WASHINGTON — A Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee sees a Libyan stalemate and wants NATO to bomb Moammar Gadhafi's inner circle and military headquarters.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham says those closest to Gadhafi "need to wake up every day wondering, 'Will this my last?'"

Graham tells CNN's "State of the Union" that the quickest way to end the stalemate is "to cut the head of the snake off."

The U.N. Security Council authorized military action to protect Libyan civilians and to impose a no-fly zone. But Graham tells CNN's "State of the Union" that "it's going to be hard" for the U.S. to achieve its national security interests if Gadhafi remains.

Two missiles apparently fired by NATO warplanes struck near Gadhafi's compound in Tripoli early Saturday.
