m a historical perspective, states such as the US, France and UK appear to only intervene when their own self-interests are first. This is a key feature of Realism, the political lens which I believe is best suited to analyze events surrounding the Libya intervention. Realism places great importance on the state but the intervention of Libya in 2011 symbolized the surpassing of collective security measures over the state-centric ideals of sovereignty. The intervention can be seen as an example of power politics within international relations and commentators still acknowledge the possibility of ulterior motives. There is evidence to suggest this claim, particularly regarding the United States’ role in Iraq, a country laden with vast resources, highlighting key similarities between Iraq and Libya. One commentator suggested that had Libya’s most significant resource been carrots, there would have been no United States-led intervention. (Garner, Ferdinand, & Lawson, 2016) The protective shell of sovereignty was seemingly abused by Gadhafi’s forces as sovereignty allows state rulers to act in their states best interests, regardless of international opposition. Sovereignty was legitimized in order to guarantee non-intervention in the internal governance or domestic affairs within a state. The evidence of the failure in Libya is represented by the new role Libya plays as a terrorist and Jihadist hub. The Obama administration’s involvement in the intervention was conceded as a botched enterprise with insufficient attention being paid to post-conflict planning. The effects of the distribution of weapons and logistics by NATO to rebels still reverberate around the region today. Furthermore, a Human Rights Watch investigation concluded that at least 72 civilians were killed as a result of the NATO air campaign. This is evidence contradicting the claims that the majority of casualties originated from the Qaddafi regime (Abrahams, 2015). The consequences of the intervention are evident today as criminal organizations and Jihadist groups seized military equipment from the regime and further terrorize citizens. Critics also comment that “the tribal and fragmented nature of Libyan society and the lack of democratic experience suggest that any transition to democracy would have been long and difficult.” (Mimoun, 2014)
