1000 Dead Civilians?

April 4, 2011

Last week I heard that our primary reason for the use of military force in Libya was to protect civilian life.

Saturday, I read about 1000 civilians that had died in the Ivory Coast due to internal conflict.

Should we have been involved there as well?

If we are trying to protect civilian life there are many places in the world experiencing turmoil.

We cannot be everywhere.  How will we decide who gets our support?

Our interjection of force into a nation’s internal conflict is not the way to go.
