The sooner the 'intervention' begins the better, it will more than likely pull the Libyan military away from the rebel cities.
"No occupying forces" were words in the UN Resolution. President Obama is magnificent. I am grateful to Secretary Clinton for 'being there' and conducting the direction of this initiative. UN Ambassador Rice is awesome.
I sincerely believe at this point it is best for the rebels to find areas of shelter and wait for their freedom to be delivered. The onslaught that is about to commence is not the kind of weapons they are used to seeing in Libya and they may over estimate their ability to be discerned from targets.
THE REBELS NEED TO GET OUT OF THE WAY !!!!!!

Libya unrest: UK reaction to UN vote in quotes (click title to entry - thank you)..."We have said for a long time that there should be three criteria for being able to take action under this kind of authorisation - a demonstrable need, and the actions and statements of the Gaddafi regime in recent days have provided that demonstrable need; secondly, a clear legal basis, this is the clear legal basis in a resolution of the United Nations Security Council; and third, broad support from within the region itself, and that is evident in the statement of the Arab League and the readiness to participate in a no-fly zone.
As of tonight, those three criteria are satisfied and fulfilled....
TODAY, WORDS BECOME A NEW REALITY.
