The United States and NATO are stepping up military operations against Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, hoping to push him out of power to drive him from power -- or Reuters says a senior U.S. official is hoping they can kill him. The comments came after some of the heaviest bombing in Tripoli since the campaign to oust Gadhafi began. According to the Reuters report, the official said, "no one would shed a tear" if Gaddafi were to die in one of the many attacks."
