Well it appears that Khadaffi is dead: all those people murdered by his government and the terrorists he trained, armed, and sheltered have been avenged. The problem is: now what? Who are the rebels and what do they want? Most of them appear to be hardline Muslim radicals, is that better than Khadaffi's regime?

Consider the difference here: Iraq we went in and took control to rebuild carefully. Libya the president sent in bombers to help the locals revolt. Iraq is stable and building a more western and friendly government. Libya? Who knows, but it doesn't look good.

Yet while Iraq cost hundreds of millions and thousands of American lives, it was paid up front. Libya, who knows what the cost will be in the future?
