Arab League criticizes allied airstrikes on Libya, AFTER asking UN and the West to impose a no fly zone.

A new fly zone doesn’t just mean making sure nothing flies, it also means taking out all air defenses so those imposing the no fly zone are at the smallest risk.

CAIRO (AP) — The head of the Arab League has criticized international strikes on Libya, saying they caused civilian deaths.

The Arab League’s support for a no-fly zone last week helped overcome reluctance in the West for action in Libya. The U.N. authorized not only a no-fly zone but also “all necessary measures” to protect civilians.

Amr Moussa says the military operations have gone beyond what the Arab League backed.

Moussa has told reporters Sunday that “what happened differs from the no-fly zone objectives.” He says “what we want is civilians’ protection not shelling more civilians.”

U.S. and European strikes overnight targeted mainly air defenses, the U.S. military said. Libya says 48 people were killed, including civilians.

Enforce a no fly zone and take out certain armored elements, do all of that without scratching the paint. OK Arab league, how about we pull out and YOU show us how it’s done.

They are doing this to please radicalized elements of the Arab street who were angered by their governments asking for help.
