Weapons won't make Libya more democratic

Neither military intervention nor supplying arms to the Libyan opposition will advance the process of democratisation in the country, writes Daniel Passent in the online edition of the news magazine Polityka: "President Obama said the US will intervene when its own security is threatened, but also to protect universal values. I understand that the United States must support the revolutions in the Arab World - just as they supported those in Eastern Europe. But it is somehow naive to believe that with the help of Tomahawk missiles the democratic process will be accelerated in Arab countries. The operation in Libya has aroused doubts from the start. ... For that reason I support the standpoint of the Polish government, which makes no bones about its reservations here."
