(Reuters) - France believes there is enough support at the U.N. Security Council to pass a resolution on Libya on Thursday and military intervention could take place within hours of that, senior French diplomatic sources said.

Good to see its finally passed (vote 10-0 & 5 abstentions) the members abstaining were Russia, China, Brazil, India and Germany.

Lets hope this enables some humble pie to Mr Gadaffi and especially his smart mouth whinging son

I have a feeling there is going to be many more now dead because of western involvement. We don't even really know who the rebels are, who we are now siding with and providing military support. Some troll out there is saying, "We're providing humanitarian support!" Yeah?.. Well if that is true than we'd be providing military cover for the Ivory Coast right now but were not. Why? Because our leaders are deceptive con-artists pursuing their own private personal interests.

Ivory Coast does have a French army there.

The no fly zone was the rebels wanted and many other nations.

That's more or less true. I'm sure he'd be condemning the US if the resolution failed.

Anyway good on France for helping to push this through and I'm pleasantly surprised that Russia and China didn't veto it. Now the question is now effective it will be and how quickly can it be put into place. I've heard that France is ready to go and other NATO members and the Arab League have promised to provided fighters.

Well it looks like a major achievement made by this UN sanction as Libya has just announced an immediate ceasefire to all its military activity ..hope that humble pie is tasting nice Mr Gaddafi !!!! nevertheless hes a tricky customer and he made sure to use his military to do as much damage to the rebel freedom fighters before the sanction came through.. furthermore the ceasefire is just words right now & doesnt necessarily reflect whats happening on the ground

Hmmm... France is going to intervene ?

Why not Egypt ? It's a neighbour of Libya, and the 'rebel' areas are close to its border. It has a large and modern air force (certainly by African standards), including F16 fighters.

meow purr :)

that's an empty gesture to buy time and protect his forces.

I agree, there is reports of heavy fighting after the ceasefire, isn't that what Hitler done? He said he will stop and then he continued.

Well Egypt and Libya did have a very short war in the 70s so there might be tension there if they got involved, though rumour is they've sent advisors to help train the rebels. Plus the Egyptian military is likely too focused on getting their own country in order to take the lead on the no fly zone.

French people are wusses, so their government might want something they couldn't enforce if their lives depended on it. Not to mention Juppe whose interests are perhaps not the best for the French, he has his hands so deep in other people's pocket

I still wonder how this man who should be in prison for life is still free.

seeming Gaddafi's broken the UN sanction the very first strike in Libya should be to liquefy Gaddafi instantly

...which will be a pleasure after hearing 40 years of BS from his camel mouth
