Look, Joe Lieberman knows what we did wrong in Iraq: We didn’t invade soon enough!
Mr. Lieberman and others argue that the risks of waiting may be far greater than the risk of an early, decisive military intervention. He acknowledged that as in Iraq, the United States might unleash an uncertain future of tribal rivalry and chaos, in a country that has no institutions prepared to fill the vacuum if Colonel Qaddafi is driven from power.
Yet, he argued: “It’s hard to imagine any new government growing out of this opposition that is worse than Qaddafi.”
We got this, Libyans. Just let us come in, bomb you, and take over your country. It’ll be almost like you did it yourselves! [NYT]
