Questions that I have

Ok, taking away the “so such and such a country is next, right?” questions, and the ‘OMFG WAR FOR OIL!!” stuff for just a second (I know, it’s like taking away someone’s fav toy): exactly what is the world to do when something like Libya is going off? Actually let me rephrase that: Is there anywhere in the world that intervening would be acceptable (bonus points if you don’t automatically suggest bombing Israel)?

What conditions need to exist for intervention to be ok? Because reading comments I’m left with the following list: they must not have oil (or resources), they must be nominally Christian, they must be dominantly white. That leaves what? Vatican City?
