This Is Needless Misery

"We can't be the world's policeman."  Sure, I guess.  Tell it to these folks.

Background here.

True we can't solve the world's problems, but can't we at least lay out a set of principles and then incentives and disincentives for leaders around the world not to do this to their people?  We could tackle alot of this simply by making it easy to offer good governance and hard to offer misery.  This is where I part ways with doctrinaire libertarianism.  We can affect nations' behavior relatively painlessly, and on this evidence, we should.
