Who do you think you are kidding Mr. West?

Hey you - Mr. West, and you too Mr. UN. You who wear the white good-guys' hats and them fancy boots filled with self-righteous hypocrisy that you use to kick the downtrodden. Tell me something will ya guys?

Libya - you know the country that everyone knows has been run by a ruthless, cunning bastard for 42 years - you really don't want to help those poor folk fighting for that word you so quickly use to justify the atrocities you have committed in Iraq and Afghanistan, do ya huh?

You have the means, you have the backing of the opposition forces, and you have sure proved in the past that you have the determination to interfere any God Darn country you want - even if you do have to invent reasons, which in the case of Libya, you didn't need to do. The oppression, the atrocities, the massacres were - and still are - there for everyone to see.

So what was it that has stopped you? Yeah, I know - you had to get consensus, you had to get approval, all nations acting as one dontcha know.

Bulldust.

If you had genuinely wanted to help, you could have acted almost immediately - as you have before.

For every word of every speech you make, someone in Libya dies, is imprisoned, or tortured.

Perhaps you should ask a question of yourselves -

What good am I if I know and don’t do
If I see and don’t say, if I look right through you
If I turn a deaf ear to the thunderin’ sky
What good am I? (Bob Dylan)

If you can't answer that question - there are plenty of folk who can.

Wherever you may be - be safe
