Picture of the Day: Burning 'The Green Book'

More

Burning the Green Book - Asmaa Waguih Reuters - full.jpgLibya has erupted into civil war, with Muammar Qaddafi vowing to fight on to the bitter end, and debate is now growing over whether the U.S. should come to the aid of those fighting to oust him. National Journal, meanwhile, reports that the Pentagon is urging caution and is no rush for the U.S. military to get involved, while the Senate passed a resolution Tuesday calling for a no-fly zone over the country.
