Getting Desperate

It has been almost 3 months since the West started their campaign to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi from power and they are getting desperate. In case there are some people who doubt me; the desperation is official!

General David Richards, Britain's chief of defense staff, has warned loudly that NATO must broaden the range of targets it is bombing in Libya to infrastructure targets or they will fail to remove Muammar Gaddafi. Now some will argue that this is NOT a sign of desperation but you must remember the U.N. mandate being used as an excuse to attack Libya is a “no-fly zone” in order to “protect” civilians.

A “no-fly zone”; tell me does infrastructure (buildings, bridges etc) fly? Bad enough that Western forces are giving covering fire to rebel forces but now they intend to destroy buildings, bridges as well. Yes, they are officially getting desperate.
