As the fight rages on between rebels and Moammar Gadhafi’s regime, NATO and allies are discussing possible plans for implementing a no-fly-zone in Libya.

Libya No Fly Zone

The US Navy will likely play a very minimal role in any potential Libya no-fly-zone.

While details are still being discussed and nothing has been agreed, and a no-fly-zone is not immediately imminent according to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, it is clear that there will be a minimal role for the US Navy in effecting any potential Libya no-fly-zone.

According to the Navy Times, the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise is in the Red Sea, which is just a day’s sail away from the Mediterranean, will not be repositioned as part of a possible no-fly-zone according to top Navy officials.
