LETTER: U.S. forces should be slow to attack Libya further

Below is one reader's response to the Missourian's Today's Question for Monday, in which we asked if the U.S. was justified in attacking Libya's ground forces last weekend.

Yes, I think what the U.S. did in bombing Libya was a good thing. It is sad that it had to come to this point because war of any sort should not be taken lightly. The cause seems warranted because of the human rights violations under Moammar Gadhafi. I don't think that we should move much farther than we already have in attacking Libyan forces. The U.S. and British forces have given the people of Libya and the rebel forces a chance to change their country themselves and that is how it should be.
