From Corey Robin:
(...) Bernard-Henri Lévy, who, when asked by Jon Lee Anderson why he supported the intervention in Libya, says, “Why? I don’t know! Of course, it was human rights, for a massacre to be prevented, and blah blah blah….” Never underestimate the murder and mayhem men will make, just to escape their boredom.:
Hey Corey, it is impossible to take BHL seriously especially you endure the torture of reading him !
That said, given the fact that I was for the Libyan war, I have to say that I still had the naive expectation that great powers learn from their mistake, understand that détruire n'est pas créer and that nation-building requires a nation to have first existed and the humility to realize that only Romans can build Rome.
Je suis encore un peu romantique mais je me soigne !
