OIL. Thats the only reason the yanks are backing this. If they hobnestly believe they are sticking their nose in someone elses business to help the people out, and rid them of tyrants, why aren't they in North Korea? No oil, thats why. They don't give a crap except for themselves.
Of course, it also has oil, which is the go-to excuse for anyone with a superficial and anti-Western understanding of world affairs. Yeah, the presence of the most important commodity to the world economy might influence how states react, definitely don't discount it, but if you want a cynical view of the world with as little knowledge and critical thought as possible, just blame everything on oil.
