Canadian warship en route, JTF2 sent to Libya

16392 Elinor Sloan, an international relations professor at Carleton University, said the situation in Libya is not unlike the one in Kosovo in 1999. Should the international community fight back against Gadhafi’s regime, Canada could play a role similar to the one it played in Kosovo.

“Kosovo was a humanitarian circumstance. It was the Serbian government acting against the Albanian minority and we deployed CF-18s there,” she said. “The entire allied operation was precision air power striking resources of the Serbian government with the goal of getting (then-president Slobodan) Milosevic to change his behaviour.

“In this case, we’d be striking Libyan government assets with the goal of getting Gadhafi to change his behaviour.”
