Annals of Humanitarianism

It seems the NATO fleet of the coast of Libya is too busy protecting civilians in abstract sense –– by bombing them –– to find time to answer repeated pleas for help from a ship of slowly dying (civilian) refugees.

It may seem cruel, but one has to have priorities. Colonel Gaddafi has multiple surviving grandchildren, and they're hardly going to kill themselves. The agonizing death of a few dozen unimportant Africans can't be allowed to interfere with the great humanitarian mission.
