U.N. Security Council Approves No-Fly Zone in Libya

The United Nations Security Council voted to approve “all necessary measures” to protect citizens in Libya, which allows for a no-fly zone and basically any other steps short of a ground invasion. The vote came shortly after Col. Muammar Gaddafi issued a chilling warning to his people, saying his regime was “coming tonight” to “find you in your closets.” After initially sitting on the fence over intervention, the U.S. became a strong advocate of the no-fly zone, especially after one was approved by the Arab League. “We want to support the opposition who are standing against the dictator,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience in Tunisia on Thursday. “This is a man who has no conscience and will threaten anyone in his way.”
