Op-Ed: The problem with attacking Libya

This is the article I published today on the bombing of Libya

Amplify’d from
New York
The attack on Libya by The United States, France, Britain, Italy, members of the Arab League, and others with UN approval is anachronistic and represents a global failure of imagination and anticipation.
Obama with Qaddafi
Each and every leader who faces or will face uprisings and protests from their people are long known to Western and world leaders, as are the decades-long, horrid, repressive conditions of their citizens.
All the powers that now attack Libya have been aware for decades of the depraved conditions of citizens there, and in these countries now facing uprisings, and have done nothing effective to alter these inhuman realities.
