Libyan Liberation

It looks like I was wrong when I wrote that NATO's intervention in the Libyan Civil War was too little too late. I'm man enough to admit my mistake and congratulate President Obama, NATO allies, and the rebels for their success.
Of course, anti-American neo-cons like Andrew McCarthy are whining about what a disaster is the fall of their good friend Muammar Qaddafi.

I didn't comment on the Andrew McCarthy page.
But it was difficult.

The reasoning he uses could be used to oppose every revolution in history - and actually, most democratic elections, too:
"Sorry, the United States wants your people to be free and all, but the current dictator is more predictable to us than anything else y'all might come up with."

I hope all the changes in North Africa end up being for the best for the citizens who have brought them about...
