Obama on Libya: Terms are Not Negotiable, Will be Met with Military Action

The President is speaking right now about the situation in Libya. During the speech he said that the United States will not send soldiers into Libya. He was more stringent about the UN Security Council resolution:

"Let me be clear, these terms are not open for negotiation." he said about the resolution aimed at protecting civilians. If Qaddafi resumes attacks, the international community will step in and remove him.

Obama seemed to contradict himself, seemingly allowing Qaddafi to stay in power as long as he does not continue to use force. Furthermore, he stated that the United States would not 'effect change' in the Middle East.
