Debating Military Intervention in Libya
Posted by Shadi Hamid

So for those of you waiting for myself and Michael Cohen to go tete-a-tete, you will, sadly, have to wait. In the meantime, here's a bloggingheads.tv debate I did with sometime sparring partner and University of Vermont professor Greg Gause. We discuss the pros and cons of intervention in Libya and America's relationships with allied autocrats in places like Yemen and Bahrain. As you might expect, I defend the US decision to intervene in Libya. For me, it's actually pretty straightforward. If we didn't act, thousands would have likely been slaughtered at the hands of Qaddafi's forces. By acting, we prevented what would have been a bloodbath in Benghazi. And the whole point of humanitarian intervention is that you act before the massacres are committed. In any case, you can watch that part here.

So what is going to stop the Rebels slaughtering the pro-Qaddafi forces. Nobody even knows who the Rebels are, let alone what they are going to do if they win

And of course we don’t know how many people will be slaughtered by aircraft and other weapons of the intervening forces. I suspect that as usual the same people who get all upset over a bomb from Qaddafi airplane blowing up a market and killing dozens but will be strangely silent when a bomb from a intervening aircraft blows up a market killing dozens.
