Spain has voted to join the coalition intervening in Libya.

Prime Minister José Luis Zapatero said , "We are in Libya to defend citizens from attacks by Libyan forces." The motion was passed virtually unanimously with three votes against and one abstention. Prime Minister Zapatero said that the mission has a UN mandate and "the responsibility is to protect: If a state does not do its duty to protect, we must intervene."

Egypt is assisting on the east as well. Even with the rise in hand wringing and purse clutching from certain corners of the world, Gaddafi's immediate neighbors seem determined.
