Moments ago, the UN Security Council approved a no fly zone in Libya.  The vote passed 10-0 with 5 abstaining.  Those abstaining were China, Russia, Brazil, India and Germany.  Now who enforces it?  Theoretically the UN as a whole does, but we all know that the US will bear the majority of the responsibility.  To the question above, are we at war?  I think the answer is clearly yes, and Ron Paul makes the case as well, a no fly zone IS and act of war.  I made the case earlier HERE, that a no fly zone would lead to all out war and nation building.  I truely hope that I am wrong in my assessment, but fear that I am not.  And that my friends is how easy it is to end up in a war.
