Zakaria on US and International Intervention in Libya

Fareed Zakaria has a very interesting and, I think, insightful take (here) on the challenges and strategic implications of the US role in the Libyan civil war. I agree with him that the Obama Administration's multilateral approach, especially the support of the Arab League, is a very important development. I also share his concern that the limited goal of the military intervention - humanitarian protection of Libya's citizens against their own brutal dictator - does not necessarily imply the regime change that President Obama says that he wants. The big question is whether the military intervention in Libya will ultimately be accomplish either aim.
