Discussion Questions About Libya
If the rebels against Qaddafi advance from their present strongholds, will the member states engaging in hostilities in Libya pursuant to UNSC Resolution
1793 1973 bomb them? I don’t think so but I think the resolution might be construed that way.
A collapse of the Qaddafi government wouldn’t automatically create a viable new government to replace it. Protestations of Resolution
1793 1973 to the contrary notwithstanding, wouldn’t the member states engaging in hostilities against the Qaddafi government automatically become occupying powers under the presently prevailing laws of war with an obligation to preserve civil order in Libya until such time as the responsibility could be handed over to a new Libyan government? If not, why not?
