Why are we bombing Libya?
What is the USA up to?
"Operation Odyssey Dawn" began on March 19, 2011. It is the code name for the U.S. military involvement in Libya. Libya is basically having a civil war. Many of the people in Libya don't want to be ruled by Gaddafi anylonger. So they started protesting, but it has not turned out into an easy revolution.
Gaddafi has threatened to "cleanse" the people. He seems willing to kill many people to stay in charge. The United Nations voted to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya. Shortly after the vote, U.S. President Obama said that the U.S. military would participate in military action with the goal being "the protection of civilians in Libya." Hours later, the U.S. military attacked Libya with Tomahawk cruise missiles and air strikes.

Some Military Personnel Already on the Ground in Libya
I heard Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer speak on Fox news today. He says that there are actually some military personnel already on the ground in Libya, although they are probably not in uniform. Their job is to determine the missiles' targets. The missiles are laser guided, and a specific target location has to be given. Satellite imagery alone doesn't give the complete intelligence information.
