Awaiting Enlightenment on Libya

I raised this at the start of Saturday's show but we didn't have time to get back to it.

Someone smarter than I am (doesn't narrow the field much) has to explain why we are bombing Libya. I took the president's announcement last week to mean we were sitting it out. I guess he ruled out ground troops but not target practice for our air force.

I'm no apologist for Gaddafi/Gadhafy/Kahdafi/Kadhafy/Whatever, but I thought it was American hubris for presidents to pick sides and deploy military resources in civil insurrections in other countries. If we're at war with Libya then make the argument for it and declare it.
