Yesterday afternoon former President Bill Clinton said in a statement: "The world is watching the situation in Libya with alarm. The government of Libya has a responsibility to respect the universal rights of the people, including the right to free expression and assembly." The EU, Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and other European figureheads made similar condemnations. But it's not always as simple as tyranny against democracy, is it? Lybia is a country in which the West is invested. Mona Eltahaway, columnist and speaker on Muslim and Arab Issues, says Western countries have many interests in Libya that the world should be aware of as the EU, the U.S. and Italy make calls of condemnation.
