Quote of the Day – Will Defense Secretary set up No Fly Zone over Libya?
“Let’s just call a spade a spade: A no-fly zone begins with an attack on Libya to destroy the air defenses.”
He added that the operation would require more warplanes than are on a single U.S. aircraft carrier. The United States is moving naval and air forces closer to Libyan shores and has called for Gadhafi to give up power immediately, but that’s as far as it goes at this point.
So… how would you like another mid-east war? Doesn’t look like Gates wants it.
