Nonmilitary means can oust Gaddafi: John McCain
Washington: The US ambassador to the United Nations says there are plenty of "non-military means at our disposal" to oust Libya`s Moammar Gaddafi.
Reinforcing President Barack Obama`s justification for American intervention in the strife-torn North African nation, Susan Rice tells CBS`s "The Early Show" the principal goal is to protect civilians and establish a no-fly zone. She says while the administration believes Gaddafi must go, it doesn`t envision a regime-change strategy of the kind the Bush administration used to dump Iraq`s Saddam Hussein.
Appearing on the same show, Sen. John McCain said he doesn`t believe it`s possible "in the short term" to get rid of Gaddafi through non-military means such as economic and diplomatic pressure. McCain says "Gaddafi in power is unacceptable. We should use any means to bring him down."
