Gaddafi accused of rape war crimes

It seems that Libya dictator Muammar Gaddafi has been accused by the International Criminal Court of ordering his troops to rape hundreds of women in response to those who are protesting for freedom in Libya.

I remember about 8 years ago where another Middle Eastern dictator was ordering his troops to rape his own citizens but barely anyone in the international community was willing to do anything about him.

So I ask again, what has changed?

Thanks to @USCrime for the tip.

Libya vs. Iraq

I’m seriously not trying to be a smartass here. I have a serious question.

Why is the UN so eager to authorize military action against Libya yet refused to lift a finger about Iraq? I think that what Gadaffi is doing to his own people, while still brutal, pales in comparison to what Saddam Hussein did to his own people.

So what is the difference?
