What is the "Official Justification" for OUR War Against Libya?

During their "rebellion" Libyan "rebels" took time out to create a central bank. CNBC senior editor John Carney indicated that this is the first time a revolutionary group, has created a central bank while still in the midst of fighting the entrenched political power. Another anomaly involves the official justification for taking up arms against Libya. Supposedly, the war is about human rights violations, but the evidence is contradictory: According to an article on the Fox News website on February 28: As the United Nations works feverishly to condemn Libyan leader Muammar al- Qaddafi for cracking down on protesters, the body's Human Rights Council is poised to adopt a report chock-full of praise for Libya's human rights record. The review commends Libya for improving educational opportunities, for making human rights a "priority", and for bettering its "constitutional" framework. Several countries, including Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and Saudi Arabia, but also Canada, give Libya positive marks for the legal protections afforded to its citizens -who are now revolting against the regime and facing bloody reprisal. Whatever might be said of Gaddafi, the Libyan people seem to be thriving!
