Ok...I totally get that. It's kind of that I am often not really expecting a debate or that anyone is going to go deep into it so I don't bother.
Deal. I will try to be explicit and to not indulge my tendency to sweeping statements.
Yes, I actually think that the position of being the leader in the world in any epoch entails certain responsibilities..... because you don't get to that position without a deep morality as well as the bad things.
This is just my own opinion obviously but I feel that one can't really be at the head of civilization without being civilized.
Of course a country may not always live up to that and may often fall short...but they should try to uphold a morality.
I don't know the answer to this. It's difficult to predict isn't it?
I think the problem is that the defectors have gone elsewhere - Malta or Tunisia. A lot of people are leaving because of the threat of death.
In Egypt it was different - the Egyptians were committed to stay and work for the country. It's different in different places...maybe the Libyans bit off more than they can chew but they are in trouble now whatever.
Egypt was a different scene because the people had Mubarek over thrown already and the military was on their side.Libya still has this psychotic leader who still has the army on his side and pro Libyans also who respect him.He has power unfortunately still.
