What do you think about France taking the Leadership Role on Libya?

France became the first country to formally recognize the rebels’ newly created Interim Governing Council, saying it planned to exchange ambassadors after President Nicolas Sarkozy met with two representatives of the group based in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.

The international Red Cross said dozens of civilians have been wounded or killed in recent days in grueling battles between Gadhafi’s army and the opposition movement trying to oust him.

The fighting intensified on the main front line between the Mediterranean oil port of Ras Lanouf and the city of Bin Jawwad, where the rebels appeared to be have established better supply lines bringing heavy weapons like multiple-rocket launcher trucks and small tanks to the battle.

  • As long as it isn't us (the U.S.), I'm good with it. This is a civil war. Not an international war. And who are we to think we know what is best for Libya?

  • I think someone has to and Obama is not leadership material. So thankfully he is sitting it out. It is sad we have such a pansy in office.

  • If this is the case, good for France . From what I heard on CNN about 3 hours ago, France and Britain favour a tougher line on Libya , the US and Germany a milder one . Europe is more directly affected by what is going on in Libya than the US. Italy is already having to deal with so many boatloads of refugees arriving from North Africa it has asked for help from the European Union.

    France is a very nice country , Jesse . I lived and worked there for awhile. .But they did not invent French Fries,
