What is the Libya debate really about?
Advertisements [?]
Is it about when and where the US intervenes militarily? Is it about where the intervention ends, and what we expect to gain from intervening? Is it about the opposition, who the leaders are, and what is likely to happen if Qaddafi is ousted? Is it about the rights of sovereign nations? Is it about the particular qualities of Libya, in terms of resources or otherwise? Is it about selective US action on UN resolutions?

Rather than just yell at people, calling them war mongers or pseudo-murderous bystanders, why not explain your views fully, in relation to some of these issues? Which do you think are crucial, what are the nuances to your view--how is it not absolute?
