One Cheer for France

Moving ahead of its allies, France on Thursday became the first country to recognize Libya’s rebel leadership in the eastern city of Benghazi and said it would soon exchange ambassadors with the insurgents.

Good for them. They are toothless as a military power so they're using what little leverage they have. France has a long history in North Africa so they're not operating in a vacuum.

Now can we stop screwing around with Libya and get serious?
