Apache attack helicopters as instruments of humanitarian defense
Now the West got involved in this under the pretense that it was a humanitarian crises and we are protecting the civilians, to which many critics, me included, retorted, this is just a war for Libya's oil and pretty soon you'll start dumping the pretense of humanitarian crises and start to call for regime change, and nothing says regime change like an apache attack helicopter.
I'm not really sure how an apache attack helicopter helps in a humanitarian crises, it can't shoot bananas into the mouths of hungry children, but it can apparently topple corrupt dictators, which as you will remember wasn't what was agreed when we started bombing Libya.
Syria of course is coming apart at the seams, the UK have been caught training the Saudi Arabian unit that were so effective in killing pro democracy protestors and the United States ups it's secret drone war in Yemen.
Nice to see the Arab Spring hasn't slowed the usual Western interference and cynical manipulations and calculations.
Libya is about oil and resources, it isn't about humanitarian crises and now it's about regime change. How quickly that mission creeps.
