The Foreign Policy Initiative makes the case for intervention in Libya:
President Obama‘s decision to intervene in Libya in an effort to protect the Libyan people from the dictatorial regime of Muammar al-Qaddafi has been criticized by many on the left and the right. Valid questions have been raised about the scope and duration of U.S. involvement and members of Congress have highlighted the need for adequate consultation of Congress. Unfortunately, some of the opposition to intervention in Libya has been based upon mistaken assumptions about the U.S. role, the mission, and what is at stake.
Whole thing here.
