You have no evidence for your statements that Gaddafi’s side commits crimes against humanity and the rebels’ side does not. momo

Any violations of international law will be liable to prosecution. Your comment is, therefore, irrelevant. The Libyan government was requested by the UN Security Council (UNSC Resolution 1970 2011) to cease its attacks on civilians which had caused hundreds of deaths. It refused to comply. Therefore, invoking the doctrine of 'the responsibilty to protect' UNSC Resolution 1973 authorized member states to take any necessary action, short of invasion, to bring about a ceasefire. Your position of allowing the suppression of demands for democratic reform by unlimited lethal attacks by the Gaddafi government is not a humanitarian one, as Human Rights Watch, among others, points out.
