We put our toe in the water

The truth is, we don't know who the opposition is. At least we didn't do it unilaterally, but do you think anyone believes France is leading the crusade?

If it goes like with the liberation of Kuwait from Hussein, back to status quo, let it.
We cannot force the world to be just, and if we kill off one unjust ruler, there's no guarantee the following one will be better. Let's just agree not to support the despots either.

I think the US has learned after Iraq

by AV . In reply to Let's all learn from past ...

Never go into a country unilaterally without the blessing of the UN. We can only hope it will be like Operation Desert Storm that liberated Kuwait. The thing that bothers me is the mission in Libya seems very open-ended. Obama says we will not take a leadership role and we will be out in days, not weeks, but I'm afraid if things don't go well, we could get drawn into the conflict.

Like you say, even if Khaddafi is ousted or killed, you don't know who will fill the power vacuum.

The US will always try to work with whoever is in charge, despot or not. Maybe its the philosophy of Sun-Tzu "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer".
