    That isn't true, and in fact they made numerous pleas in the UN, in the media, and in closed door meetings. The number and stature of those who opposed intervention was incredibly small. It is also a fact to state that assistance was accepted eagerly by almost all involved in the fighting.

    If they go the secular route maybe something good will come of it. Time will tell. I'm not gonna hold my breath. We need to give it 10 years or so to really see. It may turn out to be a good thing or it may not.

    Actually it is if you do some research.. They made numerous statements and pleas for no intervention by foreign countries.

    I never claimed it was

    I have done research, and after the Gaddafi offensive began calls for intervention were never in the minority among the leadership of the opposition.
