The West acts, at last

French planes have begun to attack Qaddhafi's military forces as they encroach on Benghazi, Libya's second-largest city and the main stronghold of the rebellion. More Western forces are on the way, including the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle.

Intervention has begun far too late and after far too many brave people have already died -- but at least now there's real hope that disaster can be avoided.
