Where Is Professor Juan Cole When Libya Needs Him?
Protesters storm provisional government headquarters in Benghazi, Libya. If only Professor Juan Cole was there to assuage those who have suffered thousands of bombs, deaths, and chaos from NATO's "humanitarian" intervention. Dr. Cole tends to support the early militaristic phase of intervention and then, after the dust settles and brutalized people awaken and protest, he pivots to "criticism"(e.g. Iraq, Afghanistan). Or he could just remain silent(e.g. Serbia).
