R2P: Protect or protract?

‘Never again’ was the world's reaction to the horrors of the Holocaust and WWII. And the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) is the international community's latest attempt to ensure just that. But after the overstretch of the UN's mandate in Libya and the deadlock over Syria, we ask what the guarantees are that the doctrine won't be abused again.
