Slight typo?

The Czech Republic has also warned against speaking out in favour of human rights in Libya.

EU Observer are reporting the EU response to the Libya crisis,

Czech foreign minister Karel Schwarzenberg said the EU should not "get involved too much" and that high-minded EU appeals would only serve to "prove our own importance".

"If Gaddafi falls, then there will be bigger catastrophes in the world," he told journalists in the EU capital on Sunday. "It's no use for anyone if we intervene there loudly, just to prove our own importance."
Surely he meant "impotence"?

Both the phrase "to prove our own importance " and the word "impotence" are valid methinks.
