    Default UN OKs Libya airstrikes, no-fly zone

    Military action could follow within hours;

    "The U.N. Security Council authorized a no-fly zone over Libya and called for Arab states and others to use "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from attacks by Moammar Gadhafi's forces.
    The resolution passed 10-0 with five abstentions, including Russia and China.
    The resolution establishes “a ban on all flights in the airspace of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya" while excluding an occupation force. It also calls for freezing the assets of the Libyan National Oil Corp. and the central bank because of links to Gadhafi."

    Looks like President Obama couldn't have been too busy on the golf course.

    "The United States would likely use bombers and fighter planes, possibly including F-16s, F-15s and F-22s, to strike ground targets, U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff General Norton Schwartz has said.
    Congressional officials Thursday said the Obama administration is readying plans to participate in a no-fly zone with the help of Arab countries including Jordan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates."

    the U.S. had a vote in the UN resilutions to approve the no fly zone. The person representing the U.S. would not have voted for it without the approval of the President of the United States. I would imagine if President Obama is Commander In Chief of the Armed Forces he would have to approve using the Military to carry out the No Fly Zone in Libya wouldn't he???????

    Roger, Obama, like you don't have a clue to what is going on. Obama does what he is told.

    I have my doubt that anyone in the senior leadership, other that SecDef Gates, knows the difference between air superiority and air supremacy. Fortunately, we will only be in a combat support role....AWACS/Rivet Joint and tankers....in the early days.

    All I have to say about a U N intervention against Kadafi is;

    the devil you know is better than the devil you don't know.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Anyone know what the literacy rate in Libya is? What percentage of folks have computers....access to the WWW? Can the Libyan uprising be attributed to social-networking sites spreading mal-content as it was in Egypt? Does anyone think US psyops is behind any of this? (when they're not busy influencing our congressmen)

    I find it interesting that all these uprisings are occurring now, all of the sudden, with the only explanation being Facebook and twitter enabled all this organization.
