Looking back

On the 4 August The New Statesman wrote this on Libya:

It is clear that Mr Cameron, an inexperienced prime minister who no doubt hoped for a Falklands-style triumph, has blundered into another military quagmire. Just 13 MPs voted against military action in Libya. Many more must now wish they had.

Accepting the cautiousness about the postwar stability of Libya, I wonder if this still the case.  Do a majority of MPs regret their vote or was the New Statesman premature in condemning the intervention?
