Interesting. From one day to the next we seem to swing with the breeze.

(AFP)- UN Security Council members agreed on a draft resolution that will impose a no-fly zone over Libya, diplomats in New York said. The decision will be brought up for a vote later in the day.

Earlier, American ambassador to the UN Susan Rice told reporters that the UN may need to contemplate steps that go beyond the no-fly zone.

This. If they were willing to fight their own battles I might considering giving a shit about what they say.that's an understandable sentiment, but the heavy lifting will be done by nato and we have stated that we won't do anything without un authorization and arab participation...

the no fly zone will come too late and won't do the job unless we also attack the regime's tanks and heavy artillery - they're what's killing the rebels moreso than air attacks...
