Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If Sarkozy pushed this through ... then good on him.

I am stoked.  I really am.  For the first time in ... god, I don't know how long ... the goddamn "international community" through the UN is actually acting.  And BEFORE massive genocide has occurred.  And, let's face it, if asshole had managed to retake Benghazi the death toll would have been horrendous.

This takes me back to when I was dumbass enough to think the UN was a force for justice.

I wonder what China got in exchange for its abstention.

I am not convinced that the rulers care about Libyan lives. They might do the right thing for the wrong reasons, but they might as well do the wrong thing for the wrong reasons. If seperatism starts being promoted, I for one will suspect that the Libyan rebellion will be the prelude to the Libyan civil war, which is going to be an example as to what happens in rebellions.

And in other news, Saudi troops help defeat rebellion in Bahrain.
