On March 17, 2011, the United Nations Security Council authorized a ‘no-fly zone’ over the air space of Libya; as cited by SC/10200.

“Demanding an immediate ceasefire in Libya, including an end to the current attacks against civilians, which it said might constitute “crimes against humanity”, the Security Council this evening imposed a ban on all flights in the country’s airspace — a no-fly zone — and tightened sanctions on the Qadhafi regime and its supporters.”

It is poetic justice that as a fomenter of discord, Mr Gaddafi now finds it in his own backyard. But, this discord within Libya does not give any other individual nation an open invitation to foist its military and political muscle on Lybia.
