Hugs from Libyans

Nicholas Kristof, co-author of “Half The Sky”, has published an op-ed in the New York Times regarding his perspective on American military action in Libya. While the general consensus in the United States seems to be that we are out of bounds in regards to this action, Kristof asserts that we are indeed acting from a humanitarian standpoint, and that this sentiment is echoed among the Libyan people who are being subjugated by a tyrannical dictator. His assertion is supported by refugee organizations.

I think that Kristof’s point of view is definitely worthy of consideration, and I encourage others who are supporters of social justice to consider the viewpoint as well.
