I don't have a problem fighting dictators and saving unfortunate human beings on a huge scale. But the unevenness of the application and the unilateral action by one country is what i have a problem with.

If the UN got together and agreed a table of the worst human rights offendors and then a majority of (uncoerced) countries agreed to threaten and then (if necessary) intervene (with a multinationally representative force) then ok. But (a) saddam wouldn't have ranked very high in this table and (b) nations are always looking after their own interests and grudges.
