When Force is a Moral Necessity: The Failure in Rwanda and the Challenge of Libya

In his book Shake Hands With the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda, retired Lt. Gen. Roméo Dallaire, who headed the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Rwanda in 1993-94, recounted the human disaster in that African country and asked how humanity could abandon the Tutsis as thoroughly as we did. In an eight-minute video archived on the Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly website, Dallaire delves into the spiritual, ethical and moral ambiguities and contradictions he encountered while stationed in Rwanda and that continue to haunt him, and he unveils his sense of the conditions that make the use of interventionary force a moral necessity for a civilized people. Using the same criteria, in a second, three-minute video, he charges the West with failing its responsibility to protect the innocent in Libya by refusing to put boots on the ground. You can access both videos here.
