Why U. S. military intervention in Libya?
No to Libya intervention
Want a no fly zone in Libya, send in the Germans, French, and Italians. They are the ones doing business with Libya ahead of the USA that is also doing business with them.
It is time for our allies to pick up the slack.

President Obama said Thursday that he had ordered plans giving the U.S. military "full capacity to act, potentially rapidly," in Libya if the situation there deteriorates.
"I don't want us hamstrung," Obama said. He cited the possibility of a humanitarian crisis, or "a situation in which defenseless civilians were finding themselves trapped and in great danger," or "a stalemate that over time could be bloody" if Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi continues to resist international demands that he step down.
Gaddafi "has lost legitimacy to lead, and he must leave," the president said.”
