"There is going to be a transition taking place in which were are one of the partners among many." - President Obama, at a press conference in Chile.

Huh.  You know one could've said the same thing about Iraq.

The stories are coming out today, now that the liberal media has had a couple of days to digest what just happened and they realize they have some 'splainin' to do.

The 'splainin' appears to amount to, "we wanted to, and we buy our own reasons while we won't buy anyone else's."

We have:

The Liberal Way of War - Ross Douthat, New York Times
We're like Keystone Cops when we fight, but our intentions are pure - because we're "us". What's gon-na work? Teeeeeeeeeeaaaam Work!"
Why Liberals Wanted War With Libya - Peter Beinart, The Daily Beast
as long as we aren't putting ourselves out too much, we can level the playing field so the bad guys have as good a chance of winning as the good guys. Plus we get a front-row seat.
Humanitarian Intervention A "Core Principle" - President Barack Obama

Saddam was really a nice guy, and it had nothing to do with UN Oil for Food kickbacks.  Really. Kurds?  Everyone knows it was global warming that killed them.  I hear the rape and chipper victims were masochists anyway.  Ghadafi, on the other hand ... pure evil.  He's got to stay.  Go. Stay.  Go!
Libya a Huge Test for Atrocity Prevention - Mark Goldberg, UN Dispatch

"all necessary measures" means what it says when it's our guy, and it's awesome!
Me, I'm not at all sure this is a bad thing or a good thing.  Just lookin' for a little consistency on the part of the Left.
