    The supposed “responsibility to protect” has taken America into a war on the side of the ultimate killers of innocents. (See also "Rebel Libya: ‘Brothers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, now is the time to defend your land!" on the Tatler.) In the absence of any evident national interest justification for bombing Libya, the Obama administration is said to have been motivated by the so-called responsibility to protect — or “R2P” per the wonkish English acronym. In American discussions, “R2P” has quickly come to be associated with Obama advisor Samantha Power. But “R2P” did not emerge full-grown from the...

    French ground troops have entered the centre of the main Ivory Coast city of Abidjan for the fist time as incumbent leader Laurent Gbagbo refuses to quit. Helicopter gunships are firing in the area around Mr Gbagbo's residence. On Sunday, UN and French helicopter gunships began a new operation they said was aimed at destroying heavy weapons near Mr Gbagbo's residence. Mr Gbagbo has been refusing to cede power to internationally-recognised President Alassane Ouattara.

    France began reinforcing its garrison in Ivory Coast yesterday as thousands of workers took to the streets of Abidjan, the commercial capital, in a protest against a Paris-brokered peace deal. About 600 extra French troops were on their way, mainly to protect the 16,000 expatriates living in Abidjan after a wave of anti-French riots. The violence was triggered by a peace deal brokered by Paris which Christian southerners see as a sell-out to the rebel groups whose forces control most key towns in the north. Angry demonstrators again gathered around the French embassy in Abidjan amid a sea of orange,...
