Yes, I know the story. That’s

Yes, I know the story. That’s why I don’t see a parallel. I am sure that western countries have given support to the armed uprising in Libya, but I believe in the beginning they were surprised by the impetus of the initial protests. Very much different from the uprising in Iraq which wouldn’t have happened if the US hadn’t egged them on by the (broken) promise of support.

It's the last Iraq war I'm reminded of. And the expectations that the Iraqis would greet the invaders with roses.
