    never police their own neighborhoods as long as they know they can sit back and let the U.S. do it for them.

    A message must be sent:  "This time, the American cavalry will NOT come charging to the rescue.   Clean up your own neighborhood."

    Btw, it's nice to see someone else did a wiki survey of regional air forces in wake of the Libya airstrikes.   There is a huge amount of aerial firepower in that region that is just gathering dust.   Why do these nations even have air forces if they won't use them?
