What Happens After Qaddafi?

Recent military developments in Libya underscore that U.S. and NATO officials need to consider what strategy they intend to pursue if Muammar Qaddafi’s more than four-decade hold on power finally comes to an end. Given the financial woes of Italy, France and other key European members of NATO, and given the habitual desire of the Europeans to off-load security problems onto the United States, it is all too likely that we will see a concerted campaign to get Washington’s participation in a post-Qaddafi peacekeeping mission. Argues Cato scholar Ted Galen Carpenter, “President Obama should resist any temptation to involve the United States further in Libya’s domestic quarrels.”

Calabria, “President Obama appears to be considering just putting the same failed system in place. Of course, we’ll be promised that it will all work better this time.”
