Default Headline of the Day: NATO Airstrikes

NATO Warplanes Bomb Tripoli

War has been waged in Libya for quite some time and I've been following the news about the matter quite closely. The controversial leader of the country, Muammar Gaddafi, has been kindly asked to step down and resign from his current position. He refused. So, the Western countries took the matters into their own hands, just like in Israel, the Gulf, Iraq, Aghanistan, and so forth.

Can someone explain what justifies killing innocent people when trying to kill a guilty man? I know the purpose is for the good but the means are definitely not. Oh, and the answer to my question is not oil.

If you've been following the Libyan crisis, throw in your opinion or two.
