Basically what you are suggesting, is that all of a sudden, America is unable to restrain its military might, to sort out this repeat and long term offender, whilst forsaking all the other crimes against humanity being perpetrated across the world?
There is a consistency in what rules are enforced and which are not, and it is not being discussed. This is wrong.
There is inconsistency in how we (US and western world in general) apply those rules, I totally agree with you. And it is very wrong...Has been since...WW2? Look at Israel..need to say more? They regularly bomb and shell and produce civilian victims..no one even peeps.
No..what I'm suggesting is that now Daffy "shitted out of the pot" (as we say in Rome) made a mess that could not be ignored and infact is not being ignored.
How much of the attention is BECAUSE Lybia has oil? A lot is my guess...but then in 2011 is that something that still surprises you?
No war was fought for else than political and or resources gain. Ever.
