Why is Sarkozy suddenly showing sympathy with the Japanese – Nuclear Dollars

The French President Sarkozy has become the first international leader to visit Japan after the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Disaster which has simmered for more than 3 weeks.Japan and France do not have a strategic relationship like USA and Japan does nor do these countries have shown great friendship in the past.So it surprising why Sarkozy has gone to Japan on such a short notice to pledge all French help to the Japanese in the wake of the radioactivity leaking from the reactors in northern Japan.Note France has been the leader in the Libyan no fly zone as well calling for Western intervention in a mostly domestic civil war.France has not got too much involved in other civil wars raging in the Middle East.It has been selective over it choice for jumping up and down over human rights.The glaring Western and French silence over the Saudi invasion of Bahrain and violent suppression of its citizens by the Middle Eastern dictators tells of a hypocrisy.

Why is the UN not Enforcing a "No Fly Zone" in Yemen and Bahrain despite Horrendous Civilian Massacres – Western Double Standards

The United Nations has voted on enforcing a "No Fly Zone" in Libya as Colonel Gadhaffi's forces backed by aircraft and artillery have bombed their way to a winning position in Libya.The democratic protests in Libya has been violently suppressed by the despotic regime over there which has appeared at times as mad and lunatic.The rebels despite popular support have been cowed down by the massive military power of Gadhaffi and his mercenaries.This has finally made the United Nations Security Council decide on attacking Libyan army by Air and enforcing a "No Fly Zone'.Note this has been done despite misgivings by China and others who abstained.However the West led by France has been adamant on helping democracy.

No Global Media Outrage as American made Apaches Gunships used by GCC against Bahrain citizens calling for UN Help

The Western Nations have maintained a deafening silence as the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) which is the gang of Sunni nations in the Middle East has used Apache Gunships against unarmed citizens of Bahrain.The US and the western media (blogs as well) have been strangely silent on this murderous attack on peaceful citizens.Bahrain has been on the Boil as Shia citizens have been demanding their legitimate rights this rich island nation.However the rulers which are from the Sunni minority have not budged instead they have called foreign troops to kill their own citizens.Global "Human Rights Champion" the US and its leader Clinton and Obama are hypocritically silent,so is the normally frantic Sarkozy.

Defender of Human Rights Obama has different standards (read none) for Pakistanis as Widow Suicide for Justice goes in Vain

John Kerry is doing the rounds of Pakistan and Obama has called for the release of the "diplomat" on the grounds of diplomatic immunity which is a joke.The widow of one of the killed men had done suicide because she was sure that her husband's killer would not be brought to justice.The US is doing exactly that by threatening to cut off all aid and break off diplomatic ties.It is this kind of behaviour which leads to more anti-Americanism around the world and displays the American hypocrisy over defence of human rights and democracy.I am sure if such an incident had happened in USA,the murderer would be facing a lethal injection in a very short time.However in an unequal world human rights for an American and a Pakistani or three is different.
