Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander George Joulwan shares his expertise about decision-making in the changing Mideast.
All of the major towns and cities in Libya are within 100 miles of the coast, most are on the coast. Instead on deploying a conventional 'no fly zone, as described in your interview with George Joulwan, with planes, another approach would be to position some ships offshore with ground to air missiles and then let the regime know that you will use them if they fly. Just the threat of this should be enough, if not then a pilot being locked on might be enough to deter them. The point is I think our 'expert' could look at this a different way. Even if this is not 99% perfect at least we are doing something to stop these killings. You don't need to bomb Libya of its air defenses, you don't need planes, you don't need to risk anyone's life.
