Days Not Weeks Turns To Months Not Years?
A whole lot of nothing, says David Rieff in The New Republic. Not much has changed in the past four months. “The outcome Obama wants and the means he is willing to use to secure it are hopelessly mismatched.” A lack of weapons and poor coordination with NATO have slowed rebel advances toward Tripoli. The US promised to hand over the $34 billion in assets to the rebel leadership but, because of various restrictions and bureaucratic hurdles, they won’t get anything soon.With the beginning of Ramadan next week, the War for Libya is about to slow to a crawl.

Prepare for headlines a year from now that sound a lot like they do today: “Libyan rebels continue towards Tripoli.”
