Allied coalition leaders made clear after meeting today that the war will not end until Muammar Qaddafi is dethroned, according to a report on the meeting by the New York Times.
What was ostensibly an operation to protect the Libyan people appears now to have become a campaign to defeat Qaddafi.
None of this made any sensen anyway. How can you protect the Libyan people with Qaddafi still in charge?
As I’ve written, there is no way that we can get in a war with another country and not destroy its leadership. Otherwise, that leadership will come back to bite us real hard, particularly Qaddafi.
Going to war against Qaddafi and not removing him is or should be an impeachable offense, because it’s a de facto failure to protect our country from harm.
