Too much prevarication and posturing.
Too little firm policy statements and goals.
Too late to make a decisive difference.

Libya’s defense ministry warned Thursday
that any military action against the African nation resulting from a
possible U.N. Security Council resolution authorizing airstrikes and
other measures will be met with retaliatory strikes on air and sea
traffic in the Mediterranean region.
Reuters reported that a statement by the
regime of Muammar al-Qaddafi broadcast on Libyan television warned that
“the Mediterranean basin will face danger not just in the short-term,
but also in the long term.”
The Obama administration is pushing for a Thursday vote for a U.N. Security Council resolution authorizing airstrikes and other measures against Qaddafi’s regime.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said
Thursday that a U.N. no-fly zone over Libya “requires certain actions
taken to protect the planes and the pilots, including bombing targets
like the Libyan defense systems.”
Was this the change folks were looking for?
UPDATE: UN Approves “No Fly Zone” and strikes to ensure aerial dominance.
