LIBYA WILL NOW GET BOOTS ON THE GROUND
Libya now needs boots on the ground
The President of the Council on Foreign Relations, Richard Haass, tells us what is going to happen next in Libya:
"Some sort of international assistance, and most likely an international force, is likely to be needed for some time to restore and maintain order...
"It is up to Nato, the European Union and the UN, working with the Libyan opposition, the African Union, and the Arab League, to put together a response to the new Libyan reality ... a country capable of producing some 2bn barrels of oil a day.
"Most importantly, US president Barack Obama may need to reconsider his assertion that there would not be any American boots on the ground..."
Planned Libya Invasion
1300 civilians killed in one day.
