Can someone explain to me what as "Grand Strategy" was in Libya? To me, we just smashed windows in and let the riot happen. It seems rather
pointless to overthrow a Govt, but have no alternative ready to assume Governmental responsibilites and support. Shouldn't that have been step one
of overthrowing Gaddafi in Libya? We turned Libya into a Somali failed State.
It seems rather pointless as you said, but the point was to stop Gadaffi from selling his oil in Gold and creating an African gold standard.
We could care less what happened after as long as that didn't happen. If it had been a legit organic revolution than the people probably would have
started a new government and kept strangers out, but alot of them were insurgents that have no interest in preserving the country.
That makes more sense than anything we have been told. It's not like all of a sudden Qaddafi became a "bad guy" once again. Relatively speaking ,
he was a non player in the world scene. It always comes do to Money (Gold) and Resources (Oil). If you don't have either of those, your country is
relatively safe from invasion. Funny how that works out isn't it???????
