they have a plan

Still on Libya, Quilliam has released a seven-point plan which you can read on Harry's Place.  It strikes me as intelligent stuff.  Mainly to do with cooperation with the INC in Libya, including military cooperation.  The following is worth noting:

Nb. There is no conceivable or foreseeable need for large-scale deployment of Western or foreign ground troops in Libya. The INC have adequate followers and supporters. If they receive sufficient support from the international community as outlined above, they will be able to conduct all major ground military operations themselves. External military advisors working with – and at the request of – the Libyan opposition (as was done with the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan in 2001 and with Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq in 2003) can nonetheless also have a huge additional impact if used wisely.
