1. Student 1
“Betts argued that to bring peace, UN and great powers, US in particular on this article, should inevitably choose sides when they intervene in disputes. However, Betts didn’t clarify how to choose the right side. He didn’t give any standards which intervenors should rely on when picking sides. In cases of civil wars, Betts argued that intervenors should support the mightiest of the rivals. However, what about in cases of international wars and disputes?
And on what grounds do great powers become intervenors in the first place? Betts explained that most international interventions were not driven by the material interests of the outside powers but by their moral interests: securing peace and justice. However, even great powers are just states seeking for their own material interests. How can we be 100% sure that great powers intervene in disputes out of pure moral interests?”
