The awesome might and height of intervention pummels Libya but not to save. To conquer. It's the beginning.
At least 110 Tomahawk missiles fired at Libya: US.
Collateral damage , no problem.
"US admiral Mike Mullen claims no-fly zone is now in place with minimal collateral damage, but the Libyan military claims 48 civilians have been 'martyred' "
Are they targeting Gadaffi? When they say no, you can bet it's yes.
"Part of an administrative building at Muammar Gaddafi's compound at Bab al-Aziziya in Tripoli has been "completely destroyed", an AFP journalist reports.
"We are not targeting his residence," United States Vice Admiral Bill Gortney said in response to reports of smoke rising from the area of Gaddafi's palace.
The Arab League in sanctioning the no-fly zone in Libya now regrets its action.
"What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone, and what we want is the protection of civilians and not the bombardment of more civilians," -Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa
Not the first time the world in general and Arabs in particular had been hoodwinked by the Neocolonialists even after the Iraq debacle thru deceit and lies of WMD, it has the same modus operandi.
"In the case of Libya, it is necessary to be very careful with the information that reaches us. One day there is talk of 2,000 deaths, and the next day the count is revised to 300. It was also being said from the very start of the crisis that Gaddafi was bombing his own people, but the Russian army, which is observing the situation by satellite, has officially given lie to that information."
"The region could well escape US control. Intervention in Libya would allow Washington to smash this revolutionary movement and stop it spreading to the rest of the Arab world and to Africa."
Apart from the obvious precious resource they can get their hands on, the western sphere of influence has been severely wrecked by the events in Egypt.
