What the hell is wrong with you people? 'Soberly assess' the threat from Gaddafi? This is a dictator who in response to opposition had the entire population of a prison killed; who has staged mass public executions; who has put snipers on the tops of buildings to randomly shoot demonstrators; who has rounded up many of the families of people fighting on his side and threatened to kill them if they defect - etc etc etc.

We could sit around being terribly unsure if he's *really* going to massacre people in Benghazi, and on that basis - on the basis he might not really massacre people! - join demonstrations opposing military intervention... It beggars belief.

Of course Western intervention could end up going horribly wrong. If you want to say that if that turns out, because I was against demonstrating against it, it's my fault - go ahead. I'll cross that bridge.
