Power is nothing without control.
Yeah, because the Euros are doing SUCH a fucking good job at controlling the operation themselves. Decades of sitting on the international sidelines telling the U.S. everything it's doing wrong, and they refuse to even try to see out the job they agreed to. But I suppose it makes it easier for them to blame the U.S..... case in point ^^^^.
NATO takes command of part of Libya operation
BRUSSELS — NATO agreed late Thursday to take over part of the military operations against Libya – enforcement of the no-fly zone – after days of hard bargaining among its members. But the toughest and most controversial portion of the operation – attacks on the ground – will continue to be led by the U.S., which has been anxious to give up the lead role.
This is fucking idiotic. You can't trust NATO to spine up or nut up against anything. No wonder nothing ever gets done multilaterally.
