Libyan president Gaddafi has done so much damage not only to his country but to the entire world. He killed his own citizens who protest his 40-year-old rule. Now, the United Nations has voted for an airstrike on Gadafi’s military forces. Enough is enough. The UN and the US must save the world from Gadafi’s reign. Look at the price of oil escalating every day because of Gadafi’s damage.
Agence France Presse – The UN Security Council Thursday authorized air strikes to halt Moammar Gadhafi’s offensive against embattled rebel forces in Libya, with the first bombing raids possible within hours.
The council voted to permit “all necessary measures” to impose a no-fly zone, protect civilian areas and impose a ceasefire on Gadhafi’s military. Enforcement will rely on air power as the resolution rules out sending ground troops.
Celebratory gunfire immediately rang out across Libya’s main rebel-held city of Benghazi. Tracer bullets streaked across the night sky as preachers at mosques shouted “God is greatest!” over loudspeakers.
“This resolution demands an immediate ceasefire and a complete end to violence and attacks against civilians,” the US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, said. (Sara Hussein)
