    Nancy Youssef, McClatchy Newspapers, reports that a day of battle shows Libyan rebels’ weaknesses.

    I just saw a very interesting discussion on Al Jazeera about Libya, with Mark Perry, a former Israeli
    Ambassador to the US (forgot the name), and Professor Johan Galtung. Galtung is a Gandhi-inspired (like the
    protestors in Egypt and Tunisia) 80 year Norwegian who has been deeply involved in peace studies for more
    than half a century. Here is – in extenso – an article published two days ago by Johan Galtung on the invasion
    and the UN resolution:
    “Libya: The War Is On
    by Johan Galtung, 28 Mar 2011
    Indeed. A physician who heals only friends, not foes, is no physician but party to a war. An organization that
    protects only our side civilians not the other side is not humanitarian but belligerent. We are far from the
    Hippocratic Oath in world affairs. Thus, there is nothing historical about the March 17 Security Council
    Resolution 1973.
    Historical would have been a resolution protecting possible foes and restraining friends of the Anglo-
    American-French trio dominating the UN Security Council, putting their NATO at the UN disposal as a world
    cop. The NATO that made headlines the same day exactly for killing civilians, a daily routine it seems, in
    Afghanistan. Historical would have been R2P, a no-fly zone over Gaza, over Bahrain, over Pakistan,
    Afghanistan; against themselves. What happens now is intervention supporting one side against the other. It
    is normally called war.
    True, President Obama became more multilateral than Bush. But that is a formalistic perspective. The
    problem is not who and how many decide but what they decide. Also true, the resolution excluded the Fidel
    Castro prediction of 21 February that NATO will occupy Libya:

    Ivory Coast has been a U.S. “national emergency” for five years. Ever hear Obama mention it?
    from Obama’s executive order:
    Cote d’Ivoire


  7. DakotabornKansan says:

    Human Rights and Intervention: If Libya, Why not Cote D’Ivoire?
    Mark Goldberg, UN Dispatch, on the violence in Cote D’Ivoire


  8. Don Bacon says:

    How cynical that the U.S. should preach to others about human rights. If the world could laugh, it would.

  11. DakotabornKansan says:

    General Petraeus continues to extol the progress of counterinsurgency (COIN) in southern Afghanistan, the Taliban’s heartland. Petraeus cites the Nawa District of restive Helmand Province as a “proof of concept” for counterinsurgency dogma.
