ABSTRACT
The author reflects upon the probity of air strikes by Western allies executed against the military forces of Libyan dictator Colonel Moammar Gadhafi, and the need for a unified strategy among Western allies. An overview of the military operations and responses to revolutionary forces in Libya by the United Nations (UN) and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is presented. The author suggests that the next phases and goals of intervention in Libya are unclear and in need of explanation.
