    So claiming the "success" of the intervention requires one to completely ignore the current state of Libya, a country that currently has little to no economy.

    Would have it got that way without our intervention? Maybe. But by no measure was our intervention a "success".

      was that there was a violent dictator in charge who in the middle of a rebellion threatened to eradicate his enemies. That's my definition of a failed state. The immediate aftermath of most civil wars are violent so I wouldn't assume it's going to be like that forever.
