We did a great job of overthrowing Gaddafi, but they had nothing to secure the country afterward, and there was, I might add, a similar lack of planning for our pullout in the case of Iraq, where there was very little sense of what would happen after U.S. troops left in 2010. We cant think about these as being kind of quick in and out engagements. We send some troops, kill some people and then come back home to a victory parade. Sadly, it doesnt work that way.
