Time to fight for what's right
In Benghazi, the main opposition stronghold, a large crowd watching the vote on an outdoor TV projection burst into celeb- ration as green and red fireworks filled the air, as broadcast live on the Al-Jazeera satellite TV channel. The resolution came just a few hours after Gaddafi warned residents of Benghazi that his forces would show "no mercy" in an impending assault on the city.
Based on the ruthlessness we have seen over the last few days as his troops and mercenaries blasted Zâwiyah and the central coast towns, there's every reason to expect the ranting monster to be as good, or as evil, as his word.
But Britain and France, at least, seem prepared to act quickly.
