What Now? Who Knows?

I have a sinking feeling that what we’re seeing right now over the skies of Libya is too little, too late, but what do I know? Libya has surprised me three times in the last month. First I was amazed that an uprising was even possible in so oppressive a country. And just when it looked like Qaddafi was about to be fed to the dogs, he staged a remarkable comeback. I’m just as surprised that the UN authorized a Chapter VII resolution against him.

So don’t ask me what comes next or how this will end. I haven’t a clue, and neither does anyone else.
