First country recognizes rebels as Libya's true government as Gaddafi forces intensify onslaught on Libyan rebels
Qaddafi bombs tanker in first blow to Libya's oil infrastructure, Rebel leader calls for 'immediate action' on no-fly zone
France on Thursday became the first country to formally recognize Libya's opposition National Transitional Council as the legitimate government. Seems to me like we are going to start recognizing the opposition as the legal Government and then find it necessary to come to their aid with a no fly zone.
First country recognizes rebels as Libya's true government as Gadaffi's war planes move deeper into the country What do you think?
A team working for the BBC in Libya said it was arrested, tortured and subjected to a mock execution by security forces of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's regime. BBC crew beaten by regime henchmen
Britain and Germany want EU emergency summit to call for Libyan leader to step down, as pressure grows over no-fly zone UK pushes EU to demand that Gaddafi quit

The head of the interim government in eastern Libya pleaded Wednesday for the international community to move quickly to impose a no-fly zone over Libya, declaring that any delay would result in more casualties. "It has to be immediate action" I agree but it would be another war in a Muslim country regardless of how good our intention is. A no fly zone is war then we would have to go after resources on the ground. Rebel leader calls for 'immediate action' on no-fly zone I'd say we are at about the end of that regime but the people's suffering has just begun!
A no fly zone is not as easy as it sounds. All the surface to air missiles will have to be taken out and it is an act of war. It would need regional support in fact it should be done by the Arab League and the African Union who have expressed an interest. Regardless of the war monger outcry from Republicans in the United States we must keep hands off and boots of the ground. Our help should be logistic. If they can't do it, oh well!
No-Fly Zone Over Libya a 'No-Brainer'? Yes it is with Gaddafi using Russian built Hinds helicopter to machine gun and slaughter his so called people there are increasing calls for a no fly zone enforced by NATO or the US by Libyans rebels and war mongers such as McCain and Lieberman but that said a no fly zone can be tutored by NATO and the US but it is a must it must have an Arab and or African union face! Arab League Opposes Foreign Intervention in Libya Arabs may impose Libya no fly zone in cooperation with the African union
Someone in the inner circle must do the country a favor and kill the mad Gaddafi family! We are at a major and serious crossroads and must keep an African Libyan face on this fight and hopeful victory for the people whatever that entails! If Gaddafi is allowed to murder his own people who only want a voice in their future it will send the message around the entire world that all these revolts can be dealt with extreme violence in order to keep the status quo.
Bottom line on this issue, anything being done has got to be done by Libyan's, they must do the heavy lifting and if there is any outside help it must come from the Arab League and the African Union who we can reinforce and advise but that is it. This is the right and only way to go about it! Otherwise I do remember Russia and China saying it could be done and sanctioned if it was done By NATO so we will see!
