And it's better now?

Actually it is much worse now. There is nothing good about the situation as it is now. Libya was vastly better off under Gaddafi. The present situation is a total catastrophe that is not good for anyone except maybe Al Qaeda. In particular, it has been terrible for progressive and feminist forces in Libya. Libya is now a failed state; worse than that, it is not even a state at all. It is an anarchic place that for all intents and purposes has severed into more than one state.

Other broken states in the region now are Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Somalia. The West is responsible for the destruction and ruin of Iraq, Syria and Libya (coincidentally, all enemies of Israel), but not for the ruin of Yemen and Somalia.

The US is like a drunk in a Pottery Barn store. Every country we get militarily involved in turns into a destroyed, partitioned Hellhole of a failed state. It seems all America can do anymore is destroy countries. Way to go, USA!
