'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)

The gap between this periodic need for the international community to intervene in a state’s management of environmental disasters and the prohibition on intervention could be filled by an extension of a relatively new norm to this situation.

-- Our colleague Linda A. Malone (below left), Marshall-Wythe Professor of Law and Director of the Human Security Law Program, William and Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Virginia, in "The Responsibility to Protect in Haiti," an ASIL Insight that carefully explains how the concept of responsibility to protect may be employed to encourage action by the U.N. Security Council in time of environmental disasters like that pictured above right (credit) -- the aftermath of the January earthquake in Haiti.
