More to the point, without knowing exactly what the U.N. resolution states, you really can't determine for sure what's going to happen because we don't know what the resolution actually calls for. (I tried to find the resolution calling for Libyan air strikes but it's not posted at the U.N.'s website yet.)
    For those interested, I found all three UN resolutions concerning recent events in Libya.

    U.N. Resolution 1970 (2011) - imposes sanctions against Libya.

    U.N. Resolution 1971 (2011) - imposes no-fly zone

    U.N. Resolution 1973 (2011) - strengthens arms embargo already in force under UNR 1970

    The UN could be taken more seriously if all those voting for those measures actually participated in them. But as most of them vote, but stay on the sidelines, what does their vote mean?

    It really means they will give their approval for other nations, notably the United States, to spend their money and risk their peoples lives, while the others get to remain in safety while voicing their disapproval of the way it was handled. It's like the Pope writing a manual for the Honeymoon night.

    It is well past bizarre and yet for some obscure reason we continue to accept this irrational system. Doesn't anyone have the nerve to tell the corrupt UN to just f off? It's well past time.

    Many feel Eric Holder's presence in the Obama Administration has also got to end.

    If you actually read the article, it is clear that Obama is not going to occupy Libya. That said, his choice of words is abysmal and sends the wrong message. I expect better given the speaking skills he demonstrated during his campaign.

    Didnt the UN impose 17 resolutions mandating that Iraq and Saddam give direct accounting for his WMD programs?

WTF!!!
    GWB gave three reasons for attacking Iraq. All three are undeniable. Genocide, Iraqs ties to global terrorism, and Iraqs refussal to comply with the UN resolutions regarding disposition of his WMDs (all 17 of them, which he repeatedly ignored).

    "They underscored their shared commitment to the goal of helping provide the Libyan people an opportunity to transform their country, by installing a democratic system that respects the people’s will."


    According to sentence, the installers will be the Libyan people.

    Otherwise you have Obama underscored his commitment "by installing a democratic system." He has not installed any such thing, so it doesn't really make much sense to read the sentence that way.

    It makes much more sense, (but less outrage and fuming), to read the sentence as the Libyan people as the intended installers.

    Obviously, YMMV.
    I may be wrong.
