the ozzy of the arab world

March 1, 2011 § Leave a comment

When it comes to Libya I’m wedged somewhere between wanting change to come from within and acknowledging the need to international pressure. I will not go as far as to applaud China for once again vetoing the proposal for strategic international action. And I will certainly not go as far as to support President Saleh’s assertion that the US is orchestrating the unrest in Arab regions. But should we put our boots on the ground when we’ve left more than footprints elsewhere? Should we point fingers when we have dirty hands? i.e. Iraq (2003-??), Guantanamo, Afghanistan, Patrice Lumumba, the Indian Removal Act of 1830, just to name a few.
