If you get the feeling the Western allies haven’t thought this through, you’re right. They appear to be making it up as they go along. As for Canada’s involvement, the only rationale is that NATO called, so we answered. Our media (which always need good guys and bad guys, for storytelling reasons) are generally depicting the fall of Tripoli as a triumph for the good guys. But it may really be a triumph for the forces of chaos and anarchy.Also for the forces of sharia.
