Lybia in crisis

The situation in Lybia must be appalling for the people who live there. They have been under the control of a dictator who does not have any intention of surrendering power.

But the western powers have, in the past, flirted and courted the friendship of this same man so questions must and have been asked about how policies change from one day to the next. Why do we not get involved, for example, with situations in countries that are not oil rich? And should we be doing something with states that repeatedly ignore UN resolutions? I can think of two such examples not very far from us??

Saying all of that it remains important to ensure that ordinary people who are simply the victims in all of this do not suffer any more so I welcome the UN resolution as long as Tony Blair is kept well away from any projects to resolve this...
