I should think that is some thing the UN could do in situations like this, honestly what else are they good for?

American aircraft carriers are already posturing themselves for the Go-Ahead as shown on this link:

I disagree with US spy-intelligence that 'Gaddafi's forces must prevail'. History shows that victory does not inevitably go to the tyrant who 'has the biggest best armed forces'. The CIA/US said the same about the old Shah regime in Iran: It would prevail against any attempt at dethronment, because the Shah had the best military hardware (and so on). Nonsense. I don't support the current Iranian government - I am merely observing that the US was wrong about the Shah maintaining control because 'he had all the best military hardware'.

Consider the situation in Libya. The Libyan people have been oppressed by Gaddafi for decades. Gaddafi using his forces to massacre his own people is the last straw (so to speak). We ought not to underestimate the Libyan people's ability to resist and kept resisting, even when their own ostensible leader is trying to murder them to prop up his corrupt regime. The US certainly should not be guessing that the outcome will be 'status quo as usual'. Who is/are the leaders of the Libyan opposition? The US should be opening dialogue with them, as a show of confidence in Libya's future.

Gaddafi, his family and all of his cronies will probably emerge unscathed - it will be the Libyan people that suffer.

Unfortunately this creep has the fire-power to crush the opposition. Very sad. If the US doesn't intervene noone else will.

sign the petition to recognize the LNTC as legitimate representative for the Libyan people, in opposition to the regime of Ghadafi, who have violated UN resolution 1970 by committing crimes against humanity

Gaddafi is paying mercenaries to fight for his family to stay in power. No one is fighting for him because they want him to remain. NATO should send help to the people as too many people are being killed and will be enslaved.

When I see this hard to decide which is the most out of touch with reality the ones who supply the weapons to the deranged or the actual totally off balance one. Responsibility is the key issue here blindly arming the regime then looking the other way as long as the ugly black slime keeps flowing through the pipes there are so many guilty parties it boggles in their case mind not the correct term.

When the end comes,Gaddafi and his family will find refuge in a totalitarian/terrorist country. The question is when? How many people have to die while this insane man is in power? THEN, will he be extradited to be put on trial?

I do not agree that the US should intervene I think reading Care 2 threads they have enough problems at home financially if they do they will be ridiculed and if they do not they will be ridiculed Let the Arab countries spend their money and sort it out
I hope UK does not get involved as we also have massive debt We have to look after our own countries and people first . The US should sort out its Health system for US citizens before they help anyone at this time.That is my opinion i

I am not a big supporter of using military force, but Ghaddafi's brutality must be stopped.

Mentally ill bully!

Gaddafi, his family and all supporters are mentally sick. How he can even continue to kill people of his country is a disgrace. He needs to leave his so called post and allow that country to regain some sort of peace.

The US and the rest of the western world, as well as the UN and NATO, must sit this one out. It's none of their business. Let the African Union and the Arab League sort this out - it is THEIR business to deal with one or the rogue leaders in their neck of the woods. We can sympathize and empathize with the people of Libya and hope that justice will be done - BUT THAT IS ALL...

Kit B, " I should think that is some thing the UN could do in situations like this,honestly what else are they good for?" They could not do any thing for the Black Africans in Darfur/Sudan who were killed by Sudani/Arabs. But they /UN is only good for condemning Israel.
marie tc, Agree with you, USA must stay out of Libya's internal affairs.Let African Union and Arab League sort it out. see

The Arab League has passed a resolution supporting a no fly zone. You are right Surjit and Marena.
Let them sort out this awful mess instead of expecting everyone else to do their dirty work.
It's high time the Arab countries took responsibility for their own backyard.
