    Phyllis Bennis of the Washington-based think tank, International Policy Studies, speaks for a lot of us long-term watchers of UN peacekeeping operations when she says that "the airstrikes are more of a political than a humanitarian operation". She argues that that powerful forces are once again using the UN as an instrument for their own interests, rather than legitimizing it as an institution of international law

    Others, such as Phyllis Bennis of the Washington-based think tank International Policy Studies, says the timing of the operation "strengthens the argument that the air strikes are more of a political than a humanitarian intervention," aimed at helping to "re-establish the French presence in Francophone Africa."

    She says the interventions in both Libya and Ivory Coast suggest that powerful forces are once again using the UN as an instrument for their own interests, rather than legitimising it as an institution of international law.

    "When you have two sides that are defending territory, seeking to take other territory, this is no longer an uprising of a population against a government. It's -- the country is divided."

    "Crucial NATO countries like Turkey, like Germany, and others, as well as countries outside of NATO, simply don't agree with the U.S., the Brits, and the French in exactly what the scope of this military attack should be."

    "'It remains to be seen whether Ban Ki-moon will actually function as General Ban, with any influence over real-time military decision-making,'" said Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism Project at the Washington-based Institute for Policy Studies.

    She said the language of the resolution calls for close coordination by the governments participating in military action in Libya, with the secretary general. 'But it remains quite unclear, both from the actual language of the resolution and from statements of the governments carrying out the military actions in Libya, what, if any, the real role of the secretary-general is to be,' she told IPS.

    "Beyond the calls for governments to 'coordinate with each other and the secretary-general' on their military actions, the only specific role assigned to him is to report to the Security Council what implementation is underway, said Bennis, author of 'Calling the Shots: How Washington Dominates Today's U.N.'"
