Obama's address on Libya

No mention of asking Congress for a declaration of war, which absolutely should be done if we're getting involved. Shooting down planes, invading airspace, attacking radar installations, etc. is certainly an act of war. I'm tired of our executive branch declaring wars for us. It's blatantly unconstitutional.

Obama Said no ground forces will be used, which is reassuring. But what if air power isn't enough? Are we willing to lose to Qaddafi if air power can't defeat him? How many innocent Libyans are going to be killed by our bombs?
  • Sullivan's second round-up of Libya reactions here.
  • MSNBC was reporting that loyalist forces were continuing to attack despite the unilateral cease-fire order. I think that cease-fire was a sham.
