American, British and French Forces began protecting the Libyan people from Gadhafi forces today.  Over 20 French planes are enforcing a no fly zone while American Tomahawk missiles hit the shores of Tripoli as a warning to Gadhafi.

Tripoli, Libya (CNN) — The U.S. military has launched its first missiles in Libya against Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, a senior Defense Department official said Saturday.

Earlier, French fighter jets deployed over Libya fired at a military vehicle on Saturday, the country’s first strike against Moammar Gadhafi’s military forces who earlier attacked the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.

U.S. Tomahawk missiles have landed in the western area around Tripoli and Misrata, the American military official said.

“He’s clearly been on the offensive,” the official said of Gadhafi. “He said that he was going to do a cease-fire and he continued to move his forces into Benghazi.”
