Don't think there's a thread on this topic specifically. Should the US be involved in Libya? What should our objectives be?
America doesn't need to commit its military to another conflict. We don't need to put our soldiers at risk (apparently we're not... yet), we don't need to spill our own treasure (we have). There's no strategic value in the Libya conflict aside from wanting the Arab-spring to keep chugging along, and there's no exit strategy aside from the ousting of Gaddhafi... and the nation-building after that... and the residual responsibility that comes with trying to set-up a democracy in the ME (re: repeated and costly near-failures).
A lot of you guys get labeled Neo-Cons. Do YOU think this is a good idea?
