Impose no-fly zone over Libya

The Arab League has called on the UN Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over Libya to protect the civilian population from the airborne attacks of Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi. The Libyan-British writer Alaa al Ameri supports this initiative in the left-liberal daily El País: "The rebels' demands for a no-fly zone over Libya should be met. Without access to Libya's airspace Gaddafi's regime won't be able to stock up on weapons and mercenaries, nor bomb liberated cities. ... The world should also stop referring to Gaddafi as 'the Libyan leader'. He is not the Libyan leader. All he is now is a warlord who is attacking freed cities all over the country and holding the inhabitants of Tripoli hostage. ... The people of Libya have shown that they are on the path to a major democratic revolution. The question now is: is the memory of our own fight for democracy fresh enough in our memories to compel us to help them to victory?"
