Paying the Price” – Again.

Now Libya’s people are “paying the price”, for being, well, Libyan, I am reminded of another people that, to use the words of the appalling Madeleine Albright, then US., Ambassador the the UN., were : ” … a price worth paying.” She was talking of the deaths of half a million Iraqi children, on 12th May 1996.

What Ukraine and Russia should do to avoid Libya’s fate By Alexander Savchenko

23 March 2011 — Strategic Culture Foundation

I feel sorry for Libyans. But similar fate also expects other nations, which have rich natural resources – oil, gas, ores, arable lands and fresh water.

Libya and Yemen — Study in Contrast By Prabir Purkayastha

22 March 2011 — MRZine

Of Principle and Peril By the Editors of MERIP

22 March 2011 — Middle East Research and Information Project

Reasonable, principled people can disagree about whether, in an ideal world, Western military intervention in Libya’s internal war would be a moral imperative. With Saddam Hussein dead and gone, there is arguably no more capricious and overbearing dictator in the Arab world than Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi. The uprising of the Libyan people against him, beginning on February 17, was courageous beyond measure. It seems certain that, absent outside help, the subsequent armed insurrection would have been doomed to sputter amidst the colonel’s bloody reprisals.
