    Regime change? how about ASASSINATION - call it what it was. Libya is in a slow motion civil war ; Qaddafi was vehemently anti-al-Qaida.
    The whole thing was a cluster, and Bengazi is the symptom of our madness
    Yeah, I almost did say murder. But you're right.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    how do you figure Syria is stabilizing?? Yes, this endless search for "Syrian moderates" has bought us ISIL (Islamic State)

    The fighting is starting to wind down so that means law and order is returning. It may not be the law and order we want it to be but its a lot better than if these Islamic fanatics would have won instead.

    Surge in Libya violence raises spectre of civil war | GlobalPost

    NATO warplanes helped topple dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011, sparking a power struggle between rival armed groups that has wracked the country ever since
    gives some ideas. the militias prop up the government -but the militias also rivsl the government.

    Kidnappings/murder of politicians, the closing of oil terminals in the east, ( now reopening) "dueling Prime Ministers" ..it just goes on and on

    1700 killed there this week. ISIL took control of large gas fields ( forget where) killing Syrian troops.
    Not winding down at all, just knocked off the coverage because of gaza. Crucifictions. etc.

    The "Islamic fanatics" are winning/stalemating Syria ,with the Assad regime ( which is holding on). and not the elusive Syrian moderates"

    and ISIS are who exactly?

    The main arguments made to the American people were:

    1. Preservation of the balance of power in the Persian Gulf (promotes stability)
    2. Assuring that no hostile regional power could hold hostage a significant portion of the world's oil supply (a longstanding vital U.S. interest)
    3. Opposing unprovoked international aggression

    IMO, all of those arguments, especially the first two, were stronger than the murky "responsibility to protect" doctrine that was cited for U.S.-led regime change in Libya in the absence of a credible post-regime change plan for addressing sectarian risks and promoting stable governance and the lack of compelling U.S. interests in Libya.
