    Decline of Public Support for Humanitarian Intervention One of the key differences when it comes to Libya and Syria is how western public perception of humanitarian intervention has shifted. In the few short months following NATO intervention in Libya, support for humanitarian intervention in the United States (US) shrunk substantially and in a democratic country taking unpopular moves like promoting another intervention is likely a prominent concern domestically. US President Barack Obama discussed humanitarian intervention with overwhelming fervour and confidence when it came to US involvement in the Libyan Crisis, displaying his self-assurance that the public supported protecting the citizens of Libya. In contrast, Obama’s announcement…

    they would be shown a better place to colonize themselves. My assumption on this is so that the Libyans could use the newly vacant land from them for an expansion onto their own. Thus conquering without actually having to do any wrong to the land that they’d in a sense taken. The Libyans guided the people of Thera to a nicer area where “the sky leaks” so that the Therans could finally receive the rain they so desperately asked the gods for.

    What do you know about Africa?” Africa. Africa had had a lot of violent overthrows lately. Libya. Okay. I could talk about how the AU could not possibly have responded to the coup appropriately because the most appropriate response would have been to prevent it in the first place, to look at what was happening everywhere else and take proactive action instead of coming in afterwards.
