    Protected and enforced by Libyan police and Libyan military forces - not foreign occupiers.

    I think back to the terrible sectarian warfare in Iraq during and after their first election, and wonder what could have been if there had been no foreign occupation for the anti-government forces to use to rally support to their cause.  If there had been no American force drawing foreign jihadists into the country, looking to set off a civil war just to screw with us.

    Whatever problems the Libyans might have making this work, they're starting out from a much better place than the Iraqis.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
