As Atrios does, I agree with Ross: Iraq Then, Libya Now.

I would also like to add: just because a guy is an awful, miserable dictator and really disliked by our country and our allies (Gaddifi is all of those) doesn’t mean that it’s a good idea for us to throw our country’s resources behind an armed uprising against his government. That includes no fly zones, Navy ships off the shore of Libya, and arms shipments to rebel leaders and troops on the ground.
