Abstract
The Involvement of NATO forces in the toppling of Libyan longtime dictator Muammar Kaddafi was received with standing ovation in world media. The Libyan dictator was involved in terrorism and in crimes not only against his own people but against citizens of many other countries as well. One question seems to have been overlooked: under what grounds did NATO join an armed non-international conflict? This article will reevaluate the few sources that discuss the issue and offer a model that will help define the ambiguous scenario of humanitarian intervention.
