That’s what Kate the Great, aka, Kate Pitrone, Ashland grad, community college teacher, mother, and longtime high-quality No Left Turns commenter says in a comment to this Powerline post.

What is R2P? How does it differ or not from the stated (or defacto) Bush Doctrine?

Pomocons might also be interested in whether it traces back to John Almighty Rawls, from his international affairs book <i>The Law of Peoples.</i>

All doctrines aside, however, I think the essence of our Libya intervention was the right thing to do. I also like the be-invited-by-European-allies approach.  The hypocritical and Congress-contemptuous manner in which it was done is a distinct issue, as is the even more Constitutionally perilous <i>half-suggestion</i>made by the Obama team that authorization for this war-making came from NATO, the Arab League, and the “international community.”
