US, UK plan no-fly as France delivers supplies to free Libya

Besides the no-fly zone – which is a good idea – the UK is also discussing the possibility of sending weapons to the anti-Gaddafi forces. Organizing and sending in a peace keeping force sounds like a much better option than throwing more weapons into such an environment. The Guardian:

Britain is working on plans for a military no-fly zone over Libya and is considering whether to arm the opposition forces in the east of the country.

David Cameron, the prime minister, said the UK is “taking the lead” on steps to isolate the “illegitimate” Gaddafi regime.

In a statement to the Commons, Cameron said north Africa and the wider Middle East was at the “epicentre of momentous events” sweeping through the region and that “hopes and aspirations which have been smothered for decades are stirring”.
