I don't think it's any of the West's business. It's not like Libya because of the sectarian element, namely that the regime and security forces are dominated by a sect called the Alawis, and consequently there is a danger that victory for the Opposition would result in a slaughter of Alawis comparable to the impending oppression of the Iraqi Sunnis.
I disagree. It is comparable to Libya. Do you not think that all of the tribes in and around the Sirte area of Libya are in for some serious payback?
It's the same formula over and over. Minority dictators propped up by the west when it suits and then toppled when it suits.
Who knows if NATO will go in. There isn't much strategic importance to going in so that will most likely trump the moral duty given the precedent set in Libya.
