WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. John McCain says the fighting in Libya might be over by now if the U.S. had used greater force against Moammar Gadhafi.

McCain is one of the strongest proponents in Congress of military intervention in Libya. He told "Fox News Sunday" that NATO is stepping up attacks but that he's still not satisfied.

In McCain's words, "This thing could have been over a long time ago if we had brought the full weight of American air power to bear on him."

NATO warplanes pounded Gadhafi's compound in Tripoli on Saturday.
