No fly-zone, No drive-zone

March 17, 2011

Appears the US is pushing for a security counsel resolution authorizing a no-fly zone and air strikes on Libyan targets. This would be the precursor to the US and others taking direct military action against the Colonel. It will also likely lead to (at least temporarily) a divided Libya. In a worst case scenario it commits the US to helping (i.e. with supplies and military support). Could be the Arab Berlin Airlift. Pretty safe to assume that if the US unleashes the drones and airforce that the Colonels ground assets could be chewed up fast. He may still have the ability to sow terror in Benghazi via mercenaries and combatants in civillian garb.
