The U.S. military attacked Libyan ground forces and air defenses Saturday and Sunday.
As of Sunday night, the U.S. and British military had fired a total of 124 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Libya’s air defense sites, according to CNN.
The U.N. Security Council passed a resolution Thursday calling for a no-fly zone and demanding a cease-fire. It authorized a coalition of 22 countries including the U.S. to take all necessary measures to protect Libyan civilians from attacks by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
In response to the strikes, Gadhafi promised a war.
Gadhafi’s compound was bombed Sunday, and his whereabouts are currently unknown.
The Libyan government claims 48 people have been killed in allied attacks, but American and French government officials said they have had no indication of any civilian casualties.
Arab League chief Amr Moussa criticized missile strikes, saying that was not what the Arab League wanted in supporting a no-fly zone.
U.S. officials said they are planning to hand over operational control of the military mission soon.
Do you think the U.S. should have attacked Libyan forces? Why or why not?
