While we talk of Libya let me remind you that Clinton/Blair et al allowed the genocide of 800,000 Tutsi's in Rwanda to go unchallenged. How many thousands have died or been tortured at the hands of Robert Mugabe and how many more in Congo/Zaire. Where was the UN then and why is Libya a special case now? What is the difference between Libyans and those other poor souls who were left to their fate?
More to the point perhaps is where was/is Africa's compassion for its own brothers and sisters then and why do they continue to stand idly by while Mugabe terrorises his own people? Never let me hear them call the West hypocrites whilst they continue to tolerate atrocities in their own front yard?
