Tiny morsels are good. Uncle Sam likes bite-size countries that are easy to digest.

Regime change could only be valid if it came from the people of that state.


But wasn't that exactly happening in Libya?


Tiny morsel a state may be, but there is no moral reason important enough for any big power to invade and change the ruling regime


If a regime treats its people the way Libya did and hurts binding international laws and if the majority of the international community agrees, I believe this is moral reason enough to at least protect the pursued rebels. (Invading, however, is a diffrent topic. But there is no invasion in Libya.)
