Yet another farce at the UN :(


Anonymous TOTJ Steve said...

And since this is an internal matter among the citizens of one country, what jurisdiction would the U.N. have? And how do we know that we want the "rebels" to win? Why would we assume that anything that comes after Gaddafi is an improvement? A no-fly zone is a huge and dangerous undertaking offering no meaningful return on investment. And once the UN starts interfering in the internal affairs of a country, how doe we know the next place they do it to will be ours?

Sigh. Now you see why I usually avoid politics like the plague on my blog. Thanks for the thought-provoking response, a necessary corrective, I'm sorry to say.

Realpolitik - sure he's an SOB, but he's our SOB

Mubarak was our SOB, we threw him under the bus.

Gaddafi was NOT our SOB, we protected him by tying things up in committee.

So autocrats of the world are on notice, ignoring the US comes at no cost, supporting the US comes at a pretty heavy cost.
