    Obama declares national state of emergency over Libya

    "The steps we take in the near future are not the only steps we are prepared to take, if further steps are necessary," Carney said. ..."Overreaction or a Seizure of Opportunity ?"

    President Obama issued an executive order Friday evening that imposes immediate sanctions on Libyan ruler Muammar al Qaddafi, his sons and his accomplices in the slaughter of civilians. In a letter accompanying the order, Obama declared a national emergency over the situation.

    "I have determined that the actions of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi, his government, and close associates, including extreme measures against the people of Libya, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. The order declares a national emergency to deal with this threat," Obama wrote in the letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).

    The executive order itself condemns the "wanton violence against unarmed associates" perpetrated by Qaddafi, his sons, his government, and his close associates. Effective immediately, all U.S.-based assets of Qaddafi and his four sons are to be frozen and transactions intended to move those assets are prohibited. The order allows the measures to be expanded to include any member of the Libyan government who are determined to be complicit in Qaddafi's brutality.

    Earlier Friday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that more punitive measures against the Qaddafi regime were on the way.

    Fixed it for you Rock. Don't need to be confused anymore.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I think this would almost be respectable... if he didn't wait a week after Qaddafi had his men light up that funeral and kill 200 people.
