SHOULD THE MILITARY INTERVENE IN LIBYA?

As we speak, Colonel Gadhafi is in his redoubt in Tripoli, strafing his enemies with machine guns and vowing to stay put until the last drop of blood, his and thousands of Libyans.

Out side powers are now considering military intervention of some sort.   The one most spoken about is a no-fly zone.  This would mean that the anti-aircraft facilities in Libya would have to be bombed and destroyed.  Then the air space over Libya could be occuppied by NATO planes.  This would mean that Gadhafi could not bomb andd strafe his own people from the air.  A blood bath would be avoided.

Should the miliary intervene in Libya to stop a blood bath?

Would you favour establishing a no-fly zone over Libya?

What do you think?

    Oh, yes! I would just love to see the Nobel-PEACE-PRIZE winning president commit his military to killing Libyans.

    What fun that would be…and I’m referring to the mental gymnatics the likes of Neil McKenty will have to go through in order to explain it, not the actual killing of our fellow human beings which, of course, will be a horrible tragedy.

    Don’t worry, be happy, the African Union will do the liberating.

    Right on, Jim. The African Union and some other Arab states.

    Let the last drop of Gadhafi’s blood soon stiffen in the desert air…

    It looks like we’re in. We just aren’t talking about it.
