Competing theories claim the abstention was either a carefully-planned strategy or a tactical miscalculation, but the result—Russian rejection of regime decapitation and Western distaste for further intervention—is easily observed. Although Russia is unlikely to intervene kinetically in Libya, it can passively destabilize the country at almost no cost, stymying Western efforts to end the crisis. Running contrary to years of policies intended to hamper Western democracy-building exercises in the Middle East, the UNSCR abstention marked a short-lived exercise in increased foreign policy cooperation with the West, at the expense of a local sovereign leader. Though Russia had condoned punishment of the renegade Libyan regime, the Russian government still opposed the use of foreign military forces in Libya and feared mission creep beyond the UN mandate. In their response to the Libyan intervention, the Russian government has engaged in greater regional adventurism and more aggressive foreign policy worldwide.

Horace G. Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica , he has been involved in Africa's Liberation Struggles and in the struggles for peace and justice globally for more than four decades. From his years in Toronto , Canada, to his sojourns in Uganda , Tanzania , Zimbabwe , the United Kingdom and parts of the Caribbean, he has been an influential force offering alternatives to the hegemonic ideas of Eurocentrism. In an attempt to theorise new concepts of revolution in the 21st century he has been seeking to expand on the ideas of fractals and the importance of emancipatory ideas.

After seven months of bombardment from sea and air, forces loyal to the National Transitional Council were able to topple the Gaddafi regime and install a new government. This short empirical description of the Libyan case just about exhausts the degree of consensus that exists about the intervention. The UN and its leading Member States were criticized before the authorized action for not responding quickly enough, for changing the mandate to the need to remove Gaddafi, and subsequently for turning a blind eye to atrocities performed by the anti-Gaddafi revolutionaries Milne ; UN OHCHR This kind of contestation around interventions for humanitarian purposes flows directly from the tension between the legitimacy attributed to universal human rights and the relative weaknesses associated with their legal protection and redress Habermas , a topic widely canvassed in other chapters of this book.
