No Fly Zone Over Libya

As the crisis in Libya deepens the pressure on the international community is increasing to intervene and stop the violence taking place against the Libyan people. the latest update is from Britain's David Cameron who is suggesting a no-fly zone over Libya to prevent the Libyan military from firing upon protestors from the sky.

Barak Seener, a research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute, told Al Jazeera that any UN resolution backing a no-fly zone
would have to demand that the no-fly zone is not open ended and subject to review at certain intervals.

Despite all this and an estimated 1000+ people killed, along with the 140,000 Libyans who are fleeing to cross the border to Tunisia and Egypt, Colonel Gaddafi continues to live in denial claiming that the people love him.
