Military action against Gaddafi possible “within hours” after UN vote

  If the UN Security Council adopts a resolution on Libya, one can expect foreign military strikes on that country’s territory as early as this night. This was reported by French diplomatic sources. They specified that the attacks will target the Libyan military positions.

  The draft resolution is tabled by France and Britain. The U.S. has expressed support for the document. Germany, however, refuses to participate in a military attack on Libya. According to the Russian side, the draft needs clarification, since many issues are not resolved, says Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich. Moscow believes that use of force to resolve the Libyan issue is unlikely to result in a positive outcome.
