The article clearly referenced internal aspects of government and the banking system, which is what I referred to. An exogenous attack does not directly deal with that.
But for you, let me be more clear. I referred to what Libya, or the other Arab spring countries do internally, governmentally, religiously, IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY. So if Libya wants Sharia Law, multiple wives, an Iranianesque theocracy, it is none of our direct business. Picking winners and losers in middle eastern affairs has not turned out so well for us, or perhaps you think Hamid Karzai, who would side with Pakistan against the US, and whom the US put in power, is a good example.
Middle eastern tribal, and religious power disputes in geographically defined boundaries, defined from the dissolution of the ottoman empire Will ALWAYS be disputed, contested, and violent. Not something you want to get in the middle of, or you will have more planes crashing down.
I believe we should keep a watchful eye, but nothing rash as much of our previous dealings have been.
