“inaction tears at our conscience”

“I believe that force can be justified on humanitarian grounds, as it was in the Balkans, or in other places that have been scarred by war. Inaction tears at our conscience and can lead to more costly intervention later. That is why all responsible nations must embrace the role that militaries with a clear mandate can play to keep the peace.”

President Barack Obama in his Nobel Lecture in the Oslo City Hall, 10 December 2009

BBC: The UN Security Council has passed a resolution authorising “all necessary measures” to protect civilians in Libya from pro-Gaddafi forces. The resolution expressed grave concern at the deteriorating situation, the escalation of violence, and the heavy civilian casualties…the widespread and systematic attacks currently taking place in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya against the civilian population may amount to crimes against humanity
