The United States is also pressing its European allies to set tough sanctions on the Libyan government, to turn up the heat on Gadhafi and convince his remaining loyalists to abandon the regime, U.S. officials said. The Obama administration also declared it stood ready to aid Libyans seeking to oust their longtime leader.
Clinton will make the administration's case for stronger action to foreign ministers from Britain, France, Germany and Italy when she holds a series of high-level talks Monday in Geneva.

Clinton will also look to coordinate future U.S. sanctions on Gadhafi's government with senior officials from Russia, Australia and the European Union so that the international community presents unified opposition to the attacks that have killed hundreds of people in the North African country, senior administration officials said Sunday.
They spoke after Clinton said the U.S. could offer "any type of assistance" to anti-Gadhafi Libyans organizing in the east of the country, though she made no mention of any U.S. military help to a provisional government that is organizing or of a no-fly zone over the country — as called for by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Joseph Lieberman, a Connecticut independent.
So you still think the U.S. and other Eurpoean Countries are just remaining silent????????????
