Western Powers Continue To Mull Libyan Options

Western leaders continued to consider their options  as pro-government forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi made gains against rebel groups. U.S. President Barack Obama and various European lawmakers escalated their demand that Gaddafi step down. However,  all stopped short of calling for a no-fly zone, considered by some the best way of hampering Gaddafi’s military effectiveness vs. the rebels. It appears that to ensure Gaddafi’s removal, more than harsh rhetoric will be required; U.S. intelligence chief James Clapper predicted a government victory over the rebels. Indeed, government forces re-took the once-rebel held city of Zawiyah, located just 30 miles west of the capital, Tripol.
