U.S. to send predator drones to Libya

Predator Drone

The Pentagon announced yesterday that the U.S. will begin deploying armed Predator drones against Muammar al-Qaddafi’s forces in order to break the stalemate in Libya.

Rebels have welcomed the news saying the weapons will help protect civilians.  The predators can remain in the sky virtually non-stop, firing missiles unseen, and with no crewmembers at risk.  This is great importance especially since the U.S. has ruled out sending in ground forces to the conflict and allowed NATO to take over command and implementation of defending-enforcing the no-fly-zone.
