Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I do not believe in "Liberal intervention" for "humanitarian reasons"...sorry. It is the case that governments are presenting it as "humanitarian intervention" and people would believe it for some reason...probably because we want to see ourselves as "good guys" if possible.
Military intervention is never "humanitarian" even if there was will to be...Cause one have to make a choice which side to take and while we are saving some people we are killing others. When you have lunatics in power who will not restrain from mass killings it really looks like something has to be done (at least western public opinion goes this way). But it is always some hidden reason for military intervention...follow  the money.
