Will a no-fly zone resolve the crisis in Libya? watch

    • Thread Starter

    The UN Security Council has voted to impose a no-fly zone over Libya and "all necessary measures" to protect civilians short of an invasion. Has the right decision been made?
    Following the UN vote, US President Barack Obama called the French and British leaders to discuss the next move. They said Libya had to comply immediately with the resolution.

    US officials say that an attempt to ground Col Gaddafi's air force could begin on Sunday or Monday.

    Rebel forces in Libya have reacted with joy to the resolution in their Benghazi stronghold, but a government spokesman condemned UN "aggression".

    Is a no-fly zone the best way to resolve the crisis in Libya? Are there other viable options? What are the implications for the region?

    Well as long as they don't shy from action. Hopefully they will give a lot of air support to he rebels. But we shall see. Its the best outcome.

    No it won't help very much, it is too late. Thank you UN for showing how useless you are.
