Huge congratulations to the people of Libya for their tenacity and hard work in overthrowing a dictator. While the work is not yet done and there are still many military battles yet to fight, the tide had turned on their struggle and it is clear that they have won.  The international community has also really surprised me in this situation, pleasantly so.  I hope the sacrifices and determination of the Libyan people will be an inspiration to others facing similar situations.  I also hope that this successful and relatively painless experience in assisting a democratic movement within a sovereign country makes future operations by Western governments, when requested, more likely.
