I can't really add much to what others are saying on this issue, except perhaps to say that the revolutions sweeping the Arab world once again show the stark contrast between the courage of the people in the streets and the cowardice and dithering of the "international community" and its leaders.
I am an anthropology, archaeology, and animal cognition writer with 20 years' experience covering these fields for Science, Audubon, Scientific American, SAPIENS, and other publications. I also cover sexual misconduct for The Verge, Scientific American, others.
