West wants a Hands Off Policy in Libya

This quote seems to sum up the position of many western powers:
""The longer this goes on the greater the chances of the rebels increasing their combat capability, and the more chance there is for sanctions to bite," said retired British Army Brigadier Ben Barry, of the institute.""
