    Go into Libya with the UN and keep peace, halt all airspace, reason with the French, and make sure that there are no more Americans in Libya or Tripoli.

    A no-fly zone would bring on int'l distruction of the anti-aircraft batteries, amonst other things. That could cause unintentional injury to the people nearby. We must have faith in the people of Lybia to take back their country. We can help with humanitarian aid.
