Amazing that Obama actually gave a good Libya speech

That didn't harp on the idea of the U.S. as a noble defender of all the oppressed of the world. More importantly, he rejected in a very soft way the idea of forceful regime change. Usually, as was the case with Bush and to a certain extent with Clinton, calls for the U.S. to engage in noble goals are often chained to regime change in ways that benefit the people doing the changing more than the oppressed.
