    "if you really believe that Libya are deserving of their position and have paid their price..." A price they surely did pay, very literally too, and you comfortably draw for today's judgment on what Libya was 15 years ago. The fact is that it is all quite outside the point. Their temporary position in the UNSC has not (and by no means should) be "deserved". It's based on eligibility. Libya is eligible. As a "baddie" it endured sanctions (and sometimes personal accounts of the US), which are lifted insofar of rapprochement with the "West". No compliments: they've long way to improve, and maybe they'd still be the same if they could afford to spit in the eye of the UN the way Israel can and does regularly. Asserting that Libyan record of nineties prejudices its procedural work in SC today requires at the very least a concrete proof. To assert that this record somehow a priori transposes into Goldstone's list of facts is quite inane.
