“There are plenty of smart objections to America’s Libya intervention. But the stupidest one [is] that America shouldn’t wage humanitarian war in Libya because we’re not doing so in Congo, Zimbabwe, and every other nasty dictatorship on earth. The point of invoking the horrors of Congo is not to convince the U.S. to act to stop the horrors of Congo; it is to ensure that, out of respect for the raped, murdered, and maimed in Central Africa, we allow innocents to be raped, murdered, and maimed in North Africa as well. The Congolese, presumably, will find it comforting to know that the great powers are just as indifferent to savagery in other lands as they are to the savagery in theirs.’’
