The article discusses the international organization United Nations' (UN) "Responsibility to Protect" initiative and its significance as an international political policy advocating the use of coercive and military measures to prevent mass atrocity crimes. Topics include the UN's Security Council Resolution 1973, its authorization of military intervention in the Libyan civil war, and the political and operational difficulties associated with humanitarian war. Additional information is presented on the legitimacy of international air force strikes on former Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi's regime.
