Gaddafi wants in
In to a non-sanction, more open trading, vaguely free passage, non-Arab League type life for his country.
He has wanted in for a long time. And he has moved his position, from handing over the Lockerbie bombers, and paying out compensation to the families of victims of that bombing, to now gazzumping Iran in the nucelar stakes by agreeing to dismantle whatever he's got a la Sth Africa back in the, was it the '80's? I think it was the 80's. Whatever.
This is an objectively good thing, no matter what scheming ol' Muammar is up to. And it is a direct consequence of the colaition's actions in Iraq.
It is an end. Can it be justified by the means?
