I think China, Russia and Germany believed it would be a 'No Fly Zone', but did not like the wording in the document as it was too open and loose with potential for involvement and air-strikes over the whole of Libya  ..........

They saw that the Arab League had approved it also and believed that by vetoing the mandate it would affect their relationship with Arab countries, and Arab leaders thought that it was a 'No Fly Zone' with direct action only against forces including tanks attacking Benghazi .........

The outcome has shown that China. Russia and Germany were correct in their assessment and now the Arab League are also upset with the arbitrary strikes by the US and Europeans  .............

The strikes on Tripoli show that the mandate is too wide and possibly has a wider agenda than the Arab League believed ........


But, hey ........

What do I know .........

You have already made that point that they are next to useless .............

The action that is happening in Libya at the moment is far more than the suppression of attacks against human life in Benghazi ......

Apparently, it is much wider and not that of containment ........

But rather decapitation of the ruling structure and its forces  .........

Yes ............

Got it .........

The part that displayed showed defiance from Gadaffi after having been attacked .......

But the US never had this threat before the military action ........

So, why are you surprised ......  ?

Libya never waged war on the US .........

And now it has been attacked why shouldn't they offer resistance  ......... ?
