Saw your meep meep.  In the context of the swirling and rapid change in the region, consider this.

If the Libya intervention works as intended, this is it. "It" being the end of the neocon-Bush doctrine. This is the moment the Al Qaeda "narrative" is first dealt its death blow. This is the moment America turns the page on 10 years of insanity. This is the moment of "change" we all voted for, with dividends for years and decades to come.

I think that's why Obama took the considerable risk, knowing the blowback would be breathlessly apocalyptic, knowing he had little time, and knowing the opportunity would not present itself again.

Meepity meep fucking meep.
