This was not really an analysis of the Libya tragedy but more of a collection of newspaper articles. I was really disappointed as I expected more. There was an inadequate discussion of the key questions: (a) what was the actual legal authority for the allied attacks? (b) Were the UN SCRs properly obtained or did the SC artificially stretch the wording of article 39 of the UN Charter to justify what they did? (c) Did it lead inexorably to the death of the so-called doctrine of Responsibility to Protect? (d) What justice should there be for the murders of Gaddafi and his son, as these were war crimes? (e) Was the destruction of Sirte by NATO a war crime? (f) Was genocide carried out against the Tawerghans? And so on. It failed to look impartially at the actions of both sides. Since the campaign, we are left wondering if the law of unintended consequences has once more manifested itself.

But not as long as I would of liked it to be.
A little more background about Libya's history would of been good.

This a well written account of the liberation of Libya and the aftermath a year later by 2 very experienced and capable Guardian foreign correspondents who have seen what it was like on the ground in Libya and importantly have spent time interviewing local people with all their hopes and despair. Highly recommened covers the vital ground in a short period of time.
