Yesterday, Britain joined France in announcing that Qaddafi can stay in the country if he relinquishes power. (The rebel forces, on the other hand, rescinded that offer this morning.) It’s a wretched idea, and it casts a cruel light on the strategic miscalculations behind the Days Not Weeks War. To persist on this road will mean that NATO has failed in Libya.Leave the Great Loon, his son the Dear Loon and his apparatchiks in Libya and the struggle for power will continue. See Zimbabwe: Robert Mugabe has no interest in sharing power, despite signing a western backed coalition agreement with his rival Morgan Tsvangirai in late 2008. We can all be sure the Great Loon has no serious interest in giving up power to the rebel “rats” — and he has no plans to play by the rules.This venture was a typically botched Wilsonian war from the start but to launch a gratuitous war and then lose it is about as pure a show of fecklessness as can be imagined. President Obama needs to finish the job. Fast.
