Syria Bloodbath Mocks Hapless “Duty to Protect”

5,000 people dead, including 300 children. Hundreds, perhaps thousands missing. ....
Where is NATO, which cheerfully bombed the Great Loon’s forces in Libya? Where are the Saudi troops, which marched resolutely across the causeway to Bahrain in order to stop Iranian “meddling”? Where are the Qatari warplanes that joined the fight in Libya? Where are the Turkish soldiers, who threatened to join an international intervention in Syria? Where are the American troops that invaded Iraq to topple a mass murderer? Where, in short, is the international “duty to protect”? It has failed. -- | Via Meadia

War is biblical al be it old msetatent I m not sure about Libya as I don't believe the motivation for the war has anything to do with the people of Libya. In my opinion I don't think UK and US would be as interested in freeing the Libyan people if Libya was not a oil producing country.No this is not a just war because the motivation is wrong. China has a huge problem with human rights but the West find it to big a gamble to interfere with it, not because they worry about the peoples well fare but because it would be economic suicide. The western governments don't care about the people living oppressed lives they use it as a justification WHEN it suits them. But in the case of China it would not benefit the West in financial term so the people can stay living oppressed and frightened of doing or saying the wrong thing.
