Good interventions and bad interventions

Among some on the left in the West and the Arab world: there is this line that there are "bad" imperialist Western interventions and that there are "good" Western imperialist interventions.  They oppose the "bad" US invasion of Iraq, but are certain that US invasion of Syria would be great, progressive, and feminist--very much like NATO's intervention in Libya.
