Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the U.S. approach to each Arab nation currently facing upheaval should be taken on a case-by-case basis, and America does not intend to intervene in
Syria or other nations facing protests and crackdowns, Politico
“Each of these situations is unique,” Clinton said in an interview airing Sunday on CBS's “Face the Nation.” “We deplore the violence in Syria. We call as we have on all of these governments during this period of the Arab awakening, as some have called it, to be responding to their people's needs, not to engage in violence, permit peaceful protests and begin a process of economic and political reform.
“The situation in Libya, which engendered so much concern from around the international community, had a leader who used military force against the protesters from one end of his country to the other, who publicly said things like 'We'll show no mercy,' 'We'll go house to house.' And the international community moved with great speed in part because there's a history here,” she said.
