Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I saw a comment to the effect that "there is no UN arms embargo for LIBYA", (my caps), by which I understood that the argument was that the embargo applied to Gadaffi.
The language of the resolutions refers to "the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya", which is the official name of the Libyan state under Gaddafi. The National Transitional Council refers to themselves as the legitimate representatives of the "Arab Republic".

That's an interesting legal(istic) nuance...

So, in what may be my last act of "advising", I'll advise you to cut the jargon. -- My old PhD advisor, to me, 26/2/11
