From the NYT:

NATO Attack Destroys Much of Qaddafi Compound

By JOHN F. BURNS

TRIPOLI, Libya - In a sudden, sharp escalation of NATO`s air campaign over Libya, warplanes dropped more than 60 bombs on targets in Tripoli on Tuesday, obliterating large areas of Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi`s Bab al-Aziziya command compound.

Obama`s basic foreign affairs philosophy appears to be that it`s stupid to invade some third world country when you can score just as many political points by shooting or exploding one guy (along with various bystanders, of course).
