Rebels in Libya may finally be achieving the objective. Trouble is that the U.S. will take credit, though the news reports suggest very strongly that this is an indigenous push inside the capitol. The U.S. intervention might have actually prolonged the dictatorship. Someone needs to make the detailed argument before the wrong message is learned from this event.
Addendum: having now read all existing news reports, it strikes me that the situation is too muddy to say precisely whether the final push primarily represents a popular uprising, a coup, or an invasion/overthrow. In some ways, this is the worst aspect of intervention. It muddies the politics to the point that no one knows for sure what is true anymore. As usual, Margolis presents a balanced view.
