    Any intervention would need to be by air (and perhaps sea), probably from Turkey.  Cyprus would be quite convenient, perhaps RAF Akrotiri, but the UK won't touch this with a barge pole until after the Olympics close and Cyprus is of course politically controversial.  But I agree, what made Libya so successful and in the end non-controversial was the complete absence of boots on the ground.
