On Libya, France Takes the Lead

From my most recent NRO article, on the Libya war: “The French made it clear that they were not prepared to appease Arab terror-states and mollycoddle unassimilable Trojan Horses of immigration any longer.

France redefined a no-fly zone as meaning, not what the Arabs and much of the U.N. thought it meant, but the pulverization of Libyan forces, the massive supply of the arms-starved rebels, and the expulsion of Qaddafi.”

Whether you agree or disagree, your comments are, as always, most welcome.
