Arab League Approves No-Fly Zone
The U.S. and U.K. expressed support for the Arab League's approval of a no-fly zone as Libyan rebels beat a hasty eastward retreat, but is the council's action too little, too late?
With Western powers giving deference to regional organizations, the Arab League has approved a no-fly zone over Libya, but is the action too little, too late? "Despite the League's request, it remains unclear how effective a no-fly zone over Libya might be as Libyan rebels continue to lose key cities and towns to Col. Muammar Qadaffi's forces. Agence France-Presse reports that Libyan rebels fled the oil town of Brega Sunday, as Colonel Qadaffi's forces continued to advance toward the rebel-held city of Benghazi in the east. AFP notes that the rebels' morale had been bolstered by the Arab League's call for a no-fly zone, which came before the retreat from Brega."
