PARIS (AP) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday that the U.S. will bring "unique capabilities to bear" in Libya as a global coalition began enforcing a U.N.-authorized no-fly zone to protect civilians from Moammar Gadhafi's forces.
The world will not "sit idly by," she said at a news conference, amid fears that Gadhafi will commit "unspeakable atrocities" against his people.

has she ever heard of North Korea??
Where reading a pamphlet dropped by a balloon is a death penalty offense for you and death camps for your extended family???
Where is that no fly zone?
Impossible. Libya sat on the UN human rights commission just a few weeks ago.....
If these atrocities are against the Muslim Brotherhood, I say bring it on.
Hillary you Idiot Skank, how about the Democrat party Aborting/killing millions of People,Then Waco ,the DDT Ban and the list goes on.
We have been very selective in our duty to intervene.
“The world will not “sit idly by”
Oh, but you all were so happy to “sit idly by,” while thousands of freedom-loving Iranians were butchered at the hands of Khamenei and Ahmadinejad.
WHERE IS THE JUSTICE? WHERE IS THE CONSISTENCY?
UGHHHHHHHHHH! The fact that everyone has to go after Libya, but not lift a finger about Iran really ticks me off!
Its already been added to the Kearsarge wiki page that they are carrying 42 helicopters and 400 Marines off the Libyan coast for “humanitarian” reasons.
These are the same people who stood idly by while 1 million Rwandans were slaughtered.
But Libya has oil, that’s the difference.
No atrocity is unspeakable. All we have to do is convince the MSM that the Tea Party did it and....
There hasn't been one opportunity to make a mistake that Obama hasn't taken, and it is always at great cost to the American people.
Gee...I wish I had said that. However, what would we have done if Khadaffi Duck had nukes like the other tosser?
If Daffy had nukes they’d probably let him have a seat on the Security Council and treat him with deference
didn’t Libya get a human rights award last week or 2?
(Nodding head) You are right. Perfect answer.
Hillary, attrocities? You wait ‘til the brotherhood governments sweep into power across the Arab land. It’s coming and all brought to you by the socialist/marxist left.
A blood-thirsty, hate-filled, Arab/Muslim monster sneaks into the house of an Israeli family and murders the kids and parents in their beds -- nary a peep by the ugly, phony-American Obama Regime. Then Hamas decides to lob mortars into Israel targeting civilians and anything else they can hit. I haven't heard the illegal alien pResident condemning this act of war.
(To liberal/communist Democrats reading this: I despise Obama and his communist Democrat Party. But I'm sure you'd guessed that by now.)
Continuing: But it seems that when Qaddafi starts attacking people who are trying to overthrow him, well that's a humanitarian crises" that demands American military intervention because "civilians" are being killed. An Arab/Muslim civil war of obscure origin and goals is cause enough for America to commit treasure and resources to people we know nothing about; to people who hate the USA? It's my belief that Arabs will always be ruled by dictators and religious fanatics. They are a race of people who are full of blood lust, easily swayed and manipulated in the name of Islam or by misguided nationalism or by any insane, would-be tyrant like Qaddafi who plays to their passions. Sort of like today's Democrats I'd say. Nothing will change in Libya regardless of who ends up in charge there. It is a waste of money, material and time for America to intervene in Libya.
End of rant.
You mean they're bullying gays in Libya?
If we just let the muslims kill each other, they might mainly stay focused on their internal conflicts.
But being an outsider, attacking muslims, turns all muslims against us, as outsiders.
Being both pragmatic and selfish, I would prefer muslims focus on killing muslims.
I hope nobody expects muslims to credit us, for gifting them freedom, democracy, etc. Bush, Cheney and now Obama follow that line, apparently.
Maybe she should send them a boat load of “very special coolant”.
