As fierce fighting intensifies between government soldiers of Muammar Gaddafi and Libyan rebel forces there’s been a growing momentum for some kind of international military intervention.

Forces loyal to Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi have launched further air strikes on the rebel-held oil port of Ras Lanuf, in a renewed offensive.

The rebels are determined to eliminate the capacity of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. Libyan soldiers already joined the rebellious forces, and the first images show us that the Libyan rebel forces use captured armoured vehicles and heavy armament. Link to Military Power of Libyan armed forces.

The Secretary General of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, Ekemeleddin Ihsanoglu, has added his backing to the idea of imposing a no-fly-zone over Libya. The Arab Gulf states have already called on the United Nations' Security Council to protect the civilian population in Libya, and Britain and France have been working on a draft UN resolution authorising a no-fly-zone.

According to local information, Libyan President would have proposed to the rebels a meeting to negotiate his departure, those would have refused. In the current situation, and with the actions which could be taken against Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, it would be suicidal to leave him the least chance. One can imagine the actions of reprisals which Colonel Muammar Gaddafi could implement from any part of the world.
