The World is Yours

As a skeptic on US and NATO intervention I honestly believe the attitude of many is changing in a positive direction. The way of handling Libya is not a projection of Iraq and Afghanistan. Don’t forget it was the warhead Bush who started these interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although Obama didn’t show to be the US leader we have all hoped for but he still has some credit left.

<= Mohamed Bouazizi

In Tunisia the western world supported Ben Ali almost all the way until he stepped down. In Egypt Mubarak enjoyed the support for weeks until the united states and a few European countries were changing their minds. It wasn’t from one day in another. In a few days time they declared in several press conferences their support to the protestors but a day later they have backed Mubarak again. This continued until the last day in which they declared their full support to the youth of Tharir Square.

Libya was in fact the first country where the western world was quite fast to express their support for the protestors. It was France who recognised the National Council in Benghazi as the only legitimate leaders of Libya.

For the very first time in history the Arab League, the African Union and the United Nations are co-operating in a joint strategy to stop Muanmar Gaddafi from killing its own people.

Will this be a turning point in history where we all coming to our senses and realise that world peace and freedom is much better than corruption and suppression? Will we finally understand that money doesn’t solve our problems? Will we understand that supporting corrupt regimes is not giving “us” the protection against “terrorism”?

I am convinced nobody is going to hijack the revolutions of the young people all over Africa and the Middle East. The protestors make very clear demands: Freedom, dignity and respect. They will not accept another extremist group or dictator to speak in their name.

A clear message to all other regimes not respecting human rights: “Be aware, one day you will undergo the same procedure.”

    Dear Frank, I appreciate immensly your clear, thoughtful, logical and positive analysis and opinions regarding the developments throughout the Middle East. I believe that a large group of well intentioned supporters of justice and humanity have made the wrong assumptions about the intervention in Libya and by doing this they have in fact ignored the voices of Libya! Thankyou for writing this. Susan Safi
