    Very serious task…should have been part of initial Grand Strategy. Now after party reveals potential for more chaos in country. George Jonas has interesting related article in National Post (nationalpost.com).

    Our strategy has been to use the superior American culture planted in Iraq, as leverage to change the frozen and stagnate Islamic cultures, which the Arab Spring has shown is working. So before we start nation building in Libya, we have to ask if we are building an American culture in Libya, or are we just replacing one Tyrant for another. A Shariah based constitution is not what we want, and we should just let it fail.
