      The U.S. (under Operation Odyssey Dawn), France , Canada , United Kingdom and 7 more countries have already sent fighter jets and aircrafts to combat Libyan air defenses
    • Map of Libya & Targeted Areas
    • Opposition against Libyan intervention
      • Anti-war protesters demonstrating outside the White House, both to mark the 8th anniversary of the Iraq War and to plead against war in Libya.
    • Who cares?
      • Libya does: Violent conflicts may result, but Gaddafi might be overthrown!
    • Who cares?
      • The world does: A dozen+ countries may be pulled into a long, violent conflict
    • Who cares?
      • We do: Similar to WWI and WWII, several countries are forming an alliance to defeat by force
