"Well, you know, lots of people throw around phrases of 'no-fly zone,' and they talk about it as though it's just a game on a video game or something, and some people who throw, throw that line out have no idea what they're talking about." -- Bill Daley, White House Chief of Staff

...

Of course, the two people calling for a no-fly zone in Libya are John Kerry and John McCain.

Yeah, what could the two most famous Vietnam veterans with over 50 years in the U.S. Congress know about that war stuff compared a hack from a Chicago political family.

No liberal empathy for Libyan families?

I happen to agree with Bill Daley on this one. The Generals keep having to remind people that this would require BOMBING the crap outta Libya up front to make sure they don't have anti-air capabilities. Either that or we risk getting our stuff shot down.

I get the distinct impression that people aren't factoring that bit in when they throw it out there as a possibility.

Edit: Then we bomb their AAA and SAMs. Then they spray-paint "Baby Milk Factory" on some rubble. Thus it begins all over again.

I'm wondering just what sorts of foreign involvement we have already.
Britain seemed at the forefront of the international efforts to "bring Libya into engagement"/"get more Libyan oil". And there are 2 separate reports of small groups of UK forces being active inside Libya.

I wonder how long before China will be actively involved in situations like this. And what their objectives and methods will be.
