Default Libya

Since we seem to be inching towards some sort of military intervention in Libya, I thought we should make a thread for it. This piece from Foreign Policy seems to sum up where we're at right now pretty well:

I thought Ross Douthat also had a great post on the subject, where he raised some interesting questions. His main point was that President Obama hasn't really had a conversation with the public about this. So if we go in, what are we trying to do? What happens if Qaddafi pushes back? What if what we try to do doesn't work? There seems to be imminent danger of "mission creep" here.
