    That guy will do anything to hang on to power, as he's demonstrated over and over again.  He declares ceasefires, then shells cities.  He continually says one thing, then does another.  And tbh., he's obviously just not all there anymore either and suffers from a severe form of narcissism.

    I'd be cautious about seeing bogeymen around every corner with this intervention in Libya.  NATO is not the evil empire of Star Wars, but actually consists of a fairly diverse group of mostly democratic and liberal nations.  Do the nations involved in this also have their own motives? Yes.  Does it mean that these motives are always nefarious?  No.

    That NATO is not a monolithic block can be seen in the fact that quite a few members strongly resisted participating in the Iraq War, despite tremendous amounts of pressure being brought to bear on them by Bush/Cheney.
