Abbott Supports No-Fly Zone Over Libya

What hope have we got? Now Opposition Leader Tony Abbott supports a 'no-fly zone' over Libya. He said "The important thing is that the people of Libya deserve reform not repression," and "I think Colonel Gaddafi and his crew have well and truly forfeited any legitimacy and that the sooner we have a more democratic form of government in Libya the better."

So it looks like Australia is going to be involved yet again in bringing democracy to the middle east, although I fail to see that it is any of our business. Granted, dictators like Gaddafi are to be despised, but surely the Egyptian example is better than outsiders from the west getting involved. Blind Freddy can see that it will be called another invasion because that's what it will be.

Good men have said that the world would be a better place if dictators were to end their rule and I agree, it probably would be. But surely the price of another war is just too high.
