8. NATO leaving? Are we leaving Iraq? Or Afghanistan?
Judging from past experience, I'm willing to bet backroom deals are being made to establish a quasi-permanent, then a permanent military presence on Libyan soil. Contracts will be inked to operate those oil fields and privatize Libyan infrastructure. More contracts will be inked to train Libya's new national army, to sell western ammunition and weapon systems to Libya, and to provide training and "expertise" to the new Libyan government on "counter-intelligence." Perhaps one day, when they become good enough, we can outsource the water-boarding and other "enhanced interrogation" sessions of terror suspects to Libya, like we did with Egypt under Mubarak.
