Typical Guardian Editorial from 2013. Arguments for not adequately arming the Syrian opposition. It fails to acknowledge the difference between good and bad intervention. The West spent 13 times more bombing Libya, than was spent reconstructing it. The absolute minimum was done to create a functioning army, capable of providing security in post revolution Libya. good intervention is about providing and enabling services to the people of a country. Removing the psychopaths, providing security, ensuring access to food and shelter, expanding representative government, creating a functional judicial system to provide alternative route to resolving disputes about resource allocation, based on a transitional constitution designed to encourage stability and promote dialogue.
