What a no-fly zone vote means for Libya

The U.N Security Council voted to impose a no-fly zone in Libya Thursday. The vote allows measures to be taken against Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in hopes of halting his rapid advances against rebel positions in his country.

Fawaz Gerges, director of the Middle East Centre at the London School of Economics, discusses the U.N. Security Council’s vote with American Morning's Kiran Chetry and Christine Romans.

    JULIE: Not really to much to add. You have covered it quite well.
    However, I am so fed up with our "elected children" who jump on their bandwagon to spout, and throw tantrums, no matter what the President does.

    I am definetly against war, but, what else could we do? We do not want another rowanda, where people are just constantly slaughtered.
    This coo coo goofy guy wanted to go house to house and murder people. He has gone off the deep end for decades, his sons are just as wacko as he is. They should have put him out of earth's misery when he bombed that plane.
    Some of these families of people that were killed on that plane will finally get justice.
    He gives the Muslim world a really bad concept on their religion, attempting to justify this and joining Nato, will help to establish that they do not tolerate evil like him. We have to learn to respect good and conquer evil people, no matter what religion anyone chooses to follow. I have known many Muslims, most are non violent people, I respect them, and they do me. Only problem I see is fact of no one wants to come out and condemn the bad people, and now they are, Hurray. Hope it all ends quickly, and these people have the democracy they so are yearning for..
    Hurray for Egypt, my favorite place, so hope things work out for them..
