NATO Ramps Up Libyan Campaign

• http://slatest.slate.com/
 

NATO on Tuesday morning unleashed its heaviest attack yet on the Libyan capital of Tripoli, bombing at least 15 targets during a 30-minute airstrike that was concentrated near Muammar Qaddafi’s compound.

The offensive was seen as the latest indication that NATO is eager to avoid the stalemate that has begun to settle over the three-month-old conflict between Qaddafi and the rebels fighting for his ouster.

The strikes came as the U.S. invited Libya’s rebel leadership on Tuesday to open an office in Washington, D.C., and as NATO appears to be inching closer to adding ground-attack helicopters to its military campaign, the Wall Street Journal reports.
