As for the usual fears regarding direct military action - yes, there are risks. There are ALWAYS risks. But this time the popular will would be behind a limited intervention, not against it, and that would make all the difference. As for handing regional dominance to Iran - please; the Iranian regime is itself fragile. Who knows if the fall of Gaddafi might bring about a renewed revolutionary spirit in Tehran, too?
And in the meantime - can you just imagine the faces on the fucking Tea Partiers and birthers - not to mention that idiot Glenn Beck and the disgusting Rush Limbaugh - if their arch-enemy brought down Muammar Gaddafi? When Barack HUSSEIN Obama was behind the destruction of one of America's longest-standing enemies, the nutjob who outwitted Reagan and both Bushes? I confess that would be a sweet, sweet day - almost as sweet as the fall of the Libyan madman would be to his own oppressed people.
