Qaddafi is Dead… Now What?

It’s been about six months since the USA NATO decided to affect regime change in Libya, using drones and supplying rebels to oust long-time dictator Muammar Qaddafi.  Today, it’s been confirmed that Qaddafi is dead.

If you want to relish in the death of a brutal dictator feel free to peruse the Internet for the gory video and pictures — Qaddafi earned that feeling of joy many people feel about his death.

Now comes the murky part:  fighting and searching for the ousted dictator is easy to deal with since there is a clear objective that postpones moving forward.  With Qaddafi dead, however, we now have to deal with those other issues.  One of those issues, who is to replace the thug, has been a concern of mine since February.

While Qaddafi’s death is definitely a welcome milestone, this whole episode is not yet over:  Libya may be in turmoil once again as the dead-enders make their last stand;  the constitutional issues surrounding our participation in this civil war will most definitely haunt future Presidents and Congresses;  and who the heck knows who these people are we just allowed to seize Libya!

So you’d rather the world had just left him to butcher his own people?
