A strawman, because the use

A strawman, because the use of helicopters, which is difficult to impossible to prevent, wouldn’t improve the demonstrators’ situation, but wouldn't have the call for a no fly zone. I suspect the use of the airforce against the demonstrators was very much blown out of proportion, because the plans for the intervention were already there. 

I expect that this intervention will develop into a full occupation. Most likely the country will be split. It will be the source of conflict too. The protesters who started the thing have already been replaced by tribal leaders and former ministers who have changed sides. The interior minister who is responsible for the affair of the Bulgarian nurses is on the side you support, too …

And I am thinking of the precedent: all peoples of the world must reckon with a foreign intervention in any internal conflict from now on. This is very scary.
