ABSTRACT
The author reflects on military intervention in the Libyan crisis under the regime of Muammar al-Gaddafi. He argues against airstrikes to rebels against Gaddafi. He questions humanitarian intervention as justification for the call of airstrikes of U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), alleging that this could be used as precedent for eventual action of the U.S. against Iran. He asserts that intervention should only attain to end violence and not to support a repressive regime.
