I am not an apologist for Qaddafi, but I think we have no choice but to go forward with this, for the greater good.
If the US is to stick to its doctrine on terrorism, adopted after 9/11, terrorism should not be rewarded. The great good demands that we do not give levy to terrorists and their supporters. Only by sticking to our principles will we be able to defeat terrorism, its harborers around the world, and militant Islam.

Apparently you see no advantage in using Qaddafi as an example of the benefit that would come from cooperating with the US.
This gives us excellent leverage in dealing with other rogue nations.
We cannot forcibly remove each and every dictator. We would have allowed Saddam to leave. We are working on diplomatic efforts with North Korea. The list goes on...Syria, Lebanon, Iran.
Just what is it that you think we should do with Libya and how that is better than what is happening?
I'm sorry yonif, but I think you may be thinking emotionally and not realistically about this one.
