On Friday, March 18th, 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that developments in Libya leave the US and the UN "no choice" but to help ensure a no-fly zone. As for the recently announced ceasefire, Clinton added that "we will not be responsive or impressed by words, we need to see actions on the ground." Earlier in the day, in front of his parliament, British PM David Cameron outlined the specific logistical steps his country is taking to position forces around Libya in order to enforce the UN resolution.
