Too little Too late....the outcome in Libya has pretty much been decided Khadafy has pretty much beat back the rebels and is now just looking to punish them and show them he is in control...the US waited way too long to get into the game...again

“Hitler did not have to destroy democracy; he merely took advantage of the decay of democracy and at the critical moment obtained the support of many to whom, though they detested Hitler, he yet seemed the only man strong enough to get things done.” F. A. Hayek from his book, "The Road To Serfdom".

After Pres. Reagan reprimanded Gadafi after he bombed the Disco in Germany killing some Americans, Gadafi stopped openly supporting terror against the USA. More recently, he ended his nuke ambitions.

Libya declared a cease-fire Friday and promised to stop all military operations in a bid to fend off international military intervention after the United Nations authorized a no-fly zone and "all necessary measures" to prevent the regime from striking its own people.
Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa said the decision would "take the country back to safety" and ensure security for all Libyans.
"We decided on an immediate cease-fire and on an immediate stop to all military operations," he told reporters.
"(Libya) takes great interest in protecting civilians," he said, adding that the country would also protect all foreigners and foreign assets in Libya.
