“Although there exists a need to defend civilians from a regime’s brutality, isn’t the Libyan case yet another example of European hypocrisy in view of the way Europe has behaved towards Gaddafi in recent years or even months?… If we want to defend people against dictators, reprisals, torture and prison, that principle must be universal and not invoked only when it is convenient, profitable or safe.”

Well said, Polish prime minister Donald Tusk explaining why Poland is not supporting the NATO campaign against Gadaffi and saying that Europe only intervenes when oil supplies are at risk. That goes for you too, Uncle Sam.
