While the international community considers how to intervene in Libya, violence continues to escalate in the country. Takeaway listeners had a lot to say about how the U.S. should respond. John Paul from Detroit Michigan says, "Despite the cost of the string on the military I would do the no-fly zone ASAP in Libya. I just hope it helps and doesn't hurt our reputation. Of course it'd be a lot easier if we were not already in Iraq and Afghanistan."
Much of the heavy fighting has been taking place in the the oil rich-city of Ras Lanuf, where the BBC's John Simpson has the latest.
