China: Gaddafi Has to Go

In a short post today, ‘Dictators have no internal affairs,’ the world's most widely-read blogger, Han Han, reflects on the developing situation in Libya:

身边有不少人都很关心利比亚的乱局,甚至还有一个比利亚的球迷一直以为是比利时出事了。中国投了一票支持制裁,一票弃权禁飞,让人欣喜。今天又有不少人为卡扎菲吵的不可开交,当然他们分成了两派,一派的意思是卡扎菲作恶多端,专横腐败,滥杀平民,炸毁客机,应该被联军消灭,还有一派的意思是那是利比亚的内政,其他国家不应该干涉,西方国家无非想从利比亚得到一些石油或者转移自己国家的内部矛盾,居心叵测。

More than a few people around me are paying close attention to the turmoil in Libya, and even one fan of Libyan football I know still thinks it's Belgium that has gone awry. China voted once to impose sanctions, and abstained in the vote to establish a no-fly zone, how wonderful. Now, today, people won't stop fighting over Gaddafi, and of course they have split into two camps: one says Gaddafi is completely evil, a corrupt tyrant who slaughters civilian and blows up airliners and ought to be obliteration by the Coalition. Then there's the other camp which says these are Libya's internal affairs and other countries should not interfere, that Western countries either just want to get some oil out of Libya or take the focus off their own internal conflicts, that they have ulterior motives.

朋友转而问我的观点,我说,我的观点特别简单,独裁者没有内政,杀戮者当被侵灭。昨天正好是十九年来最大的月亮,无论是谁,无论为了什么,代表月亮消灭他。

So when friends ask for my view, I say, my view is very simple: dictators have no internal affairs, and slaughterers ought to be invaded and eliminated. Yesterday just happened to be the brightest moon in 19 years. It doesn't matter who, it doesn't matter why; in the name of the moon, annihilate him.
