The questionable legitimacy of the use of UN resolution on the intervention in Libya

As we approach the end of the war depart Libyan questions about the real respect for the UN resolution, the Libyan intervention, which involved only the use of force only for the protection of civilians. In fact it did not happen, the increasing use of air power was supplemented by supplies of weapons and equipment teconologici, education, and finally the insurgents use of foreign troops on the ground in Libya. The support, so it was almost complete, with a considerable logistical effort, including economic. The certainty is that legal protection, in terms of international law, provided that the UN resolution, has been violated and that the same resolution was used as a cover to overthrow the regime of Gaddafi. You do not want there to judge whether the end of the Nasser government, unjust and bloody, was right or not, but make considerations on the use of the UN resolution that led to the annihilation. The major players were France, United Kingdom and in a more secluded but no less active, the United States. The more restrictive interpretation of the resolution gave the armed forces, whose intended use was about the only Air Force official, the task of protecting the civilian population in a kind of neutrality between the two contenders. Not so, as demonstrated by recent events, even if they wanted to extend the interpretation of the resolution in the broadest terms, the armed intervention of the Willing has turned now into an alliance with the rebels. Once again reiterates that Qadhafi’s fall is a good thing, however, France, Great Britain, USA and other states that have taken part in the framework of international law have made a violation, which would have been if they had said that War formally to the regime in Tripoli. Politically it will be objected that there was no need to go too fussy, but the violation of the UN resolution, the first thing is heavy before, because it does not seem likely the hypothesis of some punishment, even in the form of warning, and Second undermines the very authority of the United Nations. Now this is further proof of the need for structural reform of the UN, providing for a system of checks and balances and including, above all the creation of tools to ensure their effective autonomy. Only in this way the UN can finally rise to the role for which they were born. From the political point of view this issue will certainly matters, especially among the members of the Security Council, where China and Russia abstaining, obtained in an unconvinced, has allowed the resolution on the intervention in Libya. The question of legitimacy, not of expediency, on which there was agreement, however, can not but be raised and will be interesting to see how it will be resolved. Fortunately it will be impossible for Gaddafi back in its place, but in theory, international law could protect the dictator. This legal gap is attributable to the coalition of the willing, which is hidden behind the resolution determining the victory of the opposing party to Colonel in an opaque manner. The failure to explicitly declare their intent has clarified in a more clear intention: the fall of Gaddafi. But he also highlighted the weakness of the apparatus of international law and especially international organizations.
