It seems to me a lot of international law was created in reaction to crazy evil things done by Europeans. Now we've kissed international law goodbye due to crazy evil things done by Europeans. The Europeans (and Canadians) were full of righteous indignation about the American illegal and immoral attack on Iraq. Now, the Europeans (and Canadians) are attacking civilian-rich targets, completely outside the UN mandate and utterly illegally, on the slight chance they might avoid the total embarrassment of the 'humanitarian intervention' by winning the very long shot of killing Gaddafi. Who has the moral right to complain about any breaches of international law now?
