ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the stance of Brazil, Russia, India and China about dealing with Libya as part of the United Nations Security Council. It was observed that China and Russia are hesitating to join in any Western-led military action under the principle of the responsibility to protect. Meanwhile, India and Brazil, which both aim to have permanent membership in the Council, appear to be allowing the U.S. to act on the protests of their respective regional rivals, Pakistan and Argentina. The author criticizes the Western response to Libya.
