UN Votes To Intervene In Libya
The UN Security Council has just passed a resolution to intervene in the ongoing crisis in Libya.
Earlier today Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has warned Libyan rebels in their stronghold of Benghazi that his forces are coming within hours and there would be no mercy for those who fight them. This undoubtedly added increased pressure for the UN to act quickly.
I would expect that there have been battleplans drawn up in advance which were mearly waiting for the green light from the UN. In light of Obamas lack of intresest in international affairs these days I would anticipate the initial military action to come from Great Britian or France.
