Understand No Fly Zone Territory? UN approved resolution authorizing a no-fly zone over Libya

Understand No Fly Zone Territory?
Meaning of No Fly zone Territory-
UN approved resolution authorizing a no-fly zone over Libya

A no fly zone or no flight zone is a territory over which aircrafts are not allowed to fly.
The purpose of the no fly zone is to prevent possible bombing and chemical attacks against the citizens of that particular area.

No Fly zone is a territory, an airspace in which aircraft, especially military aircraft, are forbidden to fly

The United Nations Security Council approved a resolution Thursday evening authorizing a no-fly zone over Libya and other military action against Libya.

French Prime Minister Francois Fillon told France-2 Television that France would support military action against Qaddafi within hours of the vote.

Regarding this Resolution also President Obama took time to take decision.
This puts a question mark does President Obama is capable of becoming Global Leader of democratic nations?

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters in Tunisia on Thursday that a U.N. no-fly zone over Libya would require action to protect the planes and pilots, "including bombing targets like the Libyan defense systems," but no ground intervention is considered.

The U.N. vote on Thursday night was 10-0 with five countries abstaining including Russia and China. India, Germany and Brazil

U.S Ambassador Susan Rice said the resolution "should send a strong message to Colonel Qaddafi and his regime that the violence must stop, the killing must stop, and the people of Libya must be protected and have the opportunity to express themselves freely."

The vote came five days after the Arab League called on the United Nations to "shoulder its responsibility" by imposing a flight ban over Libya.

What will be effect of No Fly zone resolution by UN?
Resolution declared
A ban on all flights in the airspace of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya in order to help protect civilians
Now if Qaddafi or his arm forces try to kill civilians using fighter planes, aircrafts then UN member countries can legally start the war with Qaddafi.
Can use missiles to destroy the aircrafts of Qaddafi and his arm forces.

When government of one nation starts to kill the citizens of that same nation it proves that the Government has totally failed and is trying to get the control of nation by using military forces.

In Such situations Democratic nations should come together and establish democracy in that nation and remove corrupt government which uses arm forces to kill innocent civilians.

If the government is good no citizen will say that Get Out.
When Government is corrupt people keep suffering generations after generations
Then one generation wakes up to fight against that corrupt government until death, until the freedom.
Like Tunisia, Egypt

I wonder how they enforce these no-fly zones.... Will they shoot a plane that flies over this territory? But before they decide to, the plane might have already crossed!
