NATO Targets Gadhafi

Witnesses say that recent airstrikes have been delibrately targeting Muammar Gadhafi's compound.  Libyan officials say that as a result of breaking glass, four children have been injured after the latest NATO strikes overnight.  This is all occurring during what appears to be a stalemate between Gadhafi's forces and the rebels attempting to oust him from power, in a struggle that has so far lasted two months.  Western countries, the US included, are still uncertain whether to quietly support the rebels with weaponry in order to turn the tide of the conflict.


Elsewhere, the Mississippi River is beginning to crest at Memphis, TN, prompting President Obama to sign a disaster declaration for the area on Monday.  Flooding is of grave concern to residents in Louisiana, the crest's next target, as the area is still getting back on it's feet after the disaster that was Hurricane Katrina.
