Revisting the "Humanitarian" Intervention in Libya

Jeff Bachman

Five years ago, on March 17, 2011, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1973 (2011) authorizing "regional organizations or arrangements...to take all necessary measures...to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack" in Libya. The resolution was adopted with ten votes for, none against, and five abstentions.

So call out Brzezinski and PNAC by name, why don't you. There was little to be "surprised" about in the Libya version of "Arab Spring". Why write about this issue without the context of the playbook?

When Mars rules, the only definitive precept is "Might Makes Right." That is code for the MIC and its Deep State CIA enablers.

Remember when Bernie Sanders stood up and gave a speech against the Libyan intervention?

Neither do I.

Just like I don't remember him speaking out against drones or bombing Syria.
