AP – Former Libyan permanent representative Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgham, left, embraces United States permanent …
By EDITH M. LEDERER, Associated Press – 47 mins ago
UNITED NATIONS – The U.N. Security Council voted Thursday to impose a no-fly zone over Libya and authorize "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from attacks by Moammar Gadhafi's forces, hours after the Libyan leader vowed to crush the rebellion with a final assault on the opposition capital of Benghazi.
The U.N. vote paved the way for possible international air strikes on Gadhafi's advancing military and reflected the past week's swift reversal of the situation in Libya, where once-confident rebels are now in danger of being obliterated by an overpowering pro-Gadhafi force using rockets, artillery, tanks, warplanes. That force has advanced along the Mediterranean coast aiming to recapture the rebel-held eastern half of Libya.
The resolution establishes "a ban on all flights in the airspace of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya in order to help protect civilians." It also authorizes U.N. member states to take "all necessary measures ... to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, including Benghazi, while excluding a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory."
The vote was 10-0 with five countries abstaining including Russia and China, which have veto power in the council, along with India, Germany and Brazil. The United States, France and Britain pushed for speedy approval.
In Benghazi, Al-Jazeera satellite TV channel showed a large crowd watching the vote on an outdoor TV projection burst into celebration as green and red fireworks exploded in the air.
In an interview broadcast just before the Security Council voted, Gadhafi dismissed its actions. "The U.N. Security Council has no mandate. We don't acknowledge their resolutions," he told the Portuguese public Radiotelevisao Portuguesa. He pledged to respond harshly to U.N.-sponsored attacks. "If the world is crazy, we will be crazy too," he said.
U.S. officials have said the authorization for "all necessary measures" provides a legal basis for countries to carry out air strikes to protect civilians from Gadhafi's forces.
"We had said all along that Gadhafi must go," said British Foreign Secretary William Hague. "It is necessary to take these measures to avoid greater bloodshed."
In Britain, a lawmaker with knowledge of defense matters confirmed that British forces were on stand by for air strikes and could be mobilized as soon as Thursday night. The lawmaker declined to be named because the Defense Ministry has not issued official confirmation.
French Prime Minister Francois Fillon told France-2 Television that if the resolution was approved France would support military action against Gadhafi within a matter of hours.
Immediately before the vote, France's Foreign Minister Alain Juppe urged adoption of the resolution saying sanctions imposed by the Security Council on Feb. 26 aren't enough and "violence against the civilian population has been redoubled."
"We cannot let these warmongers ... do this," he said. "We have very little time left. It's a matter of days. It's perhaps a matter of hours. We should not arrive too late."
The resolution also calls for stronger enforcement of the arms embargo, adds names of individuals, companies and other entities to the list of those subject to travel bans and asset freezes, and requires all countries to ban Libyan flights from landing, taking off or overflying their country.
It also demands that Libya ensure the "rapid and unimpeded passage of humanitarian assistance" and asks U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to establish an eight-member panel of experts to assist the Security Council committee in monitoring sanctions.
Russia and China had expressed doubts about the United Nations and other outside powers using force against Gadhafi, a view backed by India, Brazil and Germany who also abstained.
Germany's U.N. Ambassador Peter Wittig expressed fear that using military force could lead to "the likelihood of large-scale loss of life."
Despite the lack of consensus, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said: "Today the Security Council has responded to the Libyan people's cry for help."
She said "Colonel Gadhafi and those who still stand by him continue to grossly and systematically abuse the most fundamental of the human rights of his people."
Gadhafi, in the Radiotelevisao Portuguesa interview, said that he rejected any U.N. threats of action.
"The U.N. Security Council has no mandate," Gadhafi said. "We don't acknowledge their resolutions."
He warned that any military action would be construed as "colonization without any justification" and would have "grave repercussions."
The Arab League has supported the call for a no-fly zone, and Gadhafi said that as a result "it's finished."
The United States joined the resolution's initial supporters — Britain, France and Lebanon — not only in pushing for a speedy vote but also in pressing for action beyond creation of a no-fly zone to protect civilians from air, land and sea attacks by Gadhafi's fighters.
This marked a dramatic about-face by the Obama administration which for weeks hesitated about supporting a no-fly zone, fearing that the United States could get sucked into another war in a Muslim nation.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters in Tunisia on Thursday that a U.N. no-fly zone over Libya would require action to protect the planes and pilots, "including bombing targets like the Libyan defense systems." She said no ground intervention is being considered.
Michael Mann, a spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, called the situation "very worrying" and said the EU was looking to the U.N. Security Council before making further decisions. "We have always said all along that we are planning for all options," he said.
Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, whose government had expressed misgivings about a no-fly zone, proposed that the council vote first on a resolution calling for a cease-fire in Libya. The council refused but added a paragraph in the resolution calling for an immediate cease-fire "and a complete end to violence and all attacks against, and abuses of, civilians."
France and Britain failed to win support for a no-fly zone during a two-day meeting of Group of Eight foreign ministers in Paris on Tuesday and the G-8's final communique did not mention a flight ban, leaving any action to the Security Council.

A no fly zone is just the UNs pussy way of trying to ensure Gadaffis government is finished.  Oil control?  Ehhh, that may be a stretch to say thats the SOLE reason, but its probably A reason.

We need to learn that no matter what we do there will be people in power that don't like us and vice versa.  Bottom line is:  who cares.  Most of these governments (of so called "enemy" type nations) have armies who can barely fend off their own citizens, much less cause any overseas damage.



Money like Draymond Green.....yuuup

Meanwhile ignore Bahrain and Saudi Arabia?
Bomb the prick? It seems like he is going against these evil cold blooded mother fuckers in one way or another
What makes those rebel/western backed, the "best" leader?
Why are we ignoring actual footage of saudis and bahranians shooting protestors in cold blood
The only answer seems to be that libya and egypt establishments were going against whatever vile plan they have in mind, whereas they already own and entirely control Bahrain and Saudi Arabia
Plus...more wars = More DU = more poisoning of the planet

Maybe! I'm glad Germany stays out of it by now but we have 2 important elections in the near future, so afterwards it could very well change.

This is already turning into a clusterfuck. Good on the Germans for pulling out of the alliance.

How familiar this is: illegal, undeclared war with no stated mission or timetable. Iraq? Afghanistan? Vietnam? Same shit different day.

Then u have one of Britains brass saying it could take 30 years!

This is ridiculous.

I never said ignore them, the way I see it, taking out Gaddafi just means one less asshole. Let his own people tear him to shreds and do business with the next guy.
I don't think Gaddafi cares about being an anti-illuminati freedom fighter. I really doubt Gaddafi is doing it because he watches Prison Planet TV, and even if he is, he lost credibility long ago with his methods. Gaddafi looks out for Gaddafi. Mubarak and Gaddafi were both down until the opposition just got too overwhelming. Its interesting the role social media now plays in mobilizing dissent. I just heard Facebook is banned in Vietnam.
