Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is likely to leave power if an international military drive applies a full range of military pressure on him, a top US and NATO commander said on Tuesday.

"If we work all the elements of power, we have a more than reasonable chance of Gaddafi leaving, because the entire international community is arrayed against him," Admiral James Stavridis, who is NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, and also the commander of US European Command, said during testimony at the US Senate.
