US/European Intervention in the Arab World

The Riz Khan show from last week on Al Jazeera English conveniently follows the topic I wrote about in my last blog. The topic covered on Al Jazeera addresses the curiosity many have as to why the West is intervening in Libya but not in places such as Bahrain and Yemen. This episode shows that the Arab and Islamic World are keenly aware that Western interests in Libya could be less than amicable. This skepticism is understandable when looking at the overall legacy (past and present) of Western policies in the North African and Middle Eastern regions.
