    ...then tell UN to enforce it:

    Cairo, Egypt (CNN) -- The Arab League voted Saturday to back a no-fly zone in Libya and is asking that the U.N. Security Council impose the measure, officials of the regional body told reporters.

    "It has one goal: To protect the civilian population," Amre Moussa, the body's secretary-general said.

    "We will inform the U.N. Security Council of our request to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya," Moussa said. "The U.N. Security Council should decide how it will be enforced."

    I'm glad they "back" a no-fly zone. Now they should get out there with their fighter planes and supress the Libyan Air Force. Why should the US lift a finger?

    We have almost zero interests in that part of the world. The oil there is exported to Europe, mostly France. Let them worry about it.
  3. Good! Let Ban Ki Moon now and his troops enforce it then:

  4. Lets send in the F16s and finish off Gaddafi and his terrorist sons, who ordered the Pan Am terrorism. All it takes is a single tactical nuke on Tripoli.

    He's the Arab's monster, let the Arab's take care of him. Look what happened last time we hastened the demise of the thorn in the Arab region's side.

    Agree. Let the arabs deal with him.

    They are "demanding a no-fly zone". Hilarious. Let them do it themselves, we're busy killing pakis, afghans and iraqis.
  7. I agree. Not our problem. Not a single US resource should be used.
