President Obama finally spoke out forcefully about the situation in Libya, on the seventh day of violent protests against the dictatorship of Moammar Gaddafi. Gaddafi has rejected demands that he relinquish power. He continues his violent crackdown on the mass protests.
The president said that “we strongly condemn the use of violence in Libya.” He said “the violence must stop.” He has “asked his administration to prepare the full range of options.” He reminded Libya that “the whole world is watching.” He has asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to go have some meetings in Europe.
Some pilots in the Libyan Air Force flew their planes out over the desert, and parachuted out, allowing the aircraft to crash in the desert.
