Meanwhile, In Libya

Dig this.
Snipers shot protesters, artillery and helicopter gunships were used against crowds of demonstrators, and thugs armed with hammers and swords attacked families in their homes as the Libyan regime sought to crush the uprising.

"Dozens were killed ... We are in the midst of a massacre here," a witness told Reuters. The man said he helped take victims to hospital in Benghazi.
Friendly regimes are toppled as we support the uprisings, hostile regimes are ignored as they slaughter protestors. It doesn't look like this will end well.

Given that our government is arguably not competent to meddle in the affairs of our *own* country, why on earth would you want them to meddle in the affairs of other countries?

It looks like we're meddling in half of them - the easy half. Since that's the half that contains all of our allies, doesn't it seem that the situation is monotonically going to get worse?
