The Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, is calling the initial phase of a multi-national effort to take control of Libyan airspace a success. Mullen says Libyan command-and-control centers and air defense installations have been struck, and that leader Moammar Gadhafi’s forces effectively are grounded.
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — A defiant Moammar Gadhafi vowed a "long war" after the U.S. and European militaries blasted his forces with airstrikes and over 100 cruise missiles early Sunday, hitting air defenses and at least two major air bases and shaking the Libyan capital with explosions and anti-aircraft fire.
Secretary of State Clinton’s assertion that the United States “did not lead” is belied by the large role the United States played in launching an UN-sanctioned assault on Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi's military capabilities. U.S. warships fired more than 110 Tomahawk missiles into Libyan territory to disable air-defense systems.
After weeks of warning from the Pentagon about the downsides of launching a no-fly zone over Libya, the U.S. and its major European allies declared war on Muammar Gaddafi and his forces holding on to power in the north African nation.
A U.S.-led military mission in Libya has effectively imposed a no-fly zone and blasted some of Moammar Gadhafi's ground forces outside the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen said Sunday.
(Reuters) - U.S. forces led the biggest military intervention in the Arab world since the invasion of Iraq on Saturday, but President Barack Obama insisted that U.S. involvement would be limited as part of an international effort to protect Libyan civilians.
Updated: 4:10 pm With air strikes apparently imminent against the forces of Muammar Gaddafi, America faces a simple question: why is the U.S. going to war in Libya? There may be good reasons, even compelling ones.
At the start of this week, the consensus around Washington was that military action against Libya was not in the cards. However, in the last several days, the White House completely altered its stance and successfully pushed for the authorization for military intervention against Libyan leader Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi. What changed?
While the American and international debate over Libya continues, the situation in Bahrain has just taken a sharp turn for the worse. A brutal crackdown on the protestors followed the controversial entry of security forces from Saudi Arabia and three other GCC states.
Djibouti’s government ordered a U.S.-backed democracy-advocacy group to leave the country, less than a month before the country holds a presidential election. Democracy International, based in Bethesda, Maryland, had attempted to resolve problems with President Ismael Guelleh’s administration that began after opposition protests started in the country last month, Chris Hennemeyer, head of the group’s electoral-observation mission, said in an e-mailed statement. “Unfortunately my earlier optimism proved to be unfounded,” Hennemeyer said. “The Djiboutian government has confirmed its order that DI cease all activities and we are complying with their directive.”
