Libya: western leaders call for Nato to target Gaddafi

First, we were only going to run the no-fly zone until NATO could take over. Then over the weekend we hear the latest, a USAF unmanned aerial vehicle takes out a Libyan rocket launcher. So much for bringing the troops home. Then we heard that no, we really didn't want to target Qaddafi, merely support the rebels to the point where they could do it themselves. Now we hear what should not surprise anyone, the West wants to target Qaddafi. Given the West's ability to pick winners in the game of national leaders, I really think we should take a pass. Qaddafi has been very successful in suppressing any opposition so we really have no idea who could take over in the event Qaddafi steps down or is killed.

Originally I thought we would see $5 per gallon by the summer. Now I'm not so sure we won't see $6.

NATO forces should target Libyan forces not Libyans so finally Libyan forces will defeat they do not target their people.
