Unbelievable… “U.N. Approves Airstrikes to Halt Attacks by Qaddafi Forces.”
After days of often acrimonious debate, played out against a desperate clock, as Colonel Qaddafi’s troops advanced to within 100 miles of the rebel capital of Benghazi, Libya, the Security Council authorized member nations to take “all necessary measures” to protect civilians, diplomatic code words calling for military action.
Diplomats said the resolution — which passed with 10 votes, including the United States, and abstentions from Russia, China, Germany, Brazil and India — was written in sweeping terms to allow for a wide range of actions, including strikes on air-defense systems and missile attacks from ships. Military activity could get under way within a matter of hours, they said.
I really don’t like seeing this happen… Yes, as Hillary Clinton has said, “Qadhafi must go.”
But look at how we’re going about this… behind closed doors in sercet meetings. Aren’t we the ones who condemned this sort of stuff from the last administration.
Yes, this is unbelievable and so disheartening. We just don’t need another war.
