You see, COIN may have failed in Afghanistan, but it failed because it was Afghanistan. It's going to do a good job in Libya, because well, Libya is no Afghanistan. We failed in Iraq as well? We may very well have, but then again, that was Iraq; this is Libya.

This is what we're going to hear from the more sophisticated interventionist types whether preferring COIN or another trend du jour. Basically, there's no way to bring them down to reality, city on the hill and all.
