Libya: Be Careful What You Ask For

A leaked version of a report to be made by the UN Secretary General to the Security Council outlines systematic rape, torture and illegal detentions by the recently victorious (with the aid of the West) Libyan rebel forces.  The Arab Spring is in bloom, and its bounty may prove bloody.  We must continue to follow the law--that is, the Law of Unintended Consequences--as we consider what is going on in the Arab/Persian world.  All revolutions are not honorable and worthy, sometimes worse governments take over, and our interests must be at stake when we act.

The war crimes started with what was surely the cold-blooded murder of Ghadafi.

Yes that was excessive. Imagine murdering a sweetheart of a guy like Kadaffi.
They should have let him live out his Golden Years in Ft. Lauderdale.
