No fly zone over Libya

I am pleased that the UN have approved a no fly zone over Libya.  It may have come too late but provides some help to retreating rebels that otherwise face the certain prospect of being massacred by the tyrant Gaddafi’s forces.  The US, Britain and France led the move – they were backed by Arab countries and China abstained – an interesting policy move from the normally non-interventionist China.

I assume the initial caution over the move stemmed from the fear of being dragged into an ungoing conflict if Gaddafi nevertheless prevails.  That fear in turn reflects unreasonable criticism of allied attempts to end tyranny in Iraq and Afghanistan.
