ABSTRACT
The author discusses issues regarding the joint air operations over Libya. He notes that France and Great Britain forced the diplomatic pace during the run-up to the air strikes against Libyan leader Mu'ammar Gadhafi's military machine, which was violently oppressing the domestic anti-government movement. He reveals that following the initial air strikes, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) took over the allied air operations.
