Libya and a No-Fly Zone

The imperative is for the Western nations to be seen to be doing something rather than nothing.  This would give a clear signal to those who oppose the current regime that, internationally, they are not alone and also a powerful reminder to those who currently support Col Qaddafi that there is no breathing space or time for manoevre and that there will be repercussions if the daily toll of murder continues.

......... time is of the essence; we know that sanctions are not likely to have any visible impact, so I would hope at the very least that a "no-fly zone" could be established as soon as possible.
