More 'Human Rights' Abuses

More proof (as if any were needed) that "human rights" is being used to disguise/facilitate the power-hungry. By Rich Moran in FrontPage Magazine:
United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, which authorizes a no-fly zone over Libya and the protection of civilians by all means necessary, is the culmination of a decade-long effort to radically strengthen the ability of the UN to intervene in sovereign nations through the “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) doctrine. Behind the initiative are, unsurprisingly, some of the usual suspects: National Security Council adviser Samantha Power and her patron George Soros. Their call to prevent human rights abuses through military intervention masks an agenda to alter drastically the concept of state sovereignty and to allow the United Nations to essentially co-opt the US military.
Yes, because if you call it "human rights" instead of, say, "the naked desire for global dominance" it sounds ever so much friendlier, don't you think? (Suggestion for a new zone in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights: the Mass Bamboozlement Zone.)
