Libyan hypocrisy

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North - Townsville Bul­letin Tues­day, March 22, 2011

THE hypocrisy. Sad­dam Hus­sein for a gen­er­a­tion mur­dered his own peo­ple and used them as guinea pigs dur­ing nu­mer­ous chem­i­cal at­tacks. The UN did noth­ing be­cause Rus­sia, France and China all had eco­nomic in­ter­ests in that coun­try. Now Obama and the UN strike Libya at its con­ve­nience, ap­par­ently it’s OK be­cause none of the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil per­ma­nent mem­bers have a ma­jor eco­nomic in­ter­est in Libya.... yet. Libya is the world’s tenth big­gest oil pro­ducer. DAR­RELL MORRIS,
