Default Arab League Regrets Faustian Bargain

What were they thinking?

CAIRO—The Arab League secretary general, Amr Moussa, deplored the broad scope of the U.S.-European bombing campaign in Libya and said Sunday that he would call a league meeting to reconsider Arab approval of the Western military intervention.
“What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone,” he said in a statement on the official Middle East News Agency. “And what we want is the protection of civilians and not the shelling of more civilians.”

LOL. What did Mr. Moussa expect, something like a school crossing guard operation? You let the US and the "West" in there and they will break shit...often and for a long time. This is an Iraq-style occupation in its early stages.

This is what happens when you do deals with the devil. The muslims of all people should know this. Happy Purim.

In this case you're absolutely right. I think it's that Middle Eastern, semitic thing.
First the rebels in Libya reject outside help, 'we can do it alone.' They even kick out some Brit commandos. Then they get their ass kicked by Kheddafi's superior weopons and they then beg for help. First air cover and then even more. The Arab league goes along...and then backtracks,
....beware the power of the cabal.
