Why do the Arabs deserve territory captured by Israel in wars it didn’t initiate?
With the American intervention in Libya we see the beginning of an “Obama Doctrine”: It hasn’t really been identified as such, but the outline has been formed. Based on the doctrine championed by the President’s anti-Israel adviser Samantha Power, we now know the United States will follow the lead of Europe, the United Nations and/or the Arab League and intervene in any military action where they perceive civilians are being targeted.
The international consensus that President Obama declared from Brazil was so strong is nothing but. Aside from the fact that his Brazilian host decided to abstain, rather than support, United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, the international “consensus” is beginning to crumble.
