When this Libya thing started I was immediately reminded of the run-up to the Kosovo intervention. Looks like I was not the only one.
There have been a lot of editorial comparisons to Kosovo.
It’s amazing to me how many adults — even adult males — are still in la-la Land about “humanitarian intervention”. It’s like they never grew up or realized that “power corrupts, and absolute power (can) corrupt absolutely”. But among the Liberals, as long as you slap a humanitarian label on it, no matter how many you kill, it’s OK — as long as it’s done in the name of the international community.
