  1. Great quote on #France & #UK’s #R2P fervour for #Libya from Richard Williamson ~ “Sarkozy’s interest in pushing this was because he completely blew it with Tunisia by basically hanging onto Ben Ali until he was about to land in France. And he was politically hurt by that. And so in the next one that came nearby, he was going to be more Catholic than the Pope, so he took the lead. And a young new prime minister in Great Britain who wanted to play a role in the European continent was happy to join him.”
