Like I said... Gadaffi was a SOB. But, he was not an immediate threat to the Libyan people until they rebelled. There are nasty, inept, corrupt leaders all over the world. But, we leave most of them alone. We chose to act in Libya. We encouraged the rebellion, which likely... arguably caused more loss of life and destruction than would Gadaffi putting down the rebellion have.
But, I'm not asking about or arguing that. I'm asking specifically... if we had a R2P before, what now is our responsibility to Libya?

Where is the international community lending a hand?
