No time to party, the question now is, are the forces loyal to Gaddafi going to accept defeat and pledge allegiance to the Libyan people?

I'm still a little uneasy about this.

After an armed popular uprising, NATO decided to help depose a sovereign government.

Would people still feel the same way if this were to happen in the US? Say the Occupy protests turned in to armed freedom fighters taking over cities? I don't think it could, as any armed uprising would be brutally put down before outside influences could act or the movement spread. In this light, Ghaddafi's only mistake was not killing every treasonous person immediately.

Also, remind me how this is different than what we did in Iraq. People seem to be really upset about that and not this for some reason.

Hey that's fantastic news...

Now, let's go shoot AK47s, handguns, and AA guns straight up in the air for an hour to celebrate!

The difference is: Bush isn't in office now, so it's ok!

You have a point.
However, NATO and the UN turned a blind eye to his ways for decades although he was a member. I still do not understand the reasoning behind this. I'm not a geo-political chess player.

Nonetheless if they choose not to pick a side, they risked losing the entire region post revolution as the writing was clearly on the wall that Ghaddafi's time was up.

As a matter of fact I can only think of 2 of these Middle East uprisings that have not been successful ... yet. Bahrain and Yemen.

I'm also a bit concerned for what is going to replace Ghaddafi's government. After we invaded Iraq, he became friendly to US interests and was a sane, deterable leader. In short, he behaved within the region, helping to stabilize it.

My prediction: Sharia law takes over and brutal rule reaches levels people never could have imagined under Ghaddafi. It becomes a safe-haven for Islamic fundamentalists and anti-US sentiment. We win?

If there's anything we should have learned from Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, it's that you can't half-ass these things. If you're going to return a country to the stone age, you have to be very careful in guiding its return to the modern world.

*edit* Just thought I'd add that I think we did things correctly in Japan and Germany following WWII.
