery positions.

    I want Gaddafi and his murdering scum running for their lives with the rebels right on their heels.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    I'm well aware of that.

    It was kinda why I was asking what has changed from a few weeks ago when the US position was "Gaddafi must leave"?

    What you want and what the UN resolution is about is a whole different thing, fortunately.
